    It's funny to think that the cars we love are anywhere from 14 to about 25 years old!


    It just goes to show that Mercedes made some great models there in the 70's, 80's, and 90's, especially the W123 and W201.

    Well thanks guys for the "walk through memory lane!"

    I saw MTI is still around.

    That much is True.

    People change too. We haven't seen FlyNavy for years, and we still wonder how his engine transplant is coming along.
    Chuni has all but evaporated
    GSXR lives over on Gerry's forum - the 500Eboard
    Of course Bob passed away and we shouldn't forget how much he contributed.
    SG (Steve) recently posted to part out his 3 16v's
    Glen is still around reasonably regularly
    Ake occasionally visits.

    Yes. Yes You Do.

    I think there is a decline in participation due to social media, but there are still plenty of 'visits' - just fewer new posts.

    If there was a better way to integrate with FB / G+ / Instagram etc, then I'm sure it wouldn't seem so quiet, But integration with those "services" brings a whole new set of problems with them.

    Nonetheless, the answers to the repetitive questions asked on the FB page are still here hehe

    Well people could post here, copy the link, then post the link on FB or maybe somewhere on the Forum's backend have a notification auto create an FB post. There are game apps that do that. I don't use Tapatalk, seen it used by other forums, but maybe there is something that could.

  14. Yeah it doesn't seem like there are a lot of active threads

    There isn't a lot of active threads, but it will remain a great resource to do searches in.

    I'm sure it will come back some as people realize that the facebook newsfeed has nothing on forum formatting.

    Considering how long the forum has been around, the number of topics addressed and quite literally beaten to death {R/16 anyone?}, it's not surprising that the forum is more of a repository of data that folks peruse rather than post. Also, it's the natural progression of the age of the cars and owners. Bulletin boards and forums were all the rage fifteen years ago and the W201 owners who were computer savvy enough to join them have grown up, moved on and the current generation of owners tend to be more "social media" oriented.

    We'll continue to be around for awhile longer at least.
