Larry Reyes & the 'Hawaiian' to be Featured at Reunion

This years Rodders Reunion will feature one of the most noteworthy funny cars to ever compete at the nations drag strips. The legendary 'Hawaiian' will be on display and Larry Reyes will be on hand to accompany his former drag strip ride. Larry was the driver of this first in a long line of 'Hawaiian' funny cars, and firmly established the car as a threat everywhere it appeared.

Found languishing in a garage in Hawaii, the car was recently restored by Ted Guth in Minnesota and was re-introduced to the drag racing community at the 2006 California Hot Rod Reunion in Bakersfield. Larry Reyes was on hand to reclaim his old seat for the 'Cacklefest' and the cars original owner and event grand marshall Roland Leong, was also present before legions of admiring drag race fans. After leading off the 'Cacklefest' an emotional Reyes said that being back in the car was "like I never left." Arguably the hit of the entire 2006 CHRR, the car has since appeared at the 2007 National Hot Rod Reunion in Columbus Ohio to similar rave reviews.

Seeing the notorious 'Hawaiian' flopper is enough reason to make this years Rodders Reunion a "must see" event, but an added bonus will be a photo slide show prepared from images made at both the CHRR and the NHRR of the 'Hawaiian' just for the Memphis Rodders Reunion audience.

Register in advance for the 2007 Memphis Rodders Reunion because this one will likely be standing room only!
