  • following constraints of the medium/environment
  • still knocking socks off in the process
who's gonna be the lucky fanatic?
I am confused.

So you come in here down talking the avatars some people have by saying if they loved their corvette as much as they say they do, they would have a better avatar, one that features their car better?? Is that what you are trying to say??
So then you (the all knowing avatar god) come to the rescue, telling us how to make a good avatar and giving us your expert examples.

Personaly I dont have to defend my work, becuase the people that I make them for like what I do ,and that is all that counts.

Plus the sole purpose of an avatar is not to only feature the car one owns, but to also feature otherthings in a persons life that means something to them.

You do have good ideas, although you voice them in a arrogant manner of sorts.

Thank you. And although a nice touch, I think I'll pass on that acronym: TAKAG. Sounds foreign, or at least like I have something stuck in my throat.

I agree. That IS exactly for which you should strive.

You're right again.

I do? Or I don't? C'mon, what's it going be? Arrogant? Competent? Humbly Confident?

Seriously, I was simply throwing my hat into the ring–– in a benevolent-avatar-maker kind of way.
And as a newbie, at least in THIS forum, I momentarily forgot about turning off my sarcastic toungue-in-cheek machine.
But heck, let's end the hi-jack now, and grant youngs98 his request, eh?

i agree, it is a lame name.
but at least it will remind you what your last name is. And when you joined yahoo as a bonus!!! Yah-hooooo!

seriously though, what would you like in your avatar? any particular vette pix from your gallery? a special saying of which you're fond?
and as to your being where you are presently but for a short period of time. given the brief research i performed on you, i surmised you were in the military and but 'stationed' in Georgia-- certainly not forced to live their by choice. Hence my reference "only my vette is on MY mind"

so, you tell me-- whatcha looking for? nekkid women? completely chromed engines? a 600hp that knox the sox off of any 2006?

Well I'm not very funny and defintely not original (as you could tell from my name)...I like the one you did...maybe with just the Z51 on there though. And what was with that "nottahippocrit" watermark on the bottom?

Thanks...

DEWD! what, are you currently in the process of drinking multiple beverages of alcholic content?
Take a fricken look at your signature! based on my research, it appears from some of your posts that you're not afraid to, how shall we say it... um, go fast?

So, based on that fact, and your signature, i was simply guessing that you indeed were: "not a hypocrite"

oh well, so much for creative license.



i'll work something up of which you'll be proud... i think?
