    I have been lurking in the half-shadows of CK5 for a while now, a year, maybe two, simply viewing the lounge, and mingling lightly in the garage. I own no Chevy, simply a beater 1993 Cougar, with about as much power as a team of sick huskies. I have long debated whether a membership to this site was worth the $25.00, and haven't had the resources to pony up in the first place. I have grown to admire many people within this moderately sized community, including, but not limited to Rene, Canmore, RJ, and Bubba.

    With the mere threat of one of my, I guess idols is the closest word I can grasp at the moment, leaving, to never offer a bit of advice, humor, or anything to be regarded as intellectual stimulation, I have been moved to throw it all in, and support the efforts of the great persons who take part in rolling this site uphill.

    I have learned an immense amount of basic shop and automotive information here, along with an equal amount of worldly advice in pointed and pointless discussions.


    And I have only tipped the iceberg.

    I LOVE YOU !!!

    JESUS CHRIST !!! YOU ROCK !!!

    BUY A BUS TICKET TO SD, I'M GIVING YOU MY K5 !!!

    Somebody dropped my name!

    We're gonna go drink beer and eat cheese wheels and vomit and find Canmore, and steal his stupid hats and his old glow plugs and bean him in the head with a shovel and go find Bubba and smack his ass with a rolled up paper and run away giggling while he wonders what happens and then go to Rene's house and put Can Can's old glow plugs in his truck.... and get beat up I assume

    Welcome abourd CK5 soldier, you are in for a trip

    There are a lot of people on the board and there is a lot of information here, the thought of losing one of our best people is really upsetting. Welcome to CK5.com and we are glad you decided to become a member.

    Thanks for joining up and for speaking up Nathaniel. :)

    Nothing better than belonging to a big happy dysfunctional family like CK5 I say.

    RJ, I could really use some of Can Can's old glow plugs. Make sure to pillage his fridge and bring some of his home brewed beer while you're at it though. Not only is Paul a brilliant diplomat with a silver tongue (:p: ) but he is also a great brewmeister.

    Well then, sounds like someone needs to indulge in some "diplomacy."

    I'd get a Greyhound ticket, if only I didn't hate buses so much.


    How about some ez-cheez to go with those wheels?

    Nathaniel:

    Believe it or not, your post is one of reasons I decided to stay. To hear that I impacted a complete stranger's life was very cool- I've always tried to keep this place friendly and approachable and you are living proof that I have accomplished my goal.

    Thank you so much for the props and the support when I needed it. And thanks for officially joining CK5!!!!!

    Thanks for supporting such a cool site, I'm by far not the oldest around but I have come to appreciate those who join and keep it going, the few ups and downs of loosing members, and possibly closing the site has made me support as much as I could.

    Nice to hear such a positive story, the people on this site are some of the best around!:pimp1:

    I'm honored, and very happy to hear that my words have an impact upon the CK5 community, and that I'm not simply a voice in the crowd. Thank you everyone, for listening, and letting me know I'm not simply speaking into a well.


    Canmore, thank you for hearing my testimonial, and the kind words of so many others. I'm glad to see you have returned.

    Rene, my respect has grown for you immensely in the past two days.




    RJ, what the hell is with the pi thing? I love some good apple pie every now and then, and ice cream pie is good too, but would you please explain the song? Maybe post the lyrics?

    You need a cooler screen name TSGB is too hard to think of quick "Tsgabub"

    Or maybe I'll make up what the initials mean.

    The Sin Gary Bled

    Time Scavenging Gory Beetles

    Two Sick Guys Bleed

    Two Sexy Guys Bartend

    Tar Sticks Good, Bro

    Total Shotgun God, Buddy

    Yeah I like the last one



    Anyway, if someone can spare 1.5 MB webspace, I'll upload the Pi song, it's fantastic! It helps you learn PI! Extra web space!? You can hear my cover of it!
