Hello Everyone!

Looks like there's still a few folks on here from long ago!

I still have my Hudson projects, but  they're just sitting for the last few years - so absolutely nothing new to report on those :( 

I'm hoping things change up this year as I'm getting ready to launch a new website project and will have my nights and weekends back after almost 2 years of working my programming day job..then programming 2-6 hrs a night plus 15-20 hrs every weekend...it's been a long haul, but hopefully will set me up for some success later this year.

Just thought I'd say Hello and don't be surprised if I start lurking out here again and get caught up on everyone's projects.

Dan

    Hi Victor!

    Sadly Rambo passed along in March 2014. 

    He was an awesome companion for 14 years and not a single day goes by I don't miss him.

    I got another lab, Maddy on Craigslist just a year before Rambo passed. She's an awesome fun dog..but no Rambo, he was pretty special.

    Hello KustomKreeps!

    I've got a 49 Hudson Commodore Custom project, 454/TH400 that's got 99% of the fab work done, total bare bones sheet metal now, just missing the $$ for parts to put it back together.

    I took a lot of time designing fabrication to keep the original Hudson front sub-frame and suspension.



    Someday this is what I hope the Rambos Ride project becomes...




    I also have a 51 Hornet Rat Rod Project that's midstream on a modern fuel tank replacement, and brake upgrade.

    LOL - I've never seen a hairy seal before!

    Rambo loved the snow..he'd run as fast as he could and lick the snow at the same time.

    Maddy finally got into playing in the snow at Christmas, I think she was channeling a little of the Rambo dog!

    Thanks again everyone!

    You guys are getting me motivated again - hopefully this year I can turn things around. I'd like to get my Hornet rat-rod rolling for the Summer at least.

    Peace.
