Yes I'm jealous. Makes it hard to cope!
guess that the old timers in Hawaii have not seen this thread - there are some seriously Cool rides over there that need pics shared here -
I dunno...I'd probably go in this direction...but I'm a dirty ol' man...
My parents lived in Kapaa from 2000-2014 and my wife and I went over every winter for years helping them with their place. Many years we only saw the beach twice, landing and taking off at Lihue Airport! But my favorite place on that entire island is so cool I tried to go there every time I could. At Port Allen is Glass Beach, real cool how Mother Nature cleans up our trash. If you’ve been there you know. But farther south is the real gear head vintage gold, or at least Iron Pyrites! These pictures are from around 2010….
Nice Jimmy 6, look out Flat Heads!
Speaking of Flatties, she’s a builder!
And then there’s the King, yup, this beach has a Hemi!
There is so much automotive iron everywhere and the sea is slowly turning it back into nothing. I was told the sugar cane plantation just dumped everything into the ocean back in the day. I even saw a 348-409 and a dual quad Hemi motor getting the treatment. If you haven’t been, go, and definitely bring a camera!
The Petersen came through with a hires and I'm in business!
Sweet that's awesome!
Not sure of DPI but cool Aloha photos.

Henry Lee set the Hawaii speed record at 160 in his Chrysler powered dragster, but tragically went off the end of the strip at Kahuku Air Strip, Oahu, Hawaii, and hit an ironwood tree, November 1958. He died at Hickam AFB hospital. He served as a base firefighter there.
