Aloha from Maui Hawaii
Living on Maui makes owning sports cars a blast. We have the only road in the world that goes from sea level to 10,000 feet in just 35 miles. I live at the bottom of the Crater Road and that's where I drive my cars. I grew up in the 50's in Venice Beach California, and my parents tell me that by the time I was 5 I knew every year, make, and model of every car on the road. I bought a 1949 Chevy Panel truck when I was 15 and havn't stopped since.
When I was a senior at Venice High I put my VW bus up for sale and ended up trading it for a 1957 beat up Porsche Speedster. The Speedster was sold for $1100 in 1967 when I graduated from High School and jumped on a plane to Hawaii to surf. I must have gone through at least 10 cars in high school. I could buy cars for $50-$300, have fun and then sell them and find another one.
The cars I now have are the result of buying, selling and trading for the last 50 years. I drive all my cars and have limited space, but it still gets out of hand at times. I had to build a small garage for my 1980 Toyota 4x4, as my garage only holds 4 cars.
Here is my Dakine Car Collection. At the bottom are some photos of some of the other cars I have had the pleasure to own and drive.

Then moved to Hawaii in 1967 with my 1953 Triumph Mayflower.
