Yeah I know it can't look like a cop car but I can have it look like Ken blocks? Like I wouldn't have to worrie about any copyright laws?

oh i don't think you could put any copyrighted logos or names on it if thats what you mean. so you probably can't put the monster logo or anything like that, just the graphics.

No reason you can't put monster logos on. Vehicles aren't copyrighted but why not make it your own? It's kinda lame to copy others. Use their ideas, fine but add your own touches otherwise noone will be impressed. Plus do you really have the money to make yours like ken's?

brain storm ideas dude. Dont just copy someone cuz then u just be lazy. Having a custom whip is supposed to be all about u not anyone else.

Why would a company even think about complaining about free advertisement? Monster would probably love it if you advertised them for free. I agree with most of the other posts though, its great to take ques from someone else on your cars design. Just add your own spin and make it your own. That said it is your car and you are the one who has to look at it every day, aside from your neighbors of course, so really you should do it however makes you happy.

there wouldnt be any problems with copyrights and stuff when it comes to cars...the only thing is, its not gonna be worth it...copying someone else's car design means that you really dont want it to look way better and youre not using your imagination and come up with other designs..

you can clone your car to be anything you want. heres the following ive seen near me: a blues brothers crown vic, a dodge a-team van, a starki & huch 4 door cutlass, and maybe a few others i cant rremember off hand. police cars you can as long as it doesnt exactly like the real thing.
