As someone who spent most of the late 1960s and early 1970s working on the only old cars I could afford, I recognise the value of affordable repairs.
Back in the day, cars shared a lot of parts and those parts were readily available, many of them from independent third-party sources at relatively low cost.
Need a set of points? No worries. New spark plugs? Piece of cake.
Even a generator or starter-motor were the sort of things you could buy from any number of car-parts manufacturers or, if that failed, you could grab a second hand unit for a song from the local wrecker's yard.
Well those days are well and truly coming to an end I'm afraid.
Damn, why is it so hard to keep any reliable forum capability going these days?
I'll be working to get the forums up again but it seems that it might not be a simple task. The hosting company has obviously changed something but now it's up to me to try and get PHPBB working with their new configuration :-/
