Indeed many of us "old timers" are still out here. :-)

I think quite a few have moved on to Mid 90 S6 or similar.... so far these
are holding up quite well and leaving less to discuss than in the "Glory
Days" of Type 44 endless issues.

My daily ride is an 89TQA with 240K miles but I don't need to post much as
I've already done most of regular R&R once/twice.  I suspect that many now
just lurk since they have the information they need for most of the usual

I do have fond memories of Phil P chastising Bob Dupree for creating the
"Franken Car" LT-1Q which is now my regular track car.

I am grateful for the community here... I'm also working on my P-Car and it
is amazing at the lack of a really, really good forums.  Some good Tech
articles but not the same level of help at all.
