Cerberus is the Three Headed Dog that Guards the Gates of Hell, by the River Stix, where you have to pay Charon, pieces of Gold (why you see people lay pieces of gold laid on eyes of the dead) to cross. Some suggest Cerberus stops the dead from leaving, others suggest stops some from getting in.....

From wikki: Cerberus - often called the "hound of Hades", is a multi-headed dog that guards the gates of the Underworld to prevent the dead from leaving. Cerberus was the offspring of the monsters Echidna and Typhon, and usually is described as having three heads, a serpent for a tail, and snakes protruding from parts of his body. Cerberus is primarily known for his capture by Heracles, one of Heracles' twelve labours.

my other one is Mayor of Hooville.....which was my first email address back from the AOl/netscape days.... Who doesn't love the Mayor of Hooville!

But then again, Factiod knew that already.....

Proud to be a 4th generation native Californian and pretty sure my family ate on Donner's Pass.

So Southern California + my name Erv = SoCalErv

Back When I had my Corvette Repair shop, I was a Dealer for Trim Parts, they were kind of new back then, so I was known as MrTrim cause they all came to me for the best prices.

Mine is from Harley Earl's '63 conv with a full body stripe. My '67 colors are opposite of his, but laid out the same.

When I raced 1/4 mile NHRA I had a 1965 coupe tube chassis car, S/G and S/P. Car was really nicely done (no modesty here) and always drew a crowd at the strip and in the pits. It was a real body car (before all the aftermarket ones were made) and my friend and pit pal used to always tell people, "yeah it was a really cherry 396 coupe that we cut up" and then watch their expressions. 5311 was my assigned NHRA number. Great Car - Good Times
To OP Great Thread - thanks

My friend’s young son would say Erns when he tried to say my name (Eric). So when I got my 65 a vanity plate I chose Erns 65 (amazingly it was available).

I’ve had the ownership fever for over 45 years when I bought my first, a 65. Been guilty of owning multiple Corvettes at same time - the name “vettepoor” just seemed appropriate, as these toys can create a black hole for our pocketbooks! (Just ask my wife...)

Austin Healey 1953 - Probably my favorite car to drive. Very primitive and a pure driving experience

It is what it is. Not to be confused with the former linebacker from the Chicago Bears. He has had fourteen knee operations; I can still run around a tennis court against guys half my age. I learned the truth from Lenny Bruce: "All your wealth can't buy your health....."

I liked the Blues Brothers and thought Elwood was a cool name. It’s also the middle name of my favorite drummer Neil Peart from Rush, although he spells his with two l’s. I’ve always like the number 13 and it is on one of my favorite WWII planes. A Fockewulf 190 D9 from JV44.

A little “factoid” about this unit is that they flew top cover for the ME 262’s while they were taking off and landing as these early jets had poor throttle response and were most vulnerable at this time. They painted the bottom of the 190’s red with white stripes in hopes that their anti aircraft gunners would know who they were and stop shooting at them. The color photo below was taken by my dad when he went to Ainring, Germany to accept the surrender of the luftwaffe personnel at that base. He was in the Army Air Corp from February 41 to August 45. He took the photo in b&w of course and an aviation historian friend of mine published it in a couple books. It has been reused without permission for profit so many times it’s not funny and now been colorized. The second picture is out of one of my friend’s book to give you a profile of the plane.

Still have the Nixon/Agnew sticker? Funny and rare.

Good thread, zero creativity in my obvious name choice, but I am enjoying hearing you guys spill the beans!
