Cleaning up is overrated.

I can't say what exactly but there seems something wrong with that Maybach, maybe the wheels are too big or not big enough, but it doesn't look quite squashed enough :p

Well... the wheels are a little bigger.

It is an incredibly long thing, you know... :p And yeah, it's not that funny looking. Maybe I should squash it more..

I had another go at the maybach squash. This time the bonnet and boot have the original dimensions.

My first try at a squashed car. Front wheelarch is wrong in terms of shape on the DBR9 but with it the correct way it didn't quite look as good.

I can't see any images in your post. Try www.armedcats.net to host them. Worth1000.com does not allow you to hotlink their images. And hotlinking is bad, period.

The Worth1000 contests weren't really "squash cars" but the idea was to make a caricature of the cars.
I did win once with my Veyron squash though.

They've done that contest 5 or 6 times, you all should check them out. Really awesome 'shops.
