This isn't good news, I like most others have had nothing but a good experience of being a member here, the info provided by Guy has been priceless to say the least, irreplaceable Id add, so to see this happening makes me sad and that's an understatement.
Its be a tragedy if this site went the way of many others and I hope it can be saved.

Best wishes, Tony.

Dear all,
My name is Steven and anyone who looks at the web site can find my posting name as Wal.

I run a rat rodded Morris Minor that had a normally aspirated Guy Croft Twin Cam for which I have, almost, completed the install of for a Guy Croft Volumex Twin Cam.

I am truly sorry to hear the news about Guy and have personal proof his engines are simply awesome, I’m proud I have them in my car(s).

There are some beautifully engineered cars on this site backed by people who have skills I can only envy. I am not engineer trained, and basically have learnt everything from either my father or by trial and error, which is why my car is never the prettiest. However, what I do know is my Morris Minor has the most awesome engine and there is nothing of the same level that can live with it. This is why I am grateful to Guy, not only for the build of my engines but the time he and the contributors to this web site have spent explaining every question I have. I love looking at the truly incredible cars and knowledge that you all have, please let’s not lose that.

So, with regard to the crux of the issue I would love to maintain this website for the knowledge it has and the knowledge it can offer in the future as a tribute to Guy. Which leaves a question:
1) Who else is prepared to actually put up real money to keep the best engine web site alive – I am?
2) Are you happy that I try and run the web site in the manner in which it was formed though I cannot offer anything like the level of technical knowledge Guy has and am entirely dependent on the goodwill of the best engine and car builders I have seen?

Please contact me by private message if you are serious and will commit real money or just want to lose in a race against a Morris Minor.

Regards,
Wal
