I think the Electro-Metro deserves some love too There's gonna be even more hardcore conversions coming I'm sure projects like Bens fleet help lead the way (And of course the forkenswift).

Also A big fan of the aerocivic and all the aeronauts.

Even though the voting is over, I vote for Paul & Sabrina's controlling mother-in-law, I mean motor. haha! Just kidding. Darin, please don't chuck your skirt in the garbage. Ben, you should win in the category of doing the most stuff in the shortest amount of time. I need to see the rest of Ecomodder. I have no idea what the heck a mpguino is. I'm guessing it has something to do with my uncle guido, and his mofia friends, but I can't be sure about that.

Really, I was just kidding about chucking the skirt. (OK, "having a tantrum" may be more accurate.)

As for worthy projects getting a second swing at the ball, one "loophole" is that as long as the project was active in some way in the last month, it still qualifies, even if (like Electro Metro) it started a long time ago.

Think it's time to declare voting closed (whoops - Daox beat me to it) and MPGuino the winner. Originally we had talked about giving an MPGuino to the winning entry, but that seems kind of redundant, eh?

Give the winner what the second place build : the aerocivic. I'm sure Basjoos will be OK
