Posted by: rocketfoot - 03-08-2019, 05:48 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (11)

With help from another anonymous donor, we are able to upgrade yet another member to VIP Status!!  These members are sometimes hand picked by the donor, nominated by the staff or just randomly selected from active members...the thing about being anonymous is that you never know!!  But we do know is that this time it is rocket366's time ti be selected for the VIP Upgrade!!

Congratulations, rocket366!!

We hope you enjoy your new VIP status and the extra perks it carries!  You know have extra photo upload space and more room in your inbox for stored PM's plus all access pass to the VIP Lounge and the infamous Mustang Girls Thread, LOL!! 

Remember folks...all donations are greatly appreciated and they really do help keep us up and running!  There is cheap hosting out there but with the help of these donations and supporting members and vendors...we are able to keep top notch hosting that you should notice!  Our page load speeds and uptime are second to none!   Cool ...but anyway, just be sure to give some big thanks to our anonymous donors and other site supporters for helping to make this all happen!!

  Another Anonymous VIP Upgrade!!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 03-07-2019, 08:21 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (8)

Through the generosity of one of our valued site supporters, we received another anonymous donation for VIP upgrade in the name of one regular member:

scgamecock was chosen by the donor!

Congratulations!!  We hope you enjoy the extra photo upload space and extra PM storage space as well as the all access pass to the VIP Lounge!!  Also, a HUGE thank you to the donor for making this upgrade happen!  These donations really do help keep the forum running smooth and safe!  Costs are always rising on stuff like hosting fees, domain fees and off site back ups!  It is really awesome to have such a supportive group to help take the sting out of the monthly fees!

Don't forget...if you would like VIP status, it's just a small donation little as $25 gets you lifetime VIP status!

VIP upgrades make great gifts for other members too!!

  2019 Calendar Photo Request!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 11-07-2018, 10:21 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (52)

Ok guys, it is that time of the year...time for the annual Photo Calendar...but we need photos! 

If you would like to have your car appear in our 2019 calendar, please post your best photos below!  Try to post the originals or the largest file size that you can...this makes them turn out much better when the calendar is printed.

If you have any troubles posting photos, PM me and I'll reply with an email address to send them to.

Be sure to include your forum username, location, model and year with the photos!  For example:

RocketFoot - Latrobe, PA - 1971 Mach 1

The calendars are sold as a fund raiser to help keep the forums up and running so the we appreciate every aspect of the calendar sales from the generous photo submissions to the actual purchase of the calendars! 

I am also going to put together an amazing (but very tasteful) Pinup Girl calendar!!  More details on that to come!  I don't have enough photos for an all Mustang Babe calendar but I am sure the photos that I have collected will not disappoint!

So, lets see what you have...remember, the best and biggest file size photos that you have!  Post them up!  I'll try to use them all in the calendar but the final decision on content will be based on what photos work best, resolution, etc...

  2 New VIPs!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-24-2018, 05:06 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (5)

As you know, you can occasionally see 'Pay it Forward' posts around the forums where someone has an item listed for free but the recipient is expected to basically do something nice for the 'next guy' in return for receiving the free item.  Sometimes they give something of their own away or in some cases they make a donation to the forums!  Over the weekend we had a donation in the form of 2 VIP Memberships come through from TheRktmn!  This was a result of Goodnigh sending him an item and requesting a forum donation.  TheRktmn stepped up and paid it forward with a VIP Membership for Stanglover AND Not A T5!! 

This is what really makes this forum a great guys are helpful and generous in supporting and encouraging the Mustang Hobby! 

As always, I thank you for the donations and I am humbled by the show of support that happens o often around here!  You guys make the forums great...the forum is just the place where the magic really happens!!

So again...a BIG THANK YOU to Goodnigh and TheRktmn for making this happen and Congratulations Stanglover and Not A T5 on your newfound VIP Status!  (First round of drinks in the VIP Lounge is on the new guys!!)   Big Grin

BIG thanks to Don (OMS) and Ohio Mustang Supply for continuing their support of the forums as a valued 7173 vendor for another 2 years!!  Ohio Mustang Supply has been a vendor with us since the beginning...there are not many other Mustang parts vendors out there that are as committed to the Mustang restoration hobby and especially the 71-73 segment as OMS is!  If you need parts for your matter what year, be sure to give Don and Ohio Mustang a try!

As always, be sure to thank OMS for their continued support of the forum and please give them a chance to earn your business!  That goes for all of our trusted forum vendors!  We like to support the businesses that support the site!  Let them know you appreciate the support as well!

  Upgrade to VIP Status!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 05-14-2018, 11:27 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (2)

Hi folks, I just wanted to post a semi annual reminder to all new members that we do accept donations in the form of forum VIP status upgrades for your account!  VIP accounts enjoy extra inbox room for private message storage as well as extra upload space for photos and files!  VIPs also get access to the VIP forum where the infamous Mustang Babe thread resides!  You can also request a custom signature for your profile for free!  You get all this for just $25 and it is for reoccurring fees ever!

We also have VIP Site Supporter ($100) and VIP Benefactor ($200) levels that add even more storage and upload space (Benefactor status is UNLIMITED!!)  All these VIP levels also give you a cool custom profile badge that shows on every post and lets your peers know that you are serious about the Mustang hobby and that you help support the forums!

All proceeds from VIP upgrades go to helps cover the costs of domain fees, server hosting, remote forum backups and constant security improvements!  Every penny donated is very much appreciated!!

VIP upgrades also make a great gift to send to another forum member that helped you out or made you laugh!  It can even be anonymous if you wish!

Just to be clear, we appreciate every donation but 7173Mustangs is not a pay site and never will be!  Every one has access to the regular forums, tech info, Mustang data and all the other features no matter what level your account is.  VIP levels are just our way of thanking those that wish to help support the site. 

So, if you are ready to step up and help support your super awesome, most favorite website on the here:
