Should "we" have a vehicular forum?

As I sat here reading, and posting largely irrelevant drivel to, various automobile-themed threads here, I got to musing.
Would it be a good idea, or a bad idea, to add an "automobilia"* thread to Hifihaven?
Thoughts?

Discuss. :)

Oh.
Here's why I asked. :)


AI re-imagines cars, parametrically.

Ask the AI to come up with a 1940 Corvette, and one gets...

"1980Tesla Model S"
 
Well the intelligence is definitely artificial. Not sure how it came up with that strange asymmetrical grille or 3 piece windshield. The Tesla looks like the bastard child of a Tesla and an RX7. Strange it put door handles in a coupe quarter panel also.

Watching this thread to see what the members thoughts are. I’m not against the idea, other then the fact that I Am unenthusiastic about adding unnecessary fora. Please comment!

Seems to me there is the perfect amount of automobile related hijacks in every thread ;)
I’m not convinced a separate forum is needed. If there were such a sub-forum some may never find their way back to the audio forums unless they were hijacked by a car audio thread.

I could go on and on but it’s getting late. :D

I think that is, as Frank Zappa might have put it, the crux of the biscuit.

Oh... and I suppose this means that I shouldn't even ask about adding a(n) XAM Forum, then, eh?

I posted the CC link, so I am all set, anyway.

I do have one other baseball-related tidbit (or titbit, as the Brits would have it) to share... anon.

Now... there's a niche.
Some of the XAM stuff was Electrovoice, some was harman/kardon (and some was junk).
I am... just sayin'.

I mean you could create another thread in the non audio forum like everything else?🤷‍♂️
Now adding a Polk forum, you’d be cooking with gas! (@mhardy6647 perks up). Only kidding, we don’t need a Polk forum. Maybe asking the fellow have items what forum they’d like added if any? I’m quite content with the current setup (maybe a home theater/ AV one?)…
 
After thinking about it my thought is no. We don't need a separate subforums for automobiles. I enjoy the way the threads meander. Forums that are overly segmented or split into subforms reduce traffic to those subforms. At least that's been my experience. I enjoyed more points of view and that usually happens when people can stumble across something that they may not have necessarily been looking for.

P.s. still love our Mustang Mach e 🤣
