    I haven't been able to recently give MagnumGT the attention it deserves -- but will try to change that.

    I'll be leaving this thread up as a sticky -- to allowing y'all to give ideas for posts and pages. I need to have it pretty much ready to copy and paste to there.

    Use this thread to post YouTube Videos, technical papers, how tos, stories, etc concerning Magnums -- and if worthy, I'll put it on the site when I do my monthly context updates.

    Down the road I'll be looking for an assistant administrator/editor to handle more frequent updates.

                    OK -- I've spent the last couple of hours tuning up the look and feel of the site, a menu system to organize pages, and some other housekeeping. While cleaner looking and and the pages better organized, I still have to go through the sidebars to clean up -- and change some of the very old links in the pages that still refver to MoparStyle.net -- which I let expire and there's a cybersquater on.

                    Then I'll upload all of the great information on this post so far.

                    If you would like to author an article -- please do so, have it proofed, and post in this thread -- and I'll get it on the MagnumGT | Bright Spot in the Dark Disco Ages site. Articles that would be helpful might be:

                    • Sister Forgotten Bs of the Magnum
                    • Magnum Design History
                    • Detailed Technical papers
                    • Brazilian Magnum
                    • Magnums in drag racing
                    • anything else interesting about the 78-79 Magnums

                      I'd like to keep this MagnumGT | Bright Spot in the Dark Disco Ages site up to date with fresh context -- but I'm spread too thin to constantly look for it.

                      If you run into good "Public Domain" content concerning the 78-79 Dodge Magnums -- please add it here so I can add the appropriate to the site on a routine basis.
