In photobucket under share links choose the fourth one down by IMG. copy the info in that field and paste it into your post. When you preview your post you can check to see if it captured the image.

Looks like you used the email or direct link. Use the IMG option.

Paste the IMG link and just put a blank line between pictures so that each shows separately. It gets easier as you figure it out. Just like VW 's.

Damn... you dont mess around! Didnt you just get this car last week!

On a plus side.... looks like the perfect car to slice up and make into something you can call your own.
