Default The Tuck Fire Fund



How can this be? For the second time this year, one of my good buddies has lost his shop to a brutal fire. This time, it's Tuck. An electrical short in one of his shop's walls ignited a flame that was accelerated by his stored paint products. WIthin ...

Oh for Fucks sake!!!!! That's absolutely awful and I cannot begin to imagine. Probably one of the single most scariest things I think about with my garage.

I hope this all helps Tuck get back a piece of his collection. Glad to hear that no one got hurt. Tough break for sure.

Shit, 160k members on the HAMB, if everybody put in $1 it would be enough to get this guy back on his feet.

So let's all send the guy $5, $10 bucks, everyone here can spare it to help someone in need.

It'll add up quicker than you'd expect.

Well, money has been tight around here lately but I can sure spare 5.00 for a guy who always seems to be there when others need a bit of help.
When you do paypal what ever amount to him, make sure that you click on "personal" and mark it as a gift or other so he won't dinged for the paypal fees.

I'm sick after reading this!
I've never met Tuck but talked many times on the phone, and back a few years he lent me a paint gun to shoot my 53, and gave lots of advice in the process of me learning. it was my first paint job.
I can't say enough about that, and although we havn't met, i consider him a good friend!

I just sent 100 bux outta my coupe fund to help out in the rebuild.
Guy's, help out if you can. I'm sure even a couple bux will make a difference.
And if ya use paypal, send it as a gift. The extra couple dollars we pay in doing so will make sure he get's the whole amount you want to send.

Best if luck Tuck, and i'm glad you are ok..And terribly sorry to hear about the loss man.

Tony.

I have been so devistated by this. Tuck is one of my best friends and its really all because of the Hamb that I even ever met him.

Everything in that shop meant EVERYTHING to him. Over the last 10 or so years I would get almost weekly calls, sometimes daily, or even hourly about his latest score...... everything form car parts, to tools, to putting walls up in the shop.

He worked his ass off for everything... piece by piece. The passion he has is unreal. He has been a constant inspiration for me.

I talked to him at length about all of this and he really doesn't feel right about people helping out.... I told him that it wasn't an option, that we were going to help and was going to make us proud.

I love that fucker.


I will do anything to help. I am working on some ideas and I will keep you posted.

Wow! I didn't hear about this until now.

Great guy, we could've talked at length had we not been in such a hurry. Anything to help, let us know.
