When I was in High School In the early 60's in Sonoma Ca. A local rodder (Jim Noblet) owned the Moon Shiner. This car was the spark that got me into cars. When I saw the restored Moon Shiner at the GNRS, I couldn't take enough pics. of it. It brought back some great memories.

After seeing this at the GNRS I must say that although it looks nice in photos , it's even better in person. The details and finish are exceptional.

A great finish for a cool old Hot Rod truck! All involved should be proud of the achievement.

Ten yrs ago Mickey was at P-town & found his first car/truck.Built it when he was 14.Art painted it.Brandon & Aaron at East Bay Speed & Custom in Concord Calif.is going to restore it back to when Mickey built it.Art's going to do the paint work the 2nd time as well.As anybody that knows Mickey knows he'll be helping as well.I'll try to add as much as I can as they go.

When I was in High School In the early 60's in Sonoma Ca. A local rodder (Jim Noblet) owned the Moon Shiner. This car was the spark that got me into cars. When I saw the restored Moon Shiner at the GNRS, I couldn't take enough pics. of it. It brought back some great memories.
