Photobucket Hosting

Posted by jedimario (Admin) at Jun 30 2017, 10:45 PM. 17 comments

As many of you have discovered, Photobucket has recently modified their pricing structure and removed third-party hosting abilities from all but their most expensive account type. This change affects all of their existing content, including many thousands of pictures linked here at Swifty's Garage. All Photobucket images belonging to members who are not in the highest pay tier will now appear as this:

Posted Image

Usually here at the Garage, you have a limited amount of time to edit your posts and topics. We are temporarily removing this limit so that you may go back and edit posts affected by Photobucket's change should you wish. Tentatively, this limit will be lifted for one month. During this time, you will be able to go back and change the image links in your posts to new ones that work. We know this will be a tedious process, but we wanted to make it available. Unfortunately, there's not much else we can do.

For discussion on the issue and alternative services, check out this thread.

To recover your images, follow these steps:

1. Locate the post you wish to recover images from.
2. Click the Edit button below the post.
3. Copy the full URL between the IMG brackets.
4. Paste this URL in a new web browser tab or window.
5a. Right click the image you want to keep and click "Save as..." or similar. This will allow you to save the image to your hard drive like any other file.
5b. If you are logged in to Photobucket, there may be a "download" option somewhere on the page. I have forgotten my credentials so I can't check for one.

EDIT: We have several members whos Photobucket accounts are still allowing third party hosting. Not sure of the reason for this, but Photobucket itself claims that this should not be working.

2016 Promo Cars Are In

Posted by Swifty (Admin) at Dec 14 2016, 11:43 PM. 71 comments

2016 was a big year for the Garage. We celebrated our tenth anniversary, and our 500,000th post. We even had an awesome contest to celebrate. So what's the only thing we were missing this year?

A promo car! And with just a few short weeks left in the year, it's time to rectify that before it's too late!

So without further ado... introducing the 2016 Swifty's Garage promo car:

Posted Image

It's the MotorMax 1971 Ford Mustang Boss 351 with additional detail from ColorComp. With a racing roundel representing the year 2016 and Swifty's Garage sponsorship on the flanks, this pony is sure to gallop into your collection this holiday season.

We have 43 of them. And that's it, when they're gone, they're gone forever. There will be no additional runs of this car. Post to reserve your car in this thread - this is a first come, first served basis:

Price is $22.00 shipped (in the USA - outside the USA shipping will be at cost) for check/money order, and $23.00 shipped (in the USA - outside the USA shipping will be at cost) for those opting to use PayPal (to cover the PayPal fee). Additional car(s) available at $15.00/car.

Payment instructions:

Check or money order mailed to:

Swifty's Garage
PO Box 72
Cornwall, PA 17016

Please make checks/money orders out to me, personally. PM me for my name if you need it.

PayPal: bkiehn@gmail.com

A big thanks to 250 TR for volunteering to receive PayPal payments for this promotion. Thanks Ben!
