Who do you want to see on the 2008 Cadillac calendar? Keep in mind that the biggest, highest resolution shots will look best. Multiple choice is permitted. Pick those you like the best.. The voting will last one week (7 days)... Aaaaaaaand begin!

(Pick from here: http://cadillacforums.com/cadillac-calendar/)

If you want, pick 12 that you'd like to see on the calendar...

Yeah, I believe it is, Zig. Also, mine is a "D'Elegance-ee", as Jay Leno would say, NOT a concourse. And the high res shot is at the bottom of the other thread, compliments of Crown Vic Owner.

For that matter, mine is just a "Brougham," not a "Fleetwood Brougham," though many people affectionately call them Fleets. ;)

Sorry Dope, but you have a Brougham only and a Coupe DeVille. No Fleetwood in the names of '89 RWDs. Sorry... ;)

Wow, not one Catera? I know they're not popular but there are many active Catera owners here who have beautiful cars worthy of nomination. Mine isn't one of them unfortunately, but Catera V's most definitely is. It's the only Lingenfelter Catera in existence, with a 7.0 liter Corvette C5R V8 and a T56 6 speed tranny.

http://www.cadillacforums.com/photopost/watermark.php?file=5859&size=1

I wouldn't mind looking at it for a month. I can't speak for the owner and am not nominating it. I just picked it as an example of the great Cateras out there. It's a shame there won't be any in the calendar.

The calendar submission discussions were up and running for months. There were email announcements as well. We can't come to every person, personally, and let them know about the calendars.. Maybe next time we'll do a forum-wide announcement - but I think we even did that.... I don't remember.. People should visit the lounge from time to time - if not for anything else but to be social with the rest of us. The discussions were 'stuck' on top for months...

Unfortunately, I don't have the time to frequent all the areas on this forum. The CTS-V guys keep me entertained along with other forums I moderate or participate with. The only reason I knew to vote was one of the entrants posted up a link in the CTS-V forum.

A forum wide PM distribution of messages affecting the forum as a whole is a great idea. (Anyone ever float the idea of a nation-wide Cadillac Forum gathering?)

P.S. Oh, Great Lord Cadillac!! May your esteemed presence see fit to contribute to this poor, unworthy Cadillac owner's casino account. I am but a very poor neohpyte willing to work tirelessly for casino bucks.:yup:

Aw, come on. You got 14 votes so far, 93devilleusmc only got one! That's just sad.

So, to 93DevilleUSMC; I love your car, it's nice. But honestly, the picture could have been a lot better. And that's half of the vote. So, do some experimenting and ge some cool shots in time for next year, and I know you'll make it in. You've got one clean Deville, now just showcase it. ;)

Thank you very much, sir! Hopefully by next year, I'll have some much better shots. Given the quality of your photos, any tips you have for me would be appreciated.

I loved that new shot of your Phaeton, by the way.

Sal, let me know how to email you the hi-res version(4.2MB) of my picture. Also, I have nearly identical shots without the SHOs in the background. It's cleaner, but also less exciting, IMO...

I also have hi-res versions of the other shots that I posted in the original thread. Let me know what you need and I'll shoot that over to you...

So I want to know :) For those of you who didn't vote for my car, was it that you don't like it or just something else was nicer.

If there's something undesirable about my car I need to know. I'm a crowd pleaser :)

If it's just that something else was nice I totally respect that. There are several very very nice cars around here and I was honored to make the calendar last year.

If I could change anything, I'm not a huge fan of those wheels. And the little things like the satellite antenna and EZ Pass in the window detract as well. Plus, I'd find a lot without the lines visible, it detracts from the shot.

That's perfect feedback. The kicker of it is that all the things you mentioned are the reasons I wanted to reshoot the car but I never got the chance. That photo was never really intended to be 'the one' but it was the only decent shot I had at the time.

:)

Thanks again
