    ...Surprised nobody noticed that it "marked it's territory" in this photo, as any true Hot Rod would :D.....or as a friend corrected me [FONT=Verdana,Arial,Helvetica]"it's not marking it's territory so much as it's marking it's place in history"[/FONT]

    That's awesome, Clayton. Dang, I was just there last month - I would've blown a gasket if I'd seen it there.
    So don't get too big for your britches and be holding your nose in the air at Voodoo, okay? Yeah, we know you wouldn't.

    Great stuff thanks. There was lots of out-of-the-box thinking, not enough of which is done much these days by some --good going.

    Ryan's article was fantastic! As several fellow HAMBers put it, he nailed it to a "T" with write up :D

    I have a copy hanging at work and in my garage!

    I love thinking "outside the box" on every car I build, to make every one of them unique, different and something new.

    That was my entire focus: Build a traditional T "gowjob" that is a lil' different as far as T's go....something that makes you do a double-take and think "what in the world....?"

    ...and most importantly, something to just drive and have fun with :D

    yup, that's what i do. make dreams come true!!! i must say, it's some serious HAMBer trust from people like Clayton and Bobby Green to let us borrow their cars for a few months, but it's going to be a great show. i hope to see all of you Nor Cal kids there.

I'm just honored that you guys wanted my ol' T for your exhibit..and that it will sitting next to the "Old Crow" and the Bishop/Tardell A-V8 for 3 months on display.....it's not like was gonna say "no" to that one!!!

    It will be an awesome exhibit! I hope everyone that can, goes to see it...especially after all the hard work you and the rest of the So.Cal team put into it.

    Thanks man! It was a AWESOME weekend! :D...like being in a dream, and hoping I don't wake up from it! :eek:

    It's strange to me to think that I now OWN a "show and Mag car"....never thought I would be able to tack THAT title on the T.

    Your always welcome to a ride, anytime! ...She is still the same ol' T it was before.

    ..you watch, I'll have 150 copies of each one :D

    ..and I think I might have to take you up on the donut and coffee :D

    COOL!!

    That T has the best profile, just mean. Way to go.
     
  24. Very rad little car. I was the strange looking fellow with the mustache that weekend. It was nice meeting you Clayton. Glad we were able to get you over to Vern's despite not being able to bring the T, and the run in with the law (THANKS ROB). Hey rob, any sort of opening night party planned?

    Okay, the exhibit opens in a couple days. I expect to see some pictures of it posted here from some of you Sacramento HAMBers before the week-end is over. Just remembered, I might be thru there next week-end. I'll have to try and stop in and see it in person.
     
  28. Congratulations Clayton and very deserving! But, I have a question. Will you have it back in time for Billetproof NW? Would love to see it in person.

    Will! It was a pleasure to meet you as well! Visiting Vern's shop was an absolute blast!....and are you telling me you didn't enjoy our little run in with the CHP? :D I hope to make it down again before the exhibit ends to see it in it's glory. We'll have to take the T down to Vern's when I come down to pick it up.

    I hoping for some good pics too!.....I'm excited to see how the whole thing turned out!

    Since the Exhibit runs through July 5th, it will over shadow Billetproof NW by about 2 weeks so it won't able to attend this year. I do plan on having it at Billetproof next year :D

    You are of course always welcome to join us for the monthly VooDoo Donut meet here in Portland or come by our shop out in Beaverton on a Saturday.....the more the merrier!

    ...and I'll also give you a ride in the T :D
