European Hot Rod Custom Show 2014

Image I was pleased to find out that I would get a chance to return to Chimay Belgium for the 2nd European Hot Rod & Custom Show. I attended the 1st show two years ago and was looking forward to going back, this time my wife Leslie and I would be representing Mooneyes USA.

After a couple 5 hour flights we arrived in Brussels Thursday morning. We had a little time to take in a few sights as we headed down to Chimay. We arrived there in the early afternoon and immediately headed over to the show grounds to see how things were going. It looked like everything was going great, the tents were all up, and many of the vendors were already set up. The weather was perfect, about 70 degrees and a slight breeze. I was hoping to catch up with Kobus but he was out running errands. We headed over to our Hotel, checked in and got dinner.

photo-605 photo-602 Friday morning we woke up feeling pretty good but noticed it got a little cloudy outside. Leslie checked the weather on her I-phone and it looked bad!” It says it’s going to rain all weekend” Yikes, we didn’t pack for that! We headed over to the show grounds and met up with Shige and the group from Mooneyes Japan. We didn’t have much to set up as we would only be putting out a couple tables this year and selling shirts. The “MOONSTER” was already there and would be displayed in our booth during the show. Vendors were not selling on Friday so we just checked things out and then headed out and planned dinner. We met with Kobus for dinner and got a chance to talk with a lot of his helpers and other guest, they were happy to see that MOONEYES would be at the show again.

photo-600 photo-599 Saturday morning we headed over to the show right after breakfast. The camping section was different then the last show and I was surprised to see how many people were there camping. It was colder than Friday and cloudy but it had not rained yet. We got the booth opened at about nine and had vistors coming in as soon as we opened, The MOONSTER was a hit and the shirts started selling well. At about 11 o’clock the first rain hit and it hit hard. I felt bad for Kobus and his gang, all the work they had done ruined by this rain. I was wrong, I don’t think anybody left. In fact the number of people seemed to still be growing, I guess they have become used to it. We got a chance to walk around and check things out. The cars ranged from aircooled VWs, hot rods, customs, trucks, muscle cars and lots of drag cars. The drag cars were not put away when it started raining, they paraded them around the grounds several times during the day, just were not able to race. Mooneyes was well represented there with the vendors, we had several of our European dealers there including; Jackhammer from the UK, Dr. Low Tuning shop from The Netherlands, Signzz from Germany and Goodies and Family from France. They all seemed busy despite the rain and I was told by a few of them that they did a lot more in sales then the first show.

photo-601 DSC_0078 They do a great job of keeping everyone entertained at this show. Bands play throughout the day in a big tent, they had a Motorcycle circle of death show that packed in the crowds all day. The burnout contest area was busy with cars and bikes doing burnouts and doughnuts all day. Sunday was pretty much the same with a small patch of no rain in the morning allowing some drag racing to take place.

I think this show was a success and hopefully it will continue and grow. We sold out of everything we brought and had a great time visiting with customers and friends that we rarely get to see. Hopefully we will continue to attend this show and it turns into a must attend show for all of Europe.

Thank You,
Bob

Like every year, we think we are ready and should have good running. But often times things don’t go as you planned. We had everything loaded and departed for our 12 hour trip at midnight on Aug 8th. Pretty smooth sailing all the way. Made couple of usual stops and we are on the salt at noon. Staked out the pit and went for tech inspection. Here too, no problem. By 5:00pm, we were out of there.

speedweek1307 speedweek1308

speedweek1310 speedweek1311Since we were done with inspection, we didn’t have much to do on Friday other than change the tires, adjust the valves and get ready for tomorrow. We found out our car was on the event T-shirt. That’s a quite an Honor!

speedweek1312

speedweek1313 speedweek1309
Saturday was the driver’s meeting at 9:00am. This year, we had Kid Rocker and his wife (they came to Bonneville for their Honeymoon), so I had them cruise course. They were excited to see and drive on the race course.

