    This is a great thread. You guys are amazing. In the late 50s-early 60s we didn't even look at rusted crap, but there was still a lot to choose from. It also hadn't had as much time to rot.:rolleyes: Great work here, fun to see.

    This is one of the BEST damn threads on the HAMB! Here's the start of my 32 five window. I'm not talented enough to do it by myself, but I have a talented friend so here we go......

    Yea man, I really love this thread.....really show cases folks drive and vision.
     
  18. Somebody has really got to want it bad to do this.
    Just think if the drive and determination shown here were directed into something world changing. What if our politicians had such drive and determination?
