Picture Challenge Thread, V.II

Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 08/25/14 11:25 AM

It's been a while since I've seen one. New guys probably don't know what it is, but I remember it being pretty fun back in the day. Thought I'd bring it back, see if any one is interested and we can make it work.

The idea is, A challenge is set. You have to go out and take a picture of your car to fulfill the challenge scenario. Once you do that, you post a new challenge for someone else to fulfill. Then it goes on and on...

Here's an example of what im talking about

http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/f3/f15/85764-ranger-picture-game.html


Here's the CVN rules for this game


Pictures can not be older than two days

Any panther platform vehicle that is covered on CVN, is allowed in the game. But it has to be YOUR car, nobody elses.

Once you post a picture and complete the challenge, you have to post a new challenge

No changing challenges unless a minimum of 3 days have gone by and nobody has fulfilled the previous set challenge. (Meaning the first one you picked was to hard and nobody could do it, so you can make a new one)


Here's an example to say how it'd be done....

If i said "Post a picture of a panther next to a dunkin donuts" and PYPY posts a picture of his crown vic next to a dunkin donuts (You know him, he's gotta have that DD) then that challenge is done/finished/over and he would post a new one. Once a challenge is finished, it cant be repeated....



That being set, I thought I'd set the first challenge. In honor of my recently sold vehicle, lets do Panther next to a Jeep (any Jeep brand vehicle, even a new Cherokee lol).

I make a motion that we open it up to all Panthers, not just the ones we personally own. But I think we should keep it as PHOTOS that we have actually taken. That way it is not just a Google search for photos.

I think we should also change it so that instead of the winner simply posting a description of the challenge, they also post a photo, challenging us.

For example, for the "Panther next to water" challenge I could have posted something like this:



And then issued a challenge like this:

"Take a photo of a panther with a vanity plate" or "Take a photo of a panther with an ugly paint job"



That way there aren't any impossible challenges like "Take a picture of a panther on the moon."

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 12/19/15 03:16 PM

nah, we used to play this a lot. It's best if it's your own Panther and I don't see the point in posting a pic of the pic that you are asking for.

Yes, it is a tomato trellis upside down with lights on it.

Lets see your panthers trip odometer with 3x miles on it (30-39). Kilometers also acceptable, and speedometer at 0 (wife yells at me when doing this while moving).

The thread fades away into the pile of old posts that no one responded to. I'm over the mileage on both trip odometers.

He actually asked for trip odometer rather than regular odometer, so you're still potentially in. Mine are currently over 39 of either, and I probably won't be driving 30km until Thursday or Friday.

Yeah, I noticed that too. I drive 30 miles one-way a day. If I think of it, I'll reset the trip odometer when I leave work, and snap a photo in my driveway at home tonight.

I still think there needs to be a plan for when the challenge goes unanswered, or to we just leave it open until it is fulfilled?

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 12/22/15 10:09 PM

Believe it or not, I was figuring if I won a challenge, I'd ask for a pic of a pet (preferably a dog) in the driver's seat. smile

How about if a challenge isn't met in three days, someone can ask for a new challenge, and if no response is received within one day, and if no one else within that one day says they want to extend it for another three days, then the person who asked gets to set the challenge. That way, people can leave a hard challenge going if they want to (i.e. a three day limit would only become an issue if someone made it an issue, and someone who needs more time can ask for it), and there would be continuity if someone doesn't respond.

No, the original person issuing the challenge needs to be the one to issue a new one. I would rather see the 3 days get extended to 7 to allow people with work schedules to participate. Some folks may only get 1 day per week that they can go out and take a picture.

Yeah, I got busy doing something right after I issued the challenge, but then realized I wasn't specific enough, and was logging on just now to clarify.

My fault. The challenge was met, now on to the next!

Seven days makes sense and would remove the need for an extension. I still think there should be some kind of default though in case, for example, someone participates once and their challenge isn't met and we never hear from them again.

If the challenge isn't met in 7 days, it could go back to the previous challenge, as a 'do over'. For example, if the current challenge isn't met in 7 days, it could go back to 'Picture of a dog in your Panther'. The new winner of that challenge would then be able to issue the next challenge.

Disregard what I said, I don't like that after all.

How about this:

If a challenge isn't met in 7 days, the member who issued it, issues a new one. If that member doesn't issue the new challenge within 3 days of the expiration (maybe they are sick, busy, no longer participating), the winner of the previous challenge gets to issue the new one. If they don't within 3 days, it drops back further, and so on. But I doubt if that will ever happen.

I'd also like to see challenges that involve actually driving your Panther. Stuff like "a pic of a cup of coffee in the cup holder" and "a pic with your windshield wipers on" are pretty lame, and can be met without leaving the garage. That's not what cars are made for. I've got a couple other challenges in mind, based on some of the discussions on other threads. Should be fun.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 12/23/15 11:43 AM

That seems fine with me Blakat.

Question, for your drive through picture, do you have to get out of the car and take the picture while your car is blocking the drive through, or can it be taken from inside the car. And by drive through, do you mean anything with a drive through?

I was thinking about that, and I would love to see a photo from outside the car, but I think from inside the car is good enough, as long as we can see it is a Panther (i.e., dash, door trim, etc.) and it is obviously a drive through window. And yes, anything with a drive through, but it MUST be food or drink. (Not a drive thru toll booth!)

Bonus points if it is a CVPI at a drive thru donut shop! (Which is what I am really hoping to see.)

Heh, got one on my dashcam today. =-)

Depending on location, getting out of the car is simply not possible or practical, so from inside should be allowable.
Should be in general fairly open, mire it down with rules and you will get a lot of people who just won't even bother trying. And it'll keep a lot of the butthurt out of the game. I remember the last one somebody got pissed off becuase they figured their in-challenge "rule" would dominate even after set days of no response elapsed.

(attached ain't for the challenge)

Take a photo of your Panther in a parking space clearly marked for "COMPACT CARS ONLY", or "LOW EMISSION VEHICLES ONLY". Your Panther needs to be in the spot, not just near it!

That's how these threads die. People like me are lazy, we only want to do something realistic and fun-ish.

I remember a few years back I did a challenge of a rubber duckie, a river, and the car in the same shot. Stuff like that made it decent.

Bazinga!

Do I get extra points for having TWO red, in-service engines in the shot?



Next Challenge:

Take a photo of your Panther going through an automatic car wash.


The photo can be taken from outside or inside the car, but the car must be going through the car wash at the time, i.e., we need to see soapy suds, not just a photo 'at the car wash'.

If it is from inside the car, be sure to include enough of the interior, so we can see it is a Panther, i.e., dash, trim, etc.

Winner, winner, chicken dinner! That is exactly what I was hoping to see! Great job.

Now to find a damn train.

A couple weeks ago, my wife and I were stopped at a RR crossing without gates. People normally go through as soon as a train passes, and don't wait for the lights to go off. Well this day, we happened to be second in line (the oncoming traffic could see us.) No one moved until the lights went off. My wife said, "Wow, that's really weird, no one went through the red lights." Then I said, "What are you sitting in?" (She normally drives the mini-van)

Posted by: Castle616

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/13/16 03:36 PM

I think the Dominos Car is a fantastic idea but very poorly executed. They would have a lot more versatility if they would use a Ford Transit. I may be kind of biased tho. ff
Posted by: Blakat

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/13/16 03:47 PM

Dominos could have also just wired up a decent power inverter and installed toaster ovens, and saved a crap load of money. They are 'offering' these cars to franchise owners to purchase out of their own pockets. I certainly wouldn't buy one.

But at least Roush has this car stuck to the wall of the shop in Allen Park, after the assembly plant closed.



But we digress.

