Default New GM Forum Header?

The first thing I noticed when logging onto the gmforum.com site is the header with the Escalade and what looks to be a Hummer. Could we maybe add to this to include at least 1 car from each GM brand? Just a suggestion, I think it would be cool to have a bunch of GM cars spread across the top of the page or something. I have pretty decent Photoshop skills if they would be needed. What does everyone else think?

I agree. I think I mentioned this in the thread "How are you liking the new forum". However I don't think its anywhere near the top of John'* list at the moment

I'm down for a new banner. Hell, it could stand to be a little taller too. Just has to say "Home to the Pontiac Bonneville Club" in it somewhere.

I'm up for it. But John is rather busy and I hate to add to his work load. Let'* let him chime in before making any other plans. If he'* for it, then it'* a mater of building up a collection of cars.

He mentioned to me that he planned on having a contest for a new design once he had caught up on the things that need more immediate attention.

Yeah, as far as building up a collection of cars, I would suggest getting all the pictures from the same place (like using the stock pics from GM for cars). This way they would all look similar, have similar lighting, etc. But we will see what John thinks. If not now, maybe a thought for the future.

Its going to happen. It will be a contest. Rick'* busy with moving and some other business. As soon as I get a Max Header size, we can determine how many GM cars to include. So don't warm up your PS software just yet. Things are leveling off and I hope to get this done soon and the new thread notifications icons Trent made for us up as well. Still thinking about some minor Section tweaking and renaming as well. No suggestions in that area Please. The Search Engines which drive our traffic are just catching up and any further changes will be small and very selective.
