Anyone interested in doing a review of their car with an ecomodding twist to it?

The guys over at http://www.beaterreview.com/ are looking for some people to do vehicle reviews from an ecomodder point of view, I think this would be a neat way to out our unique spin on the thought of buying a used car. Anyone up for it? Go check out the reviews and let me know if you're interested.

I plan on doing one for the CRX, but I'd like to get a few of you involved too,

Thanks.

Are they looking for specific economy cars, or just anything?

Anything, as long as it would qualify as it's not some fancy schmancy thing.

I'll tell you what: If you've got a good writer in mind who can follow the parameters of the site (5 sections, 3 paragraphs for each except for the price one) and do a good "green beater" review, that'd be great. Alternatively, I'm always looking for Beater Blog entries, and that might be a good place to put an "ecomodding your beater" type article. There aren't any real parameters for that section--just decent writing. I'll be happy to edit anything that comes through, so send me whatever you've got and we'll go from there.

Thanks,
Andy
This is a snippet from andy at BR, so everyone who's interested send me a pm to chat or just do it and I'll pass it on,