Need to find an F150!
Posted by: 2000-CVPI

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/13/16 03:55 PM

Most delivery places around here just make the driver use their own cars. I would guess that it is cheaper to do that then buy a fleet of cars, pay insurance, gas, maintenance, etc.

The Domino's car looks silly, but it still would be very cool to work at a place like Roush.

The work is very interesting and SUPER close to home, but they don't pay their people what they are worth. After 6 months, I couldn't afford to keep working there, and moved on. No more pizza cars, or Harry Potter rides (they do work for amusement parks too), but now I get to work on stuff to keep our troops safe and blow the [censored] out of the enemy!

I didn't think I had a chance, but on the drive home I passed a indoor soccer school. Those places are always good for some sort of exotic car that shouldn't be driven in this weather. I know if I owned a Porsche, I wouldn't drive it in this salt covered weather.

The challenge:

3 Panthers in the same picture, can be your own 3, or 3 others, doesn't matter.

Aw shame, our Euro Marauderville group shot would have worked perfectly but unfortuantely it dates back to August. This is the only time I ever captured 3 Panthers in 1 picture.

The only reason it took me that long was because I didn't feel like digging threw the snow to get to sand. I'll catch you eventually.

After retirement homes, buy here pay here used car lots would have a few panthers. Police departments in poorer areas might still have a few Vics.

I think you should revise this so that at least one of the Panthers is your own, i.e. 'Your Panther with two others'.

There's only a couple left in my entire county. The sheriff's department has the last group of them listed on publicsurplus right now. They were the last department with more than one or two left, at least in my area.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/22/16 08:25 PM

Damn, I actually took this picture over an hour ago, but got stuck in traffic, and couldn't get it up loaded in time!



I know San Jose PD has Crown Vics, so I started off by punching SJPD into my TomTom. Found a hit ten minutes away from my hotel.

I get there, and it is a training facility, with only a single un-marked car in the lot.

Damn.

Then I search for the next closest, 20 minutes away. That turned out to be SJPD Athletic League. One marked car in the lot.

Damn.

Next closest was the SJPD Airport unit, another 20 minutes away. I get there, and there are all sorts of marked cars, but all of them Chevys.

Damn.

Then I figured I would try to find the taxi stand. I thought this pic was cool too.



And I've got [censored] loads of frozen bodies of water back in Michigan! Oh well, wasn't meant to be!

I might be able to do the bell challenge, there is an old chruch bell in one of the neighboring villages in my area that's been put down in front of the church as a monument with a fountain around it however I'm not sure if you can drive up to it close enough to get a proper shot. I will give it a try tomorrow.

Okay, I've been thinking about this one for a while. I think it is pretty safe to say that CVN is somewhat estrogen challenged, so the new challenge is:

Take a photo of your Panther with a female driver, on a public road.

Seriously, a real, adult, human, female, actually driving, and not just sitting in the drivers seat.

If you want to stand on the side of the road and snap a picture as she drives by, great. If you want to sit in the passenger seat, and take her picture while she drives, then that's great too. But the photo should show that she is obviously driving on a public road, and not just your driveway!

If you are female, that's great, just get someone to take your picture, driving your car!

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 02/03/16 06:12 PM



I can probably count on one hand, the number of times I've bought her flowers. She knew what the current challenge was so I was curious what she would say.

I get home, hand her the flowers and say, "Happy early Valentine's Day." She says, "You're so full of crap."

What can I say, after 34 years, she knows me well! I must admit though, the car smelled pretty good on the way home.

Next Challenge:

A photo of your Panther, from outside the car, with a bank, school, or municipal time/temperature sign, showing the current temp.


Extra useless bonus points if it is below 32F or 0C degrees. Negative points if it is above 60F degrees. That's just not right!

Ooh, that's a good one. Too bad I wasn't able to talk the middle kid into letting me get her a CVPI. Her apartment parking lot borders a cow pasture. Sometimes the cows walk right up to the parked cars!

You didn't specify, so I don't know if you mean a real animal, and not a toy/stuffed animal, so I'll wait for a ruling before claiming a win.

There aren't many true farms left in West Knoxville. It sucks. There are a few horse farms around though.

Is that Lama farm still off Ball Road? Or ball camp, I can't remember which one, right before the railroad crossing. I used to pass it when I lived out west.

I couldn't tell you. I haven't been out in that area in a while. It may have fallen victim to suburban sprawl. It isn't developed too bad out there yet though.

I would tend agree with that statement, which is why I didn't claim victory right away, but there is a precedent set with this win:

https://www.crownvic.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=2859411#Post2859411

With that one, the challenge was "your Panther with a reptile". A stuffed gecko toy isn't a reptile, but....

Ok, Black Sunshine gave me the win, so here is the next challenge:

Your panther next to a themed vehicle. Theme must cover entire car. Like an m&ms box chevy. NO police cars, no simple business cars that just say something like State Farm on the doors. Looking for someone's personal car with a corporate theme, like lucky charms, m&ms,Jurassic Park, etc.

Okay, next challenge:

Posted by: GM_Guy

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 02/15/16 11:53 AM

Alright, if the challenge presenter wants to give that a win, though personally, I just wanted to put something cornbinder in here to at least have something IH showing, I'll take it.

On one hand I'm a bit reluctant to continue the farm machinery thread given the full run to try for a corn binder, but I'll change it up a bit; A combine.

I will accept vintage pull behind harvesters, right on up to the modern self propelled monsters.

Bonus points for a cornbinder.
Negative points for a CAT product. (I don't consider them a true farm implement maker).

If the local landscape is any indication, finding a combine will be a much easier prospect.

I'm pretty sure a school of mermaids hooked up their unicorns to all the combines in Detroit, and took them to Area 51.

No chance in Hell of participating in this one. Kind of like Florida members participating in the snowman challenge.

I think you missed my tongue in cheek Detroit agri comment. Agri being the overgrown areas, the empty lots people have turned into garden lots.

I'd be willing to put money down that you would find farm animals in Detroit. Chickens.

Tractors (when not looking for a specific type) are easy, even road crews use them. And parking lot snow clearing being the most common right now. Until last year, there was a Hough Pay Loader used at a particular grocery store parking lot, that thing was from the early 70's. You want obscure, that would be difficult to find.

No farm land surrounding the Detroit area?

So now I am convinced that Wonder Woman loaded up all the combines in her invisible jet, and took them all to Hanger 18.

Relax guy.
We cover an entire continant and more, I'd rather see entries from around the globe, even if it seems there is just a handful of use mostly midwesterners participating here.

Whats so bad about an international border? Its right on your doorstep. Marina, Highway, downtown Detroit, point at the water towards me, and bingo. International border. And think outside the box; metal palm tree, we've even got some of those up here. Summer time when garden centers are open, you got another chance at a palm tree. Challenge will be an outside the car shot for those however for where they are located.

I did think outside the box, but if we don't accept a stuffed sheep as a farm animal, then we can't accept a metal sculpture as a palm tree.



All I'm saying is that we can be creative about what the challenges are, without making it impossible for someone to participate, based on where on the globe they live. I would have no trouble taking a photo of my Panther in front of a store with their sign written entirely in Arabic, but I doubt if anyone outside the Dearborn, Michigan area could.

Ok this may be easy for some but lets try our best.

Your panther very close to a TRULEY abandoned house, not one beat up from foreclosure or a burnt out. A real abandoned house that is just waiting to crumble in.

Yes, but this is also meant to be a fun challenge. Cluttering it up with so many rules kills it.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 02/22/16 09:12 PM

Good challenge jbaker, about got stuck and slung mud all over the side of the vic.





Spotlights rule on p71s.

Real abandoned house down the road, basement is collapsed rest of house is one sneeze away from falling down. Also the halls have creepy painted hand prints on them(sorry no pic tonight, not going in there in the dark alone(that is how everyone dies in scary movies).

