It’s a bit cumbersome to sign on checks but I always wanted to go by a first initial like other obscenely wealth folks. 

Oh, like Axl Rose!

My most common screenname is my first two initials.  Sort of like BJ Hunnicutt, whose actual name was BJ since he was named after his mother Bea and his father Jay.

In reply to Knurled. :

I was thinking more rich eccentric uncle like H Ross Perot.  I was the Wally the third at one time but it was easier to get it removed from my SS card than added to my license when the state needed them to match to hire me.

I actually do that, but it's because Pete is my second middle name.

My screen name apparently built a mid-engined turbocharged MGB and then drove it to a sixth-place finish at the Solo Nats so I am not changing a thing!  It's in the magazine so it must be true..........

I can find the last generation Cougar which was just a rebodied Escort ZX2 all day long, but that kind of goes against the spirit of finding a Cougar. It's like talking to your aunt at the bar. While technically right, it's not going to impress your friends. 

It's not a rebodied ZX2, it's a rebodied Contour/Mondeo(/X-type)

 

Sort of like how the Puma was a rebodied Fiesta.  (Or was it the Ka?)

I thought one of those could be a lot of fun with a 3.0 Duratec/Contour SVT hybrid engine swap.

To think this all started as a throwaway joke on Concours day...IIRC TheV8Kid is to blame for this. And mazdeuce never did change his name to MazCougarDeuce cheeky

Chupa-thingy?

I've dropped the "Cougar" because I thought it was pretentious.

Ah, like an old pair of underware. 

 

I still might change my board name to my given name of Thundercock Johnson II, esq. Someday.

I occasionally recall the hilarious phenomenon that was the result of this thread fondly.

Apropos of nothing, I thought of it tonight and took the time to dig it up the thread.  

I want a revival of this old GRM meme if anyone else is willing to play along for a few days.  So here is your call to arms, all of you Cougar-middle-name-having weirdos!
