日曜日はバロセロナ vs マドリードのサッカー試合があり レストランはどこも満席、 ホテル周辺のバーでは大騒ぎ、 おまけにバロセロナが勝ったもんだから

1949-1954 American cars is the focus of this spotlight. Until now, most spotlights were targeted to specific models or types of vehicles but this spotlight leaves it open to customs, lowriders, gassers and more! There are so many possibilities for ’49-’54 makes and models it will surely be major highlight of the show.
First generation Chevy Camaro, from 1967-1969, is the target of Camaros A-Go-Go. There are many Camaro owners and this is their time to shine from stock original, street machines to full custom builds.

昨年は”Be Calm Not Loud “Shizukani””にご協力有難うございました。2015年も二輪車での会場(パシフィコ横浜)及びみなとみらい地区への来場は出来ません。公共交通機関をご利用下さい。ご協力宜しくお願い致します。2015年は”Save The Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show” ご賛同/ご協力頂ける方に、右のStickerをFreeでお配りしています。
We ask for your support and cooperation again this year. Last year’s Be Calm Not Loud – “Shizukani” campaign worked perfectly and could not have been possible without your support. The area surrounding the event location is still enforcing their policy so we must continue our efforts to keep the noise pollution down. This means no motorcycle parking in the neighboring area unfortunately. Please use public transportation. The new campaign this year is “Save the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show” and we will be handing out free stickers to spread the word.
Thank you for your support and time.

Being used to driving newer cars today, you develop the habit of forgetting to turn off your headlights when you drive an old car.
Now, there’s a special product by MQQN Garage called, “Automatic Light Control” and it’s specifically for old cars, making them more like new ones.
When you go into a tunnel, the headlights will come on automatically. When you turn the key off, the lights will also turn off. Very convenient equipment to have.
It’s still a prototype right now but the final product will be superb.
If you are interested, please be sure to let us know.
