HANAPEPE, Hawaii (AP) - A fundraiser is under way to keep a broken-down truck in the Kauai art town of Hanapepe.

KITV-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1OBIDQR ) that a 1955 Ford F-150 has been a fixture in the town since 1991 when a local artist parked the truck in front of his gallery, planted flowers in the bed and painted orange flames and planets on the doors.

The owner is closing his gallery and the Hanapepe Economic Alliance wants to raise $3,500 to keep buy the truck he’s now looking to sell.

Economic alliance spokeswoman Judith Page says the truck is an iconic landmark for the town, which has more than a dozen galleries as well as an art festival every Friday night.

She says the truck symbolizes the area’s status as art capitol of Kauai.
