Default Back From The Dead

Hello Nissan people,
Been gone for a long time and sold several Nissans I owned. The story is long, so I'll try and abbreviate it.
Last time I was on I think I had a 94 D21 which was a POS Northern truck.
Ran great but suffered from terminal rust.
I went to Hawaii for work, then to Guam and ended up in Saipan. (Look it up)
I was in Saipan when a super typhoon named Yutu went through and tattered the place. This ended up with me owning a 2004 Frontier that was pretty busted up by the storm.
Needless to say, Saipan is a tiny island at the END of NOWHERE!!
I paid $450 for a replacement windshield, $250 for an aftermarket D21 tailgate, $200 for an aftermarket fender.
Moral of story, parts are WAY expensive there.
I still own the truck, although a friend sent me a $1000 deposit to buy it.
I have some crappy pix of it which I will post on a new thread.
Fast forward... to 2019July. I left Saipan and went to California for more work. I bought a 1989 Mazda B2200 and set that up. I also bought a crazy dune buggy with a built VW engine. Quick!!
I towed the buggy behind the Mazda back to Baton Rouge, a guy offered me $3000 for the Mazda, so down the road it went.
Fast forward again to 2020 and 2021. I had to go back to California for work and was looking for another Nissan, Mazda, S10 or even a Ranger.
Everything was either used up or over priced.
I looked at Jaguars, El Caminos, full size trucks etc. Most everyone thinks they have gold.
I ended up with this:
Um... insert image? It asks for a URL for a picture. The pictures are in a file on my computer...
Suggestions?
No, I'm not going to photorip off.

Anyway, sorry for the book, and if I can attach pix, I'll be posting plenty of them

Thanks for the welcome Gents.
I'll give the photo link a try

I dunno, seems like it didn't work. No pic.

Is there a limit in size a picture can be? Of how many pix can be attached by your membership file?
