The top 12 participants by Friday, October 27th - are in the "newer Cadillac" calendar.

There were bearly enough participants to have an "older model" Cadillac calendar - so there is no need for a vote.. The older model calendar will have the following people's cars posted:

96Fleetwood, Benzilla, Dopestar_156, Highonchai, HotRodSaint, I_Luv_Caddys8792, Nick Campagna, Pimpin88, Twinhollow

Luckily, a couple of these people had more than one car to submit... Like I said, we bearly made 12...

As for the "newer model" Cadillac calendar, you'll need to vote here.. You should vote for 12 members - one each for the 12 vehicles that will be included in the calendar. There were 20 participants total...

The particpant's vehicles can be found here:

Unfortunately, some cars are missing from the very original post where people posted pictures. However, there was plenty of notice in the "if your name is here, post your pictures" and "final chance to submit your pictures" threads. I need to get this thing off the ground and I can't go chasing everyone who isn't around enough to see what's going on... Sorry!

If this calendar works out well, we'll do more before the beginning of the year and get more people involved. For now, we really don't even know if this calendar is going to be a 'hit' or not.. If it looks to be good, we'll all go the extra mile and work harder to be even more organized in the future...

This is gonna be a great calendar.... I will be ordering some....

Is it too late to beg for your vote??? Heh heh, I shoulda paid Jon whatever he wanted to come over and take pictures of my car for me, might have increased my chances....

Obviously, if my car makes it, I will be ordering a ton of these.... that would be ridiculously cool.... I'm shamelessly begging, please vote for me... I'm putting my pride aside.... :canttalk:

This is really a great idea. Thanks, Sal. Thanks to everyone who sent in pictures. This is gonna be sweet, no matter what....

Stoneage, I hadn't seen that picture with the sunshine skyway in the backround.... that's your best pic, by far....2 great feats of modern engineering, juxtaposed together... nice.

And congrats to everyone who made the "older" calendar....

I joined just this past week. The weather here in Iowa was crappy all week, so I didn't get a chance to take some pixs. I'd like to submit some for the next calendar. Thanks, Sal, for organizing this. I do have a question, though... Are we voting solely for the car itself, or should the artistic way the car was photographed have some bearing in our votes?

As I've said in other posts, I'm not especially fond of the new Cadillac bodystyles of the CTS, STS, etc., but the artistic quality of the photos of some of these vehicles was pretty impressive.

Your thoughts?

Ouch. I think this is a popularity contest unless my personal tastes are WAY OFF the mainstream.

Half of my favorites are the bottom dwellers.

Most of the Caddys here are great looking but many of the pictures are not. Hardrock's and Jon's 3rd pic are among the best of any. Anyone can take a picture of a great car. Very few can make a great car look HAWT. I'd rather see a bland car captured well than a great car captured poorly.

I think it may be a little, but I know for myself it wasn't. I voted for what I liked, and I'm sure most have done the same. I did try and spread my vote around though because I didn't want an entire CTS calander. I voted for both the people mentioned above, but I think Hardrock is getting hurt because he only had 1 great picture rather than the 3.

Most calendars have a cover which would allow 4 more pics. This would allow four more to enter. Wadda you think?:)
Maybe the most votes gets the front page, 2nd inside cover etc.

I was actually planning on taking the front cover myself - because I'm an ass.. No.. Really.. I wanted to get a rear-shot of my Escalade on there because of the large "CadillacOwners.com" sticker I have on the back.. I figured it would be perfect to show representation of this site..

I'd rather give members a full month to be on - because then there's at least 28 days of seeing their Caddy.. The front page is going to be long forgotten after the first day the calendar goes up...

In the magazine business the Front cover is the most expensive, followed by the back cover, then inside front and inside back.

Yeah, I can see the value - being the front cover and all.. But calendars seem like they should be different. At least to me.. When you're done reading the newspaper or a magazine, you put it back - normally with the cover facing up.. Ya know? A calendar, however - once you hang it up - the cover is gone. You're not going to see it until after the year is over when you pull it down.. But I understand where you're coming from...

I'm putting my actual ass on the cover now...

I think our calander will be lacking some umph. I dont see any american muscle, just classy cars. I noticed no engine bay shots, not 1 pic of a maggie, CAI, headers, painted calipers, what do these cars not have under bellys, but a few exhaust tips shots. Where is the preformance, or is the old foggies version??? There is Driftcaddy, and the CTSV-R out there but since they wern't submitted they dont count? I should have submitted a montage of photos I want to see in a calandar even if the car wasnt mine and i hijacked them from another thread. I think I know where all the preformance shots are, but it seems that that calendar isnt coming out anymore. And its a shame too!

A December snow scene would be nice as would a grave yard scene like DopeStar was working on for October. Colored leaves around the Caddy would make nice October/November scene and so forth.

I have a feeling this will be 12 months of monotony.

Dubb yours def should be included, i didnt even notice u wernt up there, on second thought I think alot of V's that posted once didnt make the final cut. Not one STS-V or XLR-non-V :confused:

Could have swore there was a V calendar that had everything I wanted to see in it... Wonder what happened to it...

With the various threads you had to be on your toes to keep up. If you lose focus you lose out. As you can see there was some really nice Caddy's that made the cut. Some pics had some minor flaws that Boomer has offered her special skill to correct them.

I had last year's V Calendar and it was excellent and very professional thanks to WW's talents.

Unfortunately? My pics were in the original thread? My links are still active? Go chasing? "if you posted in the previos thread, don't post again"? Right..................

