Ryan, I just wanted to say thanks for 10 great years. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long since I got the nerve up, stopped being a lurker, and joined this “little” community. I’ll never forget that first week. After some good natured hazing by SamIyam, Nads, and Fatassbuick, I was in. Luckily TrailerEd, aka Traileredcarssuck joined up at the same time and diverted a lot of the flak with his intro. Ironically T-Ed was one of the first HAMBers I would meet in person and is still a friend. In these 10 years I’ve met a lot of other great folks, learned a lot, bought and sold some cool parts, and been to some new places I never would have went without it. Everyone needs to experience the Drags at least once. Lucky for me I’m fairly close and have made more than I’ve missed. I do miss the intimacy of the earlier years and hanging out at the Ramada….even in a downpour standing under the awning, it was a blast. But the new larger scale Drags is still a must attend. People joining today just don’t realize how much the HAMB has changed. The blazing speed at which new posts are created. The talent (and lack of) that grace the screen. And of course the differences in opinions that come with it all. I’ve heard it said before that it used to be like visiting a friend’s small garage with just a few buddies, checking out a couple of cars. That’s a good analogy. Now it’s more like going to an event, seeing dozens of friends, and there being more cars then you have time to look at. Both ways are good. The hardest part is to imagine what my life and the current hot rod scene would be like without the HAMB. Probably not near as much fun.
