  1. I suddenly have an urge to watch Gone with the Wind.;)
    Good story, I actually lived an urban version of that. My parents refused to move during the “White Flight” because of the 68 riots. There were some rough times for sure but I have some fond memories also.

    There were a lot of Joes in the local car scene, so you were designated by model year. Interestingly, I had a 57 Chevy when I got that moniker, but it stuck when I later got my 57 Ford. The FoMoPar is a play on FoMoCo and MoPar, since I took the Y block out of my 57 Ford and put a big block Chrysler in. Like my car, it's a mash up of the two.

    I used this name for a CB handle back in the late 70ty's. It came from one of my favorite of color Jokes involving a man with a Wooden Eye asking a girl with a Hair Lip for a dance. I feel pretty certain there are a lot of guys my age on this site that know this story.

    I was born with the name Dustin all my family call's me Dusty Dudder Dud... I've had the same problem some people miss hear me say Dustin and call me Dusty then a person next to the other person thinks they said Rusty and on it goes... So I really understand how you feel my friend I just give up after a while and just answer to what ever they want to call me...
    From Dustin

    I was at church one Sunday and my cousin Shirley walked up and said your a "Nimrod" Dustin. She being from the generation growing up in the 1930's used many Bible name's. But for my generation 1960-70's "Nimrod" was something very different and not very nice to say to another person unless you wanted to get into a bloody fight. So I explained to my older cousin that the word was not appropriate. She then apologized to me and said I forget that the meaning of words have changed over the years. Then the next Sunday she slipped me a paper with Genesis 10:9 written on it and said to me you are a Hunter are you not Dustin and I said yes. To which she replied please read this when you get a chance. So I looked up Genesis 10:9 and it reads (I'm paraphrasing) "Like Nimrod the mighty Hunter before the LORD" That is way Shirley called me "Nimrod" bcuz I'm a Hunter.
    The 1 I put in front of the name Nimrod bcuz I had a personalized license plate for many years here in Michigan and the name Nimrod was already used so I just added the 1 to Nimrod, I also had Nimrod2 as another name on my other license plate. So that's why I chose 1Nimrod as my name.
    Many thanks to my loving cousin Shirley Hoffman for blessing me.

    When i worked at Komatsu heavy equipment there was a sweedish guy there that we called 6.9, he always asked us why we called him that. His real name was sven, (almost seven.) :D It still took him a while to get it. o_O

  13. I happened upon my handle, because I had a brain fart on the first day I signed in on our company website when we started doing computer scheduling, needed a name in a hurry, and couldn't think of anything imaginative.
    Back in my air force days, it wasn't uncommon to call us fighter type pilots, jet jocks, and as I wanted a name a bit unusual and yet one I could easily remember, I came up with J-Jock.
    That's my story, and I'm sticking with it.
  14. In high school I ran with 3 other guys. One guy though we should all have nicknames,so he found a "nickname" book. I was a farm kid. In the book a farmer was a "Stumpjumper" . I tried using that name first,but it was already taken. Since I live in Minnesota , I added MN. End of story.
  15. There is a small town here in Minnesota named "Nimrod"

    That’s funny guys! I put a picture of a 60,000 lbs machine out there and get three comments about my pocket knife I laid on the track to demonstrate the size of the tracks!!...... I love the H.A.M.B! Never disappoints me! LoL!

  27. I can relate to the pocket knife. The biggest machine I have is the John Deere tractor.

    Boneyard. You got me, size matters! True American muscle. One of the great engine sounds, 1473 cubic inches of low RPM Cat diesel pushing a blade full of dirt.
