Although the Calender idea sounds good, it will only host 12 cars and only last for a year on the wall.
Why not do our own Club Albumn ourselves in a Car of the Month format with Picture and Mods listed. No wasted paper with days of the month. Could always overlay a regular calender for show separately.
That way we can all get our cars in there and would get a lot more members interested.
I know I would buy a couple....if my car were in there. :P

Just an idea.

I like your idea too SB, but i think Car of the Month ties in well with the calender idea since they do go by months, and there are always new ones being added so you can never have a complete COTM album, but you can always order next year'* calender.

I think $20 shipped is the upper end of what i'd want to spend.

I agree that it should be tied to the 05 COTM winners. At least the main photo'*. Other choice cars that haven't made COTM could be below the days of the month on the lower bar. Maybe one in each corner.

Tamara was looking into this at one point, and we all submitted pics (about 2 years ago).

It would help to have a couple members work on this that live near each other.

This was something I've been toying with every since COTM started.....

Why do you guys think I always ask for the highest res pix you have.... and I keep all the unused photos hidden on my website.

I've also got a contact that does exactly this sort of thing...... I'm willing to take lead on it... when I get back from my honeymoon on the 23rd.

I think it would be an easy project to have ready to ship for October...... I think our best bet would be to get it ready for Xmas.....
I also think a digital version would be a good idea too.....

Starting with January 2005 I was going to start making a "Windows Desktop Calander" with all the COTM winners.

This is a great Idea. I know that Regalgs.org has done one (my car was April ) and they turned out well. The issues I saw there were with the picture quality. Some of the pictures were not detailed enough to be blown up to the size they were, but if we had limits on pictures, then it would work great.
