As a young keiki our parents took us to Ala Moana Blvd. and watch either the King Kamehameha Celebration Floral Parade or the Aloha Festivals Floral Parade.  We used to sit on the sidewalk and be in awe of the big horses and their pa’u riders and beautiful Queen of the island.  Bet you used to point in awe of the shiny and beutiful cars passing by.  One staple that has been part of Hawaiiana since the 80′s is we VeeDubs.  The Parade Lady, Aunty Toni, has accepted we VeeDubs to participate in this 68th Annual Aloha Festival Floral Parade.  Here’s your opportunity to give back to that little keiki who will be looking for you in your awesome VeeDub.  Does not need to be car show quality.  Our ~50+ years German machine tend to be patina’d, and has become the new and accepted norm, so bring what you got and join the fun.  We’re sure Hawaii and its visiting tourists and spectators watching world wide will appreciate you showcasing your ‘kauwelas’.  Your only requirement is to decorate your kauwela with real floral, wear a wide smile, and flash the double shaka throughout the route from Kewalo Basin to Kapiolani Bandstand.  VeeDubs will be in pairs and spread about throughout the line-up.  The 6-7 stages will read a script of your names, year and make, and color, and hometown, so I will need this information as soon as possible.  Stage and decorate your kauwela at Kewalo Basin at 7am on  Sat. Sept. 27th.  Parade begin 9am thru noon.

On this beautiful blessed Sunday Tony ‘Underdog’ Young family and friends came from near and afar.  Upwards of 30 VDubs came to the infamous Tantalus Lookout.  Tony Jr. driving Tony’s Buggy followed by wheel standing motorcyclists then by a drove of mopeds – all Tony Young and Tony Jr.’s Crew.  The Tanatalus Lookout was Tony’s and Spyda’s stomping ground.  On this clear day, Manoa, Tony’s hometown is majestic as usual.  With Hawai’i's landmark Diamond Head as the backdrop, we VDubberz couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting to pay homage to our brother.

Epic wheel stand by Tony Young’s homeboy, Spyda.  Small sample by a couple close friends – all for brother Tony.  Notable attendees besides Tony Jr. and Spyda are Todd; Gordon & Missy; Sam; Richard & Mattlie; Brian; Russell; Kawika; Flyn.

Look for awesome images by Scott Penman.  Scott (and Christie) took the time out of their Sunday schedule and recorded this event.  Look for Scott’s images on AircooledJunkie on Facebook.     

Ride in Pardise, Tony!  We will do this, again, just for you!
