Oscar is up his old tricks - BAD OSCAR
Actually, this is a brilliant idea. I intend to win the clean boot award... 8)
Read on and see what Oscar is suggesting -

I've thought in the past how good it would be to have an online concours event with forum members voting for different categories.
Ideas? I say let's do it. The burning question; who will judge? Should we all vote? Another poll? ;D
Styria will HAVE to win the 3 pointed star contest with that bird of his.

to me, theres also something about those lovely merc 'metal' stickers like the boot ones and the fuel lid/tire pressure ones...

re lower pic, i keep the 116 clean...real clean!

Cool! when I'm bored I think I will paint my garage floor too.  But then i'll only be bored after I've rebuilt the front of the 107 and the engine of the 140.  Hmmm.  But the star on the floor is a nice touch.

It's a great idea if I do say so myself and I humbly accept members' nomination to be judge whereby the forum will sponsor me to travel the world to do the test driving and judging ;D ;D ;D

Nathan's just taken out the cleanest best designed garage floor  (applause)  He's given me ideas there

EDIT:  Greg wins the cleanset bundt award, I have a photo to prove it.  (applause)

Being biased and duly impressed with Koan's mp3 input for Becker radios, I nominate him for most original technical mod.

Bring it on peoples. What categories?
