土曜日、Again！この日も朝から一気に、と行きたいところでしたが、この日はVenturaで”Back to the Beach”というCar Showが開催され、一度も行った事が無かったので午前中だけ行ってきました。Shopから2時間位、Ventura Hightway 101を北上したVentura County FairｇrandでそのShowは開催されています。101をそのまま北上するとあの有名なPaso Roblesにも行けます。今年のPasoは5月27日、日本ではMotorcycle “Show & Swap Meet”（MSS）の開催日ですね。どっちに行きますか？勿論MSSですね！
夜、友人に誘われてSeal BeachでDinnerを取り、PCH（Pacific Coast HWY）で帰宅途中、30年近く写真を撮ろう、撮ろうと思いつつ、クルマを止めるのが面倒で何度もその前をパスしたポリネシア風レストランを今回は意を決して遂に撮影したのです。無くなる前に撮れて良かったです。
Last weekend was MOONEYES USA (MUI) warehouse moving. The new warehouse is beside the shop and very convenient but smaller so made 2nd floor. From Thursday Dean MOON Jr. has helped to move things from old warehouse and wished to make all move within Friday but it had to rain. It was cold too so clean up the new warehouse was all we could do
California is also having strange weather with mix of warm and cold days , Looks like weather is unstable world wide. The cold rain has dried up in late afternoon and rainbow has appeared in east sky so this was end for the day.
On Saturday I hoped to finish on from morning but there was an event called “Back to the Beach” at Ventura and I had to go there in morning as I have never been to it.
Two hours on Ventura highway 101 from shop at Ventura County Fairground was where the show was hosted. 101 north leads to famous Paso Robles. This year’s Paso is on May 27th, in Japan we host Motorcycle “Show and Swap Meet (MSS)”. Which one would you go? Of course MSS, right!
This event is Hot Rods/Kustoms and Kustom Kulture event but many bikes were there too. Swap Meet had mainly bike parts.
Southern California event with this type of event has always bikes in the show. You can always see the bikes. I wish to look around more but had to return to moving so I left the show on 10am went back to the shop. The weather was good so made things move as much as possible.
There were many thing that cannot be lost so I had to move them by myself which was the major reason of this trip. The Dragster frame and Woody are in warehouse too.
At night, friends asked me for dinner in Seal Beach and cruised on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway) made stop to take picture of Polynesian restaurant which I wanted to take picture for more than 30 years but didn’t stop the car to take picture. I was so please to be able to take picture before it was gone.
Next time and so many things I couldn’t take picture as things will not be there, you never know so there are No tomorrow for taking pictures. No chance other than when you thought of taking pictures. It was rare good decision. Huntington Beach has chanted most in PCH.
Sunday, this day was the returning day to Japan but Pomona was on, Long Beach had Bike Swap Meet and wanted to stop by Long Beach before taking flight but as MUI had shop in Pomona I went to Pomona. I went around the area for cars only but from old time the 50s and 60s, Muscle Car and 70s and 80s car were seen too.
Car is not paid too much attention when they are still running on street but Once they are gone, next time to see is usually after the price has gone up. “This car was all over the street” or “Why this car?” but as soon as they are gone and some how it starts up the move and price get rocket high. There were many Japanese car in Pomona too.
How about the Toyota 2000GT which is too high priced in Japan. In USA, Chryslers are all getting high. Camaro and Mustangs were high too. Car will not be junked if the price is kept high and if price fall like in Japan and the care will be less as equal as the price and worries me how it will end. That what I thought of Pomona this time.
On the way from Pomona to LAX on FWY 605, there was Japanese VIP style Lexus driving in far front. I doubt it match with freeway but as Japanese cars are as getting popular, if some one refer to that style as a text it can not be helped. People who like Japanese car in USA may seem cool. That’s how 5 day 3 nights in California has end and next week is Shanghai Auto Show 2007.
