Local Motors Announces Texas CompetitionSat, 30 Jan 2010
New American car company Local Motors has announced the Texas Motors competition, the 19th design contest initiated by the Boston based start-up company. The deadline for submissions is February 10, 2010.
The brief, which asks entrants to design a dynamic and capable hunting vehicle for the gamers of the largest US state, stipulates that the vehicle should be a ready-made solution for hunters of every variety, whether hunting stags or fowl. It should be a compartmentalized home base vehicle, as regular pickup trucks do not fulfill all the needs of an avid hunter.
All Local Motors community members ages 18 and older are invited to participate in this competition. The first place winner will receive $1,500 and the opportunity to see their design built. The second and third place winners will be awarded $300 and $200 respectively.
Designers are asked to join Local-Motors.com today to familiarize themselves with the open design process and collaborate with other designers, engineers and car enthusiasts from Texas. The community will then vote to choose the winner by Tuesday, 16 February.
