The name is what the name is. I have other user names, but they aren't anything with any particular meaning and so I had Matt just change me to my name.

Whoops wheel's stems from the fact that my user name on eBay is Whoops3212 because when I signed up, I figured I was about to make some whoop's, did I just bid on that?

As far as my car, I have an 89 Honda Civic Wagon I would like to drive, but it's down at the moment and I'm playing drive this car or that because I'm trying to get the kink's worked out of a 90 Wagon that I got for one of my daughters that is going to College. My 89 has become a donor vehicle, while I've been working on my daughters, as I have tried to figure out what, why, huh about what it's issues have been.

my first and last name.

I figured for a site I'd be running, I had no reason to have a handle.

Garage:
n600 - my honda n600
Frakencivic - made of parts from many different civics
spaceship - My son calls the Fit a spaceship on occassion

signature:
one is my video collection at igusto.com, which is a site a took a while to make this year. It hasn't gotten much use though as a result of the exposure gassavers received.

The 90 Wagon I've been working on for my daughter is nicknamed the Spaceship, as well. My daughter named it that because it has the A/C switch which gives off a blue light, which is really cool for her nieces, who are 5 and 11. She had a friend of hers who told her that we ought to rename it the Millenium Falcon because it is always breaking down and I keep saying it's fixed and then it turns around and let's me down.

I also have a 67 Ford F100, which is nicknamed Brutus. I know their is someone on the site with a Ford Pickup named Brutus, also. I nicknamed him Brutus because he can haul anything I can give it, but it only gets 12 mpg, loaded, unloaded, uphill, downhill. I can't figure out how Ford could make a vehicle that could get such consistent mileage, irrespective of it's load.

I wonder how many similar names their are for peoples various vehicles?

Silveredwings - Though temporarily earthbound, my name comes from my once and future pursuit: flight.
High Flight

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of Earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, ? and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of ? wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air. . . .

Up, up the long, delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or ever eagle flew ?
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

? John Gillespie Magee, Jr

That's what I figured. And thanks for the visual.
