    Hey everyone, I've got a small favor to ask of you all that won't take more than minute of your time...

    Porsche Canada is running a photography contest to commemorate the launch of the 2015 911 Targa. The best images of unique rooftop design and architecture submitted get 3 days to drive :D and photograph a 911 Targa and a Nikon Df SLR camera.

    Voting is quick, requires no registration or anything special... just a minute to scroll through the gallery and click "Vote". (You can vote once a day I think.)

    Voted. Took me a minute to understand why your were doing this. I only saw 5 images in the gallery because the scroll right button is so transparent. Place your pointer over the right side of the image gallery and click it 8 times. That will bring up Kevin's pic (shown in his post above).

    That said, based on Nick Murray's experience with the new 911, I'd rather not support the brand...

    Porsche finally stepped up, but it took pressure from social media to make them do the right thing...

    Thanks guys.

    In truth Carl, despite my heritage, if I had the means you'd be more likely to find a GTR in my driveway than a 911*. But who could pass up the chance for 3 days, free and clear, in a drop-top Porsche?

    *(More likely still, a stripped out STi, caged, Ohlins suspension, sequential gearbox, anti-lag, etc etc... [​IMG])

    As of today, you'll have to scroll to the right 12 times to see my image. It's not particularly well thought out as there's no way to get a direct link to one particular image. And people that submitted early on are now a long way from being viewed by new visitors. :confused:

    Yep, you can vote daily, and you can also vote from different IPs as well. I tried it the first day after I'd submitted... I was able to vote from the office, and then again with the same computer when I got home.

    I've only done that twice though... I feel guilty voting for myself to begin with.:eek:

    Ahhhhh, remember, your vote is really my intended vote; because their system and mine are not on the same page - not your fault; rather, their faulty code. ;)
