yes, another *new* award!

MV Documentarista

the spirit of this award is to acknowledge those who have spent considerable time and effort documenting a project and those who have made significant contributions to the MV Wiki or strive to share, consolidate and help others with important, useful, and meaningful information.

basically, these are the folks that are the docents, archivists, scholars, the curators of the stacks here at MV.

it is my esteemed privilege to award the following individuals:

berto- for contributions toward the MV wiki and always being Johnny on the spot with links to relevant articles, parts diagrams and useful information when replying to a post.

micbergsma- for the video series that documents service and repair work, invaluable! just really really great work that engages the community and well done production wise.

socalguy- a filthy animal from the NSM side (that has a modern too) for a detailed and documented build of his basket case GL done at home by him, including paint, as well as a few other items of interest.

thank you all for your contributions, thank you for making MV what it is.

best,

-greasy

This is unexpected, but much appreciated... thank you!

My only concern is that now you've given me more work towards updating the wiki

Outstanding choice of award--documentation is only getting more and more important, especially over here on the NSM side--and, while I can only comment on SoCal, a definite solid choice for the innaugural honoree's.

yes I think the new awards are a great idea - I hope we keep up with them, it's fun. maybe you need an "awards day" on some regular basis so you can hype it a bit. it was your academy language that made me think of it.

cool stuff!
