Wow, many of you guys are kinda borrrrrring.

I'll try and spice it up a little. Having zero imagination when i signed up for AOL in the dark ages, it wanted to assign me many different things. One was BillBost123872345927352397, which is my first name with the first four of my last name and some horrific number. I had recently gotten a rease to 37K a year. It seemed fitting and backfired well. Most thought it was my age. BillBost37 is the login I originally came here with. At the time I had a 95 SSEi and posted quite a bit. Seemed fitting since I had more mechanical knowledge than some on the forum that I try to help and give back to those helping me.

Not sure why, most folks called me Boost, referenced my username as BillBoost37 and couldn't figure out why their pm'* weren't going to BillBoost37. Upon being asked to be a gearhead on the forum I requested the change. Easy enough being that everyone already thought it was my screen name.

Now I own a 97 SSEi with basically one of everything performance wise. The car screws along like no other looking for Vettes and other muscle cars to pick on as anything less than a V8 isn't a challenge anymore. When the boost kicks in on the car... there'* a serious scream from under the hood and the tires will bake themselves to oblivion at anything under 40mph on dry pavement.

That'* my name story. I'm BillBoost37 and proud to be here.

I started driving 4cyl stock cars at a local dirt track when I was 14, my grandpa raced with the number 04, so did I.

My first car was a total POS, 98CUI with no balls at all, so I got on eBay and bough a sub amd and some speakers. It was a requirement that the speakers and horn still had to work, so I took it to the extreme. On pace laps, cautions and any red flags, you could hear the thumpin' stereo. So a friend, who was a track official started calling me Rockstar, one night when the introduced the driver they announced me as Trent "Rockstar" Petersen and the name stuck.

Trent Rockstar Petersen

well, just like BillBoost, I originally made a universal username with AOL and it was RichK1290. I thought that was rather boring and since my friends used to tell me I was insane, I would argue that i was actually a sane individual. In the end, I compromised with them and said I was "on the edge of sanity" and the phrase seemed catchy and I made it into the username that i used for forums and other fun things online.
