Most other forums are just so clogged - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Lounge For casual talk about things unrelated to General Motors. In other words, off-topic stuff. And anything else that does not fit Section Description.

Alot of people bust their to keep this place running smooth. No single person deserves more credit than any other though. We each cover different things.

The best thing though, is that our veteran members as a group recognize the mood of the Forum and understand how things flow. Those are the guys that make it tick.

The Gearheads are probably our most valuable asset. People join here primarily for help with a problem, and the gearheads are instantly recognized when they reply as a source a person can trust.

There'* alot to it, Every time a new Moderator is chosen, they're blown away by how much is going on behind the scenes every day to keep this place ticking along.

You ford Guys belong here... seems like many members that have a Bonneville have a Ford Car or Truck... Some have a Bonneville and 2 Ford Products



This is nice to see from the Forum members..

Well, whatever it is going on behind the scenes, it helps keep everyone replying to posts, it seems. I got one reply on the phpBB forums, but my problem is not solved because the guy just gave me a link. What a useless, useless way to make a forum grow by having a bunch of people sitting around and posting links as the sole replies, if any, to large amounts of important questions. This is much, much better.

I agree. Our forum is so great, it KILLS others in terms of response time and keeping it clean and spam free.

I used to be joined to a S10 forum, and I would post a question about my '88 S10 Blazer, then about 2 days later, I would get a response, and not a helpful one. Most of the time it was people saying totally off-topic stuff. I would be lucky to get a proper response within a week, if I even did. At least here when someone posts, you have a answer within a HOUR or less. Amazing, just amazing.

And I have to agree with everyone'* remarks regarding our Admins, Mods, and Gearheads. They are in fact some of the best forum staff I have ever seen in my 1 year and 6 months I have been here. Thanks guys for being such a great staff, and continue keeping this place excellent!

I now can't leave the forum. Especially since I'm about to break 1000 posts. But I digress... It'* good to see that unanimously we like this place. I have no complaints, except that I want to know what willwren has put on his supercharger...

Back on topic, I may end up using this forum for its awesomeness for a long, long time. About that Ford thing, though, we have a Ford Aerostar and a Mercury Sable. However, one is a company car, and the other we drive while I do crazy things to my 94. Pics coming. With pretty much all of my cars, I've asked for help from this forum, and the turnaround time has been phenomenal.

And in the lounge, I've found all sorts of awesome stuff to chat about. Here are a couple things we may have not brought up:

This is by far the best US Car Forum i have ever seen. Tons of great informations, great cars and very helpfull people !!
I live in germany and Bonneville Cars ans Owners are really rare here.
For me the Bonneville is the ultimate car cause it has the looks, the power and the attitude !!
I cant stop comin here and every day i find out something else !!

It will be 7 more weeks before my Bonneville 1998 arrives in Germany. I just bought it in the states and i cant wait to post pictures here !!
