Judging was done by Dodge’s sponsoring PR agency and Allpar’s editor. We thank everyone who entered - some people clearly worked hard and had skill to spare. Modifications were judged by subjective attractiveness, buildability, and our judgment of the level of thought and effort that went into them.
First place was taken by this ute, which today would probably find quite a few buyers — and be Dodge's only small pickup in quite some time.
This Caliber took second place. We liked the unique side sheet metal, interior view, through the side exhaust (though this would probably bring dozens of burned-leg lawsuits if really implemented), and general look.)
This one was actually my personal second favorite after the Ute. Tannon Weber did a simply incredible job of converting the Caliber into a coupe with rear-opening doors, while keeping the design pretty original.
Also stunning in its realism was this coupe from S. Weigel; you may notice that on Stephen’s, there are Arrow-style louvers on the rear, and a more liveable front door size (though getting into the rear could be tough).
The blue Caliber was the Dodge rep’s favorite.
