Andy, check the dates on the C6 on the front page, they are the same as the C5. You mightwant to correct that.

Hmmm, that C4 looks familiar!

I think it's a great idea to rotate the generational link images. That way, many members' Vette's can be showcased!

Well, in my opinion, it's one of the nicest C3s around. I am fond of the color, but the look just jumps at me.

(This is not to say other C3s are not nice, I just have a thing for green.)

Ok, photo update!

I have added Wes' kick ass 62 as the C1 icon.

Anyone with the stones to drive a nearly 50 YO car from CA to KY wins in my book.

The pic in question, according to Wes, was taken at the NCM.

I have added a bit of welcoming text. That image was taken by DB and is of Curtis' 2 vettes, before he sold the C4. I loved that image and had to find a use for it!

Andy I know a few guys here in town with very nice C2 Corvettes.

I don't have any shoots on the books but as soon as I do some real nice ones you'll be the first to see what I have to offer.

I donno if anyone noticed, but I have come up with my own C2 picture!

@Bill - I could use that... but I would need the scan emailed. The resolution sucks. So if you can scan it, please do so at the highest resolution possible. I will have to fix the colour a bit, but that's no biggie.

@DB - if you got anything better, that's great! I am really out to get members cars, but until Bill gets his done, we don't have any active C2 ppl.

@Wes - You're most welcome! Do you like the image I created? It worked very nicely, really. Excellent scaling.

My goal is to create each image so they are about the same size. I don't want huge size variants. Most inconsistant.

Also, thoughts on the new "important links" button?

What dpi would you like?

Andy, the pic looks good. That one was actually taken the day we arrived in Bowling Green. On that leg, we had driven from Memphis, went to Graceland to get some pics in front of the sign, then headed up to BG. We arrived as the museum was closing and were asked to leave the parking lot. That picture was taken outside the chain, that blocks the drive, after we were chased-off.

Thanks so much. I really appreciate it.

I loved the lighting that morning so much that I told Curt we needed a peaceful spot to pull the cars into for some shooting.

I'm really glad we did, as we left a huge car show that weekend down at the Lake of the Ozarks.

I got some very good shots of the C3, the C4, and both together. I was driving the C4 for that trip, and that was a real treat.

I may have some shots of that C4, Andy, at one of the Hooters Bikini car washes...if you think you can maybe use one or two of those. LOL.

Keep sending pics! I may not use them now, but I plan on rotating cars in and out.

Also, DB, when you get one of your C3 ready, send it along.
