How many forum members have you met in person?

I've met five: Quahog, Thayer, JB3, Wittenberger, and Brian Carlton. All great guys.

If I every make it to the annual RI ChowdahQ I'll meet a lot more I'm sure.

You?

You met me at the last get together. I had the grey 300SD.

Gearhead and I do a lot of wrenching together here in Dallas. He has been a great help on some of my projects.

I met daw_two when I bought my dash from him.

Everyone seems to be nice and helpful.

To date I've met super star Delibes on one of his many travels and Govert (from here and BW)

I may have met vstech in 1976 when I went to the same school as him but I don't remember him in particular.

it's unlikely we were in that school at the same time... I was there in 78/79... I left when the Ayatollah Khomeini gained power...

It would be hard for me to count, as there are so many. My brother and I have organized many GTG's and cruises, and meet new forum members every time. I am sure the list would be longer than Charlie's (charmalu), but don't know the exact count. I know it is not a competition, so I will not even try to list them. However, I have to say that this forum is a wonderful place to hang out and meet great people (sometimes even in person). With more future drives planned, I am sure I will meet more forum members....Rich

Edit: It is also nice to meet the cars too!
