I am thinking that "beginner" doesn't sound like someone between tire-kicker and enthusiast. Maybe it should be something like "Enthusiast Kicker" or some such. Then "Newbie" could become "FNG"... just ramblin'.... (trying to get up past 100 posts, to be honest...)
Be a good dad to your kids and phone your mom twice a week...
I vote for this to be the next crusade now that picture tests have been put to rest. Look at it this way and then put it to bed.
You are a newbie when you first hear of Mustangs etc.
Then you start looking for one, so you are a tire-kicker.
You finally buy one so you are now a beginner in the Mustang hobby, etc.
Eventually you will begin working on it, wrench turner...
And so on. Did not take much thought to figure this one out. Let's give the "Now I'm a Beginner" posts a rest please /forums/images/icons/smile.gif
