    Welcome to the Mud/Snow State where Sring will NEVER come!
    Up here in Bangor all by my lonesome. I'm sure the multitude of southern Maine HAMBers will chime in shortly.

    Yes. Talk to Pontiac Slim! If it's hotrods in Maine, this guys on it. One of the nicest guys out there.

    I'm 13 generations strong of Mainer, but scooted across the border to NH for a while, about 3 minutes away. Welcome.

    So you moved to Maine. Well It is a great place to be 6 months out of each year. I hope you brought rust free stuff with you. Not much of a scene here in the Portland Area but there are a few pockets of Traditional Guys here and there. Welcome to Maine and HAMB.

    Hi,I'm down down here on the NH border. There is quite a bit of activity in the southern Maine, NH, Mass area, but that's a pretty long haul from Mapleton. There must be some stuff going on in the Bangor area. Welcome to the HAMB. Tom...

  16. Hey John,

    I'm not actually a Mainer at the Moment, I'm on the opposite coast. But do own a house and a shop in Maine and we are getting ready to head back the the Right Coast very soon.

    My job has me bouncing back and forth these past few years.

    I'm about 30 Miles North of Bangor just off of 95

    I just picked up an old Uhaul truck to get my tools, parts and car back east.

    Hopefully your question will help me locate the scene as well.

    Maybe I'll see you guys one of these days.

    Bob

    Well it's nice to know I'm not the only one crazy enough to live up here. 30 Miles from Bangor aint so bad - I could use some like minded car dudes around these here parts. All I've found are musclecar guys and "restorers".
    On a side note, 6-12 inches of the white stuff tomorrow night. Where the hell is Spring this year?!
