Here on Kauai in terms of interesting classic cars I’ve seen an early Mustang and a classic 1950s or 60s Porsche.

But what I’ve really found interesting are the numerous old pickup trucks on the island. I know it costs a fortune to ship new cars to the islands so it makes sense that people would keep them longer, but they seem to be mainly models I rarely see on the mainland anymore — there seem to be lots of old Dodge Ram 50s (aka badge engineered Mitsubishi trucks) and Isuzu P’ups on the road here. While California is a haven for old Toyota trucks I almost never see those two models anymore. Maybe those brands had big dealerships on the island a couple of decades ago.
