Old Crew

Hey guys

Are any of the old Crew still around? I thought about making a fb group for us if it hasn't already been done?

Hzman- the guy with the hz wagon in Perth with a turtle painted on the bonnet
Phil from Perth
All those sorts of guys that were here about 7ish years ago when I use to be quite active here as Perth Mick

A lot of people visit and read here, maybe wait around for a bit as I only fixed your username last night. Best to take people away from facebook, not ever recommend it. You just get convenience and lose on everything else.

why not become active again and encourage people to contribute and improve rather than possibly a break away group?

If you regularly watch the left you can see way less than 50% of people don't post after they are verified members, this is a pretty simple fix. How to get the time to manage things. Even a site wide email could be fun but that sounds like more ongoing work so I'm going to stop this talk. The front page needs to be split too so people can understand things as it moves faster.

I think you might be surprised at how many of the old crew still hang around, but rarely post.

I'm very much still here. Most of the guys you're talking about are alive and well, a lot on bookface.
Fookbace is good, but I find it can be a cold place. Oldholden kinda feels like home..

That's great news guys, so glad to see some of the old crew here still!

Sorry Rusty you're totally right.

I did come back a little bit ago but perhaps the timing was off I didn't see many of the old crew. I only got fb recently-ish. It just seems to be all about the $$ on fb but not about the community and love for the cars like we have here.

I had many good times chatting with the crew on here, invaluable resource of knowledge and great guys.

88Roaster- glad you're still around mate! Yeah you were doing the van last time I saw you which was years ago. Still got the pics from the cruise we went on! As for my ute I fixed her all up and moved over seas so sold it. I'm back in Aus now, got a vt s1 commo ( I know I know its "new" but still has the Aussie v8)

I'm looking for a hq coupe as my next car.

Has anyone seen doh man?

Been around for coming up 14 years, show interest in 4 car sites but have never even read Facebook, Twitter etc. I think like myself a lot of members slow down on conversation once their cars are finished and on the road. As an example I am an 80 year old but read the sites daily and contribute info when I can. AL

Facebook has it's place but it's no replacement for places like this. I've been a member here for just over 11 years but don't really consider myself as part of the "old crew". There was over 10000 people signed up by the time I joined. I guess who's in the "old crew" is relative to when you joined?

I still lurk here several days a week making the odd post when I feel I have something to contribute.

I've been here for 12 years and 0 months apparently... not been active for a very long time now though.
Don't know what happened...just sort of drifted away I guess.
