A few years back, whilst taking part in oldschool.co.nz forums, one of the member’s managed to stumble across a UK based forum, at that stage both forums were still in relative infancy, from then they have both grown massive amounts, retro-rides more so, likely due to the larger population base that the UK has to offer vs. NZ.
I think the main reason why RR is so popular and why it has done so well is that for the most part it (thanks entirely to it’s dedicated founder and current moderating staff) has managed to avoid being too into any particular scene and as such always has a diverse range of member’s cars to show, another key point is that it’s always about the cars. There’s no off-topic, there’s no deviation, you’re there to talk and to read about cars.
I’ve quickly jumped onto their Project Sub-forum, to share with you, some of the cars, that contribute to making RR the fantastic place that it is…
Click the photo on each one to be taken to the project thread where you can see and read more about them;
Ok, now I could really go on forever, listing a myriad of absolutely fantastic rides that grace the pages of the wonder that is retro-rides.org I shall however limit myself. With one more, no, actually make that two more…
Alright, so I lied…
I could wander the project threads for days on end… have another few that caught my eye;
Obviously, these are just project threads, I’ve not even touched upon the jovial nature of the General Car Chat area, which is another reason why the forum is so fantastic, lots of friendly people, helping others out when and where possible. Just a fantastic place to visit and to frequent. I would urge you, if you’ve not been there, go there now, join up, join in. You’ll not regret it.
They’ve expanded beyond mere internet status and have a national gathering of immense proportions as well as regional meetings, the only way is up and good on those involved for putting in the hard yards.
So before I end this blog entry, I would personally like to say thank-you HoTWire and team for providing such a fantastic resource and internet mainstay. Props to you chaps.
OK, screw it… three more;
