Cheap Cars
Contest Directions: After a year of slow car sales, American and international automakers are looking into cost-cutting technologies and materials to produce cheaper cars and increase the car sales in the difficult economic times.
Make cars out of any objects or materials (e.g. household items, vegetables, etc.). Partial or complete car remakes are both acceptable.
Many thanks to Nerb for the contest concept.

        • You might enjoy this short video clip. I saw them during a musical performance in France more than twenty years ago and the show was amazing. Along with the motorized crapper and bathtub with shower (that also works when the bathtub is moving!), you could see cavemen playing "drums" and percussion with sledgehammers on washing machines and porcelain dishes!

        • Excellent work. I think it would place high in any gadget contest (probably top 3)
  • Flying Alien Egg Saucers

    Flying Alien Egg Saucers
        • I knew that I would not perform very well in the scores with my second picture in this contest, but I hoped that you would appreciate its humor. It seems that I failed completely on this point too as I didn't get a single comment from other members...

          [Edited by User on 7/18/2009 10:27:33 PM]
        • that was nice work paulhisson don't give up , you still great chopping my friend
        • I liked the chop, but did not have time to comment yesterday.
          Overall it's a great satire, but I think it'd place higher in the alien contest. I especially liked how you combined eggs and the flying saucers. The whole egg idea behind it and your write up is clever.

          However, chops that combine cartoons and photos usually don't score high.
        • Thank you for your kind comments, guys! To be honest, I posted this work mostly for the fun of it. My second or third (such as the "heavy rider" picture in the "Biker" contest for instance) chop in a contest is usually more a joke than an attempt to reach one of the top four places. That's why I like to see how people react to these additional works and I was a little bit disappointed because of the lack of comments during the contest. But it does not matter much now and I agree with your remarks, NewsMaster...

This contest is fueled by the following news: Price, appearance and passenger compartment arrangement of hybrid cars: From the outside, the hybrid car does not differ from its "petrol" fellow cars. Various types are manufactured, starting from regular city cars and ending with off-road jeeps and sports models. And distinctive fittings only add special pride for the owner. In this case, the price remains practically same. Some owners have already christened the display with the term "tamagotchis for big boys", which indicates the working of the system and the direction of the energy flow. Nevertheless, manufacturers do not recommend the use of off-road jeeps in difficult geo-climatic conditions. Modern use: Toyota is leading in respect to the quantity of hybrids and have been actively releasing these cars since 1997 and in variants as regular cars of the series Prius, off-road jeeps of the series Lexus RX 400h, and also luxury class cars - Lexus LS 600h. According to the sales report of 2006, more than half a million cars of the model Prius were sold all over the world. The technology of the hybrid drive Toyota HSD was licensed by Ford (Escape Hybrid) and Nissan (Altima Hybrid). The mMass production of hybrid cars is delayed due to the deficit of nickel-metal-hydride storage batteries. In 2006, 90410 hybrid cars were sold in Japan, which is 47.6% more than the sales in 2005. In 2006, the sales of hybrid cars in the USA grew by 22% in comparison to 2005. In the USA, hybrid cars occupy 1.5% of the new light vehicle market. In the USA, the sales touched 251,000 hybrid cars in 2006 (without taking the sales of the Saturn VUE Green Line by GM into account). In 2007 the sales of hybrid cars in the USA has grown by 38% in comparison with the sales in 2006. In the USA hybrid cars occupy a 2.15 % share in the new light vehicle market. In total, approximately 350,000 hybrid cars (without taking the sales of GM Corporation into account) were sold for the year 2007. From 1999 till 2007, around 1 002 000 hybrid cars were sold in the USA.
