The Jalopy Journal
Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by krooser, Jan 28, 2009.
A lot of mention of this place on Oldminibikes.com as well.
Actually I found it in passing conversation on other site. Still here, still reading, still learning. Can't remember what the other site was though. Guess that tells you something, doesn't it? Got a '53 Canadian Pontiac/Chev Chieftan/Belair now. Trying to rebuild her but can't decipher VIN tag. Its all a learning curve. And I really like curves.
a hot rod Pal of mine called the tinmann told me about it
I went to the good guys carshow at the race track in ft. worthand saw allof these kool cars with hamb dash plates on them and just knew it was kool.so I checked out the sight ,mostly trolling but Iplan on becoming an alliance member and posting some tech items as well.too many projects¬ enough time,you cant save them all?OR CAN YOU!!
Seems that about every third or fourth google search I did lead me to some thread on the HAMB. I then bookmarked the site and realized I had found my people and joined.
like most others , google . i forget what info i was searching for , but it showed a link on here . been lurking ever since . i love old cars , but make my living on new ones .
Googled Christmas Ham and this place popped up !! You gotta wonder ?? >>>>.
On google, looking for an old mik truck or delivery van.
I have been a long time member of the 32-53 flathead site, under the ID "RESTORODDER" . They are always referring to this site. I always had trouble following this site,Too much chit chat, and the threads move so fast I can't keep up. However my newest car has a 392 Hemi and pushbutton Torqueflite, I can't ask the flatheaders for help with that.I have three cars, all "old school",but Finished.
Found my way here from chevytalk , like alot of you was lurking now cant shake it off...
Looking for sites about the MOPAR Poly engines. I love all the old boat anchors. Y-block Fords, Murcury, MEL, early Olds, Caddy, Pontiac, Packard, Hudson and Mother MOPAR. Especially the forgotten performance models like the one off NASCAR Specials.
i found the site thru a buddy of mine who builds rods and customs.he does awsome metal work.(bonifyd customs in fairborne,oh) i needed some parts and he said to look on the hamb.i dont post much unless i cant find a post to answer my question. i just mainly search around and try to suck up knowledge.
Got a tickle from the volksrods site, now its practically a 2nd job, but with better coffee
Couldn't find shit for information on my Cadillac till I found this site... Then I did something real stupid. I looked in the classifieds, and been stuck ever since.
It is all LOBUCROD'S fault!!! I can blame his sorry ass for subjecting me to such brain punishment.
There is nothing better than the HAMB!!!
Larry T. and Google..and now its become an addiction. I can't finish the car cause I'm on here alot. But I have learned so much.
I saw a guy a few years ago wearing a H.A.M.B. shirt at a Turlock swap meet and thought that i should check it out! Haven't left since!
Lookin for inspiration on my 59 Plymouth and found it while surfing. I plan to stay as long as it's here.
I suppose the draw was reading the exploits...err wisdom of; Royalshifter, Breeder, Plowboy and Squirrel!
A motley crew of Unusual suspects.
googled "nailhead generator bracket" or something. right away, got some great advice and laughed my ass off a few times as well. man, some of you dust-farters can be ruthless...
i plan on staying around.
the hamb was like a calling, this place is pretty inspiring...i just came across it one day looking for hot rod ideas.
I was introduced to it from people at a chevy truck site. a lot of good ideas and what not going on in here.
Vintage Sprint Car Pic thread.
A friend of mine passed it along to me. It was actually the Jalopy Journal as we both have older bikes, and then I got onto the HAMB from there.
I heard about it from my ma, and so I been readin stuff on here since I was about 12 or sumtin. Its just a wonderful place with more information than you could throw a book at, literally. I've learned more from here than I have anywhere else.
I was edjumacating myself on old cars by doing searches on Google. Links to the HAMB kept coming up and I thought, "WTF is that place?" I may have seen it mentioned in either Street Rodder or R&C. I signed up last year and have been slowly reeled in over the past few months. It's kind of evil how this places sneaks up on you and the next thing you know you're addicted. So many knowledgeable people here and yes, I am sticking around.
started reading in '05 thanks to a tip from a few locals, signed up in '07
A couple of guys that come into the machine shop where I work told me about the H.A.M.B. drags. I've been into old cars forever, because of my fathers love for them. So I went to the drags and I was hooked. I joined then got a chance to run my '48 Plymouth against my brothers '33 Plymouth, both stockers that our Dad left to us, my Dad was smilin' in heaven I'll bet. Now my brother has joined and so it goes.
been lurking for a bit found the site through a friend, really should post more but don't have much to offer being a dumbass and all
I found it surfing for hotrod stuff a few years ago and joined
