Reminds me of Hotel Street, from my Navy days!

Dang Larry. A flash from the past. I attended school on Ford Island for a couple of months in the fall of 1968. Being a naive kid from San Jose, CA it was quite an awakening.

What I wouldn't give to live in Hawaii with Pete & Clarabelle to drive every day of the year. Well, and my wife too..ha ha..except she likes winter. Needs therapy! :-)

Jay & Chris, thanks for your photos, love seeing old photos and far away places.

Henry, what was "quite an awakening"?

Tim, I'm with you 1000% and in complete agreement with you (except she likes winter. Needs therapy!), because my wife who has veto power over things regarding warm temperatures would say no to us spending our winters at my daughters in Tucson. Maybe we could get a discount rate if everyone on the forum dreading the cold winters got together with our wives for a group therapy.

Happy motoring,

Warren

Warren...how true & lotsa laughs! Nice winter drive video. Good to have an enclosed car for that & at least the roads looked pretty clean too.

Thanks Tim, it was a very mild day for February 22 (George Birthington"s Washday), I remember being in grade school when we had both Washington's & Lincoln 's Birthdays off!

Happy motoring,

Warren

Warren,

As I remember Hotel Street in Honolulu at that time it was made up primarily of little groceries stores, bars, tattoo parlors and "fortune tellers" (ladies of the night, or afternoon, or whatever). Mostly, it was what is depicted in the movies as a "sailors liberty paradise". There were all manner of nefarious goings on that I knew nothing about. I had no idea such thing actually went on. Hard to imagine I was ever so young. :-)

Henry, I did not serve in the Navy, But my Dad (WWII) and both brothers did, I heard all about growing up in the Navy, from my brothers. I'll have to look into the movie "sailors liberty paradise". Sounds like it was a capitalistic economy at work (give the customer what they want).

Happy motoring,

Warren
