Nominations TOTM December 2006

Ok time for a different approach this month. This one will take a bit of effort on our nominees’ part. The Truck of the Month (TOTM) theme for this month is

Most Photogenic!!

What will be different is not just the truck that we like, but which photo input is the most artistic. Those of you that have done this know it takes some thought and effort in creating the perfect shot.

The criteria for this month are:

• The photo must contain a picture with one of our vehicles in it, and the vehicle must be owned by the nominee.

• Any year GM vehicle, Trucks, Blazers, Suburbans, Tahoes, Yukons, and Jimmys, and in any state of operation., show, shine, street, garage queen, on-going project or a pile of parts.

• Again, if the nominated vehicle has already been selected TOTM in the last 12 months, you are ineligible. If you were nominated but were not selected as a TOTM winner then you may be nominated and compete in this month's category. In addition, if it is a different truck than that won prior, you may also compete.


To Nominate:

Nominations will be added to this thread. When nominated you must provide a picture, but no more than 2 pictures with the nomination. Please no Adult oriented or risqué photos. If you have problems getting the photos in, e-mail them to me

wpalfrey@cableone.net

Nominees will through December 23. I will start the Poll Thread and voting will run December 24 and will run till the morning of December 31. The official announcement of the winner will be on the afternoon of December 31.

Remember, it is not just the truck this month, but the truck in the photo experience. So guys, brake out the cameras, plan your shots, and get those nominations in.

Re: Nominations TOTM December 2006

Da burb- It was just beginning to snow, you can see a foggy haze on the hills in the back and a rolling meadow right behind. Looks like it's self nomination TOTM! My wife said that if I didn't win, that I couldn't have sex with her until next year...

Re: Nominations TOTM December 2006

Here are some of mine. The first two pics are in front my old elementary school. The 3rd and 4th are in front of an old general store down the road from my house. The last pic is in front of a railroad track underpass in Bulls Gap,TN. I was hoping to catch a train going by but didn't have enough time to wait.

Re: Nominations TOTM December 2006

Well I guess I'll nominate myself too since no one here knows me yet lol. Here are a few pics of my truck from back in 93, all I have are three pics from when it was together and I just had to use my digital cam to take pics of the old printed pics lol.

Just a funny story too, this was right after my dad bought me this when I was in H.S., my brother (who is 15 years older than me) was married at the time, and his wife's brother worked at the GM plant in Arlington Tx. He and my brother took the truck to a car wash and blasted off the paint in odd splotches, and blasted off longhorns across the hood, and entered the truck into an ugly truck contest, and won second place!! Yeah, this was gonna be my H.S. truck......








And today this is what it looks like (literally shot these pics on the 16th, yesterday for this site.....)

Gonna be tough as usual for voting, but I gotta say that this is one of the "sweetest" looking Blazers I have ever seen. White, crisp, and simple.
