  2. I tried to hang in there but it got to crazy the airline changed my flite to a different city as soon as I got it fixed they did it again . Then I talked to a friend who is having a nigthmare time trying to get back to Hawaii . I called a shipper, had them pick up the car I bought [64 fury] to drive to Bonneville and send it to Hawaii . I will try again next year . When Trollst and Bones 51 started talking about going I had just had serious health issue , did not think I was going to make it . Had a lot time to think about things I decided if I it make I am going to Bonneville .I was really excited about it. I purchased the car went cali. to pick it up drove it 1200 put it in storage in San Jose as soon as I got back to Hawaii the virus started .I was hoping to meet a lot of HAMB folks . Hope I can try next year.

    Hang in there Hilo! Let’s hope next year is better!
    But you have to admit it’s kool, that a guy from Canada influenced a guy fromOklahoma to go to Bonneville and together we had an influence on a guy from Hawaii! That’s the power of the HAMB! Sure would have kool to have a beer, together! See you next year!

    Fuck, I'd be going, BUT, two things, my woman has severe COPD, and the border is closed. Piss me off, the salt is rumored to be the best this year.....I'm going next year, cause I'm all set up to go this year.

    Indy roadster is 'ultimate utilitarian', I'd drive that for the rest of my time here...
    Streamliner suspension/construction ideal, the tech committee is due for an appreciation class! I could look at this for hours...like a rolling collection of mechanical solutions.

    Dark tire tracks are not a good sign.
    Depends where they are.

    It doesn't look white to me, more of a mud color. Thin
    The rumors of "the best ever", that is every year, till you get there..........
    Too bad there are no pics available from 2018, the salt was actually good.

  15. If you go you will have more time to refine your remodeling plans, which will result in a better job... See, its easy.

    I think Ron Main had something to do with it. I saw another photo of it recently.

    I believe Poteet was involved in the rubber band car.

    My plans have changed, but still planning to go. Will drive my OT car instead of my hot rod, and can only stay for a day or so...

  27. Here's a couple of pics of the rubber band car "Twisted". Ron had something to do with the car (He's in the white T-shirt),
    I don't believe Poteet was part of this deal.
