First photo: Maui Classic Cruisers members Charla and Harvey Miguel of Pukalani pose with their 1948 Ford F1 pickup truck Saturday during the St. Joseph School Christmas Craft Fair in Makawao. Harvey said they also own a 1964 Mercury Comet and a 1966 Ford Mustang, but the truck was their favorite. “We run this the most,” he said. “This is our toy. To me, this is the nicest.” They said a couple years back, the truck was used to carry Santa in a Lahaina Christmas parade.
