    Hey RS,
    Nice posts with great information. It is not a contest as to how many photos people can copy off of a website. There has to be some information about the car, owner, place to keep the history in perspective. A single post with information will show how hot rod history was when it was, keeping within the HAMB rules.
    Sure, with access to the internet, photos are abundant, but so is a search engine with plenty of information. At least there is some order and facts to back up a photo. No need to post 10 copied photos that we have seen on other websites. Accuracy on one post is much better than a zillion posts that have no information. If you have your own photos, better yet.

    Jnaki
    Rooman is correct in pointing out an important fact that it is quality, not quantity, then add in photo credit and information for a great single post.

    Be an informed person that posts on the HAMB with photos that have vital information for all of us to enjoy. On some other sites, the comments are such that the HAMB does not get accurate information, but is a place that throws stuff on the forums just to post stuff. That is not good.

    However much your involvement is within the HAMB/Hot Rod community, it can be better with more accuracy and a better representation of our history.

    Hello,
    Another thread to clean up regarding factual information in single posts is the Vintage Photo threads. Rather than 10 posts that have no correlation to each other, why can't posters put up more information on the single post that shows a particular interesting photo. Then the vintage thread as well as other threads will get the idea that posting multiple images, just because they are online, is not the way to portray the title of the thread. More information on a single photo is much more enjoyable and can spark other memories of our collective history.

    You're taking this shit way to seriously. Loudbang is nice enough to take time out of his day to post a ton of cool photos for us goons to look at, and I really appreciate his effort. Let's not give him a reason to stop. If sometimes we end up looking at the same cool photos a week later, so what? They're still cool photos, just enjoy them again. Lighten up, man.

    Loud bang,Don't give up!You are much appreciated by many. You are one of the bright spots left on the hamb.If one goes back to the beginning of this thread,The original poster put up a picture with no description,and suggested you do the same.I know you try to give credit where credit is due.There are hundreds on here that just appreciate what you do.It is great to have exact history.But it wasn't required by the OP..

  14. Bob Sullivan's Pandemonium Barracuda. A buncha stock Plymouth with the engine from his fuel dragster.
    Note his racing a dragster here, not class for match racers ( funny cars ) then, if you ran nitro you likely were in CC/Fuel Dragster!
    I'm thinking this was Indy 65 perhaps?

    Hey Gary,
    This photo is of the original Sidewinder by Paul Nicolini and Joe Maillard from Long Beach. It was one of our favorites as it was at Lions almost every week. It won a lot of races, too.
    The Magwinder is a later version. As beautiful as it was, it did not run as well as this original Sidewinder.
    Jnaki
    Someone posted a photo of the Magwinder in some post here on the HAMB without info a long time ago.

  16. Yeow! THIS is why funny cars became so popular! Tire smoking, ill handling loud nitro burning "stockers"!
    A FUN TIME!!

  17. I think this is Garlits in the ill fated red 66 car. Don't know for sure who it is, but it's the March Meet and it's outta shape!

  18. Dragster veteran and champ Jack Chrisman fielded this Comet "roadster" in 1966 as part of the Comet team. The car was super strong, ran 180's which was mind blowing then! It spawned the topless funny car craze, but it's performance was due more to Chrisman than the lack of top. The car burned to the ground, was replaced by a regular Comet body.
    A world beater as were all the factory Comets.

  21. An example of the topless craze!
    Note the gigantic technical advancement from this 65 Dodge, to the Chrisman Comet. In ONE year1
    Lots of too heavy older cars saved some pounds by lopping off the roof!

    Most of the folks on this board are not professional writers, and certainly no one is getting any compensation for posting here. Most of those who post photos on these threads are just gearheads taking time out of their day to share cool stuff with us, I appreciate their efforts. It's great when someone can post information about the photo, but if they don't have time to do that , or there is no information available, so be it. If something is occasionally repeated, so be it. I would rather see a cool image posted here without a caption than not see it at all.

    If someone offers to share some cookies, should we criticize them for not offering milk to go with them? Bottom line is that people are using their time to share cool stuff with all of us. Let's appreciate that.

    I very seldom say anything here but I to want to see people like loudbang continue posting items, frankly if it doesn't contain information I have the ability to do a little research and learn what I want.
    Thanks to all that find stuff and Post It for everyone else...
     
  27. I agree with Gary. Lets not ruin this thread with drama. He's right. As good as this thread is, Ryan doesn't like drama, and he will close it. That would be a huge loss for all of us.

    Yes, this is the Garlits short-lived red digger. Has a few mechanical issues at the Bakersfield meet. The photographer in the blue jacket is Forrest Bond. I took this shot from the stands.
