Last week the "normal" Australian forum aussiemagna.com has seemingly closed down.

I don't know if this is a temporary situation or not, but I wanted to put it out there to other Australian members that we might need to start another forum if the original one does not restart soon.

This forum seemed to be the logical place to keep in contact with others like myself who are potentially at a loss as to know how to maintain the knowledge base built up over the years.

My 2004 TL Magna(Diamante equivalent - except for the All Wheel Drive option that my car has) does everything that I want, and I was intending to keep it going for a lot longer yet, at least until it was 20 years old.

It has had a 6g75 transplant, and significant replacement of suspension and steering components, so it drives very well.

I started my own due to being sick of the place run just to promote the owners wrecking yard.
Losing everything cause an admin throws a tantrum is...inconvenient.

Thanks for this link to the 380 forum.

My TL AWD has a 380/6g75 transplant, so I might join.

Hi,
Another new member here from aus.
I was trying to search up aussiemagna.com and noticed it was down, and found this forum & thread instead.

I thought I'd mention I have a partial backup of the forum from 2016-05-06 - it's a bit old and not 100% complete - it's of the Technical Forums only, and not all images are saved, but if it helps anyone out I could upload it somewhere:
Only issue is it's too big for any hosting I have, ~250MB compressed for text (html) only, triple that for the partial set of images I saved.

This is a good reminder to make backups of some other forums for old cars i'm interested in, as all these discussions are valuable and prone to disappear with little/no notice.

Hi fiveseven,

Thanks for your response.

It now looks like Mitsfix/Mal R/Madmagna is not going to be active in keeping the AMC forum going.

I look forward to obtaining the backup material that you have, as it will be very helpful in keeping my Magna running.

Kind regards,

John/Leadfoot6

Hey mate you will recognise me from AMC. Yes Mal shut the forum down sadly I have recently registered here also. He said I could get a copy of the database and have asked a couple of times now with no reply. I am missing it already :)

Hi Rod,

Thanks for your reply.

You have a VRX I believe?

I need to try to do whatever is necessary to keep the AMC database intact, but I don't know as where to go from here.

I know of him.

His workshop did my 380 conversion 3 years ago, but he was away the week that was done.

I dealt with "Brendan", who did everything 100%.

I can't seem to contact Mal, by whatever means I try.

Yeah I've tried him on messenger. I did get a response before christmas but not now
I will be placing an order for some parts before he moves them on via his Rhiatech store (parts have been removed from Ebay). He said he is now focussing on trailers. Had enough of the d##*&(s apparently
