What was your first post here?

As a bit of a diversion from the recent discussions I thought I would make a thread about our first posts here. I've been here for 1 year now so I thought I would dig up my first post. I'm curious as to what your first posts were

anyhoo back on topic, since Fuel, Back in Black, and Lagrange have already been mentioned a number of times, I'm probably going to go with one of the following:

Thunder Kiss '65 - White Zombie
Ladies and Gentlemen - Saliva
Iron Man - Black Sabeth
and when cruising down some open country road, Free Bird by Skynard

Of course like the rest of you, all that would be after I decide I'd rather hear the stereo than the engine.

I killed the welcome thread, apparently. Mods made an appeal to people who had been watching the site but not participating. I read and posted, finally. Now I pretty much post in every thread.

not quite. that is your first non photoshop thread post though


how you do it is you search for posts by your user name. then chose the other options as follows:

from (nearest time from when you joined) and older,
sort by last posting date in ascending order show results as posts

your first post will be the first one on the list.


by the way, your first post was

Good question. I have no clue how to find it either. I can only search back 500 posts ago. And, I don't remember which section it was in either.

hmm. maybe Tran should update the search feature because it only goes back 1 year and results are limited to 500 posts.

My first post was in a thread asking about the Camaro and winter driving.

As for the post, I only have a 1995 Camaro and here in Idaho the Winters are sometimes pretty bad but they don't use salt on the roads, just sand. I have owned this car since 1996 and it has made it through many winters without problem (of course many of those were in North Carolina and Georgia, but quite a few were in Vermont and Idaho). The car has something to do with how it handles the winters, but the driver is the key component.

Alright, I don't believe this is my first post, but I know it's pretty close as it's a month after I joined. I think the older posts were in threads that have been deleted/archived or something.

The engine they are using with the 6 speed does not have the active fuel management or whatever its called and the automatic version does. They cant shut down half the cylinders and then have you shift is my guess... Either way... looks sweet...
