New from Maryland

Discussion in 'New to the H.A.M.B.? Introduce yourself here!' started by Jjaeger240, Aug 21, 2009.

  1. Hi everyone,
    From Baltimore, MD, probably younger than most on here. Rods are pretty new to me, been spending the past 3-6 months or so soaking in as much insightful information as I can possibly learn and endlessly searching here and a few other discussion boards for knowledge. Only car I've ever built was my previous car used for drifting (as I've noticed not the most-liked motorsport around here) that I competed with for a couple years.

    Would really like to attend some hang-outs, find out about some swap meets, and the in's and out's of my area from fellow local Maryland folk to help me learn some more and begin my own project.

    So anyone local who wouldn't mind me picking their brains with lots of questions and helping me find my niche in this community I'd really appreciate it. Thanks, and hope to meet some people and eventually get a build going on here.

    -Jesse

    Hey Jesse, Welcome to the site, hang in there and scan the Craigslist in your area, something will come up either here or there. You can always start with a 50's or 60's car that runs and then trade it for a project you prefer. It's all good!

    Welcome neighbor from here in VA - there is a Jalopy meet October 31st up your way we are planning on going to.:)
     
  6. I'm in Kingsville (north of Perry Hall, almost Bel Air) however I grew up in your neck of the woods down in Parkville.

    I'll definitely have to take you up on that offer and be sending you a pm soon about possibly meeting you and trying to learn. My family and friends are both only interested in a vehicle than can get from Point A to B and nothing else, so all I've consumed so far is my lone experiences and reading.

    I joined the group, if I can find an address and what time this show starts tomorrow in Pikesville I'll definitely be there taking pictures and popping eardrums with endless questions.

  7. I'll search up the information and be sure to attend, thanks!

    Haha, yeah I saw that. It's where I learned there are a few outspoken members here that aren't too fond of import cars and to watch how much I say.

    Welcome. I'm in Laurel. I found my project here on the HAMB. It's better then craigslist I'll tell you that. Mine was shipped all the way from Washington State though. But there have been projects I've found from Maryland on here as well.
