Sports Car Digest is pleased to announce our new Forum section, a great place for enthusiasts to talk about auction results, event photographs, vintage racing action, stories from the golden years and much more.
The forum is a natural extension of the many interesting and great discussions that have taken place in the ‘comments’ area of individual stories published on Sports Car Digest. Our hope is that the forum will become a place where these discussions can be expanded even further, with readers adding photos and other information to supplement the stories.
Feel free to post about anything you find interesting or questions you would like solved. For example, a story about a car or race that needs to be told, a good book you read, a “what is this?” picture and so forth. In addition, we encourage you to discuss the latest auction trends, vintage car racing stories and/or just about anything else you can imagine.
While the site is built on the leading vBulletin platform and should look very recognizable to Forum or Bulletin Board veterans, those new to the discussion board concept are encouraged to click on the “Frequently Asked Questions” tab to help guide you through the process. You have to register before you can post, which is a industry-standard practice to avoid issues with spam.
Here is a brief overview of what you can expect. The forum has six main sections: Auctions, Market Moves and Values; Events and Concours d’Elegance; Vintage Car Racing; Photo Gallery; Marques and Miscellaneous. While we have purposely limited the sections and sub-sections to date, we will happily add more sections as the site grows. Please let us know if you have any suggestions.
