  • Been a long time.....

    Haven't been here for several years. Great to see the site still exists, but wow, no traffic.

    What would it take to breathe the life back in to it?

    I have updated the site and keeping it alive, it was nearly lost in cyberspace as it seemed to have got neglected for a while there...there are still many new members joining, we just need more "active" members to help start threads, wish I was better at it as well...I want to keep it alive as its been a great place for many of us in te past and still can be a great place.
    thanks

      I think many of the users thought the board was DOA after it crashed a while ago.
      The key may be getting back in contact with all those users that used to frequent here and let them know it's still kicking.

          Oh, I'm still out here in Kensington, and I still have the TA; about 44K miles on it and no major problems to report.

          All's well here. And I have a first grandchild. A healthy, HUNGRY girl, born on 9/11/13. Mom, Dad and baby are all fine, although the first two could use a bit more sleep.

            Happy Thanksgiving all

            I swing in once every few months or so, but the traffic has been extremely quiet since the site went haywire a few years back. I sold my Formula about 5 years ago and updated to an 05 GTO. We still have my wife's 2002 firebird. Been a crazy summer/fall getting a new property up and running and hardly put any miles at all < 500 on the GTO this year.

            Have a happy Holiday all!

              I'll make it a habit to stop by more often.

              I still have my Formula, but it's been sitting in the garage collecting dust for the past couple years. I need to get it out, clean it up, and decide what to do with it.

                Same here. I check in once in a while but have not done much with the TA recently. It sits in the garage collecting dusts, as others mentioned, hooked up to a battery tender.

                  She's pushing close to 470hp....incredibly fast, much faster than my T/A.

                    Funny did the same thing. Got a Black 2006 SRT8 about a year and a half ago. See you have the Black wheels.

                          Next step is to get Johan to supply me with a custom tune. She's running 12.8 now, but with only a stock Predator tune. Johan thinks she's got more...

                            I can't believe I still remember my password. LoL. Sold the TA a long time ago.

                            Had this NSX for about 5 years.




                            Had a couple of kids so I needed a backseat. Went to the dark side since I don't like the new Camaro.






                            Are Ken, Joe, or Kevin still on here? Haven't heard from them in a while.

                            Cheers.
