    First HAMB Drags was 2003 and the Vultures crew all in white with their black belts were there that year. BEST year in my opinion.

    The reason I remember it so clearly as it was the first year I went to B'ville in Big Olds and went straight from Speed Week to the HAMB Drags. Lots of folks from the Salt there that year including Sam and the RR and Eyeball with his roadster I believe.

    I realise that this was not early 500, but should trigger memories, funny in hindsight.

    I can't get it to work, does it work the same on a Mac? Can anybody tell me what my number is. (I know it's not even close to the first 500)

    Didn't Bobbleed chop his shoebox as well and finished the Roadster?

    I went to the second Lone Star Round up the second Hunnert Car Pile Up as well as 1st Gararge sales... at Marty and Sons Autobody

    Went to a couple of thrashes "numnutz chassis build and Ruttencutter engine swap".

    I always wanted to go to thrashes before those because they looked like fun and gave me a chance to put faces to the other HAMBr's names.

  9. If you just click on your name to go to your profile page, read the number at the end of the web addy. That should be your number.

    Ugly as it was, I pretty much built El Mosquito, Mike helped and did a lot of watching, he put a 34 (?) Pontiac sedan body on it with in back windows. Mike's still in Orlando, he had many screen names, they changed often, he's into stand up paddle boarding at the moment, we haven't spoken in two years.

    Shut your pie hole. :) I've been hearing the ole "I miss the old HAMB" crap since 2001. If you were actually around then, you would know that the HAMB today is much more on topic than it ever has been. You used to have to trudge through drama and bullshit just to read the good stuff.

    That guy had an anti-Ryan website for awhile I heard.

    ..........

    My favorite build of all time is prolly Rolf's... Bass has a couple that really get me going to.

    ..........

    My two proudest moments:

    1. When I first realized how much you guys did for HAMBandy. His tombstone brings tears to my eyes today.

    2. When you guys let me quit my day job and do what I love for a living. I still pinch myself.
     
  16. so okay i was wondering who started it all? i was under the impression that you started the hamb, ryan. but youre number 3. Did you start it or did someone else?

    I did a build up of the Packford on the HAMB, I wonder if I can find it?
    I took shitty pics on a disposable camera, waited to get the pics developed, scan 'em and then post 'em, it took hours. The beast is still running strong, looks shitty as ever though.

    lol, that's the spirit! :)

    When I found the HAMB in 2001 I was looking for ideas for a '50's/'60's "push truck" theme. But trucks weren't discussed at the time, so I just lurked until '04.

    Thanks for putting your heart and soul into this place. I renewed my alliance membership a couple weeks ago, so you'll be punching me a new tag soon.
     
  21. Trucks came up quite often. Are you forgetting Marcus' Jimmilac!?!?!?!?!?!:):rolleyes:

    I'm pretty messed up in the head but I don't think it was welding zinc coated steel that made me that way.

    You're not wrong, smoothies came around later.
     
  24. The thing about the early days is that there were less folks around. It was a tighter community. Feels like I know a lot less folks today than then just because the group has grown so much. Regardless it was great then and it's great now. The good ol' days are right now.

  28. Kerry,

    I tryed your link to your build and it did not work. I did find some pictures on the site! I was looking to see if you had any cockpit or rear mounting pics?

    I must compliment you on your build, Brian at King does great work and he did a nice job on his Dragmaster Mark IV build but your build is a great blend of updating the cage to blend in with original design! Very nice work!!!!!!!!!!!

    Have a Great 4th. And again your build was pretty rockin :)
