Default Everybody knows about the vbGarage, RIGHT!!!

With over 1200 members, we should have more than 22 entries in the Garage... some of them don't even have pictures!!!
Everybody also knows about the windows picture resizer, RIGHT!!! It's easy to use. Just download the program, and whenever you R-click on a photo, one of the options in there, along with cut/paste/delete/etc... is RESIZE PICTURE! Most of the pictures from my 3mp Sony cybershot turn into .07mb files in the MEDIUM setting in the resizer. PERFECT FOR CLEAR DETAILED INTERNET POSTING!

Philip explains it all here: https://www.miataturbo.net/forums/showthread.php?t=4325

Everybody should go take some pictures and post them:
1: 1 photo of the overall outside of the car, taken from about 15feet away (no stupid magazine crazy angle closeups of just the fender). How many times do you open a car magazine expecting to see a beautiful car an all you get are closeups of the rotors and shift ****. Just one nice photo where we can see the whole car.

2: Engine bay. Get as close as you can while still getting the whole engine in the picture. People need to be able to pick out how you've routed lines and mounted things. This is mostly DIY after all.

3/4/5/etc: Your choice (now you can take closeups, highlighting things that might be special about your Miata or something you're proud of. I love my rollbar and Borla Duals. Maybe your IC setup is different, or your interior is bling-bling.

Don't forget the writeup. Some things to include (in addition to all your parts) are overall $$ spent, dyno performance and local Tuner, future plans.

DO IT, DO IT NOW!

Hey do we have to clean our cars?
I'm not the greatest at maintaining exterior/interiors--2 kids add up to a lot of french fries...

I'm really happy to see the growing vbGarage. A digital camera and that image resizer and life is good. I'm using it to post images on a couple more forums I frequent that I never could before. Keep those entries coming... we'll knock out a good collection yet!
