I was wondering if other members are in to vintage cars from the golden era of Tiki? My car of choice is a slightly customized 65 Buick Riviera.

You've got quite a few around here. Futura Girl drives, of course, a Futura, C.B. Howlie has a 64 Falcon, I got a 64 Fairlane, and I'm sure there's allot more I don't know about in TC.

My little beach buggy is a 67 VW bug that's all tiki'd out. Don't know if I will be able to keep it now that I've moved to the beach. Just no parking for the extra vehical. Whould be pretty easy to seel over the next few weeks.

Does a '64 Cadillac Coupe de Ville count as a car from the golden age of tiki? Laney has a '66 Coupe de Ville.




Does a '68 Impala (family) Wagon count?

How about a 63 Lincoln Continental convertible (the Kennedy car)?...and, yes, it's black, but sorely in need of a paint job..hope that everyone finds the humor in the DK sticker on the bumper!

Someone had a converible T-Bird at the "Gathering of the Tribes" last summer that was SWEEEET! White with blue stripes and a big tiki on the hood. The license plate was 'Tiki Brd' or something like that. Anybody know whose it was? I'd love to see pix of it!

Well, I drive a south orange county soccer mom suv and a hooptie little truck(late 80's) but by the end of the summer I hope to have my vintage ford tiki truck. I love cars and messing with them. Welding, upholstery and if I have a manual, just about anything else. The ultimate for me and the wifey would be a black and chrome Indian with a Tiki Theme. Chromed bamboo-look handlebars, a tiki on the front fender and also the tank with the speedo in it's mouth and some tapa engraving .And, and, and..... Hey Fred, PATENT PENDING!

I drive a 1966 Lincoln Continental. Actually, make that I PARK a 1966 Lincoln Continental in my parents driveway, as I am to poor to drive it right now.

I can do you one better than the DK sticker. When my dad was in junior high, he collected campaign memoribilia from the 1960 presidential election. So my Lincoln actually has a Kennedy for President sticker in the back window!

I shared a car with my dad in high school. It was a 1980 Oldsmobile Cutlass sedan. It was mostly mine, but he worked in city government and would have to borrow it for meetings sometimes. I put a Misfits sticker on the back, and I used to love seeing it parked at City Hall next to all the police cruisers with that on the back. Eventually, people took notice of it and he had to scrape it off. It wasn't very tiki; in fact, you were much more likely to find a 40 of 8-ball wrapped in a sweater under the spare in the trunk.

Last car was a '68 Fury, green, death dashboard with King Crimson "In the Court of the Crimson King" permanently wedged in the 8-track!

For me it's a '79 Olds delta 88... Looks like crap, runs like a dream... I'm considering a summer project/party to tiki it out... (since it literally can't look worse) I dunno - anybody good at auto paint? Know where I can get a hood-ornament moai?
