    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    While I always enjoy vintage photos and comparisons such as this I have to ask how much of it is actually in the pose? McQueen is in a much more natural position, lower seat so his leg is bent to eliminate the break in the pants. This allows his arms to be at more natural angles and to sit much closer to his body. The shoulder buckle on the right shoulder looks to me like it may be caused by the unnatural angle of the SFers arm. It is interesting though how McQueen's body is bent even further to the right but he has none of the wrinkling of his suit on that side?

    Knowing how much photo ops like this are staged I suppose its also possible he had somebody straighten out his clothing after he was in position for the best look.

    I think that the differences that one sees are entirely because of the car.

    Notice McQueen's magic vanishes when he is not in physical contact with it.

    That's my theory.

    What I want to know is, why on God's green earth would you pose with a Prius?

    My second installment as guest editor is admittedly late. My apologies. Accordingly I have one Valtrexa (white leather) key fob to the first PM correctly stating the origin of my "groupings." Hint Again, digest choices are purely subjective. Enjoy.

    Some SF regulars constantly produce elegant fits which provide excellent studies in style....

    Others apply their keen eye and create fresh fits with surprising frequency. (I struggle with my stale o'le stuff).

    Assessments of fits posted often lead to interesting (or not) discussions as well as standard SF rules....

    People should consider the joy, intellectual stimulation and carnival atmosphere of SF.

    Thank you for looking. Let the games begin. This nice piece of Valextra has been sitting in my desk for a year and needs a home. Have a great weekend.

    Didn't see this earlier ... WAYWRN P.1 is locked (and I don't copy the entire thing to my hard drive like Vox does), so I can't quote MillionaireTeacher's epic post here as a response to both of you. So, I will give you a serious answer: 1. I don't own a Ferrari [​IMG] 2. The Prius was in the driveway.
    '60s natural shoulder FTW.
    Yes, this became apparent to me after I saw the photos side-by-side. The beauty of seeing and evaluating photos.

    Nice work, Greg, and thanks for the include.

    Cool picks Greg, and thanks for the include. Alas, I cannot crack your code, but I do like the &quot;PS&quot; theme you had going there..

    Sent in my guess. If I'm right, it's a very clever twist. If I'm wrong, it must be even cleverer! [​IMG] By the way, awesome digest. I think it's probably one of the strongest weeks we've had; esp. the second grouping. Some really great looks from a good range of different members. Nice to see it all pulled together into the digest.

    I'd suggest either one of the more prolific posters of late, SpooPoker, the young aeglus or srivats. I like Bogart.

    Many interesting PMs regarding the "challenge." I'll let the PMs roll in until Wed. AM. At that point I'll list a few quotes of the best ideas (all privacy respected). I mean we do have HIPPA to consider.
