    Cheers fellas there were heaps of other non HAMB cars and bikes which were outstanding. Here's a couple I some how missed.

    Sorry guys keep adding more as I see them posted by other guys who were there. Clearly didn't take pics of all the cool cars.
     
  7. The Japanese Rod and Custom scene has always been a cut above.
     
  8. Thank you for posting the photos. The plan is next year to fly over as it's a bucket list show to attend.

    A lot of these are built here, one custom has been 8 years in the making. Im only posting the HAMB friendly cars here so cant show the majority of cars and the awesome bikes. There were incredible low riders, VWs, older and newer Japanese cars amongst many many others. Then there were the bikes which are mainly HDs which are next level.

    I hear many of the international guests say its the best show there is, now I cant confirm that as I havent been to AMBR etc etc but it sure would be hard to beat for such a diversity of super cool cars and bikes.

    These guys from Side Motors drive their cars HARD and race them fairly regularly around flat ovals and off road dirt tracks. This one got pushed a bit far in one of the races. The guy in the pic is the driver/owner of the tudor and both are OK now. Here`s a couple links to one recent event I attended.

  13. The white pickup conversion is pretty stellar, for once I might be afraid to drive it.

    Yes, it’s good to point out that not all of these cars are actually built in Japan. Japan does have some superior builders, but Mooneyes does encourage US, Australian, and other builders to bring cars in for the show
