View Full Version : I could use some help...

01-18-2012, 10:49 AM
My Avanti is up for "Cool Car of the Month" on Cool Cars Online. Right now it's bringing up the rear in voting so I'm asking for votes to help it out. You can vote once a day to help prop me up in the standings. Any help is much appreciated.


Vote early and vote often!

01-18-2012, 11:45 AM
done!!! :cool: :)

01-18-2012, 11:48 AM
Done, as well!!! Good luck!

01-18-2012, 11:51 AM
Me, too. Can't drive mine in the winter so may as well make an Avanti COOL :)

01-18-2012, 01:38 PM
Done. Good Luck

01-18-2012, 02:04 PM
Done good luck!!

01-18-2012, 02:26 PM
Done. GtH ('Glad to Help). ('Looked like you were just a vote or two from climbing off the bottom rung of the ladder, Bruce.) BP

I just voted about a dozen times and the percentage never changed from 11.35?

Ted: It says they'll only take one vote from a given computer / e-mail addy(?) every 24 hours. You could probably "vote" a dozen times and it would just ignore any votes after the first one. (From what I understand; 'could be wrong, I 'spose.) BP

01-18-2012, 02:49 PM
You just overtook the buggy.

01-18-2012, 02:50 PM
I just voted, you're up a rung on the ladder now. Good luck!

01-18-2012, 02:51 PM
Ted always has his foot on the pedal :)

01-18-2012, 02:57 PM
I got it to change a slight amount by voting 5 times and going to the Comments page where there is a Larger bar chart now showing 12%. Also clicking "View Results" seems to work but the numbers are different than on the "Comments" page.

01-18-2012, 03:03 PM
done nice car!!

01-18-2012, 03:27 PM
I appreciate all the help. It started several months back when I bought some Sta-Bil for the cars while sitting over the winter months. There was a rebate and the paperwork mentioned the website. I signed up and added pics of my cars.

I was out of town on vacation all last week and part of the week before and didn't have email access to get the word about being up for Cool Ride of the Month so I'm starting out way behind on this. I appreciate all everyone is doing to help me out.

01-18-2012, 03:35 PM
I just voted for the Avanti but the Dodge delivery caught my eye but I didn't vote for it.

01-18-2012, 03:53 PM
Done, Love your Avanti !!!!!!!

01-18-2012, 04:10 PM
A 1963 Dodge Town Wagon has 3X the votes of a 70 Avanti II !!!??? Either the voters on that site are older than we are or we ain't voting enough. Come on Folks, let's give Bruce a chance.

It says we're only allowed to vote ONCE per day. So I did, and will again tomorrow. Good luck, my friend!

01-18-2012, 06:33 PM
I voted for the Avanti and will do so again.

01-18-2012, 06:36 PM
Just voted and your Avanti is the coolest!

01-18-2012, 06:57 PM
Ditto!! Beautiful car, GS!

01-18-2012, 07:21 PM
Mr. B, i just got on my old laptop in the cave and voted again. :)

i was wondering if your "door situation", that happened last year, turned out ok.

and just wanted to thank you for all the info provided here when i searched for answers on the forum when i was putting R-1384 back together! :D

01-18-2012, 07:46 PM
Cool ride! Makes my '81 look like a back row piece. You got my vote.

A very nice Avanti! Voted.

01-18-2012, 08:00 PM
I got my licks in for the Avanti also......Keep on Studebakering

01-18-2012, 08:06 PM
Nice Avanti, vote cast.

01-18-2012, 08:12 PM
C'mon people.... VOTE!
It for a good cause.

The AvanTi Party!!!!!

01-18-2012, 08:16 PM

Lookin' good! 'Just moved up to third place! Cool Beans. BP

01-18-2012, 09:43 PM
I don't know, that buggy sure is an eye catcher...just like any other train wreck. Seriously, it was well done (when acid was the drug of choice in the swinging 60's). Kinda like the paint job on Avanti 1001 was unique. Yes the Dodge has a great look, the Camaro was not stricking, well done but nothing standing out and I guess I've seen too many T-buckets. Seriously though, Gunny has done spectacular job on his car and has well deserved all of our votes (including the one I just placed). Too bad the pics are so small!

01-18-2012, 09:45 PM
I voted this morning, will do so again tomorrow. In third place now. Keep bumping the thread so we don't forget.

01-18-2012, 09:51 PM
Done !
Glad to help..

01-18-2012, 10:01 PM
i just "shared the link":

to all my facebook friends (what few i have) :rolleyes:, to vote for mr. b's avanti everyday!

go to the voting site, click on "share", tell everyone to vote for the "white avanti"!

01-19-2012, 01:34 AM
Vote daily, it only takes a minute. If you cruise the site you will find links to notify your friends on all the social networks plus e-mail links.
As Jeff says, it's the AvanTi party, let your friends know. Good Luck Bruce!!!!!

01-19-2012, 05:32 AM
I hit it again today, will do it again tomorrow.

01-19-2012, 05:50 AM
You got my vote !!!

