Upgraded Forum Software

Recommended Posts

Well as you may of noticed there are a LOT of things different around these parts :lol: I upgraded our forum software to the most recent version of Invision Power Board. This is the same brand we were using before but it's well about 5 years newer :lol:

It has a lot of neat new features that you will find all over. Posting is still the same but you have a nice new WYSIWYG editor, alternatively if you like BBcode you can still use that as well. There are millions upon millions of new features and an upgraded backend to make us run more smoother!

Plus an extensive add-on department, there are a LOT of add-ons coming and some already installed like the new Point system! In which, each time you post now you will be rewarded with some points that you can use in a forum store that will allow you to do things plus more events and things to use them in the future!

Overall this is my Christmas gift to all you guys and myself (it cost quite a bit of change but I won't go there lol). So... Look around, it will take some getting used to but overall we are in for an overhaul on how we function and will be able to do so much more!

LOVING the new quick reply setup. Everybody's avatar was wiped, but our sigs survived thankfully.

I like how it's easier to find the new posts as well, it feels more like a "forum" with this setup. Kudos on the setup! Black with red is very easy on the eyes.

So wait, about the money feature...it gets spent every time you change your profile? Like changing your avatar for example?

Nope, unless you publish things via the share button it won't BUT there are status updates that you can sync between your FP profile and your FB profile ;)

      Hello fellow Pontiac enthusiasts,
      I am here to seek guidance and counsel. I recently had my front suspension break on me. More specifically, the lower shock mount broke free from the front passenger lower A-arm (I think it's the A-arm). Where the lower shock mount is supposed to bolt on, I no longer have those two holes. The metal broke right there, and I do not have one of those holes for the shock to mount to. 
      So here is my conundrum. I am thinking about upgrading my suspension, but I am not sure what to do first or where to begin looking. Currently, I am pretty sure I have the original setup--suspension, drum brakes, 14" PMD 5-star rims/tires. I would like to do any upgrading on somewhat of a budget, as my wife told me "You don't HAVE any money to do this!" But we will see....
      I have read somewhere before that some people have swapped in a Corvette suspension/brake/hub setup. Is that even possible? If so, how easy is that? If not a Corvette setup, what would be a direct swap? I am looking for something that is relatively easy to do, as well as relatively easy on the bank account. (see above WIFE comment). 
      So that all are aware of what car I currently have.... I own a 1967 Pontiac Tempest Custom 4-door hardtop. It has a relatively new Pontiac 400ci V8, and a rebuilt TH350 transmission. The engine has been completely redone, as well. Bored out, all new internals, heads redone, it is NICE!!! The rest of the car, however, is mostly original. And of course, those are the parts I have to work on or fix up. Case in point, the suspension issue of which I am now typing about here on ForeverPontiac. I will soon be adding a few photos of my car. But for now, I simply ask for HELP!
      I welcome information from any and all folks willing to dole out the advice. In advance, THANK YOU.
      Your Pal,
      EZ_SLEAZY
