Cars are what I do for a living so I always have different stuff. Currently our old cars in the garage: My wife has a 1971 Karmann Ghia that is a 50,000 mile car all stock. It is a exact car of her first car I bought her several years ago as an anniversary present. I have a 69 Olds Vista Cruiser wagon. 70,000 miles. In process of gathering everything (trim etc) pieces I want before taking it apart for a repaint and new wood. Paint is just old and a few minor dents etc. All stock except tinted windows and Rader Tri Rib wheels to give a good 60s look. Dual exhaust also. I want it to look like a pit wagon at the drags in the late 60s like I remember. I will add a few speed parts from the era. When I build a car I usally don't put anything on it newer than 3 years past the age of the car. I also have a model A and a 24 chevy. that are in the works. The chevy will be built as a old Indy race car style car. The model A will be a Jalopy style running the stock 4 cylinder with speed parts. My cars are built on a budget. I have built several magazine and show winning cars. I am just not into that anymore. I like my stuff to look nice but I drive them. My preferance has always been 50s-60s cars mostly. I really like early super stock drag racing style stuff. I could talk about cars all day. Thanks for asking. Scott


I too had a "71 Ghia. Brings back memories. In fact bought it new October 1971. I baby'd it,took care of it. It was original and clean. the speedo was going around a 2nd time. One summer evening in 1996 while it was parked in front of my residence as I watched tv. I heard a sudden and horrible crash. I about fell off my couch.I ran outside and saw in dis-belief that my 71 Ghia was now totaled and parked on the sidewalk on 3 wheels. Some very drunk lady had come around the corner sideways in her toyota and crashed into it. That ghia was a fine car and ran just about forever! It was cool though in a couple of days she contacted me and wrote me out a check for $3000.
aloha and enjoy that Ghia!

Aloha, Just found this topic. I've already made a couple of posts and had some excellent help from the TC community. My goals are learn some fabrication techniques as I'm in the middle of building a home tiki bar/room out by my pool and learn to carve (by what will probably be emulation of the many great carvers that make this place there altered home). I love rum (currently own and consume about 50 types), love cooking polynesian food and tiki culture in general. I'm fortunate to travel alot so it makes visiting various tiki Icons do-able and best of all I call Atlanta home (and as such have a Trader Vics I visit frequently). I look forward to hanging out here a while and would enjoy tipping a Mai Tai with all TCers that happen to live or visit in the Atlanta area.

howdy folks.

a somewhat tardy introduction from Tiki A. Moaikingbird, long-time 'listener', first-time 'caller'.

i hail from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada (Exotica Gateway of the North), and was introduced to this here site by my good buddy Sweet Daddy Tiki (aka kitsch magnet).

i'm a graphic designer by trade, an avid year-round cyclist, and am fond of food, film, Scrabble, scratchy old vinyl LPs, 50s pulp scifi novels, all things TIKI (of course), and other assorted retro geegaws...

Welcome SamoanJoe. Somebody here has an answer for you. If you post over in the forum "Tiki Food and Drinks", you'll get more exposure for your question.

Aloha!!

Aloha,

Just joined Tiki Central a couple days ago. I'm from Hawaii ... I play in & co-founded WAITIKI, a Boston-based exotica/tiki ensemble. This is a great board! Glad to see so many people living the life of the tiki extraordinaire.

-Randy a.k.a. WAITIKI's Professah Humming Flowah

Welcome Professah Humming Flowah! Does WAITIKI ever make it out to the Midwest, in particular, Minnesota?

Thanks for the welcome, Scott! We haven't made it out to the Midwest yet, but would love to go sometime... (Of course if you visit our website and sign up on our mailing list, you'll be among the first to know!)

I just did!

After viewing the promotional video, I realized how great it would be if our local Tiki bar had some Exotica on the juke box. While I like the punk, I also like the idea of lounging at a Tiki bar. You band would set the right mood.

Aloha. I just wanted to wave hello from NYC. I just found this forum after my last visit to Disneyland. I finally get a chance to go alone without my kids and the Enchanted Tiki Room was closed. I had to make due with Pirates of the Carribbean.
I am a beverage scientist who is always concocting drinks with rum, even though the beverages I make aren't supposed to contain rum. For personal consumption they do. Anyone ever hear of vitaminwater? My newest drink is a tropical flavor which reminds me of a Mai Tai. It should be on the market in a few months.
I am a beach fanatic and collect sand from beaches all over the world. My favorites are the Hawaiian beaches. I only own one tiki mug from Disney, but I can't wait to collect a few more.

Just joined. For me, it all started with Hawaii Five-O. Although when I watch it now I sometimes find myself rooting for the bad guys. In any case, Jack Lord as McGarrett might merit a massive tiki carving in his honor. As might Jerry Garcia and Ayn Rand, but I digress. I have a whole lot of Exotica and Hawaiiana records, and play a rather strange and unkempt style of guitar myself. There is much talk about "magic" and "powers" connected to pop tiki, and yet I figure, mightn't this really be a fun and colorful way of referring to one's own powers to make wonderful things happen, when ignited by an attitude of joy and a gentle but firm attitude towards the world characterized by questions like, "Why not?" and "Who said?"?
