We Did It Again.... VLOG Now Up!

March 26th, 2009
By

If you haven't noticed by now, I've been trying to give away tickets to the 2009 First Hawaiian Bank International Auto Show but there were no takers.  :sad:

You don't have to be in the position to buy a new car - we know most of us can't at the moment - but if you're a car or truck enthusiast it's the perfect venue..... plus it's FREE!

Since no one wants 'em, I thought I'd bring a little bit of da car show to you!

* But if you're still interested in the tickets, let me know! *

So hea's a few of da cars - some with price tags - :shock: - and while I don't know most of the cars names.... I'll let you guess wat they are called... like a game.  :wink:

CLICK HEA IF YOU NO CAN SEE DA PICS

 


Guess how much?................................ :shock:
$1,000,000.00+
Seriously..... no joke. They have a guard sitting sitting right next to da car for make surah nobody touch 'em.

 

 


Weird design of da year award.....

 


And hea's da inside roof. :roll:

 


Hey Uncle Rodney! Pimp yo' ride! :grin:

 


How's dat engine! A V10!!! Vvvvvrrrrrrooooom!

 

Also got to hob-nob with some high profile people too.......


A man can dream.... can't he? :grin:

 

     

SHOUT OUT: Just want to send out a HUGEMANGEOUS Mahalos to 2B for helping WWD! with da "backstage" passes! It was great to "run amock" at da car show! :wink:

And anoddah HUGEMANGEOUS Mahalos to Greg Yamamoto (Honolulu Advertiser's photog/videographer) for running da video shoot..... yeah, da newsroom requested a WWD! VLOG again since people was asking for anoddah one. :shock:

And since he's always "behind da camera", hea's a shot of him...... still behind da camera.


Greg's on da right.... obviously

Once it's up live I'll post a link here so you guys can check 'em out so check back often.... please. :wink:

But no buss my olo's if not up to par cause had choke pressuah for make 'em "good". :grin:

  10. roach:

    BL,

    The white Audi R8 Coupe is beautiful. In my younger days, I would probably be drooling over it but now its too close to the ground for my knees. That's why I now stick to SUVs and trucks because its easier to step up than down.
    Was this like a sneak preview or what ? The place is kind of empty.


  11. BananaFysh:

    Hey BL -

    Whoa, dat's some nice cars!

    Cheee-hoo! We get treated to another video? Right on! :D

    I agree, you should have your own tv show.

    Then you can call out those dummies who walk across your practice field on tv. ;)

    kako mochi:

    roach:
    The white Audi R8 Coupe is beautiful.

    I was told it's da same car as in da X-Men movie.

    In my younger days, I would probably be drooling over it but now its too close to the ground for my knees. That's why I now stick to SUVs and trucks because its easier to step up than down.

    You should have seen me getting in/out of da Lambo.... :roll: Das why I like trucks too! :wink:

    Was this like a sneak preview or what ? The place is kind of empty.

    Rogah! Sneak preview for all da sponsors, dealers and high makamaka people. Da show starts today for da public.

    uncle rodney should pimp out his xb like the black vip style xb next to the scion booth.


  38. 2B:

    Was happy to help you get behind the gilded gates into the Lambo. Gotta keep it fresh for da oddah readers, and try drool at da cars we nevah going to afford.


  39. anklebiters:

    BL:

    How many MPG do you get on the Lazer per 12oz of BEEa ? :lol:


  40. acuradriver02:

    BL,

    Hey, thanks for the VLOG. Throughly enjoyed it! 6 stars!! I especially liked your hightlight of the Acura booth :-)

    How come no more footage of the Ferraris??? I vowed to get one before I die.


  41. BananaFysh:

    BL - Good job (as usual) with the VLOG! :D

    As a fellow short Asian, I appreciate your commentary on accessibility. ;)

    I still think you should take over for Andy Bumatai. Dat buggah is past his prime. Time for some new blood! You can doo eeeet! :D


  42. Kelli:

  45. Ynaku:

    Brah, get the F-150. I get one and you can put one 6-pack bee....soda in all the cup holdas. Mine no more the Asian package though. Me big Filipino but my wife smaller (get short legs) so every time I get home from here, I know she using MY truck cause I hit my knees on the steering wheel. She put the chair all the way in front and the steering wheel all da way down. Das why I no like drive her car. Her car so low to the ground I gotta crawl in and out. WWD!!!!!!!!!!!


