President & CEO of General Motors.



Most of you guys are very rude and ignorant!!  I know minthess personally and he is really a very nice guy.  And yes I have agreed with most everything he has posted.  And yes I too am a die hard Ford guy!

Funny, I tend to think that interjecting one point of view into nearly every conversation - many of which have nothing to do with his point - is rude. I'm sure he's a nice guy - he's never broke out and attacked anyone, which is commendable, but man - it just got old. I can understand being passionate about it but there are times to give it a break.

I enjoyed the various ways he could interject the ford angle into most any conversation. 

im a ford guy but couldn't care less what type of engine is under the hood but wouldn't it be funny if the 15 unveiled the new motor soon and won!!  I said at the outset it wouldn't be out till after Knoxville and likely not till the WoO crown is locked up.

I want to thank everyone for chatting over the last couple decades.  I figure I am close to 3000 posts because I was unchevy for a good while before minthess.  I wish everyone well and am glad for all of you that truly enjoy what our sport is.  With NASCAR's money and terrible ethics permeating sprint car racing so badly, it's just not good for me to be here any longer.  With my beloved Ford officially announcing a "Ford" engine for TSR and then simply putting stickers on the car, the perfectly acceptible lies are just too obvious for me to take.  With average small block chevy worshiping Tony taking his dirty NASCAR money and buying his own car to compete with, a sanctioning body, the best race track and the dominant national team, anything real was over before it ever started anyways.  Take care.  All the current BIG DOGS, and I mean that literally, that think they are something can't carry Casey Luna's mud scraper.    



3000 posts and you never learned when it was appropriate and how to do it effectively.  If your idea was to further support for a Ford platform, you most likely succeeded in further alienating people with rude, untimely, innapropriate posts.   I have 2 Ford 360 sprint engines and I dislike your sarcasm, just like this last post.

If that actually happens, I GUARANTEE Minthess will be back

I'm sure he is.  I'm sure you know though, that it is possible to be a nice guy and still be an irritating menace on a message board. I think  I'd have loved his shtick if he was just trolling, but he would interject his stuff into the most random of threads and it was absolutely aggravatin. I'd imagine his every day interactions are something like this....

Minthess: "........ Meanwhile Casey Luna shirts bring over $100 on eBay and yet teams are still too afraid of the good stuff to get away from the small block Chevy."

Home Depot clerk: "Sir, who is Casey Luna? You asked me for a recommendation of a good oil based deck stain and I pointed to aisle 18. I dont know what else to tell you.

Or......

Waitress: ".. and what'll you have to drink?"

Minthess: "Coffee."

Waitress: "Cream and sugar, Hun?"

Minthess: "Canted valves...."

Waitress: (quizzical look on her face) "Huh?"

Minthess: "CANTED VALVES!!!"

Waitress: (horrified look on her face while slowly backing up) "We don't have that here."

Minthess: "Neither do my local racetracks...." (sobs uncontrollably into his paper placemat)

 

By the way, this is NOT my last post. As Salaam Alaikum.

     I dunno. That's a pretty broad condemnation considering that you don't know 99.99% of us.

     I see it this way- minthess decided for a big, attention-getting, dramatic, woe-is-me, pitty-party, kiss-off goodbye event. These are pretty common on the ol' internets. They are meant to stir up things by riling up friends and foes of the aggrieved party, in hopes of providing entertainment for same.It appears that minthess got his wish.  You should be happy for him

Would make sense if he had a hard-on for 360s instead of Fords.

I like Fords too...will miss the posts.

but this place is essentially on life support compared to the golden years...just like the tracks that don't keep up with the times.


Lincoln 1845 ft/.35 mile T1=118MPH 
Eldora 2287 ft/.43mile T3=135MPH
Port 2716 ft/.51 mile T3=TBD
Grove 2792 ft/.53 mile T3=135MPH
Selinsgrove 2847 ft/.54 mile T1=136MPH

 I can't let you get away without debating your signature. won 2 world of outlaws championships against the best in their prime? You do realize in 89 none of the big three really ran the outlaw tour, and the other year Steve went NASCAR, Wolfie  was hurt, and Sammy had perhaps his worst year ever in that Jenkins car.  Don't get me wrong, Dave Blaney was fast in that car but not because of what was under the hood. Actually Sammy was trying to drive a truck.

Thought Schatz was still trying to run a Ford next year?

Hope so. Was hoping we might be able to see someone else win the WoO championship next year Smile
