Default Blast from the past

Today, I was digging around in my computer, and found some folders that have been collecting dust for almost 10 years.

In these folders were videos downloaded from the internet from 2005 mostly, and capture many of the cars and personalities that made this forum the place to be. Others were picked up else where, and may or may not be of interest. Most all of them were likely picked up from putfile.

Enjoy the playlist. It started as 205 videos, but apparently some of them are too hot for Youtube, something about Copyrights or something.

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...R_nfZ9BPE3e6d8

Feel free to also upload and share any old forum videos that you have collecting here as well.

Ugh, flash from the past. I seen some nice cars, unfortunately, Zilla was one of them.

Ok, I just seen a really old video. In the credits, I seen the name "Teoubk". He is the ORIGINAL site creator of this forum. Well, back then it was bonnevilleclub.com

In all fairness, Greenzilla was good at 2 things: Supercharger whine, especially when it had the 2" pulley, and snapping transmission mounts. It was also testament on how far you can (or can't) take the series 1 without a cam.

Seeing 8ball again was fun too. Shame the platform isn't mainstream any more.

Yea, it does suck Bonneville'* are gone.

Who knows, maybe they will come out with another anniversary edition? Dodge did it with the Chargers.

There wouldn't be much of a point. The drivetrain made the car, otherwise it is boring and ordinary, and the drivetrain isn't likely to be resurrected, it'* too dated.
