    Are there any other active forums on pro-touring or restomods? I find FB is great for buying and selling small stuff, not so much for finding any useful info, and far too many opinions rather than facts. IG is good for inspiration, to see some of the great builds that are out there.

    Is there any way to integrate FB and IG with the forum? The forum structure is so much better but FB and IG have clearly stolen a ton of traffic from here and other forums. Maybe making a hybrid system would help bring it back? Just a thought.

    I don't believe that's necessarily true. Yes, you don't see as many questions posted, but that doesn't mean people aren't coming to the site. The one advantage is the ability to search for previously-asked questions prior to posing your own. As the site has been around for years, "what size tire can I fit on my Camaro" has been answered about a 1000 times

    I come here far more often than my postings would suggest. Typically I find my answer in a search, or simply don't have an information to add to a thread.

    We are (slowly) working on a new forum that will allow you to link yourself and any posts you want to FB and IG. It's optional and when and what you want.

    I only use forums. Groups on FB are "OK" but suck because they are difficult to search and posts get easily lost. The best thing about forums is there are 20 years worth of threads to search.

    For lasting information and reasoned discussions you can't beat the forum but FB has it's uses too if you have a sudden problem or need info quickly. I use both. Instagram is for millenials and less, to me it's really only for showing off your pictures.

    I must not know how to use FB or gram at all because when I look at groups it's just random info...not at all organized or what you want to read about....I probably just don't know how to use it. Forums are far superior for organized detailed info at least for me...Iv learned a lot here
