  1. What do you think of a little competition for Cadillac ATS variant designs?
  2. Oldsmoboi's Birthday Challenge 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.
  3. 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." Latemodel Chevrolet Monte Carlo SS.zip
  4. 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! --------------------------------------------- Some Picture Sources... -Serious Wheels -Net Car Show -See below for directions to access AutoDeadline[/b] Entries must be 800x600. Please submit your images as JPEG or GIF files. Deadline is potentially Sunday, August 9th @ 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time. --------------------------------------------- Good luck and have fun! *Instructions for accessing high-resolution images through AutoDeadline: Replace the bold, blue section of the URL...

  5. Welcome to the Design Competition #1 Voting thread! Remember, artists who entered must vote for someone other than themselves. Those that do not vote or vote for themselves will be assessed a two (2) point penalty. To vote, please just select your favorite design in the poll! Voting begins now and will potentially end Sunday, July 27th @ 11:59PM Eastern Standard Time. Only those votes cast during that time will be counted. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Good luck to all entrants!
  6. 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 !!! Good to be back !! ( 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.
  7. Welcome to Design Competition #3! Many people have complained that the American Big Three do not offer anything like the Subaru Impreza WRX STi or Mitsubishi EVO, and it's a very valid point. People want that extra get-up-and-go from AWD. Add in a turbocharged engine, and you get rocket-like acceleration off the line and through every apex. Currently there are no cars in the GM lineup that have these qualities, and this is what we want you to change... We want you to design a brand new compact sedan that will comfortably seat four but has a look even meaner than its power. We want this car to intimidate any competition even before the turbo spools and the clutch is dropped. Pushing 300 HP and 320 ft-lbs of torque through its advanced AWD system is already going to blow the doors off the competition, but we aren't stopping there. You never know, you might even find yourself revving up next to a GT-R in this car one day, so the goal is to tame Godzilla before the key even gets turned. Show us your skill and creativity and may the best designer win! Using any method you choose, you must design a Chevrolet to take on all AWD turbocharged sedans! --------------------------------------------- Some Picture Sources... -Serious Wheels -Net Car Show -See below for directions to access AutoDeadline Entries must be 800x600.

  8. 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. --------------------------------------------- Some Picture Sources... -Serious Wheels -Net Car Show -See below for directions to access AutoDeadline[/b] Entries must be 800x600.

  9. Hey, ...I set up a site for new design contests and ALL of you are welcome to join there to post your designs and comments !! here is the link : http://stingraysstudio.proboards.com/index.cgi hope to see you there ....rock on !! MRDETROITMETAL
  10. Welcome to Design Competition #4! So here we are at the end of 2010, and man, is the world ever different ! So many of us are being forced to re-create ourselves and find our way in this new reality. That goes for our favorite automaker as well. But listen. It isn't all bad. The end of one age is just the beginning of another, and all things are possible again. The shining star of the Alpha program, the begining of production for the Volt, whispers of Holden goodness coming our way once again. It's time to get creative once more, to adapt and overcome. To see things with new eyes and from new directions. Where inspiration comes from is always a mystery, and the next big thing could come from anywhere. And so, this design challenge comes from an unlikely direction. It comes from a classic SUV design that predates the very term "SUV". Back when that sort of vehicle had but two doors and was called a "four-by-four". Back when an untamed spirit of independence was a factor in vehicle choice. When a rugged, go-anywhere, vehicle was the ticket to adventure long after the road went to dirt and the night sky was nothing but stars. Your mission is to harness that spirit and wrap it in new clothing for 2011 and beyond. The job is to create a new K5 Blazer that can actually blaze the trail. Or, if you prefer, a K15 Jimmy that take you to a wilderness view that extends to the horizon in all directions. You may base your creation on the existing Tahoe/Yukon, or branch out in a new direction. But each entry must comply with the following: Two doors only (barn doors in the back are ok) Fully off-road capable True 4wd with a longitudinal engine Tough and purposeful without extra fluff The contest will end at midnight on January 20th. Entries can be in chop or sketch form - artist's choice. The prize for this contest is a Taxor men's Chevy Truck watch courtesy of CheerandGears.com. So have at it and design a replacement for my aging Tahoe! *In the interest of full disclosure, I have to tell you that I have been volunteered (willingly) to be the sole judge of all entries. --------------------------------------------- Some Picture Sources... -Serious Wheels -Net Car Show -See below for directions to access AutoDeadline --------------------------------------------- Good luck and have fun! *Instructions for accessing high-resolution images through AutoDeadline:[/b] Replace the bold, blue section of the following URL with the make/model/etc you're searching for: http://gm.wieck.com/forms/gm/*query?silverado&Source=all For example, replacing 'silverado' with 'lesabre' will bring up downloadable hi-res images of the Buick LeSabre.

