SCMC 2008 Calendar

What do y'all think about an SCMC wall calendar for 2008 with photos of SCMC events and member's cars on the calendar. Most likely the standard size like 10x10 with a flip up to make it 10 x 20? I'm getting the pricing now so I cannot give you a figure just yet. Your thoughts??

Update 12-21-07

Front Cover: (15 photos of various SCMC member's Cobras!)

Calendar Photos by Month

January - Phil Saglimbene - 1993 Vibrant Red SVT Mustang Cobra
February - Tony Sorrentino - 1994 Rio Red SVT Cobra Coupe
March - Brian Groth - 1995 Crystal White SVT Mustang Cobra R
April - Tom Sutton - 1996 Mystic SVT Cobra Coupe
May - Tom Crews - 1997 Crystal White SVT Cobra Coupe
June - Steve Childs - 1998 Bright Atlantic Blue SVT Cobra Convertible
July - Pat Madigan - 1999 Rio Red SVT Cobra Convertible
August - Bruce Cameron - 2000 Performance Red SVT Cobra R
September - Ed Burwell - 2001 Laser Red SVT Cobra Convertible
October - Larry Meyer - 2003 Zinc Yellow SVT Cobra Coupe
November - Allan Scott - 2004 Redfire SVT Cobra Coupe
December - Todd Litz - 2007 Black Shelby GT 500 Convertible

Back Cover - Chris Hull - 2004 Torch Red SVT Cobra Coupe

The pricing is as follows:

$25.00 and includes shipping for anyone who wants to buy one. These are limited to 200 calendars so when we run out, we run out!

SCMC Members get a $5.00 discount so their cost will be $20.00 and includes shipping. We're not making a ton of $$ off of these, mostly just enough to cover the cost and my time and energy as well as send some complimentary calendars out to our sponsors who literally gave us thousands of dollars this year. I think they deserve one, don't you?

I've attached a "beta" front cover as this is NOT the cover but one of two samples that were given to me to select. This is the one I did not select so I'm going to post a "highly edited teaser" for you all to look at. You will like the cover and you will like the calendar, that I can assure you. Most of you know I am pretty picky when it comes to stuff like this especially when it involves SCMC and this is why it has taken longer than I thought. I'm posting this so Edmond can host it up in the store (He needed the photo). You will need your SCMC number and to select if you are a member or not in order to get a discount. If your membership is expired, please do not select that you are a member, believe me, I will check to verify your member status and if you are not a member, your transaction will be voided.

There are no discounts for multiple quantity because the cost is too close to offer that. We're ordering 200 calendars, not 2000 so cost is more when you order a small quantity. The 12 inch by 12 inch (Opens to 12 x 24) calendars have a 100 lb cover front and back and high gloss paper inside that you can flip up with a spiral bound top. My sample calendar looks awesome with the exception of three photos I thought needed some more work and some text changes, hence, the hold up.

Total Calendar Production = 200
Calendars Available for Purchase = 128

I think that would be SAAAWEEEET, Tony. Would you have people post up some high resolution pics and then have someone choose the cars? If doing this can I suggest that the minimum size for the picture needed be no less than 1600X1200 pixels for the pictures to be as crisp as possible on the calendar. Maybe you already know this but thought I'd just mention it just in case you didn't. I would hate to have someone post up a pic that looks good on the computer at say 640X480 and then when you try and blow it up it becomes so pixelated that it becomes unusable. Anyways, maybe you already know all this. I would definately be a buyer of one or 2 if you decided to do this!!!!

I think it is a great idea, but how do you choose just 12 cars from a lot of 550+??

I think how most forums that do this is they have about 2 or 3 people either officers or just some people that are randomly picked to vote that year. And you can't have your car in the calendar 2 years in a row. It can be done, it just that people have to understand that obviously not everyone can make it in the calendar for that year and that there is always next year. I don't know how Tony plans on doing it or if he plans on doing it but that is how most do it.

You know my thoughts since we've talked about the idea before, I think it's a great idea. Too bad we probably can't put a picture in the space for each day of the year, that would provide space for more photos but might increase the price.

It would be nice if we could put photos on the days we have events scheduled though (like they did on the 2007 Ford calendar Parkway gave out for holidays and other special days). That would be awesome to be able to have an event picture on those days.

That would be cool too, that way there are more than 12 cars that can be in the calendar. You can also make it a 13 month calendar too.

A very long game of "eeny meenie miney mo?"


I was going to suggest a 47 year calendar but at around $1,175.00 each that might be cost prohibitive.

It would be as follows:

January - 1993 model including R model
February - 1994 model including pace car
March - 1995 model including R model
April - 1996 model
May - 1997 model
June - 1998 model
July - 1999 model
August - 2000 model Cobra R
September - 2001 model
October - 2003 model
November - 2004 model
December - 2007 model

It will be a high res photo for the top half with the calendar portion as the bottom half. Then there will be some inserts with other member's cars in them with their name listed below it. For example, we use Steve Childs' VIR photo for the 1998 model but then have different color shots at different angles for say Rich Riley with his 1998 Chrome Yellow Coupe. We would list Rich's name below the photo of his car. I would even like to see members in some of the photos. I don't think we need to get too complicated for a first year, I'd say whoever has the highest resolution photo with the least amount of background in it or an action shot. So we can have more than 12 photos for the calendar, just that they all won't be the cover page for that month, make sense?

I've already got the idea for the cover and I would like to be able to sell 200 of them if possible??

I know we can list SCMC events on the calendar but I am not sure about the photos as they may add too much to the cost, not sure??? Don't want the first one to be too complicated. I can see some burnout pics from Drag Day, and some car show pics from Parkway, as well as open track pics from VIR or Gingerman. I've got literally thousands of pictures from the past ten years so we shouldn't have a shortage there. As far as submitting samples, I agree with you Chris but if you want to post a "smaller sample" of a high res photo then I think that is the way to go.

It'll also contain stats, production numbers, as well as colors of each model year Cobra/Shelby GT 500. Again, something quick, easy, and can be finished before the first of the year...

I like your idea, Tony. I will buy at least two of them, if not a few more.

Gotta have a redfire for November!


If it works out and we get a good enough response to do it again I would suggest making the 2009 ones early enough that we could offer them for sale at the 2008 Parkway show. Mabye even have an '08 calendar on display at VIR next year (and other events prior to Parkway) for people to view and place advance orders for the 2009 calendar.
