For those who found the first part of our Yokohama HotRod Custom Show coverage to be slightly too blingy, we think you might like what we have in Part 2.

You can’t have a Mooneyes show without some proper American Muscle cars so there were plenty to see here. Like this stunning Dodge Super Bee.

Another car with cool illustrations attached to their name, the Plymouth Road Runner.

When you have a Road Runner graphic tearing down the side of your car, you just know it’s gonna be fast.

In another life, i’d be rocking one of these in my garage. Or maybe a Road Runner… Or maybe a Super Bee… Let’s make it a Road Runner. Imagine firing one of them up in the morning. Don’t think my neighbors will like me much.

Grumpy sure had a sweet toy collection.

This year’s show also had a spotlight on the Chevy Camaro, aptly named, Camaro A-go-go. With special emphasis on the first generation cars from 1967-1969.

Interestingly, there were more ladies into cars here than at the Tokyo Auto Salon.

From modern builds with big wheel arch filling rims…

…to cars that just looked like they drove straight to the show floor with nary a care in the World. All with big attitude.

Looked like the real deal.

Another Chevy but this time, a Corvette. Looked like it might be fast.

Penned in Italy by an American and powered by Detroit. This Detomaso also has one of the most Rock & Roll names in automotive history, the Pantera. Start her up and listen to the song of my people!

Let me end with this immaculately rebuilt Corvette Stingray. Car design back in that era was really at (or close to) its peak. Beautiful.
