Is it back??

Site was down for a few weeks, and now looks like it was back, but missing the last 8 months of posts!

Yea, bummer on that one.



I've been asking about updates to the VB software, but have not had a firm response yet. I know most of us old folks like the forum format better than facebook, as it's easier to chronologically document something - but not sure about the younger crowd. I think the thing that may be holding us back is the fact that everyone accesses everything through their phone now. Personally, I still access everything through a computer.



Of course, there is the fact that dang near everyone has facebook, so getting to a bunch of different groups from a single platform is quite easy. In this sites current state, the pics have to be hosted somewhere else - which I think is a drawback for most folks as it's not convenient - which facebook has that covered too.



I don't really know what the answer is, but it would be nice to get this place back up and running.

I must be getting old too.
I still access everything through my computer as well.
I hate using my phone for anything at all, unless I am away from a computer. lol.

If we're back, here's what you missed.
15x7 American Racing Vector Wheels and Cooper Cobra tires (235-60 and 275-60) I put on my 68 Charger.

Thanks. I put some work in it for sure. But that Gen3 Hemi swap and 5 speed auto have sure been worth it. It cranks, runs, drives like a new/modern car but has that classic look. Plus makes a bunch more power than that old 2 barrel 318 ever could. And did I mention gets over 20mpg on E85 too? Crazy stuff!

I looked a long time for this particular car, all over the country for 3 years. Crazy I found it literally 5 minutes from my house still in possession by the original owners. I have kept in touch with them and send them pictures and updates all the time. And they follow my Youtube channel so they can see videos of the car and the progress I make on it.
It's an awesome memory of times gone by and I just wish my dad was here to enjoy it with me. It will be my memory of him and the reason I was searching for it prior to his passing.
I found this car Dec 2020 but he passed April 2020 so he never knew about it. It's in his memory I have kept/built the car and never plan to sell it pending financial hardships.
