eight08netwp 6 months ago

Date: Saturday, March 27th, 2021. Time: 10:05 A.M. Location: Waimalu, Hawaii. Agenda for the day: Reinstall the front bumper cover for my Lexus and clean her up for this afternoon’s OSIXHI Long Time No See Meet & Greet

After finishing up my cup of coffee, my lazy ass decided to head back inside 🏠 to play some video games and prepare my camera gear instead 🤦‍♂️ leaving my Lexus untouched and opting to drive my 1995 Mitsubishi 3000GT instead to this afternoon’s OSIXHI Long Time No See Meet & Greet

Time: 3:47 P.M. Location: Central Oahu Regional Park. Upon arriving within the Central Oahu Regional Park where OSIXHI’s Long Time No See Meet & Greet was to be held, I was surprised to see Tommy Dolormente of OSIXHI had driven his Toyota Hilux with NO DOORS 🤯 I should have 🤔 driven my Lexus without it’s front bumper cover to their meet as well 🤣

Old School Imports X Hawaii aka OSIXHI held their “Long Time No See” Meet & Greet on a Saturday afternoon within the Central Oahu Regional Park bringing together old school imports and like minded automotive enthusiasts for some small kine long time no see kine stories

Fun fact: The last time OSIXHI held a meet prior to this blog was back in January of 2020 pre pandemic pre COVID-19 👇

13 months later and OSIXHI has returned with their “Long Time No See” Meet & Greet. Much Mahalos to the OSIXHI Ohana for mindfully and responsibly holding back on the meets and gatherings during the onslaught of our worldwide pandemic and COVID-19 and waiting it out until it was safer for everyone to get together 🤗

Stranger danger ⚠️ Tommy Dolormente 👆 of Old School Imports X Hawaii aka OSIXHI likes 🤔 to wave 👋 at unknown flying objects 🤣

Pictured above is Jason Kaita’s 2004 Lexus GS300 sitting pretty at the OSIXHI Long Time No See Meet & Greet. The extremely lowered stance of Jason Kaita’s 2004 Lexus GS300 is achieved via an Airrex air suspension, and sits on 19″ SSR Werfen GT-03 wheels wrapped in Nitto tires on all four corners

Fun fact: Jason Kaita also has a 1985 Toyota 4Runner build in the works, and is definitely a build I am looking forward to checking out in the near future. Pictured above and below are a couple of sneak previews 🤫

Pictured above and below is Mike Matsumoto’s Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec R33 and Christian Rodrigo’s 15th Anniversary Toyota Supra both representing none other than SMG Hawaii

Fun fact: Christian Rodrigo’s 1997 15th Anniversary Toyota Supra pushes 600 horsepower on pump gas and 700 horsepower on C16 race fuel, but was actually retuned and detuned and had it’s Precision 6766 Billet Turbo replaced with a milder turbo for it’s daily driven chores

Sittin in the park on a Saturday afternoon
OSIXHI and EIGHT08 just jammin the oldy tune 🎶

We were chillin at the park
Just waiting for the sun to go down
It was OSIXHI and EIGHT08
A Lighter Shade of Brown on a Saturday afternoon 🎶

They see me rollin’
They hatin’
Patrolling and tryin’
To catch me ridin’ dirty 🎶

Hana Hou,

Peter Rosario
