Everyone has life experience and knowledge about something, and OldRide Answers provides a way for people to share their knowledge and insight. When viewing the question, simply click on the ‘Answer this Question’ button located directly under the question. From there, you will be able to provide answers and name any sources that will help state your claim.

Closing Your Question
After you have asked your question and have received answers, you can close your question from being answered by other users by selecting "This is the Best Answer". After a question becomes a Closed Question it stays in OldRide Answers and is available for searching and browsing. The Best Answer represents the asker's opinion and is noted by a red star.

Share Your Knowledge
Share your intelligence for a good cause…to help those in the Classic Car Community. Have some knowledge about a specific make or model? Or perhaps found the best deal on Classic Car Parts. Chances are, someone could benefit from your knowledge, opinions, or personal experiences. Sharing what you know is one of many ways you can make a positive contribution to the Classic Car Community.

Search a Topic
Have a specific question or want to know someone’s thoughts? Use the Search Bar to refine your search, or select from the side-bar menu on the left hand side of the screen to browse.

Being a Good Citizen
Is someone not being faithful and true to the Classic Car Community? Report them to help keep OldRide a safe, positive and fun site by clicking on the ‘Report It’ box located directly under the ‘Answer This Question’ box. We appreciate all of your help and understanding.

Guidelines & Policies

Like many other online communities, we have a rigid set of principles that must be followed by all members. Violation of these guidelines may result in the suspension of your membership without warning.

Be courteous
Remember, we're a diverse community of people with diverse opinions. Everyone wants to be treated with respect, and showing respect to others makes the community better for all members.

Asking clear questions
Keep your questions concise, but be descriptive enough to help people understand what you're asking. Correct spelling and grammar help people find your questions, and you'll get better answers when others can clearly make out what you're asking.

Place your question where it belongs
Categorize your question correctly. Placing your question in the right category ensures that it is seen by people who can give you better information and more accurate answers.

Exploiting the community
OldRide Answers is a place to gain knowledge, not customers or page views. If you have years of experience in something, have a special hobby, own your own business, or if you are a knowledge partner, it's OK to accompany a good, on-topic answer with a link to your website, blog, or email to offer more information. However, it is not OK to post links that are unrelated to the topic or are clearly meant only to solicit others for personal and financial gain. Also prohibited are solicitations like "Will you add me as a contact?" or propositioning people.

Venting, ranting, or using hate speech
OldRide Answers isn't the place to vent personal frustrations or rant about issues. We are a community of people with diverse beliefs, opinions, and backgrounds, so please be respectful and keep hateful and incendiary comments off OldRide.com. Such behavior will result in your account being suspended.

Chatting or otherwise violating the question-and-answer format
OldRide Answers is a community of questions and answers, not a chat room. If a post is neither a question nor an answer, it doesn't belong here. If you’re looking for a place to chat with others, try OldRide Groups.

Doing harm
Be responsible and don’t misrepresent yourself or give advice in a way that might cause someone harm.
