Hello, I always wonder what happened with old cal-look.com database since the forum closed. If the backup exists, wouldn´t it be nice to have it somewhere as a source of information which is now long time gone? With contribution from people who are not with us anymore? It would be a great blast from the past but also an amazing source of informatio and fun. Does anybody on here know the owners of the old forum personally?

I'm still in touch with JP. He still has the 67 and a early 911.

That web.archive.org page is a real timewaster! Just spent ages looking at long abandoned pages I set up 16 years ago!  Cheesy

Remember, once you put it on the interweb, you lost ownership of it.

After it shut down, I offered to host it as a closed readonly copy for free, as a source for information, pictures etc. But it didn't happen. I agree it would have been nice to have.
