When I say "friends", I mean people you really consider to be friends, not just acquaintances. CEGers you see or talk to regularly, invite to your house for dinner, hang out with, go on vacations together, invite to your parties, etc.

I've made some VERY close aquaintences, and a couple of really good friends.

Chris (JaxChrisFla) with his pre-98 SVT.
Jon in Florida (SVT_Leo) is an awesome guy!

Then there is always John (Kokopellian) who is my brother from another mother.

The Hightowers, who are as cool as it gets...

And, recently, Warmonger (Tom) who's as down to earth and accomodating as anybody on this planet would ever desire.

I put down 1-2, as I met Jim(BeyondloadedSE) and Scott(LoadedSVT) through CEG. I've been friends with Ryan(Rtstabler51) and Ryan(CLASSVT) through pretty much meeting up on the street, all having had SVT's. Both Ryan's now live out of state, so only see them on occassion.

I put down 11 or more as I've made a number of friends through this site and most of the don't even post on here anymore. I wouldn't hesitate to call most of them up at any time and definitely look forward to getting together whenever I can travel to their location or their passing through here. Unfortunately other than Brad Noon, pretty much all of them live out of state.

The New England members tend to invite the entire group to personal parties/housewarmings/weddings/birthdays. We've helped each other move into new apartments/houses and towed each other when our cars aren't working properly, etc.
I'd say out of that whole group, I consider about 3-4 as real close friends, and the rest are just people that show up for the free food and leave

I think the distance is the biggest factor in all of that.
I'd like to think that if more of the members lived within a half hour/hour drive, I'd try to hang with them more regularly than just at meets.

Money is the second biggest factor. We work too damn much and too damn hard. It's hard to find the spare time to do things around the house, let alone arrange to hang out with each other more often.

I have CEGer friends that I will happily visit & do things with, but by the definition of friends given by GTO Pete, I have no CEGer friends. They all live 1000 miles away!!

Only other person I ever knew to be from South Jersey on here was Cartman. Never met him though.

That's why this is so tough to answer. I'd say I've become friends with guys like Mikey Boy and Stazi, but both live 200 miles away, so it's tough to just drop by, or invite them over for dinner. They're definitely people that I would allow into my home, and wouldn't hesitate to call if I were in their neck of the woods. I know that they are good people, just unfortunately too far away to see on a regular basis. This is a large part of why I stress people coming to Spring Zing, as it's a great place to meet people you've talked to on here, and get together with people we haven't seen in a while.

Where do I start? I'd say being the best man at a CEGer's wedding and a groomsman at another CEGers wedding is a pretty good friend. LOL! I'd say quite a few. A few people I'd give the key to my house/garage to. Still waiting for someone to name a first born after me. Lots of ppl I'd like to hang out with more if they weren't so far away. The New Englanders rock!
