Aerosmith + Corvette = Aerovette

And I like this concept...

My 59 was my parents’. Dad passed in 2010 and mom in 2016. Hermn59 was their vanity plate in Illinois (7 character max so “a” was dropped in Herman last name).

Default Big Boeing 767

I am a retired airline pilot, flying all Boeing products...




...727's,(727 shown) and 737's...




...757's, (that's me when I still had dark hair!)...




...and I retired flying 767's internationally throughout Europe, Asia, the South Pacific and South America. I flew for Continental Airlines for 28 years. A very satisfying career, but I love being retired! Never been busier!

So my screen name is BB767. Big Boeing 767

Back in the 90s when I had my restaurant I was constantly being frustrated by government stupidity and the people who work there, so I was constantly complaining, mostly to my close buds and family about it, but, to stop it driving me nutz I would make jokes about it, after ranting a bit. Hence my sister started calling me a curmudgeon, which as you all know is a grumpy old irreverent bugger! She bought me this, the first in a series of books that summed me up perfectly, with some famous curmudgeons of the world. She even got me custom tags with KRMUGN on them. Kerr is my last name so it makes sense.

If you can find this or the other books in the series do it......very funny stuff.

Scotty T, my name is Scott Taylor. It's me It's me It's Scotty T! I also use the same name on numerous forums because I'm not smart enough to remember multiple names.

My first job after the navy was with RCA in NJ. Trying to be helpful, I would contribute little details, facts and figures during meetings. One day my idiot boss was in a really bad mood and after a particularly witty comment he turned to me and yelled, “Hey mr. Encyclopedia, knock it off. You always have to add some stupid little factoid that adds no value.” I became Factoid after that meeting, so please expect stupid little factoids from me regularly.

It's the small arcane facts that make this hobby fun, IMO. And Factoid always seems to have the straight dope, IMO. My moniker, 'GTOguy' pretty much sums it up: first car was a '66 GTO and I've had between 2 and 5 pre- '68 GTO's simultaneously for the past 40 years. I have a late model truck, but the newest car I have ever owned in my life is my '67 GTO. Almost bought a new one in '06 but could not get past the Honda-like appearance.

Well I own a C2 and have for a long time so I used "C2" and then just started typing the letters of my last name until the CF name lookup algorithm allowed me to use that screen name.

Ditto for me like Don, although I'm still working, 45 years come next April.

as for 'Mikado', my favorite class of steam locomotive (2-8-2). '463', one of my favorite narrow gauge(D&RGW) Mikados that I've ridden behind many times.

Mine was just born out of frustration after trying a dozen or so other alternates when I first registered. They were all centered around 1967 Corvette variants, and all were already taken. So, out of that frustration I just tried to come up with something unique involving a couple of contrasting things about me that the system would accept.

Beyond that it’s really pretty much self explanatory!

My ride back when I joined (and was more flexible and more accepting of risk) was a Ducati 916. Duck, of course, is a common nickname for Ducatis.

My name is Leslie and years ago in the hospital as a kid an orthopedic surgeon said "I'm gonna call you Morly-opposite of Leslie"
The 1963 is for my 63 coupe I bought in 1989.
