I would just like to thank all ya'll that have kept this page open all these years. The amount of info that i've been able to find, and reacquaint myself with has been nothing short of amazing. It had been quite a few years since i've played with a TC and this page has been quite a frequent. I find myself on here way more then the facebook groups. To much drama and BS. I'm not sure who's on top here anymore, I see alot of familiar faces though. 

Thanks yall Its great to be a small part of the game again. From my first 84 i bought in 2006, to my current 86 TC.

Yes. Several former folks that used to post here—whom I have had phone conversations with—highly recommended the Facebook page. I didn’t find it all that useful, seems like a lot of speed and racing stuff, and fancy mods.

I much prefer how we do it on here.

I am "on" the Facebook thing, though I am barely involved with Facebook itself let alone the user group.
Nothing wrong with what they have I don't think. But you can't really compare the two.
I see people ask question. And they have more pictures. But they are not set up in a way(I don't think it could be) where that information is preserved for the future.
I very much enjoy this site. I think there are some things that we could work at to make it even more powerful. But the amount of help that everyone offers is amazing, I wouldn't be able to try anything with confidence if not for you guys.
I'm not just learning about my car, I'm learning car repair in general.
I only wish I could contribute to the site, I just don't have much to offer as far as knowledge goes.

Its a bit easier and convenient on Facebook.
but the drama does get a bit much.
im on just about all the groups 83-97 t bird related.
ill answer questions but most of the times i don't, tired of being questioned even tho ive been on here since 2000.
we are around. observing. a few of us talk privatly on facebook when someone asks a question and other people answer it incorrectly..

im glad its still going. proud member of NATO. i dunno if my dues are even paid up. are they??

When I joined up several years ago, I thought once you supplied your PayPal info. it was automatic. I don't think it is as I had to manually renew.
If you click your name in the top right corner, a drop down menu should appear. If you then click on edit options and then subscriptions, it should show you if you have an active subscription. I'm pretty sure if it's not active you will see something clickable to get the ball rolling on that.
