Just an FYI for everyone who participates in this forum:

  • There are over nine hundred thousand (900,000) posts
  • On any given day there are over 400 new posts
  • The forum has over 40,000 registered users
  • For every registered user using this forum there are 10 more who are simply viewing it
  • The forum sees over 8,000 unique visitors every day. (Imagine attending a car show or swap meet every day, 365 days of a year)
  • As many as 1,800 people at any given moment are using the forum (when is the last time you attended a club meeting with 1,800 attendees?)
  • There are over 100 forums targeted at virtually every possible automotive niche
  • There are over 25,000 photos taking up over 10gigs of storage in the Photo Gallery
  • The forum uses over 2.5gig of bandwidth every single day
  • The AACA provides this forum FREE and has been free since 1996
  • In the 14 years this forum has been in existence there has only been 1 email send to its members, and it was only done to announce the launch of the new forum software

The forum is provided free to its users (AACA member or not).

But maintaining this forum is far from free. Servers, bandwidth, software and maintenance costs are extensive. Advertising offsets only part of the expense.

With all that said, please consider doing one of two things to help support the AACA Forums.

  1. Become a member! For $35 a year you get this forum plus the award winning Antique Automobile magazine.
  2. Buy raffle tickets! Not only will you be supporting the AACA, AACA Library and AACA Museum, but you'll also have a change to win part of over $40,000 in prizes.

Thanks in advance.
