I get about 100 Emails a day that I should respond to & I'm gonna respond to someone sending me some picture.

Ok, so how's that response? Is it what you were looking for?
Archie


What an ******* ! There's my response. You sure do assume a great deal, and don't worry you pompus ass, I hadn't thought about plastering them all over your threads, I don't care for you anywhere near enough to take the time to bother. I had an idea, I put it together, then thought- wow, Archie does V-8 swaps, he might get a kick out of it... instead, I get the kick. Man, if I had any idea that you were such a prick I think I might have come up with something more appropriate to post on your thread. Why do you post photos of your work? Are you proud of what you do? Do you like to share with others that you think might be interested in what you've done? Do you like it when people post comments about your efforts? And my doing this is different how? I imagine you'll come up with some smart ass comment about how serious you work is and how this is your thread bla bla bla... I find it ironic that you don't have the time to respond to a PM- how am I to know you actually got it, yet you do have the time to show us what a jerk you are.

So for some reason, I think that is bogus. But hey, maybe I'm wrong. I hope not though.

For those that don't know, I know Tina and Greg pretty well, and am just playing around.

Now come on Eric, "Routine Maintnance" is perhaps a little to loose a term, but then we are talking about the curse and not my 85 4 cylinder.
Archie would propably tell me to take a "flying leap", if I asked him to change the oil or something in that catecory.
The reason the car went to Archie is because it was lonely and wanted to hang around some other V-8 Fieros for a while.

Nahhh, that's not it.

The reason the car went to Archie is because he is one of the few people I trust with the car, not because Greg or I could not do something.
Simply to much work and not enough time in our schedule, to Git -R- Done.

Love the rumor mill though, stop by sometime.

Oh yeah, I wonder where I got the idea that you might even remotely be interested in something I've done? It might not be "Rat Fink" but it's possible that it has commercial value to someone... Smooth move Exlax.

Yep that's right. In a thread where you were trying to sell sigs for $5 each, I offered you the chance to show your real talent & to make some real money designing something original & unique. What you sent me was a photoshop of some meathead you found on the Internet & I also got a bunch of your foul mouth.

Out of all of the kids out there that claim to be experts in PS, I actually invited you to do something special for me & for that you decided to start calling me names.

I thought my previous post might inspire you to put your time into something unique rather than some photo-shop that even I could do.

Next time someone offers you money to do what you claim you want to do, I'd suggest you try produce something useful & that you try to hold your tongue long enough to get paid for it.

I'm here to tell you that it's a lot easier making a living doing something you WANT to do than doing something you HAVE to do.

Thanks for participating.

Archie

Well ignoramus, your "better luck next time!!" comment probally would have made him mad too.

So, your 30 second one line response is really not what I was looking for..better luck next time!!

I guess even real genii like Picasso and Degas showed more humility than you.Oh...you had time to read my post, and come back with your pathetic response..yet you are tooooo busy to reply with civility to somebody who tried to do something for you.Should have taken my advice, and not bothered with your pathetic repeated arrogance. I rather think the meathead is in your shoes, and not in the photoshop Andrew sent you.Take a look in the mirror, some time. You see, you have responded just as I thought you might...you got upset in the same way as Andrew did, and for the same reason...He got insulted because you cast aspersions on him...and now you do the same to me.Look before you leap...Now...perhaps you can understand why Andrew took a shot at you...you are doing the same, because I had the temerity to take you to task over your ignorance.Take pride in your work by all means...but respect others' pride in theirs.
Edit: did you mean "probably"? I really had better send you that dictionary.

And you say that I'm arrogant. You've been calling me names since your 1st post but you say I'm not being civil. But your not arrogant.

You edit to say something about my spelling, but your sentence structure needs a lot of work. But your not arrogant.

You claim that I'm not using big enough words to respond to you. Here's a word for you "tooooo" what kind of word is that? But your not arrogant.

You got insulted because I called you the same name you called me. Then you use more negative terms. But your being civil.

You told me that I should have said "better luck next time" to Andrew but you got upset when I said it to you. But I just did what you said.

With your superior intelligence, I'd suggest that you go back & correct the grammar & sentence errors in your posts. I'll give you a hint, sentences end with a period & a space. The next sentence begins with a capitol letter. Also please fix that "You see," thing, I think you ment "you'll see,".

Now, this thread has been going on longer than you've been a member of PFF, I'm sure it would be appreciated if you'd take your bashing some place else. You can start a new thread or join one of the many others, but please take it with you.

The picture looked like a joke to me, if it was posted in one of my threads or send to me as an e-mail I would probably not give it a second thought.
Looking at the times that Archie post I would say you are mistaking being tired for arrogant.

JohnnyK you are a troll if you donít like what he is saying then just donít read it.
Same goes for the rest of you.

The picture was put together with other pictures off the internet. They belong to someone else. Archie has asked that anyone with some PS talent to create him some T-Shirt to help promote his shop. He had a thread about it.
http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Archives/Archive-000002/HTML/20031229-1-030246.html
I think Andrew could do that if he put his mind to it.

