    I stopped by a friend's place on the way to the DMV and he heard my car was in a local auto parts store's calendar.
    The thought of that lessened the dread of dealing with the DMV & the store was on the way so I stopped in to see if it was true and get a couple only to find out "Oh! Those sold out in a hurry, sorry".
    On the way home I begged one off a shop and it was true so I at least have a wrinkly one.
    I think it may be OCTOBER all year at my house:thumbsup:

          Nope.
          That picture was taken many years ago at a high school fund-raiser car show.
          The give away is my molting sheepskin seat covers.
          Don't think anyone else would do that on purpose...:D

            I have one picture of the shoot from the photographer. I'll dig it out in a bit.

              You give a guy permission once, and they'll use it for eternity.

              I have seen my old GTX pop up a few times without permission expressly from me.....shit happens, and there's not a lot you can do about it.
              I did a shoot with my A100 just before Christmas, and it was for a friend of a friend for his body-building profile on FB. It was to advertise his profile for an up-coming competition in Australia. My worst fears are that the pics will end up on some gay porn site eventually.
              All those guys covered in oil and flexing their biceps.

              I won't post any pics with the guy.....but if you search FB for body building competition.....I'm sure my truck will pop up somewhere.

                    That’s one of the biggest honors you can have, to have one or more of your cars on a calendar especially when the calendar is being sold to benefit something good.

                      The calendar is selling car/truck parts but the picture was taken at a fundraiser.
                      Car & truck parts are good too!

                                That photographer Ron Kimball took photos of the Purple 1971 Hemi GTX that i owned for 28 years, in the hills behind Ohlone College, Freemont, California at one of the Mopar car shows that were held at the college parking lots.
                                It's still showing up on calendars after all these years, and now with 3 different owners that i know of.
                                It's in a 2022 calendar, but the car photo itself is photo cropped onto a different background picture.
                                Seen the car on at least 3 different backgrounds.
                                Your car can still show up on calendars many years down the road from now.

                                WOW, went thru lots of pages of his work in his photo album.
                                Got to page 17, and low and behold, a picture of the purple 71 Hemi GTX, with that background that i mentioned.
