Yeah I think its some lame rule Luni has imposed ;)

You can't post links or attachments for 7 days. You should be able to upload to some service (IE photobucket) and then use the IMG tags {img}link.to.picture.jpg{/img} without the {} and use [] instead to host them.

I understand the rule. I think it so people dont just join and start spamming link and useless stuff.

My advice....

1. Maintenance above all else first.
2. Take anything you read here or other forums with a grain of salt until you have researched and know for sure the answer.
3. The Alltracs/GT4s are far less known than other cars so if you are good with a wrench, I would say save yourself some heart ache and money and do your own repairs.

Other than that, we love pics, so when you can post some of your ST205. These are fun cars (I can only imagine the ST205) so enjoy!

I've worked on a number of Ford motors myself. I've even witnessed a few Ford miracles.


We love supporting our northern brothers with their ST205 awesomeness. We are jealous. Toyota Nation was my first car forum, and after a year, I was pulled in over here. It was like going from a high school social to an actual community of people who care. Great folks, and we are glad to have you.

Welcome! We are really starting to get a number of great people in the Calgary area. Really cool to see! We get together regularly too, keep an eye in the Canada forum.

BTW - If you want any pics posted before your 7 days, PM me the links to wherever they are on photobucket or whatever you might use, and I'll post them up for ya.
