A glimpse into the mind.......
Have you guys seen this?
no, thanks for posting it.
That's not how I pictured Ryan lol pretty cool video.
Damnit. I was really hoping that video wouldn't make it over here. To my defense, I literally hadn't slept in something like 36 hours. AND, I was like 7 beers and 3 rum and cokes into what would later turn out to be a night of utter debauchery.
In all honesty, I don't even really remember sitting down to do that interview.
So thats where the name comes from!!! I always wondered...
He, he, he.....
You look like hell
I saw this a few weeks ago and meant to post something about finally learning where the HAMB name came from. I don't know what you were worried about, it was an interesting piece and didn't make you look bad. Heck if anything no sleep and some beverage makes people more candid!
That's what they all say. Pretending it doesn't exist wont make it go away!
Great look into the passion of a guy who really enjoys his old cars. I have often wondered where the name HAMB came from to funny that it stuck.
You have to admit the "Old HAMB" was pretty amusing.
That was GREAT !!!! Thanks for posting.
I imagined him taller! Lol j/j Cool video!
When I went to the post office this morning, I could have sworn I saw that face on the wall....
very rarely do I say this but boss. I admire the hell out of. what you have done is just outstanding.you have set the bar up really high.!! you are the rockstar of hotrodders!!!!! and at such a young age!!!
Thanks for posting that! It was really interesting to see who created this great website, and learn the background of it. Kudos to Ryan...good job!
Hahaha just saw this the other day. That's not how I pictured Ryan. Regardless it's a great interview.
Sounds like how I made Corporal for the second time.............
DAMN. I wouldn't even be talking at that point. You'd be scraping me off the floor in a puddle of my own drool!
..."Well, here's your Hokey Ass Message Board..." Awesome. Despite your feelings, this is great! Thanks for sharing your mind!
Not bad. I sat through it all the way.
Right click, add to favorites, save. Great video.
Excellent interview and way to represent!
I'm surprised to see how young Ryan is and that such a young person would be "the one" who would raise the flag for traditional hot rods instead of some old guy...though I suspect he had the support and help of some "ancients".
I made it part way, then the Flintstones came on. Is it mandatory viewing?
Kinda seemed like Ryan would rather you watch the Flintstones.
If anyone asks you, "What's the HAMB?". Show them this video. If they get it, welcome them. If they don't, offer them a beverage and wish them well.
Very good, Ryan! My opinion of you has gone up considerably since I watched this video. My only question is :Why allow Ramblers and International trucks and 48-52 Dodges and other cars which have never been considered suitable for a traditional hot rod?
Maybe because he likes to see what's going on in the hobby. Sort of a window into the world. Or, he likes letting the kids go crazy. It's probably so funny, he just lets it slide.
Nice interview, Ryan.
It must have been a long day, because you even managed to throw in the mention of old Honda bikes...unfortunately that's the shit I wrench on nearly every day.
Great interview Ryan. I can't say that you look anything like I had pictured you in my mind but that's not a bad thing. Thanks for putting together a great forum.
1. Ramblers. You weren't at the first HAMB Drags were you?
2. 48-52 Dodges. I can think of three really great customs that graced the little pages right now that were built out of that era Dodge. Thanks for my inspiration for next week's posts!
Two things here....
1. The Alliance 100% would not have happened if it weren't for two people:
- Wally Parks whom I bounced the idea off of for two solid years
- Steve Hendrickson whom really came up with the idea
2. Of course, the idea never would have worked if I didn't already have a bunch of loyal guys behind me to begin with. For that, I still think it's just luck... I got lucky... Cuz I'm no different than any other schmuck with a website... and all of you guys decided (for some damned reason) to support me...
I'm grateful for it every day.
