    Caddy quarters.. Mm, yeah. :cool: Did it take you a while to get used to the three on the tree set-up?

    Dude. I didn't know that was you! I really need to start paying more attention on here. I'm slacking off.

    You got a great truck. I love that truck.. But the Chevy coupe is sexy too. It'll be nice seeing it scoot around town!

    "Did it take you a while to get used to the three on the tree set-up?"

    I actually grew up driving a set up like this....Matt did an excellent job retaining all the traditional vibes to the car.... that's why I loved it so much!!

    Thanks, Larry!

    I figured if you're going to be sitting there behind the monitor, I could at least provide you with some exercise. Keep you in shape, ya know? :) I've got some more exercising for you to do this afternoon.

    Great thread on your trip, Matt. Your photos are really good!

    It was really nice to meet you, and I do appreciate the compliments...although I'm still not sure I agree with what you told me at the show. :)

    Have you looked into a "Mophie"? I got one for long road trips where I can't charge my phone often enough. They work really well...just clips onto the phone like a protective case/cover.

  9. It was great meeting you Friday morning and seeing you at the ASS party Saturday night! Awesome job on the event coverage

    Haha. Quit trying to be so modest. ;) You do incredible work. I'll have to look into the "Mophie." I carry a charger with me and charge my phone in my DD whenever I can but that's sometimes not enough.. Thanks for the heads up, Brian.

    Thanks! Great meeting you at the BBQ place.

    No problem, dude.

    Wow, man. Thanks a ton for for posting all those photos. I was banging my head against the wall all weekend at work since I didn't make it back up this year. This makes up for it a little bit.

    Man I apologize, I wish I would have had more time to chat/text at the gas station. I was the last group to roll in (late) and I know we were trying to get out of there. It was nice to meet you and next time you are available come hang out with us! Great pics by the way!

    After this year I have decided to let my '58 impala bumpers go for sure. I have a cherry set! Let me know if you are interested!

    Thanks for the kind words and enjoying the pictures, guys!

    It still has a long ways to go before I can even drive it. I'm already being pressured by some friends on here to get it out there next year. I don't know.. We'll see. :)

    No problem at all, dude. It was nice meeting you at the gas station. Your truck is phenomenal.

    Nice meeting you as well! Hope you make it back okay.. Your Ranchero is killer!

    Ha. If I weren't deaf and I loved my iPhone that much, I would have called you instead. ;):rolleyes:

    Awesome event coverage. Thanks for sharing this with those of us who couldn't be there. Event-coverage threads are what keep my enthusiasm for the hobby going.
     
  26. Nah man. Pins are for hipsters. :p

    My 2011 Alliance tag got a little fancy...

    This image on a plaque:

    [​IMG]

    With my Alliance tag screwed on beneath it with little brass screws.

    My 2012 Alliance tag... I think I'm going to rivet it to a small steel plate and make it a belt buckle. :D

    HAMB belt buckles are what we really need!


    Love the pics by the way! Thanks for sharing for those of us who can't make it.

    Wow, had no idea about that, I will have to take a look. I have decided to make custom bumpers, since your new ride already has them. Hit me up and let me know. These things are nice!
