This is a bit off the wall guys but please bear with me.....I hope it's gonna work...  :hope:

Objective: Just a bit of festive fun folks....a game/ competition.....  :wavetowel2:  
Incentive: Apart from the obvious kudos of winning such a ground-breaking contest, there will be a prize...but I'm not quite sure what yet..  :icon_scratch:   :lamende:   ....oh go on then, there'll be a (small!) runner's up prize as well!!   :rolleyes:

The Game:  Essentially the format is similar in form an 'Advent Calendar' and will run for the 25 days up until Christmas....

Every day (in line with UK time) I will post a snippet of a photo of one of the models in my collection....they shouldn't be too obscure.... and you'll probably get them straight off....

...but if you're really stuck,  the full list can be seen here on my profile page ...- to help you choose..  :wavetowel2:



The Rules:.....the first person of the day to post the correct answer of what it is will get 3 points, the second  person of the day (NB it wlll also be the same answer) will get 2 points, and the 3rd person will get one point...(NB once 3 people have got it right no more count for that day!)

** the answer should be in '3M' format....i.e.  Manufacturer, Marque and Model...**

I'll (try to!  :rolleyes: ) keep the scoreboard below updated.......and the person (and runner up!) who has the highest number of points by Christmas day will be pronounced the winners...and their 'prize(s)' will be in the first post after Boxing day.....  :wavetowel2:

incidentally any answers posted after the next successive picture has been posted will not count....

Get the idea? I'm sure you'll soon get the hang of it, and we've got plenty of days to make up the points..... :nice:





So as it's now December 1st over here in Briny, it's time to start the 'Calendar' so here's an easy peasy recently posted first pic....

Attached File  ADVENTCAL01jpg (Small).JPG   54.32K   3 downloads

and MY GUESS is that it's my Highway61, Pontiac GTO, Arnie Beswick Dragster.....for which I get 3 points..!  :clap:



So that means I'm in the lead at the moment folks!!  :wavetowel2:

Now who's the person that's going to jump in and get the remaining points for today??  - REMEMBER YOU CAN GIVE THE SAME ANSWER IF IT'S THE RIGHT ONE!!  :hope:
