  1. Happy Birthday Paul!

    When I turned 60 back in June, I was told 60 was the new 40......To me it is just a number & I don't think I act any differently than I did years ago, hope you feel the same! Hot Rods & good women keep us young forever!:D

    God bless

    fixed income.. jeez..
    "don't fix it if it ain't broke"
    well I wasn't broke before
    but now that it's fixed I sure am.

    actually its not so bad,
    and this place pays in something far more valuable than money.

    I'm a relative newbie at 12 years. The Hamb has the best, most active, and friendliest subscribers on the Interwebs, hands down. I suffer withdrawal if I miss a day.

    the real question is how old do you guys want to be when you grow up?

    I may have to grow older but growing up is optional! ;)

    I joined while in high school
    (used to spend my lunch break browsing the HAMB, 'cause we didn't have any "auto-shop" classes or ANY shop classes, we had "computer" class),
    and I graduated in '01, but it says I joined in "'02". Okay, whatever.
    Held ONE HAMB auction for the 1st few issues of "Hot Rod Deluxe"
    Tried to be an "Alliance Member" for a few years... Neglected to renew membership...
    (joined when rich! but poor at the time of renewal,)
    Met several HAMBers over the years, I think most are "BANNED" now,
    Bought a few "HAMB" shirts & decals before there was a store-

    More of a poser than anything else I suppose. Well, let's say "enthusiastic spectator/supporter".
    My 1st car was a '57 Fairlane grandpa gave me (only after teaching me to drive [in 4th grade] the granny-geared, '53 longbed, 3-window Chevy p/u).
    I tried to make the '57 just as cool as he was.
    The HAMB helped at that time!
    Now I have a '58 Edsel... 'n maybe an earlier '20's Tudor... (in pieces,)
    And just as many hopes & dreams....

    20 1/2 years for me- as you can tell I don't post much- but I read every day. Ryan and the moderators keep this place awesome. I joined 6 months before I went to Bonneville- met a ton of HAMBers there and it definitely was the highlight of my trip. Just missed out on being in the first 500 by 25, I'm member # 525.

  13. I'm #276. It says I joined in May 2001, but that was when there was a big crash/reset. Been an Alliance Member since that came into existence. The early, rowdy free-for-all wild west days on here were fun and addictive, way too civilized now (although Ryan might disagree with me on that one) :D I've learned a ton and met some of my closest friends because of this place.

    wow... 18 years for me. I must be getting old. I was even a "notable member" for several years. I bet 90% of those posts were at my job where I only had about 15 hours of work out of the 40 hour week. they have me up to about 30 hours now. those Basterds!

    I seem to be spending more time on the CABE vintage bicycle forum these days. bikes are cheaper and take up less space.

    dang.. never gave it a thought, but apparently I joined in July of 2002, I think Clark introduced me to the HAMB by inviting me to a meet and greet at one of the events.

    met a lot of great people thanks to this place! thanks Ryan.
