I have to admit that we have 2 Z28's. My 81 and my son's 83 so we've been using this site and one for the 3rd gen f bodies. I've really enjoyed reading/writing (this is better than super chevy or chevy hi po mags) and the interaction between members has been great. The 3rd gen. site has some good info, but way too much name calling, inappropriate language, etc. Thanks for keeping this site a few notches above the others.
We have recently had a problem with a member that became open hostility. Behind the scenes, the Administrators and Moderators were receiving threats and nasty E-mails from the individual. It came to a head yesterday and his Account was deleted. That does not prevent him from returning with a new ID and we'll have to deal with that as it occurs.
The fact is, we learned something from this and that may be the only good thing that occurred. We should not have let it go on as long as it did. We have received way too many notes and open posts about how good this site is to let one member screw it up and make the general membership uncomfortable. So here's how I'll deal with this in the future as a Membership Editor:
The first time someone causes a problem as determined by the Administrators/Moderators they will get an E-mail to advise them they need to correct their actions.
The second time the warning will be posted in the open.
I have been a member of this web page for a while now, & all I can say is a BIG CONGRATULATIONS on a very informative,well run & DECENT website. I have been checking out some other sites & I will tell you that some I will not return to because of the degregation of some members of the other sites. The language & bad mouthing of peoples opinions &/or vehicle choice is ridiculous.I say once again to MAD MIKE & ALL THE MODERATORS Thanks for a great site!!!!! Keep up the great work!!!!!!

Passed away at age 49 on Monday, March 13, 2000. Art, the son of Finn & Oddlaug Rasmussen, was born in Long Island, New York on October 4, 1950, and was raised in Seattle, Washington. A 1968 graduate of Ingraham High School, Art applied his talents to jobs as an auto mechanic, artist, construction superintendent, custom automotive machinist, racecar builder and crew chief, and even owned a screen print shop for a while.
