    The were taken by a pro in about 8mb size without any flash.
    He sat the camera on tripod and set the camera to take 25 seconds exposure and thats how all the light comes in.

    I'm drueling.. over both.

    J., the larger the file size, the better the picture resolution. He is probably using a 12 MP or better camera. For my website I still use a 7.0 but the old 3.1 is really all I need for web pics.

    Whatever you spent on those pictures is worth it to me-I cannot wait to get a black 300. Who built it?

    Your 300 is BEAUTIFUL! How about some shots of the interior too! What are you waxing it with? Our charger shines with good elbow grease and lots of sweat/spit polish, but those pics sure make yours look like glass!! I love the neon underneath the car. Not sure it's legal here, but will have hubby check on it. Makes for a great picture anyhow!

    If I ever get to Australia, which is a goal/dream, You'll be my limo guy for sure!!!
    Glad you joined the forum!

    The photos cost me nothing as it was a member of another forum.
    The car was built by Pinnacle in the US!

    Hey Leader,

    Did you provide the chasis for pinnacle to stretch ? or did you buy the limo completed ? I have never seen a 300m diesel in the U.S. any where. Did not even know they made one. Is it a speciality car manufactured for the foriegn market. Is there a market for importing chrysler's and hummers to Austrailia. I live about 1.5hr. drive from Pinnacle. Is there a demand for pinnacle vehicles down under ? Just curious.

    It is an Australian version car that came to Melbourne and then got resent to US to Pinnacle. Most of US version 300cs that get imported to Australia fail to meet compliance as its very stringent especially with the emission controls. I purchased this car through a Melbourne dealer who did all the organising and compliance back in OZ.
    If you went to Pinnacle I am pretty sure you'll find more diesels there as they do heaps of work for OZ.

    Personally I do like the diesel engines, but here in the states it's rare to find diesel-powered cars. We pretty much only use diesel for our large trucks. We are a country driven on gas engines.

    I'm guessing that you guys have more diesel-powered stuff than you do gas?

    Given our higher price of fuel diesel is a viable option as you get about 30% more distance per tank.