  11. Welcome to Design Competition #5! Now that Chrysler has been joined by Fiat and released from the grip of its previous owners, or "partners," it has been given a nearly all-new line up of fresh vehicles. Almost every single vehicle on any Chrysler or Dodge showroom floor is new in one way or another. However, there is one vehicle that is missing: a compact sedan. Dodge tried fooling us into buying a compact crossover-type vehicle when they replaced the Neon with the Caliber in 2006. This car was nothing like the Neon and has gone unchanged for far too long. Seeing as though it is aged and was never able to sell like the Neon, it is time for a replacement that goes back to its roots. Your mission is to create a new compact sedan for Dodge that has best in class styling. This car must sell to the masses and show that Dodge means business, so don't be afraid to be unique and creative in its design. Other designs in this class very widely, from the very sleek Civic to the edgier Cruze, so show us what Dodge should do to replace the bulky Caliber with something new! You may base your creation on any compact Fiat vehicle or branch out in a new direction. But each entry must comply with the following: Four doors (though you may add an extra coupe or wagon sketch to accompany your sedan) Compact proportions Dodge family resemblance The contest will end at 11:59pm EST on March 1st. Entries can be in chop or sketch form - artist's choice. There are TWO prizes for this contest. The first prize, for the winning design picked by the three judges mentioned below, is: 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 Diecast 1/18 But on TOP of that, the user who refers the most number of people from OUTSIDE of C&G to compete in this contest, gets the $25 gift card to Amazon.com. You don't have to compete in the design contest itself to compete in the referral part of the contest. So if you're like me and posses artistic skills somewhere in the negative range, you can still compete to win something. If you do refer someone to C&G, make sure when they submit their entry, they put you in the post as the person who referred them. So have at it and design a replacement for the aging Caliber! It should also be mentioned that this contest will have three Administrator judges: Oldsmoboi, CSpec, and Northstar. --------------------------------------------- Some Picture Sources... -Serious Wheels -Net Car Show -See below for directions to access AutoDeadline --------------------------------------------- Good luck and have fun! *Instructions for accessing high-resolution images through AutoDeadline:[/b] Replace the bold, blue section of the following URL with the make/model/etc you're searching for: http://gm.wieck.com/forms/gm/*query?silverado&Source=all For example, replacing 'silverado' with 'lesabre' will bring up downloadable hi-res images of the Buick LeSabre.

