Operating from Sarasota, Florida, we are now in our twenty fifth year on the web, hosting the oldest running classified ad web site for antique engine enthusiasts. Our ad pages have delivered millions of ads and we archive over 1.5 million related messages from 30,000 registered users with over ten thousand engine photos. In order to keep up with web site demand, we have graduated through a number of hosts and web servers. Our newest web server with SOLID STATE DRIVES is located in Atlanta at a carrier grade, state of the art IBM data center with redundant UPS, air conditioning, generator backup and smoke detection/fire protection systems. The facility is under 24/7 remote camera surveillance and security guard patrol. The server is connected to the Internet through several gigabit Ethernet links from six separate backbone providers, who each run fiber optic cable into the data center through two separate entry points.