Next Challenge: Your Panther near a war monument featuring a weapon. tank, cannon, rifle, etc.

Actually, I was just trying to make it so MORE people could participate. For example, I could make the next challenge to be a photo of your Panther next to an Amish buggy and horse, but then only people in NY, PA, OH and IN could participate.

So that everyone can participate, the next challenge is:

Your Panther next to any vehicle from a different state, province or country.


We need to see the two different license plates in the photo (yours and theirs). If you want to obscure your plate number (I don't know why some people feel they need to) that is fine, but we still need to see the state/province/country for both vehicles.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 02/23/16 04:58 PM

Since we have been told to think out side the box, does this count:



According to ask.com:

drone
[drohn]
NOUN
1.
the male of the honeybee and other bees, stingless and making no honey.
2.
a person who lives on the labor of others; parasitic loafer.
3.
a drudge.

and according to Webster:


Definition of drudge
Popularity: Bottom 40% of words

drudgeddrudg·ing

intransitive verb

: to do hard, menial, or monotonous work
transitive verb

: to force to do hard, menial, or monotonous work

drudg·er noun

Since I do the same thing (monotonous work) day after day, and supervise people doing the same, (force ppl to do the work), I fit the definition of a drone and took this pic from my porch.

So?????? Thinking outside the box here.......

Mr Blakat, while your intentions are noble, there is a lot more out there, that you, I am sure, are aware of exist, even if none near you. Not every challenge has to be easy, not every challenge has to cater to us city folks. If we start getting picky about challenges, then just about each and every one could be called into question. Just becuase you or I may not have access, does not mean somebody else does not have access. I would have thought some of the corn states would have gotten into the combine, but alas not, however, the challenge was met in the time frame allotted.

tldr: Its a challenge. Not everybody has access to everything, but somebody, somewhere does.

toad: metal palm trees only count if the challenge poster doesn't specify a real palm tree.
And the plastic combine would have done the trick if there was a vic with it since I don't think I specified it had to be a real combine.

Alex.

Just trying to keep this from being LAME. I actually considered buying that toy combine, just to take a picture of it with my car, but that would be LAME, and a cheap win, just for the sake of winning.

And all I asked is that we not limit participation based on geography. Every one can unbunch their panties.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 02/23/16 08:11 PM

I think challenges that cater to a certain area, like a palm tree or combine, are interesting, even if they exclude me. I don't think we should start making it so that everyone is included in every challenge. Getting bogged down in rules is what's killed these threads in the past, isn't it?

Out of curiosity, just how in the middle of Detroit are you that country side isn't a reasonable distance? And you got to make the ruins of Detroit work for you in some of these. The lost in the Forest challenge could be, in my opinion been had with an overgrown abandoned housing lot in the background. Think outside the box, and submit. Half the fun can be had seeing the attempts at trying to make a challenge with something open to interpretation. If the sun happens to hit one of those glass towers just right, you can get a prism effect, be pure chance, but things like that you gotta use. Like the palm tree challenge. Available across the country, even Detroit, except for us it won't be a bright sunny sandy background. It'll be a potted plant, a man made steel palm tree, or some art project your kid made at school.

I don't live in the City of Detroit. The entire South East Michigan region is a large urban development, with the City of Detroit along the Detroit River and miles and miles of smaller cities in counties to the North, West and South, and is heavily populated. I live in one of those cities near the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, which is an International airport. (Delta Airlines has its hub here.) And even though my city is considered 'small', it has approximately 60,000 residents.

This is my neighborhood:



I actually drive from my subdivision, THROUGH the City of Detroit, and up to Sterling Heights (30 miles) every day for work:




Notice all the greyish area on the map? That is concrete and asphalt. Not even the green areas on the map are rural. They are just subdivisions that haven't cut down all their trees. No farmland:

Actually that is not a common as you are led to believe. Sure you can find photos of some of those lots, but compared to the hundreds of thousands of lots in the city, its a very small percentage. Besides, that would be totally lame. And like I mentioned before, would be claiming a win for the sake of a win, and not actually fulfilling the spirit of the challenge.

Again, totally lame. And if my daughter's stuffed toy lamb didn't count for a farm animal, then why should anything else artificial?

Wood barns, farm animals, tractors, combines, lost in the woods.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 03/02/16 06:39 PM

Guess I need to do some more driving around the area.

But, ;-) Not lame. Outside the box. And it is up to the challenge poster to accept or reject if doing something not quite to the letter of the challenge.
The only exceptions is if the challenge is specifically worded to include something. Ie: a real goat. Inside, outside the car.

But also consider, if the week is approaching, odds are good you might be the only challenge submitter. And half the fun of this is seeing what people come up with. Ie: the IH challenge, I didn't post that pic to gain a win, I posted that just to get something with IH in the real world, it was Jeff's call wether to accept or reject since he posted the specific challenge. So hey, as that week deadline approaches, let your imagination run with it. At worst, we get a picture to look at. At best, you might gain a win. Its all in the spirit of people trying to capture something.
Out of the box.

I can guarantee I'll find a combine within an hours drive of the Ambasador Bridge...on the Canadian side...since you did not specify hour on the U.S. side... ;-)

Port Huron is about an hour at the prevailing traffic speeds on the I94 speedway isn't it? I always ended up with the box speedo fully wound out on that drive (stupid 85mph speedo they used back then) for the northbound trip. Theres probably some sort of Pioneer village in the area with a pull behind harvester (which was also spec'd in the original challenge as an alternative to a combine)...

That made me laugh. Yeah, I94 north of I696 or west of Detroit usually moves pretty fast, its a crawl getting thru Detroit most of the day. But its nothing like I696 nearing rush hours. Its the only place where I've ever been in bumper to bumper traffic going 95mph. Seriously. I did it twice just today, just after the morning rush, and just before the evening rush, cars all around me everyone going 85-95mph. That was NOT a fun freeway for the driving instructor to choose for our very first time driving on the freeway.

Lol, reminds me of my driver instructor. We got onto I55, and I was doing the speed limit (55) in the right lane. Getting passed by people going 75. Told me to speed up, and thats its okay to bend the rules a bit on the highway lol.

Flow of traffic. I picked up something from riding with that instructor: Whenever trying to merge behind someone who is not accelerating, yell "gas is on the right moron!!". He didn't do that when he had a student driving, but when he was driving.. I still do that to this day, I don't know why. I've been driving for 10 years, and that has just stuck in my head all this time.

I've never seen that in Michigan. City cars are equipped with dividers and barred windows. Arresting officer takes them to jail.

Nope, they just take them in the car to jail. I suppose if they needed to transport a lot of prisoners at once they would use one of the vans the sheriff deaprtment uses to take jail inmates to court.

We use a paddy wagon here in Rockford but I am at work and don't drive Victoria here to often.

Waiting for a new challenge that I can play in.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 03/12/16 04:52 PM

I guess nobody rounds up that gang of no-gooders anymore. =-)

We used to have a lot of paddy wagon's on the road (chevy square body based),now we have one f250 based paddy, and an international based paddy. Very rarely on the road any more.

All our cars are equipped with the same. County lock up can be up to 30 plus miles away so the arrestees are placed in a van then brought to the facility. Van goes to the arrest location to pick them up. County and city patrol do this. I see them daily, sometimes multiple times a day.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 03/17/16 01:00 AM

Lets try this again:

Your panther with a running vehicle 1950 or older.

Lets get your panther with a awesome classic ride.

No convicts, farms, woods, palm trees, snow, rainbows or unicorns.

Maybe this one will be done.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 03/30/16 10:24 PM

Since I'm 0 for 2, lets try this a third time.

