  • Happy 8 Year Anniversary of Michigan FBody

    Eight years ago the site was started on a simple "Why doesn't Michigan have our own FBody site when other states do?" 8 years later, 2500 members, tons of bandwidth per month, etc. It's amazing what we all have built here. I know I've said it in the past, but it needs to be said again -- anyone can throw a forum on the internet and hope it does well. But it's everyone on here that makes it home, that makes us all a second family. I never thought 8 years ago that I would find a second family here, but Angie and I definitely have, and it's one of the most rewarding parts about this site. Just like any other site, we have our drama and our disagreements - but I challenge everyone to compare us to any other forum out there and ask if they're as close knit as we are or if they have as little drama as we do. As a lot of you know and experienced first hand - 2012 was very challenging and we lost great friends last year. The latter portion of the year was very hard for Angie and I, but you guys on here are one of the main reasons why Angie and I didn't lose our sanity. Angie jokes about how we have no private life - that our lives are played out on Mifbody, and to a lesser extent on Facebook, but having such a strong support network on here helped us through our hard times immensely. I try not to brag too much about the site here and what we have, but you guys make me proud to be the one who started the site, and I hope you all are proud of our home here and take ownership of what we've built too. Again - without you all, we'd just be a boring blip on the internet.

    Happy 8 Year Anniversary to Michigan FBody, and let's hope 2013 is a better year for all of us.

    • 2017 Meet & Greet - Supporting a new charity: International FPIES Foundation
      by meissen
      As some of you may know, about a year ago Angie and I moved to New Haven, MI - about 30 miles northeast of Detroit. In the past year, we've met a lot of great neighbors and one of them has a very unique story. The couple who live across the street from us have a son named Elliott who is battling two extremely rare conditions. First, he has what's called "FPIES" which essentially means he has an allergic reaction any time he ingests proteins found in food. Problem is - the protein is found in almost...

    • Happy Birthday MiFBody!
      by meissen
      11 years ago today our little chunk of the internet was born. Y'all know I'm a sentimental emotional guy, and this website has admittedly been one of my proudest achievements. What we have here means a lot to me - it's why I'm so passionate when it comes to trying to maintain the peace and kumbaya. This site is our spot to shoot the shit with fellow Camaro and Firebird cruisers and to get help and advice - whether it's on their car or personal lives. I know we rag on eachother a bit here and there,...
