    Contest #167: Simple Van

    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:

    This can really become the pimp mobile.

    When I was at the local auto show last year, they had some running in the low 40s with all the amenities, TVs, and etc.
    I'll make a new sig. Later.

    You need to solicit prior contestants because this is a great pick.

    I haven't done one in months and thought I'd give this a shot...then ran out of time so I didn't send anything. Maybe I'll have another day or two now? Winter's coming...always more time in winter for me. Though I noticed my skills (what I thought I once had) are seriously lacking. Not like riding a bike...

    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?

    Note to all:

    Again, due to few entries, I will start the voting Sunday!
    You have today and tomorrow to come up with something.
    As it stands, get an entry in now, and you're guaranteed a podium finish.

    I've not even tried an entry for the van but I will if I get a g-r-e-a-t idea. Which I haven't thussofar

    is it just my extremely strange and convoluted thinking that: though you're highly likely to get a podium finish because there are less entries to contest for a podium finish, you are now less likely to get a podium finish because more people realise you can get a podium finish and thus more entries will be received to compete for a podium finish?!?!?!?

    I've even confused myself thinking that.

    There are. I'm having an issue with my hosting site, and can't get the entries online.