speedweek1314 speedweek1315 speedweek1316

speedweek1317 speedweek1318
Since the record was bumped up to 231.959mph (373.3km/h) last October, I had my work cutout for me. We got in line for a run. At 12:37pm, I made my first run. Course was very slippery and rough. Took it easy and started to get on it around half mile off the start line. Went through all the gears and as soon as I got into top gear, it started to come around me. 188mph at 3 mile marker. You are simply on for the ride.

speedweek1319
When you spin, you have to go back through Tech inspection again to make sure the car is safe to go for more runs. Got that out of the way, but the wind started to kick up, so we called it a day.

speedweek1320 speedweek1321
Sunday, after checking data logger we found out there was a problem with recording and no record. We checked the spark plugs and it looked brand new, so we decided to run it lean it a little. There was hardly anybody running. Bad salt and wind. We went for another run. It was sluggish. No power. Got passed 3 mile marker and all of a sudden, ther was a “big bang” and I knew I popped the burst plate off the blower. Pulled the chute and slowed down. Then patrol came and yelled, “Stop!” He said I was on fire and told me to discharge my fire extinguisher, so I did.

speedweek1323 speedweek1324
Both (Fred had 2 burst plates: one at the blower pop off box and one at the manifold) burst plates popped and the manifold side got a little hot and burned a little paint.

speedweek1322
We changed both burst plates and decided to richen up a little and go run it. It was around 3 or 4 in the afternoon. We went for another run, but as I tried to take off from the push truck, it just wouldn’t go nowhere. Motor wouldn’t rev up and it was making weird noises, so I aborted the run.

speedweek1327Came back to the pit and checked things out and we decided that the coupler that runs the blower broke. That’s something I didn’t have a spare of. This was the end of our Speed Week 2013 challenge.

speedweek1326 speedweek1328
Since it was only Monday, we left the vending trailer behind and headed back to Santa Fe Springs.

We pulled the motor out and apart and found the chain that holds the coupler was binding. That’s what was making noise. Coupler is fine. We’ll put the motor back together and look forward to the World Final at Bonneville in October.

MOONBUG at European Bug-in 5

EBI5 Event Report

Greetings from MOONEYES! This is Steve from MOON SPACE AGENCY.
The European Bug-In 5 (#EBI5) was held on June 28-30, 2013 in Chimay, Belgium.
The fully restored original Inch Pincher III as well as the brand newly built Moonbug were invited “guests” to the event and shipped all the way from Japan. The three of us, Wildman, Kijimoto-san and I, had the pleasure of attending the event and here are some of the photos

from the trip.

ebi5-001 ebi5-002 ebi5-003 Exif_JPEG_PICTURE ebi5-005
We flew into Paris (CDG) Airport and grabbed a car rental. It was raining and very cool outside. It was very early, about 6AM when we got the car. We were about 30km away from “Paris, Paris” like the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe. After figuring out how to “CONFIG” the navigation language to English (No Japanese), we plugged in the Eiffel Tower and then followed the navigation guidance.
After seeing the Eiffel Tower, driving the Arc de Triomphe round-about (rotary) several times for the experience and eating a cafe, we made our way for Chimay, Belgium (about 3 hours drive).

ebi5-006 ebi5-007 ebi5-008 ebi5-009
We stopped for lunch just as we entered Belgium then found our way to Chimay Circuit where we met up with Freddy at the registration booth.

ebi5-010 ebi5-011 ebi5-012 ebi5-013
We then headed for the main tower where Kobus was already very busy with setup and was just about to get the Moonbug and Inch Pincher III from the warehouse. We also ran into Mike. The three of them (Freddy, Kobus and Mike) are the event organizers and did an outstanding job again this year. There were 3,000 campers registered, hundreds of show and race cars plus tons of swap meet vendors and dealers. Although Thursday was a setup day, things were just getting started and most vendors would be showing up tomorrow morning so we decided to look around.

ebi5-014 ebi5-015 ebi5-016 ebi5-017 ebi5-018 ebi5-019
There were so many VW Type-2 (buses) which a lot were used for camping. So cool! The race cars were lined up too.

ebi5-020 ebi5-021 ebi5-022 ebi5-023
We walked up to the drag strip. It’s part of the circuit straight-a-way. There were more race cars parked there too.

