  7173 Mustangs Garage Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 09-10-2010, 10:47 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

Hey guys! I'm excited to announce the addition of a Garage Forum to our site! I'm still working on a few minor issues with layout and stuff, but it is ready for some testers to give it a try! Please post any questions or comments in this thread so I can track them.

The link is in the nav bar above or here:

http://www.7173mustangs.com/forum-garage

Just a few notes...each member's garage will hold 5 images (1 cover image and 4 others) The cover image is required. It will also allow up to 4 optional modification images such as detail shots of your wheels, interior or whatever.

All uploaded garage images must be 1024x768 or less in size (up to 3mb in file size)
You can also attach or hotlink more photos in the body of the vehicle description if you like. These images and be almost anysize and will resize automatically to fit the forum margins.

When creating a new garage thread, please include the year and trim level of your car to help with searching...example: 1972 Mustang Mach 1 or 1973 Mustang Convertible, etc.

I hope you guys enjoy the new garage!

I'm not the greatest artist, but I made a little 7173mustangs.com flyer that one could print out and display at a car show or cruise! It's in pdf format and prints nicely on a color printer! Might also make a nice drop flyer for when you see another 71-73 Mustang at a show!

As most have already seen, 72HCODE is a walking encyclopedia of 71-73 info! So we have added him to the 7173Mustangs Staff as a Super Mod/Technical Advisor! Just a little way to help thank him for the priceless information that he has been supplying to our forum pages! Cool


  Racing Forum Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 08-16-2010, 02:51 PM - Forum: Site News - Replies (3)

By request, I added a new forum under Odds and Ends called "Racing!" You can discuss drag racing adventures, car set up and 1/4 mile times. Please avoid street racing stories. We all know modern street racing is illegal and dangerous. We don't need that in the forums. The only exception would be the stories I hear at every car show about street racing in the 50's and 60's. I think the statutory limit has expired on those stories so feel free to tell an old tale or two!! Big Grin Times were just different back then, it was part of the car guy culture!

Have fun and stay safe!


  New Default Skin and Chat Added!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 08-14-2010, 07:41 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (6)

This is just an official announcement that a new skin and a chat room have been added to the forums!

If you would like to continue using the old skin, it is still available in he theme chooser at the bottom right of any page. Just select "Simple Blue" and click Change.

The Chat button is located in the page links at the top of the board.

Hope everyone enjoys the new additions!


  The 7173 Wiki is live!
Posted by: rocketfoot - 07-30-2010, 06:47 AM - Forum: Site News - Replies (7)

I just got done adding an extensive mod that will allow us to start building an online Wikipedia style encyclopedia of information and knowledge on 71-73 Mustangs! You can easily create articles and tutorials on stuff such as how to install a dash pad, how to do remove an engine or even how to reskin a body panel. You can also add attachments such as PDF files or images so you can upload old brochures and service literature, etc...anything that you think may be helpful to someone down the road.

The code is fresh so let me know if you encounter any problems. I hope you enjoy the new Wiki and I hope it grows into a great resource full of 71-73 knowledge!

  Forum Stats
Posted by: rocketfoot - 07-24-2010, 09:14 AM - Forum: Site News - No Replies

I just wanted to point out that I added a cool new gizmo to the bottom of the forum index...it shows a bunch of different forum stats such as most viewed topic and threads with the most replies. Nothing major, but it may come in handy someday! I also added a similar version to the home portal page.

Enjoy!
