Does Hawaii have any TA?
« on: March 17, 2007, 04:13:24 PM »
Offhand, can't remember anybody actually in HI with a TA posting in the 15 months I've been on TAC... :?  :?  :?

Yes I here have a 1980 Turbo T/A.  aka The Menehune Monster.  Do you live on Oahu?

Rick lives in Indiana, I think he was just curious to know if any of the members here lived in Hawaii.  By the way, I noticed that this was your first post, welcomt to TAC!  If you've been lurking about then you also know that we love pics so show us that TTA!

Hahaha -- better late than never, I suppose...

Yes, I live in Indiana, but you are the first TA owner from HI that I've "met".  Post us up some pics of your ride the next time you drop in! :) :)

Aloha! I live in Hawaii and I own a TA, though it might not really count seeing as it's a 3rd gen. But the '74 was, is, and always will be my favorite! Anyway, I'm new to TAC and just wanted to say hello!

Well, Larry -- 3rd gen TAs certainly DO count!  Welcome to TAC! :) :)

Welcome to TAC, navybreese!  We'd love to see your 2000, if you have any pictures to post!

I'd suggest contacting "Larry in Hawaii" via PM to get him in here, and see what he knows since he lives out there.  As you can tell the traffic is a little thin in this section so I don't think we have too many 'birds out there! ;)

Welcome to TAC navybreese! Nice to see another HI resident here. I'm sorry to say that I don't have any info on local clubs either. I've been so busy the last couple of years that I just haven't had time to look for them. I believe there is (or was) a "generic" 3rd gen f-body (Camaros and Firebirds) club out in the Pearl City area at one time. I vaguely recall reading something about it on thirdgen.org a while back. If I do find out about any clubs, I'll be sure and post it here.

I don't see many 'birds of any year when I'm out on the road. I've got an '89 GTA. I've seen a late 4th gen near my sister's house, but it's just a base model, not a TA or Formula. I've heard that someone's got a beautifully restored Bucaneer Red '74 TA somewhere up on the North Shore. I've seen some pics of it on another site. One of these days, I'll have to try and track it down, as '74s are my favorite! I know we've gotta have more than that out here. We just need to find them, and if there isn't a club already, maybe we can start one.

Aloha!

I'm Stationed in HI!
i had an 81 T/A that i had to leave behind in Pensacola, FL... but i've been lookin for the right opportunity to get me another one :)

as of right now, i'm lookin at a '79 that needs quite a bit of work thats right on Oahu! guy wants $2500obo for it...seems kinda high... if i wasnt on a US Government computer, i'd post the pics... but heres a link to the ad itself;

http://honolulu.craigslist.org/oah/pts/1887626590.html

they seem to be fairly few and far between on these islands but my hopes are high!

it doesnt matter if the car needs work, i love doin it :)

Hey last1, that 79 your looking at.. doesnt look to terrible.. and a 4 speed to boot.. big bonus. Standard trans always adds to the price of these cars. But for 2500 it should at least run and drive, somewhat. Good luck and welcome to TAC

Sold a 67 bird while I was there in 2011 so someone has a 67 convertible on Oahu.  Also turned around and purchased my current 78 TA which I brought with me back to the mainland (GA).   Bottom line, brought one in then took one out.
