Just kidding! So now that the fun is over... I was referred to HAMB by a fellow member after asking for PIX of a '50 fleetline chevy being chopped. He said this forum rocked. After surfing it for a while I found out he wernt fibbin'. AWESOME! I'm from Tejas. Son of a Hot Roddin' Farmer who taught me to saw, weld, hammer, and cuss just about anything metal. If we weren't on a tractor (glamorous i know) we were in the shed building or fixin something. I was always amazed how that man could (and still can) build anything from our metal scrap heap or fix darn near anything with the smallest crescent wrench known to man that he kept in his pocket (along with his knife of course). So anyway, from the day he showed me the 2 pix he had of his '55 chevy convert. with a 283 and 3 dueces I was hooked! So now it is many years later and I am an addict... sometimes I think there is something wrong with me.... but then I remember that I like that! I'll try to help everyone on the board that I can and you can rest assured I will ask a lot of questions! BTW, I ain't usually long winded... I'm just excited about the prospects here! Let the beatings begin!
