I've been on this forum for over 16 years (hard to believe it's been that long) and I never even owned a Mustang or SVT vehicle - in fact the only Ford I've owned was a 97 Escort lol. Still, of all the forums that I've been a member, this is the only one I continue to visit daily, remain active. I don't see that changing anytime soon. I'm just glad Travis never sold out to Internet Brands, like a lot of the forums did, because it seems to be the kiss of death for these online communities.
This forum follows suit on what America was built on. Freedom. It respects all equally unless you prove undeserving of such. This place attracts many like-minded people, but even the fruit cakes are welcome so as long as they can take/dish out the punishment. Everyone is fair game at any time.
Admin/moderating team makes it all possible thanks to their thick skin, hands off / censorship free approach. Even they take their licks.
No other forum I’ve been on ever comes close.
I'm not on near as much as I used to be, but the shear diversity of topics is hard to find anywhere else.
"Pics that make you LOL" and the politics forum are always good for a few daily check-ins.
The crazy thing is- this place used to be even tighter knit. I met some of my closest friends in this crazy place.
Until you mooch on a bet and you're never allowed backI think of this place as a local small town bar where everyone from the judge, to the cops, mechanics, the bankers, teachers, machinists, etc get together after work to blow off steam, share information, and discuss the news around town. Occasionally a fight breaks out, but all is forgiven after a gentleman's handshake.
Alternatively, we're all just nuts in the insane asylum that is SVTP.
I've definitely made a few acquaintances here.
Hell, babies have been made because of SVTP.
