    67 this year (going on 15 according to my better half). I have been without a good ride for several years but this year got my shoebox. My best buddie Dick, also the other half of DJ's Louver Service, NH's best louver company, likes to remind me of a cover of Hot Rod Magazine from the 80s. Had a SOHC conversion in a mustang convertible a 70+ lettuce grower in the Imperial Valley built to cruise. I guess I said that still cruising in your 70s in a real hot rod/custom, would make life worthwhile. So I stepped up and bought this car and sure am glad I did. Saturday we'll put in 3:31 gear set ('52 Fordomatic gears) to replace the 4:11s. Then next year we can do Syracuse, Rhinebeck and the like. Also today I am like a kid of 15, just bought a set of NOS Foxcraft skirts for the shoebox off Craigslist, not repops, were in a Western Auto box from MA someplace. Better than Xmas around here tonight.

    Mazooma said it to a "T". 60 here and enjoying every minute of it. It sure beats the alternative!
     
  26. There's 430 of us in the Old Fart's Club here on teh HAMB. Didn't see the original poster there.
    We're probably the most orginized bunch with the most number of threads and posts of any HAMB group. We have our own T-Shirts and license plate toppers to boot.
    So why are so many of the guys who posted here not in the OFC?
