    Default I just want to say...

    That, having been a member here for the nearly 14 years, and seeing how relatively unchanged this place has been, I want to thank Eric, Carmen, Chuck, and everyone else that's helped this place get to where and what it is today.

    I was looking at another forum (gun forum) and how much they've changed, ie; sold out to corporate forum ownership and realized that we're lucky here. It's kept up by true fans with passion, rather than driven to be a profit generator.

    For that, I applaud and commend you guys. You fuckin' rock, keep it up.


    PS, there will be a new addition to my herd before long. It's a 5.0 and was born in Lorain in late '87..

    Agreed! I don't comment on here much anymore, but I do still drop in from time to time, and it's still the same.

    I guess no one remembers the Tom Renzo years??????????????? Luckily Carmen finally shut him out...

    The board is mostly what it is because of the members, not the management...

    If anything, renzo helped me with improving my typing.

    Not going to say sorry he's gone, though.

    There have been a few members who had brief stays here, some were colorful (imgayashell), and some were just sheer drama queens. Anyone that was here in the old days (ezboard) and when this place first got it's own domain will remember a couple-three names. I won't mention them so as to not cause more drama but there it it is.

    My main point was, in the sea of changes that forums by and large have made to stay active, this place is about the same as it always has been, tight knit, small, and never sold out, thank god.

    I know some folks made monetary contributions to ensure that, and when that times come again, I'll jump in too. The info, laughs, and sheer hours I have spent here can't have a $ value...


    Thank you.

    he's exactly and i mean to the letter, the very personality type i have to work around every single day since i started in telecom 93.

    i know how to deal with people like him, you look at people like that as a cup half full. deal with them and you wont have problems dealing with anyone.

    Ive been off and one here for many years, and yes I remember the Renzo stuff I saw. It is truly a blessing this site is here and the way it is run so well. Our cars are "forgotten" by the mainstream, but I always come here to look for parts, advice, and tech info. I truly appreciate all you guys and, I will give any advice to others that I can help. Been a great site,.... and a better group of guys.

    Wow so I come back from the dead and here is a post talking about Tom Renzo from back when I was frequenting the site most often lol. I must not have been around when he left, did he get banned?

    I will say I was happy to donate what I could to the server support fund back in the day, and would be happy to do so again. EDIT: I just found out there was another one in 2014 and sorry I missed it... It is so refreshing to come here and interact with a board that is not dominated by ads at every post. (I've been lurking around a lot of mustang forums lately)

    Plus most everyone here is dedicated to the platform and cares about helping other members rather than just throwing their 2c in where it doesn't belong like a lot of other sites....

    So, put me down for +1 on that, Sport

    I've been a member for awhile mainly because of the quality of the site. The members and their advise are greatly appreciated by this "rookie". All the questions I've asked are always answered and the information provided is excellent. Unlike some other sites with a million ads you ask a question and get mostly comments with very little usable information. I made a 3in binder copying the information on this site which has helped me re-build my Turbo Coupe. Couldn't of done it without you. Again, my "Thanks" for the great site and all of your help.
