You can get snapshots of the site at various times via the Internet Archive. Find a subforum index, and you'll be able to look at thread views.

It's up there in terms of replies, that's for sure. Still, I'd be happy if it didn't exist here. May happen yet!

There's no doubt general interest in the site's core topic is declining, going by visitor stats. It's been the trend for years. Last month, our Mirage forum beat EcoModder in terms of posts & general traffic for the first time ever. Happily, there's no AGW thread over there!
The problem now is all the choices.
Want an electric? You can get an electric if you want one, want a plug in hybrid sure there's like a half dozen now and they're cheap. Lots of regular hybrids.
For decades we had 2 choices, gas or diesel and maybe a manual transmission option.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
