  • RIP Guntownal

    This is from Alex's wife, Becky. I just wanted to let everyone know that we were in a motorcycle accident Labor Day weekend, hit head on by a duid. Alex was killed instantly and I was severely injured and will be permanently. I'll fondly remember going on diecast trips with him - mostly Denver PA and Macungie PA

    Oh, I am so sorry about your husband and you of course. I remember him at Swifty's Garage and I may be wrong but he lived in North Augusta, SC near my original home in Augusta, Georgia. I will say a prayer for you and hope in time God will help you live in peace and be able to endure what has happened to you. God be with you and thanks for the information. God Bless You, I'm so sorry.

                Hi Becky and Lisa I am very sorry for the loss of your husband and father. I always enjoyed reading his posts and seeing his collection on Hobbytalk, Swifty's Garage, and Diecast Garage. Sending condolences to Alex's family.

                  Oh My God, I am so very sorry to hear. GuntownAl was always someone whose posts I looked forward to. BIG hole in the diecast community.

                  Please accept my condolences, I'm at such a loss for words to say what I'm feeling. I'm so sorry for your loss.

                  The image file limits have been reset. Upper limits now are 100,000 when we have some images that exceed 5,000,000. 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 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.

                    So sorry to hear this. I loved his activity on the boards.

                        RIP Alex. I barely knew you (if at all) but have been reading his posts for 10+ years so he feels familiar just the same.
