The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online. Update: I've had a medical issue come up, and this window might not get used. If it doesn't, I'll push the maintenance back to Saturday, 2 December.
My first car was a 1969 Plymouth Satellite. I bought it on Aug.11th 1989, ten days later on August 21st. Someone hit me and took off. It was nothing special as far as performance goes...318/auto, but it was a two-door, had the console, factory gauges and was straight. The car still had all the original paperwork and ironically the car was purchased on August 22nd, 1969. One day shy of it's twentieth anniversary purchase date.
And even thought this is only about our first cars, I thought I would briefly mention this........ A few months later I bought a 1969 Olds F-85. And on August 21st, 1990, I threw a rod racing another car (71 Cougar). For the next few years I refused driving my cars on that date.
