Default Do you guys check out other car forums?

I check out the Corvette forums a lot. Its my favorite car after all.

The grand Prix forum is cool because they talk about performance parts a lot.3800'* too so why else would I look.

Just checked out Ferrari forums. Some actually seem like nice guys. Not the snobs they are made out to be I liked this write up. Especially #8

1.My cars will always be clean and well presentable. I will ensure that my cars are in the highest state of mechanical condition and maintenance. Exotics are indeed rare, and to see one is a special experience. I have an obligation to present these cars to others at a high standard.

2.I will always be polite, courteous, and friendly. I will not talk down to or ignore anyone, and I will cheerfully answer all questions. Exotic owners wrongly suffer from a "snob" label. By actively and always countering this, I will strive to change this perception among all whom I meet.

3.Where feasible, I will encourage inspection and observation of my cars. If someone is clean and courteous, I will encourage them to sit in my cars. I will actively encourage photographs. In particular, I will encourage this among younger children. On occasion, I will offer rides to admirers under the appropriate circumstances.

4.With one exception (see 5, below), I will obey all traffic laws or local traffic customs. Especially, I will pass other cars only in marked, safe passing zones, and I will always respect traffic speeds and noise ordinances within city limits. I will always drive in a defensive manner to protect myself and my vehicle. I will not initiate nor will I respond to challenges to race my cars on open public roads.

5.Operating my cars as God, Enzo, and Ferruccio intended will occur only on open, rural routes free of heavy traffic or on appropriately designated race courses. On public highways, I will use my highest powers of observation and diligence to ensure that I place myself, my vehicles, and the public in no additional danger. I will be aware of the environment and road conditions, and I will not drive at excessive speeds on unknown or suspect roads. When approaching blind corners or hills, I will assume that an obstacle exists and will take appropriate defensive measures.

6.I will share my passion and excitement for exotic cars with others through community service and charitable events. I will actively seek out community organizations such as local police departments and schools and offer my cars for use in events such as DARE programs, homecoming parades, pep rallies, etc. Many communities have "Make a Wish" foundations for sick children. If given the opportunity, I will offer a day with myself and my cars to such organizations in an effort to brighten an otherwise trying life for someone less fortunate than I.

7.I will be honest and open with other enthusiasts, and I will accurately represent my cars to prospective owners and buyers. I will keep complete records, and I will always follow up with purchasers of my cars to ensure that they continue to gain maximum satisfaction and appreciation for cars that I have owned and serviced.

8.I will always have a smile on my face when inspecting, driving, or showing my cars to others. I will never forget how fortunate I've been to own such automobiles and I will constantly remind myself that the future is uncertain, and that today may be as good as it gets.

Agreed on ClubGP main site. I am on WNYCGP and they are a bunch of good guys. have to agree on the Regal Forum as well since I spent my interlude between Bonnevilles there. I also check out the local car forums, which unfortunately are a bunch of import "tuners" but still decent none the less.

Club GP is good for info, and new stuff. They drive the 3800 community forward. Been better slightly compared to a few months ago.. I really just read there.

LS1GTO.com For my LS1 fix.

Hardforum.com car section for unbiased, every style of car imaginable discussion.

Few others too..

I read CGP a lot, and post occationally if I have some GP specific questions. I stray away from posting in the AAG section. It'* a different world in that section.

I don't go to any other car forums. Never found the same quality of people on the others that we have here.

I do like HowardForums.com for reading up on cell phone tips/tricks/hacks, tho

I visit regalgs.org lesabret.com and the Aurora site for cars. Then I'm on a few other forums non-car related.
