Hello, if I could I would like to submit my car?
I have owned it for twenty years, since high school. I have touched every bolt on the car except for two bolts on the lower pass side door hinge, (and the ones inside the tranny since I bought the tranny already built.
Engine is a 540 cu BB. Dart block, dart heads Pro Systems SV1 carb, Crower solid roller cam, Edlebrock Victor JR intake.
Trans is a Tremec T56 Magnum 6 speed.
Rear is a Moser 12 bolt with 4:10 gears
I reupholstered the seats and did the interior.
I replaced the electrical with American Autowire harnesses with original style glass fuses.

Enter. Lot's of times what was initially believed to be a forgone conclusion didn't work out that way.

Well I´m back again! :waving: ...and I have my birthday on the 27:th of June so it would be a great present with ROTM!

From Sweden is this X44 with what I call a old school Pro Tourer look! I´ve had it for 10 years now but my Camaro journey started when I was five and got a ride in one for the first time here in Sweden!

I suspect Lee has reached his attachment quota for his membership level, or the photos were too large to upload as specified in the upload limits for your particular membership class. Confirmed he is at max storage.

I had him ship the photos direct to me and the pictures he sent to me were very large so if all his photos have been that large his storage space would not last long.

I asked him to tell me the amount reported in his attachments storage bucket as listed on his control panel but haven't heard from him. Currently we can't see any members attachment stores but the Admin's are adding that to our moderators control panel so we can troubleshoot in the future. But in general the internet standard is 640 x 480 pixels and most browsers will reduce larger photos to this size anyways so don't waste time or your space on larger photos.

Lee: your pics were up a minute ago. FYI.
Yeah they have been up since yesterday. I will withdraw his entry when I create the voting poll tonight. I suspect some of the issues he and others have had since the modern and secure skin was released is that they are using unupdated unsecured versions of web browsers, java & JavaScript engines, and Adobe Flash. Java and Flash are updated at least once if not more in any given month. If you are running current supported operating and browser systems, and only run current plugins, the site runs fast with no issues. You can make it clean of all advertising if that is your gripe with additional ad blocker software available for free.

I recommend FireFox release 46x or newer or Opera 36 or newer or IE 11 for browsers on Windows 7, 8 or 10 systems. If you are using unsupported XP you can still load the latest FireFox and Opera browsers to remain safe. Make sure you make these your default browsers as old versions of IE are not supported by the site or the security standards in place on the web in general and using old buggy IE7x is dangerous.

As to the advertising on the site there is a real simple fix by running AdBlock Plus and No Script add in's in these browsers will eliminate all ads if that is what you want, or let you tweak to see only the vendors ads you wish. Opera latest releases have advertising and site tracking blocked by default according to the release notes.

But if those who can not adapt wish to stay in the cave, they can and we will miss them. :wink2:
