    New guy here from Pa.... been a motorhead since childhood, now, over 80 cars later, I'm 63 and enjoy the hobby more than ever. I built a mild custom 50 Olds 88 in 1970, got a good offer on it at a National Olds Club meet in 1972, and like a dumbass I sold it. Well, just recently had a chance to buy the car back. In 38 years the car only had 1690 miles put on it and currently has only 59,475 miles on the odometer. Man, I always loved this car and regretted selling it, sometimes I just sit and look at it and can't believe I have it back.... I'm sure some of you guys know this feeling. I think the Hamb is great and glad to be a part of it.

    That's a great story, not many guys find their old car. See you at the Jalopy Showdown in May?

    Ron: Really nice looking car and a great story of on finding it again.

    Welcome from the West Coast of Florida and the land of sunshine.

    I have always loved the cars from the late 40's and early 50's and I only wish I had not also sold my 51 Chevy Coupe years ago. I think the car got shipped out of the country.

    You are very lucky to have found the car again and had the chance to buy it back. I only wish I could be so lucky.

    Jimbo

  12. Hey Ron...Great Story...Welcome from Carroll County Md. It must have felt great to get an old car of yours back after all that time. Its also a similar feeling to finally get the car you've wanted for years, as I did with my 40 Coupe. Congrats
