Fresh from the Aloha State
Hawaii. What is there NOT to like about this island? You got Zippys, nice weather, awesome culture, beautiful scenery, and did I mention some of the freshest rides I have ever laid my eyes on? Oh yea, they have some pretty bad ass drifters from the Aloha State, but i’m sure we will get into that in some future posts. The FTLC crew made our way over from the Mainland this past Friday in preparation for our 2nd HellaFlush event being held at Aloha Stadium. We were greeted by heavy rain BUT 80 degree humid weather, it was awesome! Given that we left San Francisco during a cold front, it was great to get away from the chilly mornings and winds. We were praying that the weather held up for the weekend and I guess they got our calling. After some high clouds on Saturday morning, the sunshine peeked in throughout the day making for some pretty dope photographs. Hawaii loves their cars, just like the rest of us. But for some reason, they are on a WHOLE different level than what i’m used to seeing. Here, take a look…
I’m diggin these trucks. Definitely something I don’t see very much in Northern California.
This one is just crazy!
This truck could probably run over most of the cars in the show, literally. AW NUTS? Abbitt Wilkerson?
We had a good amount of Honda/Acuras in the show. This yellow Type R had me drooling like a fat kid at Leonard’s Bakery.
Wouldn’t you love to have this pair of Accords in your garage?
Which set of SSRs do you prefer?
The VIP scene in Hawaii is straight up RIDICULOUS! I’m still speechless.
Here’s a few Euros that caught my eye. There weren’t many in attendance at the show.
I had to take multiple breaks from covering the event to assist in the FTLC booth. It was a cool experience, just like last year, because I got a chance to meet a lot of the locals and hang out for bit. The booth was definitely hectic was it was a lot fun.
Wes was our MC of the event while DJ Wish provided the beats and Phil 360 filmed the event. I’m sure all of you are waiting on his video. It should be EPIC, just like all of his previous videos.
I found myself becoming speechless a lot at our event. Can you blame me?
What would a HellaFlush event be without some dope 240s?
There were a handful of vintage cars but this Mango is just too clean! It earned a feature in Super Street so keep an eye out for it.
Coolers are overrated…
The fitment on this S2K is SO on point!
Being a Subaru owner myself, this STi ranks extremely high in my book. I love the WRB/White color combo.
If Knight Rider drove an import, this is what he would drive. So gangster!
Best of Show. FACT!
Here is the rest of my photo set. Too many awesome rides…
We ended the show with a pretty intense B-Boy battle. B-Boys of all ages represented and killed it!
Well Ladies and Gentlemen, that’s it. A huge MAHALO to everyone that came out to this event and supported us. We will see you all soon!
