Your not going to win with an attitude like that

Self-nominations HAVE won before. I believe Sawgunner has. Maybe twice.

Danthurs has a nice tutorial about COTM.

https://www.gmforum.com/showthread.p...light=win+cotm

Remember, the main thing is about presentation. I have seen 1990 era cars beat out classics mainly due to:
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!
PHOTO QUALITY. Avoid low resolution pics. Especially cell phone pictures.
PARTICIPATION: Get pictures posted and comment on other member pictures. A few kind words goes further than saying nothing at all.

From Jan 1st to Jan 31st, you would of had to posted a picture of your car in the YOUR RIDE forum during that time frame in order to qualify for February'* COTM.

Because you posted in Feb, you won't be eligible until March COTM. See how it works?
I think he only copied the post from the last COTM. That'* what I use to do when I ran COTM. Sorry bud, next month.

If you have anymore questions or concerns, please feel free to PM me.

So, if I'm reading this thread correctly, is my ride not eligible until March for COTM?

Nope, yours is fine. The thread has to be started/pictures posted in the month before the COTM month, so for Feb COTM, the pictures have to be posted in January, March COTM in Feb, etc.
