      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.

            Would that be a first generation Jetta? If so, <insert an "ohh ahh" here>.

                  I hope I don't burst any d-r-o-o-l bubbles...as a Guisval, I think that's a SEAT / Fiat (it keeps replacing the word with the emoticon...)

                  • OK, never heard of a Fiat SEAT. Nice! And the Marx Chevy is great.

                        SEAT is a Spanish Automaker (like, made in Spain) building under license from Fiat, so basically they are building Fiats in local factories and putting their name on the cars. I don't think they are owned by Fiat, more of a licensing arrangement.

                        Perhaps the 131 will ring a bell, a long running <chuckle> model made for most Euro markets by Fiat, but for the Spanish market they were built by SEAT

                        That is one of the neat things I find collecting toy cars from around the world, you get to learn so much about auto makes you would not otherwise even know existed...at least that is how it is for me. And since Guisval are made in Spain, that particular brand tends to bring out some of these automaker details one will never learn with only Hot Wheels (or Matchbox for that matter).

                        • Good info. I did a screen capture of your response because otherwise, I'd probably forget it. Indeed - was trying to remember SEAT earlier, and could not. I totally agree with you about learning of obscure world vehicles through the collecting hobby. The profile of the SEAT "131" in the photo (especially the four-door) looks even more like the first generation Jetta. Many may not remember the first gen. Jetta. They probably think of the second gen. as being the first. I'm talking about the one with the quad rectangular headlamps (US spec.). I wanted one so bad, but didn't have the coin. Instead, happily drove used Volvo 242DLs during that period of the 1980s. Finally pulled enough together and got a brand new 1988 Jetta 5-speed. What were we talking about - oh yeah Guisval and SEAT.

                          Here's the first gen. Jetta that I keep saying looks like the SEAT. And just for fun, the black one was my 1988 Jetta 5-speed.
