    Are the mp3car.com folks going to pick the 15 "best" cars to represent the community for the show, or just the first 15 cars that register for the event?

    Greg you know your car is a shoe-in for that anyway haha.


    Personally I liked before, where there wasn't really a limit. Kinda feels like we're moving away from a mp3car meet, and more towards a display booth at betascape.

    Wow, AFKFest is pretty late this year. I see it's going to be in conjunction with Betafest, but where will it be held?

    Also, I agree with malcom2073 about liking MORE cars there. Last year was my first AFKFest and I really enjoyed seeing ALL the cars!
