CSR117: Rumble in the Bronx


#21

Btw I’ve been fielding a few questions about “I know this is not typical if the American 70s but it should be ok right?”

I’m not answering that question again. Read the damn brief.

If anyone directly asks me that or a variant of that again I’m pre-emptively evicting them from this round because I know they’ll not read and get salty when I don’t buy their product because my client simply prefers something else and we’ll end up with a CSR115 again. Which is fine if the mods are looking for an excuse to thin our numbers.

i was going to ask id hydropneumatic suspension was allowed because some high end luxo land yauchts (btw a guy over here has a 67 pontiac bonneville 4 door its amazing) had air suspension and hydropneumatic is the closest substitute until air is unlocked but oh well. btw i specify ALLOWED because some people who host these things like to ban stuff like that


#23

The only question I have, and this is an original one is, would you accept an ad for a used car in like a newspaper format, given the trim year range? Although I understand if not due to the logistics of trying to be realistic with pricing.


#24

Not mentioned, will accept, but this is why there is a reliability requirement.

I guess it’s not strongly inferred enough that Papa Fuerte would be buying this vehicle new and not used. What kind of kingpin do you think he is???


#25

Ill be trying my hand at this one, although I definitely can’t say that USDM cars are my strong suit…

Im already struggling to meet some of the criteria :stuck_out_tongue:


#26

You don’t get rich by spending money where it can be saved while still looking loaded :wink:


#27

This may be true, but what’s even truer is that in the actual series the other car that features was tied to some wet work and carried a dead body in the trunk, so Papa Fuerte doesn’t want to have any of that shit planted on him!

New dealership cars only plz.

So, if you have acceptable low speed consumption, but nightmarish at high speed…


#32

A good point, if the figure is horrendous then I will check the high speed vs low speed consumption.


#33

What could be considered as an horendus fuel consumption, actually? Like do we have some kind of grade based on the power, the weight and the consumption?


#34

Well…

1978 Franklin Marshall InterState


#36

Is service cost factored into the equation at all? I’m finding a decent interior is making the cost outrageously high


#37

Yeah I didn’t mention it so it’s not really. Trim reliability is more important.


#38

A fun thing to consider as well as the more luxurious options reduce reliability.

In case anyone was wondering what a petoskey stone looked like.

I always thought that would make an interesting interior pattern inside a car. (Likely fake material but would still look neat)
