I want to do a calendar for the site.

The idea has been tossed around for a couple years now, and nothing has ever come of it.

I want one. I'm gonna make it happen.

Send me all your best Hi-res pictures of YOUR car. No one else's.

If I have enough usable submissions We can have this by Dec-Jan.

I am dead serious about this. So if you fellas are interested.... Send 'em in!!!

Hey, did I send you some pics a while ago?? Or was that someone else that wanted to start this project?

Shadowlife25
10-15-2008, 02:50 AM
You never sent me any. That was someone else.

Like I said, I want to see this done.

Send me any hi-res photos you have. :)

P.S.
Please make sure that you all include your real name AND your screen name, as I can't always match the e-mail to the person who sent the pic. ;)

Ay Mario. I sent ya a couple pics to that addy.

Shadowlife25
10-15-2008, 06:53 AM
MCcelica: I got them, Thank You. :) They are filed under your name.

Now I need everyone else to get in on this.:D

Had a thought: Maybe a mod list and such would be cool to add in.... Hmm.

MCcelica
10-15-2008, 08:01 AM
Mario. Good to go mang!

My mods lists.

94 GT: Not nearly enough

2000 GT-S: Also not nearly enough.

I will take a few nice ones this weekend and submit. Do you want via PM or here in this thread? I think Captain should submit as he's on of my favorite GT4's on here!

Shadowlife25
10-15-2008, 07:03 PM
Submit the actual pictures to my e-mail listed in the first post. :)

The Captain actually did send me a couple. He needs to send some of his A game material though. ;) j/k Captain. :hugs:

Hey mario. Did you get the pics?

Ryan

Shadowlife25
10-15-2008, 10:52 PM
Yes I did Ryan. :)
Yours are now tagged with your name and screen name.

Ben: I now have Photoshop again, so just send 'em my way. If I can't take care of it, I'll let Chris know.

Shadowlife25
10-15-2008, 10:53 PM
By the way: I want ALL Generations of Celica. So all you 3rd 4th and 6th and 7th gen guys post up too!!!

Jerk. :p

I have put that on indefinite hold. I had to give back the scanner I was using, and I won't have fundage for a while to come, so:shrug:

If you really want G'man, I'll send 'em to you to read through, then you can send 'em back.

MCcelica
10-16-2008, 04:25 AM
And yes MCcelica, I have yours but we need to keep you company! :hehe:

Is it "Pleasurable company"??? If so, I'll take all I can get! :laugh:

You guys are seriously tempting me to pose on the coupe in nothing but a thong... :hehe:

Talked to Ben earlier Mario, I told him I could do it. Either way is fine though, just let me know if you need anything.

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 04:42 AM
Chris if you want to handle that, it would for sure make it easier on me, so go ahead. :)
Lord knows I'll be collaborating on this with you anyhow. Just a ton easier now that I have Photoshop now as well. :D

Geebes: I received your pics just now, Thank You. They are very nice and gave me some super sweet ideas! I love the one in the rain, very classy.

geebes
10-16-2008, 05:39 AM

Don't say it unless you plan on doing it! :ug3:

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 06:25 AM
MCcelica, do you have multiple pics of both cars? I just ask because I had an idea, and it requires multiple images. :D

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 06:25 AM
Don't say it unless you plan on doing it! :ug3:

Please God no!:hehe:

MCcelica
10-16-2008, 06:45 AM
Yes. Yes I do. I have more pictures of my car than anything else. How many do you need of each?

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 07:36 AM
Yes. Yes I do. I have more pictures of my car than anything else. How many do you need of each?

As many as you want to send. That goes for everyone! Lots of pics give me more options. :)

MCcelica
10-16-2008, 09:04 AM
Aite. I'ma send some more your way, including some pics of them next to each other. I wont waste your time by sending any crap shots. I got a lot of those. Lol! Some of 'em woulda been sweet if they weren't fuzzy, but I'll send ya my decent to good ones.

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 09:23 AM
Quick example of an idea... (I know it's bad... Shut it!!!)

MCcelica
10-16-2008, 09:29 AM
Moto! Aite well I hit ya with a couple messages with some decent material. In the meantime it's time to hit the rack. Hope to see something sick soon(ish)!!

And by all means, post your products on here!

I'm trying to figure out when i can make it to the graffiti walls again... i'll see what i can try to put together this weekend for you, though. I'm going to send you a couple of my existing ones today, and you can judge if they're even shoppable to be presentable. Lighting kindof blows in them, but they're pretty good sized. :)

Ryan
10-16-2008, 04:58 PM
Yay!! my car was an example...lol.

10-16-2008, 09:47 PM
Somebody on the East Coast needs to find a section of road where the trees line both sides and come over it, like a tunnel of trees. Take mucho pictures on said stretch of road with the leaves changing it will look like fire. I had a road like that on the way too my house in NY. :(

Shadowlife25
10-16-2008, 09:48 PM
Also the second picture, is Geebes' cars. :D Both of em.

10-17-2008, 02:55 AM
I'll take Ryan out to a road around here that has the trees over the road and take some pics. Its a really awesome location.

I got your first set Ben. If you have any others to send me, it would definitely help though. :)

Hopefully this weekend. Waiting on my painter to call me back about getting the bumper and my sideskirts painted and installed. Then it's off to the graffiti walls.

What resolution are you looking for, by the way? I've got some in my gallery that are probably better than the parking garage batch that i sent. The wheels might need some cleaning up in PS, though.

Shadowlife25
10-17-2008, 09:53 PM
Send me everything you got Ben. :) Errryting, show me errryting!

WickedToys and 19celica90, I'll be waiting for those pics to show up. Thank You.

10-19-2008, 03:27 AM
To All of you viewing this thread: :)

Do me a favor. Be as artsy and creative as you want to.
I'll be using Photoshop to do some things, but the more you guys do for things like backgrounds and angles, the better!

Don't be afraid to send me a ton of images. The more I have to work with, the more possibilities I have. So, more IS better!!!

I also want to remind everyone, that I want to cover as many generations of Celica as possible. This means that those of you that are lucky enough to own multiple gens, or even any gen other than gen 5, absolutely need to send me photos.

Please don't worry about your car being "pretty" enough. It's your baby, and everyone here respects that.

If you have a series of pics that detail an engine build along with an exterior shot of the car, that would be FANTASTIC! :D

See what I'm getting at? We're a community. We have all worked hard on our cars, whether it be Interior, Exterior, or in the Engine Bay.

So I challenge you all:

SHOW ME WHAT YOU GOT!!! :)

- Mario

Sigh... As you wish. The largest I've got is 6.3Mp, but I'll go through and see what I've got...

MCcelica
10-19-2008, 07:19 AM
^Some of the shots I sent 'em were 4.0Mp. I only had like 3 or 4 7.1Mp's. So 6.3 ought to be ok.

Shadowlife25
10-19-2008, 07:25 AM
So far we have photos from:

Ciento

Extremeskills
Geebes
GT4RCdude
MCcelica
92gt

To those of you who have contributed thus far: A big Thank You! ALL of you should be proud of your cars. The pictures I've been getting are amazing. :D

To everyone else that keeps lurking and not posting and sending pics: DO IT!!!!

I do seriously need at least:
1 - 7th gen (Matbe Luni will throw some 7th gen love our way) :D
1 - 6th gen
1 - 4th gen
1 - 3rd gen - JOE This means YOU!!!
I'd love a 1st gen as well, but those seem a bit rare round these parts. :(

I was gonna send you a bunch of the original photos, but it looks there's no way I'll be able to compress any quantity small enough for email. Guess I'll have to bust out photoshop and just make you a few. :) I'll get 'em to ya within a couple of days.

Oh, and MC, I know it's technically fine, I just tend to be a bit of an elitist when it comes to such things. "What? You're printing that at less than 300dpi? Fool!" :hehe: Say it were a 12 x 14 calander, I wouldn't use an image less than 3600 x 4200 pixles. I'd be more comfortable at double that. Just one of the little biases I developed at art school. :) I know you can get an image at the standard screen resolution of 72dpi to look good if you do it right, but it still bothers me.

That actually reminds me, what size were you thinking of making them, Mario?

Shadowlife25
10-19-2008, 08:55 AM
12x14 . :hehe:

Well, I'm sure it will work out either way. Chris, just resize them a bit to be able to send 'em :)

Shadowlife25
10-19-2008, 11:37 AM
Another idea. ;)

Shadowlife25

MCcelica
10-20-2008, 04:58 AM
Ay Mario. I went on a Cruise today with members from a local board. Couple of 'em had some wicked SLRs. I told 'em to email me the pics. There should be a couple of me takin on the twisties, but we got a couple of my 7th gen alongside some deuces with the Stanley Hotel (Where the first "The Shining" was filmed) in the background. Soon as they get 'em to me I'll forward those to ya.

I got the 5 pics you sent. :) Very nice. I have 2 questions though:

1. Which picture of the engine should I include? Red Valve cover or Black valve cover?

2. Can i trouble you to send more? As many as you have would be fantastic. :D:D:D

Thanks shadowlife - I wish I took better pics!

The black valve cover belongs to the '77 Celica. The red cover one belongs to the '76 Celica.

No problem, I will send you more. :)

Shadowlife25
10-22-2008, 04:41 AM
I guess I should specify: Which Valve Cover is the one that is on the car now, or is the one that is in your description? :)

10-22-2008, 11:02 PM
I'll send some in of my ST162 when it is worthy of being shown. I don't want to show her while she is in a non-flattering state.

I didn't bother to read the preceding 3 pages, but i'm wondering if the calender will include specs for the cars in each photo. I'm thinking of track times, mods, autox wins ala measurements such as 36-24-36.....;)

Wicked Toys

Yep, the one with the black cover is the one described in my description - but really - you can use the same exact description text for the red valve cover engine - they are twin cars.

I have the hi-res pics of all the photos posted in my "she's done" thread if you want any of those. I also took the liberty of snapping another few shots today and then playing around with Photoshop. If you want any of them let me know and I'll email them to you whatever format, size, etc.... or you can just check out my photobucket for all of my recent and not so recent shots. (if anyone else has a resolution request let me know also.)
