Just thought I might share my newest Moai inspired tiki torch. Its a 15 foot tall hand formed aluminum tiki torch. It has tail fins and a Moai face. I brought a small version of this to Tiki Oasis several years ago- it was next to the Ku Bar. This is the Big brother- Not only does it shoot fire, but it also has a disco top knot for night time partying when the fuel runs out.
The body was a drop tank for an airplane (auxiliary long distance fuel storage that could be dropped when emptied) the face and fins were all handmade from 18 gauge aluminum and riveted together. It took 3 months to make and 2 weeks to polish out. It was "commissioned" by the Easter Island Music Festival that happens in Oklahoma- which sounds cool- but has nothing to do with tiki stuff or easter island. Hopefully i can upload some more pics of the disco top knot. It was pretty shiny too.

Impressive, I like, and of course I would like to own the car.

That would look good next to the Airstream at Mojave Oasis campground.
