I just received this comunication from our friends of Local-Motors.com and I am sure it might be of your interest to know and even participate.
Texas Motors has launched!
Regular pickup trucks do not fulfill all the needs of an avid hunter. The Local Motors community aims to remedy this fact by designing a hunting vehicle for the gamers of Texas.
The Challenge: Design a dynamic hunting vehicle for the great state of Texas. This vehicle should be a ready-made solution for hunters of every variety; whether hunting stags or fowl, this compartmentalized home base vehicle can do the job.
The Community: All Local Motors Community Members ages 18 and older are invited to participate in this competition. Join Local-Motors.com today to familiarize yourself with the open design process, and collaborate with other designers, engineers and car enthusiasts from Texas. The community votes to choose the winner.
The Prize: All designs in the Local Motors community have a shot at the biggest prize: an opportunity to see your design built, and on the road.
1st Place $1,500; 2nd Place $300; 3rd Place $200
Top 3 designers earn Winner Status within the Local Motors community, as well as exclusive LM winner’s T-Shirts.
