    Why do some people not get bonus points while others get 5 or 6?

    armstrgong, bonus points (5) are for when you enter as well as vote. extra bonus points are given by other voters, for example, if my vote were:
    "
    a
    h
    d
    e
    "
    then entry 'e' would be awarded 1 bonus point (.5 points)


    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------



    could i get some feedback on my chop? what was off, what didn't fit, etc.

    any comments would be appreciated.

    Problem was, the car was too "hip". The contest was to modify cars that WOULDN'T be modified by anyone. The CTS has lots of possibilities. Way more so than a minivan or Buick sedan.

    Your chop was good (wheels were a little too big), butjust didn't hit the nail on the he3ad as far as the theme of the contest goes.

    The new generation of A&S styled Cadillacs was an attempt at lowering the demograhic's age. And it worked for the most part with the Escalade and CTS. So, now that Cadillacs are showing up in Rap videos, there is more of a chance that they will get blinged out.

    I have never seen a "hip" Saturn Relay.

    BUT, saturn, being the GM 'import-fighter' , would be MUCH more likely to be riced than a $40,000+ cadillac.

    As evidenced by the voters, and as stated myself, I disagree.

    I agree 100 % on Rex's comments and critiques, Cadi's are the new "in" thing. I just wish Buick followed in it's footsteps to go towards a younger generation, that IMO is the only thing that will save it. Great Job Everyone, and as always Congrats to the winners.
