Hawaiian paradise in CMR parking lot


Meg Smith

It’s a honeymoon destination. It’s a vacation paradise. It’s a beach delight.

It’s senior Rachel Solomon’s ‘93 Toyota Camry.

After having traveled to Hawaii five times in her life, Solomon just can’t get enough of the “tropical feel.”

With a collection of Hawaiian items decorating her car, Solomon “take[s] a piece of Hawaii to Montana.”

In her car she has her first Hawaiian attribute, a flowery decal on her back window. But in addition she has island-like flowered seat covers with a dainty flip-flop hanging from her rear-view window.

“It’s like I never leave that island feel.”
