What happened to the "Groucho Vs Hon Grudge Match"? Did someone pull a Tito?

This was one of the best shows ever. Would have been better if my car had made it, but there is always next year.

Paso was fun the meet and greet was cool next time we need to do that in a bar I lost my buzz trying to read name tags…….
Check out Kirk the “mr fashion police” The rock O'billy Cuff thing I don’t dig either. But what really gets me is the guys wearing the big ass old lady sun glasses….. Paris Hilton fans I guess….fags in my opinion

I wish the local goofball cars could be kept away from entire Park area from Friday - Sunday. WCK should block off everything for the 72 hr Paso period- Registered cars only. Just my opinion to keep the mustangs and 4X4's from cruising the park after hours....
We were hanging out at a bar near the park watching the fight etc. and a local goofball gang member ran in to "hide out" he said he and his "homeboy" had just gotten in a fist fight with some other guys at the park. I didn't see any other real incidents with the car crowd. Just a little harmless fun, small burnouts etc. I remember previous years where people were doing full burnouts in front of the park on spring street!
Overall I had a real good time. saw a lot of old friends and made some new ones. Nice to get away from LA for the weekend.

About an hour before the Hamb meet and greet, Craig (Hon) took the phone out of my hands and demanded to dial Grouchos number, I reluctantly did.
Groucho and Hon kinda made up, over the phone, but Grouch never showed for the meet and greet, so they never met face to face.
What a shame. They could have been best friends.
I wanted to get a picture of the two, together.

Since i didn't bring a car this year, I decided to "hone" my drinking skills this past few days. I think i've taken some big steps towards perfection. I'm not one to brag, but great progress was made! One morning however, i did feel like i was beat up the night before.

This was my first HAMB Meet and Greet! I wish I would have been able to talk to more of you, I couldn't believe some of the HAMBers I saw but didn't get a chance to talk to! Some long distance travellers!

I met lots of guys outside of the meet and greet, that greenish-brown HAMB shirt is a dead give-away, and I wore my sticker all day Saturday, so I kept bumping into y'all!

Everyone I did talk to were very cool, the funny thing is you seemed like the people I hang out with in real life.

It was certainly the biggest/most crowded one I've been to (since '93). I'm no longer interested in the cruise -- too many junkers, too much gridlock. I think the average quality of cars has declined since I started going, but there are still plenty of cool ones to look at. Still my favorite event of the year!

Yeah....it was too bad 'cause last year the wife and I had a great time hanging out at the Moose Lodge Friday night eating drinking and listening to Vicky Tafoya and The Big Beat and Cari Lee and The Saddle-lites (good old school rockabilly too...not 80's cover crap like this year at the bowling alley). They even keep the parking lot saved for just rods and customs. The event last year and this year were put on by The Cherry Bombs, but this year they failed to do any advertising for it so hardly anybody showed and their headliner "Jezebelle" didn't go on until late because of the lack of bodies. I saw a few fellow Hambers there in the parking lot like Johnnykck and his rpu. We still had a good time though and Jezebelle was well worth the wait....that girl can sing! I think she played again in the park on Saturday night. I talked to MissCherryBomb and encouraged her to let all us Hamber's know what's up for next year. It's a good place for everyone to hang out with their cars and I suggested knocking some bucks off the cover for Hamb members...

Well, instead of crossing Paso off of my "to do"list, I'm trying to figure out how to make an annual vacation destination. My first trip to Paso was pure sensory overload. West Coast Customs indeed! Besides Lead East, the kustoms are somewhat rare at the East Coast shows. The quality and variety of vehicles was incredible. The setting was great, and the side streets had some amazing treasures!
It was great to meet some of you and finally put a face with the screen name. A big Thanks to Denise and Larry for their organizational skills!
