Bummer. Are the barges open? Do you use a container for your car? Can you get to as many islands? How expensive is expensive? Gary

Got the "flip front end" working pretty nice on my gasser project....
Now setting up the ladder bars and coil overs in the rear, needs some fab work, and some "beefing up" back there, with that blown olds puttin da suds to da ground back there.....
Don't want anything breakin loose back there fo shure.....

Thanks for posting all those pix, enjoyed lookin through em all....
Here's how my flip front end looks now...

The hood is pinned to the fenders, so I can remove the hood separately, and still flip the fenders with or without the hood in place.
Posted more pix here....

Good to see a new speed shop opening again - instead of closing. When I raced there, there were Kupacha Racing, Ron's Racing & Nakano's shop. Service Center started toward my end days. I didn't see where this new shop is but I take it it's on Oahu? Leeward side? I'd like to check it out when I go back. Aloha!

What Hot Rods? Hey, we missed having the Grand Poobah here for the second official HAMB event on Oahu. See you in June for the third one...you must be counting the days.
We are counting the days... Can't wait to get back to sand, sun, and seeing our friends.

Hell, it's close to a grand to ship one way from the West Coast to Oahu now. Around $980!

Thought I'd throw up these photo's my wife took of our drive home after the Open House. I like the one going by the old HAWAII Theater, Downtown Honolulu.

Damn, those shots are killer. Black and whites of those could be confused with 50 year old pictures. Love it. Old Honolulu usually gets skipped by the tourists, shame. It's really beautiful.

Thanks a lot Colonel, appreciate the compliment! She's a long term rolling project. I got that hood molding from Chevy's Of The 40's. It's a polished aluminum bull nose strip that is bendable and comes with clips. Basically what you've got. My wife's Dodge is a really cherry stocker. Still 6 volt, original, unmolested everything.
