Thanks for the word Astro.

This is, by far, the best auto forum on the net. I've joined a few others recently to suppliment my other Honda. It's both frustrating and reassuring that no other site can represent like AZ.

We need a slogan... like..

AcuraZine. Fin free since 1969.

Congrats astro and soopa. AZ is a great forum and apparently others think so too. I hope that it continues to be so for many many years.

Buying my ack: $10,000
Modding it: $$$$$$$
Finding Acurazine: Priceless

Definitely my favorite place on the web and the detriment to my workday, thanks to you Astro and Soopa for making it what it is, and on getting some big-ass company to buy what you built! Me and the guys in Minneapolis will have a beer in your name this weekend at our mini-meet.

Can't wait to rep with a sticker! -you should make a version with the Acurzine logo and a small "powered by Astro" underneath lol.

I wonder if the new owners will agree with the reasoning behind exlcuding forums for past Acura models and demand they be made. If the purpose of the acquisition is to control a network of people based around a brand or product as oposed to having a community of like minds then excluding the RSX because their drivers are undesirable mudbloods no longer fits with the forum's mission.

NOTE: If you get faster servers then please for the love of God increase the search limit to something more reasonable than 60 seconds. I'm a pro, I can determine if I need to modify my search much quicker than that.

Very happy for the success of the old owners. A little concerned for for the rest of us. This has been a great forum. I look forward to it continuing with only positive changes.

Good Luck Soopa. Take care of us Astro.

Congrats on the hard work and dedication of the admins and moderators who had kept this site going from day one. With this acquisition, I hope this site will be bigger and better in a good way.

Congrats guys! I have been around for a bit and neither astro or soopa have ever let the site down so I wouldn't worry about it changing too much.

Speaking of change, anyone remember 260hp.com or something along those lines way back when before acura-cl.com and AZ?

Hope there's not many changes in store. I've learned so much from reading the forums here. Good luck to the staff and everyone else with hands on involvement with the change!

Congrats! I really believe with the back bone of a corporate organization this site will only thrive. Best of luck soopa and continue to do what you do best Astro. I'd like to thank everyone involved to get the deal done and glad to hear their won't be any significant changes. So let's hear a ballpark figure of what the purchase price was , it would be interesting to know what the financial value of this community is worth!

Save your PMs to your computer and clean yours out more often. 50 is enough
