Hawaii VW history repeated on Sun. 7/19/2015.  On 4/26/1986 upwards of 300 VeeDubs paraded into Moanalua High School.  Twenty-nine years later 96 VeeDubs replicated VeeDub history.  Since April 2014 Bubba Parrow of Hawaiian VW Outlaws initiated the concept to re-do this historic event where some of us were born and immersed into the VW phenomenon.  All clubs and individuals came together to support this historic endeavor. 

THANK YOU to Gordon Ortiz, Sr. for the assist in guiding the VeeDubbers into their spots.  THANK YOU to Chocolate Coqui Antonio for trying your aerial drone.  THANK YOU to Marco for escorting us to your apartment building.  Thank you to Flora Nash of Moanalua High School and the Department of Education for allowing we VDubs to rent the parking lot.  And, most importantly BIG MAHALOS to the 96 vintage / classic VW enthusiasts who made this happen.
