The Authorized Mechanixfetch Where Did your Name Come From Thread

Giving this thread A similar title gives my posts some nice continuety eh?
But onto the Thread, some users here have some rather interesting names "EggNog", "White Devil" "Ibrake4Rainbows" "lfb666" and "Crisis" to name a few, Where did they come from? Mine stems from the fact that I am taking mechanics for the first time and although I had a real intrest in cars before I started the class, I knew very little material of substance. EggNog our beloved moderator took me under his wing and began to teach me such useful things as what a torque wrench is and where to find it in the shop. Whilst working on his 914 I went and found the tools he needed as a way of orienting myself to the auto room. When i joined the boards on his advice all i could do in mechanics is find tools and grind, hence the name Mechanixfetch. How about all of you?

Great name, mine is pretty self-explanatory - not that I have low self-esteem, I just never let my ego bigger than what I can handle. Either that or its all I could think of at the time .... you decide

there was a game called Carmageddon a few years back, and if you look closely through the opening movei there is one of the characters bumper stickers which says "I Brake For Rainbows" (The game involve running over cows and people for cash, it was quite fun) oh, and the characters car was the one used in National Lampoons Vacation.

Well, I'm not exactly sure where my name came from, but I know it was created for the purpose of being completely original. I mean, have you ever seen someone else online somewhere using the handler "Egg Nog" ?

I like the drink itself, but it's not like I'm a huge fan of it I just didn't want to be another blatantly unoriginal user online named something like "COOLGUY27" or "cars_rule"

Originality is key.

Originality is key, but I think I may have had a bit of fun with mine.
What's it like to see a msg that says "NoOne has replied to your post"?

Well my nameis actuallyafter my car a 71 XY falcon 500 it is in fact the trim level which is more like a taxi pack it comes with the ugly plain flatblack vinyl door trims (scat pack interior as its been dubbed) rather then the nice fairmont interior which is wellsculpet and has some wood grain in it and it comes out with a benh seat and a colum shift auto as well as defineing falcon 500 badges (which screams im cheap when it was new) now the cars are desirable and get hotted up my plans exactly.
The only options my car came with was the borg warner 35 automatic gearbos rather then the three speedmanaul collum shift
The 250 cube 6 cylender rather then the 200
And here an odd one for a cheapyfromthe 70s desert gold (a metallic) paint rather then one of the plain colours.

mines wishful thinking, FPV being the performance devision of Ford in Australia and GTHO being the nameplate for probably the most revered sports sedan in Australian motorsport history, peaking at the 1971 XY falcon GTHO Phase 3. it had a rumoured 270-290kw 351 Cleveland and good condition ones are worth more than $70,000 here. in '72 there was a planned Phase 4 version with 306kw, increased top speed from 140mph to 160mph and other race items for homologation purposes
