I also saw that Paul Ferruci with the pink Malibu is battling pancreatic cancer. My prayers go out to he and his family, and I think they have it set up where you can donate to help with his battle.

Since many people have FB, you get a lot of members, but you also get a lot of jerk offs. Forums help keep that number down. I prefer forums ;) and yes I'm old LOL

I think it's public to view but you have to join... spammers kept joining while it was open to everyone and ads for phones, clothes and other useless stuff... likely bots. I made it join by request to cut down on that number.

I don't do Facebook, so I guess I lose?

I haven't been here for some time; I just popped in to take a look.

I really miss the activity that use to be here. Although I do not facebook, I've been away as life has brought me other interests. Still have my almost complete, never ending project of a Malibu. This site had been a valuable resource for me. Hey TOMS78BU, sounds like your on the right path. Best Wishes!

Much more activity on FB, but it doesn't seem as personal to me. I know, kind of odd. I've made more friends on this page than are into Malibu's than anywhere else. Some I've even met in person and have kept in contact with....

Thanks. I am trying. I hope to be down to 175 lbs by my sister's wedding in November.
