If no one cares that I'm cheating by posting an older picture, here's my Vibe hauling our jogging stroller off the back of my Vibe on a bike carrier. A common configuration when we take a road trip. I'll have a new challenge posted shortly.

The next challenge is your ride with some fall foliage, something of color. The red in this pic is of a euonymus in my yard, turns bright red in the fall. It should be relatively easy to get a pic of your car with more impressive fall colors around

Here is my Vibe near the US Colored Troops Memorial in Lexington Park, MD. There were some folks working on the site, so I couldn't get a better picture, but I'd like to see the challenge turnover faster than it has over the last year or two

The next challenge is a picture of your car, or part of your car, that is not normally visible, or something you are working on your car that shows at least some minor level of disassembly. Something more than opening the hood, but can be as simple as showing your air filter or as complicated as removing the tertiary planetary gear bearing from the transmission rhomboid idler shaft, if such a thing existed. I did my front brakes today, so here's a pic of old and new parts for my 03 Base Vibe.

well, I thought that would be an easy enough challenge, but apparently not, with three weeks gone and no takers ...

So, I'll open it up wide, the current challenge is now to post a picture meeting any of the previous challenges in this thread. would be nice if you could include the date the old challenge you're meeting, since this thread is pretty long

OK, I know it doesn't meet the requirements of the most recent challenge, but I've been looking unsuccessfully, and given nobody else has been able to find a defunct truck from the 50's in the three and half years since the last challenge was posted, I decided to cheat, and here's a picture of my Vibe with two defunct trucks

Here's the new challenge, hopefully easy enough to not require 41+ months

Post a new pic of your vibe showing corn (or some other crop not a tree) over the roof of the car. (and then post your new challenge)

So, I've had a note to do this for for a while with some really tall corn and my low car. I kept forgetting. Does this suffice for a crop above my car. :D
