I agree with the rest of you guys.  I won't waste my time with Facebook groups.  Hate that you cannot easily see previous posts or ads.  It is okay for a quick fix but that's about it (along with messaging).

imo...the airspeed forum > the airspeed fb.

as is the case with most things in life, quality is more important than quantity. i find the content on the forums more helpful, interesting and knowledgeable than the content on fb. bwaz called some of the stuff on fb clutter, i sometimes refer to it as "noise".

however, we must respect the reach and response that is present with fb and also realize that there is space for both mediums (forums & fb) and that they both do certain things well, and other things not so well. i dont have a fb account but i use my girlfriend lori's account to lurk and see whats happening as well as post on the zundfolge car clubs page every once & awhile. i agree with brian, it's important to check both every so often to keep up with all that is happening. whether or not one wants to engage or participate by having a profile & posting is up to each individual!

chris c had posted in another thread that this is a free site (except for the odd person that chips in) and hopefully it is relatively easy to manage & maintain and will continue to be around for a long time to come!

i think the best thing we can do as members of this forum is chip in when funds allow (example, donate 10% of the profit of next item you sell in the classifieds to the site), thank the folks that keep the site operational (thanks y'all...you rock!!), tell everyone you know to visit/become a member/post on the asf...and...keep posting as much cool stuff here that you possibly can!!

long live the asf!!

Classifieds / Re: Official buy,sell,trade VW licence plate frame thread

Followed a caddy truck today with a nice pacific VW burnaby frame on it....I was trying to get up beside him in traffic to yell out window and offer to buy hahaha
Long time ago, I know.....
Are you sure you saw "Burnaby" on it?
Volkswagen Pacific started on Seymour St in Vancouver in 53 or 54(?), then opened up a second location on Broadway, finally moving to 4444 Lougheed Hwy in Burnaby.  My car was sold from the Burnaby location, but came with a "Volkswagen Pacific, Vancouver" frame.  I've asked two former employees of that dealer and they said that when Vancouver and Burnaby were both in operation at the same time, the frames were always "Vancouver".
But later on, the Vancouver location closed, leaving only Bby.  By then you would think they'd make the frames with Burnaby?  Or was that at the time when frames were all plastic?

Who's got a Volkswagen Pacific Burnaby frame??

I recently deleted FB as I spent too much of my time checking it to keep up to date.
Life's too short to have my face buried in a phone

Amen brother! I deleted FB last year, and don't miss it much. The forums are certainly less travelled these days, but oh well. I'm not going back. It would just angry up my blood too quick.
Forums forever!

Most forums are suffering from this.
So many ppl looking for instant easy posting.
It will be sad if these type of sites fade off into the sunset.
