  • Asking for a FRIEND!

    The old Swifty's garage MIGHT of had an active "Black with Flames" committee. Has anyone heard that there may or may not be an active "BWF" Committee here at the Diecast Garage? Asking for a FRIEND! If there is such a committee, and if you may or may not be a member, just post your BWF castings here so we can all enjoy.

    Posting pictures of Black with Flames castings may mean you are an active member of a committee that may or may not exist, or maybe you are not a member, after all this BWF committee may or may not be real. But "Black with Flames" castings have always had a special appeal to collectors.

      The image file limits have been reset. We have over-limit warnings for the past 3 months and I've had to lower the image file limits. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. I know I've mentioned many times before, but it is very important to downsize images - doesn't matter if they are hosted elsewhere or here. I've set the pixels for no more than 1000 across the longest side, so if you resize to that all should be well. (The new limits are larger than what I typically use, and my images turn out just fine, so I know it shouldn't be a problem)

      Thank you for your understanding.

          Ah the years when the Camaro went from pretty to downright mean looking. Love them! Thanks for posting!

                    I don't know if that Ghia meets all the specifications of a BWF, any comments from those who may or may not be members of the classification committee?

                      Ahh the simple application of a few discretely placed flames really makes the old Ford sparkle and pop. Nice one 69ch.☺

                        It's not really "a thing" in my collection, so I could never claim to have participated in any such committee, no one would believe such a thing anyway, but surprisingly I do have something that kind of fits, no idea how it got here.

                        If it doesn't qualify, I'll be happy to remove it.

                            Black with flames committee? What kind of nonsense are we letting people post? Don't this place have any rules on frivolous posts? We need the administration to nip this in the bud.

                              that poor 89 Firebird needs to be free, or the flames will go out as soon as it runs out of air
