    Thanks a heap for posting these down right amazing Rods Ryan!

    Though I'm on the H.A.M.B even when I don't know it, I/we still seem to miss a few super cool threads-these are perfect examples.

    Thanks again for keeping us in touch with these cars- the real things!

    Great thread! I've missed a couple of those myself! Maybe we should fill this thread up with links to other survivors from the HAMB...I'm sure I've missed many more of these threads

    These are the cars that keep the hope alive for all of us to find that bitchin old hot rod sitting in a garage or back yard.

    It would be cool to include more links to these types of threads as I know that there are several more and I am sure that we have all missed a few.

    Great collection! Thanks, Ryan.
    Love that orange Roadster.

    (I'll second the 'he' to 'she' edit for Kisam -- aka Kathy :) )

    Hey this is a kool post. I think that white 31 with the frenched antennas in the cowl is originaly from up here. I know a sketchy history about it. Inherited by a grandson who who really did not care much about it. He drove it to my place for a little bbq we had back in about 1986 or so. He sold it a few months after he inherited it and then it danced around here between different owners. It never seemed to get appreciated or used, and then disappered from this area.
    It was Packard Powered and had alot of neat aircraft engineering. The Grandpa worked at one of the aircraft plants in Wichita.
    Where was that picture taken? Just surprised me this morning. I must be gettin old when cars from my past are considered survivors. Thanks for the memory jiggle.

    Great thread!
    I find it interesting that a few of the hot rods pictured here and many in the old magazines, although cool, have proportions or details that look odd by current standards and some would probably draw criticism or maybe even scorn from some observers today.
    Maybe part of their attraction and realness is the fact that they were the product of the builder's own vision and resources, not too constrained by someone else's view of what's "proper".
    It also strikes me how many of the old rods done in the traditional style way back then still look so right and, appearance-wise, couldn't hardly be improved on even today.
    The examples shown are the "real deal" and I love seeing them. Thanks!
  20. Great collection thanks! I've missed more than a few of those. Looks like I have a little catching up to do this weekend.

    It would be great inspiration if we could take these builds and have an reference area for them. It would also be nice to edit out all of the atta boys and comments made by others and keep them just post on the build.
  22. Great cars, sorry to hear you are a little under the weather, thanks for taking the time to post.

    You can add Bobbleeds Roadster his Fathers Roadster had some history however it couldn't be found... Johnycola's Roadster... El Jefe's Roadster and a bunch more!

    I absolutely love the Race car survivors lately such as the Willy's barn finds as well as a couple of tri-fives...

    An observation:

    A popular writer/ex-magazine editor recently released an interesting book examining lost and found hot rods.
    Ryan,I think you beat him at his own game with this article? With hot rods featured and discussed on the forum too?

    Thanks for a great thread.
