    One year ago, we decided to break away from a former club, and begin our own. We didn't like the direction the old club was going. We wanted to bring back the tradition of building and finishing, nice custom cars. We put a lot of work and thought into the birth of this new club.. from the meaning of the name, the design of our logo, the traditional style club plaque, to the hand drawn letters in our name. Every member contributed to the start of this club.

    We believe in quality over quantity.. in both the members , and the cars. Being a member of the Sentinels Car Club is an extension of our family, and family always comes first.... THEN come the cars. All of us work on our own cars, while learning and helping each other out. We have come a long way in a short amount of time.. we have a couple more cars in the works, and enjoy every minute we turn wrenches, talk shit, and tell lies!

    Here's to one year down, and many more to come... late nights, busted knuckles, cold beer, cold pizza, paint fumes, over spray, and cruising nose up, ass down all over So*Cal.. Thanks to Eric (Chevy54) for riding up from Costa Mesa, and everybody else who came to show their support.. good times!

    Also, thanks to the numerous car clubs who have supported us through out the year.. LowDown Kustoms car club for the tech support on our first paint jobs! Really appreciate your help guys.. and to Axle for being our number one supporter.. appreciate all the kind words my friend, means a lot to all of us..

    Here's some pics from our little get together Saturday.. and some random pics from our first year..

    This is how our day started.. beautiful blue skies...

    Then two hours later.. Desert thunderstorm rolled through! Even the lightning that hit a few blocks away, didn't keep us out of the swimming pool!

    had to get our "asses' out of the rain!

    Eric (Chevy54) rode up from Costa Mesa to show his support.. thanks brutha!

  13. cars look good.
    just curious about the lack of back windows.
    is that intentional?

    Lol, yeah it's the new flat black or patina, it will catch on... j/k buddy, seriously its just saving up the money to get the glass, window felt and rubbers done. I personally don't want glass installed till I cut/buff/polish my car, then I'll get it done. So hopefully in a few weeks they'll be done ;)

    Excellent way to define a club, run a club and you guys know what the true meaning of a club is. More clubs should be that way... Organized

    Outstanding!..Looks like The Sentinals philosophy , work ethic , priorities, overall vibe and CARS are spot on. Makes me I was in SoCal...If you guys ever do support shirts let me know and I'll represent on the East Coast.

    I`m with JVK54 on this one. I would totally rock a support shirt!
    Congradulations! We try and do the same thing here on the island.
    There are only 4 of us but "With a small group of dedicated individuals...there is nothing they can`t accomplish"
