foul mouthed Hib Halverson slurs on Corvette Museum listserv

I have a family NCM membership -- it's good to see my money being spent on things such as a foul-mouthed-soapbox for the writer known as Hib Halverson.

Read what I have in my in-box and what was sent to everyone on the ZR1 listserv at the Corvette Museum:

Reply-To: "H. Halverson" <[email protected]>
Sender: "ZR-1 Corvette enthusiast list." <[email protected]>
From: "H. Halverson" <[email protected]>

'
Oh BFD!! - I THINK THS MEANS BIG FUCKING DEAL'..

My own, Super Secret GM Rumors web site (not to be confused with Steve Jobs' "Super Secret Apple Rumors site") has posted on it confidential GM documents about the new LT10 which is a fuel-cell/nuclear/hybrid powertrain capible of 1000hp and 55 mpg.

So, DigitalCorvettes, how's them apples?

You sure this is from him? I would hope a professional writer would know how to spell "CAPABLE".

Who even listens to that guy?

CAC would be twice as big as CF if that guy wasn't pulling on Rob's pigtails.

He is poison.

Don't let it bother you, you could go do a Mr. Clean Auto Dry review and you'll be as cool as him.

Oh, and he's a really piss poor pseudo-journalist, too.

All JMHO, of course. No slander intended, nor implied. Anyone who cares to pay money to read Mr. Halverson's inane drivvle is perfectly free to do so as far as I'm concerned....

but I'd rather spend my money on shock therapy.

The other wierd thing about those two is that they live within five miles of each other....

Maybe it's something in the water in SoCal.

I think we are all 'legends in our own minds' at some point in life . . . and then we grow up and out of it. Some just sort of get stuck there and they wallow in shallowness. Frankly, I feel sorry for most of these folks. He seems stuck too.

He dislikes me, that's fine as it makes sense; me, I feel sorry for him most of the time. Not all of the time....

Matter of fact he even managed to piss me off once as I think I tweaked his ego. I learn from just about everyone as do most, I feel he learns from none.

Hib, if you see this, the "name dropper" is still around. I just don't have to listen to you anymore..

Hib Halvorson - don't know him, don't need to know him. Best way to handle him is to completely ignore everything he says and writes. Turn your back on him, make him persona non grata whereever he goes.
