  2. I have such a profound respect for the Aussies and their Hot-Rodding tradition. Considering all of the hurdles they have to clear to even have a Hot-Rodding tradition, they have a tremendous amount of passion and persistence. As far as you are concerned Ryan, we still love you here in Maryland and you're always welcome to come back anytime. Just try to behave yourself!!!:D;)..........Don.

    I'm so happy you got that reference! I still think of that weekend at the Jalopyrama and the aftermath... and smile. Too much fun.

    Cool - maybe it should be be "united we sit", as in sitting behind the wheel of our rides

    Really like that photo of the "Hop Up" decal next to the kangaroo decal - gives it an entirely new meaning.

    That chapter of living vicariously through your road trips seems like yesterday.

    We are fortunate that our overseas rodding family shares views into their activities. Builds, reliability runs, hill climbs, etc. I often think they are doing traditional hot rodding better than we do. It takes more dedication what with import taxes, construction rules, limited parts availability and so on. Its almost like they looked at the latest pastel billet street rod trends and said "no thanks mate, we like our old rods just fine"

    An eloquent summation of a powerful concept, @Ryan... well done, and thanks for all the adventures. Pondering it now (looks at wrist watch)... we're prolly overdue for the next one.

  11. So different, yet they get it almost more than we do! Met some great Aussies through the HAMB. I see Swifty and his son Corey in the pictures. Had them over for diner when they were in the states. :cool: That would be a trip of a lifetime. Just not so fond of all the snakes.:eek:

    When I first started writing for the car books in the early sixties, Tex Smith told me it was OK to make an extra copy of the material and submit it to the magazines down under. That was before Petersen had a three page legal doc that I had to sign before I got a check.
