As many of you know, I have a web site dedicated to 1969 Camaro Z/28 cars. Within the site there is also a Visitors Rides page where anyone who submits pictures of a 69 camaro can have them added to this section of the web site.

I just wanted to post this to razz a few of you US Based 1969 Camaro Owners because most of the cars now featured on this section of the site are Canadian cars. Many of them are beauties so get those pictures of US Owned cars coming!

Canada 05 vs. USA 01 (hehe)

Here is a link to the page where pictures can be submitted!

Game on and the ball is in your court USA!

I agree Bart. That is one sweet looking ride. If the owner wants to send me a picture to post on the site I would love to see it on there.

I don't know Jeff personally, but if you do, please ask him if he is ok with me posting pictures of his car on my site. If so he can email me directly at 69rsz28@telus.net

Thanks

Thanks for all the submissions today everybody. The cars sent in today were posted to the site tonight and there are some "Kick ***" rides in this selection. USA is now well represented on the site now but keep those sexy 69 rides coming.

Check these cars out!

Hey Hugger - Thanks for posting my cars pic and info, it's cool to be a part of your site. I really like your page format but by converting the files to .gif format you've really reduced the picture quality. Just using the image I sent you as an example; You reduced the display size from the orig and reduced the number of colors to 256 the .gif image ends up being a larger file size. The real issue is reducing the number of colors, it makes everything look blotchy.

Even rather old computers by todays standards can run 32,000 plus color resolution with ease. If your video display resolution is set at 256 colors you won't see a difference in the 2 pic's below other than size. If it's set to anything higher than 256 the differences will be obvious.

I only used my pic as an example because I have the orig I provided to compare. The yellow and green cars on your site almost look like water colors or chalk pictures instead of photographs.

Please don't take this as negative, it's ment in a constructive way and my guess is your PC is set to 256 color or you would have seen this already. Again you have a great site and the layout is very well done...

Question

Maybe that's why it takes FOREVER to load that page? I can't even get it to load all the pictures, it gets about halfway down the list of cars, and the rest of them don't show up, I just get a white box with an "X" in the upper left hand corner!
