Well well, now that we have a few members posting their rides, we may as well make a little ROTM contest for these guys.


First lets setup the rules.


1. The vehicle MUST be your OWN personal vehicle, no proof, no entry.
2. You MUST have a Gallery in the Members Rides Section (where you're reading this thread).
3. The vehicle nominated MUST be a daily driver (or seasonal).
- IE: grandma's revenge is allowable.
4. Nominations are not to be requested of by the owner of the vehicle or nominated by the owner.
- IE: Hondaman cannot PM everyone on the board to Nominate Grandma's Revenge
- Nor can he Nominate her himself.
5. The Winner of the Month, cannot be renominated again for the entire year.
6. Any Winners in one year, may not be nominated in the direct following year, but may return in the second year.
7. Nominations open on the 15th of the previous month, and threads are ONLY to be created by mods/admin. PERIOD.
8. Rides will need One nomination and a 'Second' to be eligible for the competition. Unless there weren't enough seconds, in which the first 5 total entries are elected to fill the empty entry spots.
9. Nominators are only allowed to Nominate and Second Once per month. Additional will be void.
10. Once 5 rides are Nominated and 'Seconded' Voting will then commence until the 2nd last day of the month.
11. Nominated Ride owners may submit images to place in Voting Thread. 1-2 thumbnailed or non Frame breaking images (no resizables)


*. Winner will have his/her ride posted in a ROTM section on the RHS of the main page for the entire month he/or she has won.


The first Nomination Thread will be opened December 15, 2007 for the first ROTM winner declared January 1, 2008.

Rules Changed for the ROTM starting with April
1. ROTM nominations for 1 week. Only the first 5 with the most nominations will be selected for the final rotm.
2. Members who wish to nominate, may only NOMINATE or 2ND ONE Ride only.. .. You may not do both.

These rules have been changed as there has been complaint that the ROTM nominations happen too quickly for everyone to have their say. [Timezone Problems,etc.]


Thank you for your cooperation with the new rules.



If there is question on validity of a user's ownership- this will be dealt with case by case.

Questions or comments?

This should be interesting. Glad to see my idea is easily coming to Life....

I'm not sure if I'll enter my Baja soon or not. With all the damn snow and cold weather, I'm finding it hard to wanna wash and detail.

Though the snow would make for some good eye candy.
We'll see

Don't you think a year of not being allowed in is a little excessive? maybe 3 months imo

speed.. once we have 12 winners, we have a ROTY as well. cant be fair if someone won 2 or 3 times in a year?

get nominated by other users., however requesting to be nominated will void a nomination as per rules.

not ONLY that, you must have a thread in the members ride forum, so that members can see your car..

read the first post in this thread for most of the rules.

If we're going to leave my Nova up on the mainpage we should at least change it to one of my newest pics.... Just for the fact that my car has been on the mainpage for nearly half a year or more, it wins NFSCars Ride of the Year by Default, so all you guys can eat it;)

03-18-2009, 05:23 PM
no- its going to be replaced with a picture of the nova on fire.

or random member ride once we get to it.

or random member ride once we get to it.

I like this idea.

I think in order to restart the car of the month deal we need a little more participation, a few more cars and such. Maybe we'll try again in a couple of months. Towards the end of the year things just started dying off.

I think it died off around the same time that mr. sting ray was admitting his car was not even his.

Yeah, that was a major downer....
I think waiting a few more months will be a great idea, because by then, a couple of us may have some newer rides worthy of showing off;)

Sinister
03-19-2009, 06:15 AM
Only way I'd have a new ride is if prices went down 70% on NEW vehicles. I had been looking awhile ago but I'm not going to be buying anytime soon.

MuscleCarFreak
03-19-2009, 06:19 AM
Well, I figure alot of guys will need to start doing some big shit to their exsisting vehicles, or something.... I mean, We can only vote for the same cars for so long.
The only cars that keep getting mods and shit are Rob's Silvia, Speed's Jeep, and Imprezzive's Legacy.... So those will definitely be getting votes.
The other votes will more than likely be pitty votes, because of a story, or some damage that was fixed... lol

We may need to hope some people will be getting some kickass rides within the year, otherwise, this contest is over.

Texhnolith
03-19-2009, 07:02 AM
Looking at the ride of the year voting and the amount of people reacting to my post.. hardly anyone will vote for my Silvia.

As you said. lots of car seem to be getting votes cuz they are damaged, sold or just because they like the person better or so :P
I bet if i drove a beat up old impreza (not even a GTT) it would get more votes then my silvia.

Guess you haven't noticed my engine build/swap that's been in the making for a long time now...or my 5 speed swap (how many on here have actually swapped out an auto car to a stick?)...or my new wheels...or my front spring swap...gonna be ripping the old engine out this Saturday. New one should be in next Sat with a freshly cleaned/painted engine bay around it and hopefully some chassis dyno numbers in early May. Enough mods for ya? ;)

Oh thats right, my car isn't a Camaro, Mustang, or import so nobody cares! :P