  46. Braddah Lance:

    Have you been saving since birth? :lol: And da Ferraris were behind da "gated area". Plus couldn't really see inside cause da everything was closed shut. Just admiring da outer beauty..... did you know dat they don't have a clutch? :shock: All fingah shifting - no clutch needed.

    BananaFysh:

    Kelli:
    Woah! Too fancy. I wouldn't mind having a Prius. I wonder if still gotta wait long time to get one.

    I dunno Kelli-Girl. There were quite a few oddah "green" cars dat looked bettah than da Prius, imho.

    No mo' enough material.... plus, you gotta be quick and witty..... both skills I do not have. :grin: I can be loud though. :grin:
    .
    .

    Ynaku:
    Brah, get the F-150.

    I've always liked the F-150 but the reliability factor and price always swayed me oddahwise but the redesign and "features" may get me to sell my Tacoma and buy the F-150.... if I can try and save up.


  47. anklebiters:

    BL:

    My son has the F-150 Lariat, extended cab. It's a nice truck...sometimes you don't even know you're going 60mph in a 45 !!! The a/c is not very strong...well known grumbling among owners. No Asian package....just the BOOM BOOM BOOM package and VROOOOOOM VROOOOOM VROOOOM exhaust package.


  48. acuradriver02:

    >BL: did you know dat they don't have a clutch? :shock: All fingah shifting - no clutch needed.

    Yup, I knew that. Do you know why that came about? Actually came from their F1 racing experience...driver went stall the car and lost a race, so they revamped their transmission, so can do clutchless shifting.

    That's surprising that they had no problem with you sitting in the Lamborghini, but wouldn't even let you breathe on the Ferrari.


  49. Braddah Lance:

    anklebiters:
    My son has the F-150 Lariat, extended cab. It's a nice truck...

    It is but... it's $$$$. :sad:

    acuradriver02:
    Yup, I knew that. Do you know why that came about? Actually came from their F1 racing experience...

    I figgah'd so.... just like da video games. :wink:

    That's surprising that they had no problem with you sitting in the Lamborghini, but wouldn't even let you breathe on the Ferrari.

    Actually I could have sat in any and every one but just chose to sit in da Lambo cause it was a convertible. Da rest looked fancy but "normal". Dat orange Lambo really stood out. :grin:


  50. BananaFysh:

    You know what is funny?

    The Lambo doesn't have "Lambo doors." ;) WWD!

    Funny when you see those doors on a Civic. I wonder if those people try open those doors in parking structures and bang the concrete ceiling? Ouch!


  51. kate:

    The thing is BL, you don't have to be smart to drive the Smart Car. You have to be brave. That's one ugly car and looks like a cross between a Pacer and a golf cart. I've seen her drive that thing and the sucker can go pretty fast (dunno about freeway but she can tear around on surface streets) but the big SUV drivers cannot see her.

    Speaking of golf carts, a friend of mine has one and she uses it to drive around her neighborhood to visit friends and family. Drive one of those on the streets is scary...she speeds and takes sharp turns. Gotta wear the seat belt of you fly out of that thing.

    I NEED a new car but the husband said NO!!!


  52. 2B:

    Should have sat in the Audi R8 and had Iron Man plying in da background. Too bad was raining, Greg could have taken you fo one ride in the Bently he had parked outside. He get da R8 today........


  53. Ocean Lover:

    BL.................HOW MUCH was that orange "Lambo"? I pass by it every time I go walking as its in the AUDI dealership on Beretania RIGHT NEXT to the GOODWILL store. :shock:

    I take it the black Ferrarri is also over there as I didn't see it when I walked by the dealership this afternoon. THAT ONE........the price was $278,000!!!!!

    I still can't get over the irony of those types of cars and price tags NEXT to the GOODWILL STORE.

    OL


  54. kate:

    OL - It would make it so convenient for people like me. If I bought a car like that, I would have to do the rest of my shopping at Goodwill...!


  55. Makiki:

    I guess now you one high makamaka. To think it all started with this little blog.

    BTW - what happened to FGF?
