Moparstyle.com For Sale

19 Year Old Mopar Web Forum with Large Member Roster

I started this site on January 1, 2000 and at one time it was very active and had high sponsorship. My racing schedule caused me to neglect the site and activity dropped. Some fresh blood with fresh ideas and the time to call vendors to buy “Pay for View” or “Pay for Click” banners could soon have the site very active again, and very profitable.

This sale could include any or all of the following options:

  • The domain name
  • The perpetual Vbulletin License
  • The existing membership of the forum
  • A year of premium web hosting on a fast and secure server, including automatic backing up site each night and retaining multiple copies of backups
  • All of the old forum posts, or start off with a clean sheet with a fresh install of VB
  • eMail notification to all of the members of the new ownership and your message to them
  • Upgrading to most current version of Vbulletin (or fresh Install)
  • Changing look & Feel, colors and graphics to your design specs
  • Changing the forum structure to your plan
  • Installation and integration of a banner serving application that allows you to generate sponsor revenue through “pay per view” or “pay per click” rotation banners, with different priority serving and full reporting to administrator and/or sponsor
  • Installation and/or setup of a Word Press as a front door to the forum with or without graphics work EXAMPLE
  • Installation and setup of a Classified Ad web site which can be linked with Front Door and Forum Sites EXAMPLE
  • Installation and setup of a photo album application where members can each have access to upload event photos into its sub album EXAMPLE
  • Installation and setup of a wiki. Example
  • A set number of hours for setup and configuration, or per hour help
  • A set number of support phone calls and per call (if needed) thereafter
  • Act as your Hosting Administrator or not
  • Act as your Forum Administrator or not
  • You tell me what else you want

So who would this be a great opportunity for?

  • Any person or group of persons who loves Mopars and has always wanted to build a better Mopar Commu ity than what’s out there
  • Any vendor with a product or service used by Mopar owners, wanting the Goodwill and audience that a site like this could bring them if properly ran. Admittedly, I didn’t run it well.
  • A Mopar club or organization, or collection of organizations wanting to become more dominant in the Mopar Fan sector
  • Any person or group of persons not liking the way they’ve been treated on another forum, and wants to crush them with a better mousetrap.
  • An entrepreneur willing to dedicate the time required to build the site into the One-Stop place to go for all things Mopar and aggressively market “Pay for View” or “Pay for Click” banners
  • Any Combination of the above
  • ???

The price is really based on how much of my time you need. Outside of the Vbulletin application, other applications are free public licenses – but take a little time to install and set up to your specs. They also require more server space. If you’re a computer and graphics whiz who requires no help with set-up and maintaining ( or know that guy) – then you’d only be buying the domain name, VB license, the existing member roster, installation of other apps (if wanted) and hosting – but not my labor. Don’t want hosting as you’ll transfer to another host. Even less!

If you are interested, email me at DaveTheOldHippie @ Gmail.com with what it is you’re interested in, and I’ll shoot you back a price.

Redesign of This Web Site

A much over-due freshening up of the MoparStyle Racing web site has just occurred. Some of the changes include:

  • Gone to a Blog Format from a Page Format. When you visit the site you will see posts on what’s going on, with the newest at the top.
  • In the right sidebar, you will see the last five posts from each of four related web sites. There will be a lead in to the post and a link to click for the whole story and photos. Clicking the link will take you away from this site to that site, so it will require clicking Back to move backwards. Consider bookmarking this site.
  • On the Topbar and the Left Sidebar you will find a menu system that will either take you to another page to this site, to the For Sale sub site, to an appropriate and on-topic Facebook Pages/Groups, or to a couple of other Kool web Sites. Again, to not waste your computer’s memory by opening a bunch of new pages, you will move directly to that site or page. Your browser’s back button is your friend.

The Internet redesign portion of this site is a work in progress, but it is a priority, and you’ll see soon. Bookmark this site to keep up with our racing, the building and changes to the cars, items for sale (which is always kept up to date), and Internet Services provided.

Brochure Design

Brochure Design

DDS Enterprises, Inc. now provides a cost effective brochure graphics design service for business.

click the graphics above or below to see full size page examples of a 2-sided Tri-Fold brochure

http://www.ddsenterprise.com/images/banners-inside550px.jpg

There are many on-line discount printing services that can produce high quality business brochures on a variety of page sizes, variety of paper qualities, and a variety of fold types for about 10% of the price a local printer would charge you a few years back. For instance you can order 5,000 Z-Fold 2-sided brochures on 100lb coated stock from Got Print for $265.89. The catch is that you need to submit the artwork in the appropriate format, which most do not have the tools or talent to do.

