Every year the Calibra gets rarer and the likelihood of members signing up diminishes.

If we had nothing but technical threads and projects there would be a lot less site traffic.

We all hate too much spam but we do need some to generate traffic.

I wouldn't worry mate, in a few years time you will be a mod on some Astra turbo site, i will be planning some shows and get togethers on a beamer site and .com amd .net will end up as ghoust towns .................  ;D

I might apply for the position of the local ghost buster in that case :)

Nooooo! Long live the Calibra and all it's sites! They seem big in Europe and Aus etc, they will live on :)

Would it be right to say that this is a natural progression and maybe its just hard for some people to admit it. As stated already, Calibras are getting much more scarce and will only continue to over the years.  Its ClubCalibra so its focus is obvious but there can be no harm in opening the door a little wider

to be honest, with the number of people making track cars on here and also with the link between several members on here with other forums such as vauxsport, i can see this site expanding in the coming years to encompass both well maintained rare calibras and their counterparts in other forms with closer ties to other sites.

One down, one to go in that case :P (sorry, couldn't help myself)

ClubCalibra will be around for a long long time in some shape/form - there are specific sites for old Escorts, Beatles, and other models that survive even with a minimal fanbase.

Especially as there seems to be talk of a new one in the works.
Whether it be good, or bad.

Seeing as you have never even heard of a Monaro you ain't got no chance of seeing a new Calibra !

Thats f*cking hideous!

If they call it the Calibra, why stick an Astra badge on the back of it? Thats more likely to be the Astra Coupe!

That story and pic has been doing the rounds for over 18 months, The concept has been on paper and hasn't gone any further.

Like they say - Seeing is believing  :)
