scott,

the yellow vert looks like mojojojojoey's project car but it might be n1tr0's old vert, the black one is geozukigti's first twincam vert, and the silver one is jeff webster's creation.

the blue culcon is a stock shot from a japanese brochure.

where's me winner's crown? :lol:

My two can be seen in my album until I can figure out how to link to my gallery. The yellow one is a stock '90 Firefly I sold to a friend and the white one is my GT conversion project before I lifted a wrench on it. It's now a running shell, nearly ready to go for body and paint at my buddy's shop.

here's topdown@-40's verts.
Image

here's a tip; hit the "quote" button for this post and you can see the syntax used to link to your pic. notice the change from "page.php" to "pic.php" to let the server know you want to display an image.

the server really likes your pics re-sized for 640x480. that size displays within the frame of the page with good resolution.

Thanks T3 and Jags. I'll work on that in the future. Those pics are from a borrowed camera and I had no idea about picture sizes then. I now have all my own stuff that I have learned to use so smaller pics are what I'll be posting from now on.I'll still be capturing at high resolution for the detail and to send attached to e-mail but I now have a copy of Photoshop so I can re-size them for Teamswift.

I'm back in the game. I sold my '94 coupe 5 years ago to my cousin, who is still driving it by the way, and I just picked up a '91 Vert 5-speed. It has 150,000 on the clock but just had a whole bunch of work done. It's basically a new car under the hood. I'll post some post-washing pictures this evening, but here she is:
