I voted for aerocivic. Several others were close, but it's inspired so many of us on many levels. Maximum impact, well beyond the vehicle itself.

The choice for me was definitely between the Aerocivic and MPGuino.

The Aerocivic is an icon of what is achievable with minimum resources and some elbow grease.
The MPGuino is a tool to better educate the user on how to drive efficiently.

I voted for better education.

I guess I should just chuck my front wheel skirt in the garbage. Sigh.

$@*$^ popularity contests!

Don't feel bad, it's not really a popularity contest....I didn't even vote for my own entry, lol.

Maybe we should have delved out the nominees over a couple of months. I have this feeling that we have played all of our best cards in one hand with them all being on the block for one month.

Perhaps we can regurgitate the non winners in next month's vote and so on and so forth until we can get some new blood in the competition. this will be very likely as spring/summer is fast approaching and more people up in the North here will be working on Projects and get some fresh things up for the chopping block.

Totally agree on this point.

Yep, I definitely agree with that approach too... maybe have one monthly "all-time" project vote (past winners aren't included), and one monthly "new last month" project vote... though that may be too much work to keep track of (have to do nominations for both, then voting for both, then keep track of who won in the past... )

Anyway, the list above had some many great projects, it's kinda unfair to not give them another chance...
