    Be deaths doorstep, by littleman, or maybe the atomic punk by plowboy. Both of these cars helped to mold my way of building cars and my way of looking at projects.

  2. You mean finished ones?

    Brian Bass projects...I'd love to see more finished...I guess the red roadster is:)
    Casny's cars.
    The 39 Guy's blue coupe (and current convert sedan project)
    Anderson's T.
    Paul's T.
    There are others, but I'm blank right now.:rolleyes:

    To me, the build going on by @CadMad is truly amazing.
    That Packard is one stunning piece of metal working and engineering !

  4. Good question, but for me, one is in your shop! I love that coupe with the harvester nose. It is not anything I could build, but has a metric tonne of style and innovation.

    Years ago Rolf built a really nice coupe, ironically named the "Rolf Coupe". I tried to find a picture, but unfortunately all I could find were red x's. That car is memorable to me.

    If anyone saved a photo or two from Rolf's build, post 'em up.

    My favorites are all the era thst @Rocky put the 33 pickup on the road, @NoSurf and @hiboy32 build coupes out of garbage and out a million miles on them. Lots of stuff from around then.

    @Malcolm and @jho roadstwr and coupe builds and if we are talking Omaha @oldsboy t sedan are all above the bar memorable builds that continue to be changed and have miles stacked up on them.

    I could pick a top five favorite from every couple years there’s so much good stuff. Anyone saying people aren’t building on the hamb simply aren’t putting in the time to click on great threads with stupid names lmao

  12. The Rocky33 of course. I was lucky enough to own it for a few months before selling it to get on with my touring build. I didn't even have a damn garage when I was doing all of this!

    The Rolf Coupe is one that came to mind for me, also. When I joined the HAMB, I recall reading his build thread(s) and was very impressed with his work and attention to detail.

    I bought the car that became my favorite build. Love the stuff that Junior Kelly and @Clark were doing in the early 2000's.
    But my all time favorite build is summed up in this photo.

    This is great. I just look up whatever a bunch of you guys like and look them up. By the way, I really like CadMad's Packard build and am waiting for updates.

    Larry’s 32 is certainly hitting a lick…killer ride.
  29. My all-time favs? Easy...

    Finished cars...

    1951 Kaiser Drag'n build | The H.A.M.B. ( Mind-boggling for a first-time home build!

    40 Convert project | The H.A.M.B. ( My second favorite '40 Ford, behind only the Matador... and not by much.

    Projects - 1957 Chrysler Mild Custom | The H.A.M.B. ( Gotta love these land yachts!

    Futurian | The H.A.M.B. ( Mark's perfect channeling of the spirit of Ed Roth.

    In-progress projects...

    Cadmad's Packard is another one I always check out. Racer X's nitro Chrysler, anything Jim Sibley is building, Jeff Norwell's '57 Ford projects, the list could go on and on.
