Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show 2018

This past weekend we had the pleasure of attending and vending at the Mooneyes Custom Hot Rod Show in Yokohama Japan. There aren’t many events like the world renowned annual “Yokohama” show. People from all across the world make the trek to check out the colorful Japanese low riders, crazy customs, and invited guests from all over the globe. There really is no other event like it. Thanks to everyone who stopped by the Deadend Magazine booth.

Deadend Magazine Weekend Report - Mooneyes Hot Rod Custom Show

This past weekend we made our way back to Yokohama Japan for the Mooneyes' Hot Rod Custom Show. You've probably heard from many people that this is THE show to go to. You heard right. This show is hard to put into words. If you've never gone you need to do yourself a favor and get yourself to Yokohama the first weekend of December one year. Arigato to everyone who stopped by the booth!

Congrats to our good friend Coby for having his Econoline 'Van Go' as a special guest.

For the first time Deadend Magazine was given the opportunity to choose a car to give an award to. We picked Cholo's Custom's killer 1954 Chevy ' Sphinx' you can see why. Although Sphinx is clean enough to be a show car. Cholo drove this Chevy 4 hours (each way) to the show! Respect.

Throwback - Nagoya Japan trip 2011

Back in 2011 we went to Japan for the first time. Our destination was the Mooneyes Hot Rod & Custom Show in Yokohama Japan, but our journey to get there (a few days in Nagoya) was just as amazing.  Toshi (then Local hero, now Deadend Magazine) picked us up from the airport and the tour of shops began...

Our first stop was at Art's Body.
