    Took a while to find, but needed a good laugh again.

    ...you think nothing of an ad in the classifieds that describes a 53 Ford with a "Nice tight box":rolleyes:

    Thanks for dredging this thread up! Everybody needs a good laugh on Friday afternoon.

    You might be a HAMBer if:

    ...you go over to Industrial Chassis for a hot rod fix and El Polacko gives you a bunch of new ideas for car projects. (I ended up adding ANOTHER project car to THE LIST)

    ...you know the names of the dogs of every HAMBer.

    ...you stop at every Saturday morning garage sale you pass to look for tools so you can add to your collection or to find that special tool you need to fix your project.

    ...you schedule your vacation around the April Lone Star Roundup and the August HAMB Drags.

    Come on guys. Keep adding.

    ...sentimental ...

    You might be a HAMBer is you'll go out of your way to help people you only know as a screen name, whether it be physical material help, financial, spiritual or emotional. You're closer to these 64 some-odd thousand "strangers" than you are your own family because you share a common bond in old cars that seems to transcend seats and a steering wheel to dig deeper into the psyche and personalities of like minded individuals who know an old car has a soul and if it could only talk, would have amazing stories to tell.

    .....if you know what "it's" worth!!! Cause someone, somwhere, bought it and had no idea what it is but wants something for it.:rolleyes:
     
  6. You guys are closer to the truth than you may know. Super glue was originaly invented as a non invasive wound closure, ie, instant stitch! And its good stuff!
    So I guess you may be a HAMBer if you have absolutely usless information to share with others......:rolleyes:
    Doc.

    PS, I once fixed one of the Army doctors O/T (Ricer) cars with about $200 bucks worth of sterile superglue, that shit is expencive!:eek:

    ...you refer to everyone by their full HAMB name without skipping a beat in any sentence.

    ...http://jalopyjournal.com/forum is your home page.

    ...you can type 6000 words per minute but still turn wrenches all day long.

    Haha, this stuff is funny, I just reread the whole thread.

    if you see porn written on a thread starter and know its really car pics

    if you see a dude working on a hotrod in his driveway you have never met do a uturn and 30 minutes later you are friends

    if you know how to look through a wood fence at 60mph to see stuff behind it

    if you have custom bent wrenches 'ala torch

    if you rent a booth at a swap meet and you have more parts at the end of the weekend than the start

    if you ever said "it seemed like a good idea at the time"

    If you go to a parts store and the guy all of a sudden doesn't know how to look for a part because he needs a exact make,model,and year.
     
  30. Everbody that comes to your shop thinks that all of your old prize car parts are a bunch of junk except for your H.A.M.B. buddies as they know your stuff is really a treasure >>>>.
