Let's start a V-Series car of the month campaign. Anyone interested? If so, please post pictures of your V-Series Cadillac along with a notation of any modifications you'd like to mention.

Thank you very much!

That is up for discussion. But considering we're doing this for four separate V-Series models, it can't be too expensive.. Maybe a front page mention on this site, cadillacmagazine.com and stickers... Maybe some free time as a supporting member.....

Seriously, it's a great idea. You should have the car of the month picture as the header at the top of the forum index.

Great Idea! would we have to submit our pictures in each forum ?( Example Cts v in cts v forum, Xlr v in xlr v forum, Sts V in sts v forum, or Will you have a general submission on each section?

Thank you. If I can figure out a way to get the car on the left side and integrated with the forum header text, I'll do that...

Each of the V-Series forums have a topic just like this to submit vehicles for consideration...

In regards to the quote below, I'd try and post up better pictures if you have them. The size and quality of the photos are very important when people vote...

Yeah that's what I thought. So many nice ones posted in other threads but no one seems interested in posting it here. I would have thought this would be many pages long by now.

How's about members submitting their cars for consideration to someone or some group who selects a new car each month. A new winner will be selected each month based on the way they present the car and the value of the info they provide about their mods and a history of the car. They can send a PM to the judges with the post. There are some killer cars on this site along with some very classy daily drivers, some roll racers, track rats and waxers. We should have a sticky for the submittable and come up with some folks who make the selection each month. This could be fun.

I'm voting for Tommy, but he needs to clean that car up a bit more ... looks hazy/dusty/something. Probably those Winnepeg roads.

Thanks LOL, yes my car is dirty in the pics, I can clean it up for some glam pics(or I do have other shots). I can also post more info on my car so far like cranked suggested, I just kind of threw it out there and used pics I had on file.

I voted for Tommy. Looks like he has paid his dues in Mod Hell and it looks sharp. :thumbsup:

CTSV_Rob
08-28-11, 04:12 PM
Looks like the mods think we need more activity in this thread. Anyone have a wheel wrap or dash kit installed in their V?

















:D

I nominate JimmyH even though he doesn't have his V anymore. You did keep your car in nice shape Jimmy.

I'd like to see LUNARX in the mix for next month. That car is one of many on the forum that must be seen.
