Remember when the AOL boards were THE way to meet and chat? I met Art Anderson and a few other people there that I still see around

Couple people I fell out of touch with.

Mike Maze-older fella with a young daughter. I think he was from Indiana, bought and sold new and old kits.

1967BVille - older biker guy who loved, you guessed it, his 67 Bonneville. I met him once, shorter guy, he did a crazy custom extended Plymouth Voyager van. I think he was from Indiana too.

Poppa,

You are bringing back some memories here! How well I remember the "revolt" against AOL, and their inability to monitor their Scale Modeling Chat Room in the spring of 1967, the chat room hosts being more than willing to let toy train enthusiasts butt in on what was supposed to be OUR time in that room (one hour a week, on Saturday nights, from 8-9pm. So, Penmod (Marty Obermann) and I conspired to set up our own private model car chat room, which overnight grew so large, we opened up Model Car Chat II (remember that?) to accommodate another 33 chatters, and we still had people lined up at the door!

MIke M is still around, I talked to him in person just a couple of weeks back. Marty isn't doing any model cars anymore, but we still IM once in a while. NMexArch (David Pye from suburban Albuquerque) and Steve 1/2 (his then newborn son) were at GSL in 2005, it was cool to watch Steve 1/2 sweep the Junior Class Awards at the age of 7. Jairus Watson was a regular there, and he's still coming into model car chat rooms today.

But, those were the days, weren't they? If there is interest, I will post up a link to a model car chat room that in so many ways, is very much the same as we enjoyed, 10-12yrs ago, on AOL.
