Default Survivors On The H.A.M.B.



I've been a bit under the weather lately and have spent a lot of my down time just browsing both old and current posts on the H.A.M.B. I've found myself kind of searching out posts by theme and studying where we've been and where we are going. Throug...

Thanks a heap for posting these down right amazing Rods Ryan!

Though I'm on the H.A.M.B even when I don't know it, I/we still seem to miss a few super cool threads-these are perfect examples.

Thanks again for keeping us in touch with these cars- the real things!

Great thread! I've missed a couple of those myself! Maybe we should fill this thread up with links to other survivors from the HAMB...I'm sure I've missed many more of these threads

These are the cars that keep the hope alive for all of us to find that bitchin old hot rod sitting in a garage or back yard.

It would be cool to include more links to these types of threads as I know that there are several more and I am sure that we have all missed a few.

Great collection! Thanks, Ryan.
Love that orange Roadster.

Hey this is a kool post. I think that white 31 with the frenched antennas in the cowl is originaly from up here. I know a sketchy history about it. Inherited by a grandson who who really did not care much about it. He drove it to my place for a little bbq we had back in about 1986 or so. He sold it a few months after he inherited it and then it danced around here between different owners. It never seemed to get appreciated or used, and then disappered from this area.
It was Packard Powered and had alot of neat aircraft engineering. The Grandpa worked at one of the aircraft plants in Wichita.
Where was that picture taken? Just surprised me this morning. I must be gettin old when cars from my past are considered survivors. Thanks for the memory jiggle.

Great thread!
I find it interesting that a few of the hot rods pictured here and many in the old magazines, although cool, have proportions or details that look odd by current standards and some would probably draw criticism or maybe even scorn from some observers today.
Maybe part of their attraction and realness is the fact that they were the product of the builder's own vision and resources, not too constrained by someone else's view of what's "proper".
It also strikes me how many of the old rods done in the traditional style way back then still look so right and, appearance-wise, couldn't hardly be improved on even today.
The examples shown are the "real deal" and I love seeing them. Thanks!
