My Web Site

Post by El Kabong » Tue Jan 07, 2003 9:37 pm

OK - Some of you know, but if you don't, I have a site I built and maintain that shows my car hobby and also actually integrates my computer hobby by virtue of the site design itself. Anyone interested in either cars or web design is welcome to visit and tell me what you think.

I've got the 69 Camaro and the 56 Ford F-100

Nice site Bonger. No broken links that I noticed. It's easy to navigate, however I couldn't find a way back once I went to the forum/discussion board. It could just be me though... see my sig below.

Suggestion... When you click on the spark plugs and the text slides out... well, the text slides out kinda slow. Power users like to jump around quickly and you can't tell where the spark plug will take you until the text slides out. If it slid out a bit faster I think it would be better. Of course, these are just my opinions and not necessarily those of management or of this station. :P

I like your site, El K. I didn't totally dissect it, because it's my lunch time (only 30 mins), but I enjoyed it.

The first thing I checked out was the magnifying thingy. That's cool. Haven't seen something like that before. Now where are the car chicks? Heh heh... I guess I should be asking Cobie about that and his site.

Anyway, I then saw the spark plugs and thought, a-ha, that must be the menu! I concur with T on that.

Oh darn, is there sound with your site, I had my speakers off.

I enjoyed the pics. Looks like a nice area. Cars look awesome! I'll look at the rest of the site later on. Good job!

P.S. Wish I lived down south again to get some help from you, Cobie and Pit. What would you do with a 1998 BMW 318i ?

What would any of you do with a 1998 BMW 318i? (with the engine, other parts, body, electronics, etc.)

Not sure what your asking. Is it drivable? Or do you want to part it out? :D Joking.

Nice site Bonger. Easy to get around. Loved that magnifying glass. That was different. I know a sales rep that comes by my work that would love your site. Hes big into cars/auto racing. Keep up the good work :)

Hey Cobie,

Heh heh... yes it's running just fine. Nice pic! Just wondering if you had one, what mods would you do to it. I'm searching for some ideas.

Mine is the same color, but doesn't have the alloy wheels or fog lights. Now y'all know what I drive.

Any ideas/suggestions large scale or small, expensive or cheap, let me know.

Vroom, vroom, vroom!!!

Pretty car. :mosh:

No, below is my car as of 11 years or so. A '88 Lincoln Mark VII.

The one thing that I noticed a improvement in power vs dollars was the K&N filter. I also had some less restrictive mufflers put on.

Thats about it. The 5.0 HO motor in mine humps along pretty good :D

Thanks for the nice reviews guys. I fixed the return to the main site from the bulletin board and made it fairly obvious so it should be easy to find. Im not sure what to do on the sparkplug buttons. Do you think if the words were quicker to slide out that's good enough or should each button be pre-labeled some way when the page loads? I am also working on the magnifier so you can look at a choice of maybe 6 or 8 pictures by selecting a button - comments?

NSRA at Knoxville,TN

Post by Cobra » Tue Jan 28, 2003 9:25 pm

El Kabong,

You ever frequent the nsra show at Knoxville May the 2-4th?

The wife and I haven't ever been to it, and basically Missy has talked us into going this year. The Shades of the Past is ok except for the damn field.

Anyway, Im hoping I have my Mustang by then so I can go to the Mustang Club of America show that same weekend at Pigeon Forge. I hope to be there all day friday then spend two days in Knoxville for the street rod show. Im looking forward to it, especially the warmer days! 8)

You selling the Camaro!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :o

Knoxville

Post by El Kabong » Tue Jan 28, 2003 10:04 pm

Yes'm I will be at the Knoxville show fer sure. We will have to make arrangements to meet up while there. As for the Camaro, it has sat in the garage for over 6 months without as much as an engine crank. If ya don't drive 'em ya don't need 'em. Actually I need the space and the money if I want to start a new project. As much as I'd like to keep everything and continue collecting there is a limit to what my budget will allow. At least that's what I hear my wife droning on about in the background............What's that dear? no more cars? I can't hear you over the supercharger VROOOMMM VROOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM :scatter:

Kabong, I think if the text slid out of the spark plugs a little faster that it would help, but thats just my opinion. I think you've done a great job on your site. Keep up the good work.

Thanks T, I think I will do that. I'm running the flash at 12fps and the text is set to 10 frames to slide out. I think 5 frames may be more in line, anyway I'm gonna try it and see.

Cobie, for the first time I noticed your Cobra icon's flames change colors. Cool. Is that a new thing?

El K. A 69 Camaro? Far out!

Ok, Ill give you my cell phone number and we will meet up somewhere.
I was noticing on the Corbin motorcycle show sunday night that the Chilhowee park in Knoxville where they have the Honda Hoot now looks like it a much nicer place than the field at the Shades of the Past.

I got a room at the Hampton Inn at exit 398 on the corner of I40 and Strawberry plains pike rd.

I figured the reason you were selling the Camaro is you had your eyes on another car/truck. Just wait.
Ah yes, the whine of a 671 huffer on an American muscle car.:mosh: :mosh:

Oh... wait, this is the cars topic. Sorry. :oops:
