View Full Version : A calendar of our own (Phoenix area)

05-02-2005, 01:54 PM
I thought I'd put together a picture calendar using picís I've taken over the last two years... then I thought it would be WAY better if the picís were from others who had taken photo's during our local gatherings.

I'm not quite sure how to collect the hi-res picture files... I know e-mailing them won't work. Maybe you could put them on a CD and mail them to me, or we could meet up and you could just hand them to me?

No offence to anyone, but I'd rather the picture quality and artistic content be prioritized over the amount of options added to the car itself. I would really like to accentuate the factory stock character of the car. Thatís not to rule out a good pic of a car with added options.

Try to keep in mind the purpose of the project... cars and places we know, and gatherings we can relate too and remember?

Got any good pics?

Dose that mean my car cant be on the cover. :LAUGH:

Cover??? It's a calendar not a magazine? If we had a centerfold you and Tuck would have to have a shootout to see who gets the staple in the door handle! I want good pics first... bling bling is not a factor. The mach could be heavily modified, or not at all, it's the composition and quallity that counts.

Hey calenders have covers cars too. Rich do you want to take the pics or just have everyone take their own. My brother owns a photography studio(Imperial School Photography) and he'd prolly take the pics if we could all get some cars to gether at meeting or something. Got a good purge pic of the n2o comming out of the shaker but i dont think its calender material.

Oh and I also have a who works at a print shope and he said he might be able to put a couple of calenders together on the side. Just some food for thought.

Pics of past events/gatherings or photo's taken just for the calendar... really doesn't matter to me. If someone can get them printed that's cool too. I figured if we were only going to need a dozen or so there wouldn't be justification to have an actual print shop do the work. We could just print them up on the computer with some good paper.

Kind of thought having backgrounds we were familiar with would be nice, but not absolutely necessary (Pavilions, Firebird, Speedworld, local landmarks, etc.).

I don't want this to become a work. Keeping it simple will keep it fun. Hopefully we'll end up with something that we can have at work or in the kitchen to make us smile.

It won't take much effort on our part to produce a very cool Calendar. There are shops out there that have the basic Calendar, we would just need to come up with the artwork/photo's. I don't recall the exact amount, but the Denver Mustang Club did a very nice Calendar with photo's of Club Cars at a very reasonable price :yes: . I know some CMC people with 69/70 & 71/73 Mach's,(No one will own up to having a Mustang II Mach :notsure: ) we could do a heritage shot :hail1:.

That would be cool. And I'd support that, but for me personally I'd rather have a good shot of your car, or Tim's car, or Darrel's car. There are lots of pictures of really cool Mustangs, I'd like to be able to look up from my desk and see a car I know.

Just me though.


P.S. Anyone up to 83rd Ave. on Saturday evening?

83rd Ave and Deer Valley, the Safeway parking lot ???? Sounds good to me. What time? Will E-Mail Rochard with info, He lives out this way too. Does anybody know about a Screaming Yellow Mach I saw on 67th Ave just south of Greenway last Tues???

Didn't see anyone at 83rd Ave. on Saturday? That's ok. There were lots of cool cars to check out. How about a supercharged V-10 Viper or a DOHC Panoz!
