    Ryan- I hate to dis-illusion you but I think that in addition to Austin ruling, I think that as a group us HAMBers rule. It seems to me that when some one needs help, we step up to the plate. Just my thoughts.

    Very cool, I've been noticing a lot of people reaching out and helping others lately. I'm digging it. Went to one for a local bartender this weekend. New owners dropped her health insurance. People crossed religious and political lines to join together and help out. Makes ya think there is hope for the world.

    This kind of outreach to others is exactly what helps make our little community here GROW. Hot rodders are the best.

    ya, i agree, living in wash state, wayso suck's, but after, 50 year's kinda late to change, but one thing about it the rain has made me a lot more of a builder than a car show kinda guy, there always a silver lining some where.

    United we stand and this is total proof what can happen when Brothers stick together. There is not much we can't do as a team and Ryan I never get tired of reading about good things.This event was a massive collection of people looking to help out someone in need and the rest is history.

    Austin does rule. All the way. If everyone at that party were to move to, say, Dirtsville, USA...well then Dirtsville, USA would rule.

    And Austin would still rule, because Norm wasn't at that party...but he DID contribute in a big way. Now if Norm were to move to Dirtsville, USA, then Dirtsville would rock, and Austin would still rule. You getting all this? There will be a test later...

    We drove through Austin on the way to SA about 10pm... with a wife, dog and sister-in-law sound asleep, it was a hard sell talking them into pulling over and hanging out... looks like it was a good time.

    Gracias! I'm not really a car guy (yet) but I love taking pictures of them. I have to admit, that's one thing that has always impressed me since I started working with you car folks is the sense of community and how much you guys help each other out. It's really freakin' cool. :cool:

    Great photos Ryan! I wish I'd had the chance to meet you in person that night. I go to as many events and shows as possible in Austin, but somehow we never cross paths. Haha.

    Yes, Austin rules. My gal and I moved here about 3 years ago and I've loved it every day. The people here are the bees knees and the hot rod scene is more of a family than it is any where I've ever been.

    Dreddybear.... I know exactly what you're saying....and I'm still confused! :)
