Last August I entered this contest by Spectre Performance where they wanted people to design a 1970 Ford Maverick for them. My design has made the finals and I sure could use your votes. My design has a 7M-GTE drivetrain in the Maverick, along with the MKIII seats, while the rest of it has the 70's Muscle Car look. I think this would be an awesome way to represent the MKIII Community, plus, the car is being built in LA, so they would include a bit of work for DriftMotion.

If I win, I will get to drive the car on the entire Hot Rod Power Tour next summer!


Here are my renderings, which have not been posted yet, and a link to the contest with a full description of my design, I'm entry Number 5.

http://www.spectreperformance.com/contest/

It says 5 votes per e-mail address, so please vote, and lets try and get a MKIII drivetrain in Hot Rod magazine!


Oh yeah,
I painted it blue just for Jay!:biglaugh:

Thanks a bunch guys, it sure would be cool to see this thing get built. Plus to drive it on the Tour would be pretty awesome too.

I knew you would like that color blue SupraHero! I actually love blue myself!

Promises, promises......................here's a great idea, the Florida MKIII crowd can drive in to Mississippi the 1st day (after they pick up Reign) and meet up with all of you at Jugodegolf's place, and then you all caravan in to Houston together! The party will be at SupraRich's motorhome all weekend with Fstoy and Kelly handling the grill! I'll be the one pouring the drinks!:biglaugh:

Voted NUMBER 5!!! Like Johnny 5!!!!!

Your so die hard 7m, even Johnny knows it! :biglaugh:
Thanks for the votes Nickie, and it's not that I'm so 7M Die Hard, a 2JZ would have been a lot nicer swap, but also quite a bit more expensive. Below is the judging criteria, so I just tried to design something that fit the bill.

JUDGING CRITERIA
20% Creativity - The overall vision of the design
20% Ingenuity - The level of inventiveness and originality in the design
20% Practicability - The achievability of the design
20% Affordability - Best bang for the buck
20% Best use of Spectre Performance's products:

You said bitchin.
You get my vote.

Did no one tell them that 1/18/07 is in the past?
Or have they discovered the secrets of time travel??

Just did my submissions.
Always been a fan of your work, Lance.
If I am not mistaken, you have done some pretty cool custom jobs on bikes as well, and you can airbrush.
I've done some custom paint work (in the middle of one now), but I haven't done as much as you have.
I'd be interested to seeing any links that you might have for custom bikes, if you have them uploaded.

Whatever this project entails, I know you are the man to make it happen.

Happy holidays and I'll keep an eye out to see that you won.

PS: If you have the ESPN airing of the last Hot Rod Power Tour (the one you were in) host it up on Rapidshare for us to see it.
