Kick his ass, Sea Bass!" Seriously, though, I think all of the regulars on Dog's thread join Moe in expressing appreciation to Ryan and all the rest of the editor/moderators who make the HAMB as a whole one of the most worthwhile and enjoyable forums on the internet -- bar none. This being an atypical HAMB thread (understatement), it is to their credit that they gave it a chance, and it really blossomed into a great historical backdrop of society, technology, architecture, fashion and fads, war and its impacts -- the WHOLE backdrop against which the 'rod and custom scene has played out upon. I like to think (and hope) that we don't cause the mods too much grief, in that folks love what the thread's about and, therefore, tend to "self-police." That may ruffle a feather now and then, but for the most part, guys haven't been too rough on noobs and occasional visitors. IMHO, some get off pretty easy. But it all leads to a last point. That said, this thread -- any thread -- isn't perfect. We get reposts, but they never seem to be intentional, unless illustrating a point. And occasionally something slips in that may not fit the hazy definition of "vintage." I got dressed down (rightly) recently for posting a pic for a laugh which, as I soon learned, displayed the names of three movies from the year 2000! I try, but it happened to me, so I try not to be overly preachy to others. Until somebody nails down what vintage really means, we'll get a few pix that, maybe, shouldn't be here. All we can do is try to be diligent. If we err and fail to catch something important, surely a moderator will point out a needed deletion, etc. Guys and gals, the material's been exceptionally fine of late. Keep up the good work. And THANKS to ALL!!!
