So glad to see that the site will remain, this has always been my go-to for gbody stuff. I've been out of the game for a while but I need to get back working on that thing. Thanks for keeping it alive!

Just sent out a mass email announcing the site is still alive, and of course a @$% ton of those e-mails are bouncing back. welp, it sounded like a good idea at the time. hopefully this isn't a bad thing. I thought e-mail addresses were like luggage, you keep that junk forever. lol.
==================================================
WOW whata flashback! THANKS for the invite and heads up! I've been outta the gbody game for long time, I sold my last one back in 05, I have looked at some wagons over the years but nothin panned out.

I had a stroke in 2017 that's taken me out of the mechanicin game pretty much totally and my Dad died in 2012 and I inherited my 72 Chevelle SS Convertible back, so it takes up my garage space yearly as it don't see anything but sunny weather.
I really do appreciate the email and will try to stop in once in a while to see whats up, TAKE CARE ALL!

Hi There,
I'm definitely glad to see some new interest in Malibu Racing! I had a lot of fun, learned quite a bit and got some great deals on parts hanging out on here over the years, I've been popping in from time to time to see if anything was going on and it just made me sad to see there wasn't hardly any action at all, hopefully we can get it back on track! Catch You All Later! KillerDave

I reconfigured things to use the "i am not a robot" challenge for registration, so hopefully this means we can get REAL PEOPLE signing up instead of and endless stream of spambots. Moderators, if you see this, try to keep an eye on things, I'll be doing the same. If it works, great, if not I'll just turn registration back off again.... *fingers crossed*

Edit: And I'm enabling the "stopforumspam" extension here same as on the rest of my sites. That should be another layer on top of it....

OK. I'm going to take the step of outright DELETING all the users who signed up and either didn't verify their accounts.... or NEVER posted and HAVE NOT been to the site in 6 months. So if you never posted, and haven't visited the site in six months, I apologize but your account needs to go. For one it will get rid of a lot of the spammer sleeper accounts, and two it frees up usernames for those who actually want to use them. When I get this board switched to XF it shouldn't be as big a deal.... So. Stand by.

I also removed a few of the user fields that are most popular with spammers, like the "website" (obviously) and the ICQ/AIM fields since neither of those exist any more. I will be removing the member list page when I remember how to do that on phpBB (lol) bc that's just a way for spammers to mine data and spam you in PMs.

Yeah so I guess I can't delete users and the ability to view the memberlist is lumped in with other things that are actually useful. :roll:

....stay tuned I guess..

Great to have it back!!! I don't visit here as often as I used to due to life keeping me way to busy. Hopefully just sidelined for now. Thanks for the effort!

Every now and then I know it's hard to tell, but I'm still alive & well!

Haven't been on the forum much in a few years but I've still got my Malibu. Been over 3 years since I last posted anything. New format looks good.

Haven't been here in quite some time.. I like the new look. Was using face book but it's so impersonal... I'll definitely be back..

Well I'm (I think) finished mostly with "Phase I" ... moving the static/informational stuff at the root domain into something manageable and consistent. Just click the big banner on top to check it out. If you notice pages loading that don't have the right "style" and banner, please LMK so I can find them. Likewise visiting the old pages should redirect to the new ones. Well, most of them, I know there's several that aren't finished, and a bunch that are just floating not linked to from anything that I need to sort out.

...

I'm getting ready for "Phase II".... moving this away from phpBB and into XenForo... stay tuned.
