El Rancho Deluxe: tasty morsels of speed, sport and design. Curated by our crack team of contributors – including Megadeluxe viewers. Drop us a line here if you see something out there El Rancho Deluxe worthy, or if you’re an artist, designer, craftsman or a small company with a story to tell.
Some of today’s finds: an SUV that drives on water, shredding on sand, unconventional hero cars, a bicycle with horns, and a few more surprises and finds thrown in at no extra-charge. We’ll keep adding more stuff here through out the week.
“Why call this ‘El Rancho Deluxe?’ Our family used to have a house in the Mojave Desert. There was a farm-house nearby with the most eclectic collection of rusted farm equipment. The farm had no official name, but we lovingly called it El Rancho Deluxe.”

Megadeluxe Rubber Stamped (American Apparel) T-Shirt: Perfect Imperfection
For the past few months we’ve been experimenting with rubber stamps to make our own t-shirts. But like Edison and the lightbulb, we had a few dozen spectacular failures. (Do not worry, only distant relatives were harmed in the process). Using traditional rubber material (that we laser-cut to get exceptional detail) and an in-house secret fabric ink formula – we’ve nailed down the process of making a unique t-shirt.
The cool thing: each time you ink up the rubber stamp, the tee comes out a little bit different. No two of these American Apparel t-shirts will ever be the same, and we like it that way: perfect imperfection.
