So I know most of us like cars or else we wouldn't be here. Just wondering
what people have for a background image on their computer. Here is

That's what's up right now... :laughing:
Which computer? the one I have at home is too big so here's the link. It's

this is mines....notice the lady croft tatoo.....cute aint it? :hi: :guns: it rotates everyhour with the one below it :laughing:
Edit: I gave you the chance.
Would both of you scale down your pics...it's quite annoying...and I've only been telling this to everyone for the past few days now...
Maybe they can understand your edit and delete finger. :banghead: Do we all have to be annoyed?
I'll give them a chance to do it themselves first...then I hit the
Voda was the smart one...he provided a link if the wallpaper was interesting enough to someone. Thanks for putting some thought in, Voda!
the one at school is a STi wallpaper...
Thanks for the recognition :thumbs:
current; (that's me btw)
...are we liking ourself? :laughing: :wink2:
The previous is right up my alley! :thumbs:
Fords first attemt with the econo wagon since the early Falcon meet with mixed reviews. :heh:
hehe.. nope but i dig the lighting and overall darkness of it... :smoke:
It's like a Stephen King book cover...no offense! :wink2:
I know of bald faced, half assed, but the half face, never seen before. :doh: :laughing: Are you playing with your camera? :thumbs:
I have a lot of them from here: http://www.dieselstation.com/archives.html,
along with a number of shots I've taken myself. And then I cycle them
hourly with Wallpaper Cycle: http://www.tucows.com/preview/289497.html
right now, the following is up on screen, but it'll be gone in an hour...
I have the Aprilia Tuono.
I previously had the 2004 Yamaha YZF-R1. http://www.yamaha-motor.com/products/UnitImage.asp?lid=2&lc=mcy&cid=5&mid=6 &iid=5047
mines too big to put on here directly, so just see it here (http://img53.photobucket.com/albums/v162/ShenEurope2004/AJ%20L/M_Coupe.jpg ) :thumbs:
That is a very cool (from a Photographer viewpoint) picture of you UFF...from the lighting and such...
My current one at school:
Smooth pic SJ. I like the lighting :thumbs:
hey sorry to get you guys vexed but i am a newbie! how do you scale them
down and to what size is best? i copy the pictures straight of the internet
so a don't know how to. some one help me out.......how could you post
pictures of your hard drive on to here? is it possible?
once again, sorry guys
btw, who likes that lady croft picture? :hi:

Sorry guys that my first pic was so damn huge. I'll make a link to it instead. :thumbs:
Here is my new one. :drool: Carmella
Here is a link (http://home.ripway.com/2004-3/84054/Carmella/CarmellaDecesare3.bmp) to the bigger image
i like yours Voda. :drool:
:clap: very nice voda :clap:
even though that angelina jolie isnt even on mines......a got the original windows xp hills and blue sky one :laughing: :laughing:
here's mine. I had to edit it so the proportions are :tard:
Nice Voda! :clap:
true to my sig, this (http://www.autotudos.hu/kep_het_kep_03_09_subaru_impreza_wrx_nagy.jpg) is my bg
what is up with people and scooby's? :screwy:
i have an app that plays my screensaver as my desktop. right now i have flying toasters gracefully flying across my desktop.
I'm sorry, what is a scooby??
subaru. one characteristic of subaru cars is the prominent hood scoop.
therefore, the moniker "Scooby" was born. :thumbs:
almost forgot. there is a friendly rivalry amongst the more serious saab and subaru owners, so it's kind of expected that a saab afficionado such as myself would refer to subaru's by their nickname scooby.
hope that explains everything.
I know "obsessed" :PP
I got you. I guess I have just never heard that term used before. Saab lovers use it then mainly huh??
I guess. I'm not really a Saab lover, however my mom has a Saab and I've found myself liking every minute of being in it. Except for the massive blind spots (it's a 2001 Saab 93 Turbo Vert)
Scooby comes from Scooby Doo, which sounds similar to Subaru. It's been a pet name/nickname for Subarus since the days of the early Subaru Brat in the '70s, which had no hood scoops.
fast, turbo'd, awd, good price, practical. in other words, it does and has everything (even a saab-like interior)
except theys ugly as hell imho, lol :laughing:
When we are on wallpapers... my school took away the ability to change one's desktop, so I programmed a excecutable on Visual Basic that overrides it... good stuff...
if i ever get one, ill make sure you only see the tail lights :laughing:
HELL YA!! :thumbs: :clap: :hi: :smoke:
whatever. let's see your little toy- i mean scooby last 277k miles without having a thermal breakdown and then we'll talk :thumbs:
You know it could and still kick the a*s of anything in your garage!
Subarus are very reliable and long lasting, given normal check ups and
maintenance. What car do you have?
Well, i changed my sig again cuz my wallpaper changed, but i still love subarus.
i personally have a saab, which is the 18 year old 277k miles one. most expensive thing we've had to do to it is replace the rotors and calipers awhile back. and if you think your special because a turbo'd plastic car can out-run it, you should realize that a minivan is faster than it. but then again, i highly doubt your little wrx will last even close to 18 years.
Wow where did this hostility come from??
uhhh...i'm not sure how you guys are reading that as hostility. i answered his question. you guys take things waaaay to seriously if you think i meant that in a hostile way :screwy:
Well in that case I have a 1930 dodge. That is 74 years old and all
original!!! ....how bout them apples :mrgreen: (just playing, but here is
a picture of it taken a few years ago with my sis driving)
Click here (http://home.ripway.com/2004-3/84054/dodge/1930Dodge.jpg) for the Picture
Voda..that picture is absolutelly massive, is there any way you can down size it so it's abit quicker to load up? :ohcrap:
lol...saab...subaru...gm. They are all linked so im afraid you are
basically dissing a car that shares some of its components with saabs. The
new wrxs are using interiors from saab, and probably other things i am not
aware of, just so you know.
As a matter-of-fact, i do think wrxs are special as they've been the best-selling subaru and top 10 buys ever since it came to the US. Also, the wrx is one of the few cars that can be modded into an insanely fast car, yet it can still serve as a daily driver and even as a family car.
Now, i could care less if any car lasted 18 years. These days, most people get newer cars so frequently that 10+ years from a car is not necessary. So, you can gloat about your car's longevity but no one cares.
As for a minivan being faster, sure, anything can be made fast, even shit like a minivan, but you cant deny that the minivan is still shit.
I dont see any hostility here, im just replying to your reply :thumbs:
i'll work on it. it is 1.67mb. I am trying to study for finals :doh:
heh. well good for you. most people don't care about their cars enough to take care of em for that long.
Here she is:

Thanx Voda, much better! :thumbs:
Very nice :clap:
About the GM and Subaru thing...
I will admit that GM owns some of Subaru, but not enough to make an huge difference.... the companies that are intertwined within GM do share some things, but as you can tell GM has yet to destroy Subaru, and so obviously has done very little involving it....
You know it will, some of the oldest road-going cars I have seen are Subarus... they are reliable and can easily last 18 years if you care for them...
im hopin it'll stay that way. But you gotta admit, the saab's interior is a huge upgrade over what subaru used to put in the wrxs. I just hope GM wont distribute subaru's AWD and engines or put their engines into subarus, that will just ruin the whole uniqueness and flavor of subaru cars.
Regardless of who owns Subaru, They would have upgraded the interior because the old one was out dated :2cents:
i totally agree :thumbs:
Very true.. very true...
Heres some good wallpaper:....
Nice Hu !!!
I know that first pic is from NFS 2. I played that game so much when I was a little kid..
Here is today's Background:
very mint rims...AWESOME !!
Be careful about using the word rims. THere has been much dispute over the
correct title and most people here feel that that is "wheel" not "rim".
ok than..lol......Nice WHEELS !!!
You see Bav would rip ou apart for using the term "rims" isn't that right Bav?
I would attempt to correct first...(I hope)
well, im glad i learned now, becaus i was "torn apart"
I usually have patience when people use the word "rims". I want to correct them, but figure they'll learn some day. I have 0 patience for people who spell Camaro "Camero".....just bugs me for some reason.... :screwy:
The second picture from those two is from Too Fast Too Furious...
I only did it once though :oops:
Enron Fever, please, enlighten me. Could you tell me where I can buy a stock Mini-Van that run's low 13's?
I doubt he can tell you...
I forgot to mention, The Wrx isn't plastic, she's Aluminum.
Well... some of it is plastic... but ya...
Yeah, but that's just the scoop, and maybe the wing, I'm not sure if that's plastic or Carbon Fiber.
Here is todays:
(its large but not a big file :hi:
Here (http://home.ripway.com/2004-3/84054/Viper/Viper1.jpg) is the bigger image
That viper kinda has a streched S15 strawberry face appeal to it. Nice n
Never really understood that one. Same thing with NOS and Nitrous Oxide. I mean if you ask for a kleenex somone hands you a tissue. Irregaurdless to the fact that a kleenex is a brand of tissue. Yes I know that the rim is'nt technically the whole wheel, but you get what that person means. No need to get super technical... right?
NOS is a company that makes Nitrous Oxide, there is a differnece there. There are many more companies out there that make Nitrous for car :thumbs:
This is mine :thumbs:

