No, not da blog..... for now.
Braddah Gregory Yamamoto (THA photog/videographer) had an idea three years ago about doing a "local" whacked out version of da Car Show and while only my name came up as to da only one who was crazy enough to do it - I gotta admit it's been fun evah since.
But little do people know dat I nevah evah know if/wen we are going to film it or not. Da first time was like a day and a half warning then da second time was like da day before, dis time..... about an eight hour warning.
It's nevah scripted. It's not "planned out". All we do is get there, do a quick walk around and make sh...stuff up. Ok, there's usually da "ending prop" but besides dat we just wing it. It's nerve-racking trying to tink of interesting things to say and you really gotta tip your hat off to da people who do dat for a living.
Big props goes out Braddah Greg though cause aftah we've both worked a full day, relax a bit, we head down to shoot film for about two hours and pau at 9pm - fortunately my part is done - but not for him. He has to go through all da clips and edit a ton of footage in just a few short hours aftah getting into work da next day so dat da video will be ready.... all for an eight minute clip.
Muchos Mahalos Greg!
For those who didn't get a chance to check out da 2010 First Hawaiian Bank International Auto Show, hea's a few pics.
Started off da night wit some dinnah - Hamburgah steak for Da Wife

Thought da sign was pretty funny asking for change.... I guess da ATM's were pretty busy dispensing 20's all night
Da Wife and I got there about 8ish and it was still pretty packed
Some of da "finer" cars in da show... or should I say cars dat we couldn't afford
Dis Benz was pretty sweet....
And da new 'Vettes weren't too shabby themselves
BMW joined da diesel movement as well as actually shaping their cars to be very aerodynamic as well
Dis Bentley was a real eye catcher.............
But da price tag made your eyeballs pop out
Ford's push to rejuvenate da Mustang
Dis was a very impressive truck
Toyota Sienna is da only minivan to offah an automatic seat "loader & unloader" for anyone dat needs help. It's called da "auto access seat" which is sorta "hand-van" like wea da ENTIRE seat will lower out of da van.
I can't understand why Da Wife said no
Some classic club car action............
There was even da City's Rail informational booth out.... at da "car show"
