The calendar is great...only one new generation Pontiac!:lol:

Can i make a request for a 13 month calendar next year? By the time I receive the Dec 2016 to Nov 2017 calendar, Half the month of December will be over. Plus it will allow for one more car in the calendar!

edit: ok I just ordered and noticed you can choose your starting and ending month. I still think a 13 month calendar would be cool...

Couldn't help but notice many of the pic's were cut off and not showing the entire cars.  Is this JUSTA the preview or is this the finished product?

This is the finished product. I am limited by what is provided as an image. Some are great and I am able to display what is needed for the size requirements. Others are centered and close to the car where a full bleed is not possible without cutting off part of the car.

Got an idea for 2018... Pull out the FP  credit card and fly to all the winners homes and take the pictures yourself. That way it will ensure that all pictures are the same and 13 lucky winners will get to meet The FP Fearless Leader himself! :indian:

Got my calendar yesterday as a Christmas gift from my wife and have to say I was very disappointed in the changes made to my picture. It seems that all the "branding" was removed via Photoshop or some similar tool. The GTO emblem in the grille was replaced with a rough white line, The Pontiac arrowhead was removed from the hood and the tire brand was smeared on the right front tire. While I appreciate the license plate being removed, the front bumper looks mangled now.  I noticed other pictures updated as well.

C&Ks GTO - Removed GTO in the grille and cropped the rear of the car.

Diana George KyDon - Removed "Firebird" from the right front fender.

wtjosaas - Removed "Firebird" from the left front fender.

FredZeppelin - Removed white letters from tires, at least for the last picture I saw of his car.

Those are the issues I observed.

Just need to know what is acceptable and what is not so we can take appropriate pictures going forward.

A lot of the branding unfortunately needs to be removed for sale. We try to keep as much as possible that our vendor will allow per our licensing. We'll note that moving forward and state that outgoing. Thank you for the feedback. 

This was a new vendor that we used this year. Are there any quality issues with the printing or paper that you don't like?

Opened mine today.  Really not impressed that they can't size a picture to fit their page, but will take the time to Hack up Ricks photo and any others they messed with, that's out of bounds.  Hope we can find a better vendor for 2017.  Ringo, we do appreciate your efforts to make this happen every year, and it's truly an honor to be a part of the FP calendar.  My opinion....This vendor made a mockery of our top 12 cars.

It does appear our December GTO suffered a wheel/rim meltdown in attempts to "burn-out" Goodrich--whereas it was perfectly clear in other pix. We can also see the obvious bumper distortion where license plate was ripped-off. The removal of certain names/logos appears inconsistent.  That being said, it appears my pix (58 Bonneville--August) escaped any mods, which I'm thankful for.

Ringo, you should hold-out for a final proof-copy before authorizing final publication ...seriously appreciating your HUGE efforts though.

Didn't mean to sound unappreciative for RIngo's work to coordinate all of this, just offering feedback for what I perceived as actions by the new calendar vendor. As mentioned earlier, we just need to know the rules so we can take them into consideration while taking the pictures. My daughter is a professional graphics artist and could have taken care of the changes required for my picture had we known. No one would have been able to tell she made any changes.

Certainly appreciate the feedback guys. We try and find vendors who will work with us and not skyrocket the price so that the calendar remains reasonable. Unfortunately, that does mean there might be some "gotchas." I'll start researching earlier for 2017 to see how we can improve quality but keep pricing reasonable. 

Just this year, our previous vendor sent me into a tailspin (like literally the day of sending out the email) due to a decision on their part that made me scramble for another vendor.

      As excitement fills the air, Round 2 of our 2020 Forever Pontiac Calendar Contest is here and we're ready to see what our calendar is going to look like! In our 10th year of existence, it is nice to see so many great Pontiacs in one place and we truly enjoy watching this process unfold. We know you're all excited to get to voting so we won't bore you too much.
      Round 2 will move forward in the same fashion as Round 1,  you will need to select one (1) individual that you like the best as the winner of that grouping. The individual with the most votes at the end of the round moves on to be in the calendar. Let's get started!
      Please be advised: we are monitoring the use of voting and watching closely. Those who solicit individuals to make multiple accounts or make fake accounts to move votes in favor of themselves will be removed from the contest. We want this to be an FP calendar for Pontiac lovers, voted by Pontiac lovers. Any questions, please let us know! Thank you for your cooperation.

      After another consecutive year of record turnouts, we're extremely excited to start our first voting round of the 2020 Forever Pontiac calendar! You'll notice that the models with a large turn out are going against each other, such as Firebirds, GTOs. Our aim is to give a little diversity to the calendar this year and give a fighting chance to all involved 
      Please note that for the first round of voting if you have 10 posts or more you have automatically gotten a pass to the second round as a thank you for being an active member. 
      We will be taking the top 2 or 3 (ties, number of people, and other factors are considered) individuals from each group and they will move into the 2nd round! 
      Voting will run till Tuesday, October 22, 2019 11:59 PM ET
      Round 2 will start Thursday, October 24, 2019
      The way voting works is there will be groups of members and out of that group you will need to select one (1) individual that you like the best as the winner for that group. The individual with the most votes at the end of the round moves on to the next round out of that group. Let's get started!
      Please be advised: we are monitoring the use of voting and watching closely. Those who solicit individuals to make accounts, multiple accounts or make fake accounts to move votes in favor of themselves will be removed from the contest. We want this to be an FP calendar for Pontiac lovers, voted by Pontiac lovers. Any questions, please let us know! Thank you for cooperation.
