    New member from Lexington Kentucky

    Greetings fellow forum members... I'm in the process of restoring a Triumph TR3B. I have been at it for a few years as time permits. Currently testing out retirement. Initially thought this phase of my life I would have LOTS for time for this hobby.. Not the case so far.. But after a few major projects around the house I think more time can be dedicated to the restoration..


    Cheers
    Joe Otero

    Joe - welcome to BCF. I thought the same thing about retirement - all the time in the world. But that time sure gets filled up fast. Hint: don't just retire *from* something; retire *into* something new.

    What got you interested in the TR3 cars? Beatrice - interesting name!

    Hey Tom,

    I've always been into cars. Especially sports cars. For me the styling of the TR3 represents true art from a bygone era..

    Not sure whats going on.. Photo uploads are failing for me... I'm using Firefox which should not cause an issue.. I get a popup dialog which states upload failed.. no reason is conveyed.

    Probably too large a file size - be sure the file you are uploading is less than 3MB (that's a server limit not a forum limit). Try re-sizing a copy of your image.

    I'm sure the file size criteria is documented somewhere if I had bothered to look.. :-)

    When you first upload, it puts the image in as a thumbnail. If you double-click the image (before you save your post) you get a popup, like this one. Just select "Center, Large" as seen and click ok and it will make the image a proper size. I fixed yours for you.
