New Section
« on: December 04, 2015, 01:37:10 PM »
Stayed tuned for expansion in this category...

We will plan on doing one car or one topic per thread for now.

Who can start a thread is limited (the same as in the Research Topics and Reports section), but anyone can post.

The focus (as I envision it) is more about the car and the parts on it, less about the history of the car (though that can definitely be part of it).
When the thread is about a part, obviously the cars don't have to be survivors, but have original parts on them. ;)

Sounds good. The survivor category is very strict. Even non survivors have some originality that we can learn from.

I think 99% of first Gens probably have at least one original part on them...... ;)

Most cars have more, and we can definitely learn from them.

What are the thread's qualifications to be a "survivor" ?

Victor, we have the description of the section as "original or mostly original". We don't have a strict guideline at this point. In my mind the car should as a minimum have the complete original engine, trans, rear axle. Original or mostly original paint and interior. If the car has had some very minor paint repair or a seat fixed, it may still be considered.

But those are kinda what we are looking for in this section. Unrestored...

We will see how this evolves.

I could see some cross over with the originality thread, but I think having the reference of other members cars here to draw on will be great for all of us.

I agree with Darrell. Might move that thread here and it would be easy to find. I was lucky to get to see it in person and its amazing.

Moved that one.
I could see populating this forum with threads like that. But often those threads go off on tangents and I would like to keep this section more informational.

I guess my car falls in line as a survivor, with the exception of a few of expendable/ rubber parts and a portion of the interior, it has a lot of born with parts and still has the paint as it sat on the showroom floor!!

The section of the thread that went "off on a tangent" could be edited out keeping only relevant info,IMO? You could keep the original thread in it's original location on the site and have a second "edited" version re-named to not confuse the 2.  An example using the first entry would be, "Amazing z/28 survivor edited". That way, doing a search, one could put a key word, "edited" and all threads from this section would appear. Just a thought. Perhaps another word if "edited" is undesirable. I am thinking that this section would be more a pictorial and sparse on words? I would also think that prospective cars would be submitted to a moderator first? to see if the car qualifies? or by invitation by a moderator?
