You can add more photos/updates to your cars page by simply clicking the "reply" button at the bottom of your page. Now the good bit! When you create your Garage page, a topic is automatically created for you in the "Members Cars" section of the forum. Members can comment/reply on your cars new topic/thread just like in a regular forum topic. Please also see the below topic.
