Date: Saturday, June 19th, 2021. Time: 3:36 P.M. Location: Makiki, Hawaii. H1 Highway. Westbound in gridlock traffic. Pau hana. Another 8 hour shift in the books. A water main had breaked and had affected my commute home from work somewhat for the afternoon. Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night nor even a water main break causing gridlock traffic on the H1 highway will stop yours truly from attending an OSIXHI meet ? Agenda for the afternoon: Hit up this afternoon’s OSIXHI “It’s Getting Hot” Meet & Greet that was to be held within the Central Oahu Regional Park in Waipio, Hawaii

Time: 4:19 P.M. Location: Pearl City, Hawaii. The Miller Ohana Residency. I had called Scott Miller of Supremacy Car Club earlier during the day if I could catch a ride with them in the afternoon as they were heading towards the OSIXHI “It’s Getting Hot” Meet & Greet, and Scott welcomely allowed yours truly to ride shotgun with him and his Ohana in their “juiced” 1989 Honda Civic incorporating a (1) pump hydraulic suspension setup utilizing (1) manifold dump, (4) accumulators, and (3) Napa Group 31 batteries. Time for a selfie ?

And it was time for an obligatory stoplight photo op before making a left turn into the Central Oahu Regional Park ? SMILE ? You’re on EIGHT08 ?
