Why is the Galaxie forum better than the Thunderbird Forum

So I own a Galaxie and a Thunderbird. Thunderbird forum not as exciting as the Galaxie forum. They hardly ever post new stuff!

Maybe there is just not as many Tbird owners? Or us Galaixie people just roll like dat!

Always be yourself, because the people that matter don't mind, and the ones who mind, don't matter.

Maybe they're a more refined group, or just don't want to share their secrets, haha.

Re: Why is the Galaxie forum better than the Thunderbird Forum

I know that there are lots of Thunderbird specific forums out there, covering all of the various iterations. Is it maybe because the Galaxie specific forums aren't as good as what you can find here on FM? Just making a supposition, I have owned a 95 and a 66 TBird, but never a Galaxie (not that I dislike them),


cheers

Re: Why is the Galaxie forum better than the Thunderbird Forum

i'm not sure why, but FM's little galaxie thread is one of the best anywhere...folks are usually more civil than most of the other forums i visit- the FM late model mustang thread is kinda dead, but theres others...

themustangsource is my fave for mustang related stuff, another very well put together site...I'm sure if you shop around theres other tbird forums too, just hard to find ones that are busy/friendly/not over-moderated...

maybe if you find some you dont care much for, invite some folks to fm- it only takes a few to really get it rolling...FE, Shotrod, GregCook, the late Murff and tbirdchick seemed to get most of the conversations rolling years back, always a fun read... then theres those with the true passion for their old cars like JC and some of the guys and gals that got the car their grandfather/parents had, and heck- they even like 4 doors here, huh Gary

CONFIDENCE: that feeling you get just before you realize the mess you got yourself into...

Re: Why is the Galaxie forum better than the Thunderbird Forum

Galaxies themselves were designed for the more genteel of people, so a habit of graciousness for new posters flows naturally.

Good catch, Jim. You see how I edited that? Initially I had included a pretty long explanation as to how there were exceptions to the genteel idea - exceptions mitigated by hard knowledge, crude but honest postings and strange likability including an annual July 4th BBQ. But then I scratched it because everyone would know I was talking about FE anyway.

Edit: oops July 14th BBQ
