    Sure haven't been many posts in this section in the past days. I figured with the current situation and people at home the forums would be swamped.
    Strange.

    I think it's the opposite - with the current situation, people aren't as enthusiastic about vehicles right now.

    I think you're right. I keep logging on to break the monopoly while working from home. I was at first surprised to see a lack of activity everywhere I go online, but realize people are just not into it right now; especially as the boredom sets in. Or in many cases, as the worries mount due to the job situation.

    I can only read and post so much. Besides with the auto industry shut down there's not much to post about aside from the virus or virus impacted subjects.

    The only real active thread is the COVID-19 thread and it goes all over the place in regards to subject matter, but that's Allpar for you. ;)

    Well, the 3 products that should be unveiled between this month and June have been postponed with no specific date of unveiling.

    Exactly!!!

    I think that it's not so much that WE are bored and stay away... It's just that there is NOTHING to talk about. I guarantee if they were some new spy shots or real news about upcoming vehicles, the Forums would respond accordingly.

    That's a difficult situation. You don't want to show it until interest pops back up, and that could be awhile if car sales tank after this.

    I'm lurking about, complaining to my buddies the lack of Mopar won Nascar race replays being shown. how can they already be showing repeat replays!!! wheres the old ABC wide world of sports footage? some races can be found on youtube but I'd like to see some mid 00' races with Dodges running to and at the front, not another Jeff Gordon victory......

    I watched a telecast of the last NASCAR cup race at Rockingham the other day. Several drivers were in a Dodge - Sterling Marlin, Kasey Kahne (rookie season), Ryan Newman and Brad Keselowski. Kahne came within inches of winning. To be honest, I'd forgotten who had won.

    If economy and car sales tank, then it could doom these products..

    Well, for me.... my wife and I are home, both trying to cram 8-9 hours of work into 5-6 hours for global, highly demanding jobs. She from our bedroom and me from the dining room. While also providing daycare to our 2-year old and playing teacher to our 2nd grader. :) No time for forums!!

    side note - sure glad I bought my Durango when I did! Just don't need the hassle of trying to factory order something now!

    Being on the same boat, I have to agree.
    I have to admit, working from home is actually harder than I thought.

    Working from home without the kids would be wonderful. I'm spoiled working for a global tech company, so our ability to stay connected is rather amazing.