Well guy I just made this wallpaper and it is what I am using now.
Voda....Downscale, and hurry before Bav yells at you or other members complain comprende?(sp?)

What size monitor is that????
yes satty, u spelled "comprende" right :P
19", the oth^^
19", the other one is 21"
When I just take the original poster size as the background -- I should hire the Times Square in NY :wink2:
this is my wallpaper...beautiful isnt it. note: id still get the hayabusa or the gsx-r waaaaaaayyyy be4 this 1.
The R1 is hot, hotter, the hottest :smoke:
This is up right now
aww wtf what do i do on this forum to post pictures saved on my computer? Sorry, im used to another meathod, im a noob.
you need to find a website to host your pics. go to photobucket.com, register, and upload your pics there. than make a link to your pics on photobucket here.
u gotta use the manage attachments thing at the bottom when replying
Yah i tryed to upload my pics throught there, but it didnt work, im going to try to use photobucket, thks anyway.
Lol isnt the skyline atleast a 9 second car?
hey bav, is it possible to make the upload image thing post pics as if it was directed towards another URL instead of just an attachment?
If I'm understanding you correctly, Yes...just like you posted the pic in
EDIT: OH...No...apparently the url it assigns to the uploaded pic is not a proper "image" url other than to "attach" it.
oh damn.... i guess u should gather up some good webhosting places (some unlike geocities and angelfire) and add them all to a sticky....
Check this out
Mine is a picture of my car found on our website
Here's my latest:
ok...here's my latest.
In my opinion, you have WAY to many icons on your desktop. I however like the pic :thumbs:
Lol, I have 1 more icon than he does...
My desktop used to have half of the screen covered with icons, but then I discovered the joyous system known as "Unused Desktop Icons" what a joyous thing... :thumbs:
Crap shows up on desktop all the time. If you don't want it, right click on the icon you don't want and click delete.
True, but the crap I want, but dont want on my desktop just goes into the unused thing... I delete stuff all the time, its the stuff that is somewhat useful that I use Unused Icons for...
I had posted my wallpapers that I was using up but now they are
gone...thread deleted perhaps...oh well...I bring this thread back to
My 3 favorite car ones...the last one is not a wallpaper...just a big photo!
This is my current:
My last wallpaper:
Here's mine. It's my Corsy that got wrecked, and I missed her, so I put it
up, the only difference is it's tiled on my desktop.
So what do you drive now?
1993 Subaru Impreza L. I did tke pics, but haven't gotten them back yet :banghead:
This is what my Wallpaper/Background is set as:
I like the car and think Chevy (GM) would be smart if they make this a production car.
Seems kinda cartoony in its ballon shape doesnt it?
Ya, i didnt really notice it until you mentioned it but it kinda does. I
dont think it would look exactly like that even if they do put it into
production, they tend to make great looking concepts but take those great
styling cues away when making it a production car.
This is supposedly the concept Yenko Camaro.
I hate that Chevy grill...why they got use it in EVERYTHING!
Because it's a Chevy maybe?
Haha well what better way to save money then re-using parts from other cars. Not the best idea but whatever works i guess. I still feel it would give the Mustang a run for its money (depending on price range).
