OOps, In my excitement to participate, I missed that "do not use an old photo" requirement. Sorry! I guess my entry is disqualified and subsequently, my challenge......... Back to the "packed for a trip" challenge.

P.S. Never mind this person. There is nothing to see here. Move along.....


Okay, don't give me any flak because it's sitting on a trailer; it's 'packed' for a trip.

Next challenge; most unusual color or color combo.

How about "Locost -vs- Goliath" as in a Locost Se7en type car next to a really large truck? Like a mine hauler rock truck, or a "Monster Truck" or similar...

I've got one of them too JD. It isn't really "next to" the beast. But it too, is an older photo so I guess it doesn't count either. Anyway, just for s#it$ and grins....This one is from the 2012 Midwest Gathering. It sort of appears like it was PhotoShop'd but I assure you that it isn't.

Haha great photo, don't forget to add a new challenge. I changed the original post so we can use any photo rather than take a new one, I think we will get better photos that way.

I know this challenge was already met, but couldn't resist. The pic is borrowed, but recent. Some on this forum may even be involved. :ack:

rx7locost . . . challenge, please.

I bow to your most excellent photo xcarguy. I think yours trumps mine. (Pun intended) Your choice on the next challenge.

Thanks for the 'BIG' compliment, but you must challenge the masses. :zoom:

I think both of the "Goliath" pics were just great!

Chuck, were you sober when you parked there? :shock:

:cheers:

I can honestly say "I didn't have a single drink, officer".

For the photo challenge: I know at least a couple of you have a pilot's license. How about a Seven next to a vintage aircraft.
