Agreed. Without creating ANOTHER FB page, is there any interest or possibility of joining forces with the main SSP page? A sponsorship? Is there a way to incorporate the newsfeed/posts here and vice versa?
There is a ton of information that isn't making it here - or there- for that matter. Traffic here ebbs and flows, as does my participation. It would be nice to give the forum a shot in the arm somehow though.
I better do my part and post a new 83 FHP picture tonight!

I parked a FB group years ago......SpecialServiceMustang.net. I have no problem publishing it and creating another venue to hang out and socialize. However, I agree with what Bill posted. I'd like to continue to see this place exist and remain relevant. I think because of the VIN project, and the focus we maintain here on researching the cars, we will continue to do so.

On the other hand, the FB groups are a free-for-all and there's a ton of misinformation and ridiculousness (not the cool MTV show) going on there.

Opinions are welcome.

I volunteer to be the negative nelly. I see so much ignorance on FB with parades, light shows, modded out cars, misinformation and on and on and on and on that I grit my teeth at least once a day. This forum exists because of the need to isolate said ignorance years ago. In this environment it can be controlled and I say we leave it as it is and navigate Facecrap at our own peril. This forum doesn't require 50 posts a day to be relevant and I am of the opinion the grass growing on social media is mostly crabgrass.....

ANYONE that has an SSP or has a friend with an SSP car is well aware of this place. If not they are easily directed here via our input on FB.

The best part of FB is that I just block the douchebags of yesteryear and roll on.

Too much vitriol on those Facebook pages from Trolls and Johnny Come Lately and not enough clamping down on those people. Too interested in approving everyone who wants into them just to increase "member counts" while dumbing down the dialogue and increasing misinformation. It's dizzying, sometimes. Successful forums, don't put up with that stuff. I think that "space" has room for an SSP focused page, that seeks to differentiate itself from the pack by having the discipline of a forum like this. Just my 2 cents.

Default Possible salvaged SSP

I found this on Copart, looks like it could be an 88 GSP car but the door tag doesn't show the GSP paint codes.

Vin 1FABP40E9JF225805.

It is a GSP.

Ford did not put 'Special Paint' codes on the door tag until the 1989 model year.

RE: the above post...not sure if others are having same problem. I can see the Title pic, but not the Car pic you appear to have attached. Before the Craigslist Ad expires, here are is the info and a few pics (I'll retain these for a few days, so an Admin can save and move them, before deleting as I have limited photo attachment capacity on this Forum)...

Default Great News!

Our VIN Project technical issues are behind us, and we are "back in business". As a tease, here is a new addition to the Project -

1993 SSP - Greenwood County Sheriff's Dept


More to come!
