Default Birth of this Forum

Since I am new to this forum, I am curious as to who started it. It looks great and very "familiar" to the big "CV" Forum. Any ideas on how to get this more active. We need more online activity and interaction with us Florida people. There must be a way to get this rolling. Perhaps make it a Corvette dating site for the singles....LOL Maybe more information about good and bad dealer encounters with sales and repairs. Who has been happy with delamination fixes? Most fun place to take your vette in Florida! Help me here...

Well, I guess I have to take the rap for starting this place.......

As for getting it moving along, well honestly right now is the peak of my busy season with my business, so there's very little time available to do much about that. All it really takes is to extend invitations to other Florida Corvette owners you come across and to think of new interesting conversation here and contribute to ones already existing. Kind of a catch-22, though. We need more people here, but need to give them a reason for sticking around. And the reason they would want to stick around is because there are already a bunch of people here having lively conversations.

The BEST advice I can give is to LET NO QUESTION GO UNANSWERED. Someone posting a question and not even getting a single reply is about the most frustrating thing for anyone to go through. It makes them feel completely ignored. So make the effort. At least acknowledge that you have read their post and have tried to think of a helpful answer.

As for the suggestion about good and bad dealer encounters, that is what the BOARD OF INQUIRY forum here is for. And for fun places, the ON THE ROAD forum was set up with exactly that in mind.

So I think the building blocks for a solid foundation are all in place. All we need to do is to get some people here willing to start putting the rest into place.

And yes, I am working on getting some business cards made up and maybe some one page flyers to be handed out at Corvette shows and such. I would like to take out some ads in some of the Corvette magazines, but honestly, that takes more $$ then I am likely willing to throw around right now. So if you can think of someone who might like to be a sponsoring advertiser here, drag them on over. If I have the $$ coming in, then I can pump it right back into this site.

And thanks for your thoughts. And if you don't mind, I may move this to the Feedback forum where I think it would be more appropriate and likely to get more feedback from other members.

Oh well, back to the salt mines..............

The way to get this rolling is for you to post more

I'll be going to a car show tonight and two all Corvette shows in the next month. Of course I'll be mentioning it to everyone I talk to. The business cards would be great Rich. I can chip in a few bucks if you like. Through PayPal maybe? I honestly wish I was more creative so I could come up with some ideas for a logo.

And you certainly don't have to tell me to post more

Well I have a member here working on a card design, but it seems he is kind of busy with other stuff. He is actually helping me out with this, so I can't really flog him too harshly............

Well I do appreciate the offer, but honestly I just don't see this site getting the traffic to be worth much to anyone yet. I just feel I am not offering enough in return to even think of taking your money......

Heck it looks like many of the people who have already registered here aren't even visiting regularly any longer..... Sort of puts a damper on my enthusiasm to try to get more sponsors. They just aren't going to be seeing the numbers to make it worthwhile to them.

All in due time, I guess.

September 2nd is Corvettes on the Pier in St. Petersburg and September 16th is a show at Dimmitt Chevrolet. I know at the Dimmitt show there will be lots of vendors. They will have Valve Cover races and what they call a "muffler rapping contest", which is just loudest exhaust at WOT.

Both flyers can be found above in the Calendar section. Hurry if you want to actually be in the show, you have to register soon. Hope to see you at both.

Z06Rocket also made me aware of a show at Old Town in Kissimmee the first weekend in October called VetteFest. Not much info on that one, but you can Google it.

I went to a local (Well 50-60 miles away for me) show tonight and took many, many pictures. When I have some time I'll post some of 'em up. Here's a teaser. '63 Stingray, '69 Yenko Camaro, a chopped Purple '55 Chevy and numerous other cars. Some really cool drag cars. I can't remember if it is the biggest weekly show in the county or state. During the better months, they can have up to 500 cars there!
