  • Happy 10th BDay to Michigan FBody

    It's amazing how much can happen in only 10 years. I know many have heard this story numerous times, but 10 years ago today I was sitting in my parents' basement noticing there were "Wisconsin FBody Associations" and "North East FBody Association" and "Arizona FBody Association" but not one unified FBody website for Michigan. Instead, we were left to chat in the Great Lakes forums on the various websites like CamaroZ28 and LS1Tech. After creating websites on GeoCities and graduating to having my own personal domain ( which my classmates and I used in HS to play arcade games during computer class, on a whim I created a PHP-Nuke website named "Michigan FBody" and watched in amazement as the registrations flooded in.

    10 years later and a lot has changed. Although people come and go, the friendships built really do last. I know I always get sentimental on everyone, but I really do consider everyone here my extended family -- even if we argue, bicker, or troll eachother's threads. At the end of the day, we're all here for the same purpose - we love Camaros and Firebirds and want somewhere to call "home" to chat with others in our area. Well, maybe that's not everyone's reason for being here, but at least I hope the latter is true -- having some place to call home where you can come on here and catch up with friends, hang out on Woodward or 28th Street or wherever and make new friends in the process.

    10 years ago today I was an immature little punk living in his parents' basement - today I'm an immature fatass married to a beautiful and loving wife and raising a child of our own. 10 years ago, Red Alert was just coming together - it wasn't until August 2005 that all the pieces came together and she received the paint job she wears today. A 3.4L v6 ricer, now a 357ci LT1 ricer. Seriously though... a lot has changed, but this website still remains here as a place to call home.

    Admittedly I'm behind and need to get to J's Silkscreen to get this all setup, but to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of our humble abode here, I had @C2YT design a 10th anniversary T-Shirt honoring Michigan FBody. I really think it turned out bad ass and can't wait to get shirts printed. I need to talk to J's to see what they say about colors for the shirt -- since it's only going to be run for this year alone, I might stick to only a few colors. We'll see what the pros say when I take the design to them

    To everyone here on the site, my extended family, thank you for making Michigan FBody "home" for myself and others. I always say it, anyone can make a website and hope for members, but it's you guys on the site who make this place what it is.

    Happy BDay Michigan FBody!

    • 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,...
