    Actual hot rodding... and not a gathering of old farts for farts sake.

    My kind of event.

    Hello J,

    This story and the great photos, to me, is top notch journalism. It was easy to read, got the mood for the area, and the happiness of a grass roots, well pumpkin roots, event. It was easy to see what fun everyone had. I was locked into the story as if it were happening right now. This by far, is/was the best of your writings here on the H.A.M.B.

    The bashing around that wide open muddy field, reminded me of the times during rainy season in So Cal, that I took my Flathead 40 Ford Sedan Delivery into a large field in the Wilmington Oil fields. It was the perfect location and time period. I did my own motocross field racing with sliding, spinning and almost flipping the sedan delivery. After the second time, I realized it was my daily driver and the teenage brain came to life. Your event just looked like more fun especially with the competition.

    In our travels, my wife and I like that area of Oregon and have stayed in the general area at different times/road trips.

    Your whole participation in the event can be shown with three great photos.

    And, the closure photo was truly outstanding... yes!

    You got it made youngster. The flame could not be carried forward any better, easy to see why the Boss put you in the succession plan. Awfully cool.

    It's so neat to see someone find their calling, and make things happen, the way you have. Congrats!

    I'm roughly twice your age, but you seem to be having 10 times more fun and genuine experiences. I love reading and following your adventures, and they motivate me to keep working toward some of my own dreams. I felt what you described at the Hot Rod Hillclimb when I went in 2016, but let life get in the way of actually getting a car ready to go. Thanks for the kick in the pants, and keep doing what you are doing.

    Good on you Joey. It was not too long ago you were piecing that car together in your old, cramped garage. Now you are enjoying the hell out of it. Your story reminds me of when I finally raced my roadster at TROG. After all that work, all the late nights, welding, cutting, grinding, doing things twice (or more). Deadlines and commitments. I cried like a little kid making my first pass, it was so overwhelming. We are proud of you Joey, keep it up.

    You really captured the feeling of someone who has studied hot rods for years and is now finding a new fuller experience in them. I appreciate the humility you seem to have about your journey. What you accomplished is not easy, so many of us set idealistic goals and run out of budget, time, or ability and never make it. So cool how methodical your approach seems to be and that getting that roadster together and racing it seems to be as good or better than you even thought it would be. Old hot rods are so special and you proved it. Im already excited to see the next version if your car and the next level of adventures it takes.

    Such a great video, great photographs and wonderful writing really captured the event and, more importantly, your feelings about yourself, your friends and the experiences with your incredibly accomplished hot rod!

    And I'd just like to say that we don't realize how good we have it here.

    You guys are all too good to me. As you know, I love telling stories. That's what I do. The fact that you all read them? That's what makes this place incredible.

    Thank you everyone for the kind words on this thread—all all my other threads for that matter. It means the world to me.
    Good times in the rear view, even better ones ahead!