ebi5-024 ebi5-025 ebi5-026 ebi5-027
Then we saw the trailers hauling the Moonbug and Inch Pincher III. This would be our tent/booth for the weekend.
Nao-san from Flat4 was not here yet so we setup what we could and decided to check into our hotel and eat dinner.

ebi5-028 ebi5-029 ebi5-030 ebi5-031 ebi5-032 ebi5-033
We walked around the small town of Chimay. Just love European architecture. Just on the perimeter of the town center is the only Chinese restaurant (that we found) and decided to eat here. Of course, not without some Chimay beer! This blue label beer is 9%.

ebi5-034 ebi5-035 ebi5-036 ebi5-037 ebi5-038 ebi5-039
In the morning, Obata-san arrived. He owns and drives a crazy-fast turbo-charged Moonbug IV. We was on-hand to make sure the Moonbug’s maiden run on the strip would be a success – well, the engine at least. The driving would be up to Kijimoto-san.
Nao-san from Flat4 showed up in the morning too. He brought racing gas so we filled up both cars. After than Obata-san and Kijimoto-san went through the basics of operation getting familiar with the Moonbug, then started it up for the first time. (view it here)

inchpincher
The restored original Inch Pincher III owned and brought over from Flat4 (Tokyo, Japan).
Nao-san would be driving this machine! During the restoration process, Wildman assisted by pinstriping and lettering the entire car!
In the rear intake vent, the original signature of the original pinstriper still remains as a salute.

By midday, it was still very cloudy but many cars were coming in.

The official OPEN TIME for today (7/28) was 2PM. Next to our tent was the official EBI tent and a line formed around ours as people waited to get their event goods! They closed after two-three hours. After that, our tent really got busy with lookers. Wildman had some work too. Pierre Otto from Otto Bros. let us borrow a battery charger so Wildman lettered his helmet as a thank you. He was very happy. Pierre drives a VW dragster and lights the tires on fire for fun!

earlier than expected possibly because of the weather but we went back to our hotel, then ate dinner at a place in town called CASINO. It’s a restaurant witha casino theme where under the glass tables are chips and cards. The menu was only in French! We had spaghetti.
Oh yes, and that blue label Chimay Beer. It’s so smooth! Highly recommended!

The rain came overnight and slightly in the morning. If it stayed like this, there could be no races at all.
The line outside was for the EBI booth but there were a lot of visitors on Saturday (7/29). Everyone wanted Wildman’s autograph! We had a special visit from two VW legends, Lonnie Reed & Dyno Don Chamberlin. Although Lonnie Reed has be in a different line of business, this event has given him the bug again and plans to build “something” soon. Looking forward to that!

ebi5-096 ebi5-098 ebi5-099 ebi5-100 ebi5-101
CoolFlo from the UK built this buggy as well as the Bay Window camper.
To reduce the amount of mud, event staff brought in hay. It make a huge difference.

ebi5-107 ebi5-108 ebi5-109 ebi5-110 ebi5-111 ebi5-112
Wildman was busy all day but it was time for lunch! So we headed over to the VIP tent and met up with the others. As we passed the drag strip, they were about to heat it up to speed up the drying. Look! Wildman getting a taste of Chimay Beer!

Suddenly, I heard a noise and thought it was the heating machine but no, it was a helicopter!

ebi5-113 ebi5-114 ebi5-115 ebi5-116 ebi5-119 ebi5-123 ebi5-124 ebi5-126 ebi5-127 ebi5-128 ebi5-129 ebi5-131
I was told the helicopter would only be around for a few hours so I needed to go soon. Rather than wait until after I ate, I decided to go before. After all, I didn’t want to lose my lunch while in the air… it was my first time riding a helicopter and lucky for me, it was the pilot’s first day on the job too. We went up to about 900 feet. I asked him to go higher and we sure did! I could see the entire event area. It was awesome! We passed over the VIP tent. I could see Mooneyes yellow! LQQK! You can see them waving!

