American-hosted community for Australian hotrodders
Terms and Conditions
Guests have READ ONLY access to selected areas. To be able to post or gain full access to this site including private messaging, the classifieds, registration, members rides and off topic areas, you need to be a registered member. We accept anyone with an interest in Pre 1948 Hotrods and Pre 65 Kustom vehicles. You only need an interest, not ownership. We hope that some of the things you learn here will encourage your active participation in our hobby. Please note that if you attempt to sign up to this Forum WITHOUT following these Terms and Conditions, your application will be treated as spam and DELETED without question! This is to avoid the thousands of spam idiots that attempt to sign up.
Your membership will NOT be activated without the correct information. Applications which do not satisfy the criteria will be removed.
A valid email address MUST be supplied when registering. 'Free' mail services such as Hotmail, Yahoo etc. are not allowed for security reasons. You MUST supply a valid ISP or company email address or your membership application WILL be deleted.
YOU MUST provide a town/city and state location (DO NOT put just Australia). If outside Australia, you must put your city/town and also provide the Country (anything with just USA for example will be instantly deleted).
You can also only sign up only once! If you have applied for membership and not received a reply or have any other query, email email@example.com with all relevant information.
This is a family oriented site, with many young members. SOME everyday language is allowed but only if 'in context'. All posting must be respectful of others and anyone who goes overboard or continually disregards this point will be banned temporarily or removed from the site permanently. If you have any problems in relation to anything posted on this forum contact Dave or one of the other moderators.
This Forum is for HOTRODS and CUSTOMS. Posting information on these forums MUST be topical and with a purpose.
- This Forum deems a Hotrod to be the same as the ASRF classification, that is a Pre 1948 full chassis car that has been modified. As far as this forum is concerned a STREETROD is just a politically correct name for a HOTROD and we do NOT differentiate between the 2, they are the same thing. Our preference is for the term Hotrod but feel free to use whichever term you like.
As far as Customs (or Kustoms) go we accept the ASRF classification but we also INCLUDE vehicles up to 1971 of U.S. or Australian origin. To define that further we accept only HG and prior Holdens, XY and prior Falcons and VG and prior Valiants. or or other vehicles of interest at OUR discretion, which includes the occasional VW, Chopper, Bobber etc.
- Any post that does not relate in some way to our hobby (based on the above definitions) with the exception of those in the pub, will be deleted and no discussion will be entered into. A large number of old posts will be reviewed and this rule applied!
- Ozrodders is a PUBLIC Forum and apart from certain areas such as the Oz-E-Rodders Club area, Classifieds, etc. the rest can be viewed and read by anyone, anywhere in the world. Only members can post or reply but anyone can read what you are saying. You must therefore keep your comments fair and reasonable and NO derogatory personal references are to be made about any other named or otherwise identified parties (such as by the car they drive) unless it is appropriate to the discussion. Each person is responsible for their own posts and I (and the other moderators) should not have to edit any post.
- Any language must be in CONTEXT anywhere on this site. Generally the Pub is the only area where we allow any leeway but only when appropriate. Some words should not be used under any circumstances so please use your common sense. Repeated foul language or personal abuse may result in permanent removal from this forum.
- There are to be NO pictures in signatures with the exception of Oz-E-Rodders members who may display a small approved club logo. Avatar pictures are to be no wider than 150 pixels and must NOT have any offensive content. Any signature pictures or overwidth avatar pictures will be removed without notice.
- Every forum member is entitled to their own opinion, BUT you must respect that freedom of speech is NOT absolute and content of a racial, violent, sexual or abusive nature will NOT be tolerated. Pictures of a similar nature are also not allowed and full frontal nudity is banned outright.
- The Administrators and Moderators have the final say and whilst we are always happy to listen to constructive suggestions we will NOT enter into arguments about the rules or our interpretations of them. Moderator abuse will see you removed from the forum.
- The same as rule 1, this Forum is for HOTRODS and CUSTOMS. Please keep any posts relevant and lets get back to what we are about. The Pub is the ONLY place on this forum for off topic discussion. If you have a child who is a member of this forum and want their access to the Pub restricted please contact Dave.
