Yipee! Rivet Master!

Well I've finally reached 500 posts! I can remember "lurking" on the forum last year, reading the posts of the "Rivet Masters" and thinking - "Wow, these people know everything! They are all such experienced owners, mechanics and restorers! I hope I can get there someday."

Well I think you let one slip through!

The funny thing about it now, 500 post later, is that I really know very little about my AS. I've just had about 500 questions to ask of the rest of you so far!

So thank you all for helping me out this past year! I know that I could not have had the ownership experience I've had so far without this forum.

Thanks!

PS - Is there a hat or special handshake for Rivet Masters? Do I need to ride around in circles on little Airstreams at rallies? Do I get free pot luck for life? - Actually do I want free pot luck for life?

yes, well, you are not alone. some of us have the most posts because we ask the most questions...because we are the most clueless.

Congrats Steven!

Now as I approach Master status, I can't wait to join the exsclusive club. I have questions too. I wonder if there is a ceremony? Any oaths? Pledges? Do you get special powers? Special handshakes?

Congrats Steven... one of the best kept secrets of the Forums is that the "Rivet Masters" become the servants who MAKE and SERVE at the potlucks! hmmm...

I told him I would be up all night posting to everything I could find....

He abruptly notified me "NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!"


LOL....Memories of becoming a rivet master....are stories to be told at forum rallys.....