ebi5-132 ebi5-133 ebi5-134 ebi5-135 ebi5-136 ebi5-137 ebi5-138 ebi5-139 ebi5-140 ebi5-141 ebi5-142
After the helicopter ride, we headed back to the VIP tent to have a late lunch. Lunch was a served which featured sausage, ham, potatoes and veggies. It was very good. I could eat this every day. Oh, at topped with a glass of Chimay beer of course. Chimay Bleu please. The day was actually getting better even though it was technically about 4PM! After we ate, we stopped back over at the tent where Wildman continued where he left off pinstriping and signing autographs. Kobus popped in too. He explained that it was possible to run today as the track was finally dry but being the end of the day, it was probably best to wait until the morning. So we relaxed a bit. We could hear the helicopter overhead so Kijimoto-san decided since we weren’t going to race, he’d jump on for a ride. Wouldn’t you know it, as soon as he left, Nao-san came rushing into our tent.

ebi5-143 ebi5-144 ebi5-145 ebi5-146
“Let’s Go!” Nao-san said. “We need to push the cars out now.” He continued.
Turned out that the race was on! They were going to make a few passes. Only one lane was open and for just a 200m length.
We pushed the cars out of the tent while Wildman went to get Kijimoto-san.

The MOONBUG 1st pass ever! 200m pass June 28, 2013 in Chimay, Belgium.

Dyno Don doing his, “BA-BA-BA-BA, BA-BAAAA!” (in high C) The crowd loved it. At one point, he turned towards the camera and did his famous bowing gesture while saying, “MOONEYES!” Such an awesome person and worked non-stop.

Chimay Circuit is a race track so there is no return road.
All the cars make a pass, then wait at the opposite end until the session is over and return as a group. Using only one lane, took a little longer but the crowd and drivers were thrilled just to race.

ebi5-210 ebi5-211 ebi5-212
After Kijimoto-san returned, Obata-san checked things out, did some fine tuning and got the Moonbug back in the lineup for another pass. Assuming it would take another 30 mintues, I went ot check out the cars in the show area.

ebi5-213 ebi5-214 ebi5-215 ebi5-216 ebi5-217 ebi5-218 ebi5-219 ebi5-220 ebi5-221 ebi5-222 ebi5-223 ebi5-224 ebi5-225 ebi5-226 ebi5-227 ebi5-228 ebi5-229 ebi5-230 ebi5-231 ebi5-232 ebi5-233 ebi5-234 ebi5-235 ebi5-236 ebi5-237 ebi5-238 ebi5-239 ebi5-240 ebi5-241 ebi5-242 ebi5-243 ebi5-244 ebi5-245 ebi5-246

ebi5-247
Once I made my way back up to the drag strip, Kijimoto-san had made a third pass. We waited until all the cars were done on last time and parked the Moonbug next to the Lightning Bug tent.

Photo Jun 29, 8 40 24 PM
What a great way to end the day! The Moonbug made three passes, got some time clocked. The motor sounds and runs strong. The car drives straight as an arrow. I think it has a lot of potential.

ebi5-248
The next morning, the skies were still very cloudy.

ebi5-249 ebi5-250 ebi5-251 ebi5-252 ebi5-253 ebi5-254 ebi5-255 ebi5-256 ebi5-257 ebi5-258 ebi5-259 ebi5-260 ebi5-261 ebi5-262 ebi5-263 ebi5-264
We walked the entire grounds looking for a Mooneyes Pick. One that we really liked was this Type-1 with Speed Master Wheels. Very nice. The owner commissioned Wildman to paint the panel that covers the wires behind the dash.

On my way back to the Mooneyes tent, I couldn’t help but stop for a visit of the off-road section. I could “play” here all day!

I gave them a Mooneyes sticker and they immediately put it on. Then proceeded to show me a lil’action! Thank you!

