Well done, Josh.

And proof to those that say only 170's win, only silver wins.
Oh, hang on...280 R171? And red you say?
Two more myths bite the dust.


Every car has a shot at winning.

Well, there's a surprise! Thanks to everyone who voted for my SLK - all that cleaning and polishing that's been amusing the neighbours for so long has been worth it after all. Being a new member and never entered before I had no expectations of winning at my first attempt . . . so, what am I going to do with all the pics I have in reserve for the next few months' competitions . . . Thanks again folks.

I think all ROTM pictures should be cropped by mods to only show the car ... maybe it would've won anyway, maybe not. I didn't look at the others or vote this month, but it's often the best background which wins.

If you don't vote you cannot influence the outcome.


However, back to topic: ie Congratulations to the winner of June's competition.

That photo was taken in Glenshee heading towards Braemar, at the start of May this year. It was freezing cold but I was nice and snug inside the SLK. A lot of our Scottish glens look like that though.
