Just thought you might be interested in seeing my new car that I have just finished! It is a 1962 Chevy Suburban called The Tahitian. As you can see by the pictures it is TIKIed!! And just to finish off the interior, I have a puffer fish interior light!!
Hope you like it!

now that's one beautiful ride! What fun that would be to drive a few tikis around town or hang some longboards out the back to go catch some waves....Your wagon made my day. Thanks!
