Which category should I use?
Find the category in the dropdown menu that best fits your picture. Here are some basic guidelines:
  • Do not put Parts in the Vehicles categories
  • Do not put Toys in the Vehicles categories
  • When posting Show photos, do not use the the Group Shows/Swap Photos category for every picture
  • Post pics of individual cars in their correct vehicle category and include the show name in the Show Title field
  • Individual category placement tips:
    • Barndoor: Place all Barndoors here, regardless of model
    • Campers: All Campers, regardless of type, should be placed in either "55-67" or "68 and up" campers only
    • Special Models:For Factory models designed for specific commercial purposes: i.e. Emergency vehicles, High Roofs, Wide Bed Single Cabs, it DOES NOT apply to options like RHD or walk thru
    • Off-Road: Baja Bugs and Sand Rails
    • Kit Cars: All Dune Buggies, Porsche replica Speedsters, Pumas...
    • Coach-built VWs:Rometsch, Hebmuller, Dannenhauer & Stauss...
    • Other VWs: Watercooled VWs, Schwimmwagen, Brasilia, Trikes...
    • Rusty VWs:When you spot those rusting heaps in junkyards or fields
    • Racing: Action racing shots from VW shows

Why did you move my picture?
In order to maintain a useful, searchable, resource, all pictures fit in specific categories and are moved at our discretion.
Back to top
Why was my picture deleted?
Was it VW related? Photos are also deleted if they are duplicates, contain nudity or other offensive imagery, glitched pictures, or of very poor picture quality. We reserve the right to move your picture to a more appropriate category, or delete it if it does not meet our guidelines. DO NOT add any nudity to the Gallery. We will report your IP address to your service provider for abuse..

Do you accept non-VW related pictures?
No, any Non-VW related photos will be deleted immediately.

Can I upload videos to the Gallery?
No, videos are not allowed in the Gallery due to bandwidth concerns. You need to host them on your own site and post a link to them in the Forums.

Can I put my picture in multiple categories?
This is almost never appropriate, it's best to pick the one category that fits best.

General Gallery Issues
How can I contribute useful submissions to the Gallery?
First, make sure you upload clear, properly sized photos of VW related subjects. Before you upload a photo, please consider if it is useful or interesting to other site members. Maintaining a searchable archive only works if your submission is placed in the correct category with an accurate description, and take care to spell words correctly. Otherwise, the search function is useless.

How do I add a stolen vehicle notification?
Select the Stolen vehicles category when you add a photo to the Gallery.
Back to top
Can I submit my VW brochure, manual, etc, to the Gallery?
If possible, we would rather have high quality scans for our extensive archives section. You will be credited for any submissions. If you do not have access to a scanner, we can help. Please contact Everett Barnes for more information.
