For those of you that were not here last December, that Mooneyes X-mas Party was the only show I’ve ever seen that was a success even though it was rained out! This year the weather was perfect, 80 degrees, sunny, with blue skies. That’s why we live here!

What a show!! 3 bands all day, great drag racing including a cacklefest, an art auction, over 100 vendors, and over 1200 cars to check out!! Imagination, creativity, ingenuity, attitude, and style were all there for your enjoyment. Cool choppers, crazy hair, great entertainment, and lots of Ink. The “Pin Up Girl” contest was great, it gave the show an extra boost of eye candy parading everywhere. Drag racing helped make the show feel nostalgic with rods and customs lining up together, ready to run. As usual, this was an amazing event.

Thanks for the Show!

 “Space Junkie” is the name of this unbelievable creation from Ian Roussel of Sun Valley, CA. The body started its life as a ’31 Chevy sedan, the engine is a ’48 Olds straight 6. Ian says his paint scheme and colors were inspired by a Neapolitan ice cream bar!
