Avatars and Names - What's the story?

Mine are pretty straight forward... the name came from my 2 daily drivers when I joined. The avatar I have to credit farmb0y ( and a few others). I really like the IH logo and my tractor rates right up there with my love for the trucks. The Farmall 400 looks round from the front so I personalized my avatar. BTW - for city folk, like any company that's been around, there has been some changes.... if you backtrack through International Harvestor's history to the 1950's you'll see my tractor. It's a good machine... like an old Ford truck.

Anybody else?

don't have an avatar but the name came from my wife, when I was first building the 86 she looked at it, and said that it looked like a baby monster truck, well you can see where it went from there and has just stuck to the race trucks

Lastnight on CSI - Basically there was a large man who got his kicks outta wearing a diaper and basically had someone who did all the "mommy" duties with/for him.

He's another sort of "monsterbaby"!

ah I understand now. Well I did tell Ivan was thinking of getting a pic of a baby taz in diapers holding a NOS bottle with the top bit off, and putting it on the side of the truck above the name on the door. He thought that would make a good avatar but I don't know how to make up avatars and have never seen anything like that.

The avatar was my rusted out, beat up, old 64 f250 - still miss it.
The name - anyone remember the old commercials for Boxcar *****, Whoopie John, or Zamphir - master of the pan flute commercials? BTW, my name is Dan.

Sounds pretty cool Monsterbaby.... I made my av as a bitmap and um, I only did it the one time, but if you poke aroungd in "User CP", I think you'll find it's pretty easy..... of course everything is easy after you know how. Give it a shot sometime.

Wyldstallyn73- wyld stallynz was the name of the band in the Bill and Ted's excellent adventure movies and since I'm all about Broncos, it just seemed appropriate to me. The 73 was the year of my first Bronco- the same one I'm building into my new (again) trailrider. I have had that Bronco since 1987 although its getting less and less for every "rebuild" -see a pic in my gallery

well at first my 1992 f350 4x4 was slow. did some modifing and some hot roding worked it in the snow ripped up the gravel and went in to some fields and next thing I know I had some how cracked the block so out came a nogoing 7.3. In went a 1986 rebuilt 6.9. December 3 2004 I sold the truck now I drive a hyundai around and at my new job I will be driving a frieghtliner around again but its a 154bhp 5 cylinder instead of a 435bhp 6 cylinder. The avitar well I was once told smile it confuses people plus its cool to see some color on the web.

CBSUPERDUTY... I used to live in Council Bluffs, hence the CB and superduty's are my trucks. I think my current avitar is the PSD logo on my truck. I need to find a nice little Deere logo for all of these IH guys.

I'm basically too lazy to worry about an avatar, and the name comes from my prior and current isp, they named me that... first four letters of my last name, first two of my first, and the 86 is my year of truck. It's my current workhorse, but not the only year I like.
