Usernames Explained.

Looking around the forum at usernames and I can't help but try to figure out some of their meanings and how they were thought of.
A few I would guess are pretty obvious. Feel free to explain yours.

LESDOIT ( my personalized plate and self explanatory ), a general term saying I'm up for it, but does not solely mean "let's race", but it does include it.

Disclaimer: I don't condone street racing but am guilty of a few.

2015 SLIHRM A6, roof, spare, VCM intake, Ported TB, Elite Catch Can, HSRK, Vitesse T/Controller, JBA axle back, 15mm front/20mm rear Motorsport tech wheels adapters, tint.

My clutch foot needs something to do. The manual was the #1 priority for buying this car.

It's memorable enough. I hate commenting on someone and needing to click back or scrolling back up because I can't remember exactly how to spell their username or what numbers are in it.

Also, if i'm honest, Pandora was playing Club Foot by Kasabian when I was making an account.

I love DSM's! I have had DSM's in my life for a couple decades. I have had some pretty quick DSM's. They were a heck of a good platform.
I still have a DSM, it just dosent get used anymore. It needs to find a new home.
Anyone want a 550ish awhp 2800lb car for 6k? It's only 28 years old! It's a pretty mild setup.

I was first called Spaz in Year 7 of school... partly a derivative of my last name, mainly because... well... please look away if you're a PC person... mainly because I'm a bit of a Spastic! Remember when you could call people that? Anywho's, it became my username online. Back in 1989 or 1990, I was Spaz on IRC (Internet Relay Chat).. the first one, as far as I know. Which makes me the first "Spaz" on the internet.

I'm just glad I wasn't born a few years later.. because instead of Spaz, they would have called me something like 'Tard

No complaints... I told you PC people to look away. Not my fault if you don't read warning labels.

LESDOIT - great thread starter!


I figured I'd be one of the very few SS owners in the great flyover state of Nebraska. I believe the only others on this forum that I've seen are "dohc8" and "NE17SS". I'm sure some others will pop out of the woodwork over time. I have yet to run into another SS in Omaha though (population about 500,000).

Willy92.

Willy is probably obvious, my name is William as was my dad, but most people called him Willy.

92 was derived from the number 292 taped to my car during my first SCCA driving school. After I got my Racing License I was asked if I wanted a permanent number. I chose 92. Hence Willy92.

Previous vehicles:
2015 Cadillac SRX Premium(current wifes car)
2003 Silverado(SOLD 12/2019)
1991 454SS(stolen)
2002 Infiniti Q45(traded in on SS)
1988 Mazda RX7-Anniversary Edition
1986 Mazda RX7 Sport(race car)
1983 Mazda GLC(race car)
1973 Mazda RX2(race car)
1981 Mazda GSL(bought new)
2007 Cadillac STS-V
1999 Cadille Seville STS
1995 Cadillac Eldorado
1990 Cadillac Eldorado
2002 TransAm Firehawk
1977 TransAm - Black and Gold Bandit Ed.
...that's far enough

I still do my accounting in a paper ledger/ still trying to live in the stone age when I can so when I needed a user name I wanted to keep it simple so MN SS and of course Heron White is something I should not forget.

Motorcycle rider here. Even though I sold her several years back, I once had a Honda RC51 sportbike and the name just stuck with me. Seems like I get a new bike every other year and it is too hard changing usernames.
