Charles, sorry I have been away since friday and have just returned home.So yes, Dave (dollysprint) it would be beneficial for both concerns to have greater co-operation and communication between the two. It would be good to see the goings on, on Facebook translated more to the forum, for the benefit of those who don't always use Facebook or have their reasons for not using Facebook.
My last point is ultimately, whether club or forum, I think we as 800 owners should agree about the prosperity of the cars themselves and their continued existence to be importantly above any individual Clubs or Forums.
Your point about Facebook has been raised and it is now well understood that not everyone uses that medium, hence the need for a liaison to post future events and possible ways forward for the 800 marque to achieve the status it deserves.
Facebook is an excellent way to chat in relatively real time,both the Forum and the Club have Facebook pages, but as a searchable archive it is completely useless. That makes 800.info invaluable to present and future owners of the 800 series. The 800 Club however is the way to raise the profile of the cars to the general classic car public and hopefully future owners. The larger the profile then the more cars will be saved from the crusher, the more people will view 800 as a car worth restoring or at least passing on to someone who will restore it.
Your last point is ,I think, one we all agree on.
