    Welcome back to the light..... It's hard to stay in it. but your HAMB family will be right here to give help when you ask. P.S. I also have a 41 Mercury and if you need anything just drop me a line.
  2. Don't know you or even ever heard of you but know this with the above quote which is true.

    Once an addict, always an addict. It will not be easy to stay on the right side of the tracks as you well know. Almost seven years clean now and the rest of your life ahead of you. Be proud of your life, even the past because it is who you are. Stay clean my new friend and live your new life to the fullest. Talk with someone who was in your shoes and is also clean, they can help you.

    I know my place on this forum is car related stuff.
    With that, I will remain humble.
    I was in the Psych ward 2010 during Christmas. It's all a blur but my only support units were people trying to give me more drugs for the keys to my storage units..
    I did a long stint and then another year and a half in a treatment center..
    This place taught me how to reevaluate my life. I don't want high fives. I still write but the direction has been about the darkness I lived for pushing 20 years.
    I also have an original 1967 Triumph Chopper that was built in the 70's. Dual carbs and all that jazz.
    Still interested in Early-Mid Hemis.
    Intakes, etc.
    I have a bunch of traditional hop up stuff that will be going up on my auction page soon.
    My ebay ID is losershero

    There are a lot of the guys that have been around for a while that now have different HAMB names (like me) that remember your old posts.
    It good to see you back and hear you have made positive changes in your life. We are looking forward to see new posts as you work on your car, and get re-connected with the board. Gene

    I always felt that there was a good man under the tortured facade . Glad you made it out OK. You may not remember but you were one of the first people to welcome me to the HAMB. I have always appreciated that. Welcome back!

  12. I haven’t been around as long as these guys. It looks like you’ve got a huge support group - good for you! I look forward to the Merc build.
  13. Great to see you back. You wandered off from here not long after I joined in 99 I think, so i missed a lot of your content.
    Whenever someone started athread about, whatever happened too.... Hambers would always talk about you, and how much they missed your writing.
    Look forward to watching you play with that ol car.

    Welcome back Germ,

    glad to see that you've turned your life around, be it doing it with a lot of heartache and loss - at least you got there.

    Political correctness is alive and well, so the "New GERM" sounds like you'll fit straight back in here.

    good luck to to for your personal and hot rod futures, you're a welcome addition to the "family"

    Welcome back my friend. I was told once by a very dear friend of mine, "If you don't go through the fire, how do you think you are going to relate to someone that is going through it" May your walk from the fire into the light be as eye opening and precious as you have ever known. The rewards are priceless. Godspeed my friend!
