    It's tough being narcissistic, especially when you realize that nobody wants to be like you.

          Yeah all over forums dying because of stupid Facebook.

          Facebook get in your computer without you known it. When I surf eBay and bam Facebook knew what I was looking at eBay. So Iím not in Facebook anymore. They are creepy and democrats supporter.

          Many people should quit facebook like I did & feel so great since month or so.

                I have Facebook for my sub shop. I get ont here to make posts and what not. I checked out SYTY and didn't get how to get in it. Truthfully, I am not an idiot when it comes to computers but for some reason, I find Facebook extremely difficult to navigate.

                    I got out of FB in Sept 2014, and haven't looked back. Plenty of better things I could be doing with my time, than looking at everyone's "3 B's" (bragging, bitching, and brats). Plus I don't base the success or happiness of my life on "likes". Too old now to care what anyone else thinks.

                    But yeah this place had a good run... Mid-2000's was kind of it's prime. Then there was a bunch of arguing in threads which turned into locked threads, personal disputes outside of the forum, "L35-gate", doghouse scammers, the Rockford Racecraft debacle, banned members, members deleting their posts, the porn thread, and the "ASSvatars" haha. I remember if I was out of town for a weekend there'd be like 4 pages of posts I missed haha. Now it's maybe 1 or 2 posts a week. I'll still come here or the ISTR forum, before going to the shitshow FB page. Can't even watch a video on there, cause it's 2018 and people still shoot video holding the phone vertically... I just don't understand that. EVERYTHING is widescreen now, you'd think people would make the connection.

                    To truly love these trucks, you must HATE them more.

                      Good list, you forgot the Mike King shit. I ate $1,800 on that... All the Old Time forum beefs between members. I also remember the forum jumping on that Bubba guy or whetever the hell his name was. Good Times!

                      All joking aside, I had a lot of good conversations on here met some good people.

                        Oh yeah! I didn't get in on the Mike King thing, so I totally forgot about that one. I remember Bubba, everyone changing their avatars to bash him hahaha.

                        I never got into any beefs with anyone on here. Probably cause I'm the first to admit I don't know my asshole from my elbow when it comes to working on cars hahaha. But I will say, almost all of what I know now (which still isn't much) is largely because of this site, and some good folks offering up their knowledge to help everyone out.

                        These trucks have been the bane of my very existence since I got my Syclone in 2001, that truck was bad luck, so I figured it would all be different when I got my Typhoon in 06, nope... this thing is even worse! haha. But for some stupid reason... no matter how much money and time I've pissed away on these things, or when my ignition cylinder locks up and I have to get towed home... as I'm watching it get pulled up the flat bed, I still look at it and think... "damn this thing is bad ass" hahahaha. I dunno there's just something about em. I know this thing is the biggest piece of shit, money pit I've ever owned, but I can't bring myself to get rid of it. I'm sure someday I will... if I don't douse it in gasoline and light it on fire first.

                        Agreed on meeting some good peeps on here. Been a lot of people come and go since I joined, even just in SoCal... Bdubb, and George aka ManitouFS were the first guys I ever met in person... they drove out about 40min to the shop my truck was at and helped me swap my fuel pump and dial it in with datamaster. I remember Brian had a pink mullet hahaha. I'll never forget that. Ray Moore (RIP)... I wouldn't even be able to "legally" drive my Typhoon in CA if not for him. I think Paul, Scott, and Mike Lee might be the only OG SyTy'ers left in SoCal that I've met. I never met Sean Morris or DaveP. Everyone else from the early 2000's either sold off, or they don't post anymore. It's real easy to get frustrated and lose interest when these things break.
