    2018 Calendars - call for pictures

    Hi all!

    It seems I've been away forever. Been a tough year.

    But I have obtained the ok from the forum and from Factory Five to do the calendars again this year.

    Last year things got a bit behind, and as a result, some people didn't get their calendars til after Christmas. I felt bad about that and I am determined to not allow that to happen again.

    What this means is that I need the pics a bit sooner. No more mid-November submissions! Sooner is better. In fact, sooner is required!

    Want your car in the calendar? Send me this...


    Hi resolution photos at least MINIMUM 3000 pixels wide
    Pic of your car from a couple of angles
    Pic of your engine bay
    If you want, a pic of your interior

    Information
    Your Chassis number (eg. GTM # 275, or Cobra Mk III # 3650, etc)
    Your name
    Your car's name (if applicable)
    Engine/drivetrain info (size, HP, torque)
    any special details
    Also, the quotes seem popular with each month, so please include (if you can) a favourite automotive-related quote. (If you don't have a quote, I have a few, but it means more if it comes from you)

    Send this to:
    [email protected]

    YES!!!!!!! I've been waiting for this.

    Can you tell me if the pix from this site are good for you to grab or I need to send them another way?

    We'll work out the other details (frame num, name, etc.) later.

    Frank..
    Yup, got em! Good pics, I really like what you did with the back end.

    There are now two 818 submissions...only 10 to go!
    Even if you were in last year's calendar, there's nothing saying you can't be in this year's again!

    Well, maybe if someone could talk to Dragonfly and Retro...
    Actually, any of your buddies you see at race weekends or SEMA

    The Roadster calendar is almost full, but I still need 818s, GTMs, 33s, and a few Coupes.

    Only two 818 submissions!

    Anyone?
    A Christmas themed submission gets you December, Flags get you July!

    C'mon guys, the 818 had a great response last year, lets do it again!

    How about one with a mix of cars? I will still get one of each but it would be cool to have on with a variety.

    Dragon and Retro are in and will take pix at the track very soon.
    That should bring us to four 818s + I believe you will receive an email from a friend of mine as well, we could be 5.

    7 to go.

    I'm away on some family stuff.
    I'll be back hopefully by the weekend to start the ordering thread.

    Getting close but still room for a couple more submissions. No prob with repeat submissions as long as I have different pics to work with. Some of the GTM guys were in 3 years in a row

    Still need a ton more 818s for the calendar.

    5-6 would be great.

    Ordering thread coming next week.

    Also...I'm putting special dates in again...holidays like thanksgiving and christmas etc,

    But also, if you look at the 2017 calendar, I also included the Indy and Daytona 500, 25 hr of Thunderhill, Detroit Autorama, and a few major car shows.

    If you have any dates for big events, drop me an email at [email protected] and let me know so I can include them on the 2018 calendars

    Can you call Factory Five to get dates for MoochFest, Open House, Huntington Beach, etc., plus dates of FFR shows such as Barrett-Jackson, SEMA '18, etc.?
    818S/C : Chassis #25 with 06 WRX 2.5 turbo, ABS, cruise, PS, A/C, Apple CarPlay, rear camera, power windows & locks, leather & other complexities.

    Great idea for the key shows. And Pete, your car absolutely needs to make the calendar.
