I'm from England where hot hatches are more common than pubs! Here, where I'm at in NH, not so much....
Just a thought. The 124's are now 'orphans' too. 2020 was the last year. Perhaps the guys running this forum should join forces with the 124 forum? It's the same motor, in both cars. The 124 guys have always been looked down on by the Miata people. I don't know why. The Miata is very poor by comparison. It looks like some sort of bug. I drove one before I bought my 124. No torque, huge body roll. On my favorite back country road I was actually laughing outloud at how bad it was.
The 124 forum is run by a corporation for profit that runs hundreds (or thousands?) of special interest forums. They have premium memberships, etc, and have no motivation to work with other forums. Just like the "red" 500 forum does - it's the same company. They hire "community" moderators to look grass roots, but in the end aren't.
Edit: https://www.verticalscope.com/ - Verticalscope is the company that runs the 124 forum that's popular.

Didn't know that but, perhaps, you can just make a place for 124 guys here? Maybe add a forum for 124 guys? If it works out you could rename this the 'Fiat 500/124 USA Forum'? I think there were about 15,000 124's sold in the US from 2016-2020. Would probably benefit both groups to have a bit more size, in the long run.
I AM surprised! Never scrolled down that far, I guess. Anyway, great minds think alike (:>
