Remember when...?

33 posts in this topic

We were all giddy about Buick LaCrosse spyshots? There was an Ugly Car of the Year Award? We thought Petra was a chick? Bobo was our biggest ricer? 4cyl diesel Corvette?

Except for the ones about Petra and Bobo... Yep. I also remember how right click was once disabled, Rex couldn't stand typing mistakes, post counts were disabled everywhere but the reader concepts forums, and NOS had Ferrari in his name... :P

Or when Open Minded (aka teh ricer civic) got chewed out for getting AH-HA in trouble, or better yet, that awesome sig he made for me. Whatever happened to that sig I'll never know... Or the post whore battles we used to have in the middle of the night...good times, good times... I wonder what Adam has been up to?

That guy had the Corvette lined up with like 6 engines. a 4-banger, a diesel 4 and 6, a v6 and two v8s. I think there was even a proposal by him to have one model propeled by a cluster of small fans and an electric motor. :lol:

Biggest ricer? Well.. we hardly have anyone here worthy of being called a ricer in the first place. Probably me since I seem to be the only advocate of spoilers, ground effects, and other stuff like that (no, not cladding). Basically the stuff that made me fall in love with Pontiac. But alas, GM fans (and Lutz supporters in General) hate that stuff since Pontiacs are supposed to be bland mobiles like every other GM vehicle... Since distiction and being bold are bad things. Very bad things, indeed. Oh, was I ranting? Sorry... -_-

Neither were his posts back then. NOS has matured a LOT.

Northie deleted one of the articles NINETY-EIGHT posted because it was a repeat posting of something Northie had posted earlier that day.

I know that he has been posting at some message board just about Oldsmobiles.

He really has always been much more interested in Oldsmobiles, especially the 1991 to 1996 Ninety Eight, than he is in GM or the auto industry in general.

actually, I remember being giddy when the grainy shots of the interior were first shown. We were all impressed by the Lexus ES-like flowing style and curves, and that piece of wood that runs across the dash. To our credit though, those shots were not clear at all and this was in a time when the Cavalier interior was commonplace throughout GM, anything showed promise then. How wrong we were...

Open Minded/teh ricer civic could have cost AH-Ha his job...AH-HA posted a picture which was hosted on some image hosting site, and OM/TRC took the url from the picture and went looking in AH-HA's account with it viewing his other photos, one of which he decided to post showing AH-HA's face or something like that. Everyone got pissed at OM, he decided to ban himself from the site I believe (that didn't last long) and AH-HA left for a bit if I remember correctly.

BYEBMW I don't think really freaked...I think that was during the time when C&G was in bad shape, we were all going crazy over the cancellation of Zeta and everyone was at everyone elses necks...There were a lot of issues going on with power trips between the moderating team if I remmeber correctly and a lot of hypocrisy going on...BYEBMW got pissed about some issue regarding the afformentioned and that's what happened I think...

I don't think I quite remember the 98 issue, but whatever...98 posted a lot of stuff...he had the highest post count on the boards I believe...He would post every single news article, sometimes post duplicates of new articles he posted previously or articles that were already posted long ago...Frankly, most of his threads went unread I think, or atleast unresponded too...I remember responding to a lot of his threads mentioning that they were reposts, and after a while just kinda gave up...

Regarding the AH-HA/Open Minded debacle, AH-HA posted a pic (Cobalt-related?) on a free imaging site, and Open Minded tried playing with the URL and posted a picture of a house, but it had nothing to do with AH-HA. Related to this, remember Booger's post that started the mess? Another fond memory, discovering the 2003 NAIAS info (including for the Cadillac Sixteen) early. There was a thread on each of the press releases, then it was all deleted.
