The Jalopy Journal

17,856 and proud of it! lol
Sometime in the early 90's our work librarian explained the internet to me and described Bulletin Boards. I was on the early Rodders Round Table when it flamed out. I found the Jalopy Journal with the mag wheel and drag slick - if I remember right. It didn't do anything. I looked it it from time-to-time and the HAMB came into being...can't remember when that was. I've got a fairly low number from 2001 or so.
Any idea where July 6 2010 puts me?
Just missed the first 500. These threads are always a great reminder of the changes the board has gone through and brings out some who rarely post anymore ( me included, always more of a lurker). I’ve learned a ton here and made some really good friends along the way.
Looks like I am number 18,379 and I would agree with some that have said that they have met lots of great friends from being here. I would have to say that my closest friends outside of family were met here some that even live quite a distance from me...
Thanks for bringing this group together Ryan!
Can you see your own #? I can't seem to?
wondering were 11 years puts me on the curve (plus a few as a lurker before being called out)
12500 way down on the bottom line. Bob
Easy way to find your number, look at the very bottom of your screen, the last white left hand corner. Then hover over the avatar you are seeking the number for, now look at that bottom corner, it is the last number. Bob
Wow I've been a member since 2007! #37650. I was a lurker fro about a year before. I am currently shooting for the slowest build on the HAMB, been 11 years so far
No way, found my '30 roadster body in 1962, sold it, bought it back 25 years later, nothing changed, still plodding along 58 years later. Bob
Yup the mag wheel. As I mentioned I found this place around Christmas 1999. I read the home page, looked at a couple links. There was not much content and if I remember right the only link to the HAMB was a hyperlink that I accidentaly found a few weeks later in Jan.
Didn't Mart over in the UK have a girl on a mag wheel with a drag slick? I found his site before the HAMB, thought is was really neat that American Hot Rodding was that popular overseas. Bob
I think so
I joined a LONG time ago, got banned, cause i was a dick, haha. Then i lurked for a few years, then joined again as Bad Bob, and have been a member ever since...
Most users at one time was 717. That is worldwide. But that is not participating members, just how many were on at one moment in time.
Guess that means a few of us are posting, but a bunch are reading!
Can’t find it on my IPhone
177,650. I look like a newbie compared to some of these numbers but when you look at the total, there are over a million after me.
always wanted a seven digit account......probably got one here.....would prefer it at my bank.
84,739. In the "Under a Hundred Thousand" club.
27523, Feb 7 2007.
Lurked before that and hated it cuz of all the drama, but this is the only place I go anymore and can't get enough.
Me and GMan were on a shiny shit streetrod website back then and there was a lot of folks lookin down their noses at others.
This is home.
This is as funny as watching an old lady use a microphone for a cell phone!
#31,705 checking in.............
This look familiar? HRP
Thanks, I’m under 200,000
Still a newbie
Yep but was that the first or second logo
I joined back in 2000 if my memory is right. When there was a major revision of the site in 2001, we got new numbers and I am now 418. No idea what number I was back when originally signed up, doesn't matter. For sure been hanging around here for a long time. I can say the original HAMB was a lot more smartass and rough on newbies. It was a tighter group then, with lot fewer members.
