Modification of the Month contest is back! ... in the form of Mod of the Year 2010

Actually, we're going to kick things off with MOTY (modification of the year)! Nominate whose project from 2010 you think deserves recognition in the ecomodding community. The nominees will then have a poll made and people can vote on their favorite modification. The winner will get an EcoModder decal.

The rules are pretty simple:

1) The mod must be completed and actually have been used on the road. Fancy ideas or semi-done projects do not qualify.
2) The nominated project owner must be a member of EcoModder.

Thats it!

To get things rolling, I'd like to nominate Ben Nelson's hybrid conversion.

"MOTM" should be "MOTMWWROTADI".

(Mod of the month when we remember or think about doing it)

Off the top of my head...

I nominate:

Don't be shy about nominating your own projects, people. The more the merrier.

I was going to nominate my Firefly/Metro boat tail prototype, but that was late 2009, not 2010. My, how the time flies.

Monthly seems a little too often, but I like MOTY, and I suggest we try a MOTQ for 2012, taking nominations on April 2.
