Hey, don't be too embarrassed. I had to LOOK for it myself. And I've used it before! :wink:

I went $20, it's the least I could do for the help I get from the site, I'm also a paying member of several other automotive sites so I have to divide the wealth, but I feel like I'm getting a great benefit from the forums and I'm happy to contribute! BTW... I do frequent one forum since 1985 and it's slowly dwindling in members, it's sad because it's a great car, and the forum was really active for a lot of years, but its getting older and smaller and I'd hate to see a great forum like this one do the same. This is a fantastic forum for fantastic cars!
So everybody post and contribute!

Likewise. I try to send $20 a year, and some extra in between if I have it to spare. I'm on a fixed income, have champagne tastes in cars, and a beer budget. :(

Tried to donate from Canada. All was well until the "state" box. It seemed to recognize the Canadian postal code and leaving the "state" blank generated an error message asking for the province but ..... no provincial codes available. Did I miss something obvious? Do I need to end every sentence with an "eh", eh?

Help please,

I made the donation through the link and Paypal. Easy process as easy as fixing things when the forum members provide their help and instructions!!!!

Thank you for a great forum and merry Christmas to all!!

Please forgive the pop up that asks for donations...

I will be running them for another 10 days or so. You will probably see the pop up every 3 days or so.

Run the pop-up again around Easter when all the garage Queens (mine included :oops: ) are allowed out to play - it will remind/guilt me, and hopefully others, just how invaluable this Forum is to E24 lovers.

Thank you Brian.

With the effort Brian is putting in to update and modernize the forum, let's send some more $$$, etc. to him for his time and expense.
