Another E-Series Network Partnership!!
The next, and perhaps final tier of the FF merger has been proposed. Rather than make these decisions on my own, this time I am infoming everyone of progress from day 1.
I responded to a post in the 'Pub' forum by 'adviliax mortus' (aka Nick) who asked if there was any demand for a "late model" Falcon club from EA onwards. And clearly there was. I responded by suggesting he, as an AU owner, start up an AU Club in the same vein as my EA-ED Club or Sundeep's EF-EL Club.
Fortunately it turned out he had the same idea. All that would remain is working out a few issues. Now, what does this mean?
* A rename of the E-Series Falcon Network forums to something like the Late Model Falcon Network, and the addition of an AU Club 'Events & Meets' forum.
* It is believed that at this time, registration and web sites of the 3 Network divisions will be seperate. Rules will be seperate as well. For example, Nick wishes to require a minimum of 3 mods, but this idea could not be carried through to the EA Club. Heck, after spending $7,000 even my car wouldn't meet the criteria. But a truly caring EA-ED owner is a relatively rare thing itself.
* There would be occasional combined EA-AU events, as well as the usual seperate ones.
I'd like to add that I remain aware of the issues people tend to bring up. Will the EA owners be the underdogs? Not the way I see it, because now that the dust is truly settling from the E-Series/FF merger, I am finding that the common interest of Ford cars is overriding everyone's initial scepticism of this change.
I am open to any questions or concerns, and will keep everyone informed of developments.
