====================
I'm getting a few emails wondering and a bit busy so I'll put the copy paste reply above.

Comments

The site has always been of great value to Old Holden enthusiasts but of late seems to be turning into a facebook type site. Lots of posts, comments, memes, whatever they are, about all and sundry but not related to old holdens or often autos at all.
I would prefer not to read this stuff, and I don't.
Maybe an idea would be to have separate areas for traditional old holden stuff and the facebook type, non old holden related stuff. Just a thought.
Cheers to all.

I’m happy to put my name on this not a problem and I’m a regular and I don’t come and go once a month
I’ve only been here for 12 years and I’m a fifo worker
Our “regular” members are more then happy to share their knowledge on restoring our beloved “old Holden’s”
And at present my “Southern boys and girls” are In a critical crisis situation with there homes and families and there beloved old Holden’s that may be still un drivable an May not get them to safety BUT worst of all there houses
As you pointed out you just scroll past
Ok you do that or have a chat to our ministrator and open your own page and site up
But most of my fellow members have a heart and have meet up with there family’s
I live in Cairns’s and yes we do have some fires BUT not to that extreme
I have learnt over time that some of my fellow members are school bus drivers, school teachers, business people
But most of all [Naughty Pottyword] stirrers and we love it
My thought and Prayers is with them in their time of need
Please don’t take this the wrong way in any way shape or form
I’m hoping to catch up with fellow members in the future
As we all do

A lot of people here like myself are not on Facebook and don’t care what you had for brunch at the local hipster cafe with a photo
As I said I’m not shy to put my name to this
Regards Dazza
P.s
Funny how on your track your last post was over a month ago and the one before that was 7 years ago 🤔

I am with Triple D on this, I’ve been a member for 15yrs and check out the site at least 3-4 times a day to keep up with hints, ideas and expertise of other like minded members. I don’t look at face-book, Instagram or Twitter etc in fact I wouldn’t know how but golly I know how to restore an oldy or engine without going into who had what for dinner and for how much it cost ? Probably in the next decade as technology advances, readers ideas for information and advice may vary beyond “restoring old autos” but at our age (speak for yourself) I feel the site could (should) still stick with its earlier days of intentions of catering for young and old INTERESTED in restoration and presentation of old automotive vehicles. I think rusty has done a great job and should be congratulated but if it is costing him too much personally he has to consider his own future. Just my rant. AL PAL.

FJ Sedan, FJ Ute, all Steel.

get plenty complicated, costly and way too risky. I am not some business that makes money. Maybe, if your reading this you would like to help.
I have been shutting the site down for a long time and have tried to keep it up so it had some chance of continuing but it is hard to get help. Such is the way of things.

Thanks for the response rusty.
I have no idea how web pages are managed so I would be no help even if you wanted to make changes.
In no way do I want to complicate things for you. I just made a suggestion. Clearly there are other views.
Best wishes,
David.

I get what you're saying David (Syndicate87). oldholden has changed a bit over the years. A lot have moved on, a few of us oldies are still here plugging away. I kinda think the old days of coming here for info has maybe not gone, but well, become not so relevant here. Google and other places have taken over. We're still here to listen and help out where we can. But as it's gone quieter, we talk about other stuff, we've all got to know each other, (even if it is without actually meeting in person) so discussion may stray a bit.
Yeah bookface and others are out there, but they're cold places. Stick around here, pull up a chair, bring some pistachios, join in the conversations..
