V8less will be setting up a 5 car display at Powerama. We will need 5 cars (non-sponsored) to represent V8less in the show.

The will be a official posting with more info posted in the next few days.

How about everyone posts their cars on here and members vote on what they would like to see in the show? Just a thought

But it is a good idea, ppl that want to have their cars in the show post your rides so we can vote on them!

:bigthumbup: That would be great. I would like to have some pictures of my car to show people but i dont really have access to a digital camera or a scanner - both of which i think you need. (?) Can you use a regular camera (ie one that uses film) and post them online using a scanner? Thanks :D

You can scan prints and post them up.... or you can just snap some w/ a digicam and post em. If you're in Edmonton/St Albert area, I'll take some photos... I have digicam.

I have already sent my registration form to Liz, but I'd rather be in the v8less section than by myself. unless I can be by myself besides the v8less booth, which would effectively let us put 1 more car in the show. :)

Heheh, do it Eric!!

Why will they only let 5 cars in though? That's bs.

Don't the old musclecar punks realize that this is where tuning is going now, these are the musclecars of now. I think that they're just embarrased that there are imports out there that can destroy their cars straight line, and when it comes to corners fuhgetaboudit!

Hey everybody... we need to clarify something about Powerama. We want LOTS of sport compact cars! Mark suggested that 5 of the top cars could go into the V8less display itself, but we talked about filling 30,000 square feet of space with sport compact entries!! For the past 3 or 4 years I've been trying to get the message out (obviously not well enough) that we recognize the trends, and support the growing interest in this type of custom vehicle. Of course we want to see show quality vehicles, but if there's 20, 30, or 40 of you that want to register, we welcome you! In fact, this year we've added a top prize for "Best Sport Compact" of $1,000.00, just to show how eager we are to have you in the show. Sure, there's still going to be all the other types of entries, and maybe some of the older die-hard muscle car guys don't seem to appreciate the younger crowd, but that's been the case since time began. I mean, think about it - do your parents like your music? Probably not, but you likely don't care for theirs either. The fact is, however, a true car enthusiast will appreciate another persons efforts, even if their taste differs.
It's so easy for the wrong information to spread because someone misunderstands. So let's set the record straight... the welcome mat is out! The only way we can create a really impressive import section at Powerama, is if all the people get on board and enter their cars. Liz Oglu - Powerama

We have a hard copy, there are over 30 catagories in 1st, 2nd and 3rd that Sport Compacts are capable of winning.

Very generous in prizing.

We will scan and post.

Thanks to those who were interested in being part of the V8less display.

In the interest of supporting Powerama, there is too much confusion on the V8less Display. Therefore we are closing the request for non-competition V8less display cars.

If you wish to part of this great event, please register and support Powerama. You will still be part of the V8less display, but you will need to register through www.powerama.ca. Registration fees will apply.

We really wanted to do the voting system, but it would delay people from entering through the correct channels thus jeopardizing any participation.
