    Saw a couple of my favorite HAMB cars and a bunch more.

    Not sure if the Blue roadster got to run but it gets my vote for Best Banger.

    Oh man, how did I not see that!!!:eek: RAD!
     
  3. Wow Ryan!, thank you sir! We will be back, and it will be better! I just got off the phone with the mayor, he is astouded at the quailty of people and their kindness. I attribute this to you HAMB folk that had my back in this battle on the sand! You people whent far above any standard of human decency to be polite to towns people, police yourselves and others, pick up garbage, etc.! They are so damn happy!

    I thank you all, that was an "A" team effort. I love it when a plan comes together! Thank you all!!!

    Friggin awesome day.

    Don't forget to search/post to instagram: #thereaceofgentlemen AND #raceofgentlemen

    Great pics of the day all around, but haven't see too many like these from my buddy Mike.
    Props to this guy for killing it out of the gate! He was definitely on a mission, till the sand decided otherwise. Definitely gets my vote for the most badass run of the day!:

    Mel, I can't say anything that hasn't already been said.You pulled off the greatest automotive event I have ever been to. Jeffrey, Dustin, Josh and I had an absolute blast! Worth every second of the drive up from NC. We all said that no matter what we will NEVER miss this event. Hats off to you sir!

    Some truly incredible photo documentation on these pages of the event!!... I don't live that far away from the shore town where this took place, however, unfortunately a prior commitment kept me from making the show-- Next year I definitely wanna "BE THERE"!!... It's a great concept and certainly one that the often "culturally stagnant" Jersey shore is much in need of... Bless all the folks who made this happen, as well as all those who participated... You've got something really great going on here... Hope it endures for many years to come...

    I just don't understand how Mel, the Oilers, and all those jalopy jockeys manage to get there pants on every morning. I mean...their balls must be HUGE. Congrats to you all!
     
  10. This guys name is Matt, otherwise known with his other counter part as the Flying Cubans!
    He is doing great, and sorry he fell. He should be! We now call them the Crashing Cubans.

    For a second, I was wondering if this was from the beach party the day before and we were getting a sneak peak of the Dancing Cuban.

    You guys just wait, Mel has some shit up his sleeve for the next one! It's gonna be even better if that's even possible. We're gonna work on a bunch of details to tie it all together. Can't believe it's over....

    You read posts and talk with folks on the HAMB, but you don't know their faces. Jeffery, that is my white haired dad and my brother in your video off to the right. I guess we were standing right next to you. I have read a lot of your posts and would have liked to have met you.

    And when was the last time an auto / bike race promoter had to worry about tides, sea states and wind conditions?!?!? Har har. Gary
