Whether you were just curious or already well into the rat-rod scene, the Mooneyes Show & Drag had it going on this past December. The event has exploded in recent years and is now a full-on show. Taking place on the east end of Irwindale Speedway's parking lot, the event was completely packed with pre-'65 vehicles. There were plenty of entertaining highlights, including drag races, live bands, and a kickass pin-up girl contest. Also on hand were 85 vendors selling vintage-style clothing, novelty items, and classic car parts. It was a great day for hanging out, and even if you were new to the scene this event was a good opportunity to get a real feel for what it's all about.
