  1. He got banned. It's too bad. I really liked his posts. Maybe there was a misunderstanding? I know he wouldn't do anything on purpose.

    I didn't like everything Steff did but enjoyed fotos that I would have never been able to see. My only beef with this topic is the "new car ads". They had it own topic which I liked but everyone seemed to put them here.....

  3. I posted a few "new car ads" in it's own thread but didn't see much activity there so I gave up on it.

  4. I got a PM from his wife. She said that he had got banned. I'm sorry to here this , as he put a lot of work into posting some great stuff on here for us. Everything will never be perfect for everyone on here. But I do hope that he can come back. She said he really likes the HAMB, and will miss it. WE, {I }will miss him too. Ron...

    Steff has been banned??? Crap, that is just a big-assed bummer. I really enjoyed his stuff. I sure hope that this can be worked out.

    Yeah, a friend of his contacted me privately, asking if there's any way he could be reinstated.

    That person said that Steffen means absolutely no harm here, and is somewhat devastated because of this. They said he promised not to repeat whatever action it was that got him banned, and I told them I'd put in a good word for him.

    So, should the mods read this and decide to give him a second chance, I'm sure he'd be eternally grateful...I know we would be, because he brought some great images to this thread.

  13. I agree too. I would stake my own reputation on him. If he gets booted again you can boot me too.

    Looks like Riverside, looks like turn 7. That's where my father liked to park. He had a 58 Corvette. My last name is Immler. License plate is MLR. That's the way you used to get personalized plates. Wonder if that's his car?

    Que Twilight Zone music!
    I just recieved a middle of the night phone call from Steffan Jobst from Germany all apologetic and apparently thinking I have something to do with his being banned here.
    Yes guys, he got my number on the web and called me unsolicited at 1:30 am from Germany.. He seemed to think I was "angry" over some comment he made about the Garlits Dart pics I posted.I don't even SEE any comments. Kind of CREEPY calling a total stranger halfway across the planet to ramble on about the HAMB don't you think?
    For the record HAMB pic posters, I have NO IDEA WHY, WHEN or WHATEVER got him banned, frankly had no idea WTF he's calling me for. Still don't. Not much to say to him!
    So, I have no juice, power or say about banning anyone or ANY HAMB business! Or "reinstating" anybody!
    I just want to post , if people like my posts great, if they don't ..I DON'T CARE!
    Call me mystified, Don't know a F'n thing about it! Nor do I really care, he had SEVERAL warnings, he was just one of the guys that wanted the HAMB HIS own way.
    Jeeeeeez, WTF NEXT? Leave me out of the drama!

    I got that same email that Ghostcruiser got - wonder how many of us did?
    I'm careful with emails from folks I don't know, and it had an attachment I did not open.

    upload_2017-8-12_4-0-36.png upload_2017-8-12_4-0-54.png Pierpoint Landing was a sportfishing, eating and entertainment complex located at the end of Pier A in Long Beach, California, and what is now Pier F. In operation from 1948 to 1972, it was at one time the largest sportfishing operation in the world, attracting two million anglers annually.


    My dad’s favorite place was Pierpoint Landing in Long Beach. It might be that we lived about 10 minutes away on the Westside of Long Beach, but it was his love of all types of fishing. He was not a jetty fishing person, although, in San Pedro, when he was little, he did a ton of breakwater fishing at the old Brighton Beach jetties on Terminal Island, nearby.

    His love was deep sea fishing with small and really big rigs for all sizes of fish. He told me of catching large Albacore on a tiny trout pole and reel. He also told me of a large Swordfish with his super, thumb-size, thickness pole and huge reel that took both hands to crank for us little guys.

    In 1960, he graciously gave up ½ of the Rumpus Room so we could build our 40 Willys. But, up until then, all of his fishing gear took up ½ of that rear yard building. Pole racks, cabinets full of reels of all kinds, and a workbench to rewind/rebuild poles and flies for trout.

    So, did he go to Pierpoint Landing? If he did not like our family so much, he probably would have lived at Pierpoint Landing. Every week, (on his day off) he went out on a deep sea fishing trip. Our involvement was to go to the east end of Catalina on one trip for White Sea Bass and Albacore. 6 foot swells, a huge current, and a large fishing boat that went up and down did not make a 5th grader feel too good on that trip. But, the fishing was the best.

    On another trip out of Pierpoint Landing at 2 am, we went around the island to the other side to catch some tuna. That trip was much better, as we caught a ton of fish. The sight of Pierpoint Landing when returning to Long Beach was a wonderful ending to any fishing trip. It is too bad that this place is gone.


    When our family wanted to go for an outing or drive, Pierpoint Landing was the spot. It was located at the mouth of the LA River near where the Queen Mary is currently located. The little stores kept my mom interested, the fishing tackle shops kept our dad drooling over the new stuff.

    My brother and I loved the snack bars and hot dog stands. When we were finished with the hot dogs, climbing all over the big jetty rocks, chasing the big crabs was the next activity. As simple as a place can be with one
    as an attraction, fishing, this place was a destination for a lot of families in the So Cal area.

    In our hot rod cruising days, late at night, this was a nice ocean view parking area with a great view of Long Beach and points South… dark, secluded, and eerie...