  12. The votes are in... and we have a winner! We had many great entries and the voters surely had a difficult time choosing their favorites. After all entries were in, Camino couldn't have said it better when he stated, "This contest proves that small cars don't have to be ugly." Let's hope the industry takes note. Also, I found it very interesting that there were quite a few different ways that entries were created. Coincidentally, each of the top three entries were made an entirely different way, but were still able to convey a very good design. That being said, let's list the winners... The original contest submission thread is here where you can browse all of the entries. 1st Place Dodgefan with his 3D rendering: 2nd Place TurboJett with his drawing: 3rd Place NOS2006 with his chop: Congratulations to Dodgefan for winning this 2006 Dodge Viper SRT-10 1:18 Diecast compliments of C&G: Thanks again to all contestants and stay tuned for C&G's Design Competition #6!
  13. Whew! What a job this turned into! When this contest began, I expected a few entries and an easy decision when picking a winner. Instead, the contest has turned into one of the best in recent memory here at C&G. Not only was there great participation, but the entered designs were of excellent quality. I am very pleased that picking a winner became harder as each new entry was posted. What a great effort by all who participated. Early on, member SeanLoh got things going with a chop that established the GMC All-Terrain HD concept as a base for designs from other resident artists. His entry set a tone that carried through as a theme for the duration of the contest. It was also the only design that dared to go fully topless. Next up to tweak this theme was our most prolific C&G chopper, MDM with a pair of very nicely-rendered Chevy K5s that hit the DNA of the Blazer dead on. Just when I thought that we might have defined the direction for the K5, Black-Knight posted a pair of sketches depicting a trimmer, leaner, vision of the 2-door SUV. It's sharp lines and Grand-Cherokee proportions gave me pause. Here we had a design that exemplified the simplicity and no-nonsense ethic laid-out in the contest parameters. It was time to start weighing the entries on multiple criteria. Speaking of the design parameters of the contest, NOS and MDM demonstrated just what happens when you forget the rules with a couple of decent chops that just didn't qualify as K5 Blazers. In an impressive effort, Z28luvr01 refined the All-Terrain theme into a K15 Jimmy that kept the faith with a GMC branded beast that had Roger calling it "game over". But there was yet more to come. At this point, the "KFap" Blazer offered a bit of levity and a lack of structural integrity in a C&G-typical absurdity tangent. After that bit of fun, and a Ford-based entry by MDM, the Dodgefan onslaught began with the first of his three entries. This wholly realistic rendering depicted a K5 that should be on Chevy lots everywhere right now. It featured a quickly controversial upright "B" pillar that had some crying foul. As an owner of a last gen 2-door Tahoe, what I saw was a solution to a very real blindspot in my own SUV. It may not have the style that the larger, canted, pillar does - but it would be a godsend for visibility. This entry also featured a most welcome description of DF's concept. Enter the wildcard. Leave it to Blackviper to challenge all pre-conceived notions of what a Blazer should be! In a wonderfully-detailed sketch, he stretched the imagination and left me thinking of alternative platforms and drivetrains, materials and surfaces and a new concept overall for the Blazer nameplate. This original, and creative take on a new K5 had me thinking of just how the concept could be made steel (or carbon fiber and aluminum). I'll have more to say about this one later. Enter Dodgefan V. 2.0 - easily the nominee for best adherence to the rules of this contest. If that were the only criteria, it would have been the hands-down choice to win. Based on the Colorado it is as current and producible as DF's first entry. But it takes the idea af a basic off-road capable machine as specified in the rules to the exact spot I was hoping this contest would lead. "No-nonsense" is on full display here. The only downside is the dated design of the Colorado on which this entry is based. I'll have more on this one too later. DF's third design takes us back to the All-Terrain concept once again. It also takes chances with both the door/b-pillar shaping, and the wheelbase. Ther are elements to this design that I love, and it has me thinking of other variants. However, the wheelbase runs counter to what has always been a major advantage of the Blazer - its manueverability. Finally, NOS offered up a quick sketch that immediately had me flashing back to BV's excellent concept. It also had me considering the only Achilles heel of DF's second effort. A fusion of these three would, in my mind, create a Blazer that fits the times and does homage to the original. I would love to see the synthesis of those three efforts explored to result. Such a design would have been the hands-down winner here. However, the contest has to culminate in the naming of a winner from among the designs entered. So, I spent some considerable time looking for the design that best balanced heritage and future and concept with reality. I narrowed the field to three finalists. They are: BV's convention-challenging vision. If you haven't enlarged this one, do it! The detailing is flat out awesome. DF's second effort: And Z's entry: There is only a whisker of difference in the merit of these three, and they represented a very tough choice. But, in the end, I went with the most fully realized design, and the one that best balanced all of the factors involved to create a 2-door SUV for the immediate future. Congratulations Z, the watch is yours!

  15. So my prize arrived in time for my birthday, which is pretty sweet. The model is just awesome. Amazing detail. From the head and tail light elements which replicate the elements of the real car to the badge, molded "viper" on the rear bumper. Painted coolant overflow tank, wires, wipers, brake calipers and rotors, chrome exhaust tips and even real carpet. The seatbelt buckles are even chromed and the detail inside is so good I can tell that it has an RBQ stereo. Even the underside gets detailing, with molded and silver painted control arms, exhaust, and plates. I love it! Thanks Drew! For anyone thinking about entering the next competition, prizes like this are a real motivator. Also took some photos with my old Viper GTS model I've had for many years. The difference in quality and detail really shows. Both are awesome just the same.
