Since no one has posted about the car show yet, I thought I'd get it started!
Here's the super cool video from last years' show...

I'm hoping to have my Thunderbird back on the road in time for Oasis. I pulled the motor and spent the last couple of months rebuilding it. I just have to paint the engine compartment and drop it back in there and it should all be good again...




Also, we've been talking with Otto, Baby Doe, and Maitai and The Hula Girls will be at the car show on Saturday with two shows at 11 and 2!
Pin-up models and hula-a-go-go dancers, Miss Dinah DeRosa and Miss Judy Luck, will be dancing with us!



Who else is bringing a car?

The car show is going to be a lot of fun! Nothing like the smell of exhaust fumes from classic cars (as crazy as that sounds!) <3

Meanwhile....I don't think my truck is gonna make it to the show... Not unless San Diego is all down-hill from my garage... Still needs a motor and transmission..... and, uh, seats.

My buddy once had a truck very much like yours back in the 90s...I helped with the exterior paint-job and my friend upholstered the interior in a black and white swirly op-art pattern - it turned out really really nice!
If I can find my one and only snapshot of it I'll post it later.

Unfortunately he lost the truck in a devastating home fire that destroyed all, including his garage and everything in it

I have a Tbird named Tiki Bird. I have to get the brakes fixed first. I will try to make the date. Right now August is iffy since I am still going to be on work travel off and on during that month.



I've been dyin' to take her on a road trip.

That gold engine, by the way, looks great!

TS, that Thunderbird looks super clean! I don't think I've seen that one at any shows before! I get stoked when I see other Thunderbirds out there. They seem fairly rare.
I'm going a mild custom route with mine. Ditched the bumper guard. Shaved the body and the door handles. Custom grill and custom pipes.... But I still LOVE how they look stock and very clean. Cool Bird!

Hope to see it at the car show!

Tiki Oasis Car Show, Baby! Aloha John, Rob Bennett from The Lifters C.C., and I have been rounding up cars, especially ones that tie in with a tiki theme, or a "Let's spend the weekend in Baja" theme, or both. This year's car show should not disappoint!

Spike, hurry up and get that engine finished. Looking good so far!

Jim, glad to know that you're on board this year! Vintage vans, wagons, and trailers, you're gonna see 'em at this year's Tiki Oasis Car Show! Along with some traditional old school hot rods, vintage iron, and cool customs!

I'll post more pictures in the next week or two, because, hey, I'm dickin' around out in Palm Springs right now. Until then, let me entice you with a pic or two of a car that I almost got signed up for this year: Tiki Warrior, the one that got away.





Stay tuned for more pics of cars for the Third Annual Tiki Oasis Car Show!

Hey Bill it was cool to meet you at Caliente. Here is Marions wagon and my Galaxie 500, hoping to have more "period correct" wheels on hers before Oasis. We bought it with the 17's on it, but it will get bags and 15's eventually.

Does anyone know Marion and Brad, and can put me in contact with them? Much thanks in advance!
