Since i was 9 or ten i wanted a Mustang... not til i was mid twenties did that happen, a '69 then a '71, which i completely rebuilt and had featured in a mag.
Soon after completing i fell in love with hot rods. Billet everything was all the rage in the eighties and big bucks too, it would be a while til i could afford one.
After a house move i had some extra cash left over and jumped in with a glass five window... ooo wash my mouth out ! What was i thinking, well it got me started and rather str**t r*d it was too.
The HAMB to me has been invaluable seeing such fantastic machinery in a really beautiful period style, so much stuff on here it's hard to keep up, like being in a candy store, just don't know where to look first... brilliant.
I soon tore down my car and changed its look, though it would never do... It just had to go.
I currently have a steel '32 pickup with a Hemi, bought from Florida. It too has been evolving in to a more HAMB friendly style.
I've been lurking, learning, rebuilding and now itching to build my own. My next project, i hope, will be keeping the Hemi and stuffing it in a Model A, as the truck is a bit cramped, even for my little legs. Currently saving up to rebuild the Hemi... i want more power !!
Hopefully all the legislation shit we have coming won't get in the way... as i'm having too much fun !
