...anyone there?

Always surprised at how quiet this forum is. Why is that? Are there bigger/better forums covering the banger scene? Have bangernomical motorists just not heard of the site? Are bangernomic motorists not very computer savvy? Perhaps not 'community' types? Or is driving old/cheap cars really that uncommon?

All very good questions for which I have no answer  :Cr:

I'd go for the last one. Its certainly very uncommon here in Taiwan, and I've just come back from Japan, where almost everything was very new, shiny, and boring.

That scrappage scheme was clearly a govt/industry/punter conspiracy to create the same situation in the UK.

Havn't been back much since though, so I don't know how successful they've been.

Its also a vicious circle. The less active a forum is, the less incentive to use it, because there's less to look at, and you're less likely to get questions answered.

I quite like the format here (especially the "tips" bit) and there are some useful special features of a banger site, such as a focus on generally older technology, and a willingness to think "outside the box" (perhaps because there's less at stake) that is likely to get you flamed on a more mainstream site (you-think-you-know-better-than-Ford-stylee) but bangers aren't really that different from cars in general, so the "niche marketing" lacks definition.
