    Lightbulb Found Our Own Road

    So, a couple of us noticed that there might be a little more room on the Interwebs for a site devoted to enthusiasm for a broader spectrum of cars and motion.

    Got an interesting stable of cars to show off? How about a dream stable of vehicles you'd like to own before your dirt nap? Take an interesting drive and want to share?

    Then, take our site out for a test drive.

    To sum it up:

    For cars, we're less marque exclusive than here.

    For adventures, we're less, um, rabid than someplace like expedition portal (and much more poor, too).

    For rules, there are no rules, but if you break them, you get banned.

    Anyhow, check us out here:

    www.foundourownroad.com

    Enjoy!

    Good luck with the new forum. I like the clean look. Was this set up by mostly (former) Saablink members?

    Yes - started by saablink admins. We do not like ads, and twitter bugs. We like cars and having a good time. We also like trucks, bikes and anything that moves. lol Sometimes just beer or whiskey - so we'll cover it all. Feel free to stop by!

    Ads can be a positive enhancement if they provide value for the members/visitors, are not intrusive and advertising proceeds go to site improvement and hosting. Those are the only reasons we have a few here on our site.

    A few are acceptible is palced properly - SW is good with this as was Saablink - but we suspect big changes coming soon to the later site. I do not believe SW will go that was as you share the same thoughts and feelings about them as we do.

    Keep up the good work!

    Is the site broken or taken down? I have been getting server error messages in the last few days.

    The website encountered an error while retrieving http://www.foundourownroad.com/. It may be down for maintenance or configured incorrectly.

    I don't even get that. I just see a blank page.

    Site is non-profit and run on free time when available. When glitches occur - they get to them when they can. Learning curve included in their efforts. This is all I know and have been told in the past. I'm sure it'll be back - and when it comes back online I'll post up to inform you all. ...please stand by....
