Someone asked one of our new members about their screen name & how they chose it. I think that is an interesting topic.

I am longtooth.
Years ago when I got my 1st email account I remembered reading the saying about old people being long in the tooth.
I thought it sounded good & chose it.

My name on all the other forums I frequent is 2TransAms...since I sold 'em,I now have zero Trans Ams! I'll have another one someday though...and I'll buy it already restored! They say to restore a car you need tools, time, money, and know-how... I only had the first one.

My pop was in the retail business for 30 years and was one of the last real old school 'horse trader' merchants.
He could sell snow to the eskimos, and he'd deliver it Saturday night at 10 pm if that's what you wanted!:biggrin:

I lost him back in '83. His name was Jack and many had referred to him as TJ, so I use it as sort of a tribute to him.

I think we did this once before on here didn't we...

Anyways...Ridgerunner is a term used to describe those onery old coots that used to run moonshine down here in my neck of the woods....My Grandad was one of those onery old coots, and yes, I ran a few loads myself...but that was another life.

I have since moved on to a legal means of making a living.

:bravo:Trader I really like the way you honor your Dad w/ that.

Ridge I knew you had sold me where yours came from but I did not remember it being done in one of these.

I think Sarge is fairly self evident. On active duty I was Sarge after the service I was Sarge to all who knew me, and now that I've hooked up with the reserves, I'm sarge again. Pretty easy huh? The only other screen name I have is SRT1 on one other board. Other than that, I'm always Sarge.

ZeroTA - I have to admit, I really thought it was an anti porn statement. Glad to know what it stands for though. Also glad to know you're 2transams on the other board. I used to have a 1982 Camaro Z28 that I had totally redone. EVERYTHING right down to the lug nuts was redone and aftermarket. I had just gotten the interior done for the second time before taking it in to get it appraised for value, but it was stolen 3 days before the appointment. :bawling: That's when I really learned not to put stock in "things" and to appreciate the intangibles like love and beauty. It was either that, or dedicate my life to tracking down and torturing the thief who stole it. :whistle::thinking: I hope you get that next one and have the last two to put with the first one (tools).
