    Without pressing any buttons on your mouse,place your cursor on your HAMB name and leave it there.
    Now look at the very left bottom of your screen and you will see the following:
    The last number is YOUR HAMB number.Move your cursor and it disappears.

    I don't think these numbers include the pokey-mon board (spl?):D Remember that? I miss officerspellcheck. My number doesn't reflect the time I joined the HAMB...only that I was one of the first few to log on and join the new HAMB board. People that had a life may have been later to the party. I was suffering withdraw symptoms when the new board became available.
  3. I had a HAMB account back about a decade ago and posted a few times, but got too busy with work and didn't log on for a long time. Plus, the drama wasn't my thing. If I want drama, I'll hang out with my wife and her sisters for an hour.

    Then the server crashed and I didn't get a new account until 2008, but I'm still inspecting grenades.

    So....I might've been an original HAMBer......don't really know for sure.....don't really care.

    Just a Johnny come lately at 2842. I hadn't thought about it in a long time but I got my ass spanked by the "old" HAMB cops when I first came on. I made a smart-assed comment on some thread about what kind of late model SUV people drove and got I dogpiled. One person in particular called me everything but a white man. I apologized for crossing any lines and also said that if anyone ever talked like that to my face, one of us wouldn't be getting up. That was the end of that, I started paying attention and never got cursed again, much.

  20. why? people get their undies in a knot because of their post count, quantity or age does not make the man....

    Conder, where are you?


    and since it wasn't illustrated, just for refference...the love/hate relationship, Mike/otownrumbler( and a number of other titles..:rolleyes:)


    and for desert...a pic & notation that still makes my heart flutter...



  21. Hmmm...#31, who knew?
  22. Somehow heartwarming to see my old blown Hemi '29 on the HAMB . . . drove that car on the streets of L.A. 25 years ago, just the way you see it here. All the Street Rodders with their bright red Billet Rods were laughing at me. Guess I was "traditional" too soon . . .
  23. That car and photospread made an impression on me, thanks man! Real hotrods are never timeless.
  24. Ditto, have had a enlarged copy of this pasted on my wall for over a decade, makes me smile everytime I see it....that and reading how Tammy enjoys making her own clothes and adding to her teacup collection...;):D

    Awesome car, time stands still,

    Drewfus. It is odd you posted a pic of ElMosquito...I was just thinking about it today. I actually saw ElMosquito live and in person and drank beer with Otownrumbler/redneckmike/NadsandIfightlikegirls or whatever Mikes name is these yes, the car and the person did in fact, exist.

    It still amazes me how many folks from 10 years ago still hang out and post on a regular basis...

    See ya, -Abone.
