Thanks Mike. I'm not trying to start an argument saying my picture is better, because there are better pictures. I'm just saying that out of all of these pictures, the best overall one(Car and background) is picture 8 IMO. If it was a first gen or 2nd gen, I think the picture would have gotten more votes.

Yea, go steal Doug's spot. But take a picture infront of the big doors that that building has so you can see the car's reflection in the background.

Dougs car is blue, granted your car is a lighter blue. It may work out. Or you could take the picture at night so that the car looks darker.

I'm also one of the people who thinks that more effort should be put into the picture. I rarely vote for anyone unless they have a nice car AND a nice picture to go along with it. With that said:

1 - ordinary 4th gen with photoshoped hood... + a car in the background - no go.

2. I think my cell phone makes nicer pictures than that.

3. Turd gen + an ugly building behind it. Truly winning combo.

4. Fast and the furious + domestic scene?

5. Same as 3.

6. Hey, NICE TRUCK!

7. Crappy picture, date in the corner and lack of anything exciting in the picture. Another winning combo.

8. Best Idea out of all of these, but the picture is too dark for my liking.

9. If the picture didn't suck I would have voted for this car. But I'm not a fan of "grocery store parking lot" photography.


Try harder?

I understand this is COTM, but the background of the picture does have something to do with it. I don't see how just taking a picture of your car in a parking lot with other cars should be good enough to win. But this is just my opinion....
But they are....and it is not a pure photo contest. Like Mike said it is a combo of both photo quality and the car itself, and a user may be swayed by either or both. I usually vote for the car I like best (I rarely vote in these things) as long as I don’t dislike the pic. For me a nice older car will normally trump a car I see driving down the street everyday. Maybe I’m voting partially for the hard work it took somebody to make it that nice – it sure is harder than buying a 2002 and slapping some parts on it.

I ended up voting #9. It’s not like there are too many around here anyway, so it’s not like every one is getting trumped by 1st or 2nd gens every month. I did almost vote for #1, but I don’t like the pic other than the very cool hood thing.

the simple fact is, i cant tow my unrestored 68 out for a photo shoot and have it win no matter who takes the pictures.

by the same token, a 400k copo car cant win if a 4 year old snaps the shot.

while its not a photo shoot, the picture has to not hurt anyones eyes

Thanks to everyone who voted for my '68. I really appreciate the support and would also like to give a shout out to all the other great looking cars that were in the running. Since the quality of the photo was talked about so much, I promise to take the car out and get some really good pictures of it as soon as the weather breaks!! I know that the one I submitted wasn't the best shot but it was the only one I had.
Thanks again,
Mark

Congrats on the win Mark. Hope to see the car out at a few of the NJFBOA events this summer, especially the East Coast Nats.
