Mooneyes Open House, Summer ’15

DSC_4466 copyMy favorite thing about attending car shows and meets is when I get to see things I’ve never seen before and hoo boy did I get to see a TON of things I’ve never witnessed in person before at the Mooneyes open house over the weekend!  I don’t go to a lot of hot rod shows in my area mostly because I haven’t gone to the trouble to make myself aware of them.  I’m always excited to capture their bodacious curves or crunchy, rusty door panels with the ol’ Nikon, but Cars & Coffee has been my only real exposure to classic American steel.  This ‘open house’ reminded me why I originally loved cars as a kid, they’re loud, they’re stylish, and every single one was completely different; there’s never a problem finding one of these in the Home Depot parking lot!

Yes, that is the ground you see there just behind the pedals, where the floor generally would be. In a BORING car!

The paint on these cars alone was worth the trip, plenty were sporting intricate lace designs paneled across their roof with what looks like HUNDREDS of hours worth of work!
