Except for the jeep, only Chevys, a Ford and a Plymouth. The low-priced three.

Re: Cars

Location

Isn't that near Kumon Iwana Laya?

Found it!

After some Google map searching for the sign in the background there: KAUNA??KAI SALES & SERVICE, I found Kaunakakai, Hawaii, on the island of Molokai. Then I went to flickr and looked around the photo maps and found a few good shots of the area. I think that the Shell station in the background is now Kalama Service at 53 Ala Malama St.
Great site!
