The code you want to grab/copy in your example is:
So you'd delete anything else.
Then you'd bracket that with the IMG code that you can get by hitting the IMG button (hit it once to open the IMG code, paste the jpg photo link, then hit the IMG button again to close the code). The code goes between the "s.
Someone can probably explain it better. Or shoot me an email the next time you're having trouble (steveredmunds.com). And you'll have to handtype that email address since the won't copy and paste right.

Last call for the little white Berlina [hint] in #35166.

Alfa Romeo Berlina 2000?

Definitely not a 2000, it's a 1971 Alfa-Romeo Giulia Super aka type 105, most Supers had 1300cc motors, some had 1600 and there was a 1760cc Perkins diesel starting in 1976. Then there were the endless variants including TI, and Nuova Super versions.
The tipo 105 was popular with the Carabinieri and as a taxicab during it's long production run lasting from '62 to '78.

Sort of Orphan Annie.
Peugeot 309 from about 1990.
When Peugeot bought the faint remnants of Chrysler Europe, they acquired the Ryton plant near Coventry and the plants in France. I think that this ws supposed to be badged as a Talbot, although Simca based. Logically, it should have been badged as a Peugeot 306, but being non Peugeot made, they called it a 309.
I know that I've driven one, belonging to a colleague, but have absolutely no recollection of it. I do recall that it looks like a sedan from the front and a hatchback from the rear.
A remarkably ungraceful design.

at first take, I thought some derivative of Fiat 124 Spyder, but proportions look larger. The grille and tyres make wonder it it is American.
Maybe some American one-off using mid 60's Italian design cues.

It has nothing in common with the Fiat 124 Spider, or any Fiat. You're correct about its origin, it was American-built in Oakland, California.
A hint: power came from the 3.5 Liter Buick V8 or the 5 Liter Buick V8 and it was built in coupe and spider versions.

That'd be Milt Brown and Newt Davis' Apollo sports car, Buick-powered, and given a lot of respect in the collector car world today. They are steel-bodied, and the car pictured here is quite rare---only 11 convertibles were made. The design should resemble an Italian car, as it was penned by Scaglione

Yep, it's a rare 1962 Apollo GT Spider. Eventually production was shifted from California to Frank Reisner's Intermeccanica in Turin Italy.
