I've read the Hamb almost daily since 2003 maybe earlier. I lurked for 2 years before I joined and/or posted because I took the advice of others to look, listen, learn and use the SEARCH feature.(The old flame jobs on people used to be relentless too) The Hamb has had such a huge impact on myself and the rest of the world for that matter. Here are just a handful of things off the top of my head. 1) How many cars has it saved from an untimely death to the crusher around the world? 3 hot rods and 1 dragster in my case 2) How many unfinished projects has it helped put back on the road? At least 3 for me so far and a handful more on the way. 3) How much history has it recorded that would have been lost in time? I would say more than all the automotive books written in the last ten years combined. Here is the one place where each story is on equal footing no matter who you are. 4) What about the people on the Hamb that have become friends and helped one another? Knowing HambAndy made me value everything in life. There are so many of the others in need that have been helped and even those broken down on the side of the road. (Hamb AAA) 5) How many guys have lauched their car building careers wiht the help of the Hamb? I've even written a book about hot rodding directly related to the support of my friends, Ryan, and the Hamb. I couldn't imagine a world without it and it scares me to think how things would have worked differently. Thanks, Ryan and Crew!
