Gentleman,

Contrary to some of the statements above we do talk to the vendors to remind them to keep their ads in the Vendor Ad forum, we will again. There are not many vendors left as other social media sites offer a broader reach for less money. However, Evom traffic remains good (many more than five active members) for a platform that is no longer in production. The classifieds are doing very well, the Evo remains the best 4 banger for your mod dollars. Please report issues as you see them and the mods will review.

Evom was founded about a year before the first Evo 8 made it to the US. It was a exciting time passing rumors concerning what Evo 8 we would get in the US and the forums exploded. I believe I took delivery on one of the first Evo's in the Mid Atlantc as it was a full 6 months before I saw another in the wild. Things change and hopefully all of you will continue to act as senior forum Evo experts to help new member owners. Thank you!

Bob

I was kidding. It won't be fixed overnight. I'm surprised Okanos or Oakanos, whatever hasn't been spamming, though. They can usually fill up a page of "New Posts" all by themselves.

There where also a bunch of people back then that didn't know anything about cars other than wanting to drive them fast. Same as now. There are always a percentage of old dudes at the track with Corvette hats and shirts that don't know jack crap about their car other than wanting to just drive it fast, and plenty of old dudes like me that wired the whole damn car, pretty much put it all together and apart and back again, can tell you every single little annoying fact about their car and like to drive fast.

Well I just realized I am NOT the oldest Evo X nut here.... Despite my wife saying I need to grow up, I clock in at 40....well below Bryan by a safe margin...
Your other points were valid despite my post of basically saying "these ripper snapper kids these days can't screw in a light bulb...."

Yup, i'm only 27, but have seen 50+ year old's with evos. For some of us these cars with be life long toys. There is still much to be uncovered on this platform and it's up to us to uproot that knowledge. I've seen some members improve oem parts of the car through their own CAD designs. Much respect.

I'm not trying to get spiritual or anything here, LOL, but between all the cars I've owned, when I bought my first Evo I felt at "home ". it was the first time I had owned a car that did everything I wanted it to do and did it really well. I like how they look, and really, really enjoy how they drive. Out of all the cars I've had on the track, the Evo has been my favorite. The only thing that came close was my type R. The Evo is such a great platform for me, I couldn't imagine owning anything else. I would never sell it, but wouldn't mind adding some type of hard-core front engine rear wheel drive performance vehicle to the garage. And my Civic to daily, of course.
