I'm posting these pics of my friend Nacho's work. The 1st tiki he ever attempted to make was the 20 ft. Moai bar that has successfully made its way to Vegas and back 3 years in a row for the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender (was sold in November '05 to someone down in San Diego). More pics of his work to come...

Here's more of Nacho's stuff. He hasn't done too much, but he says there's more to come.






20 ft. Moai bar at Viva Las Vegas Weekender

I saw the Moai bar at the rockabillyfest and was completely blown away. I'm glad you posted this, what are the odds(and price) of gettin' Mr. Nacho to create one for me? Don't make me beg.

We took the thing on a 20 ft. trailer and drove our hot rods beside it. The Ford in the pic is mine. Nacho did a lot of the body work and painted it.
