The "Our Cars" thread. Pics of your cars please!!

Post by zeb » Sat Jun 08, 2013 11:13 am

I dont know if there is a specific thread for us owners to post pictures up of our cars, if there is maybe a sticky would be a good idea?
I popped out for a run in mine on Thursday, the sun was out, the sky was blue and the car was performing lovely!!
I took my camera out with me, as you do, stopped off and took a few pics.

This was the first Scimitar i owned, back in 2006/2007.
A MOD model she was brilliant!
The paint work was shonky, the leather front seats had to be restitched and I gave the interior a small recolouring/refurb.
Ive never owned a car before or since with such a comprehensive history, it even had the bill for the zeibarting that the first owner had done.
Its probably my favourite 6A colour, I dont think ive seen another one the same colour.
This car ended up in the Czech Republic.I sold it to a Czech Land Rover specialists friend when they came over to buy Land Rover parts to take back with them ( they also bought a Landy to take back too )and ive absolutely no doubt that she got them home without any fuss.
Its resurfaced on here a couple of times, last time was when it was up for sale over there for lots of money.
I knew absolutely nothing about Scimitars when I got her, infact I wasnt even looking for one.
Four Scimitars later I still remember my first one fondly and the indoor swimming pool in the passenger footwell. :wink:

Perhaps this should be a new section (rather than a thread in non-tech) with some guidelines regarding attachments and PB etc linking? Maybe posters could post by registration, so that it's searchable in the longer term?

Sounds like a plan. Maybe a mod could do the neccessary?
Most O.C forums seem to have a place where you can post up pictures of your cars, past and present.
It would be nice to have something like that here, some stonkingly good pics put up already.
Some look like perfect candidates for a club calender.

Firstly, the creation of totally new sections is not within the power of us humble mods I'm afraid. We can only work within the framework of *existing* sections. So you'll need an Admin. for that. :)

If the idea is for this thread to contain all makes and models, then there's already a sticky thread in Gen Tech called "GTC Pictures" which should presumably be subsumed into it?

Not intended to sound negative, but a point worth considering, I suspect most of the active contributors to the forum already have project threads, and many of the pics seen so far (while very nice pictures :) ) seem to be repeats from those (or other threads)?

The reason i started the thread was because there is no "photo dump" for people to add pictures to or for people ( and lets not forget the passing/casual observer/ non Scimitar owner) to find easily which will cover ALL makes that the O.C represents.
The GTC thread could be renamed and all models could be posted into it, I suppose, which would certainly work.
Project threads are fine if you have more than a passing interest in projects. Lets be honest, im not going to read too much about projects concerning SS1s because my main interest is 5As because ive got one. The same thing applied when i had a 6A, I never ventured into the world of 5As.
However, its fair to say that seeing the pics of Oakesys SS1 made me go "wow". Its a car i would never have seen ordinarily.
My original idea was to have a thread where people could just randomly post up pics of their car, after a run out for example, and have text with it or not.
Personally, ive not seen that red Scim towing that Rebel before and I would have missed a good pic if it wasnt posted here.
Sometimes its just nice to flick though umpteen pages of photos of cars without having to look at sumps or steering wheels.
Some of the cars already posted up look magnificent and, im sure, anybody looking into the forum and scrolling down on those pictures would seriously want to own one of them.
The forum, I believe, isnt just a place where owners and non owners can get together to discuss the cars, its also a shop window and the more attractive the shop window the more likely that people will come in which is good for the clubs and certainly good for the models it caters for.
I know you wasnt being negative Roger,it was just an idea that could work if people contributed to it, there are LOADS of cars that ive yet to see..and id like to! :D

I did suggest a photography section a while ago in a picture thread, but nothing came of it
