    Hi Folks, I've been in contact with the organizer of the annual Oahu Car Clubs' Toys for Tots Car Show (Honolulu), and they would love to have the Tesla Hawaii club represented this Sunday. The more Tesla's, the merrier they said--so here ye here ye, come one, come all Model S & Roadster owners! They expect to have 500-600 vehicles on display. I'm going to post the event details, which will include when and where to enter prior to the show start time in the Hawaii Groups section. They said to bring a pop-up tent if there's a handful or more that can attend as it will likely be hot. The show is from 8AM-12PM THIS SUNDAY 11/24/13. Please check for additional info regarding setup in the Hawaii Groups section--I will post it a little later today.

    For spectators, here's the show info:

    What: 2013 Oahu Car Clubs Toys for Tots, toy drive & car show.
    When: Novemer 24, 2013 from 8:00 am to 12:00 noon.
    Where: 160 Ahui Street, Honolulu, HI. The location is the large parking lot located on the Diamond Head side of the Childen's Discovery Center in Kakaako.
    Why: To support Toys for Tots! Bring a toy and stay for the car show. Please help Hawaii's children to have a nice Christmas holiday.

    Cheers! WeazL

    So what's the head count so far? Do we want to pick a spot there to line up our cars?

    I can make it but probably not until 930'ish. Good thing I was planning to wash my car today. Save me a spot? I'll bring the Tesla poster.

    I've sent the organizer a count so we should be grouped together. I plan on arriving early around 7. Check the groups section for my phone #. If anyone else can make it, please let me know this evening so I can revise our count. Thanks.

    Had a nice time at the show. they had lots of toys for the tots.
    Lesson Learned: don't loan your car to a TV show host. you may never get it back.:crying: (see Island driver on OC16 for details:confused:)

    Thanks to everyone who made it out to the show today. We got to share a lot of Tesla info and yes, I agree--I think we actually sold a car today! It was very hot, but a beautiful day for such an event. Last count I heard was more than 450 toys were collected for Toys for Tots!

    Keep an eye on Island Driver on OC16 in about 2 weeks (maybe 3). They interviewed dsmith2189 and had a lot of fun...but as he mentioned, watch out for those show hosts...they might fall in love with your car :love: ...you'll have to watch the show to get it.

    Overall though, we represented the Tesla's well...and there was a lot of interest! It would have been nice though to have a roadster or two there. Nigel, drive over next time...use the new H4 interstate tunnel once you hit the west coast. :tongue: I'll post some pics tomorrow.

    We stayed to the very end when most left so the lot was quite clear in the last 2 pics. There were 400+ cars at the show.
