This is a very good site for information. You have to filter some banter from time to time, but it is a good site.

Historically speaking... The golden age is when Baker and Gach were on here regularly. That was some classic funny banter!

I think most of the serious racers got tired of Tom V and GTO George ruining every post with their BS bickering so they moved on. It’s too bad really.

snoopbook, a site where people do the "look at me" thing or pry into other peoples lives because theirs sucks.
A site DESIGNED to spy on Americans, no thanks.

My thoughts too, only reason I have to belong to fakebook is for marketplace. They have almost killed Craigslist in my area.

You do not get it George, facebook actually IS designed to spy on you. Zuc did not invent that thing himself. Control people, its awful.
And the people who take a picture of their new toy, motorcycle, generator and post it, loser move.
I believe it will be gone or be re done at some point.
Things will come back to PY, Pzone.
On snoopbook you might not have to worry about the law if you are straight arrow. But you do have to worry about looking like a no life loser.

That is some really stupid chit there that you posted FAST69.

Post up who/what a "Serious Racer" is.

I done Bonneville 3 times, the Baja 1000 race one time and the a Baja 1000 "Loop Race" (2/3rds the distance) twice,
Drag Raced for 10 years, National Tech Inspector for the SCCA and went thru Bob Bondurant's driving school on Ford's dime,
Drove a Ford GT-40 over 200 mph on the Michigan Proving Grounds, crewed on a Texas Mile racer. That is MY HISTORY.

Post up your racing background.

Tom V.

Now George likes Bracket Racing, do not know if he has ever done any other racing.

So you can post on PY with no worries of security?

Well, PY is just a bunch of Pontiac guys. 98% are cool, honest. never been ripped off although someone did threaten to dox me once.

snoopbook is a evil cooperation run by a evil creep in Zuk. Did you see what happened to the guy who ran Metta recently in a private sting operation ? The worst of the worst. If they hire guys like that to run the place there has to be more there. Look it up, not fit for the race section so I will not speak anymore about it. People know where I stand.
Add it all up, not for me.

I never said anything about your experience. You have contributed many helpful posts and have years of experience. But the fact you got so defensive shows that even yourself knows that the endless childish bickering between you George gets tiresome and has caused many members to abandon the race page,myself included. It has been the cause of numerous, very educational and helpful posts to get locked. You can either own that fact or post another defensive reply. I suspect the latterÖ.
