March 25, 2008

On Tuesday, Local Motors' on-line design and enthusiast community goes live at!

The community begins with a heavy emphasis on design as it promises to be a nexus for critique, celebration, and collaboration on automotive body design. This upcoming week is a time for our users to get familiar, to create a profile, and to prepare for the upcoming competition.

Beginning April 1, designers will compete in regular competitions for a chance to see their design on the road. This is no Fool’s Day joke! Car lovers and enthusiasts will vote and comment in support of their favorite designs, because they want the opportunity to drive the design they desire most. Competitions will be based on designing cars for specified cities within the United States, and the cars will be built near the cities for which they were designed.

Come check out the site and Go Local in 2008!
