I spent a few days at the Spring Charlotte Auto Fair. On Saturday there was an AACA regonal show and this was one of the entries.
It was found and purchased at the inaugural Hot Rod Reunion.

Ongais drove it because after trying it on the mainland Leong understood that driving it himself any further would be "unproductive" (or perhaps was reminded of such by his mom...). He tapped his island compatriot for the job and it resulted in Top Gas at the '64 Nationals. Either way it was the beginning of a great and glorious lineage, soon to be know as The Hawaiian.
