Another amazing turnout! It was difficult choosing and unfortunately not everyone will make the finals but remember, you can try again next month! Here are your top 8!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to submit a photo! This poll will close in 3 days and winner announced shortly after.

Good luck to all. So hard to pick this month!

I guess the 'powers that be' had the same quandary since they gave us so many choices! :D

Maybe future contests can require that the owner of the car also be the one that took the photo.
Just a suggestion.
Why do that? It is not part of the stated rules. Also, how can you tell if the owner actually took the photograph or not? Would there be a requirement that the car is sitting still? But what about an owner who had someone else drive the car, while they took the photograph? How will we know if they are telling the truth or not? What if the car was sitting still, but a professional took the photograph? We would never know.

What if the owner IS a professional photographer (remember J. Latigo). Should he be denied entry because he is "too good" at his job?

I don't think trying to make such a rule would be practical.

I'm not sure if 6 is a promo shot, Google: Malcolm Perez, looks like he's a photographer in Houston.
I voted for 6 because it's a nice shot and doesn't have black wheels.

I suppose you just gave the ultimate compliment to #6: you believe her picture is so good that it could not be her car, but rather a promo shot from Chevy.

I remember many months ago when she first posted that photograph, along with many others, of her car. Yes, she had a professional take pictures of her car for her, but that is not against the rules (nor should it be, for various practical reasons, as I outlined above).

What is one to do who wishes to enter this contest? Shall it become a "have a nice picture, but not too nice, because, if it is too nice, then it isn't allowed"? I won't turn this into a political discussion, but I will comment that I wonder what ever happened to life as it used to be in this country, where excellence was celebrated instead of trying to force everyone to conform to being average? When I was a kid, people played sports to win, and went in the classroom to excel to their highest potential, even when that meant leaving others behind who could not keep up. From what I see with my niece and nephew in school now, participation stickers are celebrated instead of kids trying to excel.
