Is my head big enough yet?

On Wiki, I was the first one to lay the smack down on the Range Rover guys as to why the Wag was considered the first luxury SUV, ya know. Well, with lots of help from Richard Truesdell and his excellent article "Move Over, Range Rover!"

Turns out people DO read Wikipedia. Brooks Stevens, the features of early Wagoneers, the Super Wagoneer...that was all me. I even edited the Range Rover articles and had a few heated debates over there.

Then these lazy marketers, "journalists" and Chrysler execs read the article and voila! We have a new Grand Wagoneer and a revived interest in these old forgotten buckets. Forget the Wagonmaster.... I guess you can say that I'm singlehandedly responsible for all of this...and I will now be suing Chrysler to get my piece of the retro SUV pie.

Nice to see we are not forgotten. Good/bad is now others will be looking to save some of them and prices will go up, for everything associated with them.

I think Flint IS her alter ego....or is it the other way around?

Both are top of the food chain as far as good folks

Haven't had the pleasure of meeting either, but I'm fairly certain I could tell them apart in person

Kinda hard to tell if that was Krista posting under Flint's handle though

He was talking about Flint correcting the misinformed in the Hemmings article comment section. There were a few folks that were talking out their bottoms.

Ahhhh, you've never met Charlie! If you had you'd let him call you anything he wanted! His handle is Bigun for a reason!
