Hey gang. Most of you probably don't even remember me. Which is probably best for you and me. I had some time to kill this morning so I thought i'd come check in. This was such a great community and I made a lot of friends and some I still am in contact with.

here was my celica smile.gif




Now I have a g35

Hi, you won't know me but it's nice of you to drop in and say hello to everyone.
BlackCelicaGT94
Is it always so dead in here? When i was active there were responses all the time and the off topic page would have a page full of responses from that day. Hmm maybe kids these days just have too much social media to keep up on. Back in my day we only have 6gc.net and Myspace smile.gif
SwissFerdi
It's been getting dead-er. I remember you, hello.
playr158
Haha, I remember you tongue.gif

what up Natalie
richee3
Yeah, it's usually this dead these days. frown.gif
BlackCelicaGT94
Oh yay some responses smile.gif

Glad there's some people alive around here. Is Coomer apart of this anymore? I ran into him randomly about 3 years ago when he was riding his bike down a hill in seattle. well I didn't literally run into him. I was crossing the street and recognized him.
Rusty
I vaguely remember your posts

Yea he's still around, he's quite into his bikes now. I managed to get in connect with him recently to come back and look into site updates and issues

Hi
Never met you before but glad your back lol
RabidTRD
I'm trying to make it more active by passing the word, but people just aren't as into their 6g's around me as I'd like. Met a new GT owner today at work though... Maybe he will get on here...

Anyway, hello.

Trying to bring excitement to an almost 20 year old economic box is a tough thing to do! Pretty much just expect a small dedicated community and very little growth from now on.

One of the celicas I admired back in the day. Hope all is well!

Unless it is a Honduh anyway.

It's just part of it, the Celica is "just a car" for most that own them. Then again the type of "enthusiasts" that own the other econo-boxes we wouldn't want around here anyway. So, damned if you do damned if you don't.
njccmd2002
It's possible, I see excitement in 37 year old nostalgics doing crazy swaps. It's all about demographics, unfortunately....

Welcome back, both of you.

How are you liking the G35?

I am in love with it. It's truly my realistic dream car. However, my celica is my true love. Wish I still had the celica but all good things must come to an end.

It seems pretty common that after having a celica people move on to a 350z or g35.
richee3
I love my Z. Unfortunately I'm selling it and moving on. Lucky enough to keep the Celica. The Z's/G's are some great cars, definitely the most fun I've had behind the wheel.
Box
I've thought about the 350/370Z or G35/37, but I can't be a trend follower so I'll have to choose something else now. tongue.gif

hahah just coincidental timing. Haven't touched the Celica since I moved to Australia and I sold the Z, so not a whole lot of "car enthusiast" in me right now!

yea dude where've you been? hows that 3vz turbo swap going?

I digress. sup Nat? glad to see some of the OG's are back.
Car looks good. Ironically, I'm in the market for a g37xS
BlackCelicaGT94
It's not only here that seems to be dead. THe whole scene has died down a lot since the early 2000's. No one even gives my car a second glance now and im sure if I had my celica it would be called rice now days even though it was pretty clean.

I now find myself saying "when i was your age...." to kids when they talk to me about the car scene. lol. i feel old!
SwissFerdi
Infiniti are plenty though...you may say their number is almost...infinite? At least where I live. The industry isn't as focused on visuals anymore, it's all "hoon factor."

Hello, its very quiet around here now. I pop in once and while to see whats going on, lots of people have moved on. I see coomers old car running around every so often (no idea who owns it but someone near me does) needs some work, Mine is long gone. I also have a G35 now, can't blame celica people going that route there great cars. I still have the scoobs too.
njccmd2002
so coomers old car is still alive, thats great.. snap a pic...
creis
Poor quality, but.

Its the nature. Its everywhere. Forums are dying on favor of social media. I gave up on several forums. I dont post anymore. Forums are just basically archives now
Box
I hate social media. Though I can somewhat understand it over forums as it's convenient if you're into social media already anyway, and it's probably easier to get local groups together as well. I don't think forums will die out completely as there're a lot of things it'd be difficult or inconvenient trying to use some form of social media layout. I think the biggest issue, and with car forums dedicated to older models specifically, is that everything has already been done a million times. Then when someone new posts asking about whatever the few still around are like "USE SEARCH BAR" or "GOOGLE IT".
richee3
We'll see the forum pick back up a little in 2019 when GT4's start coming into the States. Until then, it's just us. smile.gif
mkernz22
I always refer people to search the forum(s) or google whenever they ask about something on Facebook and it's already been done.
Most say "I can't find anything" then it takes me a 1 minute to search this or alltrac.net and find what they need. So lazy.

that's exactly the problem. not us telling people to use the search or google. but people blatantly being ignorant and just asking simple questions that with 2 seconds they can find themselves. 6gc on facebook isn't too bad but other pages are filled with "which ebay intake should i buy?" everyday.

same here. i still find it funny that everyone's excuse is always, "I can't figure out how to use the forums, so that's why I ask on facebook." it's not that hard. everything's sectioned off into it's rightful place. exterior, interior, turbo, na etc. hahaha.
Box
Meh, it's not like we don't have anything else to do around here. laugh.gif

Also wouldn't there be a new forum for said new GT-Four? tongue.gif

I believe he was referring to when the ST205 becomes legal to import in the US.
Box
Ohhh yeah, misread him after going without sleep. For some reason I put new and possibly into his sentence, then again I looked through the SFR topic right before and that could be why.
