Maui, HI - The island of Maui, a particularly attractive jewel in the diamond-encrusted chain of islands known as Hawaii, is a draw for visitors for many reasons during the winter months. Whale watchers flock here to spot humpbacks that migrate to the local waters for a short time in order toto mate and give birth. Tourists come for the rich Hawaiian heritage in a relatively undeveloped environment, or to simply relax in the sun or visit a spa. Much of the untouched parts of the island are akin to a rainforest, with beautiful sun interrupted by quick downpours on an hourly basis. This made the island a perfect place for Volvo to launch their new C70 with folding hard top, allowing drivers to experience the open glory of the top down and the refined and dry environment of the C70 with the top up.
If you're traveling to Hawaii, we learned that there's so much to know about its culture. It goes so much deeper than our Brady Bunch knowledge of evil Tiki idols and the in-depth background investigation we did prior to going by Tivoing a couple episodes of 'Magnum P.I.' In retrospect, we could have done better, but who can resist old '80s footage of that Ferrari, even if 6-foot plus Tom Selleck would have been beheaded if he ever rolled the thing. Nowadays, he might prefer the C70.
