I was noticing the same thing, Dick. Summer's over, I guess.

It has been pretty lonely here for sure Dick! I guess (almost) everybody has gone "Facebook"(?) Harry

I think I'm guilty of not posting as well...

Every day during the work week, I tend to check the dates of the last posts at lunch, but if I don't see anything new, I don't tend to post either.
Since my "project car" has been on the back burner for many years, I seem to live vicariously through all you guys... I don't seem to have much reason to post something new these days on my own.
I'm sort of "chauffer for the kids", they are at that age. Maybe in another decade I'll get my life back :rolleyes:

I read this forum almost daily, but only post if I have something to ad,

I've noticed many, many forums have decreased visits,
not just auto related,

sign of the times?

I think Facebook is taking over, hopefully this site will stay around. So much info here. The Yahoo Forums are almost completely dead. I check here everyday at least, some times 2-3 times a day.

I still check in a couple of times a day, and I too have noticed things are pretty quiet. I sincerely hope the forum remains active; in general, things on here are much friendlier, and any info passed around much more accurate.
The "fleet"-
77 Vega Estate wagon- project(someday)will have TPI305/T-5, S-10 spindles/axles
72 Vega HB Drag Car -383/'Glide/9"(9.35@146.19)(5.94@117.28 1/8th)
76 Vega GT- 400/4spd/9" retired from active duty(rusty)
03 Silverado 2WD (work truck/parts hauler)
04 Silverado 2WD (retired)
06 Haulin' 20ft enclosed car transporter
93 Suburban- 350/4L60(retired)
00 Saturn SW2- wife's car
01 Saturn SC2- younger son's project
00 Saturn SL2- daughter's car
98 Saturn SW2- spare
and 3 more Saturn "parts cars"
Note- the very act of listing all of these has made me realize I have some kind of problem.....

Best place on the web.......
Sadly, I rarely have anything going on in my h-body world.... currently, fighting an "easy" head swap on the 215.

I check FB occasionally for other stuff (mostly rallycross/autocross) but I sometimes post on a Vega or H-body group over there. Most times in answer to their questions, I reference back here for them to come check out the posts with their answer.
I'll google their request with in search or use the h-body search function and add that link to their post on FB in hopes of drawing more folks here.

How anyone with an H-body could not use this wealth of knowledge here is beyond me.

I'm back, been on a summer road trip around the U.S. First thing when I got back was to take the Skyhawk down to the Burger King in Arlington WA to catch up. Still surprised at how many people do not know or have seen what an H body is.
