    Fellow HAMBers......I come here to share the wealth of cars and parts my grandfather left me in his will. While gramps was still alive he never ever wanted me to be part or to follow the crowd but to make my own road. To my surprise none of my uncles or aunts care enough for the old I'm here to sell, learn and prevent the iron from getting melted to build some rich guy dream hotel/resort. After his passing I was/am shattered and find it real hard to sell stuff 'cause every nut and bolt has a story. A story that time cannot erase.....or maybe in hopes that time will help heal the wound I have.

    Gramps grew up in Corona, Califas and a Pachuco to the bone. He was the biggest greaser I ever knew. He did not care about the IN crowd or the nicest him it was about cruzin,build'n, being approachable and staying true. Always happy never showed his sorrows and always had sunny days. His famous words when you asked him how are you..."Fine and Dandy". Those words can be found on his tombstone.

    Amigos...I'm a average guy with average tools but with a desire to learn,share and keep this art form alive. I'm not here to ruffle any feathers. With that said....Lets keep this art form alive!!! THX.

    Time will help you. May your Grandfather RIP. I miss Aunts, Uncles, & Grandparents that I have lost. I will miss them all for the rest of my days.
    My prayers are with you.
