RE: [T3] Purist vs. Darkside


Okay, we know how to refer to someone if their ride is really custom or
coming close to it.  But how do we refer to someone who prefers a stock
vehicle?  Or someone who only wants a *completely* stock vehicle?  I use the
words "stocker" and "purest", respectively, to indicate the difference.  As
an engineer, the two words are logical descriptors for me without any
connotations attached elsewise.  It seems that some people don't like the
terms, that they feel they carry negative implications -- why, just because
I'm a Dark Sider?  Suppose I was a stocker then would they feel the same
way?  I doubt it!  Hmmm....

Anyway, I&	hose that prefer the stock life need to get together and
find a term they aren't offended by when it's used to describe them.
