There are plenty of software options for running a website, but right or wrong, MOTOR Austin is built from scratch.

The design and code behind MOTOR Austin itself is a work of creativity and passion, along with frustration and sacrifice.
The MOTOR Austin design and applications might not look like much to some, but every square inch has been thought about, designed, coded, and redesigned. It is an ongoing process.

So what's the point? BuZz version 2 went live this morning around 6:00 AM. Yay!

Backup. BuZz 1 was pretty cool, at least I liked it. Easy to read short updates and links of interest. However, there was no way to provide feedback if a particular BuZz was interesting to someone. So we fixed that.

BuZz 2 allows any member with an account to post and/or comment on a post. Each post can also have a one or more tags, which allow you to see all BuZz posts of a similar nature such as "all BuZz about car shows" or "all BuZz that contain video". But that's not all, your BuZz posts will show up on your profile! And, you can also view BuZz posts by a specific member by clicking the link on the member's profile! I think that's cool.

We have a lot more up our sleeve, pages of hand scratched ideas on evolving MOTOR Austin's social features, and member created content. Stuff you can't get out of a box of software. Stay tuned, more will be revealed.

One more thing, the "create account" has been disabled due to frequent software updates. However, if you would like to have an account just email us and we will get you set up.

All the Best!
