    Default your thoughts please

    As you all know I found my way to Callaway with seeing the Sledgehammer pictures back in 1988 and fell in love with the aerobody.

    from one came another and at this stage I am fully addicted to the brand.

    since Callaway did the German cars in their early years and I live in Europe that connection was quicly made.

    So I searched all over internet to obtain information on all C1 projects

    with being registered to almost 20 different forums at one point.
    I came up with the idea to open my own website dedicated to the early turbokits only
    as my friend Chris has done a tremendous job on all later C projects with COG

    I also generated a Forum, which looks like this :


    this is just a test , as I still need to do some cosmetics and there is a problem with sending SMTP mail.
    and ofcourse I need to write Reeves Callaway an email about his approval using his brand in a (non-commercial) website.


    But in general what would be your thoughts when you hear this,

    I am very happy with CAC putting a separate 'Callaway non Vette' section but it still is a Corvette board.

    Looks good to me!
    The first thing I would do (after approval) is getting that forum in the top of Google's searches (example with Callaway + forum). When you have a C1 and you know there aren't many C1's you have the most change of getting the right members when the forum is easy to find. Cosmetics isn't what would interest me at first.

    Groeten Peter

    Peter,

    like said, I am registered to over 20 forums and have a huge database of email adresses with owners and enthusiasts of the C1 turboprojects.

    and when I find out there is no interest at all , well, bad luck
    for me it is relaxing and educational as well.
    some people like to restore their 81 completely ;-)

    I am hosting a website with scans of the articles brochures and manuals anyhow as my perception of a tribute to the early Callaways

    You know, as long as you enjoy it, it doesn't matter how many other people read it or like it. I say make the BEST C1 website in the entire world!!!

    Not many Camaro fans like Callaway C8s, but that doesn't stop me from loving them. I'll have a Callaway section on my Camaro website sometime this year hopefully. The information I have is far too complicated for me to deal with it now (and hopefully, Anthony will share some info with me soon that I don't already have).

    I'm still preparing to find a new job, so I haven't had time to update this page in about 3 or 4 weeks, but here it is:

    I'm sure you'll get a positive response.

    By the way, did those videos and pics I sent you work out? I never heard back from you.
