    I know I'm really new to this site, but I read this & might have an idea. I was on another forum where they ran into the same issue. They opted to keep their "Buy / Sell" area, but if you sold more than a few things a year, you had to "buy" a sellers account. If you were an individual that sold a lot, they had one price point. If you were a small business, they had another and if you were a large company, they had an even higher one. I'm not sure if this is something the owners of the site would like to look into, but it's possible.

    I think the rates were something like $50 / $200 / $500 per year. You didn't have to pay to buy, only to sell.

    I haven't donated yet, but since I ended up buying the car I came here to ask about, I'll throw some money your way when I can. I'm not a huge fan of banner ads, but will whitelist the site in my adblocker as long as the ads don't do anything nasty.

    The list is now updated..

    One thing, it looks like several of you clicked the wrong donate button, when giving to the Garrison relief fund. It all went to the same account, but is put is identified differently, depending on which button you used. Most of this happened early in February, right after Mike's fire, and when the donations were coming in hot and heavy, and I assumed that all activity, unless specifically noted otherwise, was for the Garrison relief fund.

    So if you don't see your name on this list, check the Garrison relief fund list in the bench.. and let me know if I need to move you.

    Thanks

    Hi Larry.. got you taken care of, sorry about the delay, you donated the day before we started the Garrison fund deal, and the avalanches of paypals that came after that.. Kinda snowed me under up here trying to keep track of that thing, I neglected my normal V8 duties..

    Your all set.

    Took care of your status update Ken.

    Anyone else, just let me know..

    Thanks

    Not at all Dan, my bad.. I usually am pretty good about putting in the names of those who donate by check, right when I get them, but I dropped the ball on this one.. sorry about that..

    Hi Bruno,

    Sorry I missed adding you to the list for this year. I got a bit snowed under by all the Mike Garrison stuff here right around that time, and did not do a good job keeping up with my normal V8 guys.. I will do better moving forward.

    Thanks again for your continued support, your one of the our cornerstone supporters, and have been for many years.

    I added your name.

    I'm new to this forum but have quickly gotten comfortable with the well designed forum and the way things work. I was recruited to come on over and
    check things out (Larry70GS) while using the Buick Owners Forum. I'm glad I did, because this is a great bunch of guys who are very knowledgeable
    about our beloved Buicks, very generous with ideas and suggestions (as well as unneeded parts...thank you Demolition Man!) and just plain friendly.
    Thank you Jim for keeping this ship together and I'll keep making the donations....ads or no ads!

    PS....I may have missed it, but have we ever considered making available for sale...
    1. 4" round "V8 Buick.com" window decals/stickers
    2. various colors baseball hats with same
    3. various colors logo T-shirts with same

    Just a thought, I know I'd buy a bunch though!:cool:
