I found this really funny article in an old 1972 trade magazine about an all-electric Tiki/Playboy house built in Chattanooga Tennessee.

This photo shows the front of the house with the two large Tikis on the doors. The article also states that there was a giant playboy bunny on the roof.

Here is the inside of the house with a large pool with bridges. Check out the sharp outfits on the homeowners. The article also points out the animal heads on the walls.

Here is the article.

I'd love to find this house sometime, if it's still there. I'm sure it's nothing like it used to be, but it would be cool to make an archaeological expedition. Heck, it's only 90 minutes down the road.

Didn't you post these pics before, DC? Sans article, though. I still remember C&A's Star trek comment, that was so spot on!
The entrance always reminded me of the Hawaiian Inn....

....and its restaurant

Also, somewhat, the Aloha Restaurant in Rochester:

The description adds a whole nother dimension to these pics. What a great example of one person's interpretation of the style!
