Should this section be about ALL makes and models, or just Forward Look models?

I know we all have varied interests that span across the vehicle universe.  I'd like to avoid making a separate section if possible, though.

Keep the non-FL stuff in the Nether Region. I have a thread there about my daughter's car. It's one of my projects, but since it isn't FL, it doesn't belong up here.

Hmmm...balloting is really close; I was the 13th FWDLK-only vote.

Now, if we can only get a "Forwardlook-Lifestyle" board, and (being generous and
observant)...a "Lowered-Look" Kustom/Hot Rod FWDLK board.

There are several threads that dont belong in the 1955-1961 Forward Look MoPar General Discussion already. As the forum is set up, all not related threads should be placed in the Neither Region. I made such mistakes myself, and probably I'll slip again, but it would be nice if we tried to keep a snug ship

As much as I enjoy looking at other cars, This is a Mopar forum, I think its fine as it is

Another place for members other rides would be cool, might get more traffic than some of the regional places

The advanyage of this forum (to me) is that I can come here and read about cars that are the same or simmilar to mine and generally learn stuff.

To find stuff thats here, if this was the HAMB for example, would be very hard.

Oh, and not slamming the HAMB, I do go rhere as well sometimes

Forwardlook only. I do like the thought of another section to post member's other cars (not in the Netherworld). I also like the idea of a section for posting car related 'for sale' or CL/ebay listings that are interesting, but not Forwardlook. The Nether Region is just too all-encompassing and is best for jokes and silly photos.

One could change the name of this subforum to "Members FWDLK Rides", and make a subforum directly under it with the name "Members (Other) Mopar Rides" for instance.

I think a good number of folks here have 'newer' (60s/70s) Mopars but never post anything about that.
Since a lot of (fi. drivetrain) parts from newer Mopars are usable and are being used in FWDLKers, I don't think such a subforum would be out of line on this site.
I'm not sure yet if maybe a certain age-restriction could/should be kept to keep away the most of the "boring" '80s and newer dailydriver stuff. Maybe not, although personally I don't care much for cars from those years.

I do vote against having GM, Ford or any other stuff posted 'here' in the normal forums. The sewer seems most appropriate for that.

Some other makes are cool but I think anyone who comes on this forum expects to see FL Mopars. Dave did a great job in ceating this site and by providing a place for off-topic posts. Let's keep it that way.

Well, in addition to "Forwardlook Lifestyle", and "The Lowered Look" message boards, there could always be a "NON-Forwardlook MoPar" message board.

If members want to discuss the "other" makes why not just make a dedicated sub section where they can do so without clogging up the FL sections? It's already difficult enough on here periodically to find what one is looking for.

That's zactly what I mean...the Kustoms & Rods would know where to go, as would the other MoPars, and, the people who would just want to kick back and chat about "living the life".

I love cars of all makes and eras, and I REALLY enjoy seeing what other vehicles my FL pals own and treasure.

But I still think that it would be preferable to have a separate area where folks could share and view info and photos of their non-FL cars, trucks, bikes, etc. if they so wished.

That way, anyone who is interested in only the FL related posts wouldn't have to wade through all of the potential non-FL related posts and photos to get to what it is that they came to site for in the first place.

As an example, the NDC site has a separate photo album "For Non DeSoto Cars" which creates an option for those who do want to enjoy those photos which can otherwise be easily avoided by those who do not.

I won't vote on this one, but I agree with Slim. Somewhere in the archives there was a thread about MEMBERS that can show what they drive or projects in addition to their finned Mopar. I enjoy that. There is a section in our forum here that is not FL. It is non-FL cars for sale. I don't think all other than Mopar should be regulated to the Nether Region Some folks do not feel comfortable sloshing around in the sewer, and I respect that......................MO

I am still voting for a Forwardlook-only forum and for a separate forum for other member rides, but I disagree that it should be mopar only. It should be for any car or truck. I doubt too many members here will clog the forum with their prized Chevy Corsica. It is fun to share our excitement for other project cars, whatever they may be.....and for some of us, to read about them.

Same for a non-forwardlook for sale/ebay/CL forum. I would hope most posters won't be clogging the forum up with random daily drivers, but with interesting/weird/wacky/beautiful cars of any make or country of origin.