I'm with you and others who posted in this thread that "missed the cut" because they didn't post their pictures in the three other threads about the calendar.

I posted in the original thread. Then the next thread for "last call - please post if your name is not listed below" had my name listed so I followed instructions and did not bother to post again because that's what the intructions stated.

That would have been another "old" Caddy for that calendar.

Here are my high-res pics once again, still the same old active links I posted before.

I'm with you and others who posted in this thread that "missed the cut" because they didn't post their pictures in the three other threads about the calendar.

I posted in the original thread. Then the next thread for "last call - please post if your name is not listed below" had my name listed so I followed instructions and did not bother to post again because that's what the intructions stated.


Thats what happened to me... i got confused with all the calander threads and didn't post my pics in the one that really counted. I saw my name on the list and thought I was in.

That's just the thing... according to the directions, because we WERE on the list, our pictures were already logged and we did not have to re-submit.

Or so I thought. :thepan:

I know it got a little confusing but here is the original thread with if your name is listed here. It does say to repost 3 of your favorite images. http://www.cadillacforums.com/forums/cadillac-forums-lounge/86323-2007-cadillac-calendar-image-submission-your.html?highlight=if+your+name+is+listed#post821 375. I think we should all cut a litlle slack here. This is the first time a calander is being put together and things always have bumps. I think many great looking cars were missed, but the post was there for a while. Hopefully it will all get sorted out the 2nd time around.

Yeah some of the avatars have gotten ugly. CIWS, Boombotz, Sal's used to be ugly (the alien), then good (the guy with the sunglasses), now its just creepy (the rapist/murder pic, who looks high)...

LittleB always had a nice one, F's is one of the best.

Sorry, but people either posted more than 3 pictures or as few as 1 picture. The thread that asked "if your name IS ON THIS LIST" required you to post your THREE (no more, no less) BEST pictures for consideration. I think you read the instructions wrong...


I'm with you and others who posted in this thread that "missed the cut" because they didn't post their pictures in the three other threads about the calendar.

I posted in the original thread. Then the next thread for "last call - please post if your name is not listed below" had my name listed so I followed instructions and did not bother to post again because that's what the intructions stated.

That would have been another "old" Caddy for that calendar.

Here are my high-res pics once again, still the same old active links I posted before.

Some of you guys really need to take a step back and relax. There were so many Calendar threads because so many people couldn't read instructions. Too many people did NOT follow the rules. People either submit ONE picture or up to 10 pictures. I'm not deciding which three make the cut. So there were TWO MORE additional threads to the original.

ONE: Last call to post your pictures (for the first time)!

TWO: If you name is on this list - PLEASE POST YOUR BEST THREE PICTURES (again!)! Some STILL didn't follow directions...

So STOP blaming ME for the calendar issues. If everyone simply knew how to follow directions, there would have been only TWO threads. The original - and LAST CALL! Are you still confused?

Instructions seems clear to me Sal. I must admit it required some jumping thru hoops with the extra threads but the instructions were there.
Sorta reminded me when I use to compete in amatuer road rallies. If you didn't focus on the instructions at any point you missed out on the trophy.

I think I mentioned in an earlier post this wasn't going to be an easy assignment. I'm glad it's your assignment Sal and not mine. Remember Vice President Hubert Humprey's slogan, "Don't let the Bastards grind you down!"

This was definately managed poorly!
Thank you for sharing your opinion. If I were to have managed this any better, I'd have had to set my priorities differently.

Maybe..

1. Calendar
2. Family
3. Full-time job
4. Maintaining the site/server where the other admins cannot

When in reality it looked more like:

1. Family
2. Full-time job
3. Maintaining the site/server where the other admins cannot
4. Calendar

At any rate, I'm sure I'll have a better handle on this the next time I do it. For a first run, I think everything is going to turn out fine in the end. Especially since everybody is going to get a calendar with their vehicle on it...

Danielle is running the show on getting them printed and she'll know more about the price than I do. I just had to round up the pictures.. I've heard her mention $20.00 before.. But I think she started shopping around for a better price.. We'll know more soon..

At $1,000.00 you should be able to afford counseling for your mental

2. Boombotz - 31 votes
3. Stoneage_Caddy - 30 votes
4. Frost - 27 votes

18. LuvMy03Caddy - 13 votes
19. Integline - 9 votes
20. CTS_FAN - 7 votes

The 8 people who do not make this calendar will be in the next calendar - which will be available almost simultaneously with this one. These 8 people will be featured with those who had originally submit pictures - but did not answer the final call for posting their 3 best shots...

So don't feel bad if you're not in the top 12 of this particular voting. If you want a Cadillac calendar with YOUR car in it - fear not. You'll have one...

Thats why I ask if this could be posted in the most trafficed lounges. The vote for the cadillac calender messege could've been overlooked as advertisement.

There is magic way to make everyone happy..just no way. The second calender is a good idea but I imagine the first one will be the one in demand.

Will they both be the same price? Usually the cost is based on set-up and number of copies.

I'm not sure about this. If the first calender didn't have the vehicles I preferred, but the 2nd one did, then I would only hang the 2nd on my wall.

Of course the way I'm going to handle it is one for home and one at my desk at work, that way I have both to look at all year long vs seeing the same one while I work and when I get home.

I think the voting has already spoken for itself. Calender #1 got the most votes. I agree some will want both but many will not want to spend $40 for 2 calenders.
