    2050 Gto - Upv

    Here's my first one, may go back into it and refine it some though.
    My thinking is that in the "future" public transport will still not be what it should so to counter this we will be taxed for road usage (UPV = Ultra Privileged Vehicle) so anytime you take to the street you'll pay a road usage fee. So I thought, if you're gonna pay the fee/tax, better have somethin' worth spendin' it on.
    Also, wheels and tires will become one unit, a glass reinforced urethane will probably be used. Hope ya like.

    This is the kind of thing I was looking for. And I like the explanation that goes with it.

    That being said, there's something wrong with the wheels. The front wheel seems to not have the hub centered properly.
    The rear wheel seems angled outwards as if there is 4 wheel steering.

    Imagine a little box on your dashboard that lights up everytime you turn the ignition on to let someone in some far away office know that you're driving your car. It'll tell them how far you've driven from your primary residence, what roads were taken, and what time you drove at then they'll determine your "road usage fee". Not pretty.

    very nice design. Looks about 45 years into the future. Is the engine up front?

    Back in the 70s, Chrysler had some really funky names for paint colors, PlumCrazy, SubLime, TorRed, ect...so I just took on one of those. Actually it's a play on the word torrid meaning extreme.
    Citric Acid -
    Germany has a satellite system that monitors commercial truck traffic in the same manner I listed above and London's "congestion" charging scheme just seems to get worse without improving mass transit as it was supposed to.
