    Does anyone know who was flying the drone around during the hillclimb and where one could find the video?

    I overheard that it was Piero but that I can't say for sure. He is the guy that makes the Mad Fabricators videos.

    I just confirmed. Look up Mad Fabricators Instagram acct. There are a couple of clips on there.

    Sounds like you have a great attitude towards this, and from everything I've seen, you run a great event. I hope to make it out, maybe next year.

    Yeah! Hey, I'm trying to stir up interest in a run out to Lake Elsinore next Saturday, the 30th, for a car cruise they have there. We'd be heading there from opposite sides of the Ortega Hwy, but it'd be cool to meet up with you there in Elsinore.

  10. Pufff,
    Well I made it to the Hill Climb only to lose my Hyd. clutch as I pulled in to the hotel parking garage on Thursday night after attending the Delux speed shop party. I did spend Friday at the event and Sat. morning until around 11:30 then went back to the hotel to wait on my parts to arrive so I could repair my car. They were to get there around 1:30. Well they never came until 5:30 so I missed the whole after noon's events. But I did get the car patched together enough to make it back to Nebraska.
    Sorry I never got to meet you as I was looking forward to meeting up with you. Guess I will have to wait until the dirt drags next June.
    See ya on the hamb.

    We drove over in the rain & snow, pulled in about 08:15 Saturday and stayed until 17:30. Saw a lot of friends there, but the only HAMBer's that I recognized were, Nick, Grady, Rod, & Binger. I knew you were coming but didn't see you. I'M sure there were a lot of Hamb guys there, I was thinking it would be kind of nice if the HAMB guys had a HAMB pin to put on there hat, shirt, or jacket during the hot rod events.
    Lord willing I'll be at the next Dirt Drags. See ya there.
    Zane.

    Thanks for the great pics !
    Man, What a trip to remember! Such a great event! Hats off to Nick & Amy and their crew! It was one of the best events we've been to! So we'll organized too!
    It was a long trip for us from Buffalo NY, but we will be back! My newlywed wife and I had so much fun on our honeymoon with our "11B" 1931 Roadster! This was the debut of the car! Now I have the bug to hop it up more! So many cool bangers! We even won the "Bitchin' Banger" award! Didn't expect that!
    Super Bummed we missed the reliability run... Got in late Thursday night and Just couldn't get the car to run right to dial it in Friday morning for the trip. Had lots of tuning to do, and fixings things that broke on the trailer! Haha Gives us a reason to come back! Was great meeting so many new people and HAMBer's!

    I agree that it would be easier to identify hambers. I meet people and get names and faces confused. You meet so many people at an event like this it’s hard to keep it all straight. I try. Haha.

    Thanks to all that came along. I'm just back from other wanderings and have internet again...
    Thought that I'd throw a few more photos on and encourage anyone that is bent this way to come participate in this event. I like it because it is about driving and hanging with some, fun and talented folks. IMG_20170916_121524116.jpg
