    Tell us how you came up with your screen name

    I'll start......I got my name from my favorite player Deion Sanders, aka PrimeTime. He was the best at what he did and the only player to win back to back Superbowls on 2 different teams and how many players have played in a World Series and a Superbowl? He could do it all in football, play on defense, offense or even special teams. Can't wait 'till he goes into The Hall of Fame this year.

    mine is because i was watching a tv show a few years ago (at least 5) and it was about cars and it was talkinging about the pagani zonda. i thought it was an amazing looking car and i guess i mis heard the speed figures in the show because i thougth it went 300+ mph it was probably kph though. and i heard some where on there i think " fastest car" but it probably was "isnt the fastest car" or something. but anyway i thought it was cool and whenn i went to do runescape i put in zonda but theyb wouldnt let me do it so they had me have a number and they were all arround 95 and i picked 95 becasue it is one year off from my birth year so i dont give away info. that was 4th or 5th grade and i still think the zonda is one of the best looking cars ever and still my favorite car. and ui use zonda95 for pretty much every username i have or i add an extra letter if they wont let me use it like on psn its zonda95a

    Grand National because ever since I laid my eye on a turbo charged GN, i've been in love. Most of my usernames are cars or trucks, and this one happened to be my favorite car. My favorite truck is a Dodge Cummins ANY year.

    Obviously my first name followed by my birth year(81). I used to play a lot of online games and I always used sR(initials). I believe I tried using that on here but it was to short

    I used to downhill long board and ride street bikes alot... it felt like surfing on the pavement... so when I needed a screen name for a forum (were talking over 10 years ago) I just figured it was a cool name... but when I first typed it in I missed the first "E" in pavEment.... but i clicked "create profile" before i saw what id done. I figured, who cares.... and its benefited me since... NO ONE ever has my screen name. I did come across a guy with the correct spelling once... but not spelled my way.

    Did a combo on mine. First half is genX since I am part of that generation.
    Second half is because sometimes my mind is X-rated. Okay, maybe alot of the time...

    We have a lawncare business. A long time ago we had some zero-turn mowers called the Hustler Super-Z. They were really fast (they had smaller wheels on the back since you could wheelie with them on asphalt, no lie) and I liked them. I joined this forum back when we had them, so I used that name. And, since then, it's been my forum name on a few other sites. So, ya know, if someone from here is on one of those sites they can easily find me hahahaha

    Mine was a necessity due to various reasons ( ), but it is the name of my website. Thinking about it, it doesn't make a huge amount of sense since the url is totally unrelated, as is my previous ( main ) user name. Meh, it's all good
    Keeping the Mods busy is my specialty...

    The whole harry part is a long story that I'm not at liberty to talk about. Not my real name, but I answer to it.


    And the 697 part................................well that's taking it back quite a ways. Way back when people still rode an occasional 2-stroke.

    Army of Darkness, are you telling me you don't cut down hordes of undead with your chainsaw hand and sawed-off shotgun in your spare time? I'm dissapointed, to say the least.

    Why Mr. V, you didn't explain your username.

    Mine I made back in 03 I think and I have no idea where it came from. I was pretty young and just got my Rustler and someone probably picked it for me.
    Some like R/C's that are fast, others like nitro

    Had a buddy who called me captain all the time cause I grew up on the water and my dad actually is a licensed captain, up to 300 tons, pretty sure that's where he took it from and I have a rusty, so figured why not combine the two since no one else had it haha. All I know is it's a lot better than the dumb names I had back in the early teen days, don't know what I was thinking all them years ago looking back now.
