Remember the Sway controversy?
When that broke it was the highest traffic day ever for years, it has been topped since: Most users ever online was 6,978, 04-01-2013 at 09:29 PM.

I have a few of you beat, it's been interesting. At one time we could look at a list of members, I don't know if that is possible anymore. A great site for hanging out and learning.

So here's a thought, now that we're all reflecting a little ...

Does anyone recall the dithering, the "doom and gloom", and complaining when the site underwent a change of ownership / management? (I do understand the "resistance to change" factor that was certainly a part of this.)

I can't speak for anyone else, but I *still* feel that this site remains to be the best forum of its type on the internet! Would the rest of you "long-timers" agree?

Kudos to Jon AND Helena!
Thank you for all that you have done --- and continue to do!

I haven't been a member that long, and this isn't pointed at anyone, but if you think about it, if you joined 10 years ago, maybe if you would have stayed with the project and off the computer you might have a done car or be a lot closer. Even if you put one nut and bolt on, that would have been 360 a year, and in ten years 3600 nuts and bolts.

A lot of you guys are waaaay to young to not be working on your rides. I had to retire at 55 and not by choice. Shortly after that I started losing the feelings in my hands, then my feet, I wouldn't wish it on anyone. I still worked on cars but only on big stuff I could feel. I'm getting use to no feelings, and I still go out and try to work on my 33.

So get out there while your still young, the tape is getting shorter every day. This is a great place to hang out, it has picked me up a lot, and I thank everyone, but all the time you spend on here is one less nut and bolt going on that car.

Bob

Who said they had´nt completed a project because of too much time on here ?
Some maybe, could not have done anything without being on here.
There will always be the wanna do´s, the forum master minds and those who´ve never turned a wrench in anger, they provide our entertainment here.

Without this site I could not have cleared some difficult hurdles maintaining my car, without "meeting" PowerRods Mikey my car would still be without doors.

I agree the computer should not take up a large amount of anyone´s day.

Thank you for reminding me of my "shortening tape".......

I'm not saying this site hasn't helped guys finish their cars, I'm talking to the young guys, and you aren't one of them. LOL Sorry, but true. I meant the guys that are young you know 20 to 61.

I have been lucky I guess, I have pretty much built my own cars, with another guy. We did what we could, some we farmed out, most we did our self. Like I said before I can rebuild a engine, but I sure am not an engine guy by no means, but between the two of us we could get it done.

Guilty as charged!

There have been a lot of reasons why my build has been going on for nearly 10 years. Some of them were unavoidable, some of them involve the old "time and money" ... and some of them were just "I don't feel like it. I'd rather go on vacation."

It's funny, though, how you can look back at some of the ideas that you had 10 years ago ... read through your project journal ... and can spot those blunders that you made with what you felt was "utmost confidence" at the time.

"Blower Upgrade path"

I'm going to look real cute at 75, probably hunched over with arthritis, with the biggest smile on my dentures.

Seriously ... I am slowly getting back to work on this project this summer. Currently frustrated with "do overs" and bad decisions on a camshaft ... but I'm out there.

I know there are a lot of things that get in the way, money is one, but there are always things to do that don't cost a lot, kids are another, I never had any so that was a big factor in working on cars. You have to spend time with the kids, they have to do their thing and they want you to be part of it. I think that is a must that many don't follow. someday they might want to take up what you are doing in the shop.

I do think the guys on here are the old age ones more than the young ones, I know I never looked at a computer until a few years ago I could slow down a little now a lot.
