    We have been chatting on FB about the drags and the subject came up that a lot of the old guys weren't there this year. So, we started trying to remember who all was there. Maybe, meeting up next year for a reunion....

    So, to the best of my old guy memory, I can only remember a few. I apologize if I miss you. Sound off and remind us who all was there. If you are on the list and you weren't there, let me know.

    Uh, you were chatting on FB about the HAMB? Why not just start a thread here?

  9. Just thought, can’t forget about the BFD competition with Gordini and his coupe. So add Gordini to the list.

    Sadly I have not made it to any subsequent years. I need to change that next year!

    This was the pic that epitomized the first hamb drags. They actually made a pass pulling the sign. Good times.

    I was there with my son in the studebaker wagon.
     
  22. Like 106 in the shade hot!

    The ground was to hard to dig so Tman's pit pig had to wait for year two... which ended up in a cremation.

    Raced Flattop Bob the first time my 31 Pontiac went down the track.

    What was the fastest time that year?

    I was wondering about that Sam.
     
  25. That was #2.
    There has been discussion as to weather I was at #1 or not. I am pretty sure that my first was #2.

    Anyway the great pig massacre was #2.

    on a side not @Roothawg it was '05 or '06 before I realized that the fly was not bare metal.

  26. Wasn't Atch there with Clarence?

    I made four passes with my block leaking a bit before they said not to run anymore. Watched Krupanut make lap after lap. I got more jealous each time.

    I hadn't looked at the 2003 pics for years. I just did and it was quite a trip down memory lane. It also reminded me that my flathead and nostalgia drag racing web site has been sadly neglected. And, yes, burned pig was 2004.

  30. For all the crap Tman took, and takes, he stepped up and was making us grub in that heat!
