As a teenager growing up in the 40's Dean Moon catered to the Southern California hotrodding scene with his custom speed equipment, built in his parents garage. Today MOONEYES is the leader in nostalgic hotrod performance equipment still operating out of the original shop in Norwalk, LA County which is where we headed today in the HARVEYS van for the annual MOONEYES summer BBQ. Hundreds of hotrods and customs turned up to celebrate an icon of Southern California hotrodding.
I spent most of my time at the gift shop and garage, where they have on display the coolest collection of Ratfink stuff and nostalgic hotrodding memorabilia.
If you're in Yokohama, Japan stop by the MOONEYES, Japan store.
