    Thanks for posting!! I don't know how much credit the HAMB can take for restoring good taste and tradition to hot rods and customs...but I think that all HAMB'ers can pat themselves on the back --- and take a little credit for what we see here.... real hot rods and real customs...

    Yes, thanks for the great photos Sanch. Even though I was there these will be appreciated as I left my phone in the car and wasn't going back to get it.
    Man!!! I'm still blown away at the quality of cars you see there each year and it seems the quality bar is raised higher each year. I mean the quality you see there is World Class and will rival anything you see at Pebble Beach. And yes I have been to Pebble Beach.
    For any of you guy's that have never been you need to put this show on your bucket list. But do yourself a favor and take a week to enjoy it. There is so much to see and do besides just the show. Some of the near by shop have an open house type things on Thursday to show off there stuff and talk hot rods and or kustom's. Friday is the best day for taking pic's. It's just not as crowded as Sat. And it will get crowded. Make sure you take in the out side car show on Sat, there no telling what you might see. Needless to say, there are party's all over town at night at most of the larger hotels. Another cool thing that happens that people don't talk much about is the end of the show on Sunday Night. After the awards are all handed out I like to watch people fire up those car's and drive out of the building. Lot's of noise, smoke and bright paint moving for a spot to get out into the night. Put it on you list for next year. But do it.

  12. I have to agree. Most of them are so formulaic as to appear to have come off an assembly line somewhere, with the owners merely checking different option boxes for color, wheels, and drivetrain.

    The three that show some flashes in imagination are the '36 Caddy, the '36 Ford, and the R&C 'concept'. The caddy is beautiful, but looks as out of place as bringing the Queen of England to your mill company picnic. I picture this with Clark Gable stepping out of it at a movie premier. The '36 Ford I'll give credit for thinking 'outside the box' but proving yet again not everyone has an eye for restyling. The concept roadster... what could have been. This car is a slavish copy of a not-fully-realized drawing, and shares that vibe.

    At least nobody painted their car baby-shit green....

    Great pics by the way!
