    How about changing the one scoop for a dual scoop like that on the Challenger??

    You can do it!!

    Do you, by any chance, know when Contest #2 starts? I'm thinking about entering - hope you don't mind!
    go for it - I love to compete - keeps me more creative! You just have to be a member to participate next time I think... they were pretty relaxed about that for this first one.

    But like you said, and we choppers all know, details means a lot more time. It's also amazing what walking away from a chop for a day or two reveals to you when you view it again with fresh eyes later.



    indeed - on this one I spent more time looking for a proper Dodge front end than doing the chop!

    And not to make excuses, but this wasn't a chop that I spent that much time on... a proof of concept to fit the timeline required for the holiday contest.

    thanks - I was definitely going for something that would make actual sense and not something completely off the wall or silly.

    Very well done! Looks good, definitely the best out of the bunch and as mentioned before, the most realistic.

    The Abarth chop started with the head start of a car people already desire, but failed to capitalise on it and offer something better than a Challenger. For that type of buyer, if the Abarth were sitting beside a Challenger and a buyer walked in I know what they would drive out in every time.

    thanks guys and yes the Abarth Challenger was done very well too right now I'm far out and ahead but I'm NOT counting chickens until the voting is over

    Very good photoshop job you did, I hope you'll win the contest but the Abarth Challenger is a fierce competitor as well.

    haah no - a little bigger - Fiat Bravo Active Sport and the wheels are from the defunct Caliber SRT-4

    and thank you!
