This Is The First Post!
Yes, I know, very original title. And to all you post whores out there (who may or may not refer to themselves as "P05T WH0R3S", or some variant thereof...) who are desperate to have the first post or reply in a thread - Jealous much? I mean, it doesn't get much better than creating your own board and then having the first, fresh post on it. Almost as good as cracking open a fresh bottle of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey and having your first glass.
Plus, after many hours of downloading and uploading files, install scripts, editing php and CSS files, image editing, and all the other things that go into hatching a new custom blog site (as well as the majority of a 12 pack of Miller lite...), I'm a little short on creativity right now. So, hence the pathetic title.
But, on to the point of this pointless post. A while ago (post-Christmasey time), my bro (and Tunachuckers team captain, so I've been told?) Mike asked me to make a bloggey-type-thingie for his website (he's not so technically gifted when it comes to computers and technology...) So, some research and virtual elbow-grease later, I came up with this blog for the Tunachuckers LeMons racing team!
Now, the whole team (and several other contributors, as well as their 3 fans) can post all about their adventures without requiring any knowledge of HTML, FTP, or any other computer-related acronyms! I'm sure at some points I'll have to update the main site for them as well, but for the day-to-day minutia, feel free to come here to hear all the rantings of several mad-men as they hammer away at their Sweedish engineering marvel!
Also, Mike has been posting some Tunachuckers-related articles over at Roadflares.org that I will be re-posting here for continuity and your reading enjoyment. Unfortunately, I can't repost comments though. Still, I suggest you head over to that site once you are done here as there is a lot of other good stuff over there (even if it's not Tunachuckers-related).
Well, that's all for now. T-Minus 13 days and counting until the LeMons Southern Discomfort race at the Carolina Motorsports Park in Kershaw, SC! So, stay tuned and see what happens!
Wheeee! We have a blog! I hear all the kids these days talking about this blog stuff. Now we can do it, too! Thanks, Mr. Admin, for bestowing upon us this awesome priveledge. Now, if only I could post....

BTW, you might want to add a few names to "The Tunachuckers Are:"
McCall is another driver and teammate
We also have a few people who help work on the car and don't drive. You might want to mention them, too:
Then there's some Tuna women:
Possibly other people, too...

Congadulations Pitt its a blog. Nice job now we can get in off topic discusions on two blogs instead of one.

And I can enjoy your horrible spelling and atrocious grammer twice as often!
Seriously, when are you going to quit racing go-karts and do some serious racing, like LeMons? ;-)

I might be coaxed into the driver seat ;) since I won't get my fix of racing this season. I try to spell check but don't often have time. I have a better command of numbers than letters.

@VCH -> Do you have any last names for any of these mysterious members or do you want to add to the mystery and allure of the 'chuckers by having members such as "Another Matt" listed on the site? Maybe we could also list by name and handle on the blog so people won't be confused... What do you think?
Also, I was trying to keep the list of "members" to only those who drive and/or wrench on the car on a regular basis. I can list the "Tunachuckers Groupies" below that though if you want.

Alright you and your silly categories... I am not just a Tuna woman (no offense to the Tuna women I heart)... Gary and I tore the car apart via Volvo manual last time, and I believe I did a hell of a lot of sanding/painting/accumulation of paint in my nose/painting/more painting...

Oh, AND the re-wiring of the car when VCH caught the damn thing on fire... SUs... Last time I checked, there's a third of a car set up in the living room ;-)
