Post anything super old from the org that people may have forgotten about.

I'll go first, with a non-controversial one.

Hmmmmm Tues. July 2004 noon........I had just joined in April. Wasn't online because I would've been working at that time.
My True Story:
My older sister/husband sent me a selfie of them taking a test ride in a newer Corvette. They posted, "Going for a joy ride in our "dream car"
I immediately posted back......" Why dream small, I can put you in the driver's seat of a neon for a fraction of the price".......

U-Pulls are like a box of Chocolates.......you never know what you're going to find...... ;)

We all do. I should break out the database backup and turn it back on. I still have a stack of decals that I had made and never shipped out. I should get around to that.

Just checking in. Crazy how this place is a ghost town now. I have no old screen shots or anything but I'm still owed a long tube header with 1 7/8 primaries, merge collector, ceramic coated for a magnum head. I'm sure some people know what I'm talking about.
Still have my nyg srt which I'm doing something new with this spring. I'll post up when I do.

Yea, I hear ya.....I see you posting occasionally on FB. The things that really killed the .org is the problem/cost of hosting pics and most people going from computers/cameras to cell phones. In fact, I'll bet very few younger people even own, let alone use a computer anymore.

Nostalgia?

Some of the fascinating discussions in The Pits I took part in.

I can't remember the thread, but I recall one where Jim (can't remember his full screen name) was trying to explain that to enter into a contract, you have the ability to comprehend what you're contracting for. Somehow this revolved around NMBLA, and maybe polygamy. He came up with this hilarious treatise NMHDLA (National Man Hunting Dog Love Association) and why it doesn't work. I wish I could find it, or had saved it.

I know there were a few threads that skirted the edge of the .org's rules that I participated in. I was glad they were allowed. Still am.
Red 2002 R/T, named the "Speedy Little Devil" by my oldest daughter, who now drives it more than I do.

Even my henchmen think I'm crazy,
