We always dig the Mooneyes Open House, because it is a SoCal staple and unlike most any other automotive event you are going to find. It’s different because Mooneyes is a MUCH smaller place than you might imagine, and that means that when you are there it feels a bit like you are at a party at someone’s personal shop, rather than a big parts manufacturer. With a band playing out back, parking for just a few cars, but everything pretty much open to explore, you are guaranteed to have some fun while you are there.
The only issue is parking, because WAY more people show up than there are parking spots, so the streets surrounding Mooneyes become packed with cars, trucks, and more. Dean Moon opened this location 60 years ago, and it is pure nostalgia.
It’s cool to visit, and we appreciate Wes Allison heading out there to shoot photos for us.We’ve got two galleries to share, and as always you can click on any photo to make it bigger and to scroll through the slide show.
