And I will log the first vote (don't just post, remember to take the poll)
I vote for "h". Its the obvious choice.
And in case its not clear the "I" choice is meant to be first person response as in "insert your name here" is the only one that knows whats going on.
Good luck!
Also feel free to write in if there is just one person who knows what is going on and there name is not listed above.
Please do not use this thread to flame your list enemies!

That's funny, when I make a technical post, I am so skeptical of the responses sometimes that unless billwot, tomsmr2, mister3, or a few select others post... i'll just stop following the thread.

Yes it is true I have seen more and more posts by young kids with no money and big dreams.

But I am thrilled that the MR2 has a new generation of kids to keep this car going. In a few years hopefully lots of these young kids will finish college, get good jobs and remain MR2 enthusiats with lots of money to spend on these rare cars.

Our local meets have included a diverse group of age and gender. It is interesting to see older professionals having something in common with teens.

Same Bill I was referring to. Now if I wanted to stuff a Northstar into a Segway...

Any Bill will do!
Bill strong or Bill Wot (insert your "Bill" here)
And never underestimate the value of somebody who will try to put a v8 into a rascal or might even try to make a board for international MR2 users to frequent and support.

it depends where you go and how you ask.

for something thats suspension related I go to the autox forum, and be as specific as possible.

if its just a general question and I want a fast answer I put it in the MKII forum.

if its engine related i go to the turbo forum and be as specific as possible.

if its something i want to show people or tell people (like check out my new purple shag carpeting) i go to the mid-east forum, because i might actually meet them someday.

I base a lot of the reliablilty on the age. I'm much more likely to take the advice of someone that is 35 and may have actual experience versus and 18 year old that probably doesn't. but the age doesn't always matter. after you've been here for while you figure out who knows what.

If you want to, in addition to voting, feel free to list names of users who have been very helpful. PLEASE refrain from trash talk. Most of us learn quickly on our own who to ignore. But it might be nice for those people like ATSAaron, Jeklyandhyde and Rickyb to see how much they are appreciated. I know that there are others who are paragons of knowledge, without being jerks. I have listed a couple whom I think have been a great help to me. Feel free to give a shout of your own.

I resemble that remark! :p However, I do my absolute best to ask the right questions and give accurate answers. And you're right, when I get out of college I will continue to work on my MR2 and make it all I ever wanted it to be.

MaxterDizazter I hope you know my post was intended to get a point across that yes we have some young kids on our forum but it is great that there is a new following. This will help to ensure the continued following of the MR2.

Red Tuna is an engineer that works on improved designing and passing C5s before flight(if I remember correctly). With a multi-meter and a paper clip he help me pinpoint a problem my car was having with my bov, not to mention a full afternoon he spend on test drives and running to the autoparts store. Guys like this are a essential source of info to this forum.

Did I mention Larry owns a 95 T?

You mentioning the gt28rs people (obviously attacking Bruce) kinda came off as being an _______ IMO, and ATS is not all knowing and powerful mr2 god... people buy into new products soo easily.

Luckily it seems that some of the old timers are starting to come back as the punks are going elsewhere. This is good as now we can get back to making these cars fast and spend less time policing trouble makers.

Umm,..Lets check that profile.
19?
That's all?
So you've had a DL for three,maybe four years and you come in the forum and knock ATS.

A LOT of people are LYING about their age though.Maybe you're not 19.

No offense El Paalo,my five year old fellow Texan.:)

I just don't listen to *advice* from anyone below a certain age.They think they know it all.I am SOOOOO GLAD I don't have kids.

Besides,you're in NC.Matt didn't leave your turbo adapter bolts loose.AHEM...
