  2. Mine was from when I first went on a computer and was on a Harley-Davidson message board. Stllrng. is an abreviated form of " Still learning". I was still learning at that time, and I am hoping to keep on learning untill I am dead. That's why I keep reading posts here, there is a lot of good information from people with more experience than I will ever have. FLH4-speed got all pissed off at me because I have an evo in my '77 FL; well back in 1984 that was the coolest hot rod thing you could do. At the time it was sort of like taking the flathead out of your '40 coupe and installing a new Oldsmobile rocket! Keep up the good information and keep on learning!
     
  3. I restored/customized this Magnum Sport a few years ago.
    Afterwards my son started calling me Magnuman, so I've since used the name.

    In one of my college classes we had to start a company and run it for a few weeks. we had to name it. I named mine Lenhart Kustoms-my last name. My best bro and I joked about starting a shop for the longest time, until one day we decided to make it a goal. After screwing around trying to come up with a cool name, I just combined mine and his last names to come up with "Anderhart Speed and Kustoms"-hence the Anderhart Speed

    Mine is old, came from living in the North West where it rains all of the time. When I retired in the mid 90's I hated the rain so came up with Rainhater1, got smart and moved to AZ, but still kept the name.

    After i retired from A.F. i went to work for an acft manufacture (go figure) pretty much everybody had a nickname. After a couple of weeks the the plant forman came over and told me since i have no regard for other peoples feelings when i talk to them i was one rotten jon. Have been using it ever since for everything! Had to change the spelling of rotten to use it as an E-Mail.

    I figured if it was good enough to tattoo on my head, it was good enough for a screen name.

    Well I have a 66' Barracuda that I'm building. I am using the tailights and dash from a 65' cuda and other parts from a few Valiants, so I started calling it frankenfish. Since I don't have any real nick names I use it for my screen name here and on a few other sites.

  22. My real name is Wesley. I have some friends down in Mexico. So they started calling me Weslito. Then it changed to El Hueso(The Bone in English) because the Hues sounds like Wes. Then it eventually became "El Hueso de perro." - Which is The Bone of a dog in English.

    I use mine on several forums because at one time I owned a couple O/T AMC Eagles. Still own one. The proper spelling "eaglefreak" was already taken by my email provider so I misspelled it on purpose.

    A couple of years ago I was laid off from my job (again) and wanted to pick up selling our junk, er vintage treasures. My old seller name cincinnatisuede was not very descriptive as a seller. Having a "garage mahal" was just coming into vogue. We kind of liked the garage sale / bazar vibe so we changed it. Ebay selling takes a lot of time, so now that I work a 9 to 5 again the treasures are starting to stack up. If I could just get motivated...
