What does everyones Forum member/screen name or whatever mean? Some are pretty self explanatory (like mine for example..I have 7 Fieros, hence the name), but some are not. What does yours mean (or where did you get the idea for it)?

Mine is kind of a funny story. I grew up in Chicago and when I was 13 I was told I had to move to Idaho, when I got to Idaho I was in total shock. Idaho was unlike anything I had ever seen. It's like 2 totaly different countries. Anyways on the way into Boise we passed a redneck in a 70's ford pick-up truck with bullet holes in the sides, confederate flag, gun rack, beer cans in the bed, the whole nine. I was totaly shocked. then I looked at his liscense plates they said "Boodogn". I laughed really hard. Always thought it was kind of funny.

At the time I signed on here, I was on my second T-bird (92 Sport, 94 Super Coupe), and I always thought the Fiero emblem was bird-like. I'm on my third T-bird now (97 4.6), but I think 2birds will do fine. I don't think I've pi$$ed anyone off enough to have to change my identity (I hope)...

Well, Stu is my real name - that part's real original !
When you pronounce "StuGood," it sounds like you're saying, "It's too good!" - which is what I say to myself everytime I drive one of the Fieros .
When the Fiero came out, I could hardly believe it! GM actually built the little mid-engine sports car I used to doodle on the edges of my papers in high school. The plastic, rustproof kit car I always wanted was available - and already built, instead of a five-year project.
It is too good !

From the song "Radar Love", by Golden Earring. Started out as an AOL screen name. Radar Love was already taken. Hence the "Y" in Raydar. Also used to work on microwave radio equipment. ("Do It 'Till Your Giga-Hertz.")

My wife and I collect primates (started out with just monkeys). Most would consider them "stuffed", but we prefer not to think of them that way. Each has a name and a personality. Currently we have almost 500 of them of various sizes, shapes, species (that doesn't look right), nationalities, ethnic origins...you get the picture. What else could I be called, but...MONKEYMAN?

well, about the time I was getting started on the whole online thing I had a bmx bike that was made by a company called SBC, or Standard Byke(not a typo) Company.. and I just thought it would make a cool s/n...

I look like Dr. Greene(Anthony Edwards) from ER, who also played Goose in Top Gun. When ER got popular everyone called me Dr. Greene, except one guy always called me Goose. He rationalized that since I was once in the Air Force was the better nickname. I agree and it has been so ever since.
(note: I know that Top Gun is the naval school for fighter pilots, but when Top Gun came out Air Force recruitment went up 30%, the Navys only went up 5%. I guess people associate planes with the Air Force.)
Mine is relative to the martial art I study. I've been practicing Yang style Tai Chi (or Taiji) for the last several years, including form, free fighting, push-hands, and water-boxing. Not relevant to Fieros of course, but I've had the nickname alot longer than I've had my Fiero.

mines an educated disphelication of intellectual acheivement combined with an egronamiticly correct substance known as krypton. This in turn creates a dynamic recealiton of conservence in the broth field of aviotic coruption. While the corelation of physical attributes to this in an ingenious way, the name formula comes from the greek word meaning Fiero, as the fiero became a supercar the greek republic of aztic decided to originate a new word for the way to splice genes into biologically reproduced pigs. I know the abbreviation of the word Quantaceptical is QAL and if you turn that backwards it says LAQ then you interrupt the exchange of atoms between the L and the Q and it becomes a Formula for a science procedure known as Dialectic Rebirth. Of course this procedure is used only for pigs in the month of November while they are giving birth to 3 equal cows at the moo garage. This is why my name is Formula..
ok... who was expecting that one???? LOL
