    OK - since there have been other recent posts about HAMB history - I thought I would post some....

    My fellow Moderator / Buddy / Rocky sent me a picture of my Original Coupe that I had when I signed up on the HAMB 19 years ago. ( # 282 )

    Rocky turned me on to the HAMB, was influential on chatting with Ryan about me being a Moderator.
    Easy going - I am..... I guess.

    The car that I had that started it all for me on the HAMB.

    THE CornCobCoupe - 28 Dodge.
    I learned the body was found in a Corn Cob Crib some time before I got it - just the body and frame from the firewall back.

    My friend Jay - built /did all the fab / suspension.
    Together I observed - taught me some about welding / fab.
    Some things I can do - some I haven't tackled yet.
    Never too old to learn. Had a great time.

    Thus my HAMB name - my avatar is back to it's history.
    The only picture I have of it thanks to my Buddy Rock.

    I have no idea where it is now.
    I wouldn't mind buying it back if the price is right.

    So - show your original car when you signed up - still have it or not ?
    Post em'

    I signed up in 2006. The car I had at the time was my old '62 Ford Galaxie. This photo is from our first trip to the Lonestar Roundup, that same year --

  12. Joined up in 2007, had the '40 then, in fact I've had it since 1990. Wow, 30 years I've owned it. Seems like just yesterday. I've spoken with 3 previous owners going back to the late 60's. Where does time go?! I thought growing old would take longer!:rolleyes: IMG_0287-vi.jpg 2013-10-22 13.06.45.jpg DSC07017.JPG IMG_7195 (Large).JPG

    I joined March of 2009, I had this '40, hence my HAMB name. I sold it several months ago (word to newbees, use a name not tied into your present car).

    I didn't have a running car when I joined, so no matching screen name.

    I wonder if Stinky the Bum will post a pic of his ol' piece of cardboard?

  23. I joined in April of 2006 when my hot rod looked like this.... image.jpeg
    Trying to figure out how to build a Hotrod is what led me to the HAMB. I think I was buying parts at a swap meet and someone asked if I was on the HAMB and I think I said "what's that??"


    It took me until 2011 to get it on the road and it's still not technically finished but it has taken me a lot of places and allowed me to meet some lifelong friends along the way!

    Joined 2011 when I bought my truck 36 ford. Found the site while trying to learn all I could about it.

    Bought the truck and had nowhere close to store it so it went to the machine shed at Grandma's farm and there it sat until about a month into quarantine. When I finally drug it home ready to start working on it. FF a couple more months and now I'm getting transfered to TX for work so work will have to wait a little while longer. But it's making the trip with us and then I won't have any more excuses but to actually do something with it.

    When we parked it at the farm. Complete with Photobucket stamp lol

    And at the shop where it site right now. Hasn't changed much.

  26. Back in 2002 my first post was a brake question, luckily it flew under the radar and i avoided the hazing. Still driving the Model A some 18 years later.
    Now that my shakedown run is over, it's finally getting some shiny paint one piece at a time.

    I was flt-blk before it was uncool

    I joined in 2009 after lurking for a couple of years after a friend told me he saw a pic of my'37 on the site. I still have the '37 looks much the same. Here is a shot from '93.
