ADMIN - Submit your pics for the 2007 Calendar!

OK, this is the official call for entries for the 2007 California Special Calendar. Please start gathering your best photos and submit them no later than Friday Sept 15, 2006. Last year's calendar was a great success and I'm looking forward to another great one this year.:)

We'll all vote on the photos and the top 12 will be used. If you were in the calendar last year can submit again, but not the same photo. You can submit a few shots if you aren't sure which is best, but I'll only be able to use one for the final voting. Also, if you're one of those fortunate enough to have more than one Special, please only submit one. (or maybe a group shot?)

If your photos are digital email me at 1968gtcs@gmail.com (has more space than my normal email) If you have prints that you need me to scan please mail them to me at:

Jon Hanna
P.O. Box 16775
Phoenix, AZ 85011-6775

OK, here's the catch.. Photos have to be a minimum size to be able to print cleanly on a full size calendar. If it's a digital image it needs to be 1800x1200 pixels minimum (obviously bigger is better). Basically a 2.0 Megapixel or better digital camera will work. Any lower resolution and they just won't print well. Even the largest photos in the Gallery are too small. Sorry! And please don't take a smaller pic and change the resolution to bump it up to 1800x1200. It doesn't work that way unfortunately. The original needs to be at that resolution.

For those that don't have one hanging on your wall from last year, here's a shot of how it turned out:

Thanks in advance for all the great photos I expect to get! :)

My car does`nt have the "Mustang" script on the sides. Would it still be accepted if the pic was good enough?
I`m not very good with cameras, I have a 35mm, should I have the pics put on disc or what can be done to have them come out big enough. Will I have to find a digital camera?

Absolutely. That's such a minor thing I don't expect it would make a difference to anyone. In fact one of the winners last year doesn't have the script, and to be honest I didn't even notice until you brought it up and I looked at last year just out of curiosity.

The important thing (I think) is a well lit, well focused shot in a great location. Of course ultimately it's the members who decide with their votes.

35mm is fine. You can send me the photo by mail and I can scan it, but if you can have it put on disc where you develop it and then email it will probably turn out better. Sometimes scans from prints lose quality.

Jon;
That was my car that was missing the side "mustang" script on the front fenders. As strange as it sounds most folks at shows like the clean look on the fenders. I had planned on adding it but, for now she will stay as is.

PLEASE can we make the numbers for each day larger? Kinda hard to read the date from a distance.

How far away are you standing Jason? You're not taking aim I hope

As long as we're making requests ... could we add the prior and next month little calendar on each page?

And don't forget the missing holidays

Even without all that it's a great calendar and I'll still be purchasing a few again.

If any of the prior suggestions does anything to diminish the size or quality of the car pics, I vote to leave it alone.

HP numbers are good and all, but they're like asking someone how much they can bench. What difference does it make, if I can still kick your ass.

I'll see what I can do, but the calendar pages are a template that I can't edit. There may be other templates I can use. I'll look into it.

No, it won't. The car photos will still take up the entire page above the fold. It's just a matter of how the page below the fold (the actual calendar page) is laid out. Again, I'll see what I can do, but may not have much latitude.

Maybe there are a lot of procrastinators out there waiting until the last minute to submit pics, but at the moment we only have 4 cars submitted.

If you plan on submitting photos please post here or email me. The way it's looking the calendar won't happen this year. It's been such a success the last 2 years, so I'd really hate to cancel it from lack of interest.

i went out and took some good shots of my cs in the hills with some nice backgrounds...im still trying to decide which angle...rear/side or front/side...

i dont think i'll be able to get a picture of a really nice burnout for this calendar, sorry guys...maybe next year...i had to write an apology letter to a lady and her husband because about a year ago i did a burnout pretty much right in front of their house, i was testing out my line lock and this really upset them, and i cant blame them so i really cant risk taking a picture of a burnout on the street bcuz its illegal and inconsiderate to neighbors..i'll have to wait until next time at the racetrack during the day and i just hope that i can take a decent picture regarding the background, my smoke cloud will have to cover up the advertisements on that wall from last years calendar shot.

Jon, im going to choose a picture in the next couple days, will there be enough submissions for the calendar this year?
