I've been lurking for almost a year and enjoying every minute of it, but was hesitant about joining because I didn't actually build my own car. Seems like I have been in love with old cars my entire life, but felt like it wasn't feasible to have one unless you are either rich or know how to do all of the work yourself. Since I don't fall into either category, I didn't really think I'd ever have one. It finally got to the point that I just couldn't stand it any longer and I bought an old klunker of a '60 4-door Bel Air. Even though I didn't build it myself, I have had a ball deciding what I want done to it and watching the changes being made. I have learned a lot during my lurking period, and have had the pleasure of meeting a couple of HAMB members. Most of my car work has been done by Okiecockfighter and all but one of my tattoos were done by McPhail. I'm crazy about many of the cars that I've seen on here, and hope to have the opportunity to meet some of you at VLV this year. I look forward to learning more and plan to do a lot more reading than posting. Cathy H.
