You have my approval but it should be an example of what is in SA eg: LIL GEM or the Notorious Drift Panda :lol:

With all due respect, and despite the fact that Dazz has given us permission to use it, I still think it needs to change. Agreeing with what Dazz mentioned, what we're essentially saying is that the SA Gem community doesn't have a single decent car to use in it's own banner, so we have to "outsource". At least one other person that I've spoken to has agreed with this view, and they aren't a member of the forum. It shouldn't have to be a compromise IMO.

I can think of at least 10 reasonably current SA Gems off the top of my head that would be worthy, and none of them are show quality. They don't need to be, good camera skills are what matter most.

It doesn't necessarily need to be a case of favoritism, were we to put it to a popular vote (the original banner used to be Scottys old TG if I'm not mistaken. Even though it was before my time here, I assume there was no serious issue when it was first drawn up?). Perhaps a vote for the "best early and late" Gems to be placed together, so that no single individual's car is representing the forum. This is also why I keep bringing up a group shot, but we don't seem to be getting anyone coming on cruises for us to do this...

Well to me it sounds like unnecessary politics... but feel free to make a new banner and if It looks the goods i'll flick it up there.

I'm all for this idea, although we are currently limited by the size of the image used for the banner. Currently it can only extend to about as far as the front of the bonnet on the current banner. This wouldn't give us room for a decent line up shot. We could take a shot on the next cruise. That way everyone can have their car in the banner if they so choose to turn up.

Antus is their anyway we can change the banner size? Or would it involve changing everything?

If everyone is happy with the way the current one turned out I would be happy to have a shot at designing a new one.

i would have a max on 3 cars. any more than that and the cars would look too small. Personaly i would just have one feature car like ozgemini's coupe or something like we already have. Shame "Stoy" is'nt on here any more cos his VE green pano with the G180 DOHC would look sick up there! Thats my vote any way

Well I'm personally a HUGE fan of Hones' van. It represents everything we love about out cars and is born and bred right here in South Australia. The orange might even go with our theme :)

That's if he's alright with us using it for a banner.
