    I looked for him all summer. There is a big hole in my world that Bob once filled.

    Yep. My computer wallpaper is that famous pic of Bob in a H.A.M.B. ball cap. I see him and miss him every day.

    The Custom Car Revival is not only just about the last car show in Indianapolis, but it’s always been the best. Top quality cars and top shelf people.
    The highlight for me is to see Bob K, Earl Scheib, and KustomLincolnLady each year. Sometimes I get to see a few other great HAMB’ers too but I could always count on these three for sure.
    Bob ALWAYS told me happy birthday each year for probably 15 years running and always made me feel like the rock Star when I ran into him, even though there was no question that HE is the rock star.
    It was my pleasure to know him and a source of pride to have him call me friend.

    The other day I was digging through some old PM's looking for some information and ran across one of his birthday messages. It hit me like a ton of bricks, but was a great reminder of how thoughtful he was. In a time when we could all use some positive vibes like that, his positive energy is not forgotten.

    Gone too soon...

    The man is missed. I hosted him here in the Black Hills more than once along with all the other events we ended up at. I cherish the memories

    Never met Bob, but through the power of H.A.M.B. he feels like a good companion to me.
    He still lives on in a lot of good stories to be told here.

    I miss Bob....and Larry. All the younger hot rodders need to shut up, sit down and listen when the stories start from the older gents.
