MOONEYES OPEN HOUSE

ROGER ROHRDAN October 31, 2022 All Feature Vehicles

The Faithful Gather at Santa Fe Springs, CA

The current and the original location for Mooneyes is Santa Fe Springs, CA.

Since 1950 the famed Mooneyes logo has adorned more cars than any other in history and those two peeping eyes are still iconic.

Every year Mooneyes has an open house and vintage rods, customs, race cars, and motorcycles come from all over, as customers of this legendary auto parts and service supplier get together to celebrate the brand and the culture.

A live soundtrack was supplied the Hot Rod Trio and DJ Dan Moses while the coolest cars and bikes rolled by all day, and Chico’s world famous hamburgers kept everyone fed! Hundreds of cars were bumper to bumper along both sides of Norwalk Blvd. The Mooneyes’ and the Café parking lots, as well as the shop across the street were packed with hundreds of vehicles that are not seen at the usual shows.

The famed Mooneyes logo looks down at two unique Ford roadsters. Customs or race cars, those two peeping eyes are iconic.
