    YES. I've been going through all the old threads lately trying to find the good stuff but couldn't figure out how to get to the beginning (as in before 2004..) Thanks, Sam!

    2001 was the new HAMB. How do we view our posts in 1998 and 99?

    33 pages like the spinal cord and freemason numbers.
  6. Readingthrough that shows how minimalist the board was then. Kind of like your favorite band before they got all polished and could afford better equipment.

    BTW, back then it took me a month to realize what that hot link was on the editorial page!
  7. I remember those days on the HAMB well. I had a whopping 163 posts at the time. In looking through them I have to admit that finding this one made me laugh out loud!

  8. What's funny is that I was doing a wishbone tech back then... and just did another one recently. Over ten years apart still the same blah, blah, blah!


  9. Yeah Sam,some of the Hamb's past is better forgotten......
    Seems for the most part,We are a better place now.

    What a contrast in topics. OT is the new norm now.

    I know this is OT but.....

    Rocket Scientist Chris

    Yes, that was a pretty rough place. Kind of like Junior High School! :eek: I guess we have all grown up a bit. :)
  12. What is even funnier is that Charlie Price was screwing people and getting threads devoted to him back then!:D:eek:

    And then I find Charlie posting here today. Thread from 2006, at least his delivery is consistant! ;)

  13. Hehehe, 1 month before I joined. 12 years addicted to the HAMB and I'm still an idiot.
  14. I still have a crush on Rocket Scientist Chris

    (don't tell her) :D
  15. Our first BTT50s get together thread is in that bunch. Met a ton of folks that weekend.

    Huh...An' I thought THESE were the good ol' days...
  19. The lastest post I could see was from 3-11-02... I was a lurker until 12/11/02.

    Some classic Nads and Germ back then.
  20. I lurked back then but was a car-less college student so I didn't feel like I 'belonged', and from the looks of how they treated the newbs, I just read instead of posting.

    Because that was when FNGs got a real hazing if you didn't intro, came across as a dumbass or just for the hell of it most of the time :eek:
  26. Cause in the online car world the Hamb has a "not so nice" reputation on how it welcomes new members :D

    Of course, its the ones that dont bother to READ any of the rules that whine the loudest on "those" forums :cool:
