Hot Import Nights visited our sandy shores of Oahu once again on Saturday, April 16th, 2022 bringing together Oahu’s automotive community all under one stage that being the Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall from 5 p.m. till 11 p.m.

Pictured above and below are photos of Russell Sanchez’s 2006 Chevrolet Silverado laying frame at Hot Import Nights Hawaii 2022. Although Russell Sanchez is no longer with us in our physical plane, he is still with us in our hearts and through each and every one of his builds

Thanks to the combined effort from Team Kaotik, Nu Skool Fx, Unity Car Club, and family and friends of Russell Sanchez, his 2006 Chevrolet Silverado build was completed for his “One Last Ride” during his viewing of last year

Congratulations on taking home “Hottest Paint & Finish” and “Hottest Display” at Hot Import Nights Hawaii 2022 bro. Ride In Paradise. Always Remembered. Never Forgotten ☝️🙏

Pictured above and below are photos of Arnold Bucasas’s 2021 Chevrolet Silverado, and is the only single cab Dually Silverado throughout the entire world. Fun fact: Arnold Bucasas’s 2021 Chevrolet Dually Silverado was built for SEMA locally here in Oahu Nei, and had recently returned from it’s debut at SEMA in Las Vegas, Nevada a month or two ago

Pictured above is Chad Domingo’s 1993 Nissan Homy posted up at Hot Import Nights Hawaii incorporating a cool 80s display theme with a tent, a couple of beach chairs, and a restored Haro Master BMX bicycle. Pictured below from left to right is yours truly and Chad Domingo 🤙 Congratulations on taking home “Hottest JDM” at Hot Import Nights Hawaii 2022

Pictured above and below is Chad Ries’s 2020 Toyota 4Runner SR5 rocking a 7″ Pro Comp suspension lift while sitting on customized 17″ aftermarket wheels with the face of the wheels mimicking a camera shutter

Chad Ries incorporated an off road adventure display theme around his 2020 Toyota 4Runner SR5 at Hot Import Nights Hawaii and included a tented outhouse that can be seen above towards the right of the photo. Fun fact: An “outhouse” is a small structure, in this case a tent, which covers a toilet. The term “outhouse” may also be used to denote the toilet itself, not just the structure and/or tent

Unfortunately 🤔 yours truly got caught taking a poop 💩 using Chad Ries’s outhouse which was a part of his off road adventure display theme at Hot Import Nights Hawaii 🤦‍♂️ 😭 😳

As did Brian Honma 💩 😳 🤣

As did Berto Dolores 💩 😳 🤣

As did Ron Darby of Island Driver TV 💩 🤣
