I respect that, but this site is about TRADITIONAL HOT RODS.
I swear Ryan plants these periodically just to see if we are paying attention.
I agree, there is a time and place for everything. But we need to be more mature about things like this. People should be corrected and taught, not harrased and ran off. Maybe this guy was wantig to build a hauler and needed better advice on how to go about building it and he just worded it wrong.
Sorry, the world isn't perfect. Especially the HAMB
Send the guy a PM and give him some advice, hold his hand while your at it.
could be, but there are a lot of these on here. When i first got on this forum, i was new into building older cars. To be honest i thoght this was a rat rodders forum. Now that i have been on here long enough and can tolerate people on here, i have learned that i dont build nor like rat rods, but i like traditional hot rods. No where does it say, unless i over looked, that this is for traditional hot rods only.
And just what are you doing over there ?????
Corrected and taught about what? He is building a dually rat rod...what do you want to teach him? To build it in a traditional manner? To learn how to read the rules and understand the concept behind this site? This whole thing about being nice to everyone only leads to the "pussification" of the world.
Looks like you didn't read the rules either.....
"The HAMB is dedicated to spreading the gospel of traditional hot rods and kustoms to hoodlums world wide. That’s right – TRADITIONAL. "
You beat me to it..
noxided just so that you will not be confused by the rules here is a direct quote from The Boss (AKA Ryan Cochran) as of August 5, 2010. Now I am sure that he may have changed his mind since then but it is doubtful since he as been skating the same line since 1976.
This message board is a forum for TRADITIONAL hot rods and customs.<HR align=center color=#e5e5e5 SIZE=1 width="100%" noShade>If you are not interested in talking about either, go away. Not only have there been a lot of OT posts that I've had to delete lately, but there are also a lot of non-traditional posts. There are other message boards for that stuff.... This is not a cute and sweet community with lots of compassion for all things "street rod" - this board was built to be focused on the traditional and thats how it will stay... Please be conscious of that"
OK then carry on.
Just in case.
yeah, you overlooked it. i thought it was pretty clear.
people can and do get away with some OT threads occasionally. as long as it's not super ridiculous or WAY OT, Ryan typically will let it slide. but yes, this site is for traditional hot rods and customs.
I read rules like instructions, i just wing it. Anyways rules are meant to be broken, thats traditional hot rodding.
How do you know they're not centered as youre view is at an angle?
Cover your ass much?
oh, THAT'S traditional hot rodding. cool. now we know.
by the way, doesnt off topic mean "anything off topic" i could ask a question about plumbing my shop and that would be off topic?
Sorry, i just like to push buttons and get my point across.
Well some folks around here didn't seem to care for the fact that I'm trying to put a 49 chevy 3100 on top of a 84 Ford F150 with a 300 I6, manual trans and 4 wheel drive. I think the 4 wheel drive part did it, because I've seen cars on here sitting on S10 frames with not so vintage engines pushing them.
I'm not trying to build a R@%, just building a truck with what I had, the F150 was free and it has just a 1 inch longer wheel base than the 3100. It also has a 300 inline 6 so I have more room under the hood now.
The previous owners had cut up my firewall and left front fender to make their SB 350 fit and they ruined the original chassis, so mainly I was looking for a new chassis and just lucked out finding one for free with an engine I liked already in it.
Sharpen your "Point" a little more and capitalize "I" ....
Then get your point across.
No one gives a damn about your shop plumbing.
I spent 40 years working for guys that sounded like a bunch of old ladies, thought I got away from them when I retired. Guess not. Time to move on I guess.
There's another fine forum called 'The Garage Journal' for stuff like that.
Thats just part of working in a shop, and I guess being traditional.
Oh, hell yeah, I love that forum.
Along with the volksrod forum.
So now we're gonna axe everybody here with a Mustang II, Volare, Camaro, or Fatman IFS under their rig? Maybe I should surrender my account since my 54 has a very untraditional TH400 tranny!
You guys come in droves don't you?
dont give up gavin these guys are hard asses just dont mention the r word i caught hell for asking about rack ana pinion steering but its cool. Traditional when did air bags become tradiontal???lol
Your last post before this said you were moving on......
