VOTM is about the car, MOTM is about the person. There is a subforum devoted to these contests.
Check out the Vibe/Member of the Month

This site is a valuable resource for Vibe owners, but only because of the content posted by users.
- If you have a question, it's nice if you can search to see if someone has already answered it, but we don't jump on folks for asking a question that's been answered before.
- If you see technical info here that you feel is incorrect, misleading, or dangerous, we're counting on you to post up your concerns/corrections.
- It is better to ask a question by posting to a thread instead of sending an instant message to an individual user, because as a post, the question and answer will be there for the next person who has the same question.
If you have a thread that you think is extra useful, then reply here to get it on the recommended reading list, To keep this thread from getting too cluttered, if you have a specific question about anything other than this thread, please either post in an existing thread related to that topic, or create a new topic.
