Coopman———Thank you so much for that valuable information. I have not seen that elsewhere. And please don’t be discouraged by those that would prefer to stay un-informed. If you come across other good info, please send our way.

We are in lockdown and doing our best. The No.1 priority is to try and avoid the health service being totally overwhelmed.

The information should be everywhere, so the most isolated people become aware.

If you have already seen it, no problem, just skip over it.

In my entire life I have never experienced anything like this.

I hope we all can stay safe and healthy and if everyone is sensible we stand the best chance of getting through this.

Me too. Coopman's post was not political, just factual. I, for one, greatly appreciated his post.

Thanks Coopman. Most of us followers are in the COVID-19 susceptible range whether we are junior or senior members due to our ages.
Mal-contents come in all shapes and sizes as witnessed. I see a number of posts on this forum that don't interest me and have the moxy to move on without negativity, others I find valuable and enjoy, wish others could do the same.

Is there some where else on the 'net where I can read this same info that coopman shared. Certainly I could go there and read it without muddying up the fordbarn. I will continue to get my early v8 info from the FB but I would always like to read stuff relating to this health emergency that might be recommended by sane and stable members of our society. I like to think of vintage ford collectors as 'regular working Americans'. And who better than a guy who uses Sky King's plane in his avatar.

I read a post on here a couple of months back describing the "Ford bugs" which are found on windows...

But way more seriously up here in BC we got on this rather quickly and apparently as of last week we had tested more people than the entire US. But we are still undergoing social distancing needs "stay at home!" edicts. Perhaps this virus will make the world realize that we should try to work together on important things rather than bitching and fighting about rather meaningless things.

Link is pretty accurate and open to all. Day to day. I'm okay with a shut down for now. If you are into numbers and testing, it's decent. More tests mean we can get some idea of what's going on. Test and get people off to work again. Numbers will speak for them self. Be some weird stuff if every country on the planet shuts down from a fake thing. I'll eat or serve crow later. I'd rather eat crow on this one.... or as the saying goes. I do prefer ribeye beef.

Hi all NZ is in total lockdown now for 4 weeks at least but i know it is likely to be longer from what i have heard. I'm sorry Coopman you copped this flack it is a serious issue, one I hope the world can learn from and take on board when this is over.

On a lighter note without being crass or intending to offend. Ozzie Osbourne "once upon a time you could eat a raw bat with out causing a global crisis"

I'm happy to provide any help I can . I don't have all the answers but am probably better informed regards the medical issues around the illness than most on here.

There is lots of misinformation circulating out there . The latest we have run across is that asthma patients should have a pack of Steroids (Prednisone or Prednisolone ) and Antibiotics to take if they get COVID - We know that Antibiotics don't work on COVID and Prednisone use results in worse outcomes. If I don't know something I can probably find it out easier as well. Just PM if you wish -hopefully that will keep the sphincter police happy. Keep on posting about V8's - Connecting with you guys is keeping me sane in, for me, an increasingly insane world -Karl

Steroids reduce the immune system. Off line is fine. Online is better.


Most of us can rub our tummy and pat our head at the same time. Not a thread to shut down if we don't insult each other. Probably a good thing as we are world wide.


different time. certainly as days go on. Share away.

Personal insults should be eliminated and are as bad if not worse that putting ones politics on here. That should also get a person banned as well.

REASON: See Post #5!

DD, I missed your original post. It seems that "almost" all that viewed it are appreciative of it. Any chance you can re-edit and bring it back? I know, I'm probably riling up the tails that wag the dog but I think any and all information on this subject is valuable to us all, regardless of where it is found. Just add a V8 Ford somewhere in the text.

If the government mandates I have to stay 6 feet away from someone then I'm going home and lock myself in the bathroom as I don;t like most people that well to get that close.

Seems someone is taking an opportunity to use the outbreak as an excuse to do sneaky internet attacks.
i have a set-up at home that doesn't rely on outside internet at all. But when it connects to the internet, every device malfunctions & i am getting lots of junk data & pings from random places.
Disconnect it from the internet and everything smooths out again.
Rabbit hole goes deeper but i won't go into that here.
