I will never have a tatto because he had one and he said any time he was stopped or had a run in with the law they asked if he had been in jail and was treated like a real criminal instead of just a young guy who was out having fun and it got a little out of hand.

By the way I'm 49 and respect both young and old alike just like Dad taught me. Respect is something that takes your whole life to earn but can be lost in a moment. I'm going to be myself and won't fault you for doing the same as long as you treat me as I treat you, respectfully.

The one thing I see here is we all like old cars. The views of what is cool is as diverse as the people on this site.
...

AMEN!!!!!! you took the words right out of my mouth...respect is what its all about...the older guys should encourage and guide the younger guys..why the hel do you think they got on this site????..

not bash them and make them feel stupid!!!! they look up to yall ,,,emulation is the highest form of flattery...

old age doesnt equal instant respect from everyone, nor give you the right to disrespect anyone...it should be given as it is earned....in sayn that my momma taught me to respect my elders even when they disrespect...

an in some famous words(cant we all just get along)lol

Just a thought on the respect old/young deal. It's real easy to get pretty cynical when you read "crusty old f***ers" and how do I screw the old guy out of his...... posts.

I'm pretty much a mirror image of who ever I'm talking too. If someone (young or old) is serious about what he's doing, I'll do what ever I can to help him. If he's trying to build his "cred" or rebeling against the older generation, he's gonna find out how big of an asshole you can be with 60's years of training.

Well, even though hot rodding is a young guy deal, I guess I'll go tinker with the 55 for a while.

Funny pix!! But I remember those days as well, the Dobie Gillis look? College boys? Hair goo, cardigan sweaters, turtle necks, high water pants with skinny legs, super skinny belts (weren't those a hoot) and ties, white socks. You could nerd it up with a pocket protector, too. Thankfully, the hippies came along. Gary

If you want to see what real hot rodding was like get a copy of the book " Cool Cars, Square Roll Bars", by Shuman.

I think it's the big black army boots that you see the greaser crowd wearing more often than not, instead of the loafers or wingtips, that gets me. When you look through the vintage shots, they're rarely wearing anything like the big boots, even on the Bonneville Flats!

I just found this entry... and I have the perfect picture to go with it... my late friend Don Steuernagel and 2 friends... about 2006. Don used to wear a Uncle Sam hat with rod run pins all over it.

Ryan, I always enjoy reading your blog updates. You find way cool stuff, whether retro or current, and share it with the masses. But this blog, I loved in particular. Thanks for sharing this with us. I also enjoyed your 'day dreaming' of who the four kids are.

Looks like the running boards on A coupes have gotten a bit shorter over the years

They did. In spades. But they werent "HAMBers" there was no such place as the HAMB, or the internet. They were just the "older guys" and we listened to them when they chewed our asses out, because they'd been there, done that.

I have related this conversation between me and my mentor here before, took place around 1980. By that time, I had something of a local rep, and had built more than a few motors that had won more than thier share on the street, I'm relating it here as it happened...

Young, mouthy know-it-all me: "Bob, I'm building this 302 ford, I'm thinking of reversing the pistons on the pins, to see if it'll pick up any power. I've done it on a few Mopars, seems to help, what do you think?"

My Mentor: "So you are putting this pile of shit together? Cant see how it would hurt, if you are building it, it'll probably blow up anyway..."

True story.

Dead on the money, 110%, couldn't have said it any better myself. Ask a serious, sensible, well thought out question, you will get a serious, sensible, well thought out response. Age doesnt enter into it one way or the other.

Also an old guy here, I can relate, for me it wasn't rolled up jeans, it was Harley Davidsons and generally trouble, I get roasted over my handle here on the hamb, but its part of me. The good old days were a different time, gay meant happy, now it means something to be proud of....I'm the troll because it was a different time, and I earned the name, given to me out of respect, I was mean as they come, rode hard and lived fast. But, I learned stuff, things I don't do now, but amongst those who matter, I'm still the troll, a mark of respect still.
I love the young crowd, I go out of my way to teach what I know and help the younger guys do car stuff, I will give up parts to those I can help, open my shop to those that need instruction and guidance, even to the very young, as long as they don't tell their moms what hangs on my shop walls.
I don't wish to recreate that time, this is the best time of my life, the best time of hot rodding, welders and tools are better than ever, car parts are more readily available, its cheaper to build a car than ever before.
It was good times though, brings back memories.
