    I was thinkin about this- we should try to get a CK5 team on Junkyard Wars. We could have a vote to name the top 3 most knowledgeable people on the boards, and the first place person would be captain. Then if they made the show (and probably would) they could somehow mention CK5 at various times and boost the site. Anyone think this could/would work anybody like the idea- this may have been covered and I did a search, but I could have missed the thread.

    you know this could work, we've got some guys on here in the fabrication and welding industry that could whoop some ASS on that show. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It wouldn't even be entertaining we could send:

    Dr. Watson
    Marv Springer
    Borregno (sp?)
    Butch
    Rene
    Russ
    Greg72
    KidJethro
    *i know i am forgetting like 100's of people but you get the point*

    it is a dream team. you pick any 3 of those guys and the others are screwed, no matter what they build.

    well if it was ck5 vs pirate you would hafta make sure there were no newbs on their team, or they'd just make fun of him the whole time and not build any thing.

    That's no crap, Sherlock!! /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I wouldn't even think twice of trying to be one to compete against POR as they would probably target me and try to do some bodily harm!!! /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    no I think there smarter than that, they would just have one person designated for that task, and swap off on occasion, making the newbie there little bit*h.

    Seriously I like this idea but they should make it more ck5 vs the bronco site or something similar, like go 3ways that show and do ck5 vs broncs vs chargers.

    pirate is too general, but it still could be a good show. that and quite a few members on here are over there too so...

    true- i'll write up a draft email to send to Junkyard wars later tonight, let ya'll proof it and let all ya'll 'sign' it- then head over to the Bronco and Ramcharger sites and send them the challenge and tell them what to do if they like the idea. And I'm sure Steve could have some nice influence on this, and we'd need his permission to use the name ColoradoK5.com. If this happens- i'm going to somehow bribe a competitor to sneak a photo of my truck onto the show/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    sound like a good plan?

    Okay, how about FULL METAL CHALLENGE? Wouldn't that be better? See which group can build the best all around wheeler from scratch, using only parts from their chosen manufacturer (would have to be separate rule). The show gives you a 3 thousand dollar budget, and with this groups fabrication skills and 4x4 knowledge, we could walk away with it. Junkyard wars would be cool, but why not go with what we live, wheeling? Full Metal Challenge site GO CK5 /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    That is a thought, but we wouldn't have to the other two teams, we could just vote on four guys to go and DOMINATE. It would be awesome.
