Fordforums Member Nicknames
I was browsing on the Holden forums and go the idea from there, since we have alot of new members joining up lately i would like to start a discussion of hwta everyones user nick derived from and the story behind it.
Ok I'll start, when i first joined BON (First forums i've joined) i decided to use EF_Falcon_GuY as i owned an EF wagon, reason for the underscores is becuase BON didn't allow for split words as nicks. I guess the GuY bit of the nick is cause thats what i am and the fancy capital Y is because i thought it looked good.
Now since i own an XR6, i changed the nick to start with XR (and keeping same underscore format so people whould know who i am). The strider part came from a dodgy pic that xr8chic took of me and i had a really really wierdo stance for some reason.
The stance looked like me striding, and i also decided to use strider as i'm kind of abit of an athletic person and remember my running training with words of "keep up the stride". So contrary to what people think it doesn't really relate to any movie.
