March 2018 Ride of the Month Nominations are now open!


Post by xr7g428 » 22 Feb 2018, 19:16

Please make an effort to let the nominees know they have been nominated and if possible make sure they are interested in participating.


This thread is where you will put nominations for the
March 2018 Ride of the Month!

All you need to do is to identify the car and the owner. A picture of the car would be helpful if you can locate one.

As a reminder, here is how it works:

You can nominate any Cougar, even your own. All nominations must be seconded.

We will nominate cars until the 25th of the month, then vote from the 25th to the 1st of the following month, and announce the winner.

A new thread honoring the winner will go up just as quickly afterwards as possible. Then we start all over again.

The winning car will be pictured at the top of the Forums header for the month.
