While I'm not sure I'm going to update the site anytime soon, I keep it alive as a resource and as a form of entertainment for car geeks. I did not keep it around as a way for spammers to sell bootleg Viagra (and every other drug known to man), website designs, single women, single men, single dogs & cats, car insurance, used trucks, new trucks, used cars, new cars, guns(!!), car hauling, religions (Jesus may save, but unless you can show me a picture of him doing it while driving an old Opel, he has no place here ;-) ) , and hundreds of other dubious (at best) products and services.
Eliminating just the spam was a monumental task. After awhile I realized it was just easier to eliminate all the comments. Many of the comments from "real" JACG readers were great and it was sad to see them go, but I had to do it.
This post is to let everyone who commented (legitimately) on the posts know how much I appreciated them. Taking them down was nothing personal and not an easy decision. Thanks for all the great input!
PS - The last post was about a Honda I inherited. That, thankfully, left my driveway in January 2013. The new ride is a 1997 Saab 900 'vert. 5 speed. Non-turbo. Pretty immaculate. 106k on it when I bought it, 114K on it now.
