    Hi Lee, welcome on the board. Is that a pic of
    your 2002 racer?

    Conrad, I dont get why you are called conrod,
    unless your buddies are pronouncing your name
    "conrod". I thought it had something to do with
    connecting rods :) So what is the story with that?

    John <--- yes that is my real name

    probably because I am a bit of a car nut, (understatement!) "Conrod" just became the obvious nickname (as an abbreviation of connecting rod)
    Besides, I like that name better than "condom" which is what the people who will not be friends with me for much longer call me!

    Martin <- real Name

    and no I have never heard the comment "Houston, we have a problem!" :D
