  71-73 Mustang Registry!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 02-03-2011, 03:00 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

OK guys! We finally got the new 71-73 Mustang Registry working!


Feel free to add your cars along with as much info as you can muster! Be sure to add photos also! Regular members can add 5 pics and VIPs can add up to 10!

VIN is a required field, but only the first 5 digits are needed. I added mine like this: 1F05Fxxxxxx

So, add your cars and lets build a huge database of 71-73 Mustangs! Any problems or questions, be sure to give me a holler!

There is also a small post in the FAQ section on how to use the Registry!

  Weekly Fun Question for 1-29-2011
Posted by: cobra3073 - 01-28-2011, 07:10 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Good Day All:

Due to an important commitment (my 11 year old son's Tae kwon Do tournament), I will not be able to post the Weekly Fun Question at 7:00 PM on tomorrow (Saturday, January 29, 2011).

Instead, I will post the question three hours earlier at approximately 4:00 P.M. (CST) on Saturday, January 29, 2011.

I am sorry for any inconvenience!


  Marti Report Forum!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-28-2011, 12:51 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

OK guys, by request...I created a new forum for you to upload and discuss your Marti Reports! Here is the link:


It is also in the top links under the DATA dropdown tab!

You can black out the last 6 Consecutive Unit Numbers in your VIN before you upload if you like. The reports can only be viewed by 7173Mustang.com members but the numbers are not needed for identification and discussion purposes. If you need help blackening them out, PM me and I'll be glad to help.

Hope you enjoy the new feature as much as Marti will enjoy the free advertising! LOL! Big Grin

  Anonymous VIP Upgrade

We just had another anonymous VIP Upgrade request!

Congratulations droptop73! Someone from the forums has hooked you up! I can't say who it was but you have been moved to the VIP Group! Big Grin

Enjoy! Cool

  Index Side Bar and Member Status Updates
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-26-2011, 07:41 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

Just added a new side bar to the index page! It has random images from the garage and also a new module that allows you to post status updates when ever you feel like it! You can change status from the index page or from your profile page.

I have a few more ideas for sided bar content but that will be for another day! Smile

  7173mustangs Cinema
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-25-2011, 06:23 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (4)

It's no big screen extravaganza, but if you feel like kicking back and watching a good flick...we got you covered! There is now a little movie camera icon in the footer bar that will take you to the 7173Mustangs Cinema! Your movie choices are limited, but I think you will enjoy them!

Click this link or the icon below to check it out! (BYOP=Bring Your Own Popcorn!)


  Region Added to Postbit
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-24-2011, 02:33 PM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I added a little plugin that allows us to add our Regions to the postbits! This might come in handy as car show season rolls around!

Just go to your USER CP button up top and select EDIT PROFILE...you'll then see a drop down named Regions. Just select your region from the list and save when done! The regions just happen to be the same as the regions in our car show forum...here is the map for reference:


There are also regions for Canada, Mexico and Europe. Hopefully, regions will turn into full blown chapters one day...so I went ahead and set them up now to test the ground work!

As always, have fun!

Magnum Car of the Month Spotlight Feature now OPEN!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-22-2011, 10:14 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (1)

Well guys, after reading all the feedback, I decided to go ahead and start the Car of the Month Spotlight Feature!

It is open to all members no matter if your car is finished in drivable condition or in restoration phase! Just start a thread in the proper forum...be sure to include lots of pics and specs on your car. We also need at least one large (high resolution) photo for use in the yearly calendar! Also include some info or history about your car...how you got it, where it came from, etc.

Once threads start appearing, other members can view them and place votes by clicking the LIKE button at the bottom of each COTM submission. The Submission that has the most votes at the end of each month will be the winner! The winner gets a portal page spot, a current COTM spot in the forum and a place in the hall of fame as well as a profile trophy!

The rest of the submissions will continue to receive votes until the next month when the winner is announced...and so on! Submissions from both the On the Road and In Restoration categories are eligible for the winners circle! It's obvious that everyone seem to enjoy all phases of the Mustang hobby!

I hate to rush things, but in order to keep this thing on track for a nice calendar next year...we need a winner by the end of this month! So get posting and then get voting! Remember...this is all for FUN! So have FUN!! If you have any questions, post them here and I will address them...


  Events Forum now has regions!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 01-09-2011, 11:17 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (6)

There has been a lot of talk in the VIP Forum about meets and cruises for the upcoming season! So I decided to create sub forums for each region to help you organize meets, shows and cruises. The forums are also for listing any upcoming events in your area. The more info we can post in the Events Forums, the better chance that we can all get out and meet some other 7173Mustang.com Members!

I've included a breakdown map of the US region and there are also regions for our International friends! If I missed any regions, give me a holler!
