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 begins 9am thru noon.  

VW Drivers Wanted:  Recruiting for 3-4 drivers to drive convertibles of parade VIPs.  You do not need to own/drivea  VW convertible.  Simply present drivers license and auto insurance, and be careful driving a ’14-’15 probably VW EOS.  Let me know ASAP, and we’ll lock you in.

Subject: Vintage Warehouse $50 1964 VW Convertible Raffle benefiting
Stephanie Bettiga

My sister Stephanie Bettiga has been fighting cancer for the last 4½ +
years. She has insurance, her husband has a job, but that doesn’t mean
she doesn’t have financial hardships.

In order to help her with that I have decided to offer one of my
personal cars as a raffle item to generate some much needed help for
her.

On December 7th @ Cotati Speed Shop in Santa Rosa we will be doing a
BBQ / Fundraiser and pulling the winning ticket for the VW Convertible

We are limiting the tickets to 1000.

They cost $50 each. Anyone, anywhere can buy a ticket and have a chance to
win!
Winner does not need to be present at the time of the drawing.

More info on the flyers attached and on the fundraiser page for my
sister here – http://www.steppinupforstephanie.com/
or check out the Facebook page here -

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.

Thanks
Greg Banfill / Vintage Warehouse