I think you should move along and leave this thread alone some of us enjoy it and would like it to continue.

Jake_Dragon, point taken, and that is the end from me.I too have always enjoyed this thread, and will continue to do so. I apologise to everybody, including Archie, for going at it in the thread...it should have been pm's. I honestly would give anything to have my Fiero look like that choptop...but it can't happen, I am in Spain!!.
Enjoy the thread without more from me, and once again, apologies for disrupting the thread.
Nick

This is the only statement that mattered.
Just like Tina, There are very few places I would trust with my car. Just check out some other forums and you'll see that there are places that will mis-treat your car. There was a thread about 2 years ago where a guy took his Mustang Cobra to a dealership for repair. The mechanic hot rodded around and abused the car. His problem was he boasted what he did on a Mustang forum where the owner happened to also be a member. Last I heard there was a ford mechanic looking for another job.

I have a question that actually is relevant to this topic. I was wondering if the finale roadster ever got finished? I've never seen finished pictures and I didn't feel like looking through 20 of the pages of this topic to try and find it. I also couldn't find the original post about it either. So, did it ever get done?

Who knows why I stuck my head in here. But comon, he is trying to make someone else feel stupid and belittle them for their grammar and spelling, and misuses words in the process? Gandhi himself wouldn't pass up that opportunity.

What! #18 is in the house? This is good news. 18....hmm.
I think someone should bring-out the beer. "V8Chopper-Inc" has grown-up.

I don't know if I mentioned it earlier but #17 will be notable because it will be the 1st LS1 Chop Top.

Like I said #18 is already here. It's going to be kinda special in it's own right.

When it's done it'll be a Torch Red Replica of the Stinger powered by a ZZ4 with Chrome TPI. Since the Stinger build thread went to the Archives when we were't watching, I've been thinking of doing a full build-up thread on this car.

What do you think, should I do a build up thread? And, should we figure out a name on the car for the owner?

I would definitly would like to see a build thread for this car! Well, since it is gonna sorta be a sister car to the stinger, and it will be red with a ZZ4 engine what about "The Burner" on account of its red paint and ability to burn the tires off the car.

#17 looks almost like the PPE's big brother. Yes, we love build up threads...please do one on #18

I went to check on #14 today. Unfortunately not much to report other than it's covered under a thick layer of sanding dust.

Like I said #18 is already here. It's going to be kinda special in it's own right.

When it's done it'll be a Torch Red Replica of the Stinger powered by a ZZ4 with Chrome TPI. Since the Stinger build thread went to the Archives when we were't watching, I've been thinking of doing a full build-up thread on this car.

What do you think, should I do a build up thread? And, should we figure out a name on the car for the owner?

Hmmmmmm,.......let's see first #18 is already there,.......secondly Archie is going to do a build up thread sort of like the stinger,
and thirdly he is suggesting we suggest names for the owner, hmmmmmmmmmm.

Anybody else think this could be Archie's next project ??

I sure hope so !

Archie keep up the great work !

The LS1 will be installed in #17 by the owner, I think he reads PFF, so we'll be seeing so pics when He's working on it. He already has the engine & he has our swap kit for it.

Okay Archie, we need ESPN chop top info:

Did the person(s) pick-up #17. Any picks of that person? Whereís the "pose" he,he. Will the person join the Pennockís flock? Future Color of #17? Black?

Mystery person #18? Fastback or Notchback? No love lost for either one. Itís all good.

Enquiring minds would like to know.

I want to introduce myself to the group. I am the #18 chop for Archie. I am really pleased Archie showed me the pictures of the "Stinger" he so lovingly built. Otherwise I would just be another player putting a ZZ4 in a Fiero. For you who haven't met Archie, he is what I call a real person. He has no agenda or pretense. What you see is what you get. In my world that is a rare commodity. I am looking forward to sharing the expericence of watching the transformation of my 84 SE. I think that the naming of the car is intriguing and should be a lot of fun. I am willing to go along with the choice of the forum. Oh yea, I look at the pictures of the yellow "Stinger" everyday and I am impatient as hell to get to drive the new "*******". Archie is shooting for October 14th as a completion date.

Congratulations and welcome to the group. I was thinking that #18 would be an Archie in-house job, but it's even better that he's building it for a customer. You will find that people of PFF can be very helpful and lots of encouragement. Please post lots of pictures!!

Just want to say welcome to the forum and the v-8 powered club. Also having it chopped makes it even more special. Keep us posted on the build.
Have a Nice Day
Thanks Gary

I have not decided on an interior package for the "Stinger" look alike yet. I would like a "european" look with leather. I think that with a Corvette Torch Red exterior color a deerskin or camel interior color would look very nice. I will definately go with Mr. Mike's seats. I could use some help here. I was lucky enough to see Tina's "Beast" when I dropped off my ride. Very impressive car! I coveted her metal racing pedals. I wonder where she got them. All of that engine and eye for detail and I like the pedals. That's weird.
