Where are all the old timers?

The only old timers (Dec 2001-Jan 2002) I see are me and Pvt Joker. OK, Emission posts once in a blue moon. They must have found something better to do.

Losers are defined by number of posts.

Dr. Phil drops in every now and again, but is he considered an "Old Timer"?

I consider anyone who's been here before me an Old Timer, then again, I'm barely not a newb.

Only 27 posts in 5 years Dave? When you hit a rediculous number of posts do you start over again?

i was told by rizzo about this thread. i'm posting to see if i'm 2001 or 2002. (too lazy to check my profile) i'm now going to grad school and carless. looking to buy a beater for driving around town as i'm sick of buses, walking and mooching rides off others. [edit: i see i'm not quite an old timer by dave's standards]
