Sure do!

Best Tiki Themed was that crazy Van, just awesome. A Luau on wheels!

Best engine is that black 3 window coupe in your photos above (with the Clay Smith cigar smoking woodpecker/thrush decal on the rocker panel).

Best Interior was a black Plymouth with a sparkle blue roof. had a white interior and blue piping on the seats.

Best car to take to the drive-in is that big satin yellow merc in your photos above (the one with bondo on the grille area). I am confused why this car won such an honor since it had a ratty, cramped interior and NO BACK SEAT!! LOL Ah well!

Best Traditional Hot Rod was that wonderful purple coupe with white stripes and lime green accents.

Last but certainly not least, after further review votes have been recalculated and Best of Show now goes unanimously to Bonnie Delight!!!! Wowwee!!! hahahahahahahaha

Alas, no Corndogs. There would be too many folks who would say they "Weren't Tiki enough." Even the Bananas Foster Corndog. It's also kinda hard to check "Pallookaville One" as carry on baggage.

This would have won "Best in Show."

I get hungry just looking at Palookaville. Maybe we can construct a tiki themed corndog wagon for for the next Tiki-Invasion... call them Tohunga Dogs or something?!

Someone should come up with a tiki mold/waffle iron type device for Laffo to make tiki shaped corndogs for Palookaville @ Mission Tiki...
Jet Powers we need a top secret covert operation to airlift Palookaville I to California for the next Tiki Invasion....

LOL! We should make that happen. How can we **BEGIN** to have an event without a good corndog?!?!?! Maybe Moai shaped corndogs? Perhaps a corndog with a hula skirt and a tiny drink umbrella stuck in it? Maybe a rum based batter mixed with fresh coconut/pineapple/mango puree'?

Speaking of coconut and pineapple, next year I think we should have tropical flavored jello shoooters, a stealth mode to get our drink on and not worry about open containers.

Right now I'm still so exhausted that those two simple words "next year" don't even register in my brain, LOL

Coming up FAST we've got these other GREAT drive-in events happening:
Rock n' Roll Monster Bash at the Starlight in Atlanta June 1st
Drive-Invasion '08 at the Starlight on August 30 & 31
MONSTERAMA on Sunday October 26th at Mission Tiki

Vid...you got a great place there, I Love it !

Any chances of you building a big ole Tiki restaurant on the premises, like the Kahiki or Mai Kai ? Ha, I know,, wishful thinking...it's just that you have so much space, and the Tiki-ness is already in place....

That'd be neat !

We have toyed with the idea to make the Sailwell Tire building into a tiki themed restaurant and bar, that building is on the MTDI property but to the right of the box office 'huts' as you pull into the driveway (corner of State and Ramona). It's an old tire store but it already has the weathered tin roof and funky design that would make for an easy Tiki restuarnat transformation. When his lease is up we'll have to make a decision about that!

Meanwhile enjoy the top quality food and snacks from our snack bar!

California can't handle my Corndogs. I'd have to have a Defibrillator on the side of the Wagon. I think there's only a two block radius around Pink's that would get the Pallookaville. Next year I'm just gunna give myself Rum Enemas in the RV. How's that for an open container? Bet they wouldn't ask me to pour THAT out.
