Default H.A.M.B. Drags Thrash



This time of the year is pretty damned crazy for me as I always feel like I'm burning it from both ends. I do, however, realize I'm not the only one busier than a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest. I've gotten a ton of H.A.M.B. Drags registrat...

The Gold Digger will be back in business this year. It was a tough to sit on the sidelines last year. Got the new engine off the dyno, went to install it, and the new oil pan is too deep. Oh well, the thrashing continues.

I have personally rode in Josh's (TUDOR) '32 coupe in picture #3. It scared the shit out of me so be forewarned!!!!


I want to go to the HAMB drags more then anything. It's the one show I haven't hit yet and I need to get out there one year.

Fuck yes.
I can't wait for the Drags!

...I just wish I was one of those thrashing to make it there.... just not gonna happen, though. WAY too much to do on the Roadster yet.

I know but I just don't know if it's in the cards for me this year money wise. I am trying to have my car finished by the end of the summer and money is a littler tighter then usual with a paycut at work. I'll get there though, if not this year NEXT for sure!

I think it's a 18hr drive or more for me but I know it'd be totally worth it.

Really cool to hear that some of the left coasters are making the trek.

Woohoo -cool to see my picture and 2 other SFCC cars up on the Jalopy Journal!! I was just thinking last night I needed to get tweaking for the trip out there! Thanks for the bump boss! Thanks for the mention JJ and Delton - Enjoyed taking you for the rides! Although, I think we hooked up better out on the road for Delton's ride. ha ha ha It'll be here before you know it.

I sure do hope my inspiration and hero "DW" decides to bring his car and run it. Come on LAW! Get a fire lit under that boys pants.