Since its spring break time and palm trees are a site favorite, Next Challange, your panther with a palm tree.

Since "real" wasn't specified, there you go. We don't have any Combines in Detroit, but apparently we have the ultra rare, Electric Palm.

Okay, next challenge:

Your Panther with a REAL, and in-use, municipal or commercial water tower.

(And keep the people of Flint, Michigan in your prayers.)

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/01/16 10:06 PM

Ok, I liked jbaker's idea of giving options to win, so one or the other!

A. Your Panther behind or beside an animal transport truck and trailer (18 wheeler that carries chickens, cows, pigs, etc or one of the nice horse trailers (not the farm version pulled by a pick up) (like the Budweiser Clydesdale)

B. Your Panther in a construction site. Residential, commercial or business. Workers need not be present but must be something currently under construction)

Excellent.

Okay, I'll admit I got lucky with the garbage truck challenge, with it being trash day at home.

So to continue that theme, and maybe get into Spring Cleaning mode, the next challenge is:

Your Panther at the trash/garbage dump.

I don't mean just in front of a pile of trash, but at a real trash collection facility.
Posted by: MercRoller

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/02/16 03:41 PM

Well today was take the trash day:
While i was there saw a dude get yelled out for attempting to put a couch in the dumpster, then took off fast and it slide out the back into the road. Smh
Pulling in:



Dropping off trash:



How about them apples?

Lets continue the spring theme:

Your panther with a mower and a fresh mowed lawn!

I mowed today, had to jump the mower off with the vic. Lol

Sometimes I wish I had that, so I wouldn't have to mow (which is mostly weeds and crabgrass, anyways). There is a house near me that went with all rocks and stones in the front, but he layed them out in a stupid radial pattern of alternating colors. Damn thing looks like a display for a landscaping supply company. Hideous.

My dad used to threaten to pull up all his grass and replace it with concrete, and paint it green. At least then I could park my cars on it, without violating any of my city's "no parking on grass" ordinance!

There's a lot of high tech fake grass out here. You have to vacuum it though.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/03/16 01:41 PM

My idiotic, ultra vain neighbor actually vacuums his REAL grass after he cuts it. We call him the Yard Father, partly because he is a priest, and partly because he is obsessed with his yard.
Posted by: Bangster

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/03/16 03:14 PM

My Brother In Law replaced a small grassy patch with fake grass, but still has a patch of real grass in his front yard. He lives in Ahwatukee and pretty much everyone does daily maintenance on exposed grounds. Most houses around his the grassy areas are putting greens.

I planted grass just because it is easier to deal with than weeds. I planted rocks in my front yard because there is too much shade from trees to grow grass. I live in an older neighborhood where weeds lower than knee height means that someone cares.

Well, it is freshly mowed. I'm sure its the same length it was the last time it was mowed, its not like its been growing under all the snow.

side note, we have a lawn and garden company that weed-treats and fertilizes our lawn. They did the spring treatment last week, and the grass greened right up, just in time for the snow to return. At least I haven't had to dig out the mower yet.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/04/16 07:10 PM

Here's mine if this is in dispute:


First year ever I've used a riding lawn mower for the house. I've always relied on my self-propelled Briggs & Stratton 7HP push mower, but since I got this Snapper from my late grandparents' house, why not? Since I've got it tuned up and a new blade on it, saves me almost twice the time to get the yard done.

Since no one has done this, how about a building being a revolving door? As in a jail due to it being a metaphor for a revolving door since the same inmates that leave come right back.

Well, its not what I had in mind, but its hard to argue with the logic and creative thinking. And since its been 6 days, I say yes, you're good to go!

What's the next challenge?

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/21/16 10:56 PM

Woot!

Next challenge your panther under or very near high voltage power lines (not your street level service lines) like these:

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/22/16 09:55 AM

Shazam!



New challenge:

A photo of your Panther next to an ISO container. Container needs to be sitting on the ground, not on a truck. Double extra useless internet points if it is a double stack of containers, triple points for a stack of three, etc.

No double, triple or quadrupple stacks, just a side by side. Actually come to think of it, tommorow might find me in a triple stack location... I'll add it if that the case.

Posted by: GM_Guy

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/25/16 11:17 AM

This one should be doable for everyone, your car reflected in a bank of windows. Inside the car is definately acceptable as the best location in this city is to take the pic while driving down the road as its a long wall of windows at nearly ground level.

Only caveat, the entire vehicle must be visible top to bottom.

My employer prohibits photography too. Only in the secure places though. Saying that an employee cannot photograph something that the public can photograph doesn't make a lot of sense.

goes either way, if its a def win, issue a new one (to me yours is), if outside the box thinking wait for the issuer to say yes or no.
Posted by: a_d_a_m

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/26/16 01:40 AM

Nothing outside the box so I'm gonna go ahead and throw the next challenge down.

Your car with a legitimate* band of 2 or more musicians with their instruments. You must submit the name of the band with your entry. Bonus points if you get a video of them playing a song next to/in your car.



*"legitimate" means a group that actually plays gigs or performs for a live audience. Let's also exclude kids who perform solely for family and friends. The band entered must perform semi-regularly in a public setting for people who you don't personally know.

Correct. That is a definite win, and your first one!

I'd be happy with just the name of the band, but I'll also give 1000 extra internet points for including a media link. And 1000 more if I like the band.

I have pictures of a band doing a complete set feet from my car.

Just one minor issue... a garage door separates them. They played atop a large and fresh mercon V stain, as the car was pushed in the night before.

Should have had them play on car, sign it, then auction off to charity. Literally tens of dollars would have been awarded to the Human Fund.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 04/27/16 03:19 PM

The rules are unfair and the picture challenge system is rigged. The CVN establishment are crooks who aim to subvert the will of the members.

I would also add that I have never won a picture challenge but could do it easily, very easily, if I ever wanted to. I dont, and that is why I choose not to participate. But I would consider if said rules would be more fair to me.

My friends tell me all the time, "you should try the picture challenges thread", or "you would be excellent at the picture threading" I thank them but also remind them of my disinterest.

Okay, do tell. I've tried a couple times to better define the rules, but the majority of the participants have shot me down, preferring to leave it loose, saying that too many rules have killed this in the past.

To be quite honest, since the Whackerphobic old boys clique have declared open season on Blakat, the Picture Challenge is one of the few reasons I still log on. If you have a suggestion to make this more interesting or fair, I'm sure we'd all love to hear about it.

To certain others... no need to post a Tina Fey pic or to make vulgar comments about sand. It is understood.

I was thinking that CVN was in some sort of dust bowl with all of the sand blowing into certain guys girly parts. Either that or about six guys have synced thier menstruation cycles around here.

I tried to make it as unvulgar as I could, so the pms team won't get offended too much.

Next challenge:

A photo of your Panther, taken from outside the vehicle, next to a real (no toys like my last lame photo), civilian vehicle done up in a camouflage paint scheme. Can be any camo pattern, including 'winter' or urban camo.



1000 extra useless internet points if you get a shot of a car maker's camo pattern, like the ones those of us in metro Detroit get to see all the time.


(This shot was taken on Oakwood Blvd in Dearborn, about 2 miles from my house.)

Yep, new Challenge:

A picture of a toy/model version of your Panther in the foreground, and your real Panther in the background. It can be die cast, plastic model, whatever. The equipment does not need to be exactly the same (thinking about CVPI's) but the toy version needs to at least be the same color as the real one, and it needs to be the same style, i.e., Box, Aero or Whale.

This. Been the standard for a while. One week, new challenge, unless somebody gets creative interpretation and it is accepted by the issuer.

