    C is great. Really liked it. Its a hard car to mess with. GM got it so right. Wonder how they'll update it 4 years after release.

    I liked the background change on E.

    I like the colours of D, but there are too many errors in the chop. The rear wheel has fender issues. The color selection is poor (jaggy).

    I'm with you on that one Rex. The wheels are way out of whack and for me that is enough not to get my vote. Personally I think your chop deserved 2nd over mine (although I'm grateful or the votes) as it is super clean.

    And to the guy who thought I should have left the driver out...I mean c'mon! That's Burt! It fit the theme so well! BOSS (Hogg)...who's the BOSS now - as in reference to the Mustang??? Am I the only one who got it? (Guess so, since I made it )

    Anyway, thanks everyone!

    congrats to the winners, excellent chop botsapper. my only complaint about entry B is the red showing through on the bottom of the bumper, otherwise that probably would've gotten my first place vote. as for entry D, nice colors, good clean stripes, but the white should be a bit darker around the bottom of the car. and when you do major color changes like that one, be sure not to miss all the little details, stuff like the vents in front of the rear wheel or the way the rear fender covers up part of the wheel. keep it up, obvious potential.

    I personally think mine (F) would have gone over better if this was DCXinsidenews.

    Thanks for the votes, guys.

    That was fun overlaying four different Cams' into this one. A blown '69 RS SS, a Baldwin Motion Phase III, a beautiful corporate wallpaper on top of the contest base pic. Took time to find good donors.

    Google images, baby.

    Till next.
