Hey -<P>If you guys (and gals!) don't mind, could you put a first name down here so we can be more friendly? Don't need to if you don't want to obviously.<P>To show I have nothing to hide, I'll start.<P>I'm Shirly.<P>No, seriously...I truly am just Darell. Pretty exciting screen name, I know.<P><BR>Thanks,<BR>- Darell<P>

Darell,<P>If your name really was Shirly, then since you have been talking about your tools and all, I really would be scared give out my real name and would be very confused! <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew

No need to be nervous, Drew. If Darell really was called Shirly he would know how to spell Shirley - at least when not occupied with his tool which likely will make him go blind as well as affecting his spelling capability.<P>

If you haven't figured it out yet, be aware -<P>I am one of the worst spellers I know (well, at least of the educated folks I know). Until bulletin boards figure out how to integrate spell checkers, you'll just all have to suffer along with me. Plus it's really hard to type blind.<P>....Mr. Prepo?<P>- Darell<p>[This message has been edited by darell (edited 04-27-2001).]

Actually, I'd prefer to remain somewhat anonymous. Wouldn't be a problem if this was a private forum, but these threads have a tendency of being indexed and cached by search engines for a long time, and I'd like to keep my personal presence on the web to a minimum. <P>Just call me T. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif">

Not a problem T. I know who you are. I might slip now and again, but I'll try to be good.<P>So we've got Big A, Big D (that's ME Drew), Big T, and Drew and, uh...Prepo?<P>- Darell

I guess that it comes from a lot of different places, I really don't know. I just wanted something that was easy to type and only 4-letters.<P>No, but seriously, whenever I think of InDy, I think of speed, racing, Indianapolis 500, cars, exhaust fumes, horsepower, and how can I forget, and Indiana Jones (love those movies BTW). <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>All I need now is a leather hat, leather jacket, whip, and some eyeballs in my soup eating in a place where I am doomed!<P>-Drew

Well done. Interesting that the race track and the movies are the two images it conjures up for me too.<P>OK, I need to go polish up the beast for the Northern CA Volvo owners meeting that's being held here in Davis tomorrow.<P>- Darell

I am unusual in that where ever I am forum wise (here, Miata.net, VWvortex, newbeetle.org, ect), I use my real name. I got nothing to hide and I like to be above board and not hide behind a "handle", thats just me. <P>

So far nobody has been able to crack my secret screen-name code either...but capitalize the first letter of my name, and you've got me nailed!<P>Nice to meet you Phil....if that's your REAL name. <P> <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/smile.gif"><P>- Darell

See what you've done now Darrel?<P>Real names have confused you. Yes, it is I who ordered the tow eye, not Coastal. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/wink.gif"><P>The dealer's parts department was swamped. They were supposed to get back to me with cost(s) when the ordered it (not a high-demand part they keep in stock). I haven't heard yet though. <P>--Adam <P>On the coast with kayak, yet not quite Coastal<p>[This message has been edited by saabstory (edited 05-02-2001).]

>> On the coast with kayak, yet not quite Coastal <<<P>OK, so at least you see my confusion. <P>Yup, I woulnd't imagine there's much demand for those tow eyes. I'm interested what the part number is, and how much they run though.<P>- Darell
