They're all 'obvious choice' cars, but the least obvious to model would be the eclipse I think, which decides my vote. I'd prefer to see something a bit more different though. I'd say an Integra Type R would be an example of 'little less obvious' while still maintaining your theme. Although above all of these I'd prefer to see like a rusty old VW Camper or a Pimped Hummer

these are my choices because
1. supra's my dream car
2. i own an eclipse so id model it to resemble how I'm hooking mines up
3. since i own dsms (3 eclipses)and im a fan of turbo, i was going to get a evo so that my daughter has more room. she hates my eclipse lol
4. my best friend owns a 350z and wants me to do his car lo

lol thats why these are my choices lol but normally id do like a clk or a Mercedes but i guess modeling cars you know helps put more details and keeps you inspired.

naw no turbo lol im such a fan of the 2g. Plus, i know this eclipse in and out, owned one since 99 lol so if i do actually do the eclipse, im going ot do the whole thing including the engine. Im also going to put the 90 eclipse motor in it since i did that motor swap on mines. i guess i like this car cause i know it so much and its easy for me to get ref since i can just do downstairs lol and the new eclipse are pretty ugly. it looks like mitsubishi was confused when trying to decide if they wanted a 350z or a audio tt lol but without the turbo.

Instead of a + value use a - value for the bump (or invert the colours of your bump map using photoshop)
