True, but the downside is there are several different softwares
running forums so what you learn on one may not work on the other.
Plus, it seems like some of the authors of forum software have no idea
what "usability" means and can make finding a simple search box and
Easter egg hunt.

It's good to be remembered fondly, and not fondling...

Any more, I feel like an outsider. No more Mustangs for me... But the Ford
Focus newsgroup is even DEADER than this one. AND, damned if I can find any
decent Focus apparel. Mustangs, sure, you've got your pick of jackets, T's,
whatever. Focus....eh... not so much.

Half my damn wardrobe still says Mustang on it.

Although I'm replying to a nearly 4 year old post on an ancient newsgroup (is "ancient newsgroup" redundant?), do you still have the Skylark GS 455?

And here I am replying to your reply... months later.

I don't have the GS455 anymore. The black 71 was sold is 2002, IIRC. I did pick up $300 Skylark with a blown 350 around 2005. I had a 455 that went into it. I never got it finished though. I put some really good heads/intake on it along with a trans with a stall somewhere in the mid 2000's. It still had the original 2.56 open rear in it. I drove it to the drag strip with some straight pipe into 3" Dynomax mufflers. With the rear and stall converter, I had to drive in 2nd gear (TH400, I think). It was a stock block with the heads/intake/Holley 850/headers. It went 13.50 @ 106 mph, crossing the line still in 2nd gear. But the 1-2 shift point was higher than it should have been and a bearing was spun.

A friend who set up the engine swap, had the motor rebuilt with some .030 pistons I had, a better cam, and he had the heads ported. But I never got it finished. I ended up selling it to another friend who has a GS400 that needed a motor. Then he sold the body to the guy who done all the work to build something for his son.

I'm always on the lookout for something, but it hasn't been a priority. I'd love to get back on the track. I did, however, get to do the Xtreme Xperience down in NOLA in 2016. Drove a Lamborghini Gallardo and a Ferrari 458 around their big track. I didn't see the speed on the straight in the Gallardo, but the instructor figured about 140mph. In the 458, I saw the needle sweep past 145 while I was still in it.

So there ya go...
