The first 5 years were priceless. Between the 20 different intercooler designs followed by the non-stop fighting with Zooomer, it was both exciting and terrifying. It never became what I wanted it to become but I have nobody to blame but myself for that.
One time he sent me a list of every product on my site that wasn't unique and told me that I didn't have an original bone in my body. Then threatened to sue me and sent me a picture of a middle finger.
People would probably be really disappointed to hear that Zooomer and I have been friendly for years now. For those around in the thick of things in 2005/ 6 that's like finding Jesus and satan sitting at the bar enjoying a drink together.
I'll never get tired of telling the story of how I went to go see Bob one time and asked him how they were paying for their drag car. He showed me a stack of credit cards with 0% balance transfers. He'd put it on one, transfer it, wait until the bill was due, transfer it, etc. At least that's what he told me.
Man I miss the glory days of ClubGP even though I was rocking a "pre-gen" and 3.1 and had no money to hang with the likes of L67 builders of the day. Half the people I know today I met directly or indirectly through that site. I still check in every once in a while, and I'm still planning on topping the charts of the 88-96 ETs this summer.
that peoria-thread crew isn't really around though...
people like @[email protected], [MENTION=561]shaferz[/MENTION] is sometimes around, [MENTION=98]smug[/MENTION] was a part of that, [MENTION=654]my97gtp[/MENTION] and then doug & cody and all the others im forgetting.
