What a fantastic idea! Who's going to start the ball rolling?

How about, your car next to a wind turbine?! :P

Next up: Your car + a bridge of some sort, bonus thumbs up for being on the bridge!

It was fun to go to get the pic. :D Something to do on a diddling wet afternoon!

mum: Where are you going?
me: Goodwood.
mum: Why?
me: Take a picture!
mum: Why, what's going on out there?
me: Nothing unusual.
mum: :?
me: :D

Fair point:

Take a picture of your car (preferably a Chevette) next to some cool graffiti.

Feel free to make the graffiti first.


Note: Chevettes.com does not condone the painting of graffiti.

I know a good spot in the town, but I'd probably get knifed to death and the work van stolen.

Wow is that real? If so I say Chris gets upgraded to joint victor for the graffiti comp. for extra special effort. Nice day today in Canada wasn't it?

Yep, it's real, just used a ghetto inset. :) The wall has another 100' of stuff, and there's more on other sides of the building too. Place is due for demolition in the next year.

thats a more substantial looking garage then mine..which at the moment is probably getting blown over by the storm that is blowing through oxford right now!

I fear that if I try to get a photo of the moon tonight it might fall on me.

the garage that is.

not the moon.

... it's a picture of your car, but your car isn't next to a Chevette that isn't yours, it's next to my Saab. Conversely my car is next to a chevette that isn't mine hence I get a point. But no-one made me the judge of this so I say we have a vote.
