  15. Let me clarify. Way back when....7 years about......there were bunches of us with 54s and such on the HAMB. About that same time the interview with Mike came out in the first HRD. Someone coined the phrase "Rockstars with Torquewrenches" for all of us with 53-4 Chebbies. It was a tongue in cheek way of identifying all of us on the HAMB that love these cars. . It has never been a real club. Soon after, any thread started about these cars got the Rockstar tag.......similar to the Olds guys using Rocketeers here on the HAMB.......it was a way to know the thread had something all 54 guys would like we later addded the lil brothers 49-52 Chevys

    We got real goofy when someone did some artwork...sorry I forget who originally did it. Then the late justSteve tweaked the art and I had stickerguy do up a bunch of stickers......yes, there is one on my 54 and others. Somewhere in the moves over the last couple years I saw some left over tags..........they are here somewhere.

    Here's the sticker...on the vent window..
    got it from Tman right after i joined here, stuck it on and just left it..
    I think it's funny because i have had people ask what the hell is RWT...
    most that ask have no clue who Mike Ness even is..
