Mike,

Only one of the best???

I became interested in building a website for my cars, and he was also playing with website design, so we used to bounce ideas back and forth.

One day around 2003/04 he called me and told me he had new software that would allow him to build a car forum, wondered what my thoughts were. Agreed it would be very cool, and Lateral-G was born.

He and I were both Administrators, but he was the creativity and driving force behind the site. I just helped out with moderating, tried to take as much pressure off of him as I could. After several years of owning the site he had new interests (photography) and in May of 2012 I took over the site, and he pursued his camera work.

I spoke with him a few days ago. His photography has really taken off, and he's having a ball with it. No surprise at all, he is very creative and has a great eye for what looks good. You can check out what he's doing at Gulbranson Photo.

I now handle all the day to day operations along with a great group of moderators, without whom I'd be in trouble. I've learned how to do the features and site design changes, and love the design process in web work. Most people never even knew I took over a year and a half ago, and that's a good thing. That means we're still heading the same direction that Scott invisioned. Without our members and vendors this site would not be what it is, but without Scott it never would have even existed.
Awesome, it's amazing how an idea can transition into something like this. Oh and Jody I see you just hit 10,000 posts, but you've got a long way to go to catch Greg and I don't think he's slowing down. Even at his advanced age

Bob when you log in and put the arrow on your name it shows up on the bottom left of your screen, at least it does on mine.

I've met dudes here I consider to be close friends. And we all live a foot away from each other on a globe.

Lateral-G has been a driving force behind every car decision I've made for the past ten years. Changed the way I feel about car building in every way possible.

I don't even attempt to keep up with Greg.

Great story Jody.

Too bad this fellow isn't around to narrate it.

Yes, he still has his car. It's put away for the winter (Minnesota), but he still uses it as much as possible. I haven't heard of any changes in the works, it's a great car as-is.
