10 years... man I can't believe it's been that long. And I've been around for a lot of it. I joined shortly after I bought my GA back in june of 2000. It's funny, I was searching around for grand am stuff and found pfyc.com, then found a*d central and after a not so warm welcome started looking for other forums. Found this site and never looked back. First mods where a K&N filter in the stock air box and SLP cat back. 2 1/2 years into ownership I had seen the magnacharger kit and heard it was being discontinued and jumped in head first.... and it all snowballed from there. :D

I must say it's been quite a ride, and the community has changed a lot over the years, as have I. I went from a kid who didn't know anything, to a kid who thought he knew everything, to a slightly older kid who knows a lot about GA's but enough to know he doesn't know everything. :) I got in plenty of flame wars back in my day though and got banned a few times as well. I gotta laugh when I go back and look at some of my posts, even from like 4 years ago. lol

I do kinda miss the old GAP days. I wish there were more events where GA owners could get together, but it doesn't seem people are as serious about the platform anymore or have the time/money to travel to meets half way across the country. Since the car is getting older too the average age of the owners has dropped. Despite that, the performance level has continued to rise, but the investment and development has been slow, and the number of "extreme" builds are few and far apart in distance.

It has been one hell of a time though and I really would have missed this place if it was gone! Definitely gotta say thanks to Jeremy and Ryan for all the time, work, and money they've put in over the years to keep this place going! Hopefully it says around for a long time to come.


PS. I still think the funniest thing I've ever heard related to this site was at GAP '03. Bob walks into Jeremy's room and says "hi, I'm Bob... Amraam." and Jeremy says " I don't know if I want to punch you or shake your hand!" lol

PPS. It was also at GAP '03 that SPAZ, Jaketuff, and I caravanned back from the track to the hotel... three MC blown GA's cutting through traffic while talking on the walkie's... I don't think such a "gathering of the greats" has happened since or ever will again.

"AJ at GrandAmGT.com" hardly pops into my mind at all at any other point in my life outside this forum.

i dont even remember when i joined for sure. i was in high school, no just out of it, and engaged. im now married, and have a second child on the way. ive been a long way since the grand am got totaled, but i still miss her. my latest passion, *and slightly cheaper* is berettas. and there is probably the same kind of following.

I must admit, i now hold a certificate in automotive and i owe that to the grand am.

I assure you GAGT.com was a part of the baby making too.. :)

I joined GAGT.com almost 10 years ago and all I got was a husband and knocked up!??! :)

Actually some of my favorite people & best friends originate from this website!

Well, I joined back in '99 right before we switched to the current style forum.

I've learned a lot from this board, lost a few family members, got married, went through three different cars, and switched Screen names. This is one board where I don't think I'll ever leave. It's part of my life now.

Started lurking here after I got my 99 GT. I learned a lot about my car and then some from the great info here. Great job by the maintainers of this site for keeping it orderly and coherent. I hope you get 10+ more years of this great community!

Wow - this thread really brings back the GAGT memories - meeting Seth to buy his SLP cat-back down in PA, swaping my manifolds for Pucci's TOG headers out in RI, swapping wheels with one of our Canadian brethern, getting 2005 calander car pictures, drag racing up in NH, autocrossing in NY and getting busted on the streets a few times. I started out here in '03 I believe, and it just went on and on from their. Bought the car in 2001, sold in '06, bought it back in '07, and put over 100k miles somewhere in there. Bought and sold countless items in the for sale forum. Posted the original "I want to make my V6 Grand Am Faster" FAQ now revised and still stickied in the performance forum. I still pop in time to time for the AAG section. This has always been, and always will be an awesome forum. I enjoy the time I spend over on LS1tech now, but this will always be me first thought when it comes to an auto-enthusiasts forum.

I still keep tabs here from time to time....it's been a long time.
I think I joined in late 2000 or 2001, and started infecting the board with Alero-speak (the horror!). Soon thereafter we all started to realize that both cars are built on the same platform and rolled down the same assembly line.
Most of the rest is a blur.....I think I've been sniffing the burning brakes for too long.
Although it's still fairly gratifying that people still ask for my advice on braking and suspension stuff.
Nothing can replace the friends I've made here.
