    Nice, Ryan. And Jay makes it easier, with his eloquence...
    Side note: Last year when working on the magazine that almost killed me before suiciding itself, I got to "meet" some of my art heroes online, concerning a planned art segment. One of them was Dave Deal, who Pixar used to help rough out early ideas for CARS. I thought that was cool...
    Thanks for a nice read. I'm a sucker for that first-person stuff...

    Well done article on a super guy. I had never met Jay personally until last years HAMB Drags (and his dad was there too), but he was extremely helpful in getting my Falcon wagon back from Northern Cali to Missouri. He offered to let me use his garage to jack it up and check it out underneath (which I didn't feel right to impose upon him to do- but a super offer), and steered me to a good place to get a muffler tacked on in the Oakland area (straight pipes at the time- my wife woulda flown home without the muffler :cool:).
  8. Wardly is the Best!! Real proud of ya bro!
  9. When I grow up, I want to be Jay Ward

  24. And this is another reason why I admire the HAMB, here we acknowledge those before us who have lept in faith, taken a risk, followed their hearts, lived their passion, we lift them up and praise their forgotten achievements. Similarly, here's a gentleman, right here, right now, doing just as I peirs did, a different medium for sure, but a legend in the build....

    Thumbs up mate, admire what you've done, and the road your travelling, keep at it,

  26. Jay....can I have your autograph now? :D:rolleyes::D

    Cool interview Ryan, hope to see MANY more of these kinda things on here, you got a bit of a pool of talent to pick from!

    To add my 2 cents......I think the interview idea is a gem...There is so much talent here. I had never put the Jay Ward on the Cars deal together with the Billetproof dude...never met either, but it turns out to be one guy...and he`s on here for fun??....Neat stuff, Ryan....
  28. Excellent interview...even being from the same area as Jay and reading the HAMB more than my employer should know, I didn't know all those cool details.

    There are a lot of HAMBers that would be great to see interviewed.

    Mr. Ward,
    Don't you have copy to edit? There is a deadline you know. Perhaps we should keep the Safari at my place so you won't be distracted. You do have the keys don't you ?:D
