    Thanks for starting it and thanks to those who attend and take the pics.

    Man am I happy to hear that.

    That you had fun! That you will return to race! And that the show will go on!

    I went a little bit into further detail in the 46' build thread but this was the first year I finally got to drive something old to the drags and the very first road trip for my dad in his very first old car. He drove ten hours one way and had a blast!

    Here are some random photos since you asked for them~ looks like my wifi went out so this is all I got for ya.

    Check out @travisfromkansas coverage of Saturday at Royboyproductions.com every day this week for way better shots :) IMG_8881.JPG IMG_8886.JPG IMG_8887.JPG IMG_8888.JPG IMG_8894.JPG IMG_8900.JPG IMG_8901.JPG IMG_8903.JPG IMG_8908.JPG IMG_8912.JPG IMG_8913.JPG IMG_8914.JPG IMG_8918.JPG IMG_8925.JPG IMG_8775.JPG IMG_8788.JPG IMG_8798.JPG

    I would sure hate to see HAMB Drags come to a close! I'm glad that you and your team are in for a few more years!

    OK, who is the guy that owns the little yellow roadster in this pic:

    [​IMG]

    Kevin, Dan, and I were at the front gate fighting off the angered entitled from unrightfully parking in the pits when he pulled up. I loved the car so much, that I was like - "You can park wherever the hell you want. Don't care. This car rules. And because of that, you can go wherever you want and do whatever the hell you want."

    He then replied that his daughter and wife were in the modern car behind him.

    Again. I was like, "Don't care. They are part of the package and that car gets y'all anywhere."

    He then zoomed off towards the spec gate with the modern car following. He took them to the spec side, stuffed them both in the roadster, and then came back to the pit side. It was the most considerate action I saw all weekend... and that dude is the perfect HAMB drags attendee. No shit. I would have given him a huge ass trophy if I would have had one. Seriously. Guy rules. If you know him, please tell him.

    ***

    Also... Anyone have pictures of the '59 Corvette that won the Stock Car class? That was my favorite HAMB Drags car in a long time... It was just perfect.

    Dude. Where did you go? I actually went looking for you at one point in the day to bullshit with you and never found you.

  20. I met him at the LaQuinta Friday night, nice guy. He was really jazzed about being able to drive his roadster down to the hotel/drags. Check with Tim, he came down with him ('46) and his dad (Lincoln).

    That would be me sir. Thank you for the kind words about my little roadster! And thank you and everyone involved in putting on the HAMB Drags! I didn't want her modern car in the pits! We had a blast and will definitely be back every year! My favorite part was my son screaming at the top of his lungs "GO MAN GO!!"

  22. Made quite a few laps through...
    Talked the longest with @straykatkustoms ......
    In fact we were standing next to your booth when you jumped on the cart to ride down to get Steve at the far end. Wanted to talk to you too, truck search, how you've been doing, etc.....

    @Ryan I missed visiting with ya. I looked for ya a couple of times but I figured you were busy. I could only spend a couple of hours at the Drags and the time flew by to fast. Hope to see ya sometime later this year.. Thanks for hosting such a kool event, glad to see it will still be going on for a while.
