It’d think they are indexing the site so it can be found in google and bing searches

Correct you are. After a little time goes by, searching Google should return results from this as well as the old forums.

Someday when I am not looking for it, I will find one of the Spark Plug Barrny Google radiator toppers! (or make one because I am sure it would be way out of my price range) They did make them back in the day.
