  2. Wow Ryan, You have once again reinvented the term traditional, with a twist! I like it!

    Since no rules exist I have a question. what is the cut off date or will one exist in the future? HRP

  5. So is it still limited to pre '65? Would hate to see a bunch of late model crap....
    Seems like there should be some basic guidelines

    At the moment there are no rules and I just plan on deleting shit that annoys me... If that sounds like something that might hurt your feelings or you just have to have structure, don't use that forum.... More or less, I'm curious as to how things will go.

  8. This reminds me of a car club I once belonged to. They kept raising the cutoff of the year allowed until all of the original die-hards quit. I can see this argument in a way as some things already get a pass. Just has to be managed and the rules developed.

    I thought April 1 was last month….

    I think it’s a great idea. So much, I started up a small board to cover things we don’t cover here. It’s shown a little interest, not as much as I’d like but I haven’t really been advertising it much. There are a lot of us that own cars from different eras. I like pretty much all of them, each has or had a purpose, but that’s not saying I’d want to own a lot of them.

    Give Mark and Cob some guidelines and I’m sure they can keep it straight!

    Tribalism is for the weak. :)

    The HAMB itself isn't raising its year cutoff or changing its focus at all. In fact, if anything, we are gonna be more strict as we could potentially have a place to dump posts that aren't as traditional as we like...

    OR, this could really annoy me and I'll delete the whole thing tomorrow...

  11. Now, that makes more sense and could be a good thing as it allows a place for different perspectives.
     
  12. I couldn't believe the Manx post last week but refrained from making any 'traditional, read the rules' remarks.
    I think this is a step ahead that may enable many to have a home here. It breaks my heart when I see the names of thousands of former members who are no longer sharing here, because they did not quite fit the scope of this board.
     
  13. Wow, didn't have that on my 2024 BINGO card, but I think it's cool!

    I can easily see the cut off date being raised to say 1970, because this includes some really cool cars that came along later than 1965.

    Especially with the advent of the muscle car Era and the people that the muscle car race inspired. Not to mention some really cool customs started coming out in the later 60's...

    I agree it's cool to at least give it a try, become to stagnant or unflexable and you begin to die and wither away....

    If this is another separate website for late model stuff fine, if it adding 2015 tuner cars to the HAMB you run the risk of offending a lot of people.

  17. In a way, aren't we already there? Some cool stuff gets a pass, drag cars, engines.
    Please, no mustangs..

    Ryan I like your style! As a person who grew up in the 60’s and entered the automotive workforce in the 70’s, there are lots of non HAMB friendly vehicles I find personally interesting. Mostly modified vehicles. Both of my current personal cars don’t fit the HAMB format but…
    I have modified them with features I think would be applicable and interesting to HAMB correct vehicles.

    so, I may post up some “how to” with our 1970 MGB and it’s GPS speedometer modification and stand-alone Bluetooth radio bar and show my 1968 Chrysler 300’s recent driveway paint job with the off-topic wheel choice (originally completed in the early 2000’s)

    I think this might work, lot of cool stuff that is almost HAMB. When I first joined I asked about why pre 65, at first I didn’t get it , now I totally get it! The biggest problem with building a traditional Hot Rod is parts availability and cost. I would love to have a model T or A roadster or 32 anything, hopefully someday but at present I just can’t swing the $$$s for that sort of project. A follow HAMBer @Lone Star Mopar made me a deal I couldn’t refuse on a 66 Dart which I plan on building in the HAMB spirit, gathering parts as we speak. Again OT stuff on a stand alone forum where it can’t corrupt HAMB is good idea IMHO

    Late model crap: you mean like a personal computer or cell phone?

    Why?

    I mean, god damn... I would hope I offended them long before I created a sub-forum that they don't have to look at.

    Gas Ronda, Les Richey, Dick Brannan, Bill Lawton and more drove 1965 A/FX Mustangs. I would think they should certainly get a pass being a huge part in drag racing history.

    Let it happen and let's see what the fallout is. As long as the existing rules for the HAMB apply for the traditional builds, everything will be alright in HAMB land. If I want to build a Wankel rotary powered shoebox Ford, it goes in the new place.

    Right if this forum pisses you off DON’T look or engage. I don’t know if I’ll like it or not - time will tell. Any way I understand all the the other forums will stay the same.

    because i always thought of you and the hamb as the last bastion of the traditional hot rod, never wavering, steadfast in your passion. saddens me to think they have finally gotten to you, even if you stick it in a sub-forum.
