NEW FEATURE: Post Like system!!!

At long last, we have successfully implemented a comprehensive post rating/like system. With casual readers and visitors vastly outnumbering frequent posters, it is not always apparent to users that others are reading, enjoying and grateful for their posts. If you are too shy to post and want to express your thanks, now you can!

Liking a post is easy - click this thumbs up in the top right hand corner of the post: Image

Can I encourage everyone to use this new feature enthusiastically and liberally and be sure to go back to your favourite old topics and like old posts. This will help build up useful user 'like' profiles and give credit to the users who has provided so much value to this community. This in turn helps guests and newcomers sort useful answers and posters from others.

This goes to regular forum lurkers especially - please show your appreciation with a 'like'!

Featuring:
  • Liked post counters in every user profile (given & received)
  • Liked post leaderboard accessible from the index and Quick Links Menu
  • Receive notifications when your post is liked, configurable from the User Control Panel (in forum notification and/or email notifications available or off)
  • You can remove a like if you made a mistake by clicking the undo button where the thumbs up used to sit (but the user will be notified)
  • Plus more


Read the announcement and post any queries, comments or suggestions HERE

Once read, this announcement can be dismissed by clicking on the 'X' in the top right hand corner.

Nah. I'd feel bad asking a bunch more than I paid for it and it's worth way more to me than a sensible asking price.

About time people started to catch onto these. Seem to be a better quality than the later mazdas, built to last.

I took mine for a drive the other day, can't get enough of it...I love it to bits. Pick my 13bt cosmo motor up for it next weekend too.

Anyone have an opinion on whether 1500's need to be caged to take 450hp? I don't plan to run slicks on it, so that should avoid the issue of cracking paint etc a bit....

Seam welding probably wouldn't hurt either. A 1500/1800 was originally intended to have all of about 80hp, so going with about 6 times as much power is going to be doing some bad things.

Less talking more pictures!

This is the car that really got me into Luces:
