I was building a 27 steel t-bucket and had started collecting parts for a new age rod (you know,the basic SBC powered, Dophin gauge, new crappy wheels and tires sort of thing). Then someone at Austin Speed Shop told me about the HAMB. I lurked for 2 years and got a little education! Joined up and have enjoyed trad. flathead rodding (flatties for me) ever since! Thanks, Ryan and crew!
