Header Update Contest CLOSED
This contest has now ended. If you really think your photos deserve to be submitted, PM ME THEM ASAP!

There is a chance they may still be entered. I really want to see gen 1, 2, and 5 please! Please don't PM me a Gen 4 as I will not submit it. Looking for gen 1/2 sables as well.
A skin and header update is coming soon please help us!



This is a contest for any member who wishes to submit any picture of their car, someone else's car, or any picture they find on the internet.

Of course it must be a TAURUS or SABLE. ALL generations are welcome and needed! Although most pictures posted will probably be gen 4, we need ALL generations! Gen 4 will have the most competition because there can only be one or maybe two of them included!

The pictures will be all taken and the creative team over at autoguide will choose the ones that will work best in the header of the website! Your car could be put in the header! Keep in mind that they may choose to use some of the pictures currently there and that you will ALWAYS be able to revert to the old skin when the new one has been posted!

There is a possibility that we may put different headers on different forums. For instance, the Gen 1-4 forums will ONLY have Gen 1-4 Tauruses and Sables. The Gen 5 and 6 forum will ONLY have gen 5 and 6 Tauruses and Sables.


-Background of the picture does not matter, keep in mind that your car will be cut out and windows probably blacked out. Check out the photo above to compare what your car will be cut to look like.

-NO, the administrator, mods, nor users will be able to pick the new color scheme of the website OR the photos posted here. The creative team will be the only people picking both. The administrator may make a recommendation, but the creative team has final say. I also don't know if they will pick any sables, no matter how much I want them to - worth a try posting sable pic's though!

-The new skin will come in light and dark, and the old skin will still be available for use! Skin switcher is at the bottom left of the forum.

-"Coming Soon" really doesn't mean soon. I have NO idea what the time frame will be for this, it could be months, however start posting your pictures soon! Pictures can be attachments or [IMG] style.

-If you decide to photoshop your picture before submitting it, that is fine, but keep in mind don't adjust lighting or make the background dark, etc. The only thing you should be editing are blemishes, etc out of your photo.

POST YOUR PICTURES! Please don't take someone else's work as your own! If you find a picture on the internet, please give credit! We can't be posting pictures in our header without permission! By posting a picture of your car in this thread you consent that we may use it on the header of the forum! We REALLY need gen 1-3 and 5 cars! 4 and 6 are in abundance! We especially need gen 5 Tauruses and Sables!

PLEASE remember that your car will probably ONLY be picked if the quality of your pictures is EXCELLENT. No blurry pictures, no dirty cars, no poor lighting or quality. Photoshop is being used, but the better you make your picture look, the higher likeliness it will be picked!

I kinda like what we have to tell you the truth.... but...

Hmm let me find some good ones.... if any of mine get chosen, contact me and I can email the original file with better resolution

I WANNA WIN!! :P Ha so I am going to try to post lots of *slightly different* angles... MORE TO COME! :)


Josh and I will get some better pics.. but I still love this one

Sam 11-16-2012 12:14 AM

Go to bed paul! JK! haha, well I just added above that they may actually use some of the current pictures there... just know they will be photoshopped PLENTY.

I like the last one of just your bull. Yes, many different angles = better chance at winning. More you post, better your chances :P

The creative team is going to pick what "looks best" with whatever new colors the decide to pick!

If you could get a picture of more than one generation together.... that would have a good chance I think!

TaurusDailyDriver 11-16-2012 12:45 AM

Ha no bed for Paul yet! Thanks for the compliment. I am gonna give the bull another good cleaning and duplicate that shot with no front license plate.

I am gonna flood this thread out! Haha

Agreed, their cars are pretty darn sharp!

Sam 11-16-2012 10:25 AM

+100 on that!

Except it's out of my control unfortunately, however I think bpd for sure will be featured. Only time will tell though!

administrator 11-16-2012 10:28 AM