When I got back to the tent, they were preparing to race so I headed to the drag strip. Obata-san was going to run! I think he made a great pass but there was one problem. We didn’t know they opened the lane up to 400m!

ebi5-277 ebi5-278 ebi5-279 ebi5-280 ebi5-281 ebi5-282 ebi5-283 ebi5-284 ebi5-285 ebi5-286 ebi5-287 ebi5-288ebi5-290 ebi5-291 ebi5-292 ebi5-293 ebi5-294 ebi5-295 ebi5-296 ebi5-297 ebi5-298 ebi5-299 ebi5-300 ebi5-301
While the drag races continued, Wildman was busy working. I watched the races for a bit then made my way around the show cars again.

It gets dark at about 11PM. We left around 10PM as we had to leave early in the morning the following day. Below are some photos from our drive back to Paris.

The town of Chimay is quiet in the morning. The mist/fog sets the mood for a classic European drive although it cleared up. At one point, the speed limit was 130km/h. We made it back to Paris in no time.

I hope you enjoyed viewing the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you very much for view my report.
European Bug-In is held every other year in Chimay, Belgium. It is an experience worth doing! Next year at this location will be the European Hot Rod Show! If you get a chance, make your way to Chimay, Belgium!

Mahalo!

In Pomona, CA

The MQQN Exhibit at the NHRA Museum is still continuing. If you haven’t had the chance to see the original MQQNEYES Dragster & MOON Beam as well as the other cars and memorabilia on display, this could be your last chance. At this point in time, I have no idea how much longer the exhibition will be showing.

The NHRA World Finals will be held in Pomona from November 7-10. There is a slight chance you will be able to see the MQQNEYES Funny Car in action!

Mooneyes Sweden Bike Show

Moon Bike Show #3

The show took place on March 2, 2013 at the same place as last year, the amazing old building from the early 1800′s that used to be an old steel mill. But once again we rolled in another kind of massaged steel; choppers, bobbers, custom bikes and even a few vintage races. So enjoy these great pictures taken by Wictor Bergqvist of

Grand National Roadster Show 2013

Greetings from MOONEYES!

The MOONEYES Booth was inside Building #4 during the 64th Annual Grand National Roadster Show at the Fairplex in Pomona, California from January 25-27, 2013. Thank you to everyone that stopped by our booth during the weekend. We had MOONEYES Staff Steve with us to snap up some photos from the event. He covered the entire weekend and managed to get a few shots in. Below are a selected few of the photos he put together in a gallery from each building. Please enjoy!As you can see in the photos (below) taken at MOONEYES in Santa Fe Springs, it actually does rain in Southern California.

Getting right into the Grand National Roadster Show (GNRS) event coverage, we begin with Building #3 “A Day At The Drags – Gassers”

The main hall, Building #4. Here’s a look at the dozen AMBR cars competing for America’s Most Beautiful Roadster (AMBR).

Continuing in Building #4 with more show cars on display as well as pinstripers and vendors.

Building #5 featured different types of styles but there were more lowriders here. There were a few hot rods and customs as well.

Building #6.

Building 6 is where the show motorcycles are on display. HCS2012 (MOONEYES show in Yokohama, Japan) guests Mike Davis had his Triumph at the show as well as HCS2012 guest Todd Asin with his Triumph. The Factory Metal Works built Moon Machine Triumph was also part of the motorcycle show. John Edwards, a guest at HCS a few years ago, was there with his sweet Panhead. There were cars and bicycles on display in the other half of this building including a few more lowriders.

Building #7 was full of customs and kustoms. From bare metal restoration projects to fully modified custom creations, this building was amazing.

Building #8 is where the street rods (mainly) were. There were, of course, customs and hot rods as well in this building.

Building #9 is similar to the HCS Spotlight where they focus on a theme or category type. Last year it was the 80th Anniversary of the 1932 Ford. This year, the theme was Woodies and Wagons and with that theme comes Aloha and Surf.

Building #10. Suede Palace. This is where a variety of customs and vintage hot rods are showcased. Outside of Suede Palace also featured more cars and a lot of car clubs. HCS2012 guest Rez Rivera’s Ford Roadster was parked outside looking great with that stance.

Thank you for viewing our gallery from GNRS2013. Hope you enjoyed the photos and the page held up.

We have several shows that we’ll be attending this year. If you happen to see the Mooneyes booth, please be sure to drop in and say hello! Hope to see you at the show!
