I didn't realize that was what you meant when you posted this.

If you aren't interested in continuing it maybe the content can be transferred to a page on ecomodder like an archive? I don't know much about websites so I don't know how feasable that is.

I'll need to call up basjoos. I'd be interested in the site remaining up, and I'm happy to take over management of it.

I made the site for Mike. It's on our server.

Back in the good ol' days before Google ruined everything, it even used to generate a small amount of ad income for him, but those days are gone.

Happy to continue hosting it, or handing it off to you to do with whatever you wish. Send me a PM once you've had some proper sleep.

I want you to know you've caused an outbreak of the FE bug in me. Now I keep thinking about mods I could do on my car and how I would build them.

I have two Insights, three Metros, two Civic Wagons, one Prius, and the CRXFi. But none are museum quality. Only one currently runs and drives.

I think that qualifies.


No one would expect an EcoModder museum to be museum quality.
