While I do not know the logistics if the forum could take pics direct from our own computers I feel most of these problems would disappear, along with the many  technophobes ability to actually post pics.


This has been discussed time after time...

We can safely assume it's not going to happen.

Michael, even you said it's mostly pics from 2007 that have disappeared. Some are still there. 2007 was well before they started to charge, of course, and it's to be assumed that now they're charging it won't be happening.

Weirdest thing is I don't know how or even if I'm paying them!

How long have I been telling you that my photos are disappearing? Probably about seven years now. Certainly well before they hit on the idea of charging for their lousy service.
You are the only person I know that is pig headed enough to trust them.

Look at the most of the other photos that have gone in those threads, they all have one thing in common.

The photo on the Facebook page is clearly the Holmes Formcar, it shows a separate nose section, the Haehnle/my one had a 1 piece centre section including the nose

Where is the Facebook page, Greg? I can't find it.

It's strange responding to a conversation five years old. The internet is weird. Frank Gardner meant a lot to me and still does. I learnt to drive Formula Fords at his racing school in Melbourne. Before every hillclimb

or supersprint I've entered recently, I think of him and recall the things he taught me. In turn I have passed on his knowledge to everyone I've taught to drive. I wonder how many of you are still doing some kind of competition driving? I couldn't keep away from it. 


PS: It's sad to hear Frank Gardener passed away today..... great race driver and doer in motorsport.

When I was quite young living in Darlo, Mum would sometimes give me spending money to buy lollies from Mrs Roy's shop! :cool:
