    Well long before i got a computer Flat Oz told me about the HAMB. When i finally was given a computer the first site i looked at was the HAMB. I Have meet some very nice people here and learned a lot. Hope i have helped some and also have nearly completed some of my magazine collections. I wont be leaving any time soon. So you can blame Flat Oz for me and in turn me for Hemi 35 and US Merc Ute, both great additions to this site. Thank you every one.

    The HAMB talked about on a lot of old rod forums, I'm not sure which got me linked. Seems to be a lot of good and knowledgable people here for the most part.

    I don't think my '58 is really a HAMB qualifier, but I do pick a vew things up here and hope to help a little once in a while.

    "Primered Forever" told me about it.....and told me about it........and told me about it :) ! So I lurked at the site for a while and kinda' liked what I saw. Then I attended the H.A.M.B. Drags last August, and I REALLY liked what I saw !!!
    I like the traditional hot rods (see my avatar) and 50's / 60's cars and trucks. I read SEVERAL threads each night - they have inspired me to re-start my '64 Chevy truck project. I also learn tons from the projects and subjects discussed here. Plus, I LOVE the threads that show: AWB cars, trophy girls of the past, famous hot rods, the GNRS pics, and Stingray bikes that we owned; everything from the 60's that I grew up with.
    Thanks, H.A.M.B. boards !!!!!

    I found the site googling step vans. The step van thread was cool, and I will need to pick some brains while I fix up my truck. This seemed like the place.[​IMG]

    I picked up an issue of ol skool rodz and started going to their forum. I kept getting put off by the attitude over there and they all kept mentioning the "other site". I checked it out and thus joined the hamb.
  18. I kept hearing about this site being bashed on ratrod sites about this site bashing ratrod sites:eek:

    I couldn't help but chase the drama!:D

    can't we all just get along.......................:rolleyes:

    At the 2009 Leadsled Spectacular in Salina. Then rode our scooters to the HAMB drags @ Mokan. Hooked then for sure. I've had lots of good advice on my 52 Chevy, found some parts and made a couple friends. Cool forum.

    I found this place years ago when it was a totally different format, I'm thinking maybe 7 years ago or so, im not sure. Lurked a little bit and read some stuff, I had a mustang at the time and didn't really know much about this stuff. Went die hard hot rod again around 5 years ago and haven't looked back. Got a job at a hot rod shop and heard them mention the HAMB, checked it out, joined and hit the alliance membership almost immediatly. Really liked what I saw. (and I did read the "read this first part", lol). I've been spreading the word to a bunch of young guys my age trying to get them to check this place out. Trying to "spread the word" if you know what I mean.

    Found it by "Googleing" something about a year ago. Kinda lurked until December then joined. The board has given me many hours of interesting subjects. And even at my OLD age I learn something new each day. Thanks for the board.

    I was lurking on a rat rod site when there where some people bitching about the HAMB, I kept reading about how this site is traditional hot rods and don't accept much else. Needless to say that's all I needed to come find the light, and I don't think I'm leaving any time soon!

    Me through lurking & the which I used to read.
    I have a street rod which is more like a restro-rod but I'm trying. I am amazed how people here can craft old stuff and sometimes just turn junk into a something. That just goes beyond recycling. I thought I was doing good with 20th century junk but some people here well they're more than creative or resourcefull. I'm looking for the right vehicle to make a HAMB friendly one for my stable.

    You guys rule here plain & simple.

    I was on welding web and saw the guy who converted his Harbor freight bead roller to the "antique version "'ve seen it , the green one with the model A steering wheel ..
  29. 51 Mercules stopped by & mentioned there was a thread asking about the air cylinders my Dad & Uncle were running on his Chop Top 64 Rivi, in '67. So I checked out the "lowrider" thread, and posted the pics they were asking about.. an I been here ever since. I find it motivating to post build pics on my 59 elky, too. Not into catagories, either. I like "Hot Rods".. an we all know vague those lines are now.
