Hawaii, February 2004

Even on vacation you never know what you’ll find! This is what I saw from the road. Further investigation revealed much more. Thankfully, my wife brought a book and was content to wait in the rental car while I explored. The owner, Mike, was gracious and took time out of his busy schedule to spend some time with me and explain his collection. None of the vehicles are for sale, but he doesn’t mind you looking. One thing I didn’t get a picture of was the original WWII Enlisted man’s barracks that he saved from demolition.
