Default Hot Rodding in Hawaii... Hao Wela!!

Last week was the 50th anniversary of Hawaii's statehood. If you've never been over to see our hot rod brothers to the far west, you owe a trip over. If you love WW II history, Pearl Harbor is a must. If you dig surfing, snorkeling or general relax...

How rad is that? I spent a week on Kaui over the 07/08 New Years and a further four days on Oahu. I Only saw 3 special interest vehicles the whole time haha. A '53 Chevy that was in the process of being shaved, and in the same driveway a '29 roadster and then later on a '62 Impala lowrider.

Cool to know they had their own developed hot rod scene as well!

Good read! What magazine was that from? I'm guessing it was 1951 or 2?

Speaking of Maui-- I've seen this '28 Phaeton there for years-- Looks like an old street rod with IFS and a PS rack, but it looks like good bones. How sweet would it be to bomb around the islands in this???

Speaking of Phaetons, I saw this old Taxi cab around Lahaina a few years ago:
(notice the extra panel between the front and rear doors)

A friend of mine lives/races there. Must be tough. Very few rain-outs though, so you gotta keep your mill together...

Sorry for the OT comment, but wow, that guy also has a giant Doggie Diner head. It's a fast food place on the Great Highway in San Francisco that just closed again. Those are pretty rare.
