What do YOU think???

By Tinkerbell

When I first posted my Dad's '67 Corvette in my garage, I made it clear that I wasn't going to be sending out any challenges with it because the car was destroyed in a house fire about 15 years ago. Not only that, but the car in the picture isn't even the actual car but a picture of one that looks alot like it - same year and color, same wheels and sidepipes. Over the past couple of weeks, I've been messaged by several people saying I SHOULD send challenges with it as a tribute to the car and to my Dad. I'm undecided now, so... What do YOU think I should do???

I say go for it !! I have challenged people with my model cars. I also use a car I used to own. So what is the harm?? I see none. As long as it is not some person saying they own or owned it when in fact they never had anything to do with the car they use. If people don't like it they don't have to accept the challenge !! That's the bottom line !!

I'd do a couple of challenges as a tribute to you dad. Babe is my direct connection to my Dad-her original owner-, so I'd go for it.

Your up front about it, I don't see any harm in doing so. I have not done a challenge, but have voted on some. So not sure my vote counts

I have seen challenges with a real car against a model car, so anything goes apparently. The truth is written about the car. I lost my dad the day after Father's day 2007 and ANYTHING I can do that makes me think of him or smile because of him or ANYTHING about him, I would want to do it and keep his memory fresh and alive in my mind and anyone else's that knew him and even what people missed that didn't know him. Do what makes you happy.

I have to say no, because I gave someone else a hard time for entering challenges with a picture of a car that wasn't theres but said "this is what my car looks like".

Sorry.

So far it seems to be 11 1/2 FOR compared to 1 1/2 AGAINST (CorvairJim "split" his vote!). As of now, I'm seriously considering it. Thanks to all of you for your input. I'm still listening so if you haven't "voted" yet, let me know!
