In front of the Skipper residence with Max the Moai....miss you Bob
Thanks Ryan, I was on the fence about going, not that I didn't want to, but I was kind of scared to. I figured I could pay respect in my own way..... but then I realized I had to go...... I just had to. We spent a lot of time telling Bob K stories, which lead to other stories, and we even created some new stories! I guess it all boils down to life being a series of stories. It was hard to go, but it was so good to see my friends and tell some stories, its exactly how he would have wanted it. His plan worked!
Sorry as I can't make the drags Tim, but I also would love to have one of the stickers.
Thanks for letting us all in on this event Ryan. Bob was a great guy and I am sure it will not be the same at Bonneville this year with out him stopping by our area in the pits. But I am sure he will be there in our minds. RIP my friend.
Keep the stories and pictures coming fellas.
Let's Celebrate Bob.....
Goodbye Hamb legend.
I've read Bob for years, but never spoke to him. His threads were always a pleasure to read.
Rest In Peace Bob K.
Sunday morning for Bob.
Please share more photos and stories fellas.
Thanx for such a beautiful send off of our beloved Bob.
Bob will truly be missed . I met him the one time I went to Bonneville and he always sent me a PM wishing me a happy Birthday, Safe trip Bob
I really miss BobK....
As TZ said before.......
Top for Bob....
Please share your pics and stories.
Nobody traveled the country more in a old car than Bob did.
Thanks for sharing this Ryan. Looks like a very fitting farewell to Bob. I guess I hadn't seen the Chevy in person since he "fixed" the Alaska rock chip on the hood. Classic Bob K. right there. I'm gonna miss that guy even though I only saw him once or twice a year. The shows won't be the same.
Put me down for one of those Bob K. gnome stickers!
All the times I hung out with BB I don't have any photos of him that I took myself, and I don't have a shot of us together. He has joined the rogues gallery in my garage, but I had to swipe this photo off FB. Don't know who took it, it's a great shot and captures his spirit...
Also realized I've had this hanging on the wall for a long time...
Kind like playing Where's Waldo. Sure enough, there's BB, right there beside some idiot...
Im not as fancy with frames and all, but Bob is watching me in the shop. I swear his eyes move like the old Uncle Sam posters.
Good stuff ^^^^^^^ thanks for sharing.
Dollar store... heck, I get them at a Canadian Dollar Store, that's like the .75¢ store for you 'mericans.
Nice tribute! We should all be that loved. RIP Bob.
Death is hard to take for those left here. For the loved ones taking the final ride all we can ask is that we left them smiling ! Sounds like Bob accomplished that ten fold! R.I.P. Bob enjoy the ride home! Joe
I met Bob at Bonneville in 2010 after I saw him cruise by in the car I remembered seeing photos of many times on here. I tracked him down and introduced myself and it felt great to meet this HAMB legend. Over the years he provided 23 car club plaque photos for my website and I'm sorry to hear he's gone.
I wonder if heaven looks like this? .....
"Ahh Fuck It! 80 years is long enough! It was a good run"
Bob called me to say goodbye and it was one of the hardest conversations i ever had. He was lying out his ass when he said that to me! he knew and he knew i knew it.... Bob did what he wanted and said what he felt. I do and am going to miss him for a long time to come.. I love you old man!!!
Rest In Peace BobK
