Welcome to CCF Classifieds Dearest CCF Members, we are very proud to begin immediate rollout of our new and hopefully somewhat improved classifieds platform which will replace our current thread based one. This is a Beta rollout for the next couple of weeks so do report bugs in the Suggestions & Bugs forum. The new platform will allow us to consolidate Corvette car, parts, general and wanted listings into a single place. You will be able to filter by many attributes such distance, type, condition and more. We are already working on many improvements to the platform but for the time being it's good enough to rollout and get you acclimatized to it. Classifieds can be found at the menu above called Classifieds or via this direct link...
CCF Members, As you may or may not know CCF (unlike some other places that shalt not be mentioned) is strictly a not-for-profit site. Our revenue streams are split between vendor sponsorships and donations from users in the form of account upgrades or one time donations. We treasure and always emphasize a good clean user experience and have elected not to place ads and adware on any page of this forum. We do not resell your information. There are multiple ways to help CCF grow outlined below. Donations: We have revamped our donation process to make it a little more transparent, clean and motivational. A new page called donations can now be accessed via the Navigation Menu (at the top) or directly using this link: DONATE Donations...

Dear CCF, Happy to announce that our heavily refreshed mobile app is now starting to roll out across mobile app stores. The app offers a much more streamlined experience for mobile users, push notifications, a dark theme and much more.... Some sample screens below. For Android users, app is fully rolled out, can be found at this link directly: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.clementlabs.mobile.android.ccf For Apple iOS users, click below: https://apple.co/3QWMrzg The app is currently priced at $9.99 across all stores. It's important to note that a fair bit of resource and money has gone into developing this so we hope you understand there's a need to cover some of our basic costs. All proceeds go back towards...
Effective immediately we are de-listing our current Mobile app from the Apple and Android stores. We are working on a spiffier version which is currently up for testing and distribution shortly. The current users of the app may continue using it however it will eventually stop working (within a week from now). To quench your app thirst our forums are 100% mobile friendly so don't be shy to browse on your cell phone in the wilderness.
PSA We've been made aware of a scam going around the motoring forums with a new user private messaging people with want to buy ads. If you've received a strange message asking you to contact David or some other name directly via email we caution you strongly not to engage. We've just removed a user SmartDriver who was propagating this scam. As always exercise extreme caution when receiving offers that are too good to be true from fresh new members.
Sportsbook Betting is here CCF is proud to find new ways to dispossess you of your VetteCoins so we are rolling out our very first beta version of a Sportsbook Betting Emporium. Every so often we will create events and outcomes (with moneyline odds) which you can wager your VetteCoins on for the chance to win big or the next outage to bring you to more tears. Currently ALL sportsbook events will be curated by staff however in the very near future we will be looking at bonafide bookies to help us make some of these events happen. We are also allowing you to create side bets with other members using the member bets functionality. Simply click on the member bets tab under the sportsbook event and create your own bet that's open to the...
CCF IS Back Hi CCF users! Firstly I wish to personally apologise for the longest outage ever. Our primary data center had what can best be described as a cataclysmic and mildly comical series of events involving a power surge, a power outage, a backup generator catching fire and fire suppressant dowsing hundreds of servers (including some of ours). Our original servers are still drying and in pieces. We are now operating from a different data center on different hardware from a backup that we thankfully did on Apr 3 (Sat night). We will not be able to recover your posts from Sunday. Things are NOT 100% yet but at least I can finally get a little bit of sleep tonight knowing the site is somewhat operational. If you see any weirdness...
CCF is happy to announce moarr and better Media integration. Media Albums and post attachments have always been a bit disconnected. With our recent uplift we can now put an end to this obstacle and spend more time browsing media instead of reading words. Effective immediately a majority of our forums will be synchronized with our Media Gallery. This means you can simply browse through every image or video attached to a post in the relevant forum directly via our Media Page as if it were an album. Every image that you attach to a post will be browsable via the media gallery and opening an image will show you all comments added via our Media section. New Categories for images split by forum can be found under heading CCF Attachments...
Hot on the heels of our first HYT thread, allow us to introduce Question Threads. Unlike regular forum threads question threads bring in several new features. 1. The question post will always be stickied on top of the thread 2. Users will be able to up and downvote answers 3. The post can by sorted by most number of votes 4. The thread owner can mark any answer as the solution 5. Solution posts will be stickied on top together with the question These types of threads are designed to help the next soul that is looking for an answer.
Article Threads Our first of many HYT (Have You Tried) threads that will hopefully explain new and old CCF timers how to navigate and utilize some of CCF's unique and new features. First up are article threads. Article threads are a special type of thread that anyone can compose in forums where this thread type is enabled (which is most of them at this stage). These threads are very much suited to more blog like posts (greater length, formatting and image content payloads). In addition article threads: 1. Add the original post as a sticky article at the very top of each thread so even if you're 5 pages in you can always refer to the original article and navigate to it. 2. Add special formatting if they are created in special...

Top of the Evening CCF Chaps and Chappettes, Just a quick announcement that I've rolled out limited Video Upload support to our Beta Group (@Beta ). If you're in the Beta group you should now be able to directly upload videos in posts, comments, albums as well as showcase items. We support the following formats: m4v, mov, mp4, mp4v, mpeg, mpg, ogv, webm. Videos over 20Mbytes will be rejected as we assess the load on our servers. So make sure files are under that size. We expect to lift this restriction when we roll this out to everyone. How to Guide: Simply drag & drop a valid video file into a post or use the insert video & upload button in the editor to upload a vid directly into a post without the need to go via youtube or other...
Hi CCF Members, Wanted to reach out to you to check if any are interested in becoming more regular content contributors to our CCF and other web properties. We are in particular looking at more frequent and serious content curators that can work independently and are able to research and pen down Corvette related articles. Ideally these would be homegrown original stories or well researched and verified reporting. We're working on a number of Corvette related blogging, news and event based projects and would love your help. PM me for more details.

CCF is proud to announce that our very own Derek (@ddgermann ) has become our first Forum Member sponsor of none other than the C7 Z06 Forum. Derek has been donating very regularly over the years and has elected to opt into our Account Upgrades which entitles him to some additional forum perks in exchange for his regular monthly donations. His name appearing under the relevant forum banner on the main page being one of those perks. As a reminder account upgrades are yet another option to give back to CCF and get some forum perks in return. You don't need to upgrade to donate as we have regular donations as well as apparel sales over at corvette.clothing to help support the site. All of which are appreciated equally. For more details...
