NFSAddons is 20!
Today marks 20 years since NFSAddons/NFSGarage officially went online! It started as a small site, back on an old xoom.com domain, and eventually turned into, I believe, the first site where users could upload their own cars (I still tested each one to make sure the information/performance stats were accurate). During the time when High Stakes was still a new game, the site would be getting 70,000 unique visitors per day. Unfortunately, we suffered a massive hard drive failure some time in late 2001, and lost everything. We managed to salvage lots of the lost content, but some disappeared forever. Remko joined the site in the very early days and has been a huge help keeping things running smoothly when I was out/unable to (like this past week when I was on vacation), as well as Jeff (aka BMWSport), who still pops in every once in a while.

Remko created an NFSGarage nostalgia thread, which in itself is already 13 years old, which has links to some archive.org pages which show the many redesigns (some of them horrific) throughout the years.

I want to thank you all for continuing to visit and participate in the forums/comments these past 20 years. Times have changed and we are a closer-knit community now, but still going strong!

If you have any comments, questions, feedback, or memories of the site you'd like to share, feel free to do so in the comments.

Here's to another 20 years!

    I remember getting this racing game for my PC called Need for Speed3: Hot Pursuit, looking it up in a search engine (google wasn't even a thing yet) and thinking: wow, look at all those sites with user created mods for this game, as well as it then-brand new successor High Stakes. It was like being in a candy store, it was fascinating. I never thought we'd still be talking about it 20 years later (I also refuse to believe its' actually been 20, it was only a few years ago, right? :smirk:)

    I think it's impressive that Mike has been supporting the NFS Mod community for so long, in an online world where things disappear just as quickly as they become popular, giving modders an chance to share and promote their hard work, and giving fans a place to share their passion. Much respect for always being there, Mike. :clap:

    20 years isn't a small feat for a NFS mod site. Congratulations and hoping for another 20 years!
