Guess who's a teenager now: Happy 13th birthday to EcoModder! (Win a ScanGauge!)

(Original photo: Royal Broil; candles: Bootique Illustration)

Can you believe EcoModder just turned THIRTEEN years old?

You know what that means: it's time to celebrate the start of the insufferable teen years by giving away The Customary Birthday Loot!

The contest runs from today through January 22nd, after which we'll draw the following prizes randomly from all forum posts made between now and then. (So the more you post, the better your odds. Not that our hard-core members need any motivation.)

The Loot:
  • ScanGauge II: (once again generously provided by Linear Logic) will be awarded at random to one member* who posts in any thread in the forum between 12:01 AM EST today (Dec. 23) and noon EST on Monday, Jan. 25th (deadline extended from Thurs. 21st).
  • EcoModder t-shirt: one additional randomly chosen member who posts in the forum in the same time period will receive an EcoModder t-shirt.
* ... only members who joined before today can win.

Your odds of scoring a prize have probably never been better

Good news/bad news: forum participation remains near all-time lows, so your odds of winning are near 13-year highs!

In all seriousness, thanks to all you hardcore members who have stuck around, even if none of you talk about ecomodding anymore.

Good luck to everyone, and happy sweet 13th to us!


Did you even do any ecomods to your vehicle(s) this year? Or were you preoccupied by other activities / situations? I'm guilty of the latter, especially this year. Judging by the number of active project threads, I'm not alone! So what the heck have you been up to?
