Hi everyone!

This week's contest is all about a retro revival of any car brand that is long gone, like Duesenberg, Delahaye, Pontiac and Saab (Not completely sure, but it is allowed to make one).

You can choose any image of your choice to make a car for a discontinued brand. You can choose any base picture you want to make a Duesenberg, Delahaye, Alta, Hispano-Suiza, Talbot-Lago, Saab, Matra, Pontiac, Delage, Ruxton, Brewster, Auburn, Horch, Cord, Delage, Packard or any other brand that doesn't exist anymore. What i personally like, is that the photoshop has styling cues of the original cars, a two-tone paintjob, chrome parts like in the old times, just to make the chop some extra retro.

Try your best everyone!

Contest will be closed Febryary 14th 2012!

Only a car brand, not a car model?

Are we supposed to chop one of these old models or can we for example take some current model and make it look like a reincarnation of one of these old ones?

I'm pretty sure it's up to You, as long as it remains modern feeling :)

That's the idea about this contest.

I had made an Renault R5, but that's not a brand that was discontinued, so I need to make a new one fast.

I've made an fast photoshop of the Daf. It's an old dutch brand that have produced car till 1975, now they only make trucks. And they can produce in the Dutch (Mitsubishi) plant that will be sold and that used to be a Daf factory.

I'd have love to have seen the vintage Bonneville grille more obviously incorporated on the front of the new car (i.e. the shape)

Sounds interesting! I also have an idea: how about a contest about the Truck-only manufacturer (like Kenworth, DAF, MAN etc.) making a car ?

But here's a trick, you HAVE to name it after a Caribbean island.

I've keyed with that truck idea last year making pickup trucks, didn't go so well.

Here is a contest entry from an old member here.... This is late due to a technical difficulty in refreshing my registration.
Will this still be accepted?

I've seen this post now, your entry is now included in the chops here. - Niko Bellic - CSS Moderator.

Thanks!

I was reffering to the miniatures. At least I can see only 4.

I can only see 4 if I'm logged out, but if I log in I can see them all.

I see the problem, because 2 of the images are originally attachments, which disappear of the list when not logged in. But you need to log in anyway for voting.

Davidesign - It looks awful but it's funny and I like it :P

Porsche-Power - I was thinking of something along those lines but the Mini was never going to make a good saloon :/

Afterrace - Fit, although I don't think you changed much..

Thanks, S2... Humor was my full intention. I looking at old styling elements and imagining what the current cars would look like if were still stuck with them.
Here it is even uglier or cooler, depending on your outlook.

I may try to get a little more serious on some future contests.
