Jason's username was JLester. A search reveals that his last post was in February 2008 in the moderator forum that members don't see, a couple of months after he sold the site to AutoGuide. Jason's sales agreement was that he would continue to be an administrator of the website after Autoguide took it over. He posted for a few weeks, then disappeared.
Jason may have registered under another username after that, but no one alerted me to the new username name if he did that.
Notice that this thread began in January, 2008, and most of the posts were in early 2008.
Scroll down to the bottom of this page and you'll see the various other automotive websites that AutoGuide owns. Ford, Dodge, GM, Nisson, Toyota and several others.
