Year # 4, great weather, more cars, more people, more friends...perfect! Let me start by saying I COULD NOT do the show without several HAMBers that donate their time to make several parts of the show worry free for me. One is Lulabelle (and Mrs. Lulabelle) and two is Skate Fink. They man their posts like a couple of maniacs ALL day long. They are the best and I cant thank them enough. Also Johnny Long Hair and the Mrs.,Mrs. Bates, Nappy (hope you fell better), Sumo, the voice of the Showdown, Curt Six for the art year after year, ol' scratch, also my buddies Scott K and his wife April, Jerry Duncan for flaggin', and the big man J.P. also unshakable at his post. And of course my idea bouncin' buddy Clark (I'm glad you got to mud dive). We had over a thousand people, more than three hundred cars, great bands, great vendors, no problems with track time, and now a boat load of money for the museum and our local fire company. I also got to thank all the HAMBers that traveled such a long way for our little show, TX, MI, OH, NY, VA, MD, NJ, PA, WI. Hoo da thunk it?...just too cool. We've met so many great friends because of this board, show and car thing. It still makes me smile. A Jalopy Showdown auction will follow shortly.
