    Yeah, you're old enough A-hole :P

    I did belong about 12 years ago when I had my 1953 Suoer with 45,000 miles and at the time most were my age or older.

    Sounds no different than the MBCA here. At last year's show, I think I was the 2nd or 3rd youngest person there out of maybe 75 entrants - and I am getting into my mid 30s now. Some members had been members for about 20 years when I was born!

    Same to you! ;)

    I din't know about the Ford show at BCC today and missed it!

    Instead I ended up at the Triple X in Issaquah for a boring BMW meet.

    Really? I had no idea there was a Ford show there either, damn. I had the old car out too...probably won't take it off surface streets until I get the parking brake and cooling system issue taken care of, maybe next month.

    Mustang show at BCC should be in a month or two.

    Just don't miss Fenders on Front St. in Issaquah on Father's Day. Huge event!

    What kind of show is that? I am on the east coast that week but I'm back by the weekend.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,879
    On Saturday. Every year on Front St. Quite an event!

    Maybe someone can tell me how to post photos? I have some pics on an SD card but I'm challenged as far as posting things.

    Picked it up yesterday and it's even better than I thought.

    Body is as straight as a pin. Original paint looks good unless a person wants to pick at it and point out the areas where the clearcoat is starting to peel just a bit.

    Leather and interior are probably an 8 out of 10 and it runs exceptionall well. 138,000 miles.

    A/C will throw snowballs at you.

    The worst thing are the aluminum factory wheels. If you look at them close, you'll see curb rash and clearcoat peeling. They really need to be redone.

    ABS light is on and has been for at least five years according to the seller

    Owners Manual and Reatta pen are included in the leather folder. I found the factory "build sheet" inside the car.

    If someone tells he how to do this, I'll post pics.">

    I just realized something...they don't have "CarSpace" here on Edmund's anymore, do they?

    To post pics, you need to have an account at a photo sharing site, like Flickr, Photobucket, etc, or some kind of personal website where you can upload pictures.

    If you don't have one, if you want to email me some pics, I can post them from my photobucket site.

    Appreciate that but I'm going to have to figure out how to even email people pictures. I thought I knew how but I guess I don't.

    Hate to admit this but when it comes to things like this, I need to take a class.

    Since it's free, try out, say, www.photobucket.com, set up an account, and upload a few photos. Then copy the link over to one of the postings here.
  • isellhondasisellhondas Issaquah WashingtonPosts: 17,879
    I'll try, thanks!

    Someone else suggested Snapfish but I can't get it to work.

    It's actually not hard. First, to get those pictures off the camera, you need to connect it to the computer. Most digital cameras come with a usb cable that hooks from the camera to the computer. And some computers nowadays even have built-in ports that will accept the memory card. Which is a good thing, because I lost the USB cable to my camera years ago!

    Anyway, once you plug the camera, or the card, into the computer, usually a window will pop up asking you what you want to do. Or, you can go to "my computer"/"computer" (usually an icon on the desktop, or in the pull-up menu that comes from the lower LH corner of a PC), and the memory card should come up under "devices with removable storage". If you click on that, it'll open a window that shows files of all the pictures you took.

    You can just click on the pictures you want and drag them to the desktop, which will copy them to your computer. And then, in an email, just click the attach file icon and then go search for it.

    I probably made it sound more complicated than it really is, but hope this helps!

    Well, I was able to drag the photos to my desktop but that was about it.

    I almost didn't mention that I bought the Reatta because I knew I would be asked to produce photos and that is something I lack the ability to do.

    Thanks anyway.

    Well, if you got them to your desktop, that's half the battle! If you're using Yahoo mail, there's a button that says "attach files". When you click on it, it'll bring up a page where you can attach the files. Just click the "browse" button, then select the desktop, and you should be able to find your pictures.

    Anyway, sorry if I put any pressure on you. Congrats on the car, though! Hope you enjoy it, and welcome to the wonderful world of Buick, that elusive clique inhabited by me, Lemko, Imidazol97, and, well, on Edmund's that's probably about it! :P

    No pressure. I appreciate the help my frined and sorry for being such a computer klutz. I'll eventually figure it out.

    I do use Yahoo Mail so I'll play around.
