Just my name. For some reason lots of people call me Dick also though... I got the Happy Bear not too long ago and I thought he looked friendly and looks like hes reaching his hand out to shake so I put him up there.

I was born the day Bullitt was released in theatres, Oct 17 1968. Oh ya and I have a 68 GT FB replica. Dave
My brother was shipping out to Vietnam and my mom and I went to San Fran to see him off and the movie Bullitt was showing. We went and then drove the streets where they shot the chase scene. How much fun can you have in a rental car?? Happy to say my brother came home in one piece...

It's what I collect, going on (21) years with Holiday now. The Erickson family started Erickson stations in the 20's, then we split into current day Holiday, and Freedom Valu Centers. All still privately owned by the family. They also own about half of the Gander Mountain chain.

Since I was the first member, I took the user name of Oldgas. Funny thing is when the database was converted from a flat file to MySQL in the big upgrade in 2009, I somehow lost the member number of #1 and became #2031.
The old car hobby is what got me into Petroliana so mine was a carry over from another Forum where I am a member dealing with old trucks and originated due to my 1937 GMC truck that I own. It was a toss up between that and another user name I have of Bowtie34 which was for my 1934 Chevrolet; if I had to do it all over again I think I would liked to come up with some “snappy” gas and oil related name, but just too much work as this point to change. The Avatar is a picture of an old rusty grill shell off of a 37 GMC truck.
