    17 years ago? I think I had a Mullet back then. That was a long time ago.

    Ryan, thank you for the Jalopy Journal and the HAMB. On here I have learned a lot of useless information that only us gearheads can appreciate. You also taught me how to better use my computer and it was taught in a way I could understand.

    So thank you for starting this great website. You have done hotrodders a service that will never be equalled.

    I was about 11 months old when this all started!

    I havent been on here for long, but I have learned to love and appreciate this website since discovering it. Thanks so much for creating the HAMB Ryan, i feel it will forever preserve the gospel of traditional hot rodding and customs, and this world really needs that. I can only imagine what kind of trouble I'd be getting into if I didnt have my car to work on or the shows, people, and this website to get inspiration from.

    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas, and LONG LIVE THE H.A.M.B.!!!!

    Thanks! You have helped many to realize in this crazy ass world that there are some other guys out there that "get it". We were in Vegas for Nascar week and stumbled upon the Bo Huff show. I found a car that was perfect and told my wife "you know I never see a car without knocking something, but that is perfect" She said, "Well, of course, it has a HAMB badge, I saw that and knew it would be just right" I hadn't seen, but she was right, we have a great group of guys that appreciate craftsmanship and the beauty of mechanical things the way they were. Thanks again!

    Ryan , that's for taking that first step and starting the best forum the internet has to offer ! I actually found the HAMB from the Hot rodders forum that I was a member of . When I started looking around the forum I knew it was just what I have been looking for ! I didn't join for maybe 2 to 3 years . I did visit the HAMB on a regular basics , mostly every night , and I just read what people were posting and watched how things were before I would finally join . You can review a lot of things without joining which was really great .
    Then I finally decided to join and the rest is history . I go to the Jalopy Showdown and HAMB Drags every year and really look forward to that an awful lot too ! I am usually on the HAMB everyday and many times a day in most cases ! I am a HAMB Junkie for sure ! Just can't get enough !
    I have made an awful lot of friends along the way from around the world and I thank you for that as well ! They have all been helpfull and I have helped them as well .

    I do wish you , your wife , your children and your entire family a Very Merry Christmas and a Healthy & Prosperous New Year ! Enjoy your time with your family and friends this Holiday Season because that is worth more than anything !

    Thanks again for all you do and have given us with the Jalopy Journal and the HAMB ! Also please thank your Mom for such a great name too !!

    Happy Anniversary and Merry Christmas to you and yours Ryan. Funny how this day 17 years ago would come about to effect so many others in such a positive manner. Thanks for sharing and connecting Hot Rodders from sea to shining sea.

  27. Congrats! And thanks for all of the hard work!

    This community you have built is a breath of fresh air and a strong dose of hard metal reality in this often fakey and messed up world.
