eight08netwp 6 months ago

After a two year hiatus due to our world wide pandemic, Covid-19, and it’s numerous cases and out breaks, Spocom Hawaii returned on Saturday, August 27th, 2022 within the Neal Blaisdell Exhibition Hall and Arena bringing together Oahu’s hardest hitting Imports all under one stage

Out and about was none than Old School Imports Hawaii aka OSIXHI posted up at Spocom Hawaii within the arena side of the Neal Blaisdell Center with a host of old school imports under their belts ?

Pictured above and below spearheading the Old School Imports Hawaii aka OSIXHI lineup was Tommy Dolormente’s 1978 Toyota Hilux aka the “Banana” that had been lowered up front via Belltech Mighty Max springs and lowering blocks towards it’s rear adding a subtle stance to this old school import classic, as well as rocking a host of modifications that most definitely makes for a unique build

Rolling under the OSIXHI card was Lance Harano’s “Best Of Show” multi winning JDM RHD 1973 Toyota Trueno Sprinter

Upon entering the Exhibition Hall side of Neal Blaisdell Center, low and behold, I cross paths once again with James Ortiz and Jordan Cabanilla of Renditions Car & Truck Club out of Lahaina, Maui at Spocom Hawaii 2022. I was just kicking it with the both of them earlier during the day at the Lowrider Bike Showoff ? ?
