  • Eastwood Retail Outlet Grand Reopening!

    This winter we've been busy here at the Eastwood headquarters. We've been remodeling and giving ourselves a makeover. We've hinted at our new photo/video studio, workshop, and hopefully you've already seen the new Eastwood Website. We also wanted to give our retail outlet a fresh new look for anyone that stopped by to pick up anything they need to improve their ride. We've redone the floor, changed the layout, and have close to 10 times the amount of product on display in the store! We wanted to celebrate our fresh new look with a Grand Re-opening Event April 19-28th. We know everyone is busy so we decided to make the event over a week long! We'll be having killer in-store sales on some of our favorite products, a welding tech demo Saturday April 20 from 12PM-1PM, a painting tech demo Sunday April 21 12PM-1PM, AND a FREE GIFT for anyone that cruises in during the event in their collector or special interest car, truck, or motorcycle!

    Check out our flyer below and make sure you stop by and check out our new look and meet some of the gearheads behind the counter at the Eastwood Retail Outlet. We'll be waiting to see what you cruise in with!

  • Hot Rod Homecoming 65th Anniversary Show Coverage- Part 1

    It's no secret that the west coast, specifically southern California or "SoCal" has been the hotbed for Hot Rodding. Many of the legendary customizers, race drivers, companies, and magazines called SoCal their home. By far the biggest magazine in the world of hot rodding is the one and only Hot Rod Magazine. They've been around since day one, and even through all of the ups and downs of the automotive world, they're still around, and as strong as ever. This year marked the 65th anniversary since their inception. In celebration, the crew at Hot Rod Magazine invited the entire hot rodding community to come join them at the Pomona Fairgrounds for a "Homecoming". We were already planning a trip to visit them and some of their sister magazines that week, so we stayed the weekend to catch the show and set up a small booth with our friends at Hollywood Hot Rods.

    This wasn't going to be just any car show, the Hot Rod crew dug deep into their little black book and were able to dig out some REALLY important cover and feature cars from the past 65 years. Everyone in attendance were amazed at what crawled out of the woodwork, and we're not just talking cars! Anyone with a keen eye could spot some legends of hot rodding walking there amongst us mortals.

    Saturday we spent the day breezing through the show and taking pictures of some of the cars that immediately caught our eye. We were so overwhelmed that sunday felt like an entirely different show once we dug in and took in all of the cars in attendance. The show also had some really nice "non-feature" cars that were just hitting the public for the first time. We gotta say that the quality of cars in the show were top notch by any standards. You really had to search every corner of the fairplex show grounds to see some of these cars. Check out our gallery below to see some of our favorites from Saturday. We're still digging through pictures and hopefully this week we can have the next batch up!

    Thanks to all that welcomed us East-Coasters into SoCal, showed us around, chatted with us, or stopped by our booth. We hope we can do it again!

  • Winfield Chop Shop Tour Houston, TX - Part 2

    After the seam was welded, Gene and the crew went ahead and made a new panel for the one rear corner to make it all fit seamlessly. He used Eastwood Plastic Metal Shaping Hammers and Sandbag to form the panel and get the rough shape that was needed to fit the roof.  Click Here To Read Full Post...
  • Eastwood and Street Rodder Magazine 2012 Summer Classic

    Wow, Time Flies! It feels like just yesterday we were tearing down and reflecting about the 2011 Eastwood Summer Classic. We have finalized all of the details and we're gearing up for the 2012 show. This year we hope to make it even bigger then last year, with even more fun for the entire family!

    Like last year, we're planning to have HUGE sales going on during the show at our retail store. So make sure you stop into the store, say hello, and check out the bargains. We will also be doing live tech demos again showing off some of our newest Eastwood Exclusive products. If you stick around after the demo you could even try them out yourself!

    The 2012 show is also the kick-off event for the East Coast leg of the 2012 Street Rodder Road Tour. You can sign up for the entire tour or even a portion of it before, or at the show! Jerry Dixey and the '40 Ford built by Hollywood Hot Rods will be there in the metal! If you thought the road tour car was awesome last year, the Ford will really blow your socks off!

    We will have more details to come as we begin setting up for the show, stay tuned and don't forget to SPREAD THE WORD! Check out the video below from last year's show to see what you missed!
