    Now all we have to figure out is if "whomever" in the post title is the subject, or the object of the sentence. I figure in this case it's safe to say if they cared enough to use "whomever", it must be right, right?

    Pretty smart for a HillBilly there Bob. :)

    Ok, the Mustang sign makes you cool in my book. My first girlfriend had a baby blue all original 1966 with the 289 and pony interior. Spent alot of time in that back seat. Is that a Ford Fairlane pedal car? Daisy air rifles of the "You'll shoot your eye out kid" type? May all your VRC forums sins be forgiven. Those flashlights are awesome.

    Yea. I've had a few Mustangs. The back seats weren't very good for doing much... Most of mine, however were hatchbacks where the rear seat folded down. ;-)
    Currently have an 85 SVO. Off to the left in one picture, you can see where "SVO Corner" starts. I have dealer posters, and some diecasts of Mustangs and SVOs.
    There are more vintage flashlights somewhere. I also have some vintage tools, and especially precision tools like calipers and micrometers. I had a third shelf of old pressed steel cars and trucks, but I sold most of them and got rid of the shelf. I was tired of hitting it when actually using the work bench to do work. LOL
    I've got strange tastes, Old tools, flashlights, toy cars and trucks, fire extinguishers, and folding chairs... oh... and bikes. I just haven't been fortunate enough to find a really cool old mountainbike worthy of posting here. My 98 Trek got me off a Walmart bike, and out enjoying the trails on a decent bike. I was pretty proud of bringing it back from the dead, and to me, it was a great restoration. But, I digress.
    The Daisy Red Ryder is actually mine from when I was 9 or 10 years old. I just taught my 10 year old daughter to shoot it. So far, no eyes have been shot out.

    Not that there's anything wrong with this thread, but Dave, meet the thread you need to meet!

    http://forums.mtbr.com/vintage-retro...as-166404.html

    Mexican food, yes, Hollister, that looks disgusting, but I'm sure it tasted out of this world. Damn, just ate B-fast and that made me hungry.

    Play on, and Dave, you are welcome here anytime, you obviously have a head on your shoulders, and skin thick enough for the interwebs, just stop saying "I'm going to sell this" when you talk about stuff, it pisses off the natives, they'll hit you up privately if they want to buy out your whole garage. Actually, I'll bet GOB is on the way there now for that silver pedal car.....:thumbsup:

    Oh, those pedal cars don't even look familiar to me. ha!

    Dave, I don't for the life of me understand how you don't have a klunker or something even older?

    I actually wondered if there was a "What else are you into" thread, but hadn't gotten to looking for it yet. Thanks.
    Some asked if that was a Tee Bird pedal car. Yes it is. Picked it up at a barn sale over ten years ago.
    Here is my daughter (1 year old at the time) helping me dissassemble it for a restoration.



    The firetruck was given to us by our babysitter. She pulled it out of the attic, and my wife noticed it and remembered seeing a picture of me as a little kid riding one just like it. She wouldn't take a dime for it.
    Neither are for sale unless it's "stupid money"

    And I have been looking casually for a bike to build into a clunker.
    I recently fixed up an older GT Dyno freestyle bike to play around with at the local skate/bike park.
    Otherwise I ride my wifes 2005 or so Stumpjumper around town.

    Oh yea... They're kept in a nice cabinet in the house, but I also collect Redline Hotwheels.

    Do you guys get paid to troll? I think that's enough mentions in one thread. :rolleyes: We like all vintage bike sites and think of ourselves as sister sites. If you don't like it here, you don't need to visit. What in the world? Let me know and I can help you delete your account here.

    Let the fun begin.

    All parties should agree at the outset, that they are participating in this little shindig willingly, as this will hopefully help avoid the almost inevitable butthurt, and then requisite gnashing of teeth.... :rolleyes:

    Funny, I felt the same way about yours. Still do. Also that this forum was long run like a little private clique and if you weren't part of that "cool" club, or you weren't coveting and begging (read offering money to clique members for VRC parts) for something, then all you got here is disrespected. Apparently it might still be run that way. I mention on page 1, message #10 of the thread I prefer using retrobike's forums, and apparently two others chimed in the same after me and now I'm a troll ?

    I don't know if you are a troll but i can't see any logic in posting on a thread just to say you don't post anymore cause you despise the place.
    btw.. i never ever bought anything from anyone here and still don't know where is the cool club. I just like the bikes being posted here.

    It's not a clique. It's not a conspiracy. Some people are just not well liked. I mostly lurk but the regulars are pretty helpful. The complainers are like the same people in every workplace and school you've ever been to: in denial about why they are universally disliked and instead of accepting it or working on their whiny personalities, they blame everybody else.

    Face it guys, you guys are just keyboard jockeys with attitude problems.

    Mmmmm. Tacos, anyone?
