Attention RJ Forum Brothers!
 
We used to have a great crew of guys on here that would post daily, get involved in tracking down scammers and always praising the good guys.
We talked about the good times and the bad, we have seen some of the true originals pass on, R.I.P. Zip, and we have seen some just get upset and leave. By the way, I still have Rudys email, going to beg him to come back.
I invite everyone to please come back and start posting up whenever possible.
Lets hear about your cars, work, home, hobbies, etc.
I think we can bring this place back to life but its gonna take more than just me.
By the way, I have been asked to be the new forum moderator and am extremely honored to do so. This is a non-paying gig but I have spent almost 10 years on here, this being the 1st forum I ever signed up for, and I kind of consider this place my home so to speak.
So gentlemen what do you all say, can we pump some life back into this beast?

Swiley383 08-26-2016 07:43 PM

Hope so. I was acutely wonder about yellow brick, outlaw, juice earlier today. Wonder how they are?

mytmouz 08-26-2016 10:59 PM

I have LOL'ed about people moaning about the death of the forum and lack of posts, then a newb shows up with a question, and they tell them to go to YB. I check in daily here, though I don't post much. I am in to try to get it back going though...

Congrats on the mod gig, I was hoping they would offer it to you...

mytmouz 08-26-2016 11:01 PM

And first order of mod business it to please fix the post count. I have passed a thousand at least 3 times since I joined, lol...

deward 09-14-2016 08:37 AM

Used to be that when ever I had a question (car related) this is where I would come. You guys always had some great answers. Hope this Site gets back to the "good all days".

Harbone 09-14-2016 10:42 AM

deward we are trying, just have to get everyone to keep posting, asking questions and such
I do know that there are safeguards in place now to keep the spambots from taking over like they did late last year

DirkaDirka 09-14-2016 11:51 AM

Wow I didnt realize its been that long. I cant believe its been 3 years since I sold the Stang. I havent been the same since BUT I did get a new toy a couple months ago to play on. So how evetybody been. I been driving truck like crazy for the past 2 1/2 yrs. On my way up to Maryland right now.

Hello guys,
Hope the world is treating everyone well!
Racingjunk and the friends I have "met" on here are high on my list, and I will be happy to get back on this fun ride.Here is a little update:
My 2 beautiful, smart daughters are in college ( both are highly respected members of Team Magnuson Racing, are greatly missed at the track) Wife is still georgous, and healthy and most of the time happy ;). I sold my 1970 Yellow chevelle , Street strip car and thought it was out of system, but I went to a drivers meeting with my buddy last year and here we go again .
Currently putting the interior back into my most recent build. 1969 Chevelle 540 BBC T 400w/ brake 12 bolt spool, mini tubbed, stretched quarters, older ladder bar car, very solid body, great fun car.
Jeff

Harbone 09-14-2016 12:41 PM

Swiley383 09-16-2016 04:13 PM

Dirka you still up in Clarksville?

shawnp 09-18-2016 06:40 AM

Hope to see things pick back up in here. I have been a little unhappy with RJ and some of the changes they made, especially how we get and send messages. Good luck on getting the forum back up and back on track. Congrats on your new role.

DirkaDirka 09-18-2016 11:29 AM

Yeppers. Still kicking it in Clarksville

Swiley383 09-18-2016 05:23 PM

Things are going good Mopar. Been really busy trying to catch up on things. I broke my hand at the end of April was laid up for a month then it got stinking hot where I didn't want to do anything after work. So now I'm trying to get my shop done on the inside before winter and the last7 or 8 cord of wood cut,split and stacked. Other than that not much. Lol

BEAST477 09-19-2016 04:53 PM

Oh yeah that's all been going good. Just did my annual check up last week and they don't want to see me for two years now!

Harbone 09-20-2016 07:40 AM

Mopar1968, did you get converted over to Alcohol?

Harbone 09-28-2016 02:39 PM

I have tried to find Rudy, cant seem to find him on Facebook but I havent been on there in 2 years. I messaged him thru a PM on here but haveseen no reply. Also no luck with Scorp or Outlaw either, that has me worried since they were both having health issues
