    After almost 10 yrs of living in the South, the wife and I are making a move back to the Seattle area.. Its home for her and where my long time car buddies live.

    Have made some incredible friends while living on the east coast (here local in Charleston... but also a number in ATL and up in PA and NY).. gonna miss seeing them at various shows...

    So for those in the Seattle area (and other NW towns).. I look forward to meeting some new HAMBers and seeing some previous ones....

    House went forsale last night so now it time to get the garage cleaned and organized (that part sucks) and the Woodie prepared for its transport..

  6. Cool. My wife's from out there also. I'm from MD and met her when I was stationed out there. We were thinking about moving back a few years ago, but my wife is too happy here to leave now. We went back there in August of last year and its changed alot. There are a lot more people than there was in the mid 90s when we left.

    Look forward to making you feel "back at home", man. My address is technically Seattle, but I'm still way south, almost Burien.

    Make it out here before the "HotRodArama", in August!

  10. I'm originally from Seattle, lost a bet and ended up in Montana! I'd move back in a minute but we are tied to this dirt pile until the kid leaves for college. I'll be back every year for the Hotrodarama, catch you guys then.

    I made the move from there (lived in Monroe and worked in Bothell) a couple of years ago. Spring and summer are beautiful as you well know. I'll be thinking about you this winter! :D

  26. Ken,

    Hopefully I'll get to say goodbye at the Nats South this year. We'll miss having you around the South.

    Good luck with the move. Sounds like a good one for you & the wife.
    It's nice when good things happen to good people. Congratulations.

    Hope everything works out for you ...
    It is HOT here in South Carolina ... but I will stay here ... :)

    I was in Charleston SC Saturday, cruising around in the 32 roadster. Misplaced your cell # or I would have called ... it was great in Charleston Saturday ... 75, light breeze and cloudy. Great Roadster weather ...

    Ate some Bar-B-Que at Bessingers.
    See you at Charlotte AutoFair ... you know where my spots are ...
