    Contest #128: Equinox Sport!

    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:

    Nice one. I still don't know why they just don't call it an SS. It would match in with the other vehicles.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    Apparently, Chevrolet wants its SS variant to REALLY mean Super Sport. That sort of means that they don't want to have almost every model to have that designation. For the '07 model year, the Cobalt Sedan, the Cobalt Coupe (not the Supercharged), the Malibu, the Malibu Maxx, the Impala, the Monte Carlo, the Silverado Classic, and the Trailblazer all have SS variants. That's 8 models. Chevy said that a Malibu SS won't appear when it gets redesigned, and I really don't blame them.
    Sport is a better name for those vehicles that have been slightly beefed up, such as the Equinox. The Sport designation will probably be assigned to the HHR when it brings the more powerful engine to the table.

    A note to all design contest participants - if I pound you with penalties or point out that you can't enter one of your designs, please do not think that this is a personal bash on you as a designer. I am merely enforcing the rules that I have set down.

    good move, so it should really mean something

    think of someone that you consider to be of average intelligence...
    half the worlds population is stupider than that person.

    Isuzu doesn't have a version of the Equinox, they have a Trailblazer.
    Suzuki has the XL7 which is a theta.

    Stupid two faced chevy should have seen the SS confusion the minute they released the Malibu... then they got really wacky and did the Cobalt sedan and coupe.... that one really makes no sense! I have a Cobalt SS/SC and am constantly having my car confused for the 2.4L SS in conversations... oh well, GM is learning slowly.
