    This is why I love the HAMB,the primered,scratched,rusted,dented badass machines that you can have fun with. Granted I know there's those with shiny 100% perfect rides on here and I'm not knocking them one bit,I'm just glad there's a place for us dirty ass hot rodders here! Your 55 rules dude.

    thanks lance.

    it's been a while since i've updated this thing but that's mostly cuz i haven't done anything to the car besides a front disc swap & drive it trouble free all year.

    i did take the shitbox out to fallout in CT last weekend, great show & a great time. here's a pic with my fave ride from the show.

    also my club's season closer car show is this sunday. so if you're in new england you should go to it! also buy a shirt a support shirt from my classified ad! thanks!

    Yeah, right? I asked him how it was a 70s southern gasser & "not a tribute" when I put it together in 2010...he didn't get back to me yet.