I've seen a guy with a nice Marauder around my neighbourhood a few times, we've exchanged thumbs ups while driving but I have no clue if he is on this site! Other than that I haven't seen anyone (albeit I haven't been looking) from Mississauga.

I'm about 5 years early to the challenge.

After two weeks, it's getting ridiculous. It isn't just Blakat, when two weeks go by its time to pick a new challenge.

I could possibly get this done, but the panther is really my dad's, and he drives it everyday. So no bueno. Unless sticking panther badges on my BMW counts.

Have the rules changed? From the first post in this thread (2 weeks = 14 days > 3 days):

The idea is, A challenge is set. You have to go out and take a picture of your car to fulfill the challenge scenario. Once you do that, you post a new challenge for someone else to fulfill. Then it goes on and on...

Here's an example of what im talking about

http://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2/f3/f15/85764-ranger-picture-game.html


Here's the CVN rules for this game


Pictures can not be older than two days

Any panther platform vehicle that is covered on CVN, is allowed in the game. But it has to be YOUR car, nobody elses.

Once you post a picture and complete the challenge, you have to post a new challenge

No changing challenges unless a minimum of 3 days have gone by and nobody has fulfilled the previous set challenge. (Meaning the first one you picked was to hard and nobody could do it, so you can make a new one)


Here's an example to say how it'd be done....

If i said "Post a picture of a panther next to a dunkin donuts" and PYPY posts a picture of his crown vic next to a dunkin donuts (You know him, he's gotta have that DD) then that challenge is done/finished/over and he would post a new one. Once a challenge is finished, it cant be repeated....



That being set, I thought I'd set the first challenge. In honor of my recently sold vehicle, lets do Panther next to a Jeep (any Jeep brand vehicle, even a new Cherokee lol).
Posted by: Blakat

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 05/27/16 03:24 PM

Once the challenge was resurrected, the active participants worked on evolving the guidelines to what they are now.

- Panther must be your own.
- Photo must be new.
- Time limit for completion: 1 week. (Was expanded from original 3 day limit.)
- If challenge is not met in one week, a new one is issued by same challenger.
- If new challenge is not issued in 3 days, it goes back to previous challenge winner to issue new challenge, and so on.
- No re-issuing of old challenges.
- 'Outside the box' entries require approval of the challenge issuer. i.e., a photo of a prison as a 'revolving door'.

I think that's everything.

That's just it Adam, there isn't any members within 90 miles of me, again 90 miles. It isn't lazy, it's the cost of a tank of gas to attempt this challenge. CVN is poor, and I won't drive that far unless I get a Dutch rudder which appears to be only given out in Ohio and sometimes in Chicago.

Okay, sounds good.

According to the guidelines we've been following, it falls back to me to issue the next challenge:

In honor of Memorial Day, take a photo of your Panther (from outside the car) with a full sized (3' x 5' or larger) American flag usa

If you live outside the US, please feel free to substitute with your own national flag.

Yes, I know that. But I can't "lead" people to not be aloof, whiny, socially anxious, geographically disadvantaged, etc. - I can only suggest it. Ultimately, though, the members can do what they want - and appear to be doing just that. I guess I put more reverence in the word "challenge", though.

I really wish I knew any local CVN people. The only guy I can think of that's here and is close enough to reach in a day lives in Columbia, SC, but he's usually busy throughout the week. He made some intro posts, but I don't think he did anything beyond that. I love putting a face to a name on forums like this, particularly because it humanizes things a bit more, or at least for me.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 05/28/16 05:35 PM

Dude, while your emotions are stressed after your recent event (been there, know where you are coming from), if you check out the thread, one week has been the standard from the beginning, and its been stated earlier (a page back or two) by yourself that there will be no re-issuing of unmet challenges. Two weeks is technically a violation of both mutually agreed upon rules, one of which was clarified by yourself.

Don't blame me, blame my wife. She wanted them on the hood so they wouldn't try and run away. And they are her foster kittens, so she made the call to put them on the hood. Stupid cats, and stupid women.

Her ideas for the next challenge were harder than the meet another member challenge. She wanted two girls in bikinis washing a Crown Vic, a girl in a bikini on the hood of a Crown Vic, etc. These cars are the definition of anti-Viagra, so that would never happen.

The next challenge is to have a picture of yourself next to your car wearing sandals and black socks. You don't have to show your face if you don't want to.

Misspelled marquee signs also acceptable

Next challenge might be super easy, or super tough, depending on where you live. It will also be a little different depending on where you live:

A photo of your Panther (from outside the car) parked at a business with a bilingual sign.

Caveats:

If you live in the US, one of the two languages can NOT be Spanish.
If you live in Canada, one of the two languages can NOT be French.
If you live outside North America, the sign needs to be in your country's 'native' language, and the other language can NOT be English.

For example, this in Dearborn, Michigan, United States, five miles from Ford World Headquarters.

Obviously you haven't driven thru Dearborn or SW Warren. EVERYTHING is in Arabic in parts of both of those areas. The one junkyard I frequent has signs in English and Arabic, but I think all of them are either in the building or in the yard where I can't easily get my car in the shot.

Yes, I parked like a dick, but it was 15 seconds, so no harm.





For being 50 miles north of Mexico it was pretty easy to find Middle Eastern and Asian places, the one I used to actually frequent was gone, so I did have to do a little adventuring.

hmm, lets get under the hood for this one.

A picture of you pointing to whatever in the list below your Panther is equipped with (this is under the hood, not on the fuel tank):
  • Fuel Injection Pressure Regulator
  • Fuel Rail Pressure Sensor
  • Fuel Injection Pressure Damper

Okay, since it is June and summer vacations are starting:

Your panther with a Welcome to "whatever state here" sign. I will accept it from inside the car since stopping on the interstate is usually not a good idea these days.

Will also take one from outside your panther at a State Welcome center rest area. Has to be a welcome center not your normal rest area.

Well, I haven't followed the thread for quite some time, so I'm not sure what's been done recently, so how about let's do something positive for humanity. A picture with your Panther paying it forward. Whether it be buying the guy behind you a cup of coffee, donating some food or water to the needy or just helping someone change a tire or doing work on their car.

I would agree if this wasn't first and foremost, a photo challenge. If someone can be helped in the process, then it is a bonus.

Not on your life. Besides, there is no way to do it, as it is a cashless transaction, routed through Uber (so they can get their cut) and the banks.

Exactly. I like the challenge.

It should be easy enough. Snap a photo of a guy like this when you hand him a buck out the window of your Panther, and you'll both win.

I certainly hope

1. No one hear would use that as a reason for not helping someone in need.

2. No one is STUPID enough to fall for this trick. If you read the ABC News Story about this incident, the undercover cop was not actually pan handling, but rather watching for seat belt and cell phone violations.

Regina Police confirmed that Rusk was issued a ticket but said an officer would not have written a ticket to a person who had simply removed his or her seat belt to take out change.

Back to the topic....

I saw THREE people on the side of the road on the way home yesterday, but in all three cases, I was a couple lanes over, and by the time I realized it, I didn't think I could cut across the lanes of traffic safe enough to pull over. I usually don't feel guilty about blasting past broken down cars on the highway, but this thread has made me think about it more. I'm sure I'll get another chance tonight.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 06/17/16 11:21 AM

I was getting on the expressway this morning, when I spotted a gentleman (Pete) standing on the side of the road with a gas can in his hand. Turns out the place he needed to go was only 2 miles from where I was already going.



And no fair making fun of the pic. This is my first selfie ever!

Next challenge:

A photo from outside your Panther, parked in a space with a Parking Meter . Has to be a real meter (and not a parking lot with a central pay station), and the meter must NOT be expired!

Okay.
Your car next to a cardboard cut out of a person - life-sized or larger, must be a full body one and not just a big face.



