We're from New England ... home of the best clam and lobster chowder! Drop the "er" from chowder ... replace it with either an "a" or "ah" and there you have our funny accent ... it's all about the CHOWDAH!

My first screen name ever was "Freak Show" but at many places it's already taken. I had to come up with another name, so I went French and chose "Exposition Anormale". Usually, I shorten it to "exposition" now.

Story behind mine is pretty self explanatory as for as Checkmate2006 because I have a 2006 Checkmate but I do get a lot of this from other MINI's " Do you play chess" I tell them no its just a unique package MINI had for 1 year. I also have euro plates on the front and rear with 06-CHKMTE and all kinds of people ask me what i means and when it tell them its short for 2006 Checkmate.

Mine is adult rated..

I had a rental 2007 MC convertible for about two weeks while my truck was in the shop. Thats how I fell in love with the Mini.. So one day my girlfriend and I went to her friends wedding. On the way home, with the top down we started messing around. Looked at the spedo and noticed I was going 110mph on the highway. Didn't even feel like it was going that fast.

So Bang110 was the little name we came up with.

i used to have the license plate STNLESS on my Delorean and countless people would say to me “so you think you’re SINLESS huh?”

i said, “no... the car is made of STAINLESS steel”

Mine shows my age. Back when the Internet was first a thing, I signed up for a Compuserve account. They were limited to 6-8 characters, and I created mine as a combination of my initials and the first few letters of my last name. Out of sheer laziness, I still use it on a lot of things 25+ years later.

Mine is a smash of Steph and Danika (like the racecar driver) because I used to race cars myself. My car number was 515.
Stephika, its a household name. :P

I always rode a BMW [Beemer] motorcycle and was a Chef for over 50 years. Hence "Beemerchef". I forget who ever came up with that one!
