It seems only polite to introduce myself. I've lurked here every once in a great while and finally joined because of the vintage tool box thread. It was too cool and awe-inspiring, and I totally get it. In any case, while I don't own a car that would make me a card carrying HAMB'er, I think I share much of the mentality and affinities. Ironically, there was a time when I was 12-16 that I think I could've become a life-long member, lusting after and almost owning a long list of vintage cars and trucks, but steered away by my father and old brother. I still remember pleading to get my grandpa's saved-from-being-a-chicken-coop '53 F100, a $100 well patina'd '50 Ford 4 door, an abandoned late '50s Olds hearse, or a $500 '58 Fury. The list goes on, but I ultimately ended up swayed towards musclecars and euro trash. But as I say, I surely share the mentality and affinities and since joining I find the desire to get my hands on something that would fit right in here. Of course, my wife would kill me... but you only live once, right? Thanks for letting me hang with the cool kids.
