It looked pretty solid from what I could see cruising past. Pretty amazing considering some fairly new cars have fenders flapping in the breeze over there! Saw a few beautiful high buck street rods cruising, some muscle cars out and about, Vettes, Porsches, etc.
I still can't get over how there are more cool cars on that tiny island, than any of the others I've been to (Oahu, Maui, the Big Island)
The dragstrip had a couple 8 sec. Camaros, a 10 sec. 3rd gen Nova, some 9 sec. Chevy's, and a lot of slow stuff as well. Saw a few low 7 sec. passes by Chevy powered dragsters too.

Don't know anyone on Kauai with Novas. Have several friends/customers on Oahu, Maui, & the Big Island with early Novas. Also spotted a White 66 SS in a carport on Maui, but no one home.

We happened upon a car show in Oahu in North shore a few years ago. About 20 -30 cars. A good mix of cars, with some nice street rods.

I think I need to go back and look for more!!!

Yeah I remember seeing alot of cool cars out there as we pulled in there quite frequently. I just thought it was funny, we'd be waiting for the city bus to come to take us to the beach area (Waikiki) and all these cars would pull up to us and asked if we wanted a ride, most of the time for a ridiculous price like $3 or $5 each. They always told us the bus would not show for over an hour or so, but as soon as we said no thank you and they drove away here came the bus which I think was only like a $1 back then. :D

here's a link to a couple local car shows with lots' of nova turnout
WOW!,
I've seen some of the bugs on the street in Oahu, but none of the others.
In Kauai you see them pretty regularly. One weekend I saw a few cars and bikes cruising thru Waikiki, but not very many. Oahu doesn't have a track do they? Where do those guys with race cars go?

it's actually Pakalolo. as in Paka = cigarette, lolo = crazy/stupid. well kauai had one of the worlds largest operation, that was until Green harvest shut them down last year. that operation supplied around the world. bunch of hippies living in the valleys.

When I was visiting my daughter on oahu, i followed that metal flake green nova w/the blower from ala moana beach over to navy housing. I also saw a orange 1st. gen with a blower cruising with a late model vw bug which also had a v8 blower motor. they were cruising waikiki.
If that wasn't enough there was also a 90 something jeep wrangler with a blower skicking out of it's hood, it was parked and had calif. plates. I don't think it will be coming back to cali with that motor stuffed under the hood.
