Well, here it is... my 5000th post on GenVibe!
I took a walk down memory lane the other day... here's the very first post I ever made on GenVibe introducing myself and my Vibe
. I'm such a rebel that I made my first post in the Garage Forum instead of the Vibe Lounge
For those of you who are newcomers to GenVibe and may not be aware, my username on here used to be J TO ENVY
. It came from my previous vehicles being Pontiac Sunfires (J-Body cars). I actually even had it as a vanity license plate on my first Sunfire. When I joined here I couldn't think of a better username, so I stuck with it. Earlier this year I was getting tired of it though and ended up having an epiphany that I should change it to vibenvy
, so I started a thread asking if it was possible and the wonderful GenVibe mods made it happen for me
I have been a GenVibe member and Vibe owner for a little over four and a half years now and it has been a great experience all around. I have been lucky enough to attend a total of five GenVibe meets (Indy in 2010, Pontiac, IL in 2013 and three smaller Chicagoland meets in 2010 and 2012). I have also had the pleasure of meeting tons of my fellow GenVibe members / Vibe owners in person. I look forward to attending many more meets and meeting many more of you in the years to come. The GenVibe meets are far and away the best vehicle meets I have ever been to. Everyone instantly feels like family. There's no "My Vibe is better/faster/cooler/etc. than your Vibe." It's just a great, fun atomsphere. It's also nice not to have to worry about people driving like morons (i.e. squealing tires, street racing, etc.). I have experienced way too much of this behavior in the past and it always ended up ruining the entire experience for me
I always look forward to logging onto GenVibe to check out the latest posts. I get a huge kick out of seeing what everyone's doing with their Vibes and of course to show off our Vibes as well. It also makes me feel great when I can help a fellow GenVibe member / Vibe owner with a question or issue they may have. I have of course gotten plenty of help from other members myself and I assure you it is very much appreciated. GenVibe is the only place that my unusually accurate memory for Vibe part numbers and info really comes in handy and is appreciated
Well, I guess that's enough of my rambling for now. In closing I have one thing to say...
