Truck Contests/Online Shows NEXT ONE!!!

What I would like to see happen, and this is after considerable thought about it - is for the next one to be JUST FOR Ford Trucks owned outside of the 50 States (continental USA and Hawaii).

It would have as the beginning an open thread for all willing contestants to post pictures of their trucks, will be pared down to ten for the finals in a semi final "PICK TEN OF THE ABOVE" venue, and have a final poll at the end of it (which is why it needs to have only ten in the finals).

You can be from ANYPLACE ON EARTH in other words, but not the USA in order to qualify. I foresee it running about three months, unless there are too few entries - in the which case it may be extended to fill out the field of entries. You may have any year or model of ford truck, in any condition or state of modification. It can be a European Ford, such a Thames - or an Australian Ford such as a Falcon UTE. I really think older trucks may have an advantage here...

It would be a good thing to upload pictures of your project to a gallery at FTE so that the pictures are easy to link and so that your picture gallery can be linked to and shown.

THIS IS THE IDEA THREAD - I am proposing it here, not beginning it just yet.

My reasoning is that most of what we see in the USA is the common run of trucks that we are used to, and the wide variety in the rest of the world are something many people never ever see or become aware of.

Now is the time to throw in any feedback or ideas to make it that much better - so now I open it to your thoughts and comments, please.


CHEERS!

*Oh by the way - the past several shows/contests have had as a first place prize a free one year subscription to FTE as a supporter. This makes the members only area and several other features available.

Our last and most recent contest turned out like this:

Antique and Classic's for 2008

It is about time we looked offshore...

I will allow no other contests to take place in my name until this one is successful.

We need this one, in order to tell the whole story.

I reckon we're going to do this then. I've checked with Adrian, and the show/contest will be hosted here in this chapter forum. I expect my next task will be to launch it, and hope we get some entries....

Well, mine is pretty much american style, so there won't be any surprises coming from my side. You have my support (and entry) if this becomes real.

I'm backing away from any such contests for now - I have to ask myself why I let it become such a big deal in my mind that I recently became an overbearing lout online (admittedly)

I let it drive me into a panic, when I should have know better. When a thing like that happens it's obvious that something needs to change, so I'm leaving it all in younger and creative hands.

I know that - and we don't go anywhere without trouble and disappointment.

But I have not stopped or stood still - because I have enough MACHO to realise that all is not DONE HERE!


I have my own "EVIDENCE OF WHO I AM" to carry me no matter what may happen, it is only a matter of comportment, and style.

SE COMPRENDE?


Anyone can survive a misfortune if they will it....


Still: I do not think a misfortune has happened.


Only a learning event.....

Matter of fact I'm working straight away ahead on "JAVA" usage on the forums - they do pretty cool things!

Run your mouse pointer over this:

(DO NOT HAVE A MOUTHFUL OF BEER OR ALE WHEN YOU DO THAT)
Someone I know already decorated his monitor with a drink when I showed him it just this way...

<applet code="PoolMenu" CODEBASE=http://greywolf.clubfte.com width=586 height=459>
<param name=image value=http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/picture.php?albumid=2171&pictureid=10038>
</applet>
It isn't supposed to DO THAT, is it?

"Any sufficiently developed technology is indestinguishable from "MAGIC"
(Isn't it so?)


* Yeah: "My God - what have I done?"

I'm exploring how I can use all the things I used to know online this weekend. Old tool boxes, not opened for some time.

I also need to get "UP TO DATE" somehow - an old Gent like me needs to once in a while....


I CANNOT BE BOUND TO A MANAGER POSITION IF I HOPE TO EXPLORE ALL OF THESE THINGS

THAT was the reason I gave up running the "CONTESTS"

They were a done fact, but I am an explorer


What else can we do?
I can serve best by exploring those options....
Es verdad?


I am the WOLF - I will go and look at everything I can find
I smell a new trail... Do you?

I care about everyone here

God bless everyone and all of their families who come here - may we all make one another BETTER for having known ourselves as true PEOPLE
