  • Greetings to everyone!

    If you haven't figured out, I am juantoo3, jt3 is my alter ego for building the site. I'm thrilled to see everyone checking the place out. Keep in mind it is still under construction, so there is a lot missing and a lot that needs to be tidied up. Please don't mind the mess, hopefully we won't screw anything up while we're sorting the place. I hope to have it sufficiently ready for an October 1st official launch date open house, but if you want to wander through while it is being built please be my guest. Just watch for the buckets of paint on the floor...
    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.

    It is looking good Wes! Thank you for all of your efforts to create this and move us away from Tapatalk nonsense. Just back from Iowa/Wisconsin so will now find my way around! Works in progress can be fun - a bucket or two of paint on the floor is part of the progress! And know you are still refining and building but just wanted to comment that I hope there will be a slot for the emergency vehicle collectors when all the paint is out of the buckets and on the walls.

        Already done in anticipation, also made boards for ag, big trucks and equipment. military and postal...two of my personal favorites! Good to have you aboard, Pastor John!

          Forgive me, I don't recall your name other than your avatar, so if I should know please forgive me!

            Thank you juantoo3 for not only taking charge of the change, but for setting everything up! I am slowly familiarizing myself with everything and look forward to contributing more. Keep it up!

                GCU here, getting back into the swing of things with the board now that you're not on that frustrating, awful Tapatalk. I was on the old board fairly often before Zetaboards died,

                Gotta say I'm a fan of Vbulletin over Tapatalk *and* Zetaboards

                  Great to see you, Chris! Been wondering how you were doing!

                    Thanks! Been doing lots of collecting, but been mostly on Instagram

                      Thank you for doing this. It was difficult navigating the Tapatalk and not being able to post anything.

                          What a wonderful day, Wes.
                          Just like old times with you being here.
                          Some other Swifty's Garage members are making the migration.
                          I guess that we are in at the ground floor.

                          It is o'kay if the construction is still going on.
                          Saw dust, nails, boards, plaster, cement, bricks, paint, etc. are all acceptable.
                          Besides, I like the smell of saw dust and paint.
                          The new "build" is all that matters.

                          I hope that we get a new coffee pot and some better coffee.
                          Or I just might have to go back to drinking tea.
                          We just might need some doughnuts to go along with the coffee.

                          I would also like to take this opportunity to say "Hi" to other members who read this post.

                          Cheers. Cobra

                            Hello All,

                            A long time member of Swifty's that has been MIA so to speak. Real name is John and I am still collecting diecast even after doing a major sell off to get the collection somewhat under control. My focus has changed over the years and I still lurk on another board or 2. Looking forward to seeing everyone's collections, finds, and so on.
