MOON SPACE AGENCY Osanai’s USA Trip Report

at Irwindale Speedway, Irwindale, CA


In the early morning hours before the sun was even thinking about rising, a line of cars had already gathered outside of the complex. Each year for at least a decade now, it’s been a year-end tradition. The excitement of this event is like no other event in Southern California. Cars gather. People gather. This event has become a reunion and end-of-the-year get together with friends old and new, far and near. This is true Southern California. This is true car culture. It’s a roots event setup by non other than a little old company that loves good ol’ traditional ways. Irwindale Speedway has been the spot ever since this little get together grew too big for the parking lot at MOONEYES USA in Santa Fe Springs, CA. We only hope that Irwindale Speedway sticks around for another decade so that we can carry on this tradition each year. Thank you to everyone for being a part of our event. We truly appreciate your continued support over the years and look forward to many more.


Mooneyes International Magazine (MIM16)

We recently added MIM16 to our online store. MIM16 is Mooneyes Japan’s part magazine and part catalog. They release two issues each year; one being a full product catalog of Mooneyes offerings and the other, although also included a mini catalog, is focused on their Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show. The latest issue, MIM16, takes on a revised name of Mooneyes International Magazine as the magazine has gone through a publisher change as well an overall image and focus change.

To commemorate this change, this issue comes with a special 13-month calendar featuring vintage photographs taken by the Dean Moon. With the back cover of the calendar, there are actually 14 images. All black and white photos, this wall calendar will surely add to any garage or office. Open and hanging, it measures approximately 11 3/4″ wide and 14 1/2″ long (vertically). Enjoy a nostalgic photograph from Dean Moon with each calendar month. This calendar is not sold separately and is only available with this issue of MIM.

Switzerland Art & Wheels

I attended an event called Art and Wheels located in the town of Basel in Switzerland.
It was the first time this event was held.
The bikes on display were all invited by the event promoters and exhibited together with the art. The event had a very “at Home” feeling to it.

Other than this car, there were many cars being worked on in their garage.

After a shop tour, we went for a cruise in David’s car to another hot rod shop.

This crate is from the French Army and was said to have a complete flathead motor inside.
The hook on the top is used for parachute latches and such.

Going through the countryside, up a mountain road, we came to “Andy’s Tiki Bar” restaurant.
A Swiss Tiki for some reason has a nice ring to it.

It started to get dark at around 9PM.

A streetcar that ran passed the hotel I stayed at.

When I returned home to (Honmoku) Yokohama, Japan I stopped at MQQN Cafe.
An ice cold beer does in fact taste great!!