If you cannot find one, you may make one out of cardboard but it has to be of a CVNer (in other words, print their face and staple/tape it to a large piece of cardboard that has arms and legs that you've drawn).

Without the tribal knowledge, a lot of members have no idea wtf2 you're talking about.

But, most days on my route to work, there is a motor cop set up on Van Dyke in Warren, MI. So hoping to capture an actual speed trap in a Panther, I started shooting video. And sure enough, I found him!

It's hard to make out, but you can sort of see him in the parking lot, writing the ticket.

I read an article long time ago about taking car photos for submission to magazines for publication. There were a few key points, so since we are on the subject...

1. Unless the vehicle is an off-road vehicle, the car should always be photographed on a driving surface. (Paved road, un-paved road, driveway, etc.) Never on grass, sand, etc. Exceptions would of course be Bonneville, Daytona Beach, etc.

2. No three-wheeled vehicles. For some reason, editors really hate that. All photos should show either 2 or 4 wheels at a time.

3. All windows up. (Except convertibles)

4. Even lighting. No weird shadows. Reflections are okay, as long as it is complimentary (like mountains in the background, but not the photographer!)




Pavement, 2 wheels, windows up. But even this would probably get rejected because of the weird stripe on the ground 'touching' the rear tire. Can't remember now if that was actually on the ground, or a shadow. I should have moved forward a little bit, or airbrushed it out!



FAIL! Took this photo before I read the article. Pavement, even lighting, no weird reflections, windows up.... three wheels. SMH

I would accept a Lincoln dealership, if your Panther is a Town Car. (Didn't think of that when I issued the challenge)

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 06/29/16 01:05 PM

Well look at that. I just happened to bring my car to work today and I work at a Ford dealership. I'll upload the pic as soon as I have a chance to take it. ff




Next challenge. Picture of your panther next to a Hummer.
Must be an actual Hummer any version. No toy vehicles.

There is a new, really cool near bridge near me. (Counter weight on one side only.) Problem is that you never know when it might be up.

Maybe you should allow for bridge to be down. Chicago has a stit-ton of drawbridges. Most of them are either never used/used twice a year/used when filming batman movies.

The bridge Elwood jumped might get used more regularly. That said, I've never seen it up(to be fair I mostly drove over it at night) and wouldn't drive out to it with the hopes and dreams it might be used.

And once again, an a_d_a_m challenge is too challenging. Meanwhile, I drive 30 miles to take a picture in front of dumpy old FirstEnergy Stadium and don't even complain.

Try the Route 30 drawbridge over the DesPlaines River in Joliet... it operates frequently... usually when you're trying to beat it. mad

I've found some of the neatest things at flea markets. At least half of my tools are from flea markets, and all of my Snap-on tools were bought for pennies on the dollar at them.

I didn't go into the one pictured though. It looked like the kind of place that the owner wear human skin as clothes.

While that does look like a seedy flea market, the comment was based on its name.

MM'Kay?

Side note, flea markets near me have mostly crap. Mostly rusted out G series vans selling ebay bulk purchase, crap Chinese quality, easy to sell items. For every 1 person selling interesting stuff, there is 99 others selling socks and usb chargers.

Sure. I didn't think that finding a nice Panther would be that hard. I saw a almost perfect 1988 MGM today. If the tail light hadn't been given the senior citizen treatment, it would have been mint.

That's what I was thinking too. Maybe put the spare tire on and it would count. It is a nice looking Towncar L though.

How about a slight modification? Your Panther next to a box body Panther that isn't completely clapped out. That should be easier to accomplish without having to work too hard.

Your challenge was pretty tough for me. Got up, drank 8 cups of coffee while looking at CVN, walked outside, rolled down the mountain that doubles as my driveway, took pic then I cropped pic 20 times to get under the 1mb limit.

The new challenge is pretty easy. Our PD just got a new armored SWAT vehicle, I thought a panther next to one of those would be fun, but probably too hard for most or too easy for others.

Auto sales new and used must be doing well this summer that there are no attention getters to be seen.

It's a few months late, but on Saturday I met Blakat in person at the Henry Ford Museum where he was a part of the Detroit Maker Faire.

I even tried his game out against him and lost. The pictures of Blakat's work didn't do the game justice, it was very well made. Photo for proof, and yes I'm fat. I'm married and have reproduced twice so there isn't much left for me to do but post about Panthers.

I found two more sky dancers Friday. Oh well, since I'm in a crappy mood this morning, then that's the new challenge. A photo of your Panther with bird crap on it. Most of us shouldn't have a problem finding that in the next week!

Next challenge. Your Panther was something oversized tied to the roof. A mattress, ladder, xmas tree, whatever. And not a posed driveway shot, one rolling down the road or in the parking lot.

Challenge issuer has a say in the matter. But it is a good chop.

Might be waiting a long time for this one as well since I suspect other than the odd christmas tree, not too many people see their car as a work platform.

Ok, I don't know if I have the authority but I am going to change the challenge. The point was made that most don't abuse their rides as if it was a truck. So...how about your Panther in a nice pic with some or one big wind turbine power generator thing in the background.

We generally give it a week for a challenge to be met, but in this case, I think its fine.

No wind turbines anywhere near me, so I'll sit this one out!

The roof load I figured was unfair to those who have nice rides as opposed to my utilitarian cvpi, it is my work truck right now. I was driving in the Thumb, tons of wind turbines up there... And I like the idea of meeting some of the members here, seem like quite a few are local to me.

This thread is completely and absolutely rigged. It's true, it is. It's even more rigged than the pay to play corruption they call POTM.

It's sad, yeah, It really is. Honestly CVN, I'm not very surprised. In fact I even called it months back.

I complete 3 challenges, yes three challenges, completed them greatly I must say. But the establishment elite, refuses to accept how much I am winning and/or how much I've won.

On the other hand, we have some Canadian who enters his car in POTM and guess what, he wins. Yeah, you cant make this up people...you cant make it up. Don't get me wrong, I have a lot of respect for the Canadian peoples, and they love me, but how unpatherlike of this site to award POTM overseas. I mean first Oreo, now this? gimme a break. We dont even know if this BigNSlow character is even a panther enthusiast. I'm not saying he isn't, but the question needs to be asked, but I'll let the people decide for themselves. There is defiantly something going on, trust me.

It was not the "establishment" who called BS on your latest entry, it was me. Are you really going to say that is your car with a real 400 ton hunk of rock on the roof? As far as winning, winning what? I got the last picture challenge and guess what, no check in the mail box. Look at my join date, a couple months ago. No "establishment elite" here. You did not win the last challenge, not even close.

Posted by: 124neta

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 08/05/16 09:23 PM

Early April fools joke is exactly the kind of spin I would expect a Canadian to put on this. Well, guess what? He's already begun backpedaling and and openly admits he's been paid off. It doesn't get any more cut and dry folks, it really doesn't.

The fact is, my car is very photogenic... very photogenic..I'm talking Victoria Secret photogenic. It is, but that's not me saying it. I have many members that tell me, "Neta, why does your car look so fantastic in photographs." I tell them,"its the angles"... truth of the matter is, its simply a far superior car. And I'm not saying that to make myself look good, it's just facts. My car is quite simply much nicer than theirs, very much nicer.

I think that's the root of the problem. They're thinking, "hey, how did this guy come out of nowhere, with no experience, and crush us at our own game." Some people dont like to lose. It's sad, but true. Unfortunately I cant offer them any help, as I have no experience in the matter.

I am kidding, yes, you can win every other one if your motivated enough. I don't think you can win your own challenge, however I know on other boards they like to make the challenger fulfill the challenge before changing it if no one else gets it. So you don't go totally unrealistic or so specific that no one can or wants to try.

