thanks guys. anyone ever thought of writting a club history section for the site? if no one wants to, i can. writting is kinda my thing. all i need is any aditional information about the origins, early years and major contributers that may not be listed here.

tom, you were a moderator for quite a while, right?

also, the "you know youre a taurus owner if..." list was hilarious. i was seriously sitting here in work shaking b/c i was laughing so hard.

1995 Taurus SHO MTX w/Quaife - 75,000 miles (wrecked, but will be rebuilt)
1988 F-350 460 C6 Crewcab Dually - 129,000 miles
2001 GMC Yukon XL Denali (wife's) - 180,000 miles

Remember, remember the Fifth of November.

I was a mod for a few years and stepped down. I wasn't on very often and I enjoy being a regular member again so I can participate in, well, tomfoolery Ed (EDIII) took over and has been doing a fine job.

I hope some other, older members step in because I'd actually like to fill in the holes in the history. It's been a great ride.

Who, what the...? Me, do a fine job? You been inhaling too much SHO rebuild fumes Tom...

As for history, I still think of myself as a newb here. Even though I have been here over 2 years, 2 presidents, and 3 board changes...

Damn James, but you are on the ball. That's it, alright. Can you find Jeramie's silver and bra'd 2G with the Ford decals lighting 'em up?

Ed, you're not a newb in my (mildly deranged and occasionally hiccuping) mind.

If you're a newb, Ed, what does that make me?

I've been around since 02 and I haven't even made 700 posts. I'm teh newb!

I actually joined shortly before the forums jumped over to the Invision board system the first time. But I'm mostly a chatroom *****... everyone knows me in there!

His was a pretty modded Vulcan. You can just brake-torque the engine for a second and sidestep the brake pedal.

Let's keep this on topic here though

Cool.. Just curious.

I've only been a member on this forum for a couple of months, but im on it Monday-Friday from 11:45-2:50 pm daily during my tech class, and sometimes at home when im bored and not out driving my bull. I've kinda always wondered where this whole thing started and i really enjoyed reading this topic. I LOVE YOU TCCA!!!!!!!!
ha.. im an idiot...
