    Justin, are you going to Mark G's funeral today? Didn't know if you knew Mark who had Eternal Image in Phxville. I knew Mark for a long time ever since he start out at Tracy's shop in Pottstown. Sorry to sidetrack the thread.

    Like what you're doing for a fellow HAMBer halfway across the country.

    Listen to this man!!!

    Sent you a PM on the O/T stuff man. Ive never met or spoken to Jason, just looking to help out, i'm sure any of us would like the same support in the situation. This hobby has had a great history of comraderie and a family like aspect to it that's why i love it so much.
     
  3. great idea.......commend you on such a noble deed.....
     
  4. just a thought to everyone who has said they are too far away.. what about option number 2 and a picture in the mail and then a drawing and picture back.

    thanks man that's what i was thinking when i put it up, for those that are too far away or don't like tattoos, #2 would suit to help.

    Maybe STRCOMP's bid scared them away :D

    just kidding guys, lets see what we can do to help Jason out. Like a lot of guys here i don't know Jason, i've never met him, spoken to him, emailed him... but a rodder in need is all it takes. I'm sure we would all like the same support and help wherever we could get it.

    Come on guys i know it's been a tough year, or 3, but lets try to make a difference!!! The rendering would be a great gift, use it in your shop, personal garage, hang it above your toilet!!!

    You're forcing my hand here fellas for all you guys holding out haha but i'll do one more thing to try and entice you guys to bid up on either of these.... In addition to the auction items i'm going show some love and fork over out of pocket an alliance membership for the winners, BOTH of them AND myself!!!! If you're already an alliance member i will simply donate the cost to the HAMB!

    THAT'S 3 MORE ALLIANCE MEMBERSHIPS GUYS AN EXTRA $150 FOR THE HAMB straight from me to show my appreciation for this community on top of what we can do together for Jason!!!

    ^^^^ That's awesome inkmunky. You are being quite generous, and it inspires me to be a bit more generous even though I unfortunetly don't have alot to give. I'm outbidding myself to $300 for #1.

    I'll go $300 for the tat

    2-3 hours for that kind of coverage is moving along pretty fast for that kind of detail work..including cutting the lines.Your work looks great though.
    I could use a little work work below the elbow.

  22. Mr inkmunky,
    Your thread has been an aspiration that will not go unnoticed.
    We are doing to 2 shows this weekend, the Chicago World Of Wheels and the Race & Performance Expo in St Charles IL.
    We will have pictures of Jason's lose and a collection box for donations that will go to you to give him.
    I also do not know Jason but feel his grief and loss.
    Also there is an organization in town that raises money for injured race car drivers that fall on hard times. We are going to start the same type of foundation that does the same thing for a fallen comrade in the Hot Rod World. Information on this will come out in the next couple of months.
    As you can see by the other posts that are trying to raise money for a fallen brother this could have some WINGS!
    LETS KEEP A STICKY ON THIS TILL MONDAY PLEASE!
    Thanks, Bernie

    You guys are the kind of guys that make this all possible. The HAMB truly is a big family, it's an indescribable feeling to know that if anyone here breaks down the HAMB will come to the rescue, if tragedy strikes we can count on people we've never met, and if we flat out just need some help or a good laugh we always have a place to congregate.

    Ryan and all the moderators, a special thanks goes out to you guys for making this all happen everyday. I hope knowing that your midnight toiling to keep this place going really does make a difference for thousands of people all over the world.
