Lightbulb AF Lowrider contest!

Okay, the rules are below and remember: It's for fun!!!
1. Everyone starts out with a kit and post a pic of their kit on Feb 1st and 2nd.

2. The build begins officially on Feb1st and ends Feb 28th.

3. On Feb 28th you post the picture of whatever you have completed to date and it gets judged in another thread by all AF members.

4. Any year lowrider, any scale, any make/model.

5. Anything goes, hoppers, stationary, any accessories, any color.

6. Must post at least 5 pictures every week of your progress, more are encouraged.

7. Everyone posts in the same thread and at the end of the contest everyone posts 3 pictures of their finished car in a separate *completed* contest thread.

Progress thread is HERE.
Now get started!!

Re: AF Lowrider contest!

It's just an idea for a chance to have a little fun; the idea kind of popped up all of a sudden as a friendly contest between slk320 and myself and kind of snowballed from there! . Have fun with it! Life's too short!

Re: AF Lowrider contest!

This should be good. The contest is going to be interesting because everyone has a different opinions on lowriders. Some like plain and clean some like super wild.

Good idea nonetheless.

I won't have a kit or more wheels until at least 1 month away, that sucks. I want to get a good model in and the next one I'm building I plan to put my best in.
I'd be happy to help out though Antonio If you don't get enough entries within the month then could we put this contest 1 month away starting time?

What will, exactly, qualify as a lowrider?

I've had a 1959 Impala project on deck that I was going to do in a retro-fusion sled style, with some mild shaving, a cherry burgundy paint scheme, a mildly tuned version of the kit 348 (have some stellar Offenhauser intake and exhaust parts for it) and some Pegasus Hobbies 20" Bellagios wheels I picked up at the local hobby shop.

I just never got around to really starting it. Would it qualify?
