Agh, I can't find this shot of a 2006 GP anywhere but I remember seeing it. Can someone help locate it? It's a shot of a 06 GP rolling with blue skies in the background. It was taken from the front corner up 3/4 shot. I remember seeing it in a blog about how he rigged the shot and photoshopped out the rig. I want that image!

Let a few mods go with it but I was at 62k and it was either a new FJCW or the GP2 before the end of the R56..Just decided to go for it and get Gen2 GP…

Nice photo.

Found the source. Scott Duke Photography. His site is flash so you can't save out the photo, but a quick web tool pulls up this link for his photo:
