    Hello all,

    as the title says, I am moving over from another site that is shutting down at the end of this month. I had just started there only back in august and had actually liked the small community that it was since I started to feel like I knew the people there. but it seems I caught it just as it was dying. it was asperclick.com if you are wondering and if there is anyone else coming over from there, I am Ace from there and still with same avatar so I hope to keep that same feel and sense of community here. anyways, on to actually introducing myself.

    I am a young guy who is to smart for his own good. I love the outdoors, math/science, mechanical systems, automotive engineering, off roading, being hands on, music and video entertainment, tech and computers and a lot more. I am going to school as a mechanical engineer, I was that quiet but pretty smart kid in school but have since opened up some more. I was diagnosed with Asperger's some time ago (beginning of high school or end of middle school I think) and before that, ADD (way back in elementary school). I would consider myself more mild form of Asperger's in some aspects (like social blindness) but still have that hyper analytical aspect that some have. I seem to have a pretty good grasp on my life even with the Asperger's and sometimes consider it a gift.

    also note: I could care less about proper grammer and spelling, as long as I get the point across and others can understand it. as some of you might notice, I rareley capitolise the first letter in a sentance. I hope that doesn't upset anyone since I have seen some like that on the internet. I started doing this back on the other forum and I find I really prefer to type out exactly as I naturally do without makeing so many corrections (as I found myself taking half my time to do before).

    Welcome to the Forums! I hope you make new friends and enjoy your stay in the process! :)

    I've been here for over a year and a half and I can say it's a wonderful place. Everyone's quite friendly and the staff (5 people believe it or not!) do an absolute bang up job at what they do

    Hi Scott. I used to be very active on Asperclick a while back (I am Nesf there), but left it a while ago, partly because of the inactivity, partly because of the endless conflict/bickering between a small number of members, and partly because I felt that the focus of the forum had changed from being a support forum like this one, to a platform to support the owner's you-tube channel and live streaming, something that always existed to some extent, but which never particularly interested me.

    Or how about a mid-1960's Toyota FJ45 station wagon, a truck I spotted 12 years ago... This one is rare though

    yea that would be pretty cool too. a little to long for my taste considering I want to use it off roading eventually and wheel base is important. ideally, I would want an FJ43 but those are even more rare. only made in south america for a time.
