This thread is probably one of the best I have ever seen or participated in on Old Gas. There has been no conflict of interest, just plain and simple shop talk as the site was designed to provide to its members. I think a big thank you is deserving of DB for starting it. And lets not forget Jim Potts as this great petro site would not be possible without him.
With today being Christmas and a time for giving...when is there a better time to say THANK YOU JIM for a great site, THANK YOU DB for the post, and THANK YOU to ALL the OLD GASSERS who contributed.

MERRY CHRISTMAS to ALL!

Just my name. Actually, when I joined the first time years ago I used my first and last name, and then life got in the way and was off line for a few years, and when I came back I didn't have any of my old information from when I was on here before. I thought of trying to get ahold of Jim and seeing if I could retrieve my old info, but instead I just re-registered using my first two initials and last name. I like to keep things simple.
Ken.

For those Members,who don't have your "given" name in your profile, I ask again that you add it... Non Members are not able to access your profile. So that should not be a reason, to not add your "real" name to your profile...

And atleast for me, I like to use someone's name when I am sending or receiving a PM and/or email...


Bob's right on here, It would be nice to at least have people's first name.

Thanks for starting this Dick

I like hotrods and Harleys. But for some reason or another I've also always had a thing for German cars, more specifically BMW's and Porsche. When the day comes that I finally get that special German Auto my license plates will say DASFST1. It's kind of my way of keeping a goal right in front of me.

Dick as so many have already said - Awesome Idea for a topic!

I just chose it randomly. I was born in 1995 so that has some effect on it. I should choose something better fitting for what I love to do! Braden Splichal

I joined old gas not too long ago, and couldn't come up with a catchy name. I have a '72 Plymouth Scamp, so that became my user name.

Good to see members posting names.

My first oldgas.com name was blackteetexacogold, from the hillbilly song (Granny & Jed etc...) It took too long to type so I asked Jim if I could change it. Went with blackT. I've always loved the star logo with the black surrounding the green T. The colors red, green, black & white together do it for me. ; )My father owned a Texaco Station and I worked their with my five older brothers all the time. The station was sold in 1976 do to my father's passing. The station still sits in a neighborhood in Ann Arbor Mi. Branded Citgo now. Member Dave ? Tank driver from Homer, MI. tells me he used to deliver gas to the station a long time ago.

Started collecting around 1998 and stopped around 2010. I miss it sometimes.

Thanks to Jim Potts and Dick

Doug

The name you're looking for would be Dave Rowlison Doug. My grandfather and great uncle were truck drivers locally and Dave knew them both. It's a small world sometimes!

Back in 1970 my partner Vic Cecelia and I opened a "Speed Shop", building and racing drag cars and selling parts. We always liked Pontiac's so that was our race car of choice. We did well enough that John DeLorean the head of Pontiac and father of the GTO took notice and gave us a 1973 TA Firbird, engines, parts, etc. to race in SS/JA. The "Bad Birdie" went 11:02 with a turbo trans and Qjet carb.
That led to us racing for Pabst Blue Ribbon beer in the "Pabst Charger" AA/FC with with one of the best wrenches in drag racing at the time, Charlie Proite.
Yes we did race with "5 quart" Don Raleigh in NJ back in the day.
That's where "OLD RACER" came from.

I worked in the engine built shop for TRD (Toyota Racing Development) in Costa Mesa, CA. We built the engines for the "OPEN WHEEL" CART cars, then for the IRL and most recently of course NASCAR. My first name was "RACER" but then I saw "OLD RACER" and didn't want to blemish his name so I changed it to "OPEN WHEEL" because that's the racing I like the most.
