    I didn't see another thread for pics yet, so here's a link to a couple hundred in my fotki album.

    I'd hope to run into some hambers there today, but I didn't recognize anyone. Was there with my Dad...was a good day. Pardon the lack of quality or cohesion...hard to get down and around to the good angles while trying to keep a dangling cane from bumping into the cars.

    Was that cane red? If so you talked with me in the swap. I had the 40 Chevy sedan for sale on the black trailer. There were at least 8-10 Hamb guys there that I know of. I looked at the pictures and this is the rundown. #28 Bobwop that's him sitting behind it, #109 CraftyB not sure if he's still here or not, #163 348Tripower, #187 Flynbrian, #189 Twochops.,

    No, it's a very aged natural wood cane, but I did look at that sedan for a minute. We need floating arrows above our heads for identifying from a distance. lol. It's been a while since I've been able to get to/through a car show...I was about ready to crawl out when I left...almost asked a cruiser for a ride to the gate. :D Well worth it, though.

    Another good show put on by Relix.I really enjoyed pushing my boy around and looking at all the bitchin cars.I think he really like grandpa's car though.
    Can't wait for next year.

    Bob, sorry I didn't have more time to talk when you came around. By the time I closed shop you'd already left.

    That car was sweet. I liked a lot of cars there, but that one did stand out.

    Sorry Bob...which one is that?

    Glad you guys are enjoying the pics. I gotta say, I'm surprised they turned out at all. My back is a train wreck and for most of them I just tried to get in the ballpark and click, with the camera held down and not being able to see the screen. lol. They got worse as I got toward the end of my able-to-walk rope...with me literally just walking down the rows and clicking as I get to them. Ha.

    Pain aside, I was there with my Dad, and that was great. He's a retired body/paint man and whenever the subject of my old Ford or old cars in general comes up, he goes right to the "old cars are money pits...80k into it and can't get half that back" blah blah. I wanted him to see that for me, and for a lot of people, it's very possible to enjoy old cars without spending as much as a house. I think I may have finally chipped a corner off that stone.

    With or without him, I'll be back to this show for sure. Hopefully next year I'll have the '46 running. It's only a couple hours SW. I haven't been too active on the hamb in the last several years, so maybe by the time it rolls around next year it'll be easier to spot people again. If anyone is in/around Mt. Pleasant or Alma give me a yell on the...conversation (Ryan, you really gotta work on that one. lol).

    Ah, okay. Yep that was a great looking car. That you in the pic, then? If so then we did chat for a moment, but just.

    This would be me.

    Good to meet ya Bob. I'll try to hang around longer next time. Still can't get that interior out of my head...it's making me rethink how I want to do mine...a little. And those armrests...taillights? Or just red plex with some reflective pattern behind them? Spacey.

    Yep, that settles it then. Clearly, alien technology. I can get behind that.

    I thought it may be, but wasn't entirely sure. I read through your thread on it and really like what you've done with it. I have a '46 Tudor about an hour North of you that I'm finally digging into after buying it last fall from a fellow hamber in the Detroit area. If you're ever up in the Mt. Pleasant/Alma area give me a holler.

    Also, I'm pretty sure my brother had that console in one of his cars when I was still a kid. What's it from? I just can't recall. I thought it was cool as hell then and still do.

    I have a thing for '26-'27 T Coupes. Bad. Really bad! After my '46 is done, that's what I want next. Hopefully I can fit in one again by then too. Ha! [pats gut]
