Just a reminder everyone I want to get a member ride on the homepage for January and time is running out. So if you haven't submitted your details.

http://www.viczcar.c...ubmit-your-ride

Before submitting I suggest writing everything in a word doc so you don't loose the information if there is a form submission error. If you have problems with the form please let me know.

Alternatively if you want to just email me the details and I can put it together in a formal format for you I'm happy to do that. Be sure to include a few high quality photos and describe any major modifications you have made.

Its summer, so that means I'm spending my time working on boats and water skiing and wakeboarding. So little time to work on the car, I'll fill the form out when i get a chance, but I'll need some new pics too.

Cool, if I was you I'd be doing the same thing mate. I miss Australian Summers and the beach. We just had a blizzard in Dublin ;).

I'm trying to get 1 new ride on the homepage each month. So I keep bumping to topic to keep it at the top of people's minds.

So a small update. Some may have noticed I have been making changes to the Member Rides section of the site.

Most are template changes, when I moved from our last content management system it was easier at the time to just have 1 image per featured ride. Now its possible to have an unlimited (but I stick to 6 for now).

I haven't finished converting all member rides to the new format, but the ones I've done so far exist under this URL:

http://www.viczcar.com/member-rides

Which is alot friendly than the older:
http://www.viczcar.c...axonomy/term/11

I've got the process down to a point where its pretty straight forward to publish a new member ride on the site.

The most time consuming part of this process is getting content. That is getting you guys to send me details and photos ;). I have a car lined up for February, but don't let that put you off submitting details. I'd rather have to catch up with all your submissions than chase you guys up ;).

Thanks and hope you enjoy member rides.

It's that time again and I'm looking for a new front page car for this month of March.

If you don't know what to write or need some ideas here are some questions you could answer:

1. Why choose a Z, when you can get a cheap import with 300 ba-jillion horsepower so cheaply?
2. How did you find your Z? Did you look at a few lemons before finding the right Z?
3. After getting your Z, what was the first thing you wanted to change?
4. What has been your vision for your Z? Was there a particular car that helped you decide on the right look?
5. What do you enjoy most about owning a Z?
6. What's the funniest thing that's happened to you since owning your Z?
7. What annoys you most about owning a Z?
8. What / who has been the biggest help? Anyone you want to thank?
9. Future plans? What would you do if money was no object?
10. Any advice for people in the market looking for a Z? What would you do differently (if anything)?
11. Total investment so far? You don't have to disclose, you can say none of your business or more than X amount etc...

Then you could just send along a list of modifications you have made and a few photos and I'll do all the rest.

Feel free to add anything else that's relevant or I haven't thought of..

I do plan on sending details of my car, but I need to take some nice pics.
Which means it needs to be running, my car spends more time up on jack stands while I'm working on it than ready to drive.
The gearbox should be finished and in this weekend, so we're getting closer.  ;D

Is this Cuong in Western Australia with the RB26DETT conversion? I believe I got in contact with him a while back, but the car wasn't on the road. Wouldn't hurt to follow up with him again though.

I had a couple of submissions recently I need to follow them up though. I've been busy / lazy. We do need a new car on the homepage though.

Just a reminder.. we haven't had a front page update in a while. I have 1 article in the words and is almost ready to go out, but would be good to have a couple of others to work with and get posted out there.

I apologise we haven't had a new car on the homepage for a bit, but I got caught up with work and was on holiday for a couple of weeks there.

Hi,

Just a suggestion. Since we know about rev's good work, how about his latest resto (260 2 seater), that's if it hasn't been sold yet. Would be really interesting and an inspiration to new members and current ones. Thats is if Rev agrees to it ofcourse. Sorry if im dobbing you in Rev, just recognising your hard work.  8)

Just finished the latest feature car:
http://www.viczcar.c...lime-green-240z

With video to follow soon.

I have another article in progress - pending updates from the current owner, however due to work and other commitments I've had very little time to update these lately. Would like to get some more cars lined up and featured on the homepage so if anyone is interested feel free to get in touch.

Hi there mate,
Yes definitely still looking for feature cars and it's about time I updated the homepage. I usually select 6 photos (because that's how many have been used in previous features). However I might be able to squeeze more in - I just have to check I haven't hard coded the number of photos to be included.

Your car looks immaculate so would be very happy to have it grace our front page. I have a form for submitting car details, but if you prefer to just email the details I can give you my email address.
