Yes, one of these again! :mrgreen: It has been a while since the last vote, and this time it's a new format.

Two rules:

1. Car was acquired by an FG member in 2017
- Changing owners within FG is allowed.
- Got the car in 2012, but it wasn't running until last year? Disqualified.
- Placed an order on a new car in 2017, but it's arriving in 2018? Get out.
- Already sold the car to a non-FGer? I'll allow it.
- For Galantti: for this purpose vans are considered cars​


2. There must be a PYC thread
- With pictures and a green checkmark.
- Thread doesn't need to be started in 2017, PO's old thread is fine.
- And you can still make one! I hope this will be a small motivation, I know there are nice cars out there still without a thread!​


Boats, bikes, segways and go-karts will go in their special, separate category.

Reply with your nominations here, include a link to the PYC thread. Anyone can nominate their own car, or someone else's car. Include a photo, if you can be bothered. And feel free to elaborate with your reason. I'd like to see cars judged based on the whole story, not just a model in isolation.

There's no denying the forum is going through a bit of a crisis right now, so let's see if this gets off the ground. Let's say, at least 5 nominations to proceed to voting.

EDIT: It's going be a preferential voting to get a nice spread, instead of 2-3 runaway winners.
EDIT: just testing if I can still edit

Deadline: February 3rd.

I nominate my latest ride, because it's pretty, it has quattro and I had wanted to own one for 10 years.

Damn, between IceBone 's Audi A5, TobiasG 's Alfa Romeo Giulia and MacGuffin 's Mustang, I'll have a hard time voting...

Only one of those is nominated, should be easy ;) And Tobias doesn't even have a Giulia as far as rules are concerned!

Well, I expect them to be nominated, and even if I decided to nominate the Giulia, he needs to do a PYC thread... :(

So, whatever, I nominate the Mustang.



I am an Euro snob, but I can't disagree with his reasoning for getting one (price, rareness in Europe, noise, we're not getting any younger, etc.) and it's interesting to see this in an European context.

<_<

Ok, fine. I'll included it in a special "not a car" category. Bundled with bikes, if there will be any.

I just noticed this thread :) Would have missed it if someone wouldn't have tagged me.

I would have nominated the Giulia, too, but DaBoom was faster.
