I say leave that one as is and make other versions. That way we can see them side by side. I would like to see several different headers made up by different members.

Yes, leave the one in place be. Although there is going to be a Official Header, we will mix them up from time to time if there is enough to do so, You aren't limited to one design.

I asked for it, but the white background of it just doesn't work. Maybe it would look better with a transparent background or just not be in the header. Also I prefer the GMFORUM be in it'* logo font, not in the Bonneville font. Good work. Dont try to make it a header to fit all tastes. The owner and I will be judging.
what logo font should i use?So i should keep the same background? So use a GXP, GP, Monte and a Regal?

I would like to see a header with those cars. Even though this site is now GM, we are still and most likely always will be performance driven. If we have more the 4 cars I think it will get to busy and start looking like a picture of a parking lot.

hehehe. Just bustin on ya. The owners and I will make the final cut, but I see using all good designs from time to time. And opinions from all through the process is a good thing.

The Font used in the logo is a common one, look for it on a font site. I agree with Dan, any more than 4 is going to flood the 100x600 space and that dimension is set in stone. Yes, the 4 cars I mentioned would work best. They are the most common here and most likely stay that way. Lets remember guys that there is going to be more ideas and designs coming, lets not tear into each like its the only one.

A really good effort Raptor'* "Honey". I really like the layout.
