    Been checking out this site off and on for a while but just recently registered, so just wondering what the OFFICIAL HAMB vehicles would be. Thx. Later.
     
  2. 1965 it the hard rule.

    If its really really cool or has history there's some fuzzy ness.

    Straight from the boss. (Ryan)

    The HAMB is dedicated to spreading the gospel of traditional hot rods and customs to hoodlums world wide. That’s right – TRADITIONAL. If you've come here to discuss anything other than Hot Rods or Customs built in a style representative of 1965 or before, you've come to the wrong forum.

    Even if you have come here for all the right reasons, don’t expect posting to be easy. We don’t cater to new fellas unless they show a dedication to spreading this tradition of ours first. We welcome young, old, foreign and all – but our original members and our staff expect a certain level of respect and an effort to keep things true and on topic.

    Maybe you are an old fart with a past. Maybe you are one of the guys that started this tradition we cherrish. We built this place for you and your posts mean the world to us. Hop on and introduce yourself. This is your board.

    Still reading? Then you must be cut out for this, right? We recommend you read some more. Check out all the forums, develop an understanding for how things work around here, learn the “do’s” and “do not’s”… The key to a happy HAMB newbie is to understand the joint BEFORE you begin posting.

    We have very few written rules here on the HAMB and that’s the way we like it, but we won’t hesitate to dump disruptive posters, ego freaks, or shit talkers. We are all here to learn and teach - please keep your other perogatives on the sidelines.

    ................................

    Rules:
    1. No profanity in subject lines.

    2. No political/religious/racial posts at all. No exceptions.

    3. No Porn.

    4. We cover traditional '65 and older American cars only. All other threads will be deleted. We don't cover rat rods, muscle cars, mustangs, or VWs.

    5. No commercials posts.

    ................................

    Guidelines:
    1. If in doubt, don’t post it.

    2. Stay on-topic and relevant with your posts… OT posts aren’t generally appreciated by our membership.

    3. Gotta easy question? Try using the search function first.

    4. While we don't require "introductions," some members do appreciate them so it might be a good idea for you to do one here. Just introduce yourself and let folks know what you are all about.

    5. Please do your best to post your thread in the appropriate forum. For an index and explanation of each forum, please see this thread.

    ................................

    Why Was My Post Deleted?
    1. Did you confuse the H.A.M.B. with Facebook? That we are not... Save your personal strife, random observations, and rants for your choice of social media - it doesn't belong here.

    2. Did you post a "pray for me" thread? We don't do religion here. Join this group instead.

    3. Did you disrespect another user? We believe verbal battles through the internet are bullshit and as such, we delete all that we can. Further more, if you can't express an opinion without bagging someone else's, maybe you should rethink the validity of your opinion?

    4. Did you disrespect the H.A.M.B. or a member of its staff? Feel lucky that all you walked away with is a deleted thread or post. This is the quickest way to get your account deleted.

    5. Was your thread something that has been covered over and over again? Try searching next time. We've had countless threads through the years on bias tires vs. radials, the definition of "traditional," and many other topics. We don't need to rehash what the bulk of us already know.

    And, most importantly:

    6. Was your thread about something other than traditional hot rods and customs? Aside from a few "sidebar" topics that interest the staff here, we don't allow off topic posts. Your definition of "traditional" might differ from ours. That's fine. However, this is our forum and it's our definition that the forum is run off of.

    OK boss, got a question.....You said anything American made before 1965
    But what about Dueced Up having a Triumph, or my Morris van gasser. How about all the Anglia, Thames panel trucks or Austin and Fiats??
    Not trying to start crap.............just what a clarity.:confused:

    Well a little intro here. I'm almost 50, not saying what side of 50 that is.
    Growing up my first ride was a '65 Falcon which I kept for about 20 yrs till it pissed me off then sold it. I was a lowrider for a while with that Falcon on Truspokes then changed up and sprayed it turquoise with some original moon hubcaps.

    Always like the stance of lowered and slammed cars and I drop just about everything I get, I mostly like cut/trimmed springs to lower.
    I don't like FWD cars.

    Most times I get a car for how it will look dropped or slammed then deal with running issues.
    My first experience with body/paint was at about 16 and been doing it when needed ever since. I liked the smell of spraying lacquer back in the day. I can TIG weld but mostly I gas weld what's needed on my projects.

    Always got projects going on whether they're trucks, cars, motorcycles, bicycles, etc.
    My oldest rides as of now are '65 slammed 4 dr Benz, '66 dropped Econoline with flipped axle and a '67 raised F100 with a 390FE in it.

    So nothing I've got at this time will be posted here. I'm always on the lookout for a '60 Ford wagon or a '40s COE tho.
    So I know the shit I need to know for what I have. I DO like this forum for the no bullshit attitude so I'm here to stay. Later.

    It's also been stated that SOME, makes, models and years, get a pass.
     
  9. Cars that aren't muscle cars (IE the Mustang) or VWs, that were built more or less the same in later years as in '64, get a pass. Funny cars and drag racing seems to get a pass too, but by '70 or so a lot of the floppers were a fiberglass body over a chassis with a Hemi anyhow.
     
  10. The 66 Econoline will probably get a pass since it looks like a 65. HRP

    No drama required here but how in the world could you be on the HAMB since 2007 and still think your Morris Minor Gasser is not accepted? Dude that is one killer car...I want to see more!

    Won't find many MBs on here, but a custom '65 sedan could fit. The baby Ford Volvos do. Is there a good foreign car thread on here?

    Thanks guys......I've had the little Morris Z van now over 35 years. We take it to some of the local shows but there's not a lot of room to haul things on a long trip. The picture of the van in Yellow was when I first saw the thing for sale back in the 70's. It was love at first sight.:eek:
