I seen it coming. I'm not going to beat a dead horse here. But an effort was made. And ignored.
Sad. Very very sad
Facebook is always a nice option. But forums are still one of my favorites.
It's life. Seems to change and people don't like change. But eventually adapt to it.
Hopefully this site will hang in threw the tough times.
United we stand. Divided we fall.
Holy shit Dave, that was intense there at the end.
I think some noise in a Facebook feed would have a hard time getting/keeping traction as a real community, which is what this place was always supposed to be about, but I'm biased. That said, the amount of fucking drama this site brought into my life was something I never expected in a million years, so I noped the fuck out. It really was a bummer to see the site pretty much die on the vine. THAT said, totally worth it, meet some really bad ass people through this site and community that I still talk to on occasion. Y'all know who are, but if you're ever in Denver, look me up.
I moved there from Denver in Feb of 2001, got a nice (for me at 22) pay bump and immediately sold my MN12 Cougar and grabbed a 2001 V6 Mustang (the silver one), because it was a Mustang and I'd wanted one badly for quite a long time and didn't care about the engine because I wanted something new for once in my life, and again, a Mustang.
I was an active lurker on Corral/StangNet/etc, and none of them had a singular active community in the area. Started the Yahoo Group, spammed the regional boards on every national site I was a part of. Rob (Yellow) was the first to be active on the Yahoo board and helped kick-start things by spreading the word at Hooters meetups and show circuits he was in. Through that, all the local physical/oldschool car clubs started to use the site as a point of congregation as well.
And the rest, as they say, is something something.
