This site will be going offline on 9/28/2006 at 9:30 AM (Eastern) in order to move to a new server. This move should be complete by the end of the day, although it may take up to 48 hours for DNS changes to propagate to your internet service provider.
10/9/2006 UPDATE: The server move went pretty smoothly. There were only a few hours of downtime (mostly due to how long it takes to move 15GB of data across the internet and then unpack a zillion tiny files). At this point, we are using a master/slave setup for the database. This has worked out so well that the search restrictions have been drastically decreased. There is still a 60 second wait between searches (this does NOT apply if your first search returns no results) and you are still limited to 1000 results, but the limit of 5 users searching at a time has been removed, as has the 5 minute penalty for double-clicking the Search's "Go" button.

The site has been and will be undergoing maintenance to upgrade the CMS. In the near future we are planning to upgrade to a new version of MySQL and PHP.
Till this is completed the CMS will be down for short periods of time and may not look as it did before.

You may have noticed that yesterday the site was down for a short period due to server upgrades. We intend to make some more adjustments to this setup that will further increase the response times of ThirdGen.org.
Today we will be upgrading vBulletin to version 3.6 so the techboards will be down for a short while around 11am.

While going through old VHS tapes, firebirdta84 came across an old GM commercial for the 1984 Chevrolet Camaro Berlinetta. He converted it into a MPEG format which can be viewed here: 1984 Chevy Camaro Berlinetta Commercial
We've also added a new Tech Article on the VATS and PASSKey system for those who need help troubleshooting the system that can cause a no-start condition. The article can be seen here: VATS and PASSKey System

Attention all ThirdGen.org users! It took a little bit of time but we've managed to better organize your on going collection of Frequently Asked Questions here on the main page. If you get a chance hop on over to the FAQ page and see if there are any other questions that would fit into any sections. If you know of anything else that would be a great addition to this page contact JT with a link to the forum page that provides the content that we could turn into it's own page in the FAQ.
As you can see we're still working hard to make ThirdGen.org the best it can be. Feel free to contact us in the message boards with you ideas, suggestions, and comments.

Do you want to post images of your ride for everyone to see? Want to let everyone know what you've got under the hood, how fast you've run, and what awards you've won? You're in luck, we've just installed vBGarage!
For those of you who've never heard of vBGarage, it's a plugin for vBulletin that allows EVERY registered user to have a custom, personalized page where they can tell everyone else about their car and post pictures for everyone to see. Interested? I knew you would be. Follow the directions below to add your car to vBGarage. One last thing. We've recently added a "Gallery" section to the site (see here). All images uploaded by users into vBGarage will be reviewed and possibly posted to the main gallery. If, for some strange reason, you don't want your car posted in the main gallery, please do not upload a picture (or make sure you upload a low-quality image that no one will actually want to look at).
If you have large images that you want to post and you're using Windows XP, you can use the Image Resizer Power Toy from Microsoft. This handy, free utility lets you resize images with little more than a simple right-click. You can get the installer here.
