Art & Inspiration REDO!!!: HAMB Auction for The Virginia HAMB Special - See Post 19

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by brett4christ, Nov 18, 2020.

  1. EDIT: Fast forward to post 19 for the REDO!!

    Many of you that follow land speed racing may have been following John Mullen (@john mullen) and his Virginia HAMB Special race truck competing in XO/PP classification, driven by Dave Russell (@D-Russ). John and his small team of Heaps CC members turned pit crew are redefining the term “grass roots” racing!

    For those of you just now crawling out from under your cozy little rock, here's the "rest of the story"...

    This season, the team suffered setbacks, both off and on the track. To help out, I’m holding a HAMB auction for a set of my pinstriped Christmas ornaments, with all proceeds going to the 640 XO/PP team.

    The auction will run until midnight Thanksgiving Day. The post with the highest bid before the last stroke of 12 wins the set, and I’ll cover continental US shipping. Offshore/international winner will need to cover the difference.

    Here we high! John and the team wants to go back to Bonneville in 2021!!!


    Colors are as close as I could get to Washington blue and Wimbleton White! Thanks for bidding!!!!

    UPDATE!!! John has sweetened the pot...see post 11!

  5. @D-Russ , I'm glad to help out! I have the ability and desire, so why not use it for good! Y'all have busted your butts to help John realize his dream...consider this my butt-bust!
  6. Out of reach for me but Brett is to be commended for offering up his God given talent to help sponsor this team. HRP

  18. Ok guys and dolls,

    We had a winner and he's taken the high road!!! @ken bogren has chosen to donate his winning bid to the team and NOT take the ornaments! his request, I am re-running the auction! Another chance for anyone following (or just starting to follow) the Virginia HAMB Special Land Speed Race Team to chip in and help them on their run for a record on the salt! Bid high and bid often! Winner gets a set of my hand-painted pinstriped ornaments and helps fund John Mullen's race truck running in XO/PP class.

    Winning bid at midnight eastern time Thursday night will win. I will spring for shipping as soon as John received the donation.

    @ClutchDumpinDan will be celebrating the Christmas season in STYLE!!!

    Thanks to all that participated! I also strongly suggest that you follow along vicariously with the team as they press forward with their collective dream of setting a record in XO/PP! These guys are a special group! great documentation and knowledge, and their stories capturing their escapades make you feel like you're on the trip with them!

    Go get that record, Guys!!
  26. On behalf of myself and team 640 I want to thank Brett4christ and all who participated in the auction
    We appreciate the funds raised and the people who bid to show support for the project.
    Also wish to thank Ryan for allowing Brett to post the auction.
    Thanks to all.
