    I like the idea. My suggestion is to use the ROTM winner's as the featured truck. I would use the winners from the previous years in the month in which they won. It was already put to a vote for each month once I don't see a reason to do it again. I also like the idea of using the other trucks from the month as smaller pics because more people would buy them if their ride was in the calender.
    I like the size Surreal suggested.
    Price sounds fair also. I would buy one.

    I guess my thought on voting again was there are more than one ROTM winners for each month given how many years ROTM has been in existence. If only one truck is featured for each month which year January should be used? If we only use 2012's trucks any previous years ROTM winners will never be featured. But I also see the confusion another vote could create also. Not sure of the right answer here.

    I like the idea, but not sure how the final product will look ( see below).

    • Most of the pictures we upload here fall really short of the quality needed for pre press or printing in general, so you would need a way to get something like a 5mb jpg (at least for the main photo's) or the photo's will look horrible when printed
    • I like the idea of the ROTM to be the main photo and then have other members photo's frame it in, much smaller in size (maybe 5-8 smaller photo's around the ROTM photo).
    • The ROTM Photo should have a blurb on teh corresponding calendar below it listing the make, model, year and mods that it has (when that photo was taken). Not what they have now, if that is not what is in the picture.
    • The Owners names and locations should be left out of any descriptions unless there is some sort of credits page inside the front cover or rear cover of the calendar.
    • I agree with a standard calendar size and going with 12 months.
    • $14.99 is on the expensive side for the average calendar, but this is a custom printed calendar, so a slightly higher price is to be expected.
    • There should not be any "people" in the photo's unless a release form as been signed so no one gets angry and tries to sue anyone.

    ^ What they all said. I'm not sure of a "right" answer either as to how one's truck gets in the calendar. I like the ROTM and the runners up idea, but like said, what year(s) would you have to chose from.

    I would definately buy one

    Yeah, no worries we'll have high quality and good looking photos when we go to print these.

    im a fan of this, id buy one for 15, even 20.

    maybe have a large center photo with ROTM trucks with specs, and have smaller pics of similar trucks around it, or maybe have some small 2x2 pics in the corners of the page on the bottom in the blank areas, by that I mean were the the month ends, I.E. its the 30th, and there are a few blank spots due to the alignment of the weeks, if any of that makes any sort of sense.

    I agree with using up the empty day spaces in the beginning and end of the month for pics too. No sense of having blank spots. I guess depending on how many photos are submitted may dictate how many spots are needed.

    Any chance you could get site vendors/sponsors to commit to certain days on the calender with special sales for certain days? i.e. say September 13th 2013 Adams Polishes could offer a special on detailing wax.
    I know its a long ways out for most of them but it could be good advertisement getting their names and products out to the public.

    That's a really, really cool idea, as it gets the vendors involved and may help them drive sales.

    I realize some/most people may not post ideas here, but I hope there is enough interest (members and/or sponsors) to make this happen. This is a great Idea for anyone to feature their own truck. Only a little over 3 months to get it all together.
