Hawaii is made up of a chain of islands. Many think that Oahu is where its all happening and where the Hawaiian car gods roam the streets. Maui isn’t the huge city like Honolulu is, but it is known for its beautiful country scenery and sick rides!
Helluva Rides had a chance to visit Maui on behalf of my kids school field trip so why not kill two birds with one stone and hold an Helluva Ride Meet and Great before we head back to Honolulu.
While on Maui, what could go wrong went wrong, Broken Bus at the top of Haleakala and on the last day getting bus sick and barfing my brains out! LOL than it couldnt get any worst as we got word of a huge earthquake that had it Japan at about 10pm Hawaii time on March 11. and Earthquakes in the region = Tsunami for Hawaii! When you tuned on the TV it was like watching a movie but it was something huge unfolding in Japan in real time! Everyone around the world was watching that huge wave traveling at 500 mph straight for Japan and it was just shocking as it hit land and took out everything. With Hawaii surrounded by water all you hear is the sirens going off as a tsunami was headed our way and to hit the islands at about 3am. With our hotel being right across the beach, We had to take the kids to higher ground just to make sure. And we ended up on the slopes of Haleakala in an town called KULA and the teachers vacation home. The kids had a huge slumber party and with no where to sleep the fathers had the garage that we all froze our buts off! In the AM Hawaii was lucky to get minimum effects of the tsunami.
The meet and great event had to be cut short and with all the events that unfolded that day many were probably at home with there families or thinking of there families in Japan. There was still a few hard cores of Maui that still showed up at the event location at the Kahului MCD’s. The event was made of of mostly Scions from Scion Sessions and SE Maui as well as a few Hondas, VIP cars and 4x4. it is alway nice to just chill and hang out and meet new people. We hope the next event we can showcase more of Maui’s sick rides!
