PDM started as a joke. A bunch of the members made one or two of something and started talking like they were a company. Putting their last name and Motorsports after it. Being that the whole Barney thing was going on and a big joke, and since I was working on lots of cars and making some parts for people etc I decided to joke around more.

Purple Dino Motorsports was born as a joke and kinda stuck. A buddy make the logo for me and presto.. It'* been a running joke since. Makes people look twice at th sig pic..lol these days I'm on Intense'* site as a recommended installer and have been doing lots of work out of the garage in my free time, helping out friends.

Same ole Forum Geez, only the names were changed to protect the innocent. And Staff to protect the sanity of members.

Think harder about your old username and I'll bring it up and reset it. Those 2 you mentioned didn't work, and 15,000 usernames is alot to blindly search through.

Love "colorful" history lessons. Won't make any jokes about it, since GM has decided that we're all driving dinosaurs now.

Hey, if you're making money at somehting you know well, are good at and really enjoy ........does it still count as work?

I know i had the old name in my old inbox on my old HDD on my old puter. Arrrrgh! Bill'* right again!!!

If i think of it, can you pull up the avatar image as well? Or the properties of the pic i used in my sig line? I loved that pic of old Silver Horse (head on, at bumper height). She got pretty beat up in our May 8 inland hurricane and haven't had the bucks to put her back to "sexy" yet.

Let me look. If I find the ole profile, the avatar and sig would be intact, unless you broke the signature link. It isnt kept on our server. If I find it, I will reset the password, send that to you under present username. Login with it, change to your own, and then I will disable your present one.

Hi Greg!

Welcome to the forum! The one nice thing about having Alzheimer is that you make new friends every day! That and you can wrap you're own Christmas presents and still be surprised Christmas morning.
