Has always been a problem. PM JB and request a time for a change. The sponsor of this forum PFYC.com keeps the lights on for free and is involved building his business. Used to be on here an active back in the day. I appreciate that the site is kept alive.

I don't even go to the home page any more, my shortcut takes me straight to the forum main page.

"Redshift" is the owner and bill payer of the site. He pretty much leaves us alone unless we have issues that only the head honcho can take care of. It would be nice if he came by on occasion, but I also just appreciate the fact that it's here at all. The CF just has too many JackHoles for me to enjoy the time I spend there for more than 5 minutes at a shot in the general sections.

Totally agree with Chewy. Can't recall the last time I used CF.

I didn't say I don't go to CF, I'm actually a Tech Contributor over there. I just avoid the C6 General section if at all possible and stay mostly in the audio section.

I've submitted my car a time or two but when they do change that picture it's never anyone that is on this site.

Agree as usual with my fellow Bubbas and my vote is for Jrose's kick ass Corvette. Bubba Moons is very fine too. Can't be that hard to do?? I only go to CF for the classified. Too many jackasses and always a hassle.
I also urge our Bubbadom to shop at PFYC.com. Redshift is a great guy with some neat stuff in his store. The prices are right too! He keeps the lights on here and doesnt ask for a thing. It is time for a change and I nominate JB to carry the ball. He is a top notch editor and person with a passion for Corvettes. What gives JB will you except the mission. We will help in whatever way that we can...Bubba Foot

Guys! I sent off this thread to the powers at be...

I don't know which car they will chose ...but whatever car it is....I'm sure it will be exciting all the same..

For those of you that could....I'd love to see threads that any of you start with photos of your car as well as any history you can give us..any story you have about the car and what you enjoy most about your car..

Thanks...

The only one that can do it is Redshift. I haven't seen him around here or spoken to him in a very long time. But, maybe he'll check his PMs and pop in and update this.

Beautiful Corvette Jim!! You have been a very solid contributer to the forum since 2004, my vote is for your excellent example. Dirt trak announcer huh? Pretty cool but a very dirty job with all that clay dust in the air.
Bubba Moon's Z16 is a fine candidate as well. We got some excellent Corvettes to display among our loyal membership, so I think we got at least 2 super candidates to select from. Better than our national election coming up.

Corvette #1:

2001 coupe purchased in 2003 with 12k on the clock. Sold after getting corvette #2. I don't have very many pics of it.



Corvette #2:

Ordered 2007 new exactly as I wanted it, picked up at Corvette Museume R8C delivery on 9/26/06. Traded in for corvette #3.





Corvette #3:

2012 Centennial Edition GS Coupe, purchased off the lot in March 2012. I'm keeping my eyes open for a nice place to take some pics. There's an old fashioned gas station mock-up over by the coast that I forget how to get to.... One of these days I'll find it and take a road trip with my good camera.
