  Donations for the 7173 Wikipedia!
Posted by: rocketfoot - Yesterday, 03:18 PM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I just wanted to post a standing THANK YOU to everyone that has made a donation from the new 7173 Wikipedia page!  It runs on a different system than the forums and all donations are pretty much anonymous so I just wanted to extend a big thanks to everyone that uses the Wiki and enjoys it enough to send a few bucks our way.  All donations absolutely go towards the cost of hosting, bandwidth, disc space, server fees, etc!  Every little bit helps!

I also greatly appreciate all the VIP donations and upgrades!  Again, every dollar donated is greatly appreciated!  It is truly humbling to have a community that appreciates the websites enough to donate and help lower the operating costs!  You guys are awesome!!

Thanks again!!


PS...we are still looking for anyone that would like to help add content and edit the Wiki!  It is a simple Wordpress site so no coding skills are needed!  Just like blogging!

  Mustang Tribar Logo Trophies!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 02-20-2020, 08:51 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (28)

Howdy folks!  I am commissioning a one of a kind, Mustang Tribar Logo Trophy to sell to forum members as a FUN Raiser for the website! 

The trophy will be about 12" tall and created from multi layered, plasma cut metal.  The trophy is then finished in full color, translucent paint that looks absolutely stunning!

I think they would look great on a shelf or desk!  They would also be the perfect addition to your model car collection as it would fit in most any curio or display case!

I am trying to keep them affordable but keep in mind that each trophy is hand made and hand painted!  No 2 are exactly the same!

Price will be $125.00 shipped to your door!  (The forum will make approx $25 per unit to help in the cost of operation!)

Here is a photo of the design, but the finished product will have a base plate to make it free standing.

We need 10 pre-sales in order to get them shipped so if you are interested, hit the subscription page and buy one now!

  Update to the Forum Rules
Posted by: rocketfoot - 12-10-2019, 06:26 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Just a quick addition to the Rules Page...

It has kinda been an unwritten rule for years that when you place a classified ad, your item(s) must be priced.  We have now added this rule to the official forum rules so that everyone knows and it is unarguable.  We simply do not want to turn the classifieds into a ebay type auction site!  If you place a classified ad, make sure your item is priced.  Also, no business ads...for fairness and respect of our supporting forum vendors, anyone wishing to list items for their business must purchase vendor status to do so.  Prices are fair and spots are limited!  PM me if you need more info.

Thanks everyone!

PS...One a separate note, when you receive a PM notification email in your email inbox, be sure to login to the forum and go to your private messages to reply!  When you reply to the actual email notification, it sends to the forum's email address!  Your intended recipient does not receive the reply!

  The NEW 71-73 Wikipedia
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-18-2019, 05:10 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (23)

I have been working on a new 71-73 Wikipedia to replace our aging data pages and I gotta say...it is looking GOOD!!

I do need some help!  I have the site laid out and some content populated but I need some better content from you Mustang experts!!  I'd love to see a few members take on a section or two and help write some great content to fill the pages.  We, of course, want it to be factual and correct info.  I have been stuffing whatever I can find into he pages but I need some help!

The new Wiki also includes a 71-73 Registry that automatically populates a spreadsheet after you fill out the registry form!  It is going to be a cool site and hopefully it can be the definitive 71-73 Mustang information archive! 

Take a look and see if you can provide some content for me to copy and paste into the pages!  There are still many sections that need filler including Engine sections, Convertibles, Sportsroofs, Sprints, T5's and much more!  I know we have some experts around here and I know we can get this done!!


  2020 Calendar Photo Request!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-15-2019, 03:54 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (42)

It's that time once again!  Time for me to create a spectacular calendar that features the best Mustang photos from the pages of 7173Mustangs.com!

So, if you had the opportunity to take some awesome photos over the summer, post them up and I'll see if I can use them!  I can't guarantee that I can use every pic posted but I try!!

I'll use the images to make a sweet 2020 calendar and then offer it to the membership for sale.  All proceeds benefit forum operation costs so it is a great way to get a cool calendar for your home or office while supporting your favorite Mustang website!!  WIN-WIN!!

So lets get those photos coming!  I need them to be as large and high resolution as possible.  If can't get large pics to upload, email them to me at: rocketfoot@7173mustangs.com

Lets keep the calendar fresh too!  If we used your photo last year, submit a new photo!

I have been saving up hot rod pinup girl pics all year long too so there will be an amazing (but tasteful) girly calendar this year too!  You have to be a VIp member to purchase it however!  So if you are not a VIP, be sure to check out our VIP packages here!

  User Map is back!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-14-2019, 04:56 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (7)

I got the user map working on the forums again!  It's always fun while it lasts, but Google has changed their API so many times that it breaks the forum plugin!  This version is using a different map ap so maybe it will last longer! 

If you want to try it out, you can go to your USER CP, scroll down and click on USER MAP on the left side.  The map will come up and you can just grab the marker and drop it in your neighborhood!  After you are happy with the marker placement, go to the bottom of the map and click the check box for confirmation and the update button will appear.  Click UPDATE and you are all done!  You can visit the map from the FUN STUFF tab up above or from the user map link on the placement map in your user cp.

Like I said...no guarantees on how long he map will last but it is pretty fun while it lasts! 

For safety and security...I don't advise placing your marker exactly on your house!  Just put it somewhere in your home town!

Have fun and let me know if you have any questions or problems!
