This has been the best community to be apart of. It has made me want to push my car further than I ever anticipated and have always enjoyed the few events I could be apart of.

Of course its the members of TCG that have been the most influential. Here are a few notable folks in my own humble estimation (forgive any folks I overlook, there's just too damn many):

First off, my thanks go out to the people who volunteer to moderate and help keep this place as sane as it can be within the rules and guidelines that makes TCG a special place above all other forums. Without you guys, @Mook, @skeezer and myself would have gone insane a long time ago.

@Yaj Yak for most active on TCG, being a good buddy and being the bad influence that convinced me to buy a boat!
@Knowklew @J-LO & Jeff - best current and highest car quality meet award (AKA: Da Corvette Crew)
@PANDA - grumpiest cat award, event planning and best snowmobile buddy award
@sickmint79 - most political and mentally challenging, close second goes out to @Primalzer
@1MEANGT & @Pressure Ratio - for being bad influences and encouraging me to buy the Capri!
@Outlaw & @CTC DEEZUL & @Chester Copperpot - tied for best TCG hillbilly awards
@DanJoy @Bru @Senor Deplorable - photography and film making which is critical to the community's success
@Slolane - best shit talking award
@EmersonHart13 - best TCG Tour trouble maker
@ilikemtb999 - biggest hippy award
@greasy - on TCG vacation right now, but a damn good friend that has helped on countless builds and garage organization projects. Best MAF plug award!
@SRT41320 - most eclectic car collection award and best auto-purchase-assist award
@Lead Pipe & @School Boy - most huggable
@willizm for his TA build that quickly surpassed my own
@Turk for teaching my son how to properly cuss out kids on xbox
@98GrandPrixIraqVet - Craziest "new guy" to the political threads award
.... I'm missing tons of influential people here, but I've got to cut this off at some point!

Special shout out to the entire @shockerracing.com crew! Props to you boys for being active as long as you've been! Your meets never fail to be a good time and the pics and media... well those speak for themselves!

Then to the acquisitions that @Mook has made over the years - most notably ILGPC and CSVT. You guys have certainly added to TCG and your presence here has been appreciated in my book!

and of course, the best for last:

@Jack for his thankless support of this community through his hosting generosity, responsiveness to problems and his friendship over the years.

and

@Mook, THE fearless leader of The Chicago Garage. For being a great friend over the years who has allowed my bad influence to encourage bad behavior, mocked my poor xbox headset use relentlessly, been around for countless drinking parties and finally for starting, nurturing and supporting this community. Let's keep it going, buddy.
Wtf makes me a hippy?

Congrats on this awesome feat!! I joined because of Vipermike aka @PANDA and I've enjoyed every minute/year. Wish I could be more active as of late and get more involved in meets but I try. Met many good people on here, and have to say my life changed through this forum.

You can't forget how this forum helped changed the Midwest as of these past several years by help bringing the 1/2 mile to the region and created a new passion for many

I'm glad I was able to help a few members out in sticky situations with my turd I built. She isn't aging well, but hoping to fix that.

Thanks @Mook for taking on this challenge. TCG for life.

Damn, 10 years! I've been here most of 9 years. I guess I didn't realize I joined when the site was that new.

I know you've been waffling about the site traffic as of late @Mook, but the site is just as good now as its ever been. Here is to another 10 years!

This has been a fun place to stay connected to a car community, even though I don't live in Chicago. Thanks to Mook, and those that keep this place running. Good shit fellas.
