OK, I know this isn't exactly a tiki event, but we do have some kustom kulture vendors selling cool tiki stuff and a couple of great surf bands! Also, I know there is a huge hot rod crossover on this board, so I figured I'd put the word out.

It's the 8th Annual Road Agents Hot Rod Rumble
9 Rockabilly and Surf bands
Hot Rods, Custom Cars, Choppers, '50s style burlesque, vendors and so much more.
All the information is here if you want it:

PM me if you need more details!

Luke

Cool! Friday night is a little more "wild", especially as the night wears on. Saturday is more the car show and vendors, but still lots of fun.

Had a great time at the show (Thanks Luke!). My personal highlight was the rockabilly version of Prince's "Lets Go Crazy".

The little lady bought a ton of vintage clothes & stuff, and I just drooled over the hundreds of sick rat-rods & customs there.

Bargoyle needs to customize something....

I've started on the snow blower...got a nice chrome skull shift knob on it. I'm thinking of welding some teeth to the front, and paint the sides with an open mouth (ala WWII spitfires). Maybe some nice pinstiping on the handle bars?

Hey, it'll hold me over until I get my Studebaker Hawk (someday).

Hey Kahuna, I looked for ya.

Galaxy was one of the tents along the back tree line, right? (Like if you came in, walked through the pavilion and just kept going straight until you hit woods...that side).

Of course, I may have walked right past ya. I was a few cocktails into the night when we met at the Milky Way. You were the blurry section of color that I was talking to that night, right? lol

But seriously, sorry I missed ya. We had a great time. And it really did rekindle my desire for the Hawk. Now if I just had any mechanical talent.....

Bargoyle, THANKS for being there! Glad you and Jess had a good time! Lot's of neat stuff there for sale. I got my shrunken head from Tomcat Barbers
He had other cool ones too, including a shrunken Jesus head. Strange but true!
BTW, did you know that you had at least 3 "tour attendees" at the show? (that I know of!) and two others who are on the waiting list! I also overheard someone talking about it at one point too! You've created a monster!!!

Damn! I think I walked right past you guys multiple times. Damn this wet brain of mine.

Really dig the shrunken head, Luke. Also I got your package yesterday. SUper-cool. Thanks a bunch.
