Local Motors has started its 11th design competition, asking its community to design a car by taking inspiration and researching 6 key Carolinian inspirations, which are part of 3 key contrasts:

Smoky Mountains vs. ocean towns;
- Big Tobacco vs. City Banking;
- Bootleg racing vs. modern NASCAR.
The are no limitations in terms of vehicle type and segment.
"What inspires you? Nature and the elements? Designing for a specific demographic? How about Junior Johnson or Dale Earnhardt Jr., the epitomes of bootleg racing and modern NASCAR? Pick your inspiration, pick the vehicle class of your choice and design to win."
The first three prizes for the contest are respectively $1,500, $300 and $200.

Local Motors has invited member David Weiss of North Carolina to help create the competition description. To help Local Motors’ community of designers, Weiss has offered his personal Carolinian perspective: “I […] welcome your queries on the topic throughout the process, and any clarification you may desire to help inform the way you sculpt your designs for this competition.”
Competition entries can be submitted from March 25th. The deadline is Tuesday, March 31st.
