People have been smoking a lot of crack lately.

Perhaps a more useful contest could enforce the participants to be sober while creating their designs or ban designs that require alien technology.

Gotta love this trendy trend.

Have you seen some of the crazy car concept designs that people draw up, model or build outright in the case of the bigger car companies? I would have been disapointed if this contest didn't produce completely foreign looking chassis designs.
