CarJunkie = CarJunky Sign In

It has been a long discussion on why we went with Carjunky over CarJunkie and at the time we liked the way CarJunky looked and franky its shorter.

But now typing either domain name takes you to the same site.

www.Carjunky.com or www.Carjunkie.com


We hope this will avoid confusion from the many sites out their trying to copy our sites success over the past years.

Some of the things are not actually correct. I can't wait to get back on the farm. If you make it down, you would want to spend a while also. Might be right for the Arkeysaw boys tho.

Jim its actually funny if you look into the y vs ie thing. Spelling carjunky is the correct way.

Y was the correct form orginally, but people got lazy after changing the y to i and adding es, so instead people started to cut out the s and leave ie. Soon hobby may be spelled hobbie as well. And its why so many names out there are spelled with either a y or ie.

Do you think maybe the "ie" is for our overseas friends? They have a funny way of spelling things, you know. Maybe the Doc did it.Angelic
