OK guys, some of you asked for it so here we go again!
It is time for the ScionLife Photo Rally Contest Version 2.0! This month's contest is a photo rally... kind of a scavenger hunt and a photo contest in one. You will find a short list of items below. To complete the rally you will have to find each of those items, photograph them and present them here. Important: in each photo graph you will have to show some type of identifying mark to prove that you took the photo and didn't just find it on the internet! (a ring, a penny, a stamp, etc) Of the completed contestants one will be chosen by me to be the month's winner, or if no one completes the contest then the member with the most matching photos will win. I will judge photos based on originality and creativity. Use your imagination people!
To participate just start a new thread in the Off-Topic area titled:
'Photo Rally Competition: MyScreenName' (put your own screen name at the end!)
Post your photos as you take them. When you have finished the list then edit your first post's subject line to indicate:
'Photo Rally Competition: MyScreenName FINISHED'

24- thats freaking easy! ill have that by the end of the day if i go driving tonite :rofl:
8- Does it have to be a squirrel, or can it be Brad? :rofl:
Anyway, I did the contest once and it was fun, but I dont think im game for another. Off topic, but do you think we could do a best Scion pumpkin carving contest as a side note? Maybe for some SL stickers? Just a thought.
Good luck to all that enter this time.
10-03-2005, 08:29 PM
Let me get this straight... If I get 23 good shots, there's no way I will win against 24 or 25 shots, no matter the skill?
For instance... #15, I will not have lots of people putting their greasy mitts on my windows.
and #22, That's just wrong.
10-03-2005, 08:42 PM
i like these requirements, they're a lot more-edgy than the last one. Wasn't no. 9: child doing a handstand on the last photo hunt?
10-03-2005, 08:44 PM
I am going to be just shocked if anyone actually completes this.
10-03-2005, 08:50 PM
I am SO all over this!
10-04-2005, 04:12 AM
Wow. Hmm I now have a Scion in the garage so maybe I will enter this one.

10-12-2005, 03:36 PM
I have started on mine but am nowhere near done. :(
13. Bird poop on your Scion
I came out of work yesterday and for the first time in my life was excited to see bird poop on a car of mine, but then I made a disheartening discovery. It is hard to get white bird poo on a white car to show up in a picture. :tap: I took 30 pics from all different angles trying to get it to show up good. :silly:
10-12-2005, 03:39 PM
yeah, I was lucky mine had a yellow tinge to it.
10-12-2005, 03:44 PM
Maybe I'll get "lucky" and another one will poo on my car. lol
10-12-2005, 03:51 PM
starting on my pics for this but were do i post the pics
10-12-2005, 03:53 PM
do it in off topic, and put 'MOD, PLEASE MOVE' and they will move it, and remove that from the title. (they will move it to contest)
10-12-2005, 06:40 PM
Note that all entries are to be placed in Off topic and the Mods and Admin will sort it out from there
10-13-2005, 12:23 AM
This is getting interesting I found a huge freakin dog :) looking for a man in uniform
10-14-2005, 03:42 AM
im soooo in!!!!
10-14-2005, 04:15 AM
NO!! I was doing so good until people started doing it too. LOL
10-15-2005, 01:53 AM
I didn't realize how hard it was going to be to get a cop to pull me over! I asked two last night..one was on a call and was busy. The other I was next to on the street and had his window down...I asked if he could pull me over..he asked why, then said "not tonight". Damn the CHP!
10-15-2005, 03:49 AM
Mine cost me 75.00...and a mark on my driving record...
10-15-2005, 07:00 PM
Well, I didn't want to resort to doing something illegal just to get a photo...and there would be the chance that they wouldn't allow me to take a photo after writing me a ticket for the infraction...so I am resorting to having to ask the cops around town...kind of embarassing, but I guess thats the point of this thing, huh?
10-16-2005, 04:55 AM
I noticed that the photos for October's contest are being posted in the 'off topic' forum. Does this mean I need 50 posts to enter this contest? Also, I have not figured out how to post to this website, and yes, I read the "how to" SEVERAL times. I just don't get it! Can I email the pics to either a mod or someone to post them for me? I did this for the calender contest and it wasn't a problem, but I don't think it was in the 'off topic' forum either. Could a mod please respond? Thanks...
10-16-2005, 09:23 AM
to post a picture on the site:
when you go into the 'POST REPLY' area, there is a button that says 'img' on it, press this before you paste the URL in, then press it again AFTER you paste in the URL, oh, and you have to have the image uploaded onto a hosting site, like PhotoBucket.com or something. When the photo is uploaded, there should be some lines of text under the thumbnail (atleast in photobucket there is) Copy the one that says URL beside it, and put it in between the 'IMG' things, the finished product should look like this: www.fatlardpic/superdooper/con.jpg
except you will have your URL in there instead of the made up one. :D I cant belive I am helping my competition! But I do hope I helped.
10-16-2005, 09:34 AM
Thanks sir scion. It may take a few tries, but I'll give it a shot. I had some "good" luck tonight as far as one of the pics I was trying to get....LOL. The cops looked like they were enjoying "arresting" me...They were posing and smiling!!! Too funny. I can't wait to get these on here as they are pretty funny...not just a picture, but a little more thought was put into them (trying to combine 2 or 3 pics into 1 and trying to make them funny)...LOL.
I am REALLY wanting to go to the dealer and iron my pants while eating an ice cream cone barefoot with a cop behind me with his lights on...that would be cool.
10-16-2005, 09:37 AM
LOL, yeah that would be awsome, I am getting a new digi cam, so I think I may do most of the pics over again.
10-16-2005, 05:03 PM
who was it on the site again that finished their 24-picture set??/ somewhere in the xB forums.. hmm.
10-16-2005, 05:14 PM
so far I think that I am the only person to post any pictures, but I still have two left to do, and I am getting a new digi cam. so I will wait till then, maybe I can re-do some.
10-17-2005, 03:56 AM
Do I have to have 50 posts to post my pics seeing that this is being set up in "off topic"? Mods? Anyone? Can you help me out here?
10-17-2005, 05:36 PM
SirScion... wheres that post... I totaly didn't see the "police picture"
10-17-2005, 05:46 PM
it is off topic..... http://www.scionlife.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=87013&highlight= *sorry for the really bad pics* I dont know why some of them are small, and some are big...it confuses me.
10-17-2005, 06:16 PM
Thanks...was searching for god knows how long...
sirscion and pictures and contest and... blah blah blah..
10-17-2005, 10:24 PM
There is another person that posted a few pics...Some I didn't think would be allowed on this site and could have easily been edited...(lotsa lotsa birdies!!) LOL. Tweet Tweet. :no: I mean, if you can't type it....But man, that a lot of people! Poor suspension!
10-18-2005, 03:55 AM
yeah, I noticed that too....meh...oh, and I have a question to ask, is that one with the car without wheels any good? I mean my defining mark is kinda blurry, I added a small picture of what it was SUPPOSED to be, but We were driving and we went over a bump...so....If not, I can get another one.
10-18-2005, 04:07 AM
Are you asking me? If your pic is any good? I don't think that out of ALL those pics you took, that they are going to say you found that one on the internet somewhere or photoshopped it. I would think that pic is one of the easier ones to get...at least the way you did it. Just going to ANY tire shop can find that. I don't think you will have a problem with it being all the others have the marker in them.
BTW, what did the cop say when asked to take pics? And to throw the little 'marker' on the car? Did he look at you funny or what?LOL.
10-18-2005, 05:10 AM
I told him it was for a school project, he asked to see the list, laughed, and parked behind me and turned on his lights, oh, and I wasnt asking you, I was asking a Mod or Darren, but you bring up a very valid point.
10-18-2005, 05:29 AM
We spent several nights looking for a cop. Then, when we found one, actually two on one night, they both declined. Finally, Friday night, we got our break...a CHP cruiser...they were more than happy to help....and we took it a step further...wait for the pics!
10-31-2005, 04:32 PM
Hey all ... my photos are posted... just wanted to let you know if you had any last minute ideas...
10-31-2005, 06:51 PM
OK guys, a few Floridians requested that this contest be extended for a week since they were having some little hurricane issues... and since I am leaving for Vegas/SEMA today I am not going to be around to judge the contest anyway. This contest has been extended ONE WEEK to November 7th! All of you rushing to get your final photos in... take a deep breath and get some good shots!
10-31-2005, 06:54 PM

