  5. No way!
    Man....it doesn't seem that long ago that I was looking at that truck (on like HAMB version 1.1 or something) thinking, "Its about time people started doing cool things with trucks again"

    Wow.....

    Damn man... what a double edged sword this is..
    It's good to get the cash from the sale, but sucks to see it go.

    That IS one cool truck!

    Where in NY is it going?

    cool, I hope he/she brings to the NY Rumblers show and Lead East...
     
  16. Sad and happy day, as I know you have been trying to sell it for a while now. That truck is sort of the Brewsir identity, we'll have to get used to seeing you in a different vehicle!
     
  17. One of the last bastions of the old HAMB, I dig the Maroon/flamed version best!
     
  18. CONGRATULATUIONS! Now, you can exercise that imagination and build that....what izzit? A 38 ford roadster pickup? sounds kinky. I love embarking on a new project.
    The Batfink is dead! Long live the Batfink....
    I'm happy a fellow HAMBer got it but seeing them go gives a guy a little catch in the throat sometimes...

    First the carson topped custom and now the truck. You must be one of the strong ones to part with two super projects and still maintain your sanity. You've got some big shoes to fill with the next build. Be sure to share it with the rest of us.

    Wow, didn't think of that. Probably will be tha last one off since its coming way east. Might not be loaded to go, they may reload/rearrange at another terminal.

    Our other vehicles were all shipped enclosed so this is a first for me.
    I don't think they give you a choice. Was a decent price for shipping though.
    I'm sure it'll be fine. Thanks for the input!

    I'll miss that truck too... every time I saw it I had to go look at it one more time even though I'd seen it a thousand times.

    But I know the new project willcome out just as cool.

    Take Care!

    Hard to comprehend, that truck is such a NorCal staple. I remember the first ime I saw it was at the 50th Bonneville. It stopped me in my tracks.
