The January 2016 Fiat 500 USA Forum Ride of The Month contest is now open! This month's prize is a $50 gift card to the FIAT USA store courtesy of Fiat500USA.com (http://fiat500usa.com/)!

Below are the rules for your convenience (they are stickied at the top of the ROTM forum)

Here are the rules:
1.Every first 15 days of the month, look for a thread that says "ROTM [Month] 2015 Submissions" and there you can post 5 pictures of your car and list all your modifications. Up to ten cars will be in the running. It's first come first served and members have 15 days to make their post with pics and mod list. After 15 days I'll close the thread. Anyone who doesn't make the deadline, can enter the following month. There will be no discussions or comments in the thread.

2.Between 15th-20th day of the month we'll set up the poll, and starting on the 16th day, and running through the end of the month, the site votes and a winner will be chosen by most votes.

Rule Details
1. Five photos must be posted. NO collages. NO Photoshoping to alter the appearance of the car. White balance/color correction is OK. HDR and other such effects, presets or filters are OK, but frowned upon. It is the Ride of the Month - not Image of the Month.
2. Modifications list must be what you have on your car now. Not in the future. Mods that you are selling and are listed in the classifieds cannot be included.
3. You may link to build thread if you have one.
4. Anyone who is in the running this month and loses must skip a month before re-entering the contest again.
5. Winner has to wait 1 year before re-entering.
6. There is a two car minimum for the contest to run, ten car maximum. If there aren't two cars, the contest is suspended for that month.
7. NO soliciting to "vote for me" in the forum. NO getting your friends just to join so you can win. If that happens you will be removed from the competition.
8. This is a contest for members, so that means your personal car. No company cars or vendor's cars. Staff isn't eligible for the contest.
9. One car entry per person, per month. Meaning if you own two cars you cannot enter them both at the same time.
10. If you own two cars and you win one month, the winning car cannot be re-entered for 1 year. The other car may be entered after skipping a month.
11. Contest open to any year Fiat Group Car - Fiat, Abarth, Lancia, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, Ferrari, Autobianchi, Innocenti and Fiats built under license -Zastava, SEAT, etc., etc!


Remember - This thread is for submissions. THERE WILL BE NO DISCUSSIONS IN THIS THREAD.

Let's see what you got!

Haven't heard Dodge, Chrysler, and Jeep specifically mentioned. but. for the record, are they Eligible? Has to be some really nice Darts and Chrysler muscle cars out there. Could open up the ROTM playing field a bit.

I don't know Mr.Fiat for two reasons, the first is this is a Fiat forum and second I think it would be embarrassing for a Charger to lose to all these sweet cars.
