lol, you made a car website out of your xanga <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> i was gonna do that, but i changed my mind in case i ever wanted to make a site from scratch. as for the drawings, they're pretty good, but the exterior drawing has perpective mistakes (mainly the wheels are two small). they're good though, i look forward to more drawings from you <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0">

Yeah, theres a lot of perspective problems with the car (compare the two headlights). <p>I moved my drawings from FSI_Nation to my other site: <A HREF="http://www.xanga.com/home.aspx?user=AznFsi325" TARGET="_blank">http://www.xanga.com/home.aspx?user=AznFsi325</A> <p>I'm about to finish a compact sports sedan. I only have one pic for it though.

i like the L4, although it's a bit square. i'm guessing kalooha motors competes with mercedes and BMW? i made a brand like that too, it's called shannon and it's on the second or third page of this section i think, and my naming system is somewhat similar to yours. of course that's a coincidence <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

6R? 4R? aaaah, that's identical to shannon's naming system! when did you come up with these names? i've had a 6R since early 2004. i'm not accusing you of plagarism or anything, it was obviously coincidental. but i've had the name for awhile. to prove it, here's a thread on the old carspyshots from august 2004 where i mention the 6R: <p><A HREF="http://carspyshots.proboards2.com/index.cgi?board=sketch&action=display&thread=1091844372" TARGET="_blank">http://carspyshots.proboards2....44372</A><br>nobody needs to change any names, i just wanted to point that out <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/beerchug.gif" BORDER="0"> i like the L4 by the way

Haha, I bet it's coincidental. I didn't find this site until a week ago. I didn't know why I named it 6R. I needed a performance division for my cars and my options were M, S, R, T or X. I thought of changing it, but I didn't know what to :P.

Well, I think it would be better if I change the name anyways. The L's were initially a temporary name for the cars because I'm a terrible namer :P lol.

ha, so am i. probably my oldest car name, the montgomery SV100, i came up with when i was 6 or 7 (i think; sometime around there). SV stood for "Sport Vehicle" and the 100 denoted that it was the first in a series of SV models (i was going to have a new SV every year; there would be an SV100, then SV200, SV300, etc.) actually, to be even more specific, the exact name was originally SV-100, then over time it changed to SV 100, and today it's SV100 without spaces or dashes. if anyone cares, which i doubt. anyway, i dropped the whole 100, 200, 300 idea (i actually wanted to have a naming system like lexus or M-B but had no idea what all those numbers stood for at the time so i made up my own system). so anyway, now the SV100 is a humble midsize sedan, and the SV and 100 parts both have no meaning anymore. <p>now, back to kalooha. i can't wait for future models, when are you gonna show some? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://images.zeroforum.com/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

haha - sounds just like me. i wanted a naming system like Lexus but couldn't find a good one.<p>I'm done with a minivan ( <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/ylsuper.gif" BORDER="0"> ) and a midsize SUV. They're currently in the pre-Sharpie stage so once I finish, I'll make up the specs, scan it and post it on.<p>I won't be here for the next two weeks though! I'm going to NYC <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/2cool.gif" BORDER="0"> ! So I hope I can finish both vehicles and post it up before the trip.

W00t! After an estimated 3 hours of non-stop work, I completed the complete specs sheet for my three companies: Kalooha, Elisa and an un-named performance division. That's a total of 24 cars! I probably made many factual errors but after staring 3 hours into a computer monitor, I didn't bother double-checking it.<p> <B>Kalooha Motors Major Competitors:</B> Acura, Audi, BMW, Cadillac, Infiniti, Lexus, Lincoln, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo.<p> <B>Elisa Motors Major Competitors:</B> Honda, Nissan, Toyota, Ford, Hyundai, etc etc etc.<p> <B>Unnamed Performance Division Major Competitors:</B> Defunct MG, AMG, M, Irmscher, etc.

wow, that's impressive. i've done something similar with my montgomery lineup, there are 7 different models there and 6 of them have spec sheets (i have spec sheets for every montgomery, but one of them wasn't printed out and i couldn't print it at the time). it's mostly in the metric system though i think. i made spec sheets for shannon too, but i haven't scanned them yet. anyways, i can't wait to see more cars; it looks like your made up brands are direct competition to my made up brands, how nice <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/icon11.gif" BORDER="0">

Other competitors include big-looking vans such as the Asian-market Toyota Estima and Alphard. I forgot to include the Honda Stepwagon.