Both would add more engagement opportunities for posters and readers. Isn't that what a "community" is for?

if everyone is thinking i'm for posting other makes , "I"M NOT" . what i am against is making such a huge fuss over something of a non rampant nature and if the author of the thread was just here
to start trouble , then i to would stand with the masses but that's not the case . the author is a long standing member that's helped a lot of people and the story line behind the thread has
merit . i don't think we need a separate forum at all . it was an extremely small mistake made by a good guy . just sit back in your seat a few seconds and think about how that person is feeling
about now . do you really think it was his intention to create problems . it's a big fuss over little to nothing ------------------------------------------------------later

I see I am outvoted by a wide margin, but as a fan of all sorts of old cars and trucks, and understanding
that man does not live by Forward Look alone, I see no issue in having a place like Member's Rides to share
pictures and stories of all our cars.

I even see an advantage Bob discovering that Harry also restores Henry J's and makes a connection that
he might not otherwise have ever made if Harry's Henry J photos weren't allowed. I mean, why not ? The
rest this site is pretty much dedicated to FL stuff. How does having a more "personal" forum cause problems ?
And if it does, ask the poster to clamp it.

Or we could break this out into two different forums like: "Member's Forward Look Rides" and "Member's
Non-Forward Look Rides" ?

I am with Chuck, ... I don't see the "problem" and actually like a little diversity.

There is sooooooo much info on cars in general on the internet. One thing I love about this site is it's focus. Stay focused! I will not bother searching out content I want if I have to sort through your AMC Pacer, Jeep Truckster Sport, Ford Vomit Patch or Chevy Rubber Stamp. Oh yeah, keep your Plymouth Cricket to yourself too.

FL's only!!!!!!!!!!

or I go shopping for a site that has what they advertise....

Should this section be about ALL makes and models, or just Forward Look models?

p>

If the only choice's are "forward look" or all others ..... I choose "forward look".

However I do see a crossover into the Mopar C body area and think that a section dedicated to them would benefit the forum. I am active over on the FCBO site and we recently included a section dedicated to "Forward Look" cars that has been well received. A bunch of "Forward Look" cars owned by C body owners, (myself included), came out of the woodwork. It resulted in several new and active members and is a wealth of information to the C body folks who admire the "Forward Look" era.

FL is my vote as this site could be over taken by threads that I have no interest in.

I visit a dozen or more Mopar sites, so I get my "other ride" fix from those that don't specialize. I prefer the focus of this site and don't even discuss my modified Forward Look car on this forum, even though it's all Chrysler.

I agree with ChryslerMan here. There are so many forums out there... millions... about everything under the sun. This is a focused site and we really should keep it that way.

Am I against posting about our other cars? Heck no. But I would like a specific section out there for non-FL. If necessary I will help by being a moderator. I can step up and do that. I am on this site every night I can be looking at what everyone is doing anyway.

I don't think there is anything wrong with all of us sharing our other projects.  I have a 66 Barracuda I could post about as well.  But lets put it in a place that doesn't make us look like a "post about any car you have" site. 

I think another Sub-section called FL Members Other Rides / Projects is in order?

I feel its a bit prudish, but I think this section SHOULD be about f/look mopars

I like other makes as well and I certainly enjoy seeing them, but not here (in this section)

There is a miscellaneous section for cars or whatever that are not f/l cars for sale

A section somewhere for cars that are not for sale and not f/l cars would be cool too, but (as said) there are plenty of all make sites around (HAMB for example) that cater for this

The heading for this section specifies that the cars be f/l only

Information is knowledge - if this site should be mixed up with other cars than the FL-era cars, that would mean that the posts about other MoPars would be lost and scattered in for many other MoPar enthusiasts a "black hole".

Better then that the Cuda, Charger and other great Mopar owners posts in their appropriate forums so that their fellow owners can get the information where they suppose it could be found.

I'm not that interested of the muscle car era, but if I would have been I would clearly go to those forums for to share and get information.

We even have problems to search and find our own posts about the FL cars sometimes - imagine if we should deal with all the other era's as well.

I now see that my response to this question may be washed under by the huge tide of popular opinion. Be that as it may, I would like to cast my strongest vote for keeping the site dedicated to the iconic forward look style of autos.

