OMG!  That's terrible!  But their Facebook page is still working.
I don't always downshift, but when I do it is near a Prius so they can hear me hurting the environment.

You are comparing apples and oranges.

The SAAC forum is part of a long established organization, a club with conventions, social events and discussions as well an excellent technical base.

Concours Mustang Forums, as the name implies is a forum for the Sharing, Showing, Judging & Restoring of Concours Mustangs.

You may not enjoy the 'Tomfoolery' on the SAAC forum but it's part of the character of the club and has been for many years.

We talked about adding "Shelby" to the name of this forum but figured the that would make the name too long and since they both shared allot of the same details and heritage it was a bit redundant. In any case both IMHO share allot of the same info, details and members.

Hope they get that site up soon and without a big loss of information or posts. Seen this happen to a few other sites and it hasn't always been pretty

Yup I'm aware, been a member since 1980. Didn't say that I did not enjoy it, just said it was peaceful without it.  :)

The information in the database is invaluable (technical and non-technical), I hope it will be recovered.

When the hi-po forum was rebuilt, none of the data from the old forum was merged over.  That was probably a big reason a lot of folks weren't too excited to rejoin and participate.  Most of us that give our time to help others hope that the information can be used in the future.  I personally use the search feature here and on other forums like the SAAC one on a regular basis.

OMG!  Any chance they will lose all the SAAC Registry data?

The Registries are not part of the forum.
