Hey! (I told them to shut off the lights, but nobody ever listens to me.)

Nice of you to pop in. Hope to see you around some.

Good Eye!

Ford Escort WAGON Concept/Project...
'Design My Spring Project Car' Competition Submission from a contest on 'another' forum/site. Someone submitted it.

Response to the contest has been 'slow' on the other site, even with $100 in free gas as an incentive.

What do you think about me running the Design Contest on this site? Would be ok or not welcomed? I could offer a similar incentive, maybe that would attract new members to this forum? Maybe I would get some fresh new ideas on my MPG Project. Let me know what you think.

The front bumper cover gave it away - it's very last gen. Mercury Cougar-ish.

I'm embarrassed to admit I didn't open that thread at GS, though I had seen it. Things have been a little hectic lately.

You're *perfectly* welcome to run a parallel competition, though there ain't nobody here but us chickens at the moment! If it happens to land a few more participants, that would be great, and it likely will. The fact that you've got a long timeline is a bonus.

Cool, I think I will run an EcoModder Design Competition also (may actually stretch it out two weeks beyond the GS one due to paycheck reasons ). I will post something up soon.
Thanks

Welcome to EM! The rear window of your Avatar reminds me of the 4th Gen Nissan 300ZX, my favorite Z design. There was also a Nissan that was the successor to the Pulsar that had a similar rear window, but I can't find a picture. It was nicknamed "the egg" by rice-rocketeers.
