Nope, you're just the only one taking the time to say anything about it.
Mike Focke told me that we can report spam by clicking on the red and white triangle button that looks like a yield sign, "Report Post".

A couple of sites I am an admin for are being hit as well. Several have had some serious virus and phishing attachments.

Mod's - why the 60-sec rule between submitting SPAM reports?

I encourage you to write to the owner. I can only delete messages, not members. Clearly, the spam filter is NOT working.

How do we contact the owner? You need the power to delete MEMBERS.

Never knew so much oil could collect. Couple of interesting things about the car...she had a different intake tube then what was shown for 98's in the manual. Only had one "extraneous" tube and not the big "L" tube that goes under the throttle body. Also learned a lesson about disconnecting the power at the battery. There is a starter solenoid right under the throttle body! That was a close one.

I also fabricated some really nice grill screens to keep debris from getting into the radiators. Boy those were clogged (almost 60%). Now I am working on installing the new seats as I just machined out the brackets for the seats and got the passenger installed tonight. What a nice change! I will more then likely be selling the stock seats early in the spring.
