What makes our magazine unique above all others is that we strive to do much more–significantly more–than just cover “cool cars.” Like Deadend Magazine, who definitely share our insatiable love for old iron, we try to capture the heritage of the rodding sport, as well as modern hot rodding and customizing. Deadend is also unique in that it takes their readers back to a time when customizing in the backyard really was the name of the game.
Within that very context, it’s good to know that Deadend’s recent cruise night at San Jose, California’s Agave restaurant welcomed and targeted everything that falls under the umbrella of what they describe as “pre ’68 traditional” hot rods and customs.
Deadend’s recent cruise event was nothing less than a time warp, as you may have already gathered from our featured photos. In fact, the gorgeous ’58 Chevy custom that is the featured photo of this article reminds us of just how far lake pipes and a little old-school pinstriping really can go even in the world of more modern custom building.
The event was also one that welcomed all walks of life from the niched world of pre-’68 customs, as lowriders and bikes were also present in harmony with the hot rods that remind us of why American iron really is our all-time favorite. And with a local Mexican restaurant as the backdrop there was no shortage of good food on deck.
A colorful collaboration of deuce coupes and lead sleds, Deadend Magazine’s San Jose cruise night was more than a success. With that in mind, we hope to see all of you guys come out and support the Deadend crew at the Agave restaurant next year!
