Re: September 2018 ROTM

Remember guys and girls this is as much if not more a photo contest than a car contest.

Get creative and use some imagination when taking photos for the contest. Car doesn't have to be perfect. Think about how dealers can make an average car look like a show car in their advertisements.

Background, Lighting and Cropping are things to consider.

Re: September 2018 ROTM

that is the reason I quit entering my car!
I always thought it was ABOUT THE CAR
not the background
maybe we should just have a best photo shoot without any cars?

Iím just saying the presentation helps.

Most people donít take cars to a show to be judged without washing them? And doing other little things to enhance their presentation to the judges like Show boards and other things.

I agree itís all about the cars but the reality is people are voting on the pictures of the cars unless theyíve seen them in person.

Would be great to have you enter👍

Re: September 2018 ROTM

1968 Z/28. It was purchased by my dad in 1975 from the original owner and has been in the family since then. It was wrecked and put into storage in 1979 and sat there until I pulled it out in 2015 and began working on it. Since the 302 was gone it now has a 383 in it that is dressed like the 302. The only non GM sheet metal parts on the car are the AMD hood and header panel. There are still some minor things that need to be taken care of but the car officially went down the road for the first time since 1979 in July 2018. 4th picture is a throw back to when my dad owned it back in the 70's.

This 1970 Z28 was ordered by GM Experimental in Oshawa and wasn't suppose to be sold to the public. The car has custom cloth black interior, Z21, Z87, M20 but I installed M22 guts, 3.73 posi. After going through 2 solid lifter cams using the best oils, I've gone roller.



The car didn't even come with a rear spoiler emblem from the factory. My guess is that GM was keeping the 70 model a secret from behind until it was released to the public.

The car was seen by a GM Executive who wanted it. So through channels he was able to put it through as a GM Staff Car which went through Ontario Motor Sales Dealership in Oshawa. The GM Executive had to keep the car in his name for X amount of Months before he could sell it and when that time came he sold it to his brother, who I bought it from in 1981. In '85 I had the paint stripped and any panels that had filler in them was replaced. Yes I bought GM Qtrs for $250 each, etc.

This pic was taken in Fl in 1972 with the owner who I bought the car from.


When I was on a Poker Run last summer during Autofest wknd, we stopped for lunch and my Wife and I sat out on the patio so I could keep an eye on my car. Low and behold, I see some guy checking the car out for 20 min. I was ready to go over and ask him if I could be of any help. A few more min went buy and the guy left. 10 min later some guy comes up to me at the patio and said "Mark", I said yes, then I looked up and it was the guy who I bought the car from. He asked if it was for sale and I said no, then my Wife said, "he's been taking real good care of the car". He replied "he's had it long enough". He said if I ever decide to sell it to call him or his brother. I told him that one of my friends has 2 1970 Z28's, one Citrus green and the other Mulsune blue and he replied, "I want my car". End of story.
