    David,

    Can this (or is it already) be attached to the initial Forum signup page with a "check box" that has to be marked to complete the registration?

    sturgus83, create a new thread in this forum and introduce yourself. I'm sure there are local builders in your are who would either stop by or arrange to meet somewhere to "talk shop".

    If you are interested in speaking with me personally, let me know and I'll send my cell # in a PM (private message).

    Here's a bump for the rejected. If I sent you a registration rejection email, I think the maybe you aren't a spam bot, but just didn't read the instructions on the registration form. Spam bot registrations don't get rejection emails, they just get rejected.

    FYI

    Note: "looking to purchase", by itself, and from outside the us especially, will get rejected. Again, if you GET a rejection, it means I think you might be human. Maybe. Register again, and please read the directions...

    LOTS of generic answers today!

    From the FIRST post:
    Re: Registering for the forum...
    All new registrations are moderated before you can post your first post. This may add a delay between registering and being able to post.
    The registration process includes Biography as a required field which has to be filled with something relating to why you are on this site.

    The registration form states:
    Fill in a few details about yourself, and specifically, why you are signing up for this forum. This field is required, and is used to help verify you are not a spammer. Don't put gibberish or generic answers in this field, as it will be viewed by the membership moderator after signup. If the moderator can't tie this answer to why you have signed up for this site, your membership request will be denied, and you will have to re-register!

    Let me reiterate: If you register for the site and don't put something related to this site in the Bio field your registration will be rejected. Small, generic answers like "New to site", "Car Lover", "Mechanic" will get you rejected. If you get a rejection email or no response from the site within 48 hrs after trying to register then click this Contact Us link to get in touch and we'll get you registered.

    "retired" isn't a sufficient BIO answer...

    Huh... You'd think that Adele would be the last one to be interested in building a car.

    Showing my age but I thought of Lionel Richie with hello instead of Adele.

    But seriously,
    Dave,
    Thanks for all that you do to keep the forum working and free of trolls, I can't wait to see how a Wookie fits in the 33 hot rod truck.

    changing my profile

    Thanks for info. Not sure how many posts I have done so far but I'm looking forward to changing "looking for a Cobra" to "HAVING a Cobra!" Yahoooo!

    I returned from Wareham last night after placing my order in person with Dan. I have a sales order number if that helps. I have a projected completion date of 12/23. I would love to start a build thread. I only have 7 posts I believe so far. Let me know if I can proceed or continue posting. I have pm’ed quite a bit but nor too many general postings.

    Thank you for maintaining this forum. I can’t imagine the work involved.

    David,

    A newbie and completely understand the restrictions. Have seen something similar on a couple Yamaha jet boat forums.

    I've been trolling around looking at posts over the past couple months and have learned so much. Thank you to all for sharing and the great information.

    So looking forward to visiting FFR next month and the build school in March.

    Steve, thanks and welcome to the madness. You'll have a great time at the school. Let me know if you want to use the gallery or update your profile before you reach 20 posts. As a matter of fact don't bother. Upgraded!

    Here's a registration tip:

    Don't fill out the bio telling me how stupid it is to have to fill out a bio field!

    OK, new guy opinion. No problem. It isn't about the money. No one who is trying to decide on the options in a 30K build kit should balk at a one dollar fee. On the other hand sometimes my paypal account doesn't work right so please don't make it the only way for me to prove I am not a Cylon (If you ***** us, do we not bleed?).

    I did see where you banned a guy for two days for posting a for sale item in the 'wanted' section. I have noticed regional confusion over this in some newspapers. Some papers post 'want to sell' items under 'wanted.'

    Also, I am not much of a blogger so I am struggling a bit with the site. I have some really basic questions that I am sure have been asked hundreds of times but I cannot locate what I am seeking. This would be simple questions like, "Which engine and why?" I am trying to avoid obvious redundancy so I will keep looking before asking my series of newbie questions.

    Thanks for this site!

    Seriously? You block Shakespeare? The Merchant of Venice? Now I am nervous about the rules!

    I'll block anyone, if they don't follow directons. Like saying you "Live under Caleb's outhouse". I mean what is that?



    PS if you need any help just send me a PM. If you need a LOT of help, include your phone number.

    Maybe if I'd spent some time here and carefully read the rules, I wouldn't have sent a message about permissions!

    Greeting FFR fanatics! My very first post and I want to say Hi! I do not own a FFR ride (Yet) I am in search though. but straight to the point, I have always drooled over Billy Gibbon's (ZZ Top) 33 Ford Eliminator! So after a recent re-evaluation of my life's journey, a 33 Ford has been on the list. After searching, I found that FFR is the route I want to go. Sure I can build the entire car from the ground up, but i need to give my hands a break and just cruise. So, anyone out there considering in making the drastic decision to hand their pride and joy, or nearly an unfinished project, over to an enthusiast, please reach out. Looking forward to meeting you all here in the forum. Dave

    Hello FFR! After years of keeping vehicles running and minor upgrades (<20 hour projects), I've gotten the bug to build new. The idea of an entirely clean workspace being filled with new and maybe donor parts is nice to consider. I have been reading forum posts and watching members' build videos and it was time to join in. Thanks in advance for advice, stories and pictures already shared here. I'll forward to the next steps...Kevin
