Old School GTA

Hello everyone, I was curious to know if any old school GTAers (i'm talking original GTA, from 1997) are still around. Some of those guys may remember me, I made a few cars back in the day and was wondering if anyone has any of my cars that are not on GTAzz. I lost them all :cry: Plus it would be nice to catch up with some of my old pals.

Re: Old School GTA

Howdy do. I think the only real oldschoolers left are me, schu (of course) and Alfadog. A lot of others we picked up along the way mind..

Afraid the only stuff of yours I have is on my site. illspirit hangs out over at gtaforums.com, not sure if he's got an old stash somewhere or not.

Pretty much everyone else did a runner. Some people have no stamina wink

Re: Old School GTA

Hey, thanks for the shout back Azz. Kudos for keeping the site running so long. I have been having fun reminiscing about the good o'l days while looking around. Also downloaded a fresh copy of GTA.

Hope all is well, Buzwa

Re: Old School GTA

Hey guys!

Buzwa, your nickname seems familiar to me.. though it's all too fuzzy to remember tongue

Dunno if anyone still remembers me... I've become more of a lurker after GTA3 was released tongue

Oh here's some more nostalgia..

Re: Old School GTA

Yeah, how could anyone forget me?? Only kidding.

Alfa, do you happen to have the email address for Thug AKA GTA Thug? I remember you two worked on that awesome Mustang together.

Re: Old School GTA

haha yea Thug was great ... took up a Chef apprenticeship and disappeared from the net.

I still talk to one of his buddies (dont think he talks to him anymore tho, thug turned into a workaholic apparently) so if you reeeeeeally want to get in contact with him I could do some digging wink It wouldn't be impossible. Easier than finding Captain Zod or The LingSter tongue

I remember you, hi Brian!


Bring back the old days! Go forth and make 2D cars, enjoy the simplicity, the beauty and the triumph.

Bring back "The One" /  "Car of the Week" /  "Smashed Headlight"

Re: Old School GTA

Boo  :biggrin:

Well, I can't say I stuck it out, but my profile is still active so at least I won't come across as a comblete newb... just a partial one, part-timing it since God knows when.

After a gap of at least six years it's good to see some of the old ones still shuffling about the place, complaining of aches and pains, pointing at everything and saying they remember when all this was 2D....

cool

Re: Old School GTA

Jesus H. Christ. As I live and breathe, it's... That bloke.

Nah, kidding. How's things, Thug? I can't promise you'll run into anybody you'd recognise these days, alas, it's just the few remaining latter day gents now and barely any of the old guard left. Allow me to give you a brief rundown!

Azz is still Azz, He sweeps in occasionally like the old man from Robocop, all good natured benevolence with a subtle undertone of pure evil.

Alfafalfa's not been seen for yonks. Probably out doing something Australian like morris dancing. That's what Aussies do, isn't it?

Last I heard of Patto, he was busy angrily waving his fist at a small child.

Salemite, probably on another message board somewhere, spamming pictures of cocks.

Needles is still a prat. And he can't ban me, HA HA, FUCKER.

2na showed up last week and... I can't think of anymore oldies offhand. That's sad that is.

Should page that new kid, he wanted a bit of GTA history, here it is...

Re: Old School GTA

Oh, Needles can ban you for existing. I try to reverse it where possible, although honestly, that's not the done thing at all. That's just one of the many reasons Cerbera got de-modded. So often, alls I can do is just mutter "Needles, you fuckwit." and then taunt him because he can't ban me.

The trick is to treat him like a lion in your living room. Just back out of the room. Then shut the door. Then get out of the house. Then yell through the letterbox that Kiss are a pile of shit and anybody who listens to them is a total knob.

Re: Old School GTA

Hello guys. I think I have buzwa cars, but buzwa should tell me about them. Because I have big library with oldschool items on my HDD.

I'm founder of polish http://swiatgta.tk.

Anyway, I love Gouranga. Registered after 10 years of reading...

Also I want to contact with Azz.

It looks like I started to late hmm

Re: Old School GTA

Yes, back in the day, internet in Poland was a bit too expensive (dial-up). So I came only to gouranga to read the biggest news. Anyway, Gouranga is so lightweight website. It loads so fast on my smartphone.

Also my site is young because hosting was expensive too. I always wanted to make gouranga, but in polish language wink
