Saturday, December 8, 2012 was the annual Mooneyes Christmas Party, Car show and Drag Races at Irwindale Dragstrip. I am not really sure how long they have been having this event; but I have been photographing it since 2010. It is a fun event. The car show is limited to pre-1965 model years; and the drag races are limited to pre-1969 model years. In addition, there was a Pinup Girl contest, tons of vendors selling everything you could want to customize your hot rod or fuzzy dice for your lowrider as well as food and drink. Live music was provided by Gamblers Mark, Dead Beat Daddy, Hot Rod Trio and Dynotones.
The weather was great and the crowd all seemed to be enjoying themselves immensely; I know I did and I look forward to next year’s event.