11-11-2005, 11:26 PM
Sorry guys, I got caught up in other things... and the winner is...
It was a tough choice, but in the end I went with the photos that got the best laughs from Troy and I. Everyone had funny photos, but x_rayted had some that were just too funny...
- ironing his pants while wearing boxers
- the SIZE of the dog pulling his box
- the chalk drawing
- HOW he got bird poop on his car
- the poor cat!
- the guy climbing the tree
- the cops handcuffing him
No other contestant had the number of photos that got us laughing outloud, so he gets his coihce of the contest prizes! All other finalists are going to get some ScionLife stickers in the mail.
11-11-2005, 11:32 PM
Congrats!!! I knew he could Do it!! Good job x_rayted711!!!..
11-12-2005, 12:04 AM
WOW!! I am BLOWN AWAY!!! I was worried. There are SOO many GOOD photos that everyone sent in! Thank you Scionlife AND to everyone who entered! The other photos are what kept me motivated and we couldn't have done it without everyone elses submissions! Thanks to ALL!
11-12-2005, 12:38 AM
Congrats X awesome Job....what prize ya gonna take?
11-12-2005, 12:55 AM
I don't know Silky...We already have our xB lowered, Already have a strutbar, the red steering wheel wouldn't go good with the TCM and blue LEDs, Already have a Viper alarm...it's between the Audioformz or Scionlife premium pack. I'll be dscussing this over with the other/better half...LOL.
Really though, I am still in a state of shock! I'm glad you guys down there in Florida were able to finish and hope there wasn't TOO much damage down that way.
11-12-2005, 01:01 AM
Can someone post some info on the hotchkis springs? As in what model they are, how much drop, etc.?
If we were to get these, I think I would sell my TRD springs to SirScion for a GREAT price, if not free. Could someone get me some info on the hotchkis springs please?
11-12-2005, 01:48 PM
I want your springs HEHEHE!!! :P
11-13-2005, 04:43 PM
x_rayted has chosen the AudioFormz subwoofer box for his xB!
