    thanks for all your efforts have massively helped hotrodders all around the world!
    For us guys living far away from America its really hard to build a nice traditional car, and for me it would be impossible without this place.

    Gotta say, I don't even remember how I stumbled onto the HAMB, or if someone told me about it. But its one of the sites I visit every single day I am able. It's part of my daily rabbit path. Like life, it has its ups and downs, aggrevation, personality conflicts, and even some outright fights. But I love it.
    Thanks for this thing you've created, and a Joyous Christmas, and Happy and Prosperous New Year to you. Thank You!

    Thank you, Ryan. You can't possibly know how many lives you've changed, how many people you've introduced to hot rodding and how many people you've helped get technical info over the years. I've been into antique autos & hot rods for 50 years and have still learned a lot here. You made my transition into retirement much easier.

    Thank you for all you do and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family!
  13. Ryan,
    Thank's for all you do for all us rodders around this world. This is the place to be if you are a hot rodder.

    Merry Christmas dude

    Thank you Ryan! Thank you! If it weren't for this place I wouldn't have met some of the wonderful people that I can call friends and even family! If it weren't for this place I wouldn't have ever learned what I know or at least been driven to know what I know, and been inspired by. IN FACT! I think it's pretty safe to say that I have MY JOB because of the HAMB! So again... THANK YOU! And Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    That's all the mooshiness I have in me today...
  15. 17 years ago I was 12-1/2, that Summer I found my dad's 60s and 70s Oz Hot rod mags stashed in a timber box in his shed and I have been reading them since.

    Happy Birthday Jalopy Journal!

    I wasnt even born 17 years ago! Thanks for a great site Ryan.

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
  21. Same, what I have learnt through TJJ has been invaluable and the friendships are priceless. I can safely say if it had not been for TJJ and the HAMB my US trip would more then likely never of happened. So Thank you Ryan for this awesome medium. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to you and your family. See ya soon...

    Thanks for the great gift Ryan. Reminds me of another story about wise men following a 'Lone Star' to seek it's origin and give thanks.

    Wow, looks like The Jalopy Journal is a Capricorn too!

    "Happy Birthday and Merry Christmas to the entire Jalopy Journal family."
