The first Car Item Contest was announced on January 23 2008, and Gaians had five weeks to come up with a design for a new car item for use in Gaia Rally and submit it. There would be three winners, and each would receive 200,000 Gold.
Winners were announced on March 7 2008. The contest differed from previous item design contests, as Gaians could not decide from a group which ones would win; instead Gaia staff chose the three winners:
- Cardboard Full Decal: Reiji Maeda submitted this item in the Scion Item Contest. Nice work! Designed by Reiji Maeda.
- Hot Rod Exhaust: Corrupted Hunter created this winning entry for the Scion Item Contest. Designed by Corrupted Hunter.
- Heart Antenna Ball: Based on sazupupu's winning entry to the Scion Item Contest. Designed by sazupupu.
- Hearts Full Decal: A full heart decal, inspired by sazupupu's entry in the Scion Item Contest.
