    Sounds fine. Who would be the judge and how would the cars be judged? Gen 1 and 2 cars shouldn't be judged with Gen 3 and 4 cars. They are quite different and whose to say which looks better. I have seen Gen 1 and 2 cars I just love and the same for 3 and 4, but I wouldn't compare them. They are different. Maybe a Gen 1/2 and Gen 3/4 categories. Anyway, nice idea and appreciate it as a sponsor.

    Paint is paint doesn't matter if it's a Gen 1 or Gen 4.

    I think it's a great idea I will have to get some photos together.

    I want to enter the best "beading" catogery! ;) Hard to get good pics of silver.

    Actually it is better for a wax to sheet water then to bead. Just think if these spots dried on a black car? Good or Bad? ;) Would rather have water sheet off so it has less spots. By the way these pictures was after a winter rain out here in the desert.

    My best reflection shot of a black Aston Martin I buffed out.

    With car photographs it's the quality of the camera and photographer far more than the quality of the detail. Best camera and camera skillz wins.

    In a detailing/photography contest LOL. OK I can make a Gen 1 look just as good as a new car with machine. Paint is paint.

    You know it's funny when I saw this thread I was licking my chops LOL but I actually think your right. Not that I would presume to win, but it is not really fair for me to setup 10 G's worth of camera gear to get a shot.:rolaugh::rolaugh::rolaugh: I am still going to do my best to get a cool shot but I won't enter the contest.

    Looking forward to seeing what everyone else posts up!:2tu::2tu::2tu:

    Tito, the contest sounds like fun. As a site sponsor and If you are running this contest I would suggest having a disclaimer that these photos are not going to end up on a calendar or some other Viper merchandise of sorts. They will be used for the sole purpose of this contest. Some of the members are very good photographers, amateur or professional and would not appreciate the use of their work without permission. Just my 2 cents.

    Yah, Tito said it'll take 20 submissions to "put something together". He also said to post your pics on this thread.

    Imagine how hard it would be to win a photo contest for the Viper if Fiat kills it. Post your support by signing the "Please sign this petition!!!!" thread.
