LTR Classified Ads System Fixed

I found out the other day that the LTR classified ads system did not support emailing.  This meant that you could no respond to ads, forward ads, or use the "forgot password" system.  We now fixed those issues and the system is back up and running.

The classified ad system is free for LTR members to use.  You can post ads for cars or other stuff with photos and details.  You can also include a URL to a website for more details on your items.  One use of the URL is to post a link to a Google Photos album where you can have photos, videos, etc., to help sell your item.  Once you create your ad, there is a simple and short URL direct to your ad that you can share with people easily.  Here is an example: of an active ad now.  If you are feeling even more nerdy, you can use this link with a QR code generator such as this:  to generate a QR code that people can easily scan with any smartphone to pull up your ad.  Here is an example.
If you scan that with your smartphone it will take you to the ad for the 944. This is real handy if you have your car at a show or other gathering you can put an ad together with this QR code so people can quickly get more info on your item for sale.

I hope you find our classified ad system useful.

Finding a local shop

Another question has come into Lincoln Trail and you can offer input. A new member has just obtained a 1987 Porsche 930 with 47k miles and is in the process of sorting it out. Their question; where can they find a mechanic who knows their way around a 930 in the Bloomington/Normal area? If you have or know of a mechanic who fits the question, please let us know.
