    Hi Gang,

    This is a list of all contributors to the site, for 2007. Due to the recent upgrades and increase in equipment and hosting fees, our projected cost for the site for 07 are right about $5200.. just like our cars, speed costs!

    We had a good financial year in '06, with donations covering about 80% of the costs, but recent increases have lead me to wrestle with possible vendor charges, and other ways to create revenue to make sure the site stays financially solvent. I have never wanted to impose any fees here, and while my company (TSP) has always picked up the slack, I am hoping that we can raise enough money thru contributions so we an leave the site exactly as it is, and has always been. A free source for enthusiasts and vendors alike, to trade information and parts, to further the hobby.

    And with your continued help, we can do just that.

    This year, we have added a donate button to the toolbar, which appears on the top of every screen, for direct paypal donations. Or directly thru your paypal account, you can donate to jim@trishieldperf.com.

    If you would like to mail a check or MO, please make it out to V8buick.com and send to the following address.

    V8buick.com
    1056 McKinley ST
    Anoka, MN 55303

    Thanks everyone!

    JW

    PS.. our contribution year listing is from Dec 1 2006, thru Nov 30 2007

    I believe this truly is a great web site for Buick owners and a contribution is definitely a small price to pay. Thanks for all the great work in putting this all together. I will be sending a check today.

    I will match .25 to the dollar up to $100 dollars for your donation. This button is easy to access only 2 moves right from the User CP button. I did this pledge on my own. because I believe. I do believe we all got a buck and a stamp. Give a try:3gears:

    Thanks for your help in this Jim.. I am getting closer to having to make a decsion on allowing some form of advertising on the site here, which I don't want to do.. but I figured I would throw out the numbers, and see if we could raise it, and your certainly helping that goal.

    I will update the list and totals at the end of the month.
