Was the old content on datsun.co.nz copied to the new site nzdatsun.com? If not was an archive made?
All registered users were emailed, and informed of the impending shutdown. Thus giving everyone the chance to retrieve what they wanted from that site. I transposed all the old events pics etc to the past meets forun at NZdatsun.
I don't know if anyone took the whole lot or not. Relations with the webmaster of the old site became somewhat strained after he mismanaged the site, and it went down for almost half a year. In it's absence a new (Supposed to be temporary) site was set up to help every one keep in touch. His (Then) partner (Now wife) went off the deep end and abused the guy who set up the site by email and MSN to the point where he had to block her. In the time that followed NZdatsun took over as the more dominant site. Glen and goergie have since sold up and moved to Aussie. It's kinda sad really. When I 1st met Glen he had an almost unrivaled passion for datsuns. But as time wore on he seemed to lose it.
