    When that day comes and the opportunity arises, it will be my pleasure. Thanks for your comment

    HotrodA- I definitely hope you make it next year, with or without a car. Thanks.

    John (Binger) - you're welcome as always - great seeing you and Chelle again. Thanks.

    A great comparison shot showing a '30 Roadster and a '31 Cabriolet - the later owned by Larry Jones (@winduptoy ). This is early in the morning before anyone ran, making these two the first in line.

    I thought this was great - 4 people fully occupying this Model A in the staging lanes. I wish I would have had the time to get back in position to see them actually in motion.[/QUOTE]

    This car took many people up the hill, including a lot of "mature" ladies and gentleman. They were basically hot lapping the course, with a change out of riders each time around. All of them appeared to be having multiple loads of fun.

    Met and visited with Jeff at our hotel. we were pretty much neighbors. The story on the truck is pretty amazing. It is really the story of two trucks that started with him buying an all original RPU in very good condition but the engine was stuck. He said it took very little to get it freed up and it ran like a dream. If he is on the HAMB, he should tell the rest of the story...

    Thanks for the lowdown on that Makr.

    You're very welcome Johnny - thanks for your comments on them.

    Mark - did you intend to also include your actual drawing as well?

  12. I wasn’t sure you would want me to self promote nor hi-jack your thread so I posted my crappy photo instead.
    I can post it if you want but only with your blessings to do so. (after bowling.) LOL!

  19. This is last years... it is sneaking in under Dam’s radar because I just got back from bowling, which means I’ve had a few cold ones and allowed my scrupples wall down... ( insert *BuRp!* sound effect.)

    Thanks Mark for both of those - I know how it is when you back from bowling (my league night is tomorrow).
    Many of you who have not been to the Hill Climb may not realize that it also has a car show of sorts with it as well.

    1935 Ford Panel with windows and, I assume, back seats added. Early morning the day of the race it rained a tiny bit.

    Thanks for the great pics Dan! Was a pleasure meeting you.
    What a trip to remember! Such a great event put on by awesome people! It was a long trek from Buffalo NY, but we will be back! My newlywed wife and I had so much fun in our 1931 Roadster!
