    Welcome to the HAMB, great cars with stories to go with them. I like the backgrounds in the photos, landscapes not everyone gets to see. Bob

    Yes he was out in the snow coating his first car, who knew we would still have it all these years later...that is probably why though, he loved that thing from day one.

  20. I love primering outside we all should paint a car in the driveway on the same day and then see what the satellite says.

    So glad I saw this, I pulled this wallet pic offline to restore it for him somewhat, still in the process, but for got what page I got it from. Don’t know if I can do anything with this as far as what looks like trophies, I can clean the rest a little. Please let him know.

    Nothing wrong with the past, my Dad wasn't into cars, not very many nice memories of him. Other than beating on me or Mom he was basically a SB. Me and my best friend used an old barn that a guy didn't use for a garage, no heat, but we had a blast building hot rods. A lot of great memories doing crazy crap with him. That wallet pic is priceless.

  25. Great stuff - thanks for posting...really love the red line tires - kinda a Hot Wheel thing as well....forget the naysayers....owners built the way they liked....and not so much what was popular in the future !
