It's the Biker in me. I love having the wind in my face, plus I can listen to the car better

I'm actually thinking about getting it printed out and framing it. I have a real (not by me) hand-drawn picture of the 2000 I had, and think it would be neat to have a matching one of the 05

Yes, I was talking to you, about that pic to the right in your profile.

I think some of the best pictures look good because of luck. I've taken many pics of my car that I thought looked good on the LCD screen, but blown up, they looked like crap with the lighting and all.

Then, pics that I just shoot for "fun" or with no real intent, come out looking great

BTW, you have a steady hand for 95 mph.

Thanks Mike!

That is some cool shiznit. Too bad I don't have any wall space in the garage for stuff like that. I don't think the wife would care too much for a big car pic like that in the living room.

Whoops, that was a typo. I meant 75 mph. The speed limit is 70 and I know I was going somewhat over it and Dave flew by me and told me later he got up to just over 100 when he passed me. Either way, I just held the camera up, saw the car on the screen and hit the button. I cropped it later to center the car better.

I printed out a row and had this in multi color instead of black & white.
Sorry for the so-so pic but it was a quick thing to do...

Paint the GT black. I can hardly see it.

Thanks for the link. I didn't see this particular thread, but did see his garage photo in another thread.

Honestly, that was my motivation for converting my previous picture to B&W.

Hey, I found out what caused my pic to look like a real artist drawing:

I had some clouds reflecting off the side of the car. that's what gives those wavy lines that look like free-hand penciling.

Here's a before and after of another pic. You can see the difference in what's reflecting off the car (in this pic vs. the one I posted yesterday), and how that affects the outcome.

The pic still looks nice, but it doesn't look free-hand.

Ray must have that constant 'luck' going on! All of his pics look amazing! Guess that's why he gets paid the big bucks.

Was that before or after the video I sent?

Seriously, you have too much time on your hands... j/k, nice first effort.

Thoughts on the AVIC-D3? Looks like it's at home or out of place?

It looks okay. But, I don't really like the trim piece that's needed around the radio to fit in the factory opening. That gives off the "aftermarket" look, not the factory look. Also, I don't like the way all the buttons are on the left side...it makes the screen look offset (Which it is), vs. centered with buttons on each side.

JMO, but overall, it's not too bad. Who's car is that??

It looks about as good as an aftermarket will look in these cars. Until someone makes a humongous unit to fill the huge hole the stock stereo takes up, that trim ring is necessary (I'm talking about stereos guys )

Daryl always sets himself up!

Yeah, the only thing that I don't care for that much is the glossy black outer trim, it's the first thing your eyes go to.

The big plus is that it has a volume ****.
Daryl, do you find yourself missing the ****?
