I think there's an extremely dedicated few that will carry on the 1st generation hobby for the foreseeable future. And as mentioned there's newer members discovering the 1st gen cars and this site too. As far as the way these cars are holding up, I think pretty good overall, but that depends on the current and especially past owner(s) if that applies. From having a handful of these cars over the years, I can verify that they are in fact uncomplicated, overbuilt vehicles that perform well and still get decent and in some cases great gas mileage. They are far from perfect cars. But the fact they are usually quickly scooped up when they come up for sale is a very telling indication of the desire some have for the 1st gen cars.
Unfortunately, this site is getting is slowly running out of members as the cars get older, passions dissolve and others migrate to Facebook. I think I'll be until the place goes away, much like some of the other sites have. Heck, I'm probably older than most other members that have these cars. In that way and others, I am a dinosaur both from a technological sense and the cars I drive.
Panther, I remember you and the other now gone members that contributed tons to the history, maintenance and performance knowledge base of the 1st gen Mazda MX6, 626 and Ford Probe GT's. The good old days on this site are long gone now, for better or most likely worse for the hobby. Don't be such a stranger to the site!
Yes, my car is ugly
