Default Time to open news to the masses?

Hey guys and girls!

What do you think - is the community active enough at this point to open up a news section run by our members? How many of us regularly read outside car news and would enjoy sharing it here formally?

Please share your thoughts.

I say we've got enough peeps for a hybrid between what we have now and what OCN has, but I don't know for sure if we have enough members to go fully self-sufficient with news.

It'd be worth a shot, though.

1985 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci OHV inline six | 4-speed OD manual | 310K | No power brakes | Running 100% - It hasn't driven this good in 15 years!

1984 Ford F150 | 4x2 | 300ci six | granny four | 3.55 rear end | 210K | Brakes shot. Rear drums are doing most of the work. Not fit to drive due to that.
1997 Ford Explorer XLT | 4.0L Vulcan V6 | 5-speed automatic | shift-on-the-fly 4WD | 210,000 miles | Running 95% - Needs brakes on all four corners + bald tires
1989 Ford F150 | 300cid six...again | 5-speed | 4x4 | 160K | Needs brakes done as well. Oi!

Huuummm. I'm not on as much as I used to be but I do read a lot of news at work while I'm sitting doing nothing all day. I'd say let's make it happen.

I'd be interested in reading more articles to say the least. I don't do much during the day.

I think we could do it

The current system glitches a lot anyway.

I read the news section here and at OCN all the time while I'm at work. It's good information, but I'm not sure how much activity would be needed to keep the news flowing.
