    Lightbulb New Contests & Features

    One suggestion that I received last night was a contest or promotion that features the best "project" or "build".

    One way of doing it could be by having people tell us about how they transformed their "Barn Find" into a "Showroom Ride" backed by pictures and/or video of the before, during and after shots.

    I personally like the idea. What do you guys think?

    What do you feel would be good rules/conditions and good prizes?

    :confused:

    also another idea is to find out what someone is doing to help keep the car hobby alive .
    if its running carshows or helping out a fellow rodder wrench on his toy.
    or teaching the hobby to someone.
    of course this has to be backed up with photos etc.
    If ya think about it most aftermarket would not be here if it wasnt for the automotive hobbist.
    Gold eagle probly would not exsist either.

    Very true!

    Maybe that can be combined with something else I'd like to do which is to feature a different Cool Rides member every week or every other week and post it as our featured blog or even create a new page for it. The feature, in my mind, would be set up as a Q&A asking about how they got involved in the hobby, about their rides, what they're up to, etc. Eventually, if the site takes off the way we hope it does, we could have the best interview or interviews printed on a popular magazine instead of an ad for the site.

    Is it just me or is brainstorming always fun?

    I like this idea.
    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.

    How can 4 people actually believe that before & after pics are boring?

    If you are one of those 4, please elaborate. :confused:

    I love project posts. On the Mower site, Heymow, the builds are the best part of the site!