That seems like a rough challenge. I think the number of Vics with trailer hitches is limited, and I don't know who has motorcycles or a trailer on which they can tow them. Good luck to any that do, however.

It is inferred. The basic premise from way back in post 1;

You have to go out and take a picture of your car to fulfill the challenge scenario.


Pretty clear cut to me, go take a photo of the car that meets challenge criteria.
Not; manipulate a photo of your vehicle to meet challenge criteria.

Alex.
Posted by: 124neta

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 08/12/16 06:56 PM

I did take a pictures of my car, and it involved going out.

As far as the rules:

Quote:

Here's the CVN rules for this game


Pictures can not be older than two days

Any panther platform vehicle that is covered on CVN, is allowed in the game. But it has to be YOUR car, nobody elses.

Once you post a picture and complete the challenge, you have to post a new challenge

No changing challenges unless a minimum of 3 days have gone by and nobody has fulfilled the previous set challenge. (Meaning the first one you picked was to hard and nobody could do it, so you can make a new one)


I've played by the rules, I follow rules very well. Rules are very important to me, I'm a great rules guy. Ive also put more work into a challenge than 99% of the winners have, much much more. No offense, some of the winners are good people, but going out to the garage and snapping a photo of your panther next to a water bottle? Is that hard? Gimme a break...

But you know, I get it... I'm an outsider and it scares the career posters. I called it from the very beginning, I did. It doesn't get anymore rigged than this people, it really doesn't. Believe me.
Posted by: jbaker

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 08/12/16 07:06 PM

Now you know dang well it's can get more rigged than this, you live in Cook County,

you also have been around long enough to know that unless chopping is mentioned in the challenge, it's not accepted

This thread has to be the most uptight and unable to take a joke on CVN. That said, Mods:please move to FoMoCo News.

I really didn't think I was discouraging people from actually participating.

I'm sorry if you really thought I was upset I wasn't winning. It was a sarcastic response to the criticism of the pictures not being real.

I apologize for forcing you to see a crappy chop of a panther towing Evil Knievel over a line cars. That must have been very difficult to take in.

Next challenge: A Forced Perspective photo of your Panther. Need to be a real photo, using only the camera and your imagination to create the effect. NO PHOTOSHOPPING.

No takers on the last challenge, so here's the new one:

A photo of your panther, from outside the vehicle, parked next to/near any three-wheeled motorized vehicle.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 09/15/16 10:56 AM

Let's try another....

A photo of your Panther, from outside the vehicle, next to a pile of old tires. Pile needs to be at least as high as your hood. Double extra useless internet points if the pile is higher than the roof!

Nope. Big piles just like shown, usually with a gutted fiberglass boat and a few appliances thrown on top for good measure.

Depending on the tire shop, sometimes they pile them up waiting to go to the disposal company.

Next Challenge: Your panther (from the outside) next to its complete opposite. Example: Your white p71 next to a black marquis or Mercury Marauder.

Next challenge, your panther being pampered, hand wash and wax, fluid change, detail etc.
Posted by: bluejay_32

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 10/04/16 05:54 PM

It's been too chilly here in New York lately for a wash and wax, although today was nice.

So, how about a fluid change: drained 2 gallons of nasty smelling coolant today.


Gonna have to do it at least a couple more times.
Also filled up the smurfs and changed plugs.

I await your approval (or disapproval as the case may be.)

Alright, since it's been two days with no response, and yesterday was seven days since toad issued the challenge, I guess I will claim victory and issue a new challenge (unless someone decides to rebuke me.)

Since out of state plates has already been done, Your car (with your license plate) with another car from the same state with different style plates.

Example: You can see my plate in the last picture, and this the abomination that New York issues now:


I will also accept plates supporting sports teams, organizations, etc. The kind that usually have a logo on the left and then the number.

Can I make it both of my cars with both of my plates? One has the old "blue bar" MI plate, the other has the ugly current "wave" plate.

They may not be hard, but I don't have time to just drop everything and go out for a photo. Or as my luck has been running with these, I'm in the wrong vehicle when I stumble on the perfect location.
I'll give this to your challenges, at least you don't have the stupid 'from outside your car' b.s. for each and every one you post.

Agreed. The spirit of these challenges is to get a photo of your vehicle in an interesting place, or situation.

New challenge:

A photo of your Panther, from outside the vehicle, next to any political campaign sign. Since the election was over a week ago, I'm hoping this will be a bit of challenge, but considering how lazy people are in taking them down, it might not be too hard.

Yes. When I bought the second of the twins, it still had the factory rear deck strobe light assembly. It had the standard CHMSL, flanked by red and blue lights using the same CHMSL cowl, but with clear lenses.





I liked the look, so I grabbed a couple extra CHMSL's from the junk yard. I needed to make a custom bulb holder for the extras (to avoid cutting the rear shelf to mount them the same), wired them together, and put in LED's.

For Isabella (the one I drive), I added a brake light flasher to the two extra (outer lights), after confirming with the Michigan State Police that it is legal. Alfonso (the one my daughter drives), are all three steady burn.

Now let's see how many Whackerphobes come out of the woodwork to comment.

A couple days ago, I got stuck in stop-and-go traffic behind a Chevrolet SUV (Equinox?) which had a CHMSL that blinked three times every time the driver stepped on the brakes. It was aggravating... almost like following someone with a stuck turn signal.

Yep, that ^^^ was my scene, but slower traffic and closer together.

Out on the highway at speed, it's eye-catching, and appreciated; in heavy traffic, it's annoying to have a red light in the center of my vision, blinking almost non-stop.
Posted by: 09P71VIC

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 11/22/16 02:24 PM

I don't see the issue. I think the flashers are awesome. I get tailgated so often, I hope I dont get rear ended. That may save you from people not paying attention.

Now whacker phobes can worry about bigger issues. I have a local with a light bar and radars (or whatever they are) mounted on the trunklid... that's a whacker.

I agree and people are dumb AF here. Two bad accidents turned my evening commute from 65 minutes to 105 today. I got rear ended last week. I already have a flashing CHMSL. I got it after the last time I was rear ended. I've been rear ended 4 times in the last 13 months. Twice was sitting at lights; twice on the freeway because of a slow down.

Maybe for you. Around here the weather, the driving conditions and Chrysler's legendary s****iness combine to make the vehicles in question considerably rarer than unicorns. How about an easier challenge, like your Panther with a Leprechaun or your Panther with Hoffa.

Last time I saw one of those was at least two years ago, but I think that Caravan was a 1994 model. That would make it eight or nine years.

There's not even any Jeeps of that vintage around your parts? I would expected those to have held up somewhat.

Since the cars don't rust out down here easily, the amount of junk that clanks around is amazing. Heck, every few weeks, I can catch a guy driving around in a Daihatsu Rocky on my way to work.

I don't think there's a single Chrysler product left around here thats older than '98, they all rusted to bits or otherwise fell apart. Well, I do have a regular customer with 2 RamChargers, but those are from Arizona and are garaged this time of year. I can't remember the last time I saw a K-Car on the road. There is a '81 New Yorker at a local pawn shop, its in remarkably good shape, but totally buried in snow right now.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/05/17 02:26 AM

No idea, at first glance I thought it was a wisk of some type. But I'm really not sure, what is it?
Posted by: MercRoller

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/05/17 03:51 AM

Ha, it has little plastic ends so the townie is safe from scratches. Lol

Not a wisk, any other guesses?

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/05/17 08:49 AM

It is a head scratcher/massager. Feels pretty good, especially on my bald gourd.

New challenge: Your Panther parked next to a vehicle from a defunct brand (Pontiac, Saturn, Plymouth, etc.)

Caveat: For Mercury, it must be a non-Panther Mercury.