No disrespect to anyone's vehicle of choice but to me this is a forum for our era of cars. Every time I do a search for my dart for info it always pulls up the a body versions of the make. I know what forum I can come to for info on forward look cars, it'd be a disappointment to see the info here diluted down with info on other cars that already have other forums already. If I ever own an a body dart I'll join a site for that, same as a c or b body. My vote would be fowrd look only, love 62 to 65 stuff as well but this isn't the forum for it, they already exist. Imo -joe

My apologies I think I misunderstood. Still new to this site. Maybe a sub category wouldn't be bad, I thought we were talking about the forum as a whole. I'd like to see alot of stuff here that people are or have done, but honestly I could really car less about 70 s or 80s cars. It may be kinda annoying to see a bunch of diplomats or vehicles you see all the time posted here

I do remember that Chuck

I do still think the same as I said above though

A new section called "members other rides" would be cool

And as we seem to be on some moving company (or whatever) spam list, how about a movers and shakers section as well

I like the fact I can open this website and look at Mopar FL cars specifically. Like others have stated there are so many other forums, magazines, even car shows that are so full of chevy and ford stuff its hard to find Mopars. I vote for FL mopars. I don't mind the occasional photo bomb of cars in a background or foreground that are not FL but have some Fl material in there. I like rods, muscle cars, classics, and customs in general but this site is specific and I like that about it.

The local car shows here in SoCal are so full of GM and Ford stuff I get bored after 5-10 minutes because there are no FL mopars and only a handful of the 60's to early 70's if that. Very rare to see a 426 hemi powered beast So this website is the next best thing.

I've been through this on other sites and FB pages. And not just car related stuff. When you have a site that is vehicle specific, the main parts of it need to stay pure or else it will just turn into a jumble. You have to be nice about it but it's just the way to do it. I have cars from several eras, all mopars but I'll only talk about my 300F here. This has always been a great place to see FL cars and get help from other enthusiasts.

Now if we can just straighten out if a '62-3 Imperial is a FL car. I vote yes!

I agree......along with the '62 Chryslers........I know I've opened the door to a lot of objections on this one, but VE still had an influence on that final design despite the corporate interference......

I have a '58 imperial Crown and a '62 300 convertible........both great cars.......

I've said this before the forwardlook culture built into this forum is a one of, there's no other forum with this much genuine interest amongst their members.In todays world the social media has created an general outward appearance of phaeacian [big word] in most of our cultures.So to carry on the tradition I'm certainly in the forward look column

up to 66 I say...


Based on this story, I would say that this forum should be limited to 55 to 61, the years of the cars that Exner led the designs of. He can't be blamed for the 62s. Anything later isn't forward look.

"In 1956, during the design of the 1961 models, Exner suffered a heart attack. He resumed work in 1957, working on the designs for the 1962 cars. On July 25, 1957, Exner was elected the first Vice President of Styling at Chrysler. Unfortunately, a rumor that GM was reducing the size of their cars caused the President of Chrysler, Lester Lum ("Tex") Colbert, to order Exner to do the same to his 1962 design — a change Exner disagreed with, thinking it would make his cars "ugly." Exner with his associates had completed work on the second full-sized finless Plymouth since 1955, this one for 1962, described as a strikingly attractive automobile. While he was still recovering from the heart attack, the 1962 models Exner took credit for were downsized by associates. This downsizing drastically changed the cars' appearance. This reduced the cars' appeal and caused a significant drop in sales. It turned out that the Chevrolet rumor was false and consumers disliked the smaller Plymouth and Dodge cars introduced for 1962, the styling of which was bizarre compared to more sedate Ford and GM products. Needing a scapegoat, Chrysler fired Exner. He was allowed to retain a position as a consultant so he could retire with pension at age 55. He was replaced by Elwood Engel, who had been lured from Ford. Engel was highly regarded for his design of the classic 1961 Lincoln Continental.[4]"

I would say FL only,but I just picked up a 62 300 and 2 63 300s. To me those are still FL cars? Also 62 63 imperials. If I want to see A,B,E bodies I will go to those sites. I would agree with a C body section though. My 2 cents
