Prelimenary voting has ended. Thank you for your votes.

You may now vote for yourself if you would like, since I cannot track what I expect to be 50+ votes in a few days.


I would like to note a mistake on the voting. In Car Company of the Year (Luxury), it states “Honghu Huangdou Automotive Co.” as a brand. This is incorrect, and should be Guangzhou Honghu Automotive Co. Please keep this in mind whilst voting. Thank you!


@titleguy1 There is a typo for Car of the Year (Luxury) where it says Tanaka Aventis. It’s supposed to say Aventus, which is a luxury car.

Fixed. You might want to consider renaming one of them because I was confused the entire time as to which one I was looking at :stuck_out_tongue:

Even though last year was a fairly prolific year, we’ve seen the community balloon like crazy in the past year. We hope that next year will be bigger and better. As always, happy holidays and have a happy new year!


Thank you all for such a wonderful year!

Congratulations to those in the EOTY awards, and Happy Holidays from Farox, Hokuto, and myself!


The Honghu Automotive Corporation and myself thank you all for the votes! The love is very much appreciated! <3

And of course, congratulations to everyone else. This has been a great year for Automation :slight_smile:


Thank you everyone for the votes! It makes me happy that I could contribute to this great community and its been fun to watch it grow this year. We’ve really pushed each other to make some beautiful cars this year and the winners’ recognition is well deserved. Also thanks to titleguy1 for your continued hard work running the auto shows, starting CSC and hosting EOTY this year!

Merry Christmas!


I’m real happy and all and I’mma let you finish…

…but I just wanted to say that Chip’s ARXL challenge was actually the best challenge* of all time. OF ALL TIME! How the fuck did people not remember or recognise this? It’s just as well the title still went to another of his events, and also just as well that for once CSR didn’t win it** because honestly there’s been great things that missed out in 2017 and 2018 too. Several members of the community have suggested perhaps only individual rounds of CSR should be eligible for nomination and I think this is an excellent idea.

*that didn’t have access to source code in order to create the BRC

**I’m allowed to say this, I don’t loathe myself enough to be able to offend myself lol

Okay that’s my 2 cents. Thanks for the votes and Merry Christmas!


Without sounding cheesy, I really do wanna thank everyone in this community for making this year so great. This was a year filled with amazing cars, new ways on how to experiment with fixtures and great community members. Truly a memorable year, here’s to 2020.

And congratulations to everyone in the Awards!

For all the nominees and winners, you made this year special. Happy (late) holidays from us.


Thank you to all of the community, for all the votes and nominations i appreciate it so much. I can’t believe I’ve been active here for less than a year and its been one enjoyable. All of the support, advice and friendships have helped make the game far more enjoyable.

With this i bid you a wonderful Christmas and i hope that now moving into the 20s Automation can continue to evolve and grow.

Thank youuu!


Hey, I never expected my Spander to finish here! I’m quite happy to see that.
But the car is called the “BA”, not “FA”.
I have no inspiration for any tear drawer discourse but thank to everyone anyway.


Congrats to everyone who won. I don’t expect any of my things to appear in this nominations, let alone winning. But SSC did appear in the nominations anyway despite never ended up winning. But anyway, I’m still pleased about it and it’s a fun time to be here.
SSC is not dead yet, just on hold, i’ll be back soon!


Thanks guys! Though I must say @adamd’s Blade Master is cool!


Thanks Yall!!! I know its a joke award, but it brightened my day up when i read that!!!
the rather blunt description gave me a right old laugh !!
