With regard to closing down of all the "other makes" sections, this link suggests it happened in October 2007.

Does the archive of the old forum still exist somewhere? Even as only an Excel or text file? I used to run a forum myself (Phantom comics), and had the same problem when I needed to do a major software upgrade in September 2003. I kept the archive on the server as an Excel file with filters so it was still semi-readable. Would this be an option Dave?

Guran, there's actually few if any posts that pre-date late Nov 2005 currently on here, & it's been that way for a few years. From memory there was a crash in 2007 & that's we lost the 2003-2005 data.
