    Thanks Guys..


    $1-49 is listed as "contributor" $50-$99 is "major contributor" and $100 or over is listed as "Premier contributor"

    We have in the past recieved contributions from $5 to $500.. any amount that you may wish to contribute is welcomed and appreciated.


    This is a user supported board for the most part, my company, Tri-Shield Performance, picks up the tab for the discrepancy of operating costs VS contributions. User support comes in the form of paypal and snail mail payments, sent to either our mail address which is:

    V8 Buick.com
    3001 Upton Ave N
    Mpls, MN 55411

    Or to our paypal address:


    Currently this board with it's dedicated server costs TSP several hundred dollars per month to run. We could host it cheaper probably, but there would be a reduction in up time, and the speed at which the board runs for everyone, and that is not acceptable to us here at TSP. The databases and bandwith used to run a board the size of V8Buick.com is staggeringly large, and that differs greatly from what it takes to run many smaller boards that you see out there. There would also be a reduction in support from our hosting company if we tried to go with some "cheapy plan" .. Been there, done that, and we are very happy with our current host. Our up time in the last six months has been nearly 100%.

    We are very grateful here at TSP for the level of support that has existed in the past by the community, and look forward to providing this board for eveyone to enjoy for years to come.

    I can honestly say if not for the support of the Buick community on this board through information, parts availability, performance tips, and general camaraderie, I would have given up on my car a long time ago. Truly the best auto-oriented board on the net. Here is a bit of fiancial help and a sincere thanks to you Jim.
