2nd Annual Lions Classic Car Show

Dubbed a ‘Blast from the Past”, the Waikoloa Lions Club held their 2nd annual event Saturday, January 24th at a new venue this year. lions-classic-car-poster.jpgHaving outgrown the Waikoloa School parking lot they moved this year to the Queen’s Marketplace at the Waikoloa Resort. This year’s event had the added attraction of live music by Robbie Yamanoha and the proximity to the food court at the Queen’s Marketplace.

Okay, the event is still peewee compared to similar events on the mainland. “Cruise Tuesdays” at Fuddruckers is alwaysa must on our list whenever we go to the mainland to visit my mom. I don’t know which I enjoy more, the big ole, juicy, sloppy hamburgers you get there or the oh so, way-cool cars in the parking lot afterwards. It’s a draw and until I figure out which I like better, it’ll stay right there at the top of my list.red-rear-end.JPG

But I predict this Lions Classic Car & Truck Show is a keeper too and will continue to grow every year, so if you’re in town be sure to support it and have some fun!

    This was a good local display. It has already out grown the area in the lot. Next year they will most likely expand. There needed to be better parking for attendee’s. Most of the cars were trailer’d in and that took up parking. There seemed to be several classics in lot because of limited space or they did not want to pay an entry fee. Good Show and growing I’m sure.

    Hi Aunty Betty,

    (Are you the “Aunty Betty” of the SUNGLASSES fame or a different one?)

    I agree on the parking, but I am sure it will get better next year. I wonder if they should charge the car entries less and maybe a small amount to viewers. Maybe they could raise more money that way since it’s all for local causes, but I’m not sure how to get around the parking thing. Hopefully the Lions will look at ways to improve it for next year.

    It’s amazing that they can gather so many different cars on an island, but there’s no denying the attraction for the classics!

    Aloha, “Mikie”
