So I came across another cool little “jalopy” today. I guess I’ll add this to my “Only in Puna” collection.
This is a Jeep “Commando” but I’m not sure what year it is. Anyone want to take a guess? I’m thinking around 1970.
It’s in pretty good shape for a “Puna Car” that is nearly 40 years old or older. Remember… cars take a beating here in Puna.

So this is a continuation of my “Only in Puna” posts of pictures that you won’t see anywhere else besides Puna.
Today’s feature is also another car I saw in Pahoa Town:
I’m the type of guy that won’t even put a bumper sticker on my car… so when I see these cars… I am very intrigued.
You can’t really see it that well in this picture, but Tiffany Edwards Hunt’s surf shop has some free advertising on this car. (Note the black Jeff Hunt Surf Sticker on the window).
I’m still waiting to see some “Blog With Aloha” bumper stickers start to pop up on cars around town. I have seen them in a few shop windows. Still waiting for that first car I see to say… “Hey… I recognize that bumper sticker… That’s Tiff’s Blog”

I’m going to start up a little photo gallery that I’m going to call “Only in Puna”.
This is going to be a gallery of pictures that I have taken that you will find no where else… except for in Puna.
So for starters this week, I’ll bring a picture of a VW Van that is often seen cruising the streets of Pahoa Village:
I first saw this van about a year ago, and if I remember correctly it was at the Pahoa Spring Jam.
There are a few cars in Puna that have this same kind of art work on the car. I myself won’t even put a bumper sticker on my car. Different strokes for differnt folks is what they always say.
You certainly can’t miss this driving down the highway. I’m sure the owner knows that it’s nearly impossible to get a speeding ticket in a VW van anyways.
This person is obviously an artist as they advertise their service right on the front of the van.
This one says “Hopper’s Hippie Art” and the number follows it. I have no idea what they sell or what kind of services they offer. If anyone knows, I ‘d love to hear about it.
