    Just had a long discussion with my uncle this past weekend at the Frog Follies about how his older generation needs to help inspire my younger generation (I'm 30) to continue the spirit of hot/street rodding. Actually, we talk about it constantly. Well this is it. 100%. And just for the record, it's entirely because of my uncle's generosity that I ever caught the bug. He never gave me a car, but he sold me one for cheap and has donated countless hours teaching me how to weld, clean out a grungy gas tank, run brake lines, etc. Not to mention being on-call with me always and never seeming bothered by my silly questions. You old, fat, white-bearded, chubby-fingered fellows sure have somehow kept alive a beautiful spirit of giving and friendliness that you share with each other, and I honestly hope inspires us even more than the love for cars. Well, maybe both at the same time. I don't want pre-war to die just yet. :)

    Great start to my morning to stumble across this. And spot-on about true charity! Jake, be inspired my man. "And let us not grow weary of doing good..."

    I am happy it was a tough decision. It seems like we rag on younger generation as being loads (much like they ragged on us years ago) so its good to know there are a lot of good deserving younger folks. Way to go!! And a note to @Jake_Lancer : inliners international........

    These are some of the pics from getting the car yesterday. I'll upload some video when I get to a better area. Thanks to @unclescooby and to @HAMBANDY s family and to all others involved with making this happen for Jake. We have a hell of a run ahead of us to get back to St Louis , but it will be fun!!!

    Heartwarming? Yes. Reassuring? Profoundly. I'm sure there were newly joined HAMBERS that doubted at first...
    By the third post, I was 'hooked'. Just amazing.
    But 'surprised'? Not really...but I was concerned, as I hadn't read previously about Uncle Scooby's wife being ill...
    'Not surprised' by Uncle Scooby's offer, however. He's a stand up guy, just from posts/comments here on the HAMB, and I hope someday to shake his hand.
    Very pleased to read the outcome here, just praying with all of you for Scooby and his wife.
    Jake...Congrats! You have some great folks with you, so will anxiously await your posts here.
    Gosh, I love this place!
  9. I'm speechless.....kudos to all involved! Unclescooby...get on with helping your partner and best friend.

    Unclescooby, take care of your wife and get her well! I'm impressed how a common bond can bring total strangers together for a cause. Jake is a very worthy recipient and I look forward to seeing the progress. Please keep us posted as your wife kicks cancer's ass!

    The Hamb and the people who make up the Hamb never cease to amaze me. As a group this has to be one of the best bunch of people around in this troubled world we live in. Unclescooby, hats off to you, and I hope your wife gets better. Brian

    Great thread, great story, great people involved, and a neat car to start with for a first timer build. Also great road trip pics from Clean Cut Creations and great that you were able to use the trip to also deliver some relief items. All around great.

    My wife's actual first name is Shamrock so I find this picture particularly cool. :)

  21. Wow, this sure turned out great.
    Like everyone here, I'm now keen to see how the car turns out, so will be looking out for the build thread.
    Scoob, how cool was the Shamrock pic, and it also being your wife's first name? Its a very nice name, and I sure wish for Shamrocks health to improve, as your generosity has improved people's here faith in humanity.
