Japan | Mooneyes Event

By  | 

 Another installment of  our trip to Japan, we were struck with pure luck that we were able to meet Colin of  www.dohcresearch.com at a rest stop meet(http://royal-origin.com/2013/10/14/japan-rest-stop-parking-lot-meet/). He was kind enough to take us to some of the car shows and drift events that needed a car to get to. Colin planned to take us to a couple of cool places such as the Daikoku rest stop, a Mooneyes show and a Nikko drift event. Our first stop was the Mooneyes All Odds National Event..

 It was our first time dealing with Japan’s on and off rain. Everyone had an umbrella buddy except me…

Mooneyes Japan!!

This show was different than any other show I have ever attended in my life. It was way more laid back and kind of felt like a swap meet with a bunch of cool cars.

157

Cool steering wheels and used Mooneyes merchandise for sale.

156

Some nice classic wheels for sale.

160

I bought everything…

153

I’m going to be honest and say that I don’t really know much about the old school Japanese classic cars. The only cars I really recognized were the Datsuns and the GTRs.  Nonetheless they were all cool to look at.

154

Another Datsun truck, awesome to see these cars pretty low to the ground.

158

Most of the time I was asking Colin “what car is this?” “what car is that?”. I hope he wasn’t annoyed haha.

Beautiful. The cloudy weather made for some awesome photos.

More steering wheel goodness. I really wanted to get the purple one, but wasn’t sure how it would mount on my hub.

Car enthusiasts here just for the cars, no bull shit dance battle, twerk battle, giveaways, or models. Just straight cars.