The picture is to be new for the challenge, or just a random pic you took in the last few days that fills the challenge, I guess it doesn't look like that in Detroit this time of year?
Posted by: bluejay_32

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 01/15/17 09:22 PM

I forgot about that. Rules state it does have to be a new picture. That does not look like January in Detroit with green trees and a motorcycle in the yard.

Well the frame around the front lower control arm mounting is has rusted away. If your familiar with the old 900, the boxed section where the drive shafts go through. It's a bummer because it is a lower mileage SPG or Aero in Europe and I have a decent amount into it. The plan is to find another one out west that hasn't been exposed to salt and transfer the powertrain, suspension and everything else I can to it from mine. I probably won't find another SPG, but I like the idea of a sleeper 5 door if I could find one or just a plain looking hatchback. It will be worth the trouble, it's a blast to drive and with around 250whp it is much faster then it appears.

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 06/28/17 05:48 PM

Just got home and looked it up on my computer because it sucks to do it on the phone.

Yes, it is a 1967 Plymouth Belvedere II sedan, which is a B-body

The other car ended up being a 1966 Plymouth Fury III, which is NOT a B-body (1965-1974).

SO, if this qualifies for the challenge, I will issue a new one.




Since it's been SO HOT recently in many parts of the country...

Take a picture of your car next to a temperature display sign.

Meaning, the signs you see at some banks that display the current time and temp.

Extra internetz for a triple-digit temp.

She's not an outdoor cat. I took her out in her carrier and got in the passenger seat with her. I took the picture like that so you can't see my hand holding her up on the steering wheel.

Your Panther with a non-Federal flag. State, Provincial, local, military, etc. along with the jurisdiction it belongs to.

Panther with a flag (check)

Flag can't be US flag, or any other government related flag?

Yeah, I saw the non-Federal part.

It's just that I have never heard of it phrased like that.

I figured that it would be more of a patriotic theme (being 4th of July weekend and all).

Not submitting as a winner but just because of the said theme.

I could argue under the guise of "etc." that the gay pride flag denotes a "jurisdiction" so to speak.

That's where I was confused. By meaning "non-federal", I thought you mean NON-GOVERNMENT (which I thought was odd since it's the 4th of July weekend). In my mind, I bundled all government flags including state flags and city flags.

Just hope someone doesn't go out and post a confederate flag as I would prefer someone post a gay pride flag instead.

So, that's why I mentioned (cynically) about the gay pride flag.

Dammit, my ineloquent use of language.

I shall try to clarify, again. Your Panther with a flag that represents a valid, recgonised State, Province, county, city, region, or a military branch of service.

The gay pride flag doesn't apply to a specific jurisdiction so that one doesn't count.
I disagree.
The challenge doesn't specify a "non-Federal government flag".

I could argue under the guise of "etc." that the gay pride flag denotes a "jurisdiction" so to speak.

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.

I'm not going to issue a new challenge, but I will modify it.



Your Panther with literally ANY flag, the gay pride rainbow flag, the P.O.W. flag, a white flag of surrender, even one of those flags they sell at Big Lots for people to fly on holidays like Easter or for a spring or summer; with the following exceptions:
Exception 1: Current national flags. The 50-star flag, the Maple Leaf, The 1801 Union Jack, etc.

A U.S. Flag with 13 to 49 stars, the Canadian Red Ensign, the original Union Jack (I do know a place in New York that flies the 1609 Jack), etc. meet the challenge.

Exception 2: Current or vanquished enemies of the United States of America.

In other words, Isis flag is NOT OK,
Nazi flag is NOT OK,
and of course

15 to 49 bonus points (depending on number of stars) for a U.S. flag that doesn't have 13 or 48 stars

58 bonus points for a rainbow flag
(L=12, G=7, B=2, T=20, Q=17 - LGBTQ = 12+7+2+20+17=58)

72 bonus points for a P.O.W./M.I.A. flag
(1972 was the year that my dad spectacularly failed his army physical)

An awesome Cheap Trick song for a white flag

And 1,800 bonus points for an original Union Jack.

Does a Navy airplane count as a military vehicle?

It's hard to see, but I have the flags of some of the branches of service and the P.O.W. flag in there, too. I think it's air force, marines and coast guard, but it's hard to tell.

According to a dictionary vehicle is a land based mover. Just saying, it isn't up to me, I want to see one I can do again, since I have the car for another week, and I can't talk my daughter into parking near a fire truck and taking a picture.

If I owned a car that was worth. . . whatever a Ferrari's worth, I wouldn't drive it down Maple Rd. between Hopkins and Forest; especially with the construction they're doing there for the last few months. Hell, I don't REALLY like driving my Panther there, which is worth. . . probably slightly more than a used Verano.

We just had presidential elections over here and we have reelected Merkel, yet again (ugh!) she's been in office for 12 years now so it's really time for a chance but we won't be getting that thanks to our dumb voters. I prefer the US where a president can only be reelected once.

Anyway the election signs are still up but we have no lawn signs, they put them on light poles here. If that also counts, I might do this one.

About to change the oil on 3 cars (my CV, wife's Subaru, and daughter's Skylark) this morning as it is nice and cool. Better now than when it starts to get COLD!!!

Flag picture was yesterday.







SO, next challenge... (keeping in the Fall theme).

Your Panther with a pumpkin.

Ummm... I'm going to have to say no on that one. Not only not a movie, it's not a slasher movie. I know it says HORROR in the title, but its far from it. It's like saying Monty Python's Holy Grail is a religious movie.

Alright, I guess I'll call it half a win.



Halloween is now behind us, U.S. Thanksgiving is around the corner and Christmas is not far off - I wish it was a lot farther off - but next up is Remembrance Day (Veteran's Day for those of you who are not subjects of the Queen) - so your Panther with a red poppy flower.

That's a good question. I just went up to Wheatfield to where the train tracks run along the side of Erie Ave. But they don't have any lights or gates there, they just use the stop lights.



Train tracks, railroad crossing sign, and traffic light:


This is the only one with any kind of light on it and it's . . . pointed toward the tracks? confused
Posted by: jbaker

Re: Picture Challenge Thread, V.II - 11/08/17 10:11 PM

so are those active red lights for a on coming train? if so, Win., if not no win. by active I meant lit as in a light dosn't have to be a crossing, could be switch or other signal, or gate.

Alright, it's getting warm outside, and lawns are greening up (especially if you employ True Green or some outfit like them); so, how about a shot of you mowing with a Panther in the background? Grass clippings need to be flying from the lawn mower to prove it's not simply a staged shot.

Sometimes it is taking the challenge and putting your own spin on it. I don't have bodies of water at my easy disposal, but I won one by parking next to a bottle of water.

Lucerne and bike rack should be doable now that I have the car back. Will have to give it a shot come morning

I know there's not been much traffic lately, but I'll refresh this one again and add the one I left out because it was time of year dependent.

Nobody wants to play on either site anymore.

NEW CHALLENGE!: Your Panther with a dictionary, open to the definition of panther.

Any kind of dictionary. You could bring up Wikipedia or Urban Dictionary on your phone (although I don't know how you would then take the picture), it could be a Marvel dictionary open to Black Panther. I'll even accept Webster's.

I really hope you appreciate this, because it made me roll out of my nice, warm bed AND I almost hit a campus police car because the dude didn’t have any lights on.

REVISED CHALLENGE: a photo of your panther with one of another marque (Mercury with a Ford, for example) and generation (a whale next to an Aero for another example).

No, but I’d say it’s a different generation due to the suspension differences

Aero Town, Whale Marq.

Opening day was yesterday, and I'm currently watching the Cardinals and Brewers, so your Panther with some kind of baseball equipment. Gloves, bats, balls, bases, etc. Extra points for creativity.
