Early Ford V-8 Club Forum

FORUM RULES: Users agree to these Rules when using Forum.

The site administrator reserves the right to change the terms and conditions of the user agreement without prior notice to the user. It is the responsibility of the user to regularly review the terms of this agreement.

The user agrees to the following terms:

  1. All information that you provide to us for your membership is correct.
  2. You will not use your membership to spam, harrass, or exploit other members in any way.
  3. Vulgar, Abusive, Racist and Sexist Language will not be tolerated.
  4. Commercial-type sales postings will not be allowed.
  5. No mass posting or flooding of the boards is allowed.
  6. No Advertising of parts or cars; no Ebay or business/commercial ads (please use the "Classified" for ads Wanted or For Sale).
  7. VIEWING MULTIPLE TOPICS ON SCREEN: You can choose to see more than 10 Topics at a time ... Log In and choose "Preferences" from the top bar on the Forum page. Scroll down and Change the "Default Topics Returned" parameter to 25 or 50, and save the changes. Since this setting is stored in your browser 'cookies' (if enabled), it seems to use that stored value even if you are not logged in. So, if you use a PC that you haven't logged into the forum from, the setting still seem to remain at the default.
  8. EXTERNAL PHOTO LINKS ON FORUM: You can still use external photo links in your posts on the new forum. They follow the rules of any link in that they have to have the URL link qualified down to the full image file name (example: .jpg). The links will open in a new browser window, the same as an uploaded image attached to a post. Since an image attachment to any post does not display inline with the post, the results are the same. You can use multiple external links within a post. This link is from photos on a site from Don Clink's 'Deuce@75' albums:


    Using links from photo sites such as Photobucket can help in "size" issue with uploaded attachment files. For best viewing in web browsers, photos should be around the 800x600 pixel range, and probably not more than 1024x768. Most cameras today store HUGE jpg image files, as the default settings are in the 7, 8, 10, and 12Mb image sizes. The image files that are then attached are very large, and the browser can't display the full image size without using the scroll bars. Use the re-sizing functions of your photo editing software to reduce the image to 800x600, which reduces the file sixe and the image load time in the browser. Don uses Google's free Picassa3 software, which is an excellent photo management product. All of the photo albums of the Deuce, Grand National, and Auburn that are links on the NORG site were built using Picassa's web creation functions. And it's free? (THANKS to Don Clink for the info!)
  9. HOW DO I SHOW MY EMAIL ADDRESS ALONG WITH MY USERNAME? You can LogIn on the Forum, and select PREFERENCES. On this page Members can add optional information such as their City,State, Country; Occupation; Hobbies: list a Homepage; list AOL Instant Messanger Handle; Signature; "Make Email Address viewable to others;" and even change the number of Default Topics shown on a page. WHEN others click on your profile, they will see this information.

As most of you know, Roy's business has been closed down. His hardware business has been around since 1975 when he and took other partners (one is a Fordbarn member) started Dearborn Hi-Point Specialties. That later became Roy Nacewicz Enterprises.

Aside from losing one of my closest friends, Like others; I hated to see a business that has been such a great resource to us for over 40 years come to a sudden end.

The family gave me the opportunity to purchase his business. I took the financial stretch and decided to go for it. While the business will not be the same as it lost it's largest asset, we will try and make Roy proud.

We are hitting road blocks, like finding a close by affordable Cadmium plater, and some other sources issues we will have to work through.

We will reopen his business hopefully sometime the end of October... is the tentative plan. As time gets closer I will post the actual date.. PLEASE NOTE!! We will NOT take ANY orders or lists prior to the reopen date!

Also understand, that as time moves on some pricing changes will happen both in terms of increases and decreases.. Also on that note some items may be discontinued when sold out, and several NEW products will be added that Roy and I were working on prior to his death..

The business will for the time being operate under our current business Third Gen Automotive..

Thank you for taking on the business. It is a very necessary business for correct restorations. I wish you every possible success with the venture.

Thank you, the products that Roy sold made our restorations so easy and correct. Now hopefully we can find someone to take over the "Woodie" Station Wagon business that Ed Clarke from Larchmont, NY, had before his passing. A few people have called Ed's phone number several times, but get no reply. He produced and sold many unique Station Wagon parts required for our restorations.

MG, I attribute the number of responses to the fact the original post was first on the Fordbarn where many of us go along with coming to this site. Once we responded there, I'm sure many saw no need to respond here.

Sorry, you've got it backwards. It was listed herein first by nearly an hour. You may have seen it first on fordbarn.com, but that's MG's point.

I believe that we...........appreciate what Third Gen has done, and once one of us acknowledges that, we dont have to keep congratulating the decision.
Remember ..........the silent majority.

Bruce, I would have to agree. This post was not generated on either forum to attract comments, it was intended to be only information, and give me the ability to answer any questions. With that said, the positive congratulatory comments are very appreciated..
