Admin, I think you should add another rule:

Cost of vehicle and mods cannot exceed $1.25 million.

This will force Rob to enter the Green Dragon, giving others a fighting chance.

Get Rob out of the way the first two months and then we can see what others have to offer. Are you going to let vendors post as long as they own the car? What about extra points for sexy models to help show off the car?

It's like the guy who raced motocross in my old home town when I was a kid (who ended up marrying my sister.) He raced 125cc, 250cc and open class and every year for 3 years he won the points championship in all 3 classes. The next few years they had an "overall champion" trophy for him so others could have a chance!

Overall champion 1 = Punisher
Overall champion 1.A = Green Dragon

NEXT!

2007 2.4L N/A. Stock + some pretty crap.

It is just favorite car. Favorite car could just mean whatever anyone thinks it should be.

I consider it to be based on scenery and picture quality. I want the photos provided to be "calender quality" meaning if someone wanted to make a calender of the cars of the month, the pictures would be worthy in scenery and quality of picture to make that happen. That is why I have selected the 3 pictures I have because they are all IMO great scenery and great quality photos.

We all have modifications on cars, that does not matter when it comes to stuff like this. At least it does not matter to me.

Well, you can see my scenery pics by clicking on the links in my signature. My only mod is a windrestrictor.

You only get 3 pictures, and you need to post them in a reply in this thread to submit them for the car of the month.

I'm tellin! I'm tellin! Rob's disqualified - he posted more than 3 pictures!!!!!

Rob's disqualified! Yes yes yes!!

Admin - you gotta kick him outta the contest!!



I guess the contest should be a bit like Olympic skating. Each judge sees different elements and assigns a value to it. Mods, a sh!t ton of power, aesthetics, background/environment, sentimental value, etc.

Just a chance to have some fun with it all.

(And I wasn't really trying to get Rob disqualified.)

(Though he did break the rules.)
