Design Comps Award


MRDETROITMETAL

Recommended Posts

Having been "offline" for the last month or so as my home office is being remodeled, I have just today reestablished a new ISP connection, and I needed to say this to Drew & all the C&G members, aside from a big THANK YOU,..that the "trophy" Toronado which you sent to me, for winning the birthday comp, is absolutely fantastic !!

It has found a place in the TOP of my "trophy case" next to the Dale Earnhart Z-06 & my racing (SCCA) awards. The competition on that was really GOOD, and I look forward to MORE valuable competitions here now that Z06 is working the contests.

I ENCOURAGE EACH OF YOU HERE TO REALLY GET INVOLVED WITH THESE NEXT COMPS...OR I WILL HAVE TO KICK YOUR ASS ...AGAIN !!! :neenerneener:

Good to be back !!

:breakdance:

( oh, BTW, the TORO is Black with a Burgundy interior...just beautiful !!!...I will have to post up a picture of it for you here, once I figure out my new computer setup. )

THX again. :smilewide:

Also..I have posted a link to C&G contests from my website, as Z06 suggested. Hopefully that will bring a few more people in here for the comps, as my site dose 60-80,000 hits a day from car enthusiasts. I hope that will help a bit here too....& THX again for the Trophy.

Maybe we can use this thread for people who win the comps to say THX to the C&G members too ?

:breakdance:

      Welcome to Design Competition #1!




      Modern design has strayed from the lines and ultimate beauty that models of yesterday possessed. In today's world, you see either too many lines that don't flow together or not enough lines to define any character. However, now you're the designer. It's your turn now.

      We want you to revive a GM vehicle from before 1990 that needs revival. It doesn't matter if you sketch, Photoshop, or render your entry because however you make it will be perfectly fine by us as long as it meets the guidelines. So show us your skill and creativity and may the best designer win!


      You may design any GM model produced before 1990.

      Contest open till December 1st 2009 at 11:59pm


      Since I was a kid, I've always felt that Pontiac should have gotten an E-body, but a sportier version. You can see hints of sportiness in the Buick Riviera T-Type and the Oldsmobile Toronado XSC. What I want to see is what a 1979 - 1985 Pontiac E-Body would have looked like had GM produced one. So sketch, draw, or chop me up a car. Any 1979-1985 Eldorado, Toronado, Seville, or Riviera is an eligible base.
      I'll be judging the entries myself.
      Every entrant will receive a C&G related prize for entering the contest.
      The grand prize is a 1:18 scale model 1966 Toronado
      The rules:
      1. The contest is open to registered Cheers and Gears members with a valid email address and an account in good standing (not suspended for bad behavior).
      2. Multiple entries are allowed, but only one prize per entrant.
      3. The picture must be posted in this thread using the upload feature.
      4. URL links to other websites will not be accepted.
      The prize details:

      Brand new 1:18 scale diecast model of 1966 Oldsmobile Toronado diecast model car by Road Signature.
      Has steerable wheels.


      Brand new box.


      Rubber tires.


      Made of diecast with some plastic parts.


      Detailed interior, exterior, engine compartment.


      Dimensions approximately L-10.5, W-4.25, H-3.25 inches.

      As many of you know already, I am a member at iracing.com. Iracing is now allowing members to paint their cars and use them in the game and I thought it would be fun to have a Cheers & Gears car to drive around. I have attached the template that needs to be used in a zip file. The template is a Photoshop document and here are the rules from iracing:
      "The cars have to be 1024x1024. The suits and helmets 512x512. If they are the wrong size they are ignored.
      The final tga should be saved as a 24 bit tga. I would also strongly recommend turning on RLE compression on the TGA to help cut the size of the texture down."

      Welcome to Design Competition #2!




      At one time, they said the Corvette's little brother was the Camaro, which was fitting. Then they said it was the Cobalt SS, which was really pushing the envelope. Let's really give them something to talk about... by designing a true "little brother" to the Corvette, right down to the name!

      We want you to design a brand new car off the Kappa (or Kappa II) platform that will function as a miniature Corvette. Ideally, this car would possess many Corvette (and Stingray) cues but, keep in mind that this is a brand new model to the Chevrolet stable!. Basically, this would be the small, lightweight, 2.0L turbocharged version of the Corvette. So show us your skill and creativity and may the best designer win!


      You must design a new Kappa-sized Chevrolet Stingray!
