A reminder that this rule is strictly enforced.

I will delete non-Lincoln-related replies if users try to get a around the rule by posting short replies.

I've turned on user activation by email as of today. This will save me time not having to approve users. However, the first two posts must be manually approved. If it's spam, the account will be banned, then deleted.

Got my first spammer under the new rules. With required post approval, it was caught and he was banned and deleted before anyone saw it.

Deleted users registered before September 17, 2023 who did not post.

Morning all, just picked up a 69 Mk3 project with 78k miles from Facebook Marketplace yesterday. I've got two kids in their early teens, so this will be a family project they'll eventually be able to drive. Looks like the vacuum system is the first challenge, as there are disconnected hoses all over the engine compartment. I'm sure it will be a lot of work, but thinking about the end result is exciting!

I understand why. Just bought a 1970 Lincoln mark 3 today, which has several electrical issues. The price was right though (famous last words of a car restorer)

If you got deleted because you didn't post, you can re-register. If you attempted to post spam, you've been banned six ways from Sunday.
