I was just wondering why 49-54 chevys are called rockstars?
because of mike ness posing with a torque wrench in HRD#1
I've never heard that,,HRP
This is the first time I heard it.
ypu have never heard of the "ROCKSTARS with torque wrenches" ?
it's a car club here on the HAMB.
techinally for 53-54 chevys.but 49-52 are allowed.
wow....im a fuckin ROCK STAR! i didnt even know...are theyre royalites if talked about more then 13 secs?
Now that fuckn funny
Breeder,...don't you have duplicate shoebox Chevs, that'd add up to more dough!
And i still have some stickers left.....................
yeah, but there RP"S....he just parks them here, so i should still get the royalty's i would assume!
i tought they were called belly buttons... hehehehe just kiddin'
Are you sure it was'nt rockscars?
Really? My '53 must feel naked and left out.
,,,, LOVED THAT PICTURE...
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..
is he adjusting his valves with a torque wrench
Tony I have said it before i love your car
At least now i know the real story on being a rockstar!
I never got one.
i like to be called hollywood i have a 1950 chevy and a 1953 chevy
I was a rockstar at one time. Will be again someday
how i can join to rockstars?
i just buying -54 bel air
I wonder what Mike Ness is doing right now?
I'm still trying to figure out who he is...!!!
I think he was in the Monkees. The guy with the wool cap???
I think George Bush started it with his nicknametization initiative.
