    Thanks everyone (1700+ people) that had joined the site since 2001, but it fizzled out and nobody was using the site. I bet most of you reading this don't even know if existed! Your lack of interest made me lose interest as well and battling the software quirks, which went out of business a number of years ago, was a challenge. Either upgrade to some new software, or move on.

    I chose to move on.

    There is a WEALTH of information contained in all the posts, so I have made an offline copy you can download for free and scan through when you need it. Please get yourself a copy. It will remain online until the domain registration runs out in April 2020.

    Early A-Body Forum

    Thanks so much. I will continue to support this forum and Early A-body section. There is also some early A-body pages on Facebook but I don't find them very useful due to the format of Facebook.

            Eighteen years - very impressive!
            That is a great site with really great info.
            I know I used the Formula S info a lot.
            Thanks for all of the effort over all those years.

              DANG ! This and the slant 6 forums are (were) the two l actually go on.
              I realize there are more guys that have '70 Dusters than ' 62 Lancers so l can understand why.
              Hate to see it go. Maybe someone else will pick it up and continue.

              Neil...once again, thanks for your efforts over the last almost 20 years that the forum existed. It did have a fair amount of traffic back in the day, but it seems here and FaceBook have kind of taken over the bandwidth.
              Take care, and please hang around here so we can still "pick-your-brain" !:canada::thumbsup:

                It wasn't an easy decision, I'm sorry. I used software I had a license for, and knew, but it wasn't very good. (Discusware) I did buy a UBB (Ultimate Bulletin Board) license once but never really got a round tuit.

                        Did anyone successfully download all the info? I gave it a shot, and it looks like the download occurred, but I can't get the document to open. Any clues?

                        Wow, Another facebook casualty. So sad.
                        Lets not listen to the people who want to burn down all the library's. Who needs books when knowledgeable people are at the tip of your finger, just use that smart phone.
