Most of the specialised forums I look in on have migrated to Facebook groups...
FSOC, for example, has a closed-to-club group...

The Dellow Register has it's own group, but there's also a more widely frequented Dellow group as well...
Same with the Buckler Register.

Both the Buckler Register and the FSOC have a members-only group [closed to all others]...wherein technical advice, etc, is given & received.

The Dellow Group is a bit less stringent in its access.

All are moderated quite strictly.....

But they provide an easily accessible point-of-contact that forums tended not to....and, of course, place a zero strain on the Club finances.
The Mustang owners Club GB has their own specific forum, neatly divided by year [era?]...which is a very useful resource.

I find forums on specific platforms need a dedicated 'visit'....whereas Facebook is a lot more easily accessible, via any number of technologies.

Those who shun the techno world [for whatever reason?] usually know someone close by [with the shared interest] who does use Facebook....so contact can still be maintained...even if 2nd hand.

The immediacy of this form of communication has to be an improvement on the quarterly, or bi-monthly, club journal or magazine? Changes to events,etc can be easily communicated....
Oh how contact with like minded individuals has changed over the years?

There are lots of club forums which I will not list. One exception because I think is the best of all: http://www.joc.org.uk/phpBB2/index.php

Club independent forums
Triumph - http://sideways-technologies.co.uk/forums/ - https://www.triumphexp.com/
Lotus - http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/forum/215-elite-eclat-excel/
Wolseley - http://www.wolseleyforum.com/index.php?act=idx
Jaguar - http://www.jaguarforum.com/ (UK) - http://www.jaguarforums.com/ (USA)

Another good one, not restricted to one make is the RetroRides forum. Lots of rubbish on it but also very good information. Welding for example, excellent examples. - http://forum.retro-rides.org/

Would love to hear from more generic forums like this old favorite Very Happy - http://www.oldclassiccar.co.uk/forum/phpbb/phpBB2/

Pretty much agree with Badhuis.

Admin on the Wolseley Forum, own and run the Landcrab Forum. Enjoy OCC, and Retrorides is usually a good fun read.
