So sorry to hear of the fire, I think the T shirt biz was not in there, My heart goes out to Tuck, he has always been very nice and good guy, even when I would stop by and visit(bug) him on my monthly trips to Duluth. I hope at least something can be salvaged.

keep your head up tuck...jason graham from portland ,tn went through the same thing and came back stronger than ever. i know it might sound crazy but he got funds from selling pictures of the burnt cars. i'm not sure of the details if the person who took the pictures sold them to raise money or if jason sold them himself, but i do know that one of the pictures ended up on the cover of a cd, and he rebuilt some of the cars that were burnt to a crisp in the fire. it may seem like the end of the world right now, but just keep on keeeping on...!

holy shit, Ive only just talked to Tuck on the hamb a few times, so I dont really know him......but that is a horrible sight. If that is the hot rod that was built on Mad Fab, where bob bleed stop and took a minute to say " you have to have passion to build and drive these cars" ....im gonna be sick. hell im already sick. I dont have any money to send but I'd like to send him something to help get his collection started again...that his home address there? Im assuming I could send him a package to that address...right?

I am a new guy sort of, and do not know him personally. Still I hate to see anyone with the passion go through something like this.Things are kind of tight here, but Heh, we ARE family here. I sent what I could.

Sad, Sick, Angry, Powerless....

I can't think of words that express how I am feeling about this.

That shop was 25 yrs worth, a lifetime, of influences. Every person I ever knew that walked in there, spent some time talking, walked out wide-eyed, energized and with a deeper understanding and appreciation. Around every corner there was something special with a story.

It was like a ground zero of old car passion. So much more was lost than just parts, tools and projects.

I can't say it like Bob did, but I too have shared many stories about the scores, the plans, the journey...

Man..i remember the 48 hr paint and body work thrashes, the chops, THE lincoln engine. I remember taking a week off of work one year just to spend time helping in there, walking away more inspired than ever.

Tuck is so humble. That was a special place.

Good luck Tuck

Sent a small donation your way Tuck!
As brian said, if everyone on the hamb were to send a dollar or two (or more) we can get Tuck on his feet again. Hang in there!

Damn. For the past month or two, I have been working on the house and garages, repairs, roof, paint, remodeling, and no end in sight for some time. Busy as hell, then last night the f ing gfi shut off killing the sub pump = flooded basement...This morning I am standing on the front porch getting the kids off to school and notice water dripping from the ceiling = leaky roof....not good. So after lunch before I start cleaning the basement again, I want to get on the Hamb and feel good about some car build or one of my friends accomplishing some cool shit, and I read this......Tuck, I can't imagine what you are feeling right now. Just know that you have a ton of friends and we are here for you! Take the help....you deserve it all right now.

Don
