    I took the liberty to create this thread, simply to get your feedback. What to chop, what to change/improve, etc... Got something to say, good or bad? Say it here!

    I've thought it might be good to have some rotation in the cars we chop. For example: Small car, Truck/Van, Big car, Sports car..? Would be easier for the mods to choose the cars too?

    We have the photoshop help forums for asking questions. I don't think I remember you posting an entry, but we do have the "Photoshopped Cars." thread that can help. Post your chops there to get some suggestions for what to do.

    i agree with this.
    we should have it so that some weeks u have to try and be creative such as this weeks (48) with the little van.
    and for other weeks just making a car look good and so on.

    p.s can we post sugestion pics for upcoming weeks?

    That's pretty much the point of it, yes.

    We can't really go with a "regular" schedule... Boredom would settle in, people would participate only when certain type of cars would be introduced, etc... I like the "surprise" mode we've got right now.

    haha, I know some poeple have tried it before, with no success. however, I think that people would pay more attention and try it if we made some in YOUR weekly competition, punk rock. its the main attraction here.

    That's a good idea Cano.

    But PR once said, there was no point in chopping already awesome peices of automotive history.

    Amen!

    :tup: :tup: :tup: :tup: Good idea Cano!!! One only has to pick up a Hot Rod mag to see the awsome possibilites that older cars have for chopping. C'mon PR, if we can have a Saab in the weekly, why not a classic car?

    The only problem with using vintage car is that it's hard to find suitable pictures. You'll notice i've been using press pictures since day one, mostly for their sharpness and quality. The fact that most people immediately think musclecar when thinking about an old car doesn't help... Maybe i'll throw in an Aston, or a Porsche, or a Maserati pretty soon, if i can find a good picture. ;)

    I'm asking everyone here, what would you guys like to see for the 1 year anniversary? I need something out of the ordinary, something really, really incredible.

    I will help you fing them man, dont worry. I have quite a few that are very suitable, and besides, I dont think muscle car, I think classic. Id love to do any of the cars mentioned, plus some more. hell, how about a Ford Tempo? or a danged bentley? or something really odd, like, say... a Yugo! there is nothng wrong in slapping an intercooler front fascia to a chevelle, or cutting the fenders off of a 48 rolls royce. and yeah, I know that not all people will do it, but there will still be income. and it will pretty much be original. yeah, maybe many people lack the ability to chop this, but by giving them stuff like this to work with, they just learn (: hey, what then would be the point of chopping, say, ANY of the cars we have had here? not all vintage cars are awesome pieces of machinery neither, some of them are utter crap.

    as for the one year stuff, I might tink about something really, really weird.

    i would like a car like an evo or subaru that already looks good and choopers will have to be careful what they do to it because they may ruin the car. and i would like some Japanese cars like 350Z's ( very hard car to chop unless you're good with airbrushing) and some skylines or silvias etc.

    We've done an RS4, i'll see what i can do about an RS6. Most of the RS6 press pics i've seen were either of a black car, or a dark blue car, which isn't the best color to chop.

    We didn't. We didn't do a GT-R either, and there's a good reason. The press pics for those cars suck ass, and until i can find a suitable one, it doesn't look like it'll happen. Shame, really.


    I've got a few new cars in the works, like the C6 'Vette and the new SLK, but i think what we'll do next week will be awesome. :D

    You know, PR, we could always do something outside of cars. Like some buses, Pickups, Tractor Trailers, etc...

    Just a thought.

    How about a van? Like a Chevy Express or a Ram Van? Any readers of Hot Rod will recalll that in a recent isssue they had a couple of concept illustrations for vans that looked pretty cool (pro touring, gasser look, etc.) and I'd love to see what the creative minds here could cook up.
