OK, I have been challenged with finding a T or something T related while in Hawaii this next week. Wherever I have been it seems that I have been able to find something. Let me know if there are any Model T's on the Big Island or at least something T related so that I do not have to go to our next meeting empty handed.

When I was there back in June to visit my wife's sister and also for my nephew's wedding the closest I could find to anything near the T era was a hit and miss engine at a antique shop on the main drag through Kealakekua. The shop owner said he would let it go reasonable but the shipping back to the mainland was the deal killer. He also had some fairly nice tin original battery and tire signs. Jim

Dale,
Big Island more betta! You on Kona or Hilo side? There is a guy in Hilo with a Model A coupe, at least he was there --uh oh--12 years ago! Oh! Check out the train museum south of Hilo, I believe they had a little T doodlebug. Rats, I can't find any of my pictures.
You might try calling the Parker Ranch museum too.
Aloha!

Jim if he finds a Model T can you haul it back for him?

I've got a friend in Hilo with a Model T. He bought a 1925 roadster body from me. He folded it up and took it home on a commercial flight back to Hilo. I laughed when he showed me the photo at baggage check. The body was card boarded, taped, stacked and wrapped and was only 10" tall. :-)

Check out the Hawaiian Model T song.
I first heard a version of it at a coffee house jam session on Molokai a couple weeks ago.

Love the Model T Song, Kirk. I wonder is the music at the Luau will take special requests...

On Fords Island at Pearl harbor.
Let's us know your findings

Dale,
Been way too long since I was there, I don't remember, but the Parker ranch has been around a LOOOONG time. There was something, I don't remember just what up towards Capt Cook near the "little Grass Shack" as a prop. There's lots of stuff to see, not all of it touristy. One-Step-Two-Step is a very nice place to snorkel, especially if you don't like swimming or aren't comfortable with swimming--even my wife enjoyed it--and a sea turtle bumped into her! Its right near downtown on Ali Drive
Don't know what to recommend for eating, probably the places we went are gone by now!
A trip to Volcano is very interesting too, I believe its pretty active right now.
There is a local Hula show at the Keauhou shopping center in the village one day a week, I forget what day, as I recall, free and just local folks.
The place of refuge is a neat park too, and one can snorkel in some spots there. Both parks have nice places to have a picnic or BBQ too, if you're so in mind. The Painted Church is near the Place of Refuge too.
To get to Hilo, take the Saddle Road, yes you're not supposed to drive a rented car there, I think they think mainlanders don't know how to drive two-lane country roads. If you go that way, check out Rainbow falls and Akaka falls is amazing (short walk to it)
I'm a history nut, so we found Lapakahi State Historical Park interesting--oh and right downtown is the Royal Palace run by the local historical society.
So much to do and see--you need more time!!

Linda just handed me her journal--that beach I called one-step-two-step is Kahalu'u Beach. I also noted that trip was in 2006--so it has been a Looong time! We were a lot younger then too. . . .

Thanks, David, we will be sure to check out some of those places.
