Simiona Mamala heads off to work in his friend’s 1970 Volkswagen Transporter Pickup on Thursday after filling up with gas in Kihei. He said the vintage rig was still working hard to fulfill whatever job is required. “I was having some fuel problems this morning,” he said. “I had to blow out the fuel lines, but it still runs. It purrs.”
