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.

Well, there is a certain orange one :think:

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.
