13716110_10206519581537925_1772770612074888252_nPACIFIC INK & ART EXPO 2016. Our HAWAII TATTOO EXPO celebrates its 5th Year Anniversary this year. Many folks have been supportive and loyal since the very beginning, to include our very own VWCoH (who remembers that the very First “Peoples Choice” PIAE car show in 2012 was dominated by our Volkswagens and so wonderfully supported by VWCoH leaders like Todd T Matsumoto, Angelino Cariaga, Darryl Cambia Jr., Sal Acosta, Shane K Fivella Ed Saunders & more).

PERHAPS OUR DEDICATED VWCoH ‘Ohana knows that longtime Club member, GREG FREY, is one of the owners of the PACIFIC INK & ART EXPO., and ALWAYS hopes “Choke” Club members attend the show every year.13782143_10206519582497949_330686473109856868_nThere is a perfect reason this year to attend the show as a Volkswagen fanatic.It is extremely likely that the world famous Good Vibrations Bug created by The Rusty VW and Stovepipe Finn Pette very recently raffled off in a worldwide contest will actually be on the Expo floor for the entire 2016 show. Believe It or Not, a Hawaii boy won the worldwide raffle and this exceptional one-of-a-kind art car is on its way to Hawaii as we speak, real time. The new unbelievably fortunate owner of this exceptional VW is a longtime sponsor of the Hawaii Tattoo Expo and has agreed to present his unbelievably bitchin’ and groovy Art Car to the 808 Island State at our Expo. ( assuming that it arrives on time)(& because he is an unreal good Bruddah & loyal to da Expo). Incidentally, this great man and supporter of our Expo is also willing to debut this exceptional ride at the next Shaka Weekend 2016. If he does, I will certainly donate dozens and dozens of original numbered and signed art pieces of this exceptional car done by a great man, Stovepipe. (SAL ACOSTA: I will send a bunch of the art to you — maybe for SHAKA WEEKEND raffle prizes, OR even, “free to first. …… “X-number” VWCoH members to roll-in to show the morning of show?13782171_10206519581737930_687840731971318782_nCome to this year’s Expo on August 5 6 & 7 to enjoy not only the craziness of the Expo., but to admire as a VW Enthusiast this rare one-of-a-kind ride.

As Spyda Leano said, “Thank you for coming everybody and let’s do this again.”  As Danny Casaquit said, “It was a good day.” 

On this blessed Sunday upwards of 40 different types of VWs from Vintage VW Club of Hawaii, Westside Ka’ahui Braddahood, and Hawaiian VW Outlaws gathered at Kamehemeha Shopping Ctr. top parking lot.  A little ‘ua’ came down as Matt & Elke Gillooly of Westside Ka’ahui Braddahood led us in a ‘pule’ for a safe journey and return home.  We knew that the little rain was Tony shedding a little tear because we were doing this for him. 

Buggies came out in droves — Spyda Leano, Todd Matsumoto, Sam Martin, Glenn Yahiku (hotVWs Magazine), Mike Archer (hotVWs Magazine), Danny Casaquit, Joey Kekoa, Ryan Okabe, Brandy Les Kaneshiro, Hector Comesario, Glenn Soriano, Lindo Molina, Derek Bigornio, Terry Gabriel, Lisa Miller, Wade, Alex, a blue and silver Buggy (hotVWs Magazine), and a yellow Buggy.  Tony’s good friend, Eric Shimabuku, came out and spent the day with us.  Todd Matsumoto, another good friend of Tony traveled from afar — literally 50 yards to Kamehameha Shopping Ctr.  On the other hand, Richard Oppenheimer with Mattlie Davis,  also Tony’s good friends came from the Westside.  Other notable attendees paying tribute were of course Tony Young, Jr. with his crew; and Tony Young’s good friends Sam Martin and Brian Kim and John Parks and Jon Souza.  Unable to attend but in spirit were Keoki Moore, Angie Cariaga, Kawika Yee, and Gordon Taculao.      

First stop was Tantalus lookout then to Marine Corps Training Area Bellows in Waimanalo both of which were Tony and Spyda’s stomping grounds.  VeeDubbers made their way to Tantalus lookout, parked their VDubs and got their camera and video camera at the ready because they knew that something special was about to happen.  Capturing Spyda’s wheelie — Jon Souza’s shot here or Emelie Ellazar Soriano’s pix here.  Todd with Tyler Matsumoto and Flyn Levi and Michael Archer and Mike Whaley and Frankie Abreu, Ed Kaukane, Joey Kekoa, Wade and Jona did their ritual in honor of Tony Young.

Cruisers then made their way to Ala Moana Beach Park then through Kalakaua Ave in Waikiki through Kahala then to Waimanalo and finished the day with a cold one.  Others cruised around through H-3.  See Tess’ Facebook live of Henry Ader & Tess Roldan and Alfred & Janet Decierdo (hotVWs Magazine) here.

All in all in honor of a good man who is truly missed, everyone paid their tribute in their own way and enjoyed the cruise and camaraderie among the VW close-knit ohana.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATodd Matusmoto and Tony Young, Jr.

Mark you calendar for Sun. 7/8/2017 for next year’s ‘Underdog’ event.
