Here we are everyone, the third 2015 TCCA Car of the Quarter Submission thread! Anyone can submit as long as they fall in the rules for submission, you don't even have to have a super fancy decked out car though it will can help you have a leg up on the competition!



The rules are NOT the same as it was for the COTM! All submissions that do not meet the criteria WILL be removed, without notification, and your spot may be given to someone else, so make it complete the first time to guarantee your spot.

Only one post per entrant. You MUST post at the very least 5 GOOD quality pictures. At least one of those pictures must be of the interior. The car should be clean, unless dirty for the ambiance of the picture(winter months), and the photos should be of good quality. Old pictures are fine as long as they represent your car the way it currently sits. Please specify which photo you would like to be your voting photo. If not I will select which one I feel best suits your vehicle. I will not change photos once voting has begun!

Voting begins the 15th and ends at the end of the month! There are room for 5 entries only, first come first serve with a COMPLETE and acceptable submission! If all 5 are filled before the 15th, voting will start as soon as the slots are filled.

PLEASE, NO DISCUSSION HERE, ONLY SUBMISSIONS! Any other talk or banter will be deleted.

The winner will be promoted on the websites home page for a month!

The winner will also receive a 1 year FREE Premium Supporter subscription to the site! This means no advertisements, and a forum where only supporters may converse.

You will also be entered in the 2015 COTY contest. The winner of that will win a LIFETIME PLATINUM membership!

My 2013 Ford Taurus SEL. I bought it at the end of January 2015 with 71k miles, kind of a unicorn being such a new car with mileage like that. I got a great deal on it. It was a fleet car, driven from Eau Claire, WI to Chicago every day or two. 71k of highway miles, SCORE! When I bought the car it was bone stock. I have since installed a PI grille, Morimoto 5500K 55W HIDs, plastidipped the wheels and various chrome around the car anthracite grey, and a low budget SQ-oriented sub stage, including a Shok Triton 15" sub infinite baffle on roughly 300-400W.

Here's my '89 L.

I have had this car for longer than I care to remember, has been on countless trips and adventures, have done some serious offroading in this this car, have crosses rivers and gone places you should never take a car lol, and it has never let me down, not once!

We still use it as you would a new car and we don't baby it, it gets driven to San Francisco every xmas. We just keep up and the maintenance and drive the **** out of it! Not the prettiest thing ever but seriously the BEST car I have ever owned!!

1989 Taurus L with zero options!
3.0 vulcan
about 120k on it now
only modification is the police hubcaps and a 2 meter ham radio.
