Hardly any of the pages work unfortunately. It'd be nice to have some of those rumor threads back from way back when. Edit: the thread where we were granted media access works, too bad some other sites broke embargoes and now we don't have it anymore :(

Whoops... I just noticed that the dates are a bit before my time. Kind of overlooked that as first sight. Still brings back memories, though... like the disabled right click... :P But yeah, joined December 28th, 2003. So... it's about a year too early.

As far as I know the next Grand Am will have the 2.2l Ecotec, perhaps the 170hp 2.4l, the 3.2l Ecotec V6 (at least 220hp), a new Fiat-GM 6-speed manual and Aisin-AW 5-speed autos (at least the AF33-5 used in the Saturn Vue and the Vectra). Later on it might get one of the new generation of GM 6-speed autos still in development and the new 2.8l Ecotec V6.

Whatever happened to this?!?!? Damn... cost cutting, once again, took its effects...

If I remember correctly I didn't officially joined the boards until the board prior to this one. I just skimmed and scanned through this one.

True that...

I can't see the page (Damn work software) but if the dates here are right I would've been celebrating a year at CheersandGears right around that time.

I miss those days...

We were all a lot closer, naturally, because we were smaller. I was less negative, the news about GM was nothing but positives.

I'd love to be able to foster that sort of environment here but it's too hard, unless we changed things in a MAJOR way.

FOG, the forum obviously isnt the same, but you gotta admit there is good news comin out of GM right now. Come on look at the new 900s, the hybrid systems suppsedly in development, the Solstice, the new Impala, the HHR, the Camaro which may come out, and RWD.

Though there is a cloud of bad news with Delphi and the other stuff out there, I think GM has good product and a promising future if it stays on track.

I agree there is a lot of good news now. It's almost as if we hit the trough and now we're back on the upswing, but we're not there yet.

And just as an aside, I wasn't trying to sound condescending about our current forum, we have a great group of people. I just miss the closeness that the site had back then. I think the reason we don't have that so much now is a product of a lot of things; negative times for GM, more people in the loop, for me personally, not spending as much time here.

For example; I remember when a new member would come on board back then one of the mods would always either start a thread or post a reply welcoming that person, then we would all chime in. The family vibe, part of what made/makes this place great and something that needs to be thought off more often by us all (Me and a few others especially)

Even it's only been about two years since I joined, I definitely remember how different it was then. Alot nicer and friendlier... although, that going away could be my fault. Most likely my fault. But my excuse is the endless amount of negative news there was and still is. Also because I'm just messed up that way... :P

I don't remember being welcomed like that, but I remember seeing it for others and chiming in.

You really shouldn't be so down on yourself. I'm hypercritical, and I can't really see it.
