I have noticed that there aren't many new posts here any more like there always used to be. I see the traffic is up. Must be a lot of readers, but not posters. I've been a member here since 1998 before it split off from Clifford Research & Col Jack ran the forum for them. There used to be some pretty lively discussions about these beloved old Ford sixes. It breaks my heart to see the seemingly downward spiral of the forum. I still think this forum is by far the greatest forum online. The people are friendly & helpful & always have been. I say these things with great admiration of everyone on the forum & the greatness of this site. I do hope it continues far into the future with the knowledge base & camaraderie there has always been. I have been fortunate enough to meet a few fellow old Ford sixers including Mike himself before the "new cylinder head". I cherish those memories & still look forward to great discussions & interaction with other site members. Hope you all are having a great morning!

Yes I agree traffic looks to be good but not many questions being asked, maybe people are just reading the old posts and finding out what they need to know. My theory is some of this was caused by the "Cash for Clunkers" program that destroyed many useable parts as well as the crushing and scraping of the bodies too, been looking for an affordable project car for some time prices are up high in this area so not much left that I can afford. Have been told there are things still going on over at the Facebook part of our site, I can't verafy that because I haven't been on Facebook for several years. :nod:

Like many forums things are quiet and not much is happening. So many of us have been not able to do much. I have stock stock with suppliers and dealers waiting on parts that I can not send. In some places forums have been quiet due to spam controls as well and I have been made aware of forum issues on both the HAMB and Garage Journal forums.

It is sad to say but so many now like Social Media and things like Facebook that is full of bad information.

I am a newbie and what I do instead of creating a new thread is just use the search bar for the topic that I want to get an answer from.

Some people are becoming nervous about the use of forums with so many scams etc. I have also read and seen diversions from forums to porn sites and with young children that is not something you want to see.

Morning boys,
Yup, I’ve been cruising the forum reading and not posting. Don’t really have a good reason why. I suppose it’s because I don’t have any significant projects going on with the Falcon. This year, no car cruises or car shows are taking place due to... well you know. I do have a regeared (3.55) 63 Falcon V8 rear in the basement sitting there. Also have 67 Mustang spindles and the adapters for a disc conversation but what I lack is desire. Kid is in college and I know I’d have to get new wheels. If I get those, then I need tires. If I get all of that, why not drop it a bit too. If I rebuild the suspension, I really would like bags. And the list goes on...

TFFN is just about shut down. Not many can get in anymore and the admin can’t access the database. Lots of car info that’ll get lost over there. Similar to how this site has great performance info. I know, we also have info on brakes and suspension but the focus has been engine performance (Not being critical!).

The real problem is that I have too many different hobbies and not enough time. That damn work thing gets in the way...

X2 on the pic posting.
I've also been trying to video my version of no-machinist log work for both adapters on one log,but my help is easily distracted and my Mk1 eyeballs shouldn't be trusted to focus anything.
A face for radio and a voice for a cement plant is yet another handicap,right?
