    FYI, I got a few memberships to 'free' sites too, but since I found CK5 I've never been back to them! I'm sure someone will correct me, but membership pays for upkeep, you don't get the full size ads at the top/side of the screen, theres a lot of give-aways for paid members (my last count 5 parts give-aways this month so far) plus the monthly $50 give-away...I don't mind the fee-it keeps the flamers out. If everyone could come in and post what ever they want, this site wouldn't be worth coming to IMO. Just my thoughts...

    By the way, I'm a recovering Bronco owner...still say i shoulda gotten rid of the wife instead of it...now don't have either! /forums/images/graemlins/screwy.gif man i loved that bronco (69) /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    i am sorry man, i feel for you it must be such a strugle to have to own thouse fords, you can at least look in the for sale section and find your self a nice k5, there is a few nice ones in there. and once you do no one will hold your furds aganst you.......once you burn them /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif ah just messen with ya man.


    and as for the paying the price is reasonable for the info provided, it seems to keep the real chev enthuseusts(i cant spell) here, and the ones with less creaditable info out.

    except for timmay, we don't know what to do about him /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    The board not being free is because the Internet is not free, despite most people misconception. If you didn't notice your not getting hammered with Pop ups and banner ads. That's how most sites are paid for. Banner ads and pop ups don't pay much these days and most of us don't need Viagra. So getting enough ads to pay for 2.5million hits a month this site generates would mean non stop pop ups every time you clicked a thread.

    Years ago when the Bandwidth usage got out of hand and it was costing Steve (Mr. ColoradoK5) to have to pay several hundred bucks out of pocket each month. It was down to closing the site or take ads on to pay for it. A bunch of us offered to make a donation to keep the site here without the ads. WE ASKED for this to become a pay site so we didn't have to get hammered with those ads. What Ads you do see are reputable business that our members deal with that help support the site with advertisement of sponsoring a Forum.

    This being a pay site also cut down a lot of problems where random folks were posting For Sale ads and ripping people off. Now you have to be a paid member to make an ad. That eliminated most of the problems. It also ended most spaming.

    Let your brother surf around here and decide if he feels membership is worth it. Most of the owners of those K5's he sees in the mags are members here.

    The Garage is a gift to those that don't have the money to help support the site from those that do support the site.

    Welcome to CK5.
