Is there a Webmaster reading this ? I have trouble posting old photos

There are no Webmasters on here Mario. See my post regarding photos on the 'Barn Finds' thread, but I have no problem with Photobucket.

Chris, thank you very much for your kind answer.

In fact, my problem is that I lost some photos in Flickr, but then I put them back. Nevertheless those photos disappeared, of course, from my older posts in this forum. I could restore them if I could use an "edit" button, but this is not available.
I don't know if I make myself clear, I am not very good at computers.

Not much you can do about that. If you reload the photos to Flickr, even though they may be the same photos, they will have a new URL code so the old links will not work, and if you can not go back and edit the links, then it is gone forever. I would not worry too much though, once a post has been on here more than a week nobody else is going to see it anyway. If it was a good photo, or an interesting car, by all means post it again, but it will have to be a new post.

The alternative, a Gremlin

Wow! Where d'ya get that photo from? Aussie flags, right hand drive and Rambler badge? Has Gav gone down under? Give us an email, there's an extra prawn on the barbie for ya!

Actually, I was half serious, I do like the Pacer for some reason it's styling looks good from thirty-six years later, but the Gremlin is still the Gremlin, maybe this should be in the 'styling disasters and triumphs' thread elsewhere?

And I could not resist, but wouldn't you know it, I even have an original 1975 sales brochure for these turkeys too, ( I think there may even be a '76 in there somewhere) but don't p*ss me off or I will have to post a scan of the Hornet too.

Actually, I have a photo of a Gremlin with appropriate companion

It was an AMC Gremlin 3,8 I saw in Ciney (Belgium), in June 2011

Wolseley or Hudson Hornet piccies?..

Great Gremlin Mario, cant top that

However a bit more AMX stuff...

I                                                                                                                                                                    Honey, I shrunk Burt Reynold's Firebird

How does one stop this blooming thing???

am I sure I read somewhere that the AMX Javelin far outsold Mustangs, Camaros, Firebirds, and Cuda/Challengers?

which I find barely believeable, albeit maybe the corkscrew stunt one, that was in the first Roger Moore 007 flick, Live and Let Die, boosted sales in the same way that identical to but aquatic white  Espirit, (the highest selling die cast Corgi model?) to the one you posted a picture of Mario, possibly did for Lotus

Octo pussy

.Back to AMX The Javelin

Mario,

If you send the new links to me (usual e-mail) I can sort them out for you.

Petrolhead,

All about Sciroccos,

http://website.lineone.net/%7Edr.dub/index.htm

I love the Sciroccos but my Audi Coupe is a very good car too, so I split between them. The Golf4 we buy new in 2003 is the less used car in the family, he is 60.000km now and never go further than Spain, and even there, no more than 200km from de portuguse Border, The same year we buy the Golf, we have been in Berlin with the Audi...

About new VW, they are good capable cars cars from this century. I d'ont like recreations as Beetles or Fiat 500 (the New Mini at least have the same mechanical lay-out). I prefer to be suprised, if the brand have heritage must be there in a subtle way, but in the end the petrol heads all over the world decides if a car become classico to soon or to late.

Hi Nuno,

a quick off topic question; I was just reading back and I missed a lot of this thread a week or two back, but I see you are a bit of a fan of VW and Audi. So do you know of a VW agency owned by the Zilhao family? I think it was in the west of Lisbon around Benfica or Buraca but not sure. In the mid-nineties the teenage son Antonio ( known as Toina ) stayed at my house in England when he was racing Formula Ford, and his father owned the VW agency. The last I heard of him he was back in Portugal racing a Golf GTi. Do you know if they are still in the business?
