    Clicking the number in front of the car will bring you to the original post in the entrance thread containing the car. I have emboldened those that I feel have been modified in such a way as to warrant a second look. (ie heavily modified)

    PM me your top 25 with the NUMBER of the car (according to my list here) in descending order from 1-25.

    Example:

    #1:32
    #2:12
    #3:17
    ...
    ...
    #24:18
    #25:1

    This will make it easiest to tally the scores.

      You can if you like, it won't skew results too badly the way I set it up.

        What if you can only come up with seven cars that you think are worth voting for? I could probably pad the list out to ten but... I'm sure as hell not coming up with 25. Who could be arsed sitting here trying decide which is better between a Honda Jazz and a Ford Falcon?

        In addition to that, I love to be harsh but MXM doesn't own a Lotus 7; He owns a pile of broken pieces of metal that happen to be painted the same shade of orange as the Lotus 7 he used to own. I can't help but feel that wrecked exotics should be disallowed in the interests of fairness towards those of us who have driven sensibly to avoid wrecking our exotics. Also, he'll get pity votes... and let's face it, he's obviously the only thing standing between some of us and the crown.

        Also, where is this crown we keep hearing about? I want to see it... I'm starting to think there isn't one.

          Well obviously you don't have to vote for MXM's car, but it is clearly stated in the list that its wrecked

          If you can't 'be arsed' as you say, to vote for more than 7, don't feel like you need to. It won't really matter in the end. Its just an addition of points...

          Also, what are you talking about with the crown?

            No one is forcing you to vote for 25 cars. You can vote for one car and it still works. That's just lazy though. As for determining which "lowly" car is better than another, you don't have to with starfox's scheme.

            With this method, voters will not be forced to individually rank their lower ranking selections but more or less group them into low or lower.
            And if you don't know that a Ford Falcon is better than a Honda Jazz, then you probably shouldn't be voting... (no offence Zesty!)

              Cool! I'll probably just vote for 10 or so.

              I knew the crown was lie!

              Also, disregard that bit about the crown because I was just joking around and poking fun at myself for my word usage.

                      EDIT: How long will voting be open? I'll be away tonight and most of tomorrow so I'd like to vote when I get back so that I can give it my full attention - I've just had my dinner and I'm about to jump in the shower. I'll be back, like, 24 hours from now at the most, probably.

                      Anyway; later, peeps.

                            All the hate I bet you were the one who negrepped me when I posted the picture of the accident too...

                            And there's a difference between crashed and wrecked, the 7 is repairable and will be repaired, eventually.

                            Ok, so you think I'm some kind of reckless idiot who doesn't respect the classics? Because sensible people never crash?

                            What can I say, the car was made to be driven, and after spending all my money on a perfect driver's car in my view, there was no bloody way it'd be cruised around in, like one would, say, in a classic Merc. A perfect day, a perfect road, no residential areas, zero traffic - yes, I was enjoying it as much as I could. I made a bad judgment, and believe me, I'm still paying through the nose for that mistake.

                            But that's all off topic, as far as competition is concerned, starfox07 can remove the car from the list or from final standings, I wouldn't mind. Obviously the car is off the road at the moment, and in larger scale of things, this contest (or someone's opinion about me) is quite far down in my priority list right now.

                                      You shouldn't shower right after eating, it'll give you indigestion.
