My white '64 GTO was in a few years ago. I'm not sure of the date, but here's the link:

By the time the story appeared, I had blown the engine. I sold what was left to a friend amd I'm currently building a '63 Tempest tube chassis car that should go a whole lot faster.

Car magazines welcome and are always asking for submissions, anything from full features to silly burn-out photos. Sections like Readers Rides, Hometown Hot Rodding, etc are a good place to start. In High Performance Pontiac magazine one of the best places for submission is the "My Pontiac and Me" section.

One of the most important things to remember is the quality of the photograph submitted. You don't want a cluttered background. Choose something appropriate, example a blue car doesn't look good photographed on a green grass background. From time-to-time the magazines publish articles showing some of the tricks they use in making good car photos, go to the various magazine websites and do a search to see if they have reprints of these articles. I know Popular Hot Rodding is good about this.

With my Wagoneer, i had it posted up at Cardomain, and "Collectible Automobile" magazine was researching for an article on the history of the Wagoneer, and e-mailed asking for pics of it, so i went down to the river, and took some cool pics on the hills with the water in the background.

The story on Kenny's '63 SD should be one of my all time favorites. My first issue of HPP was August, 1981.

How's this? It would be better with more sunlight though. I take ok pics. You can
see all 4 tires also. I read that's what magazines like.

Your correct about the number of tires in view.

Next time try fill in flash. Or a friend out of the picture holding a large sheet of cardboard covered in tin foil that can direct refected light into the dark shaded areas can help.

When taking photos of your cars remember photos taken out in full sunlight is not always a good thing. It can create harsh shadows.

Photographers often find that pictures taken in what's commonaly called "open shade " can be more pleasing. A over cast day will accomplish the same thing. Remember this when you take those family photos.... get them out of the direct full sun into "open shade".

And watch for tree branches or a telephone pole in the background that appear to stick out of heads !

Yep, Ryan, just before dark works well, and the biggest thing i see is that your pic is in a driveway with cars, fence, etc. in the background.

Try going out to a country road with nothing but trees, etc. in the background.

OR - in your area, a just before dark pic in the hills around reno with the lit up casinos in the background.

Basically some kind of scenery. I'm kinda lucky because i have an orchard accross the street from my house as seen in my sig, and several orchards all over close to me. Maybe a desert mountain view behind your grean car.

After you do that heat those tires up and have some pictures taken of the car hanging the 2 front wheels in the air
