Default Restomod and Classic separate sections vote

Let's get a feel of how the members here on the classic section feel about separating the section into two sections. One would be the classic section as we currently enjoy and the other would be the restormod section where restomods would discuss their cars. The possibility would be that all years of Mustangs that are restomodded could wind up in that forum section. The admins are suggesting that we separate this forum into two sections and that if a restomod question or answer comes on here I would simply move it to the restomod section where another moderator would deal with it.

There is no point in two sections. The a lot of the restomod guys don't know old fashion technics that are crucial to building a classic and the oem classic guys may learn a thing or two. I would hate having to log into two sections to figure the answer to a question.

I think that even though there are things changed on a restomod, underneath all the new parts and fancy stuff is a classic. i said leave it alone.

I say leave it alone seeing that my car will look classic but with the drive train modified. I would not like to have to flip back and forth not only my questions but to see other members treads that give me idears and directions.

I say leave it alone. Being a new member to this forum, I must say that I find this bickering between these two groups is distracting from the information I am trying to find. I also feel the information between the two are very similar and very informative, whether or not I take my car in the restomod direction or not, the information that the restomods provide is still very valuable. They know their classic mustang just as well as an factory original resto. If I want to learn how to take off a quarter panel, why should I have to search for that information in two different forums. I just doesn't make sense to me.

I say quit the bickering, we are all working on old cars.

I think everyone has some restomod options except for the concours guys. Saftey and reliabilty are a good reason to upgrade. Granted there are some crazy things ya'll do to your cars!

If it ain't broke don't fix it. I've received loads of information on my Restomod from people like Soaring or whoever else is into the Original styling.

But it *is* broken, that's the problem. There are several of us who like to discuss modifications to our cars, yet we get chastised, belittled and called names because we do it. This has to stop! Glen can have his section where he controls what is said and the rest of us can openly discuss modifications without the fear of being bashed by the moderator for voicing our opinions. We won't have to worry about on-topic threads getting moved or deleted. We won't have to worry about unnecessary censorship. Keep in mind any search that you do will search both sections, there is no extra work involved.

Look at the following thread as an example:
http://www.mustangforums.com/m_3331432/tm.htm

Do you guys really enjoy being treated like abused 6 year olds? How about standing up for your rights to openly discuss classic Mustangs in any form! A Mustang is a Mustang whether it is modified or not. This is a solution to a problem that has been present in this section for way too long.

Tony has got a point, it's always fun to see some guy talk about his restomod and then have soaring pop in and tell him it's all about keeping it stock.

If you consider being called names and being told that your equipment is a POS "fun" than I guess you have a point. However, I would be willing to bet that isn't very many people's idea of fun. Read through the link in my above post and imagine that about 15% - 20% of Glen's posts are like that. He likes to run his section that way and will tell you so because he "doesn't answer to anyone". I feel that type of personal abuse is unnecessary and can be avoided by having a separate section.

Well said Troy.

Obviously I support having a Modified Section. This section would allow those who want to ask questions about issues like larger wheels and tires, disc brakes, suspension upgrades, modified engines, T-5s, EFI, digital gages, etc without encroaching on the purist who think these modifications detract from the originality of their Mustangs.

Seems to me that most of the newer members are often asking about things to do to make their cars safer and more fun. These fall into the modified category more often than the basic car criteria.

VMF is a similar forum that has basic, concours,and modified forums. They cohabitate well with most members cover multiple sections. The best part is that there is no bickering or insults there about what constitues a 'real mustang'.

Open up a Modified section and you will find me there 90% of the time helping those with Mustangs .... and yes Hornblower... my 65 Fastback is as much of a Mustang as yours or any other car here.

I think I might like to change my vote, sure they are both classics, but restomods are not 100% classic. JamesW and Troy got me convinced, there are many things that could benefit from seperate forums. Not so much bickering back and forth, a chance for people who are curious about newer mods for their cars have a cahnce to do so on a forum based on it. I say change it now, I was swayed.

Separate. For some reason I think a pure classic section would be a little lonely.

I'm not saying name calling is fun and if glen is like that it still isnt going to change his personality by moving him to another section.

I'm sorry.

I'm 23 and don't consider myself a genius but what good does separating them do? Why not everyone just get your tail out between your legs, like what you do to your car, and ignore the negative opinions of others.My car is modified, but I have relied on the knowledge of Soaring and the other traditionalists. I wouldn't have it any other way. If you separate them,I just have to make that many more clicks to check out all the great cars on both ends of the spectrum.

I tell people all the time in the audio section what is the best value for the money, what brands are good and what brands are poor. If someone disagrees I don't whine, I know what I know and can beleive it. If someone disagrees, I don't cry about it, its not my money or time.

There is something to be said about calling names, that is for kids. But isn't it more childish to allow people on the internet to bully you around!

Doesn't company use the slogan, "what makes us different, makes us great"?
