I appreciate your interest in my car and for coming to this forum for Bonnexilles in general. I will make up a "featured" submission but I'm afraid I dont think I can do it in a day. So will somebody give me an example of third person narrative? Hungover and not thinking good yet. go I say "the" car instead of "my" car. Talk like I'm the reporter not the owner???

Pretty much. And when you refer to yourself, for instance if you were being interviewed by a reporter, you would translate it just like the reporter would...aka:

Reporter: "So how much time has been invested in turning this already gorgeous Bonneville GXP into the outstanding show/go one-of-a-kind?"

You: "Well, between the planning, prep work, and painting, "Such-and-such-Customz-shop" and I have roughly XX hours, and even more sweat, but in the end it has turned out to be beyond their expectations."

What the reader will see/want to see:
When asked how much time was invested in just the truly custom paint (insert first name or nick name) explained, "between the planning, prep work, and painting, "Such-and-such-Customz-shop" and (insert your name or nn) have roughly XX hours, and even more sweat, but in the end it has turned out to be beyond our expectations.


You will want to give the readers your name right at the introduction of the write up, but keep it in the 3rd person. You will also want to use a little more style and be more professional than how I just did it.

I'd also suggest you pick up a couple magazine'*, such as High Performance Pontiac, Hot Rod, and read through a few feature'* and see how they are worded up. Don't exactly follow any righting style, but take note'*, and put your own together.
To help the magazine editors you might also suggest certain locations during the writeup for a certain picture which you've sent them.
And last, but not least be sure to mention all your brothers and sisters over here at BC.

BLACK94SSEi - This is an online magazine only. You would need to subscribe to get the PDF'*. All is explained on our home page. The magazine used to be in print but changed in 2006 for many reasons. We plan to go back eventually if we get enough subscribers but that may be a long time.

GXP Venom - You can view a free issue of the e-zine on the home page in the right bar. This will help you understand what some of the articles are like. Don't copy completely their format though we want it to be original.


We will continue to support the Bonneville community as long as we have subscribers that are interested and as long as we keep getting submissions!

I didnt make a submission Domestic Driver (A name Please) because I was preoccupied when your post first came out and didnt have time to devote to writing an article and gather pics together to make a quality submission. And quality is what the Venom is all about. I will begin a submission soon. What is the deadline for the next issue please?
