Default Bad luck turns into a pace car

Back in the summer of 2015 I had an accident and totaled out my 03 LS which broke my heart. The Insurance company gave me more than I expected because of the exceptional condition of the car. The next day I looked across the street from the accident site and saw a yellow Monte in a used car lot. I drove over and realized it was an SS and the closer I got I realized it was a pace car. They just picked it up from the auction the day before. I grabbed my insurance check and $1000.00. A short time later my wife and I were the proud owners of a pretty rare ride #959 of 1150. Needless to say we forgot all about the bad experience and loss of the other car. 😀

Before now you had less than 10 posts and the system will not let you post until you have been a member for at least 5 full days AND ten posts. Now you should be able to post and not have to use an outside hosting site. You can upload right here to the MCF!


You click below "Go advanced"


Scroll down to "Manage attachments"


Select a file to upload by using browse


Upload the pic by clicking "Upload" then close thatlittle window


Now just above "manage attachments" you will see a linkwith the name of your uploaded pic


right click on that link and choose "Copy shortcut"


in the tool bar above you will see this button





click this button


right click in that space and select"paste" then hit OK


That will put your little attachment into your post as a largerpicture.


Hope this helps
