    da'HOOVs OT thread, RB, cars, hairstyles & Sonny/Cher

    Cruised over to RB to check it out. Looks like a few folks from here are there too. Interested to see a "stan4bikes" recently joined. Same old antics it looks like.

    FWIW , "stan4bikes" on RB is not me, not affiliated with me and does not represent me. I am not the one pulling his strings.

    For those who don't know, I was stan4bikes here before I changed to da'HOOV.

    Who cares? Did you copyright or trademark that name? Why do you have to stir the pot here.

    It was pretty easy to tell it wasn't you. That guy actually seems to have a sense of humor.

    I posted because I got two pm's from members here asking if it was me. That's why I cruised over and checked it out. Nothing more, nothing less. If that constitutes "pot stirring" so be it.

    Well since the post is totally OT and adds nothing, maybe a cool car photo will lighten the mood. Not a bike but a few cars have been posted here previously with no repercussions.

    My '67 427/480hp Camaro, best 1/4 mile was 11.2 with 8" Racemasters. It was my everyday car despite the fact it could pull the front wheels 6" off the ground in street trim. 90-10 shocks, line lock, close ratio 4 spd, 4.11 Posi, deep sump oil pan, balanced and blueprinted, Long gone but never forgotten.

    And I want to stress what great a role retrobike plays in the international vintage mountain biking community. It's plain awesum to have good supportive communities to meet multiple interests and passions. Finally, I just took a look and congratulations to pete_mcc for that pretty Klein and winner of September's Bike of the Month!

    VRC is not affiliated with retrobike so that is why I personally believe that it's OT to be complaining about users from that forum. Should anything occur on that forum, I can only request that it remains there. I'm sure they don't want to deal with our dramatic entanglements as well.

    Feel free to use the personal message (PM!) system to talk to and respond to specific curious people. It works well and keeps the drama out of this forum.

    Thx!

    Wow! Impressive Camaro. Love American Muscle Cars.

    Hey....speaking of Americans. That thread over at Retrobike is a good example of why the rest of the world hates Americans.

    I've been to over forty countries (for up to 14 months a country and lived in two others) and have very little problems with people because of my nationality.

    For the most part the people I have problems with are from Canada, Britain, and Germany (in that order). While problems are rare even with those nationalities, some people think one must fight off the haters all day long. "America hate", occasionally. "American hate", exceeding rare.

    If a local person has something to say about the U.S., I usually let them. If a western European traveller is grumping about it, I politely let them know I'm not that interested.

    Actually, that was directed to Stan and his 6 inch wheelies on street tires.

    Can't much drive that car where there are cyclists to watch out for, although the ones I have seen at the track are often pretty wobbly.

    It's just an old race car. The car was prepped back in 78 by a factory racer's shop and they knew all the right places to point the torch. No interior, 'glas parts, full race. It's probably as light as Stan's Camaro since he said it had a 427 in it. Runs mid 11's with a stock 440 in it.

    I sold this back in the summer. High winding 340 with not a lot of low end torque. It embarrassed a lot of faster cars on the street because while they were trying to get things hooked up and moving, I was already at 6 grand, second gear, and gone. I built it for my wife, it was basically a daily driver that never was driven. Of course, it couldn't do a 6-inch wheelie, so there's that.

    Spent a lot of time in a 70 340 Dart, they certainly embarrassed a lot of other medal back in the day.

    My old Prometheus frame, that I was also the original owner of, is in the Classifieds right now. And I just sold two weeks ago.

    nope, that was this one. Picture taken shortly after I bought it, HiPo 383, Torqueflight, Formula S, before wheels, tires, headers etc.

    See Hillbilly, I had some Mopar love too.

    Two more and I'll stop. Thanx for your patience, I've been scanning old photos, reliving past memories..

    Datsun 510 built by BRE back in the day. Stock rating was 95HP, we estimated this to be pushing 180 with an Experimental high lift cam, 11-1 pistons and full Mullholland suspension kit.

    Datsun PU with a Chevy LT1 350, 375 HP, narrowed 12 bolt rear, 3 speed Automatic with a manual shift kit. It fooled a lot of people.

    What a pointless thread. girlonbike, this should be locked, preferably deleted. If people want to discuss subjects unrelated to VRC the should find an appropriate forum. Or create a "Totally off-topic, schoolyard BS" sticky for the usual suspects to play in.

    Stan, nobody cares, do you know how many people are using "mechagouki" as a forum username? Nobody cares. That's how many.

    Pingwuin, it doesn't matter what country you come from, their are *******s in every country, naming perceived culprits just gives weight to those *******s' "American idiots" argument.

    Aaand it sounds like you should have done just that, and ignored this.

    Adding more to the drama index doesn't help threads like this go the way of the Pliestocene, just FYI.....

    Haha, I would never! But...on the off chance that I do voice an opinion on some blue collar bikes...I don't hide behind a sock puppet account *cough*dontyoueatthatyellowsnow*cough*cough*

    I think they qualify per your description

    The thread is 'jacked, deal with it.
    Indeed.

    That must be just for hauling nice parts... most parts I find are too oily/rusty to put in something that shiny.

    Mech'...amazing that an OT thread that no one cares about has over 800 hits and 45+ posts. (Including 5 or 6 from you )...all in good fun my friend. I'm sure the mgmt. likes the high hit count.

    I like your idea of an OT picture, comment, rant thread ..maybe even a sticky?

    It saddens me that this thread has more views than FB's Merlin or the Dekerf ST. Even the GT u-brake thread has some interesting content. I suppose I am partially responsible for it as I contributed to the fire. I just get a little weary of some people that have been here long enough and know better still professing their undying naivety as to what the rules are around here and pushing it time and time again. It gets old.

    Compare this to the Show Us Your Vintage Rider thread which is my kind of thread. Lots of pictures of dirty bikes, people having fun and asking questions about why we're even here. So why are you here? Go check them out.

    I assume you mean me..one thing I'm not is naive. Yeah, it is kinda sad but is it really hurting anything? And breaking a rule? With all respect, I don't think it is. It's not selling, fishing, flaming, obscene, from the number of views and posts it seems to be pretty popular.

    What about mechs idea of a "totally OT" thread? It jus might work..

    IMO, change the thread name and just let it be one massive OT post talkin' about whatever. Kinda like VRC's very own recycle bin. We could turn a negative into a positive (and actually have Stan to thank for it).

    Nope on the ranting OT sticky idea. But luckily for you, I found a whole forum that accomplishes your request and nobody has stolen your username there!

    I was thinking the same thing and now the Rumpf has written this, I've saved the page so he can't deny it was ever said and that oil and water can mix.

    Rodney King: Can't we all just get along?

    Rumpfy & Stan in Unison: Yes!

    Track time under my watch, sadly no.

    The story I got about the car is some Hollywood type bought it new, took it to BRE and told him to make it SCCA legal. He wanted to get his SCCA license and after he did apparently sold the car. It went thru 3 owners without change of title or registration (bills of sale only) until the character I bought it from got it.. He was a young kid and got 3 exhibition of speed tickets and his Uncle told him not to bring it home ..ever again. I traded a beat up old Chevy PU and $100.00, forged some signatures, made it "legal" and drove it for 3 years.

    I do admit to possibly exceeding the legal speed limits maybe a few times under my ownership.

    More pics? let me know, I've got a couple.
