Would be nice to learn how many of you are out their.
She's the real deal.
@Christie comes to mind but there are others as well. Some you don't are know are female based on their screen name. And don't forget the women who are right there in the garage with their husbands, boy friends, etc. who are everything from just supportive with encouragement/suggestions, $$ or all the way to cutting, grinding, prepping etc.
My old lady is building her own truck, she's learning everyday, and she's been bitten by the upholstery bug. Her plan is to be in the upholstery business 2 years from now. She's a gearhead in every way
We have had several real deal hot rod gal's on the hamb in the past, Denise (hotrodladycrusr) Is the first that comes to mind, she didn't do all the work herself but she drove Big Olds all over the country, she drove that old car topless in some pretty bad weather. HRP
Then there is Megan ( ChevyGirlRox) seen ridding shot gun with Denise a lot, there are many more that have participated at one time or another, many of the ladies of the hamb ,especially Megan & Denise have gone on to work in the automotive field, Denise is or was working for Autoweek. HRP
There was a social group with more than 200 members called the Ladys of the Hamb, I don't know how active it is now. HRP
Gee Don^^^, you seem to know all the girls....
Someone called me bisnatch the other day. Does that count?
That’s like winning the lottery , right there.
Cudachick out of Tennessee.
Guess I'll be the one to put @ladyhrp in the club.
How about @Bad55Chick? She was building a cool 55 Chevy truck. Haven't seen her for a while.
I apologize for anything I might have said.
Was, Autoweek closed up a few months back, I now get Road & Track to use up the Autoweek subscription (not my choice). Denise was on here a few weeks ago - She said that it was a good time for her to retire.
What happened to the young lady building the turquoise Edsel? I cant recall her name...
CRS is setting in.....

We got this for my fiance this past August. She's not a builder, but I am showing her how to make the changes that she wants so as to make it her own. 56 Ford Customline with '79 351 Windsor and C6 auto. So far she picked the chrome wheels and we replaced the radiator. She also wanted factory fender skirts so a friend gave us a set. One Off Rod and Custom will be painting them to match the pink color. She also wants a set of radial wide whites. Will probably lower it a couple inches too.
the day we brought it home.
Brenda loves hot rods and has helped me on every car I have built in one way or another, she played a huge part in building the Ranch Wagon which is her car and although she didn't do any of the welding she did help turn wrenches, helped sand blast parts in the blasting cabinet, designed the interior and helped with the buffing and waxing. HRP
Marcia thanks for taking the time to post. Keep us updated on your racer.
A bit of a rarity nowadays, I am more than a little jealous of you Danny.
I have to call a younger friend over for “heavy lifting” at times. He always tells me “you need to put your purse in it”
I guess I qualify
Uh Oh...I just realized that I might qualify
I'm retired and Bonnie is still working...so I do all the housework... laundry, vacuuming, mopping , dusting, cooking, dishes, grocery shopping etc. I have a pony-tail and am old enough (and fat enough) to have moobs.
What the fucks happening to me
