I sold a 51 Willys wagon on Oahu in 2004, dunno what ever happened to it though. On Oahu there used to be a car cruise in Kapolei at the Kapolei shopping center off of the Ferrington Highway.

I don't remember if it was a weekly thing or not but there was some interesting stuff that'd show up. I don't know if it is even around anymore.

We have street rod friends who live in Hawaii and every other year ship their rod to the mainland for several months of driving and attending events. They were with us over the weekend, just left yesterday on their way to the Frog Follies. We will see them again at NSRA Kalamazoo and Good Guys Joliet before they head west to Super Run, Las Vegas and NSRA Sacramento before putting the rod back on the boat in Oakland.

This is their third trip with rod to the mainland. They won the long distance at Louisville in 2005 with their '32 Ford sedan and this year with a '39 Chev sedan.

Ron wrote an article covering the 2005 trip. If you'd like to read about an ambitious street rod adventure, check here:

Carol & I were just on the Big Island (Kona ) & saw a bunch of old cars , 7-8 Model A's mostly stock , custom chopped Merc, 46 Woodie Street Rod, 37 Ford truck & a couple of mid 30's Chevy Hot rod sedans, & we were not even looking. Big scene over there & a drag strip in Hilo !! I have done a deal with a plantation owner in Kona (Originally from Van Nuys & went to the cruises as a kid ) to bring over 100% Kona Coffee labelled "Limey Steve's Hot Rod Coffee " , look for Norwell art & some killer coffee coming soon . Hawaii rules

Aloha

I've gotta wonder if it's still on the island?
For that matter, it doesn't seem too far fetched to think that any old Rod from the Island is still
on the island somewhere as shipping it off the island may not have been worth the extra $$$ on top of a purchase price back in the day.

we went to Cruise Paradise in 03, with a 40 coupe, it was on the big island--the people were great and had some very nice cars. Herb Leite was the organizer on the island I believe and the local guys (Patrick, Herb's brother and all the club guys) who were hot rod guys did a great job on the cruises, etc. I also worked over there on several islands and as some very nice cars, also there was a show out toward Barber's Point by the Wendy's and the new WalMart and a drag strip there as well. Saw an outstanding 32 black higboy at the Sheraton in Kona as well--was there during the day every day I was working there (approx. 2 weeks)

We spent 8 days in Hawaii this year over the 4th of july. Here's the link to alot of cool pics from our trip to the Big Island for Cruise Paradise 2009 and a few shots of Oahu's North Shore. Love it over there, we've been a few times now and plan on going back next summer. There's ALOT of old iron in Hawaii. One guy told us "It's always been here, it's just hidden real well".

Paul! You're with your new wife on the most BEAUTIFUL spot on the planet and you're on the 'net?!?!?!

BTW, get used to the chickens!!! That, and if you do a luau, make sure it's Smith's Tropical Paradise, and do the boat ride to Fern Grotto! For breakfast, I recommend Kountry Kitchen in Kapa'a. Try the Hawaiin French Toast!

Here's some recomendations...
For breakfast, Kountry Kitchen in Kapa'a
For Luau, Smith's Tropical Paradise and Fert Grotto Boat Tours.
Speaking of boats, rent a kayak and paddle up the Wailua River, Hawaii's only navigatable river.
Take the Movie Tour, and spring for the total off road package. You get to tour CocoPalms where Elvis filmed. It's sad to see now, but still cool.
If you want to take a boat tour, use Blue Dolphin, the 5 hour NaPali Cruise is great, pony up a few bucks extra and scuba dive.
Snorkeling, go to Lydgate (if it's open). Calm, protected, warm waters.
Need any more, let me know!
