    Creating a New Album

    I have a number of Photo Albums and I know how to upload additional pics to them. However, generally, my Albums have titles that pertain to a particular subject. So, how do I create a new Album? I found how to create a "Personal Album" but it appears that it will be private! Thoughts?

    Feeler........ 2009 CR Engine minus Turbo (for sale)

    So, here is the story. A friend's 2009 Jetta blew the turbo (broken shaft) just out of warranty around 2012 or 13. VW would not cover it, obviously. So, he found an engine in a local Junk Yard (Knoxville, TN) with Turbo cheaper than he could buy a new Turbo. Then he sold the car back to VW...
