    COTM could be revised a little to include a short story prior to voting.

    Make it a standard format so we can compare apples to apples. Something like this to list any mods or upgrades:

    Engine/Trans:

    Suspension:

    Exterior/Paint:

    Wheels/Tires:

    Interior/Sound System:

    Performance (Dyno/Track):

    Additional info:

    Lastly, it does seem to me that the background does play a lot into this COTM competition. I mean it is called CAR of the month. Not all of us live in the mountains and by lakes to where we can drive our cars a few miles and get a glamor shot with a kick ass background.
    i lul'd at the NY rep part, but also, in every state theres something somewhere to make a picture look nice. An old barn if you live in the sticks one of the bridges if you live in NY, etc.

    this is what hes trying to say, that people are voting based upon ONLY the picture and that COTM is supposed to be more than that, its supposed to give credit to peoples dedication to their car not only based on how the car looks

    Not everyone can pour money to into their car. So does that mean if someone has a clean looking STOCK car they shouldnt even bother posting it cause a semi good looking car moded up the ass will beat it?

    The only info IF ANY should be

    Year/Make/Model

    Llike this young guy here. VERY clean Camaro, with a nice background it would be a good car for COTM. HE SHOULD NOT be scared away from posting in the COTM cause its stock.

    To the other side of the argument my car is not that good looking in the aspects of paint b/c of condition when I bought it. I have carefully modded the car for performance but have not done much as far as looks. Should a "stock" car win over mine?

    I agree with you on that note. He should not be afraid of going for COTM. The issue always will be the best "picture" will win

    Any car with a few imperfections will look good in a picture. Mine photos well and I have some imperfections in the paint. Its all about the angles. Just know what side of the car to take pictures of. Edwins car has a lot of chips yet when in a pic you can not see any of them.

    Having a stock car doesn't hurt a posters chances, poor picture quality does. Not the cars fault in most cases

    I agree. If you want to win a COTM dont use a cell pic. Even a nice $75 camera can take a nice shot. Im not saying go buy a DSLR. But use a camera at least.

    I agree! I think all cell phone pics should not be allowed.

    I think there is a lot to be said for a super clean car that is all or mostly stock. This is especially true as to the 4th gen F-bodies that are now all at least 8 years old. This being said, I still think it's nice to know some details about the cars that are being entered. If you want to level the playing field, make 2-3 months out of the year a stock appearing (or stock whatever) month for those entrants that meet the qualifications.

    I like the idea of two contests.

    Trying to find new ways to shoot my car gives me something to do...always like to best my last photoshoot when I go out.

    I've driven around for hours literally in my area and the best place I've found is an empty parking lot. Sad reality, but true. Yes I've seen barns which you would have to drive through 3' tall weeds and down private/abandanned roads. No thanks. The only other thing I've come across is a parking garage which has been done countless times and is not very "original". Maybe I could photoshop my own background. Does that still qualify?

    No life stories, just a lil bit of info on the car. Something unique about the car. That doesn't have to turn into a novel. Stock cars should not be excluded either or afraid of entering. COTM is not going to turn into a pissing contest of who has the most mods.

    I think the stockers are becoming rare, and whoever has one should be proud! Post it up!
