I went ahead and restored the links to my pics on the first page of this thread. They're awfully small. I'll see if I can take some clearer, larger photos of those items.

Thanks Matterhorn, Icebaer, and Bigbro for the additional eye-candy!

Its just a bit later, the little mercury meteor cruising the strip in the second picture, (right under the sign and maoi) is a 62-63. Love those things.
I sold my 50 merc, kept my 50's soul, but I bought a 64 Galaxie, I figured that it fit more into my version of a perfect tiki life. Inject me and my car into that picture and cut the cord baby!!!!!




Hi

It's a '63 Comet not Meteor... I have one...

Is the the Hedley carving still in Sunset Park to see? In Vegas in April...

I think it's found a permanent home there, so you should be all set for your visit.

Maybe I should change my name to Rev Aku Aku !!!





Looking at this now, some 2 years later, I wonder if this had any influence on the recently released Tiki Farm Bamboo Ben Mug....It DOES bear a slight resemblence.

Mahalo, Sabu.

I am saddened I missed the golden Tiki age of Vegas - although I did make it to Venus. Mahalo to Tiki Diablo for keeping it alive.

icebaer69,

Great find on those photos. What an amazing tiki stationed outside the front door. What the heck are those figures stalking the tables on the inside of the restaurant??

I was curious about the figures also so I messed around with the image to try and get a better look.
