At least you probably get some free traffic to your site by folks that mistype the "other" NewArt URL

Mine is my first name followed by the c.c.'s of my first new snowmobile, Ski-Doo MXZ 583. The sled is long gone but I use tommy583 on a few different forums, easy too remember On a side note I've owed 3 new snowmobiles, but never a new car.

Pretty boring - I found the sight, probably had a burning question about my 01S, and wasn't a member of other sites, so I had to come up with a name. Didn't spend a lot of time thinking up something catchy. But I use this name on other sites (P-9, Quattroworld, SuperBeetles, etc) so people who cross pollenate will know who I am.

I picked “Oldcarguy” because, well, I’m an old car guy

It’s homage to a nickname I shared with James Dean...”Little Bastard”

When your father is a cruel miserable person and refers to you as “that little bastard” the best middle finger to the hate is to own it

Mine goes back to a job I had in the defense industry... as you know, you don't pick your call sign, it's given to you... Well, there was fantastically attractive girl at work who liked me (the feeling was mutual) and she would often come over to where I worked and chat with me. Whenever my boss came by and saw this he would yell "BIRRRRDDDDD DOGGGGG !!!" which initially drove me bat-sheet crazy. I finally decided to embrace it (to steal his thunder) and it's stuck ever since...

I went to a small AG high school where 56 Chevys and muscle cars were the pinnacle. Friends thought it hilarious I wanted a 911. Roughly 6 months after graduation I was merging onto the 101 from Mulholland dr. wondering where the accident was, looked down to see I was doing 90. Girlfriend chasing in TR 6 was not amused. I was hooked. Only type I've owned (6) until the water pumping 986.

I worked as a test driver for a automotive press fleet management company, these are the vehicles car manufacturers deliver to Automotive magazines etc. (This is when I fell in love with Porsche) A management change led me to quit this job & I decieded I wanted to be a Precision/Stunt Driver, so i took several driver training courses & printed some business cards with my new email address of my initials+prodriver. I soon realized all the precision drivers lived & worked north of Los Angeles & I didn't want a 4 hr commute. So I bought my own Porsche Boxsters & work for a different press fleet company. (The original company went bankrupt)

1978 Ford F350. It was my vehicle when I first looked up info on an automotive forum. Before that, I used Chilton and Haynes manuals. I found it easy to remember and seldom taken and just stuck with it across the web.

Steel Pulse is the name of one of my favorite reggae band. When I was signing up in 1994 for my very first AOL email address I connected the name together and cut out a letter or two since Steel Pulse was already taken. I still use the email address. Lol.
