Stole it off a mate about 7 years ago who shared the same name as me, he was into fox moto stuff and had fox stickers all over his bike so people called him stevo on a fox, stevofoxono.
Just sounded cool and from memory the other steve didn't use the net so I started using it for everything, was a hell of a lot cooler then the nicknames people could come up for me back in school lol

Well, how I got my daggy, gaylord username.........
It came years ago, when I had a Valiant pacer, using a Valiant forum. Every cool name I could think of was gone, so i ended up with "allthegoodnamesgoneman".
Then when I sold it and got a Z again, I didn't want it to relate to my car. Lucky as it was a 240Z and now have the 280.
And guess what?
I love going fast. So I Luvemfast
Thought about changing it, but then no-one would know who the hell I am.
And its grown on me, much like the HS130  ;D

Many years ago there was a beer commercial on TV where the team was in the club rooms
drinking beer and then a big guy put his drink down and went out to bat, belted the crap
out of the bowlers then came back and drank more beer. That was basically my cricketing
style also so the others guys started calling me his name .  LEDGE

Great thread and certainly explains what I thought were some pretty stupid names. But when explained make sense.
One thing I would also like to see is actual photo's of peoples cars for their avatar picture. I know most people do, but it does help people identify them, the user with their car. Just a thought.
Keep them coming though boys and girl.  ;)

Mine is rather simple actually, my first name is Adam and I was good at maths when I was a little tacker. It's just what my family has called me for years.  8)

Mine is a forum name I had used on other as well, basically the rego number of my old ZG Fairlane, that happened to have a 302 in it.

Got the n7umber plate when I moved up to Qld and they were still only $55 for the retro re issues and that particluar plate was available and I also found out was originally issued within 18 months of the car being built.

The Fairlane is long gone, but can't be arsed changing my using name

Again, not a tough one, my partner and I have a 240z Tarmac Rally car.  Also convenient as RXX and SXX retro plates are now available for re-issue in SA.

I guess mine is an amalgamation of a couple of nicknames.

Quite a few moons ago, I had a humerous tumble out of a tree and fell on a mate below, hence I got dubbed 'the dropbear' (happens when you get dared to do stupid stuff  ::) ).

The other part of my name arrived as a result of growing many beards and hence getting known as 'Fuzzy'..

Went to join a forum and needed a unique username and ended up with Fuzzy Dropbear.

Mine goes back to my karting days.  In juniors at times we were less worried about who won the race and more concerned about who could pull off the biggest scandinavin flick, otherwise known as a scando.

John = first name &
Boy = first three letters of my last.

Gav240z = Gavin 240z - It works because not many 240z owners and Gavin is not that common for a name I guess. So i rarely can't use it when signing up to websites.

I wish there was an interesting story behind mine but ....

I've been known as Maygs since I was a kid, as it's a shortened verion of my last name.

Replaced the 's' with the 'Z' since I joined this forum.

Yeah, it would suit better if I was into drifting or rallying rather than circuit racing
