Dam' again, I miss all of that TV fun by sitting in my La-Z-Boy and snoozing the evening away by reading a BOOK instead of squinting at that screen.

Happy to see that we have a fresh troll aboard. Sounds like he might be another H.A.M.B.'er that has to get his kicks by coming here and insulting us with drivel

There are a lot of good folks over there at the H.A.M.B. I moderate a Social Group there and we don't like trolls over there any more than you do here.It's a big internet world out there and you are bound to have disagreements and trouble makers just like in life,slamming another group of car lovers who have a different set of interests and values is pointless and destructive in my opinion.We are in the season of " Good Will towards Men" let's take this time to mend fences and share information and interests in hot rodding which is the basis this site was founded on.

I'll go for that Jeff,, great idea,, mend some fences so to speak NOW since you are in some sort of authority over at the HAMB, Could you reinstate me , since I was Banned for sticking up for a fellow HAMBer that was getting blasted from all the great "INSIDER "members at the HAMB because he had a BUTT UGLY scoop on his car( didn't go with the type of car he had) or wasn't traditional by their standards,,,so judged by all the favorite card carrying members of HAMB,, Talk about the "GASTAPO"
On a second thought,, disregard that request for reinstatement,, I don't think I care to belong in that group,,
You do seem to one of the nicer HAMBERS tho,,
NOW Back to bashing the police, that could possably save one of you haters life someday,,

One time, this guy who had a 68 Camaro asked me why anyone would want to make a truck into a hot rod. He thought trucks should never be made into hot rods, only classic cars.

I told him to line his roach up next to mine, and we'll see who makes it to the end of the 1/4 mile first.
He declined, so I took his wife for a ride in my truck. Scared the pee out of her.
When she got out, she told her old man she wanted their Camaro to run like my truck.
That shut him up pretty quick.

Moral of the story is: if it's "quick", it deserves respect!

Of course it's going to be fake. It even mentioned in the disclaimer that some of the incidents were staged or re-enacted to protect certain people's identity.

Those Amish people aren't really supposed to be photographed or filmed. I am surprised any of them went along with doing that show in the first place, ( but those "mafia" guys are Mennonites ), and I guess they don't have rules against photography.
( See, I learn stuff on that show. )

We have some Mennonites in my area, and they mostly keep to themselves. They are all farmers. ( So they get to compete with all the "mormon" farmers out here. )
Sometimes I will see the women out in town at the stores.
They all dress the same. I have nothing against women dressing conservatively. It's a refreshing change of pace from the usual swarm of half-naked tramp-stamped whores I see everyday out in public.

You may do as you like - but as Poncho pointed out, that person was slamming Hotrodders and comparing it to the HAMB within 22 MINUTES of joining. Good will, etc. goes out the window real quick with folks like that. I have no beef with the HAMB site - am a member, never been banned, but seldom post as I do not agree with many of their so called 'traditional' principles, plus including the flagrant use of less then desirable language on public forums

Back to your regular scheduled reality show......
I guess if happiness/success/contentment was measured by cash flow, they might have had their moments. But I doubt Sr is too happy about losing that big building full o' crap. Jessie lost his trophy wench, and I'd chalk most of it up to an overindulgence brought about by believing the hype brought about by the TV exposure. YMMV and that's fine, too.

Very true Bad Rat.... I like Jr as well.. I think his Dad has a hard time facing the fact that Jr is now making his own way... Very sad for a Dad to act like that about his Son... I would be jumping for joy for my son..I will never look at my son as my competition.. NEVER !!!!

I know what your saying.. But you can see it and both of their face's.. Mostly Jr that it was a bad time..I believe it to be true... Jr was hurting from it ...both of them wasn't good enough actors to pull it off..Jr seems more the shy type..A good thing that tells me its real is they are ending the show.. Mikey is the first one to bail.. That tell's me something.. And I bet everyone learned from it.... Now that they have all the money,, It's time to try and put the family back together.. I would NEVER pick the show or money over my family.. Just not worth it..

It might have all been a act for the drama,, but I doubt it,, Sr is such a dominating turd, that everything has to be his way,
you notice he never does any work on those bikes? other than hold something while one of his guys with a few brains bolts it on?
he made wrought iron stuff before they started OCC,
Him and jr built a bike in their basement to start with,,
Sr is just naturally a jerk,, right along side of that Richard fast and loud guy,,,
OCC will probably go down in flames,, and that nice big building will go into foreclosure if it hasn't already,, Jr will move on to the top of the bike building greats, he has already put Jessie down twice,, all his ideas come from inside his head,, he doesn't need a cad machine to design something, he builds it from his vision of what he is seeing inside his mind,

You are correct. The Amish I have met in northern MI don't drive or go on TV, lots of them don't even use electricity!!
