By David Greenlees: After six and a half years of being published daily with a total of 3,951 articles and a total of over 16,250 photos, The Old Motor needs an overhaul of the site software and content which will take 5 to 7 days. Consider this just a short summer shut down for a ring and valve job. The website is a one-man band, so to do a site tune up and an update, I need to stop the presses, adjust some of the parts, and grease the wheels of the site software.
In the meantime, during the shutdown, you can look back and view thousands of articles and photographs in store here that are sure to interest you. Click on the light grey “Categories” box near the top of the column of ads on the far-right. You can view all of the different types of articles some offered in various time periods. At the end of a visit, save the page by using the bookmark section of your computer to make it easy to find your place when you return.
We regret any inconvenience to you during the shutdown, and The Old Motor will back online with new content as soon as possible. In the meantime leave a comment on this post about your automotive interests and what you would like to see added to the site.
