HCS2015 – Show Report – English Edition

The 24th Annual Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show 2015 (HCS2015) was held on Sunday December 6, 2015 at Pacifico Yokohama. The weather was perfect and the entire day was amazing both inside the event hall and outside the perimeter of the area. With your support, we were able to successfully keep the outside noise down. The continued Be Calm Not Loud "Shizukani" campaign from last year and this year's "SAVE THE YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW" efforts could only be possible with your cooperation. Thank you very much. We are truly grateful. At this time, we will be here at Pacifico Yokohama on the first Sunday of December next year. We will, of course, officially announce the date once everything is confirmed. Again, thank you to everyone that came to HCS2015 from far and near.

Here you will find photos and event coverage by MOONEYES. From the setup day before the show with the guests, the event on Sunday starting off with the ride-in, the show automobiles and show motorcycles, the award receivers as well as the Little Get Together Party and after party gathering. We look forward to next year and hope to see you all in Yokohama again.

This year we opened the main door to the event at 8AM, one hour earlier than last year. The official ride-in started at 9AM so this gave everyone a full hour to find a place near the center isle. There were people lined up as soon as they walked through the doors and patiently waited until it started.

(Above images) As fans and spectators made their way inside and gathered around the center isle of Pacifico Yokohama, the official guests prepared for the ride-in just outside the huge doors in the rear concourse of the hall. Some have done it before and others didn't know what to expect. The doors stay closed until each group enters.

At 9:00AM, a voice over the speaker makes the announcement as the huge double-doors next to the main stage slide open. The RIDE-IN STARTS! Starting with Best of Show Motorcycle from the year before, HCS2014 Best of Show Motorcycle: Cherry’s Company 1975 HD Shovelhead makes his way down the center isle. Then HCS2015 Official Guests begin to come in starting with the three guest cars.

HCS2015 Show Guest Car: Tom Foster – 1952 Chevrolet Styleline Deluxe “CRACKER BOX”

Once the three cars were parked, three groups of motorcycles were set to follow.

This year the MOONEYES BOOTH was packed from the early morning. Everything that was limited to event-only items sold out faster than previous years. The debut of our California Metal Flake Steering Wheel Key Chains sold out as well but don't worry, we'll have more of those coming in soon.

(Above) Live bands played throughout the day. The main stage had performances by the Stompin' Riff Raffs at 11AM, Oh! Sharels at 12-noon then Jackie and the Cedrics at 1:30PM. Over in the Rat Island area, The El Caminos performed at 10AM.

"Grow Together – 育てよう – Sodateyou"

今年も皆様のご協力のおかげで、26th Annual YOKOHAMA HOT ROD CUSTOM SHOW 2017 (以下 HCS2017) の開催が決定致しました! このカルチャーが大切な方々が一丸となった結果です。本当にありがとうございます!  会場周辺の問題は変化なく今年も今まで同様 "SHIZUKANI" です。

Last year we reached a new stage and celebrated the 25th Anniversary of the Yokohama Hot Rod Custom Show (HCS). This year the event will be held on Sunday December 3, 2017. With special guests and vehicles from abroad, we hope you will all join us again in attendance.

As for the noise pollution in the vicinity of Pacifico Yokohama and the surrounding area, we will continue our "Shizukani" campaign. For 2017, we believe the campaign has matured and the catch phrase this year will be "Sodateyou" which means to "Grow Together" as we all have together in this culture. To be able to continue this event we cherish, we ask for your cooperation and support.

For 2017, inside the event area, we do hope and plan for exciting good times. As we move towards the event date, we will continue to update our website with the latest information so be sure to check it out!
