Yes, huge changes are coming. You'll be required to go through 5 pages of ads before you get to post. And you have to sign over your first born in order to remain a member.... Everyone will be required to send the staff beer in order to log on.














...okay, not really. I was just kidding of course. I'm sure there will be some changes... think of it this way. You move into a new appartment or house...what do you do? Usually you give it a fresh coat of paint and maybe some new boarder. You change the locks for security reasons. Likewise, I'm sure there will be small changes to the site for the same reason. Spiff it up.. secure it up...

But even if you move, you're stuck with the same parents...likewise you are all stuck with us, Moderating and Administrating just like always.

EDIT: Besides...it'* not the color scheme or font size that makes this club what it is... it'* you, the members & staff... and i don't see you changing because there'* a new name on the website registry.

I'm surprised everyone'* so worried about change. I don't care at all. In fact, I couldn't care less what happens with this site, as long as the people are still here, because that'* what makes this site so awesome. Even if there was 5 pages of ads and a new layout, I'd still come. It'* not about the house, it'* about the location

I didn't know you, Jeff.. I was a member of this site under a different username, previously, and I must say, coming back here even after purchasing a new auto, I remember why I loved this site. It'* among one of the best run-automotive forums on the internet, as far as I'm concerned. Thank you for founding a great club like this, and even after getting rid of that car (think it'* the red one at the top right?) keeping it going as a great resource to 3800 and bonneville enthusiasts alike, but I guess everyone has to move on at some point.


welcome , new owner.

Hi everyone, thanks for the warm welcomes! I'm sure the big question is what'* going to change, and I've already seen that coming up. Well, not much will change. I have been talking to the admins and moderators about a few things, but the only big think that'* certain and that you'll notice is that I have to move the site off Jeff'* server and onto a new server. That will cause some downtime, but I'll do my best to make it minimal.

Welcome, Peter!
Think we could talk you into posting up in the Intro section and tell us a little more about yourself?
I know Jeff has vetted you, and I know you've talked to all the staff, but us members are still very curious...
