So is this strictly a Focus thing?



Or anything, done right?

So I have an idea for this thread. We should make some rules, something along the lines of this:

1. Car must NOT be yours. (Otherwise we'll just get a showoff thread of people posting their own car, who will naturally think they're are Not Doing It Wrong).

2. Car MUST be modified. (Otherwise it's the same as the Cool Car Report thread, I think we should save that thread for cars that are classics or stock.)

3. Car does not HAVE to be a Focus. Any car that we think deserves respect should qualify.

So, a car should be one found in public that we think is cool because it is tastefully modified. Could also be a car belonging to a friend or family member.
Basically, pictures of this...

I saw a beautiful Saturn Ion Red Line. I'm not a fan at all of any Saturn's but this one was red with black wheels and lowered just right. I wish I could have gotten a picture but I don't carry a camera with me.
...would fit my idea for this thread perfectly.

I'll start with a cool MS3 I saw while walking the dog:

Can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but if not, here's my reasoning:
It's gotta be specific if it wants to be a unique thread that can stand on its own.

We have these threads already:

1. Hate the car above you! is for people looking for critique on their own car.

2. Love the car above you is for people looking for other people to agree with how awesome their own car is.

3. Cool car report should be for classic, stock, or just clean cars, as mentioned in its first post.

4. You're doing it wrong! (Post autofails here!) used to be rice reports, but now it's just for general automotive failures

So we need a counterpart for autofails: autoWINs. Should be other peoples cars that are either tastefully or awesome-ly modded.

Can we stop all this useless bickering and get to what this thread is supposed to be about: autowins.

I agree with these guidelines below. If anyone is afraid of a simple set of rules, don't post in this thread and let everyone else enjoy it.

And to get this thread on topic. I didn't take this picture or see this car in person but hopefully it will get us on the right track again.

In any case, the purpose of any thread can be whatever we want to be, I just think it'd be cool and entertaining to have an autowin thread.
and yes i agree with some rules woud be good, not a lot of them though. like 1 or 2.

1 rule could be it can be your modded or not, or your car or not,

2: it cannot be an autofail it has to be an autowin, also their is a difference between a very unique car and normal dd thats been slightly moddified
