To be fair I think the days of the Internet forum are almost over. Most people are migrating to the likes of Friendface, Twatter and the other social media/micro-blogging sites.
For the larger part I suspect this forum has also run it's course and served it's purpose. Most of us have moved on and no longer put such an onus on all things automotive. Even I am reduced to one car which is a run of the mill Eurobox with comfort and economy in mind rather than excitement.
For the most part I only visit the forum now to keep in touch with people as I have made some good friends (and Rob) through the fourms. Would be a shame to lose touch altogether. I suspect most of us are, truth be told, in the same boat.
Not wanting to be a party pooper of course, but I think the reality is, that life progresses and most of us have moved on.

I go through phases of going on the forums constantly then not visiting for a while. The forums are always to do with the car I have at the time although I have been in the Fiat forum since about 2000 and always popped back there from time to time even when I'd sold the first coupe.
The banter and access to technical knowledge and solutions is one of the best things about the internet. I enjoy the car club scene and meeting owners of like cars to compare and get ideas and always will I think.

Sad as it is, it's the same across all online communities now, be it musical instruments or cars for me.
Lucky if I remember to pass by here once a week/month now, but had some fond memories over the years, will be sad to see it go if it does as it's nice to pop in every now and again and see how everyone is doing, and the tech sections could never really be replicated over on Social Media sites.

I've finally decided to go back on Facebook. Maybe I'll get to see some of the Prescott photos Rob took!
