    Hello everyone!

    Me and Pans3r are hosting this competition because we wanna have fun. And why is it 80's? Because 70's were not good for motor industries and 60's cars BPs are hard to find.

    The main rules:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • Car has to be built between 1980 - 1990
    • Car has to be a road car.(no racing cars allowed)
    • You cant use older models.
    • Car have to be made as it came out of the factory(original rims and etc.)
    • Car has to be High-poly or mid-poly
    • You dont have to do interior
    • The deadline is 28.02.2008

    Secondary rules:
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    • You can show your progress on forums but you have to add this to your topic name [Good old 80's]
    • Please post the name of the car and a Real life pic here in this topic that you have chosen. So you prevent 2 indendical cars in the competition.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    That should be it.
    Happy modeling and good luck with your cars and please follow the rules.

    Nice idea of contest. I won't participate because of time.

    I'm not sure you've made the right choice about the high poly only sentence. Of course, it's up to you to decide rules, but there's several talented low poly modelers here.

    not quite sure I completely understand the first secondary rule... about the "You have to show atleast half made progress car in this topic from ur older models. That is to get this comp high quality"

    Does that mean we have to show a car we've modeled in the past, in this thread? Is that supposed to be like a way to weed out 'lesser' competitors? Not sure that's even necessary, as that's what the contest itself is there to determine.

    I'm thinking of entering with one of the following...

    1987 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe
    [​IMG]



    1989 Ford Taurus SHO
    [​IMG]



    1983 Dodge Aries (Coupe, not the sedan as shown)
    [​IMG]



    Or a 1988 Chevrolet Celebrity
    [​IMG]


    1989 Ford Aerostar
    [​IMG]


    I just need to sift through my reference pictures after gathering some more of them, and find out what I actually have enough pictures to create a 3d car with...

    If anyone is particularly attached to one of these, feel free to let me know.

    (I'll edit my post down to one pic once I figure out what is feasible for me to model)

    I'd really like to join, but deadline is too soon for me. I'd suggest 28.2.2008 as deadline, so i could join too.

    I recently left windows behind me (why? 'cause it's full of bugs) and now I need to learn new programs and how things basically work in Linux.

    Interesting idea, gotta think if I'd find time to do something. There were many nice cars made at 80's which would be nice to model. Ford Sierra, Volvo 480 or 740 or Ford T-Bird which MMM also mentioned.

    Yes it was. In 1989 was evolution with 195HP (later in 1989 - 205HP). 1990 was the last year of production (evolution II with 235HP). There is no difference in look between evo and evoII ( I think so:))

    Heeyy, great idea for a challange. 90s would be better, but the 80s were a great era too, so I would join 100% if I wouldnt have to finish other projects first.:?

    to MMM: The Taurus would be just awesome. I really would like to see it as midpolymodel. The Taurus station wagon is a great car too.:grin: Ive got some refpics of it here coz I wanted to model it someday. Hmm, just have seen its the 1993 one, but it shouldnt be too hard to find some of the 80s one.
