I like pictures that mean something to me or that show a car doing something or the car looking as if it's been used. So nice shiny pictures of cars standing still don't do it for me, you could get thousands of those off the internet.

This photo was taken during last year's 'Rally of the Tests' and it shows one of the two 240Zs taking part. The pub is a local pub in Eccleshall (near Stone Staffs) and one that my Dad and I have used. Also it is a 'Joules' pub and the original Joules Brewery is where my dad worked for many many years and we used to live 'on the brewery' in a brewery owned house. The Joules name is alive again and operating from a much smaller pub in Market Drayton.

So I love the car, it's on a rally, I like the pub and the brewery has many memories for me. I don't like static shots of clinically clean cars, just like I don't like to see such cars in museums, I like to see cars showing age and use.

The 'Monte' pictures mean so much because that is my old car and I can relate to the work I did on the car e.g. lying underneath it gas welding whilst my lad hit the floor down with a hammer.

The only photo which would appeal to all people Rob is the middle one that epitomises the MC Rally although I understand how the pub one would work for you personally.

You do know that the owners have had to drive said nice shiny cars to nice locations to take said photos (note to self must get more obvious dirt indicating use on the car)

Couldn't agree more that I love action shots however for many these are quite difficult to come by with not many having personal photographers to accommodate this feat, or being in a position to enter competitions/events in race/rally spec vehicles (or willing to risk their road cars). Usually a lot of people go for a drive by themselves and take the photos at the destination etc making it a trickier task to get rolling shots.

Massive thumbs up to those that do have the cars and ability to enter events and share them though, I'm very envious of anyone in a position to do so.

Sounds like we should get another thread going now so that people can start sharing and collating their photographs in preparation for ext years. Makes it easier for people to update the thread as they go along, would be good to get a nice mix of all of the generations as well (Would I be threading on anyones toes if I did so?)
