What does your screen name mean?

So, what does your screen name mean, or whose screen name do you want to know the origin of? When it comes to a guy like 72c20customcamper, we pretty much know everything but the vin. But when it comes to Special-K, what do we really know? The guy could be just a clever cereal killer for all we know. And then there's Rickysnickers. Hmmm. Does Ricky tend to find the humor in things and chuckle a lot? Or is it a reference to Ricky's undergarments? In that case, I would find it a little more compelling if Ricky was spelled Rikki. As for me, my name came about from owning a daily driver and multiple projects. People like to ask me how many cars do you have now? And I don't like to answer, haha. The accumulation includes my grandparents' 1967 Chrysler Newport convertible that my grandmother willed to my brother and I. So that only counts as half. LT7A means less than seven autos. I had more than six, so I'm telling the truth. Or was at the time... Okay, so whose name do you want to know about? Or what does your name mean? So how about it, Ricky. Are you heir to a candy bar fortune, or what's going on over there?

Re: What does your screen name mean?

Mine is obvious I think. I am just happy! Happy to own a great truck, a great car, a great daily driver, a super wife of almost 44 years, 6 amazing daughters, 12 grandchildren and closing in on retirement. I am a very happy guy.

Re: What does your screen name mean?

Ironhorse evolved from my owning a 69 Mach 1 Mustang and running a CB radio at the time. No longer have the Mach 1 (dumb move on my part, LOL) or the CB radios but have driven pickup trucks for last 50 odd years. Men used to ride horses, now we ride in pickups so......Ironhorse worked for me

Re: What does your screen name mean?

Mine is somewhat obvious if you would see me in person, but it was chosen as a screenname as a bit of a joke. It is actually from embracing what is generally viewed as a slur. "Longhairs" are usually bikers or heavy-metal jean-jacket wearing concert-shirt wearing types.
So, I guess if hair reaching my belt, riding a Knucklehead, and having flaming skull tattoos from wrist to shoulder on both arms doesn't scare your kids, nothing else will.

My first name is Steven, my last name starts with a "D", and even though it is two words, my handle is still "SteeveeDee".
