Hey guys, I submitted pics for April Fools day, but they didn't get posted for some reason.  Not too sure why, but I promise, I sent them in.  Here they are.

it takes a lot of work ( and $ ) to make those cars look that bad. You take those same cars (prior to the mods) park them in a garage for 30 years I bet they would hold there value a ton better.

I agree they must handle horribly...but as the saying by Fernando goes...it is better to look good than to drive good.  If you like, here is a video of one of the Camaros like this that has the spinner wheels that don't spin, and as the car is driving down the road, it looks like it is being dragged.  Kinda gives a new meaning to "drag Camaro".

That has to be the worst blasphemy I've ever seen foisted on a Camaro body. We need to track this person down and have him examined for some fearsome mental disorder -

Steve,
You need to send them earlier than the day before.
Can you please send the pics at least a week ahead? Thanks!

Kurt,

From what I understand, the pics were received in time by the person who posts the pics for the homepage.  However, due to the deviation from what has been the standard monthly photo submission, he was unsure if he should post them and chose to wait for your approval first.  I have been submitting photos within this same time-frame manner for over ten years, with no problems until now.  I was not made aware of this added layer of beaurcracy and the need of a reveiw of the submissions prior to their being posted, as again, it has never been an issue before now.  From now on, I will make an effort to submit time-sensative photos submissions in a more timely manner.   

If you would like to discuss this further, I can only suggest that the open forum may not be the best place to address this matter.

Steve
