Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

As teenagers, my future wife and I borrowed her parents '71 Suburban to take on camping trips. This photo taken at Lake Elsinore in 1975 shows her Burb loaded to the gills with dirt-bikes and gear...and yes...that is a 1970 Boss 302 Mustang with a motorcycle trailer attached to it! My best friend got that as a high school graduation gift...and he used it to tow his toys!!! If only we knew then what we know now! It might have taken over four decades...but at least I've got my Suburban. Getting the Boss 302 will be a little harder to pull-off, though!

Can someone share the trick on rotating photos? I've tried everything...except the right thing!
Thanks,
Woody

What are you posting pictures from, phone or computer? If on computer you can open them up in windows photo editor or MS paint and rotate them correctly there before posting. If by phone it depends on what phone you are using

Richard...I'm posting from my computer (MAC). I am able to rotate the crap out of them there, but even when the photo is rotated to the correct position, it doesn't correct itself when posted? Most of my photos post correctly, but I have one that only wants to post upside down...so I rotate it upside down on my computer and then upload it to the site. I can't fool the site as it still posts upside down!?! How did you rotate my photo?
Thanks,
Woody

If they originally came from an Iphone I think there was an issue with them still going back to a default setting. I will see if I can find the tread with that discussion in a little bit. Since I am using windows and no nothing about Mac I cant be sure what your fix will be but if I don't find the thread maybe someone will chime in that uses the mac platform

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

You might even try saving the photo as something different once you rotate it on your computer.

You were right on all accounts, Richard. The problem photos were taken with an IPhone...and moving the corrected photo to a different location/album allowed it to transfer to the post correctly! Attached is the photo that always transferred upside down! Thank you very much

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

Thanks Beach-Burban. Itís only had a couple holes in the roof filled where antennas were and been repainted after it was sold by a fire department. Other than that, itís a 34,000 mile original. People always ask about the spot, lol.

Same here regarding the spotlights...I've got two! The history of yours is very cool...and only 34,000 miles...that's unreal! Mine has 165,000, which isn't too bad considering age, but no "service history" like yours. Original owner was a Service Manager at a GMC dealership and an avid camper, so that's the story for my spots! A lot of replacement parts came from GMC vehicles that were "available" to him at the dealership, which is why there are no cutouts in the front bumper for turn signals (they're hidden behind the grill) but at least he used "genuine" parts from the day!

Great looking Burb! Love the color combo. The spots just fit perfect on these vehicles.

Re: 67-72 Burbs and Panels 2wheel drive only

Bought this last week. Bringing it home tonight. 69? C/1500 GMC custom. Think its a 69' based on front drum brakes and vinyl covered door panels? 350/350 truck. Bucket seats (missing). Posi. Probably pretty rare? Unfortunately it is rusted beyond saving, and will be a donor to a crew cab project, and parted out. The back is loaded with parts as well.
