Morning Guys,

Sorry to hijack the thread but am wondering which photo hosting service you use to post pics?
I previously used Photobucket but looks like it has gone downhill in recent years

Thanks
Pete

I personally just upload to the forum. If you right click and inspect the hosted photos, you should see where they are. Looks like Fast3000 is using Dropbox.

Like Paul I also favour uploading directly to the forum. I think it should also future proof threads so images aren’t lost if hosting sites change or user accounts lapse.

I had a Photobucket account about 15 years ago for uploading photos to forums. No idea what happened to it though, hard to imagine it still exists.

Hello Metrics, and thanks.
Whilst the Autocar was midnight blue, it was a 64 plate number 016. Mine is a 66 plate no 160
