Where is Doc Fiberglass?
Not that I like the guy but JohnRR used to be a frequent contributor but has been conspicuously absent.
Cal Gecko used to post about his Dart and post some great pictures.
Wes Hutchingson, Street Van Dan, In the Pink, Paint it Black, MickM, Sandy in NS......
I expected to see more activity with all the shutdowns and such.


While I didn't really post all that much, and certainly don't rate myself among the distinguished company mentioned above, my reason for staying away these past few months is simple: It's virtually unusable on a mobile device. I spend my days working behind a keyboard & screen, I have no desire to waste leisure time there as well. If I'm wasting time on message boards/social media, I like to do so on my phone while relaxing on my deck with an adult beverage.....

I've met a few (very few) members from here over the years. Only one 'bad' meeting but they haven't been here in over a decade. I wish I had been better able to interact with people back then, I'm a LOT more out going now than I was back then. Shoot, I met ZIPPY back when he had his .....'Mongolian Battle Wagon' (I think that was the name he gave his old wagon work ), much to my embarrassment the more calm and relaxed I tried to be, the more star struck I felt. blush

Back to topic, who remembers Carl? He may have been a wealth of info, but from my vantage point, seemed like he was trying to take over the board.


I thought you were cool, and interacted just fine. Didn't notice anything not calm or not relaxed.

Sometimes in life we might feel awkward but nobody can tell...that was one of those times.
I thought you were a nice feller and was nice to meet you.

Carl did alot of helpful things for tech archive maintenance, but was also stickler for no swearing and things like that wheras the younger folks tended to let alot of little things slide.
I know that drove people crazy.

He also seemed to make the time to read just about everything, which....alot of times....the more you read, the worse it seems (and it doesn't matter what "it" is!)

My take anyway,

Dean


Yes indeed. I am a 90's member and live and breath Mopar and still do today, so I am going nowhere. Besides, those few who post nowadays usually make me laugh and I find I need more and more of that in these times... work


Im not sure when I joined. It seems 1998-99 or close. The site then changed some how and I and I had to join again so the date may be later.. Anyway.... There were some Real Characters to remember and also a few Epic conversations. Unlawful, Dart Girl, One Bad Super-Bird to name a few. I don't know if the archive goes back far enough, but if you can find the Carl Payne 1970 Daytona Charger thread, take the time to read all 20 or 25 pages. It's better than any current Sit-Com. Personally, I started a Business in 2010 and Expanded it in 2012. There went my time to enjoy MoParts. Now, with a Covid-19 No Customers Break, I can come back and check things out from time to time. This is the best Site for MoPar Tech, Parts, Sales, Events, Etc. I always put people on to it.


If you don't start it , you don't have to end it.

Looking for a way out of Middl...
I dropped off for a long while because I got super busy. Still busy and only make it in once a week or so. Maybe others are like me and are just busy.

I looked into the No holds barred, politics okay, forum. I realized if I read enough of it I would start to dislike many members I currently respect so I don't waste my time there. I started to respond to one post there, thought it over and deleted it. Haven't been back in there since.

I talked to one member who used to post a dozen times a day and he said he left because of the infolinks. I use AdBlock Plus so it never bothered me but apparently it was an issue for some.

iagree Yep, I looked in there and it was definitely a mistake. Ended up losing a whole lot of respect for folks due to their attitude and the way they treated others, some who
I previously thought would be cool to meet someday and shake hands with really turned out to be the opposite.

Personally I was taught as a child that one of the most important skills of being a decent human being is developing the ability to communicate wherever it is you stand, on any topic at all,
without trashing anyone else. Apparently that's not in style anymore so I'm out.

There was a time when importance and cool factor was pretty darn high.
I've definitely made friends here (99.9% in entirely a different era), and I transitioned from a broke musician to a career automotive guy partially as a result of my posting tech info on Moparts,
so it'll always occupy a place in my heart. But these days, there is really no reason to ever go too far in depth as information isn't archived the way it was several years ago.
Nobody really tries to save anything or pays much attention because they think they can always find it later by searching for two seconds (believe me, that's not always true).

I'll crawl out from under my rock and post a bunch of pics to maybe get a conversation going....I will start threads about whatever project I'm working on and hopefully get some kind of a constructive conversation and exchange of
ideas started....maybe inspire someone in some small way...but other than that stuff, I'm pretty sure nobody wants my advice
or really cares what I have to say anymore anyway LOL. I keep trying to learn something here as I did in the '90s and there is less and less of that available...and it sure as HECK ain't because
there is nothing left to learn, far from it.

You know, if you hang around for awhile, the same people usually post mostly the same things over and over anyway (myself included).
Everyone repeats themself to a pretty fair extent.
It's usually alot more constructive to get someone on the phone or preferably in person and have a real conversation.



I poked my head there a few times and yes it gets a little ugly and you can be assured if that section had free rein like the bullet it would right out of control. It amazes me how hateful people can be when talking politics. I can honestly say that I am glad that
I live in CANADA.

Lots of screen names from the past popping up in this thread that I'd forgotten about. Has TheOtherDodge and BigKahuna been mentioned yet? Wow, there have been a long list of characters here.

I've meet a few people from here, but only ones that have been local to me or passing through. There are a few I've communicated with through PMs and email beyond the board but I haven't met in person yet. There are some I know we have lost to disease and illness along the way. I have sent a few sympathy cards out to member's survivors over the years. Been following the board since around 97-98. Probably right after it became Moparts from what I think was a Texas Mopars board or something like that.

I've only ventured into the political forum a few times to read and have never posted. Reviewing the few topics I've seen in their reinforced many of the negative perceptions others have posted here. Frankly, I can get that amount of nastiness at work any day of the week so I prefer to not engage in it when I'm trying to enjoy a hobby forum.

Yes, sometimes the tech does get repeated. Sometimes its annoying, but I always try to remember that just because its may be old hat to me, its actually great that someone new is asking. It is always interesting to read some of my older posts.

Challenger1 is one that I haven't seen post in a while, he took up flying so he may be spending his time on forums that pertain his new interests.

I've never been in the politics forum and probably never will, I see no good coming from being there.

I too run adblock on my desk top and run a browser on my tablet that blocks ads, Moparts is the only site I use that browser for. I spend more time on forAbodiesonly now than here.

Whaaaat's up? I haven't been here in a while - honestly, lost interest in the Dart - the fuel sending unit seal caused fuel to leak all over my garage a few years back, and after finally being able to find a replacement sending unit (it took me about 6 months to find one), I went to install it and found that the fuel line fitting size was the wrong size - and I have just not gotten around to ordering a new one, and now I'm discouraged to even bother because I know all that gas has probably gunked up my fuel lines and carb, and just can't be bothered. Additionally, I got burned on cars when I had someone I thought was a friend, doing an engine swap in my wife's '66 mustang (going from a straight six to a 5.0 out of an Explorer), and he totally screwed me over (after taking 2 years to do a butcher job on the swap) to the tune of about $4k... so I've just been super discouraged on the old cars. Also, been focusing on photography work, making some side cash doing that and keeping myself busy.

Hope you guys are all doing well and taking care of yourselves during these rough times.
