An end of a era is gone.

Sad really.

Unfortunately or fortunately, it was created for an outlet because of censorship and micromanagement.

So this thread doesn't get nuked, Mods please show understanding as this is a place mark for history sake.

Try to keep it civil please.

I'm glad that a few members banded together to stand up for what they believed in. And will forever miss the antics and snarky remarks.

I enjoyed cruising by the site to keep in touch with some of the others that don't frequent this site for a HOST of reasons. Sad that the split up and eventual separation from the bulk of the MM community has distanced them almost completely from the MM family.

Enjoyed my time over there. Had some great laughs. Scored the start to my eaton swap and learned some stuff. Sad to see it gone.

But why is it gone? I stopped by it the other day and noticed it was shut down. Did something go wrong with it?

forums are not free, require tech etc.. owners dont have the same amount of time they once did, not as involved with marauders as before. I enjoyed many a times there.

Well that sucks. Was just about to join so I wouldn't have to censor myself. That's what I get for being late.

Chris W. as a highly religious and perhaps one of the most courteous persons I’ve ever met not only washing his hands of this place and posting over there (and a part owner) should speak volumes of how far friendships can go and when it’s time to walk away from places once called home..

I'm sad to hear this. I liked to pop in, mess stuff up, and roll out. Its sad to say that forums are on the way out. Social media groups can be made by anyone at anytime if they don't like another group's method of operation. If the invaluable tech info was searchable on those platforms like it was on the forums, that would seal the deal on forum demise.

Sad ... But not surprising. Many of those that chose to leave burned their bridges and cut ties with friends and Marauder acquaintances made over the early years. Really quite a shame. I miss many of the people/screen names that left.

Me too, to all above. And I love a well crafted SNARK as much or more than the next guy!

I was once on a plane, went to the thier site on my Corp laptop, and some how a huge picture of a female (usually covered by a few layers of clothing) GIRL PART covered my entire laptop screen.

I must admit... I really really like these girl parts, I mean... I really like them! But not having the pop up unannounced in HUGE edge to edge TECHNICOLOR on my Corp laptop, ON A PLANE, with two ladies seated next to me!

I almost had a stroke!

Yes.... Totally my fault ( no need to defend them and flame me here)...but it was startling, embarrassing (I am a gentleman), and unannounced.

All of this is fun, and cool, and probably covered by free speech, and on and on and on... And could have gotten me thrown off plane and maybe even fired from my job.

Again, all my fault.

Sad to see them gone too. End of an error (see what I did there?)

So now... What do we do? I say let's revitalize and remake back into the fun, funny, supportive, informative, cadre of car folks it used to be!

I don't want this place to go away.

So let's all share one COOL selfless story.

My first MM story...
5 years ago a member named Rocky read I was buying an MM IN Tenn, And then driving it west through Oklahoma (Tulsa-where he lived) to California. He found a new pair of OEM spoilers for both of us and had them painted at his dealership when a same color black ford needed repair. As my tire rubber was stock, old dangerous... He used his dealership pricing and hooked me up with new OEM BFG tires and an alignment at cost -- and then presented me with the painted spoiler at cost too!

What is your cool story?
