The Red Rocket.
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

This is known as the 'Red Rocket' to many BMW enthusiasts in the Tristate area. Autocraft BMW Specialists in Uniondale, NY gave their restored, red, 1990 BMW M3 a complete makeover inside and out, and gave it a new "heart".
The powerplant and drivetrain comes from the newer E46-chassis BMW M3 that was in production from 2001-2006. It's S54 3.2-liter Inline-6 engine makes 333 horsepower right out of the factory. This car has a bit more punch thanks to a Custom Kromerkraft exhaust headers with a custom exhaust exiting at the back of the car. Along with some other power upgrades, everything is functional and looks as if BMW sold the car this way.
The performance of this car is mind-blowing. Anyone who has driven the newer, E46 M3 will tell you it's a hoot to drive. Now take approximately 750 pounds off of that. That is what you have here. A car with over 350bhp and weighing in at less than 2700 pounds. The chassis seems to cope well with the increased power, and is rather smooth with its delivery.
