    Please supply your factual information as to your statement.
    Quite a bit of past conversation regarding this.

    I will, once or twice a year, search for Studebaker posts. I quit following and contributing regularly when their leadership's narrative of what "traditional" was diverged from mine.

    I visit the HAMB once and a while.
    Don't post there much anymore.
    Once had a long thread going (that had a lot of work involved to put it together) because putting a 'wing' on the back of a '53 Stude is not traditional. Plonk. It was gone. So was I.
    To be honest. I see Studebigotry here, too.
    I consider it to be the individuals problem, and not my problem.
    Some people are triggered easier, I guess.

    Yeah, Ryan is kind of a pr*ck. He banned me once because I pointed out a problem with the website. After he fixed it, I was back on under another name.

    Could be worse. Ever been on YellowBullet? No mods at all. It's like downtown Chicago at night on a weekend. Their motto is "Where the weak are killed and eaten". They are not kidding.

    H.A.M.B. hates any Jeep product. Once we had a very nice thread going on Hot Rodded 1948-1950 Jeepster roadsters. First car that I ever drove all by my lonesome, a '48 with a Edelbrock tri-power equipped 365 Caddy.
    Ryan killed and purged the thread because Jeeps are not 'traditional'. Just overlook the fact that they were receiving engine swaps literally from day one, and ran on the nations drag-strips for decades starting in the early 1950s. ...But a '61 Econoline, or a '64 Rambler Classic 4 door is 'traditional'?
    I complained. Received a P.M. threatening to ban me if I mentioned the subject again.
    So I didn't. Here is not there.

    They have some excellent builds on the HAMB. The COE car hauler by a builder in Amsterdam. A Willys that was a four door wreck built into a Old School dragster by a guy in LA, know as Kev. And the Chrysler built from a junkyard car called "Rusty" are just some examples. I can post some links if anyone is interested. A memorable one is the guy that built a Texaco Station on his property, way cool.

    This is all pretty funny.

    If you read the rules, a Viper engine is...not really in the scheme of the HAMB..!

    Like Chris says, I log on almost every day and while looking for new posts that MAY interest me, there are a few old, long posts that I read with every new post.
    I have no problem posting there, and mostly, don't get crap for it..! I actually get quite a few "likes"...over their.

    I logon everyday at the HAMB, and invariably find that most of the folks posting are very old car savvy, and are nice enough. Like every forum I've ever visited (including this one), there are buttholes, self-appointed bouncers, and trouble makers. They do have their focus - on traditional (pre-65) hot rodding, so yes - Viper motors and so on are anathema. They totally discourage rat rods (even the name) and discourage trashy build techniques yielding unsafe cars. Believe it or not, some of the diehards over on the AACA forum respect the knowledge of the HAMB bunch, even if they don't all like hot rodders. And, yes - it's busy. I have to scroll through an average of 10 pages of new posts when I visit. It's not my favorite, but it does have its place - and doesn't deserve (or match) the bashing it received in this thread. Studebaker guys get respect over there - and some of our bunch is there often (Jeff Rice, Joe Roberts, and others). So, there.

    I went to the Hamb one time, and asked about putting a Viper engine in my Buick Roadmaster. Boy did they ever give me crap about that. They aren't anything about hot rodding. They are only about there own little clique. Never been back and they can keep it.
    I also asked about what they thought about a build using Corvette suspension pieces, and a Packard like torsion-bar system. All I got was it shouldn't be done, and my ideas were crap. I don't need their BS replies. I get plenty everywhere else.

    Come on, MOST of the cars on the HAMB are fairly nicely done cars.
    You need to look at more than one thread..! Just looking at the rat rod cars and calling all of the HAMB badly done cars isn't even remotely fair. Many would put some of our Stude's to shame.
    Hell a couple of my cars are up on the HAMB board, fine upstanding examples of Studebakerdom.

    Take a look at some of the "cars" being built by the posters on the HAMB and see if you want to hang out there. Tops chopped so that windows are 2" high, very questionable suspension mods, downright dangerous steering setups, sunvisors made from saw blades, scary stuff, some.
    Although there are sites with even scarier stuff being "built".
