Ride of the month August 2011




Hello Everyone,

So we are going to have a Ride of the month contest. Some basic rules.

1) All models compete against each other.

2) If you have won in the past 3 months you are not eligible (e.g. if you won for the month of April the next month you could enter would be August)

3) No "photoshopping" of photos in a manner that manipulates the look of the Jeep. White balance and other tasteful color edits are allowed. Changing the color of the vehicle or accessories is NOT allowed. HDR and other such effects, presets or filters are allowed but frowned upon. Anyone that is thought to have violated this rule will be given a very short period of time (hours) to provide unaltered photos. If the Admin team feels that anyone has violated this rule they will be disqualified from any future contests if they are found to have used altered photos.

4) You may only enter your own personal Jeep. Company built show Jeeps are not allowed.

5) Each entry is allowed a 1 photos and specs. You are not allowed to change your photos once you enter. To enter add your photos to a post in the contest thread and they will be moved by a moderator into the main contest post (the thread originating post). Photos will be added to the post in the order of entry.

We will then have a poll for members to vote. The Ride of the month will be entered in a draw with other Ride of the Month winners from the Autoguide.com network for a chance to win a free oil change.

Let's see whatcha got!

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Some nice "cars" you guys got. Never was much into muscle myself. And I officially don't own a "car" anymore, but here's my previous daily before I got the Jeep.


Choose your friends & choose your enemies. But choose wisely.

^^^^^^^^^^^^

1976 was Pontiac's 50th anniv. So they brought back the '69 carosel red for this year only.

Mine is a 76.......... with a 73 nose !!!!! Your are correct....

The Project is moving forward.
