Kahaka,

Do yourself a favor, wear your seatbelt. I would imagine you're in your 20's or early 30's at latest (if you're older, don't admit it).

I'm sure, like I did in my younger days, you think you'll never get in a collision, especially if you got a beer in your lap!

When I was 26 I got in a head-on collision on the way to the river on Memorial Day. Luckily for me, I just bought a truck that actually had working seat belts, and I had mine on.

Hey! If you don't wear your sealbelt, can I have your tiki stuff when the time comes?

I can't believe that the pork in Cali pull you guys over for not wearing a seat belt. Here in Fla they only give those tickets if they pull you over for something else, and then see that you aren't wearing one. I have gotten 2 tickets in the past year for my exhaust though. I drive a 2000 Honda civic with some work, and the pork has it out for me because of the way my car looks. I am almost 30 and don't street race, but because my exhaust and itake and engine have been modified, I always get picked on.



I just have to ask (with all due respect that is), why do people modify a Honda Civic? I mean it's an economy car.

Let me guess, you have all those gauges on the dash, a whale tail on the back, an alledgedly modified exhaust and intake, all on 1.8 liters of motor.

Is it the sound of the exhaust that you like? I do notice the kids love rev'ing up the engine in park, as though they're going to actually attain some sort of speed.

I'd think a more realistic approach would be to actually purchase a high-performance sports car, say Porsche, BMW, Audi, and just leave it alone. The factory knows best.

Just wondering.

Thanks for the support, guys. I just sent the invoice out, so we'll see what happens.

A friend of mine was recently hit head on in her '61 Falcon by another car traveling 100 m.p.h. (the other car was being chased down a surface street by the police). She lived, but had to have extensive reconstructive surgery in her face; she also broke several ribs and had some internal bleeding. Just a mess. The old steering wheels just tear you apart in those accidents. BUT, she did have a belt on.

If I go in my '54 Ford, since there are no seatbelts, maybe.

If I go in my 2001 Civic, no.

These guys will never know the experience of the oldOriginal Muscle cars back in the 60's. Nuthin like a full blown Goat, or A VW with aCorvair engine holdin down the back.
Here in Florida by the way the no longer need another excuse for stopping you to give you the ftwseatbelt ticket, They see it they write it...Clicket or ticket.
sorry you didn't get the mug Tiki-Toa, woulda been nice tohave a family member get it. I have the Gecko mug and it is my Only one. I don't collect things like mugs and stuff but this one seemed special. Glad I have it.Kahaka, feel free to borrow it sometime if you like

Kahaka and Tiki Toa, sorry braddahz! and Benzart, I'm glad you got one. Makes me proud.

Hey Kahaka, where did the new bidder come from? 808 is a Hawaii area code and I was wondering if they're from da islands or a TC member?

I didn't even know a mug was on ebay until about 7:30am this morning when my friend Freddy called me and told me a mug was on and also ended today. Tanks cd...I mean Freddy for lookin out. Frankly I'm glad I just found out today because I would have been watching that like a hawk hoping you would get a nice chunk of change. I'm happy with da outcome. I can't beleive da high bidder didn't get one from Tikifarm wen they were $35 for about a week or two?

Aloha

Gecko-

The buyer is from Waipahu, HI. She paid almost immediately after I sent the invoice.

I'm sorry I had to give this one up. Hopefully I'll end up with one somehow when all the dust settles. I atleast want to have a drink out of one of those suckers!!! I didn't even get a chance to do that!

KAHAKA,

Glad to hear the sale worked out well. Maybe there's a TC'er out there that bought more than one who'll set you up. We'll keep our fingers crossed.

here in da eye lands, Honda is status. dont ask me why. cuz you wont get an answer.

Honda is also the ride of choice for many, since in How Are Ya, we have:


hiway and road lanes that are increasingly less wide.

parking spaces that are few and far between AND not big at all!

a corrpupt state, city and county increasingly taking away parking lots and streetparking more and more as the weeks wear on....



our roads are in such terrible condition, our cars wear out too quickly; Hondas have cheaper replacement parts costs. new or salvage.


sorry ya asked, yea!?

Kahaka glad to hear that all worked out and I was able to help some in making the price competitive so you burden is less now, and at least the buyer is from da islands, someday I hope to get my Exotica, at least I know Gecko has more sweet mugs planned.
