December 11, 2009

The 2009 Goodguys Yearbook cover competition is going great but there’s still time to submit your entry!

Here’s a refresher on the ins and outs of the contest!

Basically we’re looking for great VERTICALLY-formatted (taller than wide) hot rod, custom and muscle car-related photographs. They can be from a Goodguys event, on the road, in the garage, etc. They can be photos of your car, a buddy’s car or just one you thought was cool.

What do you win? How does $250, a year subscription to the Goodguys Gazette, and ten copies of the 2009 Goodguys Yearbook with your photo on the cover sound! Pretty cool, eh?

Dig through your stash of favorite photos or get out there and shoot something.
