Harry,

The warm weather in Chi-town must be getting to you as no one has guessed "model" as of yet.

I thought that truck looked familiar and the others have reminded me of whose it is.

It has been pretty warm here lately... B)


Maybe I should up the ante and allow myself to manipulate the photos more! :o

Exactly!

The mark of a well-done retouch job is the fact that you can't even tell...

That's exactly right. We've gone over this before, guys. If you KNOW the answer for sure, DON'T TELL EVERYONE ELSE WHAT THE ANSWER IS! That just ruins the whole thing for everyone! If you tell everyone that it's a photo of the "John Jones hot rod that I saw on TV last week" then you've just ruined the game for everyone else. :D

Oh well...this one's over. I'll try again Monday...

Harry, IIRC the same thing happened at the other site and I believe that the only way to prevent most instances of people blurting out the answer is to make the rules of the game clear in every week's ROM. Nobody's trying to sabotage it, they simply either forgot or don't know the rules. A little "boilerplate" warning should work wonders ;)

Good idea. I'll spell it out next time.
