Only if you can provide me with the high resolution original. cool

Isn't that what is at the top of the page.

No different than Mary's pic of his / her birthday cake.

Yeah if Sally's cake gets in with that resolution i want in too. She shouldn't get special treatment gripe

No, that image is 72ppi screen res, not fit for printing.

This is why I asked Ilan to find and keep the high-res version for the calendar...

Ilan gets special treatment because he actually took his picture, and can prove it with a high-res image.

What is wrong with you people.

Have I entered the Twilight Zone, or what. This all way to bizarre for me, sorry.

It's not bizarre, it's just the reality that you can't print screen-res images on paper and have it look good. Forgive me for wanting our calendar to look nice.

The full size image is 2832 X 2128 pixels. If I posted an image that size on this forum, half of all your computers would explode. I'm nice like that.

Got my last round of pics today before delivering the car. It's been one hell of a ride, and the buyers are true Buick fanatics. I forget what years exactly but they have a '37, a '49, a '50-something, and a '23 Buick. They also have a '92 Riv, a '95 Roadmaster, and my '95 Riv now.

Lots of reasons for the haircut(did that in December), but I like it much better this way.


To everyone doubting my love for the Riviera, my Riviera, and all the history behind that (-R-) marque: if I didn't love my car then would I have taken a picture of it like this?

almost any camera now days can take pictures like that, just use macro mode. judging by the quality it seems like a point and shoot.

It's just a point and shoot Kodak V610, but I loved this car so much that I decided to go out and look for the best angles to take pictures of it. Don't question for a second that I was dedicated to that car.

(But in my defense, I liked the long hair...)

The Honda won't get anything but a window tint and a clutch in a few years. Possibly black bezel OEM headlights but that's all.

The Riv is a much prettier car, but the Honda has nice clean lines. It's not overdone like today's Japanese cars, and it's not boring like earlier ones(or any Toyota ever made). It's at the sweet spot in the middle where, just like the Riv, the design will look clean and new 15 years later.

I didn't compare them. I said the Buick is much prettier and the Honda has clean lines.
