Wow! This is my Tribute to 100 Pages of American Torque. This was a Labor of Love that I was fortunate to undertake. I had so much support from all the great members of this fabulous website.

In case you missed any, here are All of my 100 Pages as shown here. If you go to the individual site address it will take you to that Page. Just copy and paste the individual address to view the Page. Then go back for another Page and address.

A HUGE Thank you to Brandon for designing, creating and maintaining this great site filled with Pages of Cars, Cars and more Cars as well as many Games contributed by its members.

I also helped design and contributed “The Hidden Gas Cap Game” with Brandon. We have over 1,000 hits. Try it.

Since my first Page 10 years ago in 2012 when I posted pictures of my 1967 Chevy Impala, I have been blessed with many friendships all over this Country and Canada.

I must mention my American Torque friends: George, Rob, Dave, Jeff, Larry, Nick, Duncan, Ray, Fred, Pat, Jhar, Suptclark, Warrior, GregPeed, Mustang Girl, Joseph, Brother John and the Honcho himself Brandon.

I’m looking forward to another 10 years and another 100 pages of American Torque!

Thank you for a Total of 65,000 “Thumbs Up” as of 9-1-22 over 100 Pages. Cheers! Mario.

Well, well, well, lookie lookie, Archway Cookie. (Old TV commercial used that)

At least we didn't have to wait 100 years for this to be posted.

I've scanned it for errors and omissions but I will do a FOOL review over the holiday.

Now the ONLY thing thing I see missing, is a page where it is:


Oh that's not a suggestion Mario...

I see George from Canada got first place in the friends and family mention. Congrats George.

Guess members in AZ don't deserve first place. I guess maybe George being so close to NY has something to do with this.

Oh I'm not crying or complaining or griping. Just pointing out what I see.

As I said this whole page will need scrutinized and reviewed to see if it's worthy to hold the distinguished title of the 100th page.

Until then, court dismissed and the jury is in deliberation. Anyone want to volunteer to actually count the 65,000 THUMBS UP???

Men have a habit of exaggerating things. :-)

to be continued................

I expected better from you Rob, but that's OK. Anyone else come close to 100 Pages? I think not.

I won't tell you what Brandon said to me in a private email but it wasn't derogatory.

Anyway, I did 100 Posts because this is what I love to do. This is a great website for oldtimers like you and me to relive the past and Honor the cars that were and are to this day fine machines.

I will continue and accept fair criticism as I will do the same. Cheers, Mario

Congratulations, Mario, and thank you for a job well done. I predict that 100 posts is a milestone that will never be broken by anyone but you. Naturally, I especially love the Corvette posts best. Now, time's a wastin'...get started on the road to 200.

Thanks Dave that means a lot to me coming from you. Your posts are very entertaining and informative.

Your love of your cars shows as well as many others and is a tribute to your character and integrity.

Semper Fi Dave, and see you around American Torque. Mario

Oh now come on Mario, you know I had to bust your chops. I wouldn't be me, if I didn't be me. Like Frank Sinatra sang, or was it Tony Bennett?? One of them old crooners. I GOT TO BE ME!!!

You 100th page is excellent. Having tried my hand at just a few, I have an good idea of what doing 100 would be like.

You have my utmost respect for your accomplishment, and I hope this site lasts for years and years.

People who are really good at something like this, people take notice. This is one of your fortes. I'm that guy that's not great at anything, but good at a few things.

We are all different, just like our cars. I'm glad we have our cars to be our voices and a symbol of our character and personality. One's car speaks a lot about that owner.

Keep up the work like Dave said. Who knows, maybe in your "OLDER" years, you will be posting Page 200 from the retirement home in NY.

You can be proud of your work, and accomplishment. I know you are a grateful man for all the support you receive from the members. Even members, like me.

BRAVO ZULU Mario...........Bravo Zulu.

See I was right I expected better from you Rob and you delivered!

Like in the Star Trek IV movie where Spock interacts with the computer and it asks "How do you feel?" At first he couldn't answer until he learned what friendship means. Then he finally answered "I feel fine!"

So we carry on torch in hand onward and upward. Until we meet again in American Torque! Cheers!

So all's well that ends well.

Well, if we are allowed to quote Spock, then I will use his: "Live long and prosper, and get busy on Page 101". "The needs of the many, outweigh the needs of the few, OR THE ONE"

American, the FINAL FRONTIER!!

Hey glad to see you're a Trekkie! I have all the movies and all the original TV episodes on DVD! Seen them many times and never get tired of them.

Spock, Bones, Scotty and Uhura have passed but Capt Kirk is still kicking at age 91 God bless him! Live Long and Prosper!

Yes I'm already working on more Pages, stay tuned! Cheers!

Yepper, I used to get home from work at 3:30 and I grab the boys and we'd sit on the sofa and watch Star Trek at 4. Of course during commercials there was rough housing to be had, with the usual carpet burns, and cries for Mom to come rescue them.

As soon as the show came back on..dead quiet.

Mario, it is no wonder you are our gear head guru. All hail Mario, our American Torque resident autophile. The rest of us mere gear head mortals can not hold a candle to you sir. We have a very long way to even think of catching up to you. Congratulations and cheers.

Mario on Sep 4, 2022 said:

Thank you so much George you're very kind. I enjoy doing these Pages and it keeps me off the street!

I'll keep on making these Posts for as long as you and many other great gear Heads want me to. I enjoy seeing your Pages also so just be inventive and go ahead. We're all here for morale support and are enthusiastic about cars. Cheers!

Rob, it must have been that undisclosed amount of cash that I paid Mario for first mention. Money can buy anything but true love. Cheers.
