    Since it's 2021, I guess I'll log in at least once this decade and say hello. How many of the old guard are still around?

      Hey,

      I am still around and check in a few times a week. Activity is nothing like the old days. I miss the forum heydays. I don't do Facebook.

      I still have my 85T and Z32, will never get rid of either of them. Owning a Zcar for 36 years and another for 26, they become family members with names. You don't trade in a brother or daughter. LOL
      Restore it, Don't crush it. They don't make them like this anymore.

        I'm still here. Still have the 87 Slicktop, and two parts cars. But havent touched them in years, drove the slicktop for a week back in 2019 but she's worn out, needs more work.

        I was on Facebook for the last decade or so, but November 2020 my Facebook was hacked and I don't feel the dire need to make a new one, additionally Facebook support is the definition of inefficient, still havent regained total access to the account, I was able to reset the password but the hacker set it to Vietnamese language and set up an Authenticator that I cannot access, and of course Facebook support only respons once a month, if that, so I've given up on it.

        If anyone is curious about me or what I've been up to, in more detail, I've posted a thread in the social lounge.

          Well, I'll be danged. Hey guys, long time no Z!

          Still have the '87. It's pretty much a daily driver and has been for a while because I've been a bit too lazy as of late to do overdue maintenance on the truck. Starting to get warm again so maybe I'll finally get it done.

          Also time to do the timing belt again on the Z. Past due actually... so it will probably be first on the list.

            My car takes up a prime position in my garage while 2 cars are parked outside, so if it didn't run strong and still allow me to drive it hard I would put a bullet in her head! I wish this board was a little busier, but seems like these type of forums are not as busy as they were back in the old days. I remember Z31.com days with "Morgan" whoever that dude was that board was busy in the 90's and early 2000's and I got tons of great advise, lines on parts and repairs too. This board has been great but it is slow, but I think NICO is slow too and even the biggest Mercedes Benz board I just started using a year ago is pretty slow.

              Personally, I blame Facebook for a majority of that.

              I still keep the Arkansas Z Car Club website up and online along with its forums, but they almost never get used anymore. That decline started when everyone started talking on Facebook as it makes quick messages super easy and folks tend to get a bit lazy.

              What I hate about it is that information gets lost within a couple of weeks if not days or hours depending upon how many people use it.
              It has been the reason for many a slow death of popular forums and websites, but small and large... far and wide.

              Z31.com was a unique experience. That which did not kill you there made you stronger. Made many a post there.

                Indeed.

                It beat you into compliance with a online code of conduct that I still adhere to: Do your research and ask informed and detailed questions to the best of your ability.

                Also don't hotlink, else tubgirl will haunt your dreams.
