With the second part of our WEKFEST Hawaii coverage, we will be continuing with our Pow Wow Hawaii experience. Artists from around the world gathered to show off their work, and a lot of people came to see it, that is pretty cool. I view WEKFEST the same way, the artists are the car builders, and are usually showing off are from that specific region, and a lot of people are coming to see it.
I think the thing about Hawaii that makes it feel so special is the way their dedication to the past, not only the Hawaiian people’s past, but also the adopted people’s of the Island including but not limited to: Haole, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, Filipino. A lot of different ethnic groups are not only well represented, but their own culture weaved into the basket, making for a unique local culture.
All of you reading this come from different scenes and different places, but all of us share the same love of cars and the community. I think as long as everyone remembers that, you know the true spirit of WEKFEST.
2002.. but still cool.
Out of all the pieces i’ve seen, this little portion is my favorite.
That would be the infamous Wally Amos, if you don’t know, you should.
