Deviants

It's time to add a contributor or two to :iconcadillacpastpresent: I've run this group for a couple of years on my own. During that time it has grown slowly and the group gets submissions every month so it is not a high maintenance group. The rules are simple, the categories are easy to use. But I think it is time to add a fresh perspective so the group doesn't get stale.

So here's what I'm looking for: First, someone who likes the Cadillac marque and can recognize (or look up) the model years to make sure the submissions go into the correct category. A contributor is able to offer invitations to join the group and I have not been very active in doing that lately. Any group needs to have new members. This group doesn't need a hundred new members every month, I would rather see it gain fewer members who are interested in Cadillac.

One thing I have not allowed are members who want to join the group and then slam in their entire gallery immediately. I have quit other groups that allow that. No one wants to see their inbox slammed with 50 or more deviations from one artist every day. That's why I turned off automatic acceptance. I generally do not allow more than 6 submissions per day from a member. On occasion I'll allow one or two more, but if there's more than that they will be added at 6 per day.

The group does not allow anything but Cadillac or LaSalle related submissions. If it isn't clearly a Cadillac or LaSalle, it doesn't belong here, although one idea I've had was to add a category like "Cadillac's Major Competitors in the 1920s" or something like that. It would have to be controlled, it is not meant to allow people to post Chevrolets and Fords or even Buicks, but strictly for competing 1920s marques like Packard, Peerless, Pierce-Arrow, Lincoln, Duesenberg. It could be a featured category, meaning fewer submissions would be allowed, selected on the basis of quality of photography as well as the subject's ability to compete in the Cadillac market.

I'm open for ideas from the new contributors and we can agree to change the rules and try other ideas. We can reorganize the categories, maybe raise the submission limit to 10. I have not done any contests or promotions and if the new contributors want to test these or any other good ideas, we will run them and see what happens. The group today is 116 members. It doesn't seem outrageous to think that a Cadillac group could be double or even triple in size and not lose its focus.

I am offering two contributor positions and hopefully some existing members would like to become involved. Since I have decided to concentrate on my new career as an author of books, there has not been enough time for me to keep the group fresh and exciting. There is also the probability that I will transition out of the group and possibly out of deviantart for various reasons and if there were contributors who would like to take over I will hand it off. I like the group, I like Cadillac and even though my personal favorites are more in the Mopar lineup I like almost all cars and trucks.

Take a moment to look over the group's rules, keeping in mind that we can make reasonable changes as long as the focus is on Cadillac/LaSalle. If interested please reply by sending a note to the group or me personally. It may take me a couple days to get back to you but I hope to add contributors in the next week or two.

That's a good catch! Hard to tell exactly, but it does appear to be a Cadillac. I also like seeing the driver in the photo, he is wearing a duster in an effort to keep his clothes somewhat clean. Automobiling was an adventure in those days!
Thank you for posting this gem. I've requested it for the CadillacPastPresent group.

I submitted 3 pics of the Cadillac-engined Allard J2 I have in my gallery- the race prepped 331 Cadillac engine pic I have in the engine section should likely be included in the Allard section, since that's the same vehicle. The Simone Museum's J2 is clearly a 331 Cadillac-Allard as well, I'll forward what pics I have in the gallery, you may find the information contained here interesting. If I have an opportunity in the future I'll try and get engine bay pics since I have a guess it's more in-period perfect.

The other J2 and J2X's in my gallery are Chrysler, Ford, and Ford-ARDUN powered- but considering only 90 J2 and 823 J2X were built and I've got pics of 5 of them, I consider myself fortunate.

Thank you for the Cadillac-Allard photos! These classic racecars definitely have a place here. I agree that an Allard engine bay with a Cadillac engine in it belongs in the Cadillac-Allard folder - it's the main reason for the car's fame and success. Do you have any photos of a Briggs Cunningham Cadillac engined car? If you do let me know and I will make a folder.

the C4R at Simeone's Hemi powered.

What you're thinking of would be the two Cadillacs he entered in the 1950 LeMans event, both finished a respectable 10th and 11th place.

Here's a nice article on them with pics- and both are part of the Collier Collection (next link):
