Well, it'* done. Don gave me permission to post a thread about it and siad he would make it a sticky.
John Collier had offered to put it in the Photo Gallery.
It doesn't matter to me where it goes, I would just like it to be accessible to all.
Big thanks to Mrs. Tallbump, Haro, Travis and everyone else that helped.
Popatim had offered to host it , so that'* where the link will take you.
John, if you want to put it in the catalog, you are more than welcome as far as I am concerned.
This may not be the best you'll ever see, but I think it is pretty good. I am sure some people won't be happy with everything about it, but you can't please everyone. I tried to include as many of our rides as possible, (mine didn't make it cause I couldn't find a pic I was happy with) but some I just couldn't find good pics of. Sorry in advanced if anyone is upset, feels left out, disappointed, etc...
Anyway, it'* already to go, all you have to do is install it.
Here'* the link

Please provide honest, fair feed back. I can handle constructive critism well, just don't be mean.
That means you Boosty

Thanks. Like I said, I can not and will not take all of the credit though.
Oh yeah, I also have to comment on some of the tremendous photo taking skills of our members. You guys and gals are the ones that make / made this look good.

Yeah, I figured everyone in it would like it.
Looking back, I probably would have done some things differently. I wish I would have kept track of whose car was who'*, and I could hace PS'ed their siggy in the pic.
Overall, I am satisfied for a 1st time.

The Siggy idea like in the RH bottom corner would be cool and really make it even more Club orientated.. That would take some time editing, but would really add some Club flavor to it. I like it alot, regardless.

Yeah, I may look into diong that. I still have all of the pics saved. And to make it easy, I just gave each pic a number. Would just need to know what siggy goes with what pic.
Not sure if the wife would be happy with me putting more time into it though

I like it bunches!!!

It'* now my screensaver!

I showed it to a co-worker, who commented that it was like taking a tour of North America. I agree. It felt as if I was briefly visiting all those beautiful places. The cars just set off the scenery and the shots were as good as commercial ads, IMO.

I really like the uncluttered look of it as it is right now, but know that some would want the sig info version, if for nothing else, as a reference. I know that I had fun trying to identify who'* was who'* as they scrolled by. I was even surprised at how many I recognized immediately.

Great work!!!

And kudos to all who took such nice pics to start with!
