    I’m 36 which is about half of the average age that posts on the HAMB. Anyone with a rust free 32-40 ford they want to sell me cheap to keep the hobby alive let me know. Thanks

    80 closing in on 81 but 18 as Bob B says when in my hot rod all the years roll away along with the miles just traded my 32 3 Window for a 40 Ford Coupe so I would have enough trunk space to carry my electric mobility scotter

  20. Dana, I have always liked your car but the young lady seated behind the wheel does add a little more to the visual appearance. :) HRP

    I'm 36 and have only had H.A.M.B. Friendly vehicles for 2 years but have been interested in hotrods since my teens . As for the hobby dyeing out is mostly due to cost and lack of parts/cars and people willing to part with them how many people have yards full of stuff that is just rotting away and another big one is people with knowledge who aren't willing to share it. I have contemplated moving my cars on because I don't have the knowledge or come from a background where I have friends or family members that have the knowledge that I need but I am willing to learn. A lot of people bellow retirement age don't have spare cash to blow on cars unless they are in there teens and then they don't have enough for building a car that costs tens of thousands

    Same age as my Nomad! After three heart attacks and a brain bleed, I am happy to still be on this side of the grass, having fun, as usual!

    There is only one of him and lots of us so it is going to be hard to skewer the average. I am 67.
