Anyone use CarDomain?

This came up on another forum I frequent. Just wondering if anyone here uses cardomain for their ecomodded (not performance modded) cars? It might be a good way to get word out about ecomodding.

I put up a page for the ForkenSwift at one point. But, like the EV Album entry, I tend to forget about it.

I don't think I've ever entered a car there, but once upon a time I talked to the owner (I think it was) about doing something with EM. If there is interest I might be able to revive that and see if we can could get a section for ecomodding or something.

I have one, but I haven't put my ecomodder stuff on there. Just aesthetic mods.

Yeah, that was kind of my point. Nothing saying we can't do a small scale invasion though.

Funny you should use those terms - because when gas prices were at record highs last summer, EcoModder was regularly "invaded" by members of traditional "performance"-oriented communities who wanted to make fun of the nerds.

Umm....they were making fun of EcoMods when gas was at its peak? Not too bright!

Maybe they were actually looking for FE but just didn't want to admit it...
