"Classic RWD Impala" site

There have been a lot of new registrations looking for help for their late model FWD Impalas. We need two things: first, an updated site banner that says something like "Impalas.net: your home for classic RWD Impalas from the 50s to the 70s (or 80s or 90s, but other sites have those covered). Second, when someone registers, there should be a part that tells them if they have a FWD Impala from the 2000s, they need to go to http://www.w-body.com/forum.php

Two doors, four doors, wagons, and ragtops.

Thank you for your suggestion, this is something we can work to setting up. I will forward this over to our development team to create a new banner for the site. We can have some member's Impalas on the top banner to showcase them. In regards of the FWD Impalas, we rather not re-direct users to http://www.w-body.com/ to which we do not own the site. We can certainly create multiple sub sections for FWD Impalas to cater the FWD Impala community as well.

Apologies, thought that forum was owned by Autoguide as well.

Please, PLEASE, don't create new sections for FWD cars. You already own a forum like that: http://www.impalaforums.com/forum.php I'll happily redirect FWD owners there.

Keep this place focused on classic Impalas. Stop trying to be everything to everyone. You will lose membership if the core message of this place becomes diluted.

Well said. We have NOTHING in common with the front wheel drive Impala following. There would be no point in trying to mix that together, kind of like water and oil...!
