Why is an unfree image used for this header? --Cadby (talk) 01:19, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Good point. Some (free) suggestions:

We should choose an image. In the mean time I have changed it to the Maserati MC12 image. Personally I would prefer either the Maserati MC12 and the Audi R10. Just add any other suggestions to the gallery. James086Talk | Email 08:18, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

I also changed the images on Template:WP:SCR User and at WP:MOTOR to free alternatives. Again, they can be changed, it's just important not to use a non-free image anywhere but the article-space. James086Talk | Email 08:36, 24 April 2007 (UTC)
If I can Photoshop out the background of Image:Lowenbrau962.JPG, I think it may be a good picture to use since it's one of the most recognizable sports cars, it's a free image that I personally took and released (all the ones in that gallery I believe are Flickr photos), and with the background removed it'll be easy to see.

How about this? Shows 3 classes of cars all right together. --Spyder_Monkey (Talk) 08:24, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Actually both of those images are far better than the image of the Maserati MC12. James086Talk | Email 08:50, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

A reminder that this logo will also have to be used on Template:WP:SCR User, so it will have to shrink well yet remain visible enough to be understood. The359 16:25, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

Both seem to work well enough. --Spyder_Monkey (Talk) 20:42, 25 April 2007 (UTC)

I'd like to get some more input on this so we can make a decision about what picture to put up, if possible. The359 16:14, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

I've taken the liberty of finally changing the image on the banner to the 962. The other suggested image, although it does show three classes of cars at the same time, I think is difficult to read since the three cars overlap one another. If no one objects to this change, then hopefully we can consider the matter solved. The359 06:58, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

I think it looks good. James086Talk | Email 13:29, 22 October 2007 (UTC)
