I just returned from a week long holiday in Vanuatu, one of the days we hired a VW dune buggy and did a lap of the island soooo much fun and definitely one of the highlights of the trip!

More pics over on my blog, but heres a couple as a sample

I stumbled across photos of the 1966 Rambler Marlin, which I think exudes classic Tiki style. Not a bad name for a fisherman's choice either.







It came in a Tahiti edition that features a Hawaiian print-style interior fabric.

I'd like to think my car is the tikiest as far as modes of transportation go.........I call it The METiki (get it? It's a Metropolitan!)

Those beer cans diminish the Tiki-ness.

If JOHN-O and DustyCajun were Tiki cars. Which would be faster ??

Also Moderator, how about correcting this popular thread's title from "Which Car is the most Tikish" to "Which Car is the most Tiki" ??

"Tikish" is not a word.

Have to agree with you there JOHN-O. It should be most "tiki'ish" or "tiki ish". Or preferably, "Which car is the most tiki like?".

Choptop,

Cool photo of the Sampan bus. Here are two other photos I found on the web.





And a link to an article on the Sampan bus with a nice history piece from 1959. Apparently there a 12 of these known to be in existence, and one is supposed to be in my home town of Santa Barbara - I have never seen it but I am going to start looking!

http://hahaha.hamakuasprings.com/2010/10/hilo-sampans-then-and-now.html

Now, how about this baby. A 1951 Kaiser-Frazer model that came with four interiors, including the South Seas model.

At the car show with the boys in the Aloha shirts.



Check out this interior, looks like lauhala and fish net.


Look at the mod fabric on the seats.


What a beauty.

There was also a Safari model that came with ...



You guessed it Zebra print fabric.

Just check TIKI MODERN ..and for a photo of the Pele, the Book of Tiki.

Though the renderings I used are not as nice as these. Did you clip these from that Swedish car blog? I have been looking for the originals of these for ages...

It could be a rolling tiki bar.
