    Contest #123: SKY

    Take the picture below and modify it any way that you want. Change colors, looks, background, etc...

    The changes can be serious or silly. The changes don't have to make the car more desirable, they just have to make it different.

    You are showing off your creativity and your chopping skills.

    You must use the original picture as your starting point. Try to keep some semblance of the original pic.

    You can make up to 2 entries! But if you do, they have to be significantly different from each other. Please send me final copies only. NO revisions after entry. Once you've entered, that's your entry.

    If more than 20 entries are received, I might not use "2nd" entries. So please indicate which one you prefer, in case of that scenario.

    Chopping is anonymous!:

    Do NOT post your images here in this thread. Instead, E-mail them to: [email protected].
    Do not send a link to the picture. Send the picture itself. Please send it in JPG format. Please do not write your name anywhere in your picture.
    In your e-mail (but not your picture) please include your user name, even if you think that I know who you are.

    You have until Thursday at Midnight to submit your entries, so there is no need to rush right away. Quality takes time. Voting will start on Friday.

    Same rule in effect. If you enter, you MUST vote. Contestants that do not vote will be penalized.


    Here's the pic to modify:

    Best thing that can be done to that is to change the color.

    I disagree - the Solstice is close to perfect - this is too forced to fit the body, and trying too hard to look cool.

    I will not have time to participate - but Sky is not perfect .. far from it.

    I second that.
    As good as it looks in pictures, it is 1000x better when seen in person. It is indeed perfect.

    We don't get those here (OZ), kinda similar to an opel speedster

    It looks a bit like a conservative Z4 at that angle... well conservative for chris bangle

    Both are nice, of course, but I much prefer the Sky. Just because it's a Saturn doesn't make it cheap (this could NOT be applied in 2004 back, cause all of their cars then were UGLY!!) They sky has a nice ring to it, even though they are practically the same car.


    The picture has an ugly color of yellow, I finished my entry and changed my color. Hopefully, Rex Raider got my entry (if so Rex, please post here cause remember what happened with the Caliber thing.

    If there are no stupid questions, then what kind of questions do stupid people ask? Do they get smart just in time to ask questions?

    I figured as much... but lacked the motivation to look it up... nice looking car though, goes against the usual american (and Australia) 'Biggest V8 that will fit...and if it doesnt fit make it bigger' theory... which is good to keep things interesting.

    That color looks faded in the picture but in real life that shade has lots of pop to it and sets off the car nicely.
