    What happened to this place ?

    I remember when Vinny first passed There were so many people online countless and countless items for sale. Everybody was always meeting up at wings and rings going to Quaker steak and lube. There was nothing but fox body stuff front to back on this page do you think the S550 killed the want for info and parts?

    Other forms of Social Media (Facebook mainly) made a lot of Forums obsolete.

    When Vinny (Heart of this place) passed, there was a huge hole that no one could fill and SBZ kinda died when he did.

    Man I understand that fully Iím sure it has been tried a million times but I wonder if there is a way to resurrect it. Some of the guys on here have wicked fast mustangs and it would be a great platform to talk about this place.

    All it takes is someone to step up and do things to spark get togethers and other events. Just seems like everyone is busy doing stuff. Ive moved away and only post up in my build thread out of respect to Vinny. Matter of fact, I was wearing my Dirty Dozen sweatshirt, from 2005, last night, working on my Mustang.

    Like Craig said, Facebook and other social media outlets have killed the majority of the forums. We have tried a few different things in the past to try to get and keep people logging in. The Dirty Dozen Challenge being one. Seemed like only the same few people would show up to race and hang out.

    I still get on here every day in hopes that others will sometime journey back onto the site. Several have so far. We can only just keep trying new things to keep it alive.

    It was around 02 and I found myself staring at an unbelievable amount of Mustangs just down the street from me at Knights of Columbus on Blue Rock. Everyone I ran into had a story and were welcoming. I didn’t have Mustang at the time but I definitely wanted to be a part of it. Yes life happens but we can definitely try to put something together. Like Brian said we want to get atleast some get togethers formed this year.

    I still check in everyday and it kills me that the board is dead. Facebook has definitely taken it's toll. Several of us Dayton guys are planning on getting together and doing some cruising this year.
