For everyone else who is not a site administrator/owner....

In the event that this forum has been screwed up by incompetent database management, corrupted backups, and permanent data loss...

Some of the broken and missing site pages can probably still be accessed via the Archive.org Wayback Machine. They have a web crawler that periodically accesses websites and downloads a copy of everything it can find.

All sorts of public website data is being archived permanently by Archive.org because the web constantly changes, and so the Archive is an attempt to provide lasting a history of what was, even when websites no longer exist.

Here is the Garage section that just says "not found" now.. archived Dec 9, 2017:

https://web.archive.org/web/20171209020218/https://www.diyelectriccar.com:80/garage

The last page of the Garage also loads, so probably it is all accessible:

https://web.archive.org/web/20171225051639/https://www.diyelectriccar.com:80/garage/cars?page=49

,

First item on first page, in the Garage list:
https://web.archive.org/web/20171209020218/https://www.diyelectriccar.com:80/garage/cars/946

Last item on last page:
https://web.archive.org/web/20171209021442/https://www.diyelectriccar.com:80/garage/cars/25

There are limits on what the Wayback machine is able to archive, so there may be missing content. But at least everything has not been lost.
