Flying cars, concept cars, custom cars, aero cars, streamliners, wings, show cars, fantasy, retro futurism, shiny steampunk, fins, bubble tops, bullets, anti-gravity, asymetric, avant garde. Can be real detroit concept cars or pure, fantastic fiction.

 

The science of it is not important. Like conceptual cars, the art of the idea is what counts. The spirit of the build is utopian. Battle machines and weaponry are out. Prefer no rust and gunk but if it contributes to the wonder of your machine it's allowed. Whether from the distant past looking to the near past, or today looking to the future. It doesn’t have to be our future, could be your grandfather’s vision, short term or long term. 

 

Runs 2013 through 2525 ("...if man is still alive.") Join anytime. 

As usual, must show starting point, partial builds accepted but prefer builds that are less than 50-percent complete. 

Can use anything; kits, glue bombs, blister packaging, toy parts, bottles, any material that supports a vision of future transportation from any era.

An excellent choice Jacen. I'd love to see several interpretations of this from others. All are welcome in Utopia.

Cool idea Luna!

I`m my current Utopia I would drive a 69 Boss 429 with a JohnKasse built all aluminum fuel injected 429 and 2013 Boss 302 handling department underneath....my Utopia is very loud and not very pc :D . But thats current....in the future I`d like something similar but with magnetic propulsion capabilities and warp drive.

I`m up to my elbows with 2 CBP`s and a few 1;1 jobs for the year allready, but if I have time I may try to turn Utopia upside down. Until then I really look forward to watching the peacefull mayhem.

Wow. This is a very cool idea. I may throw my hat in the ring sometime in the summer.

I just joined the nightmare kit CBP, but I guess I can handle two as I just started one of my bucket list models a few minutes ago, a Waldorf Nomad Corvette.

 

After all, I was building it anyways...........

 

Anyway, all I've done so far is cut up a 53 Corvette model and try to figure out what to do next.

Hmmmmm...I wonder what a utopian hat would look like? :D 

 

It would be a Chicago Cubs - World Series Champions ball cap.

Motorcycles welcome Austin.

 

The plan for my build is involved and I may not get to the masterpiece until a bit later. However I have a quickie to start off with and will show my starting point after the holidays settle.

 

I'm dying to see what kind of creativity show up here.

I absolutely love the premise of this build.  No zombies, no nuclear winter, no vulcan cannons*.  The kind of future a rational species should expect and demand.  I AM IN !!!

 

*No offense meant to the post apocalyptic crowd - I've mounted M-134's on a Mustang fastback myself,  but right now I crave a more optimistic vision.

 

P.S.: Nice graphics, Luna.  You certainly know your trade.

I look forward to whatever gem you bring forth Johann. I had a brainstorm during my delirious wake up today and I've got an awesome idea. More later.

 

Thanks too for the graphics kudos. I did them as two pages, but when I loaded them they were too tall for the maximum post height and they scaled way down so I had to cut each page in two, but not equally. That's why they became four unequally sized links. Rats. I'd like to correct them to flow better but I guess they'll do for now.

I came up with an idea far from what I'd planned at the start of this. I put on my Utopian ball cap and envisioned the Cherry Bomb with three rim rider wheels.

Sorry, I've got plans. I'm going to smash it to bits for spite.  Hmm, come to think of it I think spite's a capital offense in Utopia. Wait, that's Utah. Nope I'm smashing it to bits for spite.

When I first saw the title of the thread, I thought it was about some ultimate floor finish.  :rolleyes:

I think that's the same hair dryer Judy Jetson uses. :lol: 

 Aah, all nucular hair dryers and curling irons look pretty much the same if you ask me.
