Hula Dollars!?! So just how many hulas did you get for your Hula Dollar? Did you get the girl too? Was there like, you know, a "gold standard" for these things, or was the Hula Dollar an easily devalued fiat currency?

This could be a concept worth reviving for tiki events...

Nice digging there, DC. I think that serving ware was actually faux wood plastic - appropriately so. That would be hard to find now...

The Hula girl is Irene Tsu, who also starred in Paradise Hawaiian Style...



...and another important cinematic milestone (for Grog), Women of the Prehistoric Planet!

Thank you BigBroTiki et al for the blast from my past. The Chevron Island material is as iconic as the Smokey Bear cigarette snuffer my old man kept stuck on the dashboard of the Buick. Ironically, Smokey melted!

Komohana,

Those are some GREAT photos. Can you imagine pulling the old Chevy into a gas station and getting your tanked filled by that lovely Wahine!

I saw this old banner for sale on ebay a while back.

A few more entries:

A giant Chevron Island billboard.



And a 70's mod-looking magazine advertisement.

I picked up this postcard from Chevron that was used as a thank you card for car service. The card features the lovely Irene Tsu who did the Chevron Island TV commercial that Bigbro posted earlier.



Funny thing is the card was published in Canada, so I guess Chevron Island went multi-national.
