Hello, I haven't had much luck posting to this site, here's attempt #4.
I am the proud builder of "The TikiMobile" . The eyes (and tongues)of the Tikis in front, are the turn signals.(They flash). The car is made of wood, just like a tiki bar. The car is white in color because the car will be dry-erase (right now it is currently white primer). I have heard locals call it "the car that makes you smile". It is more fun than ANY vehicle I have ever owned. I also have a pink and white '56 DeSoto Firedome (Yeah, it's got a hemi), and a mild custom "63 TBird. _Pagogo

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.



Mine's a '63 Comet Custom convertible 260 V8 (here shown at Caliente Tropics, 2004)



Bought in Hermosa Beach in 2004... driven to Chicago on a Route 66 roadtrip in 2005... shipped to England...

We're driving it to Sweden next week (2,000 miles round trip) for the A-Bombers Old Style Weekend. All that way only to have to park it in the 'out' field as it's post-56!!!

Stopping for tiki drinks overnight in Hamburg and Rotterdam on the way home!

We also have a '50 Buick (did the trip to Sweden in 2005) '52 Chrysler sled, '60 Fury, and European cars: MkII Zodiac, '67 Beetle and 3-will-become-1 Triumph Vitesses. But the Comet's the golden era of tiki!

Found a '58 DeSoto Firedome yesterday ... wondering whether to buy?

You and I should talk sometime. Was this ever used on the rails, like a Hy-Rail or did you add the decals?

Here's my 1955 86" series 1 landrover right hand drive. She's currently in the process of being lightly tikified (fake bamboo on the soft top hoops n' such). THis is her in her winter coat (safari hardtop). She's topless at the moment. She was my daily driver (and running grand) until a few weeks ago when my gearbox oil started pouring out of the timing pointer cover. (timing chain kicking it up and out, I think). anywho - hopefully she's off to the rover doc this week so I can get to cruising around in her again soon.

My friend Mike has a Willys he calls the "Tiki Tub". Here is a photo of my wife Laura in the Tub at her birthday party/car show this last August.
