Default A glimpse of GMForum History

Before we became GMForum.com we had 2 pre-existing forms. The first original forum was called BonnevilleClub.com. It was started in early 2002. After changing hands twice, the new and present owner revived the site and gave it new life, allowing a few old members with a passion for it to rebuild it. It became BonnevilleForum.com and enjoyed a success the original never attained. From there we decided to take our way of being a forum to include all of GM and haven't looked back.

Well I thought it would be nice to do such and share the early clubs look and feel by putting back up some of the original Tech Info Section as it was back then.

https://www.gmforum.com/archived-bc-club-techinfo-188/

If you hit "Home" from any of those pages offered, it will take you to more of the original forum via http://waybackmachine.org/

Enjoy!

2002-2007 www.bonnevilleclub.com
2007-2010 www.bonnevilleforum.com
2010-2011 www.gmforum.com

All are active and bring you home.

The pages even look a bit "dated" don't they. But some fond memories of where I "cut my teeth" in internet forums.

O i know that, the community has grown by leaps and bonds. and we can now have members who r experts on all kinds of GM'*, not just Bonnies. So we can help lots more people. But have lost that small town feel. :( LOL

Yep. And no matter how big we get, the Staff will make sure members can be themselves and express styles and preferences without to much ribbing (Ford Lovers gotta take what they get)(LOL) and not beat down every time simple mistakes happen. We lived through such and won't allow it again.

I remember that little red car in the corner. Never quite though it looked like a Bonne...but it was close.