01-19-2012, 07:23 AM
Looks like it's moving up in the rankings since yesterday!

01-19-2012, 07:33 AM
Oooooooo, its moving up....Just cast my vote for today, will do it again tomorrow......Keep on Studebakering

01-19-2012, 07:40 AM
Done! Good luck

01-19-2012, 12:15 PM
I did it!!!

01-19-2012, 12:39 PM
It's still at third place. I joined the site to vote. You didn't tell us there was a math question I had to answer to get signed up. Good thing I had enough fingers to figure out how much 5 and 3 were.....

01-19-2012, 03:22 PM
'Just voted today. Closing in on #2 and opening the gap between #3 and #4. Cool beans! BP

01-19-2012, 03:47 PM
Done! If you win you could then run in November.

01-20-2012, 12:47 PM
Hey Gunslinger, My wife saw your picture and now she wants Kelsey Hayes wheels and red line tires for our 63. Where'd you find the best price on those? thanks Tom

01-20-2012, 01:10 PM
less than 2% to second place!!! :cool::cool::cool:

c'mon guys (and gals)! :)

01-20-2012, 07:13 PM
Might take one more vote to move it in to second place.

01-20-2012, 07:40 PM
Done! Beautiful car,only one there to vote for......But if they add a 53 C/K at the last second....well that may be a different story!

Chicken Hawk
01-20-2012, 08:45 PM
Voting every day!


01-20-2012, 09:27 PM
I just voted and now tied for second!

01-20-2012, 09:46 PM
See you moved up to second after todays votes. Nice car & good luck

01-20-2012, 11:49 PM
Congratulations!!!!!!! You are now in second place!

01-21-2012, 04:35 AM
Second and climbing. I'm voting everyday. Hope it helps. That MOPAR truck is neat, but it is only second to the Avanti on this list. ;) :)

Bob Andrews
01-21-2012, 04:55 AM
Voting every day as well. Don't know if we can catch the Dodge but let's go for it! Keep this thread bumped for the weekend viewers!

Voted 5 times so far from two computers. You're in second place, but overtaking that Dodge is gonna be tough.

01-21-2012, 09:39 AM
I definitely appreciate the help. I really started out behind the eight ball since I was away for most of the first two weeks of the month and was unaware of it until I returned.

It's an uphill battle but whatever happens happens!

01-21-2012, 10:10 AM
Just don't brag about multiple voting...
It can bring unwarranted scorn upon the contestant (especially from the AACA crowd)...

01-21-2012, 10:13 AM

01-22-2012, 04:53 AM
If you have a mobile with internet you can vote daily on that too.

01-22-2012, 02:05 PM
Remember guys, second place is the first looser.
Hey, guilt is a grreat motivator!
Gunny is only 9 1/2 points behind the Dodge, keep it up!
Cheers, Kennie

01-23-2012, 09:18 PM
'Just voted again, but that Dodge is commanding a good lead. Better second than less-than-second, and at least the Dodge is a cool vehicle. BP

It's OK in this case, since the rules say we can vote every day. The problem would be people voting MORE than once per day.

Hope we all remember to do our one vote a day; whatever happens we can know we did it honestly. Good luck, my good friend!

01-23-2012, 09:26 PM
Done. Just remember to do the same in the upcoming Presidential elections! Dan

01-23-2012, 09:35 PM
You got my vote.

01-24-2012, 08:30 AM
That Dodge has a pretty steady lead...looks like he's matching vote for vote. His friends are helping daily just as mine are. There's only a few days left but whatever happens, happens. It does make me wonder whether I could be doing better if I had known of this at the beginning of the month rather than halfway through.

01-24-2012, 08:55 AM
Let's make sure a lot of people know about this contest!

The boo-birds have already started complaining when the Avanti broke through to second place.
That, in itself, motivates me to push even harder...
Having lived through that a few years ago... The best answer is to .......WIN!

01-25-2012, 08:45 AM
Time to bump the thread back to page one. May as well keep pushing 'til we cross the finish line.

01-25-2012, 10:16 PM
The Dodge Brothers contingent must be on to us.

'Got to #2 and 'can't seem to close that gap. Phooey.

'Keep voting anyway, and spread the word. BP

01-25-2012, 10:53 PM
Gunslinger, Car is looking good! Just voted "Chicago-Style". Vote Early and often!

01-25-2012, 11:49 PM
I voted, always happy to help out a fellow Avanti owner.

If we don't hang together....

01-27-2012, 09:36 AM
Just bumping it to the top...only a few more days to catch up.

01-27-2012, 09:52 AM
'Widening the lead over #3 but still not closing in on #1, percentage-wise.

Phooey. 'Will keep voting. BP

01-29-2012, 11:02 PM
Bumping it up...only two more days to get ahead. Hope everyone helps out.

01-30-2012, 08:31 AM
Just a bump to get people to vote for this Avanti. I vote daily. Good luck.


01-31-2012, 03:54 PM
just hit a little "bump" in the road... ;)

apparently the mopar guys are really hitting the poll also - we can at least get mr. b's avanti over 30% by a good margin...
