This whole Grandpa thing....

I have known Grandpa Henry on this forum for a long long time. And he has been involved with many many discussions. I seem to remember i never ever suspected him to be a fake, i mean, the XB GT story, he never shut up about his missus, and even the fact I can remember him a long time before I remember you Mr Fonz. While Im not calling anyone a bullshit artist or anything at all, im just curious as to whether this in fact is a way of saying sayonara to GH quietly after the flack he has copped on this lately.

I too was sceptical about the mechanical side of the 'Uber' EA, but it was a VERY convincing story, and told in very chronological order. I dunno, perhaps Im feeling like a toss for being led on once again (remember VNMAN) but its something I felt like bringing up

Anyone else got anything to say?

If this dude isnt real, Welcome to the Forums as your own identity Mr Fonz!!!! Hope you get your EA back to great cond. Soon.

Yes The Fonz is very welcome here, and needs to make no apologies. I spoke to him at length this evening. Here are the facts:

* Grandpa is a 17 year old who is an apprentice mechanic
* In addition to using the Grandpa name, the vast majority of previous 'The Fonz' messages were by him. That has now changed, of course with the real Fonz finding out what is going on.
* The Fonz (the real Fonz) attended a recent FF meet due largely to being informed of it by 'Grandpa'. The Fonz's name is Ben (yep another one! ).

WTF is going on?
I've been away from the forums for about a week so I'm a bit behind on the gossip.
Whats this about Grandpa Henry being a fake and how was the conclusion made?

The expose was made on this thread:

http://discussions.fordforums.com/sh...threadid=19375

It's a shame because Grandpa was a real character... but this kind of thing cannot be tolerated on any forum.

mad This is F#####

I agree with Sik.I have been on this forum for a very long time and Grandpa was part of the furniture.Its great to see that we are all being used as SUCKA"S.Who's White EA is in the Members section of the eafalcon.com page is that yours Fonz??Apparently its Grandpa's what a crock of shit.Hopefully there is not anyother fakes on this site.I have just posted some infro regrading the Super EA to Fonz I hope its not a laugh for those involved.

Fonz you have a real good mate there.I can't believe we fell for it and secondly The Fonz didn't pick it up like a year earlier.

We shall prove our idenities at E series meets Australia wide.I have nothing to hide do you??

Cya Lukey.
