    As most of you know our little group lost our mentor last week. "Pops" was his HAMB name but that name meant much more to us.

    The Celebration Service for Pops is tomorrow, Thursday. Our group decided the best way to honor Pops was to get back to wrenching. We also decided the best thing to wrench on would be Pops car. We need to be sure it is at the service.

    So we got after it and accomplished everything we set out to. Just for good measure, we decided to do a tranny swap in my Brothers (blood) daily at the same time. "Many hands make light work"......

    Sorry for the OT content. Look at it as Brothers helping Brothers,,,,


    We worked all day. Monkey supplied breakfast, Mama Rash supplied lunch and we wrapped up the day with a fish fry and brain cell pickling.... Hopefully some of my Buds will add more pics. Maybe a video or two...

    Guys, I know I have told you this before but Jim lives on in all of you. He would be proud indeed.

    See you tomorrow.
     
  12. I can't imagine a better way to spend the day or a better group

    Take care.
     
  13. Looks like a rough and tumble bunch of dudes... Or was that a drunk and stumble bunch of dudes???

    Another moment we'll always remember. If we're all brothers, then Rashy's the big brother.

    Pops had good taste in cars - that 39 is sweet
     
  16. Sorry for your loss... what size tires are on the front of the 39?? Is it a Mustang II? I'm want my car to sit like that.

    Lift one for Pops on my behalf please.
