So....I have a couple friends that are into traditional hot rods and customs just like me. They kept talking about this website and I could never remember the name. One day one of them went to an event and said it was sponsored by the "H.A.M.B" - so I type these letters into my browser and find this ultra cool website. There's tech items, message boards for car related information, a calendar for events, and on and on........ One thing I learned from reading is that I need to do an introduction, so here goes: I've been into cars for over 22 years - I'm 36 now. I started with VW's, but always appreciated customs and hot rods. I bought my first model A when I was 19 (I still own it, not finished). It was about that time I started doing custom body work and paint. I would work on my own cars and would also do jobs for money. I did this through college, but had to slow down as I pursued my career with the fire department. I am currently trying to get back in the groove with my '52 cadillac I am building. I look forward to meeting and learning from all of you. Enclosed are photos of some of my past and present projects.... sorry, I had some technical difficulties with the pictures so they aren't very clear - I'll refine my technique later.
