If you have always dreamed of owning your own message board, now is your chance. After 20 years, I think itís time to pass the mouse over to someone else. This place has been a lot of fun over the years and Iíve met some amazing friends through this board. There is a lot of good information here, and I want that to be preserved. These days I havenít had the time or interest to play with cars. So, I think itís time to pass it along.

Contact me if interested.

I sure hate see this happen. But thanks for all the fun through the years! You've done a great job with this site.

I hope it can be saved and kept online (it'll take me forever to print out all the posts). How soon are you looking to sell? Weeks, months?

I don't really know. If nobody is interested, there's a lot of good info here and I don't want to shut it down. So, I guess I'll just keep it running, but I thought maybe someone would be dying to take over. lol

I'd also like to keep it online but don't have the desire to be the owner/admin. Maybe I can PP you some money for upkeep. Maybe some other people would also. I know the DB must be huge, is there a way to download it directly and run it locally?

I'm also happy to contribute some coin to keep it going. I take far more info than I have to give so it's 100% worth it for me.

Yes. Thank you for all the help. I still have to look into those other files and replacing them (unless you're up for trying that?).

Eugenio got us fixed up for the last outage. We had some old files pop up on a server scan that needed cleaned up and Eugenio took care of it so they'd put us back online.

Thanks Eugenio!

Thank you! Mark me as one more for contributing to the upkeep, there's a lot left for me to learn...

Thanks. I appreciate it guys. I've just been so busy that I'm not here as much as I used to be. I still have my Camaro (though I rarely get to drive it). EugenioSS has been helping with admin duties. I just hoped it could transfer to someone knowledgeable who's younger and still "living" cars (more than I am these days).

I don't want to see it go away. It needs upgraded to new software. This version is extremely old and has many potential security issues. The cost is about $1500 (last time I checked, it may be more now) to upgrade to something more current. That's the main thing this board needs. I'm not familiar enough anymore to know if I could move to the competitive software and if there's a cheaper path for upgrades. I think LS1tech was on the competing software a while ago, assuming they haven't changed. I looked into moving towards that at one time, but it's been a long time.

Just saw this post, have you thought about contacting Sam Strano? He would be one I would think of might be good to pass the torch to.

I wondered about Sam and I wondered about UMI. Both are super active in the motorsports and F-body arena. So far, I've just been hanging out to see if anybody pops up that might have the right attitude/interest/approach.
