Well, mines not very cool but I I've had it since 1999, so it will have to do. I grew up a HUGE Star Wars fan (Original Trilogy) Then in 99 the first prequal came out, and it was the first time I remember any of the movies being referred to by their episode number. So in the order they were released, it was episode 4,5,6,1 - epi4561..
What's the story behind your user name/avatar?

The JM in my screen name is just stands for Josh M. The 485 has a bit of a longer history. Back when I was around 3 or 4 years old, my dad tried to get me into BMX racing, and that was the number the league gave me. I never caught on to racing until I was 8, but the number stuck and I have been using it on everything since.
The avatar is a picture of me at the starting line of a hillclimb. They have us start in front of a hill and you race to time to the top, and that photo was taken when I was on the line warming up the bike. I think it was from the April 2012 race.

Well, the name came about when I was at the Drags and a friend of mine came up and accidentally combined Ed Big Daddy Roth with Rat Fink! I was wearing a Rat Fink shirt and he was trying to be a smart acre! So he blurted out "Hey, Daddy Fink!" Yeah, I gave him all kinds of grief over that!!
The picture if of Legendary Mexican Singer Pedro Infante which was my late fathers favorite singer. And he is one cool looking cat!

It's an amalgamation of my first name and the first syllable of my last name; add the "ed" and it equals a state of mind in which I could often be found a few years ago(seriously). My avatar = the acronym for the club to which I belong on a tag for the state in which I can now be found.

My name was something my parents came up with. My original name I used on forums was my AOL screen name modlcitizn from back when they limited names to 10 characters. I still have that email address!
My avatar is my '55 Chevy Christmas Tree truck I built back in the early 1990s, still one of my favorite models!

Impcon is my wife's idea as an abbreviation for Impala convertible and as my avatar is a '59 Chevy wagon, you can imagine what my favorite Impala convertible is. I was asked once by a friend what would be the ultimate car if I could pick one and it was at that moment that I realized how blessed I am to actually own my all time favorite car - a virtually rust free, Snowcrest White with red interior, 348 powered '59 Impala convertible. The car was given to me by my parents in 1972 as a birthday present and I still and always will own it until I leave this world. My love of the '59 goes back to my dad's Snowcrest White '59 Brookwood four door wagon that he bought brand new and I have a real 1:1 that I plan one day on redoing to resemble Dad's. It's all about dreams, isn't it? Some come true and some do not nut if we quit dreaming, then it's all over. Just my two cents worth.

Mine is pretty easy... I like Drag Racing,from Stock classes to Top Fuel. I was lucky enough when I was younger to have crewed for a couple different local racers,a Fuel Altered, an Alcahol Dragster and then a Top Fuel Dragster.I did a lot of street racing back in the day, got in a lot of trouble, had a lot of tickets, Amazed I still alive. Thank God !

Thought I had responded to this already but there must be another thread with the same topic.
Mine is the Hood Ornament on a friend's '42 Mercury - I just liked the image, one of thousands I shoot each year.

My user name: I'm a pastor so the "rev" is for Reverend (Rev.) and shag is from an old nickname as in Shaggy from Scooby-Doo. My appetite used to resemble Shaggy's.
My avatar is the 2010 movie version of the A-Team van. I put it up as motivation as that is my current project.
