Gooding & Company beat out rivals RM Sotheby's and Bonhams with a 2019 Scottsdale gross of $48.2 million, led by its six top-selling Ferraris....The top seller on the day was the much-heralded 1963 Ferrari 250 GT SWB at $7,595,000. The steel-bodied, dual-purpose street and track car is one of just 166 built and one of just 77 second-series cars trimmed to roadgoing spec. The winning bid was right in the middle of Gooding's presale estimate.

Man goes crazy. Should I drive it? No, ah yeah, ah no, ah yeah. Crap!!
Could anyone use a 1961 Ferrari 250GT California?
It needs a little work...
Windows 10 and the Microsoft Edge browser won't let me post photos any place but the major Social Networks like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Pretty nice. Trouble with buying things like that is getting the fun of using it. Ive got a couple of firearms in that area (not worth near that much) , I want to go to the range but cant bring myself to do it. Id go crazier trying not to put a key in that cars ignition. If I had that kind of money Id be even crazier.
Only JR can post photos here.
You can use html that loads a photo when you click on it.
< img src=”xxxxxxxxxxx” >
where xxxxxxxx is found by right-clicking on photo and selecting properties.
A year ago, Edge sometimes had a “Copy Link” selection that would auto-Paste the .jpg address.
Now, Edge only has a right-click “Copy” selection. It does nothing at all with photos - just a blank, on the photo, and when I click “Paste” on Free Republic, nothing again.
I have put several hours of research into this, plus posting questions on Microsoft chat rooms, and no one has an answer.
What is "JR?"
Thanks for trying to help.
You couldn’t possibly have enough money to buy (and insure) such a car and not also have an overwhelming urge to drive it. They’re like the classic war birds, better they die in a fiery crash than rot to pieces on the floor of a museum hangar.
I just emailed the link to my hubby so he had something enjoyable to read on the train tomorrow morning.
I built a rifle fixture to test family heirlooms at a distance as the hand-me-downs had not been fired in living memory.
The old guys knew what they were doing and all went well.
Still no luck.
In the past, I've tried creating a separate photo file, then posting the image from the file to FR - no luck
I have also tried the “Inspect Element” selection before.
That brings up about 200 lines of code, and maybe a half dozen “src=” URLs, but almost none of them end in “.jpg,” and when they do, they don't work, either.
I think the main problem is that so few people use “Edge” nobody really knows how it works, or what's wrong when it does not work.
I am hoping to recover the simplicity of Internet Explorer - right click on the image and paste it straight into FR.
Actually, Edge used to have a “Copy Link” selection that would do exactly that, too, but that right-click selection has disappeared.
Thanks for trying to help.
Reminds me of this:
Saving the image then posting it to Tinypic isn't exactly Sisyphean. I do it all the time. I looked up Microsoft Edge and they save pictures exactly the same way I do. If that's too much work for you then you aren't really looking for help, you're just looking for an excuse to avoid posting pictures.
When Edge first came out, it had a “Copy Link” selection that posted one-click photos to FR exactly like Internet Explorer did.
Then, without explanation, “Copy Link” disappeared, and none of the recommended “solutions” I have tried since have worked.
Why would I download some photo storage app I have never heard of before, when I can store all the photos I want to on Microsoft Cloud?
Like I said before, I can one-click photos to every kind of Social Media, plus to Microsoft Cloud, but I can't send them to Free Republic.
Somebody knows why that is happening, and eventually I'll find the answer.
