I got this idea brewing, I know I have not been here long but I got an idea and just wanted to pass it by everyone.

If there is enough interest we could start this one up soon.

Here is my idea......

A movie automobile community build/contest

The builds would have to be as close as possible to any vehicle that starred in a movie, It don't matter if its showroom excellent or a piece of junk, as long as it was in a movie. I am thinking to limit this one to either cars, vans, suvs, and pickups.
It would also be cool to add a screenshot of your build so everyone knows what you would be shooting for.

Now for the contest part, If this is ok with the admin and everyone else, At the end date of the build I would start another poll thread showing all the vehicles completed and all the people on here can vote for their favorite. For the winner I will buy a 1 year subscription to Model Cars Magazine( heck I dont even have one yet lol).

So if this is ok with everyone and there is enough intrest I will start this one soon.

Lets hear your thoughts!!

YES! First vote and first reply!

This does sound like a very good idea! I might even already have an idea and the screenshot, too. Now of course, this does lead me to one question, by movie, do you mean any movie or just a big screen theatrical type, because this was from a network tv movie called "Christmas Comes to Willow Creek".

Also, any idea of a basic time frame yet?


EDIT: Well, I would have had the first reply if I didn't send 5 minutes looking for that darn picture! :lol:

Ok a little more details to answer your questions,

Yes any movie or tv show, heck even cartoons. As long as could be watched on a tv.


As for a time frame, if there is enough interest I was thinking about starting it sometime in December and ending say on
May 31 2011.

IN case anybody missed it, Here is some inspiration for TV/Movie cars. This one is done already but I might jump in with another since my club has that for a theme early next year. I could kill 2 birds with one stone.

If we get this kicked off I think mine will be Christine ( maybe a burnt version too ) Also a Days of Thunder City Chevy car. I have it in Nascars but I have to re-paint the body. Thats all I've done is paint it and I have to redo that so it will be fresh.

this would be a cool build, there are soooooooooo many movies & tv shows to choose from. Might I suggest a website that has a listing of tons of cars that were featured in movies (incl background cars in addition to the "car stars"):

Internet Movie Car Database


also highway, it's neat that you brought that movie up, when I was younger I loved the Dukes of Hazzard and looked for other movies that John Schneider and/or Tom Wopat had been in. That was one of the first ones that they filmed (after the Dukes went off the air I think, might be wrong though lol). It's a heartwarming little movie, I still remember that the Semi was named "Yellow Bird" !

I think you're right Michelle, I think "Christmas Comes to Willow Creek" was not long after the Dukes went off the air, and the "Yellow Bird" was my most favorite part of the movie, even though Tom and John weren't bad either. :huh: Being a fan of the Dukes and having an older brother driving rigs, it was just one of those natural favorites for me. I still even remember how I spent my Friday nights back in those days, "Dukes of Hazzard" at 8 PM and "Knight Rider" at 9 PM! :P

Of course another trucking movie (and short lived TV series) that I loved growing up was "The Highwayman". The truck was just too cool! It even transformed into a helicopter!

And if no one figured it out, that is where I got my handle from! :D ;)
