End of WeDG

Hi all,
Due to well over two years of a clear lack of interest in this board, I will be closing it when the hosting is up next month (24 Aug). I see no reason to continue this with the lack of readership and participation.

It's been a wonderful 27+ years, with tons of ups and downs, but with all the excellent resources available to us online via Telegram, YouTube and other platforms - we've outgrown our purpose. I do not believe any huge modification/improvements to the site would help, plus that has always been way beyond my knowledge/skill set.

Y'all know how to reach me.

    The oldest model I have at work is a 1997 Taurus, and that has a PCM (computer) in it. When they started diagnosing cars with a laptop, I didn't think it was mechanic anymore either.

    Yea, most of the newer cars take an electronic technican to fix them. Older cars requiew an actual mechanic. And they sure are a lot easier to work on under the ole shade tree. Of course, when you do need to take it to a mechanic, they will probably tell you that they have this new fangled contraption that they will install and it will fix everything....

    Actually, some car manufaturers have been putting them in for some time. Insurance companies love the idea of a black box, set to record on a 5 - 20 second loop, it can record speed, bracking, sudden changes in steering, all just before the impact and air bag deployment. Law Enforcement can then use the data to help determine just who was a fault.

    Next thing you know, insurance companies will be advertising the benefits of them, and they'll probably even give you a discount if your "data" indicates you are a safe driver. Wait, there's one {progressive} company that already advertises taking a snapshot of you...by Flo no less.

    Look, it's for your safety.
    Yeah, I don't buy that either.
    They need these kind of excuses, to bring these big brother things out which will work up to the mark of the beast and also a police state where they will be watching everything we do. If you walk, they will have one of these in your shoes one day lol..
