Just wanted to let everyone know that as of 08/01/2010 Autobuffs will no longer be a vendor on this forum.
We will still be on other forums as a supporting vendor but as we weigh our options in this hard economy this forum isn't generating enough business to justify the quarterly cost here.
Thanks for all the sales and friends we have made and please give us a call or email us if you need anything.

Hate to see AutoBuffs leave the forum, but I understand that financials drive business decisions. Best of luck to you and the company.

We're sad to see you leave. It's sad what this forum has come to when an established, respectable business cannot even afford to advertise here. It's ok though, we can all sleep better at night knowing that IB is probably serving caviar and champagne at a company sponsored party on a yacht somewhere.

I must say I have to agree...I was a tad bit shocked at how high the monthly rent was to become a supporting vendor. Welcome to the corporate money hungry world I guess. Sad to see you go Autobuffs....good luck with your business where ever you go.

I'm not involved in advertising sales, so I don't consider myself to be an expert, but I know enough about it to know the premise stated above is specious.

The value of advertising on any Internet site is based on the volume of traffic it has. I believe if you would check the facts, you'd see that Corvetteforum provides advertisers more exposure to potential customers than any other community for Corvette enthusiasts.

Despite that, the rates at some other sites are similar to those charged here.