This is where DDS Enterprises can help.

For $199.00 in most situations, DDS will take your ideas and acceptable graphics and create the appropriate artwork that can be submitted to on-line printers to discount printers like Got Print or Vista Print.

Special Word Press Hosting Offer

Word Press Plus Hosting Sale

$149 Year*

For a limited time, Big Kahuna Hosting will not only provide 1 year's web hosting with its "Deluxe Package" on a Premium web server, but we also will install Word Press for you and upgrade it to the most current version.

So what can you do with a Word Press Site? Click the below thumbnails to see some of the current Word Press Sites hosted on a Big Kahuna Hosting server, and get an idea of the wide variety of uses of a Word Press web site.

Word Press sites can be used as a personal blogs or a business web site; a site for a team, cause or organization; or just about anything else you've seen a web site used for. While the layout of the above sites are very similar because the author of them is the same, and he keeps them consistent so that he can more easily maintain, you really have a lot of flexibility with layout and the look & feel.

Don't let something you don't currently know intimidate you.

Once installed (and we handle all of that), you don't need to know a lick of programming code to adjust the look and feel of the site, or to add context to it. The look and feel is as simple as selecting one of the thousands of "Themes" — and clicking install. Features are added with "Plugins". Select the plugins you want from 1,000s — and click install.

When the Word Press operating software, a plugin, or a theme has been updated by the author — you are notified of the update in your control panel. Updating is as simple as clicking the update button. Adding pages (including the formatting of text and including images) are as simple as posting to a forum. Rearranging the sidebar widgets and menu order is as simple as dragging and dropping where you want them. There are forums for Word Press help all over the Internet — including the Big Kahuna Hosting forums.

So here is what you get for your $149:

  • 1-Year hosting on a Premium Server

  • 10-Email Addresses

  • 5 MySql Databases (1 will be used for Word Press; leaving 4 for Forums, photo albums, etc.)

  • 5 Subdomains (few use sub-domains so don't let that confuse you)

  • 5 Parked Domains. (For instance you can park the domains myurl.net and myurl.org on your domain myurl.com; and all three addresses will get you to the same web site)

  • 5 FTP access accounts

  • 15GB a month bandwidth (more than enough for 99% of the web sites on the net)

  • 3GB files space

In addition to being a satisfying hobby or full-filling your need for a web site, these are easy to obtain skills that once mastered can earn you a decent income — or your site can generate income through advertising banners (if it is popular enough).

The Steps to building your own Word Press site are:

  1. Decide on a domain name and register it, which will cost less than $10 a year. I started in the web business by registering my personal name in 1994. That's a good starting point if you want to learn the skills to create web sites at your own pace, but are not yet sure what your ultimate goal is.

  2. Sign up for Word Press web hosting at the bottom of this page.

  3. Log onto your admin dashboard to set up any email addresses you want to use for your new domain.

  4. Log into your Word Press Admin and choose the theme and Plugins you want to use.

  5. Tweak the Look and Feel of the Word Press site.

  6. Add text to your pages and posts.

If you have any questions, see if they've been asked and answered on the Big Kahuna Hosting board — and if not post it there. Or seek help from the thousands of forums dedicated to Word Press users or the Word Press site.

Use the below to sign up for a Year to Year Word Press subscription through PayPal. The subscription can be cancelled at anytime and your hosting will continue until the end of your 365 day term, but you will not be grandfathered in the special price for future years.

Your Registered Domain Name
Your Contact email

Notes:

  1. This is a Special Sale (not advertised on the Big Kahuna Hosting site) for the visitors of this site, which can be pulled at any time.

  2. Those who take advantage of the sale will be grandfathered into this sale price so long as they don't cancel the subscription

  3. The normal Set Up charge of $25 will be waived for this Special Offer.

  4. Word Press requires the use of one of the five MySql Databases.

  5. While Big Kahuna Hosting will create the database and database user, install Word Press on your hosting account, and update to the most current version — it is up to the user to complete their web site. This is not for a turn-key web site.

  6. All Word Press support will be provided through posting in the forums, so that all will benefit from the questions and their answers. Specifically, Word Press support will NOT be provided through Private Messaging, email, or telephone.
