Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

Yeah it was and nobody. I have had to beat the bushes the past few months to get any entries, let alone five to be a real competition. So I guess we go back into the cave until spring wakes up some interest.

Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

The key is the "recent picture" clause I tried to get my 69 out for some fall pics, but it was a tough fall family wise. Now it is locked on the lift by the in-laws stuff (underneath) that had to be cleared out to sell the their house. Now the salt trucks have been out. My car won't see daylight until April

But all those southern Camaros can still get out for a pic! Come on guys, there should be some Florida, Texas, Arizona, southern CA Camaros that can enter!

this is VERY TRUE, but some of the cars HAVE ENTERED more than once to keep it going.
when you see your car only get 1or 2 votes it is hard to keep entering to only have your car laughed at again

Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

Just like any car show Kevin. My 68 Z didn't win when I entered but there were some damn nice cars that month plus I take crappy pics which does not help. I cant put my wife in the pics either(I would win!)
I have voted for your car FWIW, I dig the color and its stance.
Nobodys laughing except at Everett's!!!

Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

Kevin I hear you. Originally I had hoped that the interest here would be cult like since we have over a thousand people logged on at any given time on average - 700 right now at 0745 hours - and that would allow categories each month so the really great but non flashy plain Jane factory car would not look bad against some mega millions resto mod. But sadly most months never generate over a 100 or so votes, and interest in nominating is feast or famine. I understand in the great white north and northern US many cars are under wraps but that's less that half the USA, and there are tons of members in the south and southwestern states where its warm all year.

Monday is Blue Monday 2016 - The most depressing day of the year so I understand the lack of enthusiasm - I'll leave the nominations for February open another couple days to see if five cars step forward.

I was looking forward to an excuse to clean my car... now I don't have any reason to and that makes me sad.

Seriously, though, after the 200r4 swap, EFI and turbo in about 2 more years then hopefully I can win one of these darn things!

Seems guys here don't like a measily 250 hp...



OK, fine, so I'm missing 2 pistons, 2 rods, and a head.

Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

One suggestion, how about a theme during the winter months? only 6cyls, only 67s or 68s or 69s, etc. Projects, Pro tours, Pics of wives , etc?

Re: February 2016 RIDE of the MONTH Entries!

How about taking the top 3 runner ups from the previous month rolled over as entrants in the following month?

That IMO would keep the ball rolling.
