More salt coming your way
The ones that got away
A few cars that at first glance might have been perfectly fine for the preliminaries, but they do break a rule or two. (basically I goofed and left them out from the binning)
Turia Bravo 370
The car has many performance parts and usually means high service costs, however, it’s rather low, but the real issue is the Over-Head-Cam engine, too advanced for a vehicle required for this era, atleast from the US. Even with this fancy-pants engine, it’s fuel economy isn’t anything to write home about (25.5L/100km). Also, it’s design leaves much to be desired, don’t get me wrong, it’s got all the right stuff on it, however, the frontend, rear end aren’t exactly fantastic to look at.
Wagonmaker 650 'Bat'
A great looking, one of the only proper 4 door muscle cars, a real treat to look at, however, it has a head scratching choice of an engine, a 6.5 Over-Head-Cam V12??? However, it’s service costs weren’t too bad at all (1128.8). While it has the best fuel consumption of these binees (19.5L/100km), maybe there’s something to this V12 muscle car thing? But it’s just wrong as a muscle car, another genuine shame to bin, but because of the engine, it’s almost not.
Marvin Charlotte 378 GT
Other than the 5-speed manual, this car doesn’t have anything going against it, other than the styling to some extent, some of it’s good, some, not so good.
Sad, really, it had the lowest service costs of any car entered (915.3). It tied with HybridTronny’s Denver Crusader GT with having the best reliability out of all the cars (60.4).
Fuel consumption was about average, if not above average (25.7L/100km).
Shame to bin a car for having one little issue, however the rules have been set and are meant to be followed (even if it wasn’t specifically said, but should be common sense if you know anything about early 70’s american cars, if not, google it, this isn’t being directed to GW1, but in general).
Dominion Alouette SP440
One that I wanted to add to the previous post, but somehow I forgot why I had added it to the bin list and then removed it from there.
This car must have seen a lot of action in it’s short life at the hands of another officer, it’s still even got it’s siren on top. Shame that this ‘72 model isn’t equipped with the proper engine, must have been blown during a chase and now it has an older ‘68 one put in, we don’t really want a clapped out car for work purposes. This engine also isn’t great on the economy front (25.7L/100km), why was this engine picked? And it’s a bit too loud as well (34.7), shame, a real beauty isn’t she?
She just looks perfect for the job.

At Jones garage
John is looking for other cars Jones has found.
John yells out Jones name while going through the garage.
John can’t find him, but he found the cars in the backlot.
He goes to check the cars out.
“Wow, how did he get 15 cars at this place, or at all?”
“Shit, he is good.”
What’s worse than being slow (8s 0-100)? It’s being slow and being unable to slow down (69.6). Doesn’t help that it’s missing the side reflectors/indicators. Why wasn’t this binned? It’s cheap, really cheap (16600), and it’s not too bad on driveability (33.7) and has decent service costs (1186).
Look at this big lump, doesn’t look too bad, quite a fly ride. Wonder what’s the out-put on this?
284 horsepower? Fuck me, only thing that’s going to move on it is it’s shadow and it’s not like it’s great on fuel either (24.9L/100km), also the brakes look weak. Nah, this won’t cut it.

Muscle cars are supposed to be powerful, quick, stylish and cheap. This is…. Some of that, it’s pretty powerful (314 hp), it’s pretty quick (6.8s to 100kph), it’s also very stylish, but it isn’t cheap to buy (24,000) or cheap to run (1739.5), what’s more it’s quite loud (34.7), so it would cause problems as an undercover car.
Would you look at this! This is a hot little car, well, maybe not so little, but damn does that yellow grab my attention! Looks like she’s pretty fast….. wait, how much for a service? Jesus and she’s a bit thirsty also (26.7l / 100km). Best not to get a money pit.

This cars’ missing some ‘key’ features :> And it’s too loud (34.9), not great for an undercover car. However it’s cheap (18300), it’s cheap to service (902.8) and looks pretty decent, however, it’s quite light, not terribly light, but heavier cars are preferred.
Is this car Kosher? Anyway, looks like someone filled in some of the keyholes on the car, wonder why’s that? Oh man, this ones loud, that 4 barrel dual carb motor sure sounds mean, like really mean, jeez I think my ears hurt. But man, the service costs are so low on these, but that’s probably due to the all round drum’s. Shoot, a bit of a drinker aren’t you (27.6l / 100km), yeah, not sure about this one.
FM Cuda 306
Loud (34) and slow (7.9), might not be as loud as the others, but it sure lacks the grunt to back up the noise it makes, I’m guessing the 305 horsepower it has isn’t enough to propel this 1.8 tonne coupe.
Well, this one’s something, quite wide, she must handle well, or either needs it to handle all that power she has. Oh, it’s not even fast, but it’s loud. Also sort of thirsty (31.1l / 100km). Eh, I don’t think Mark would give this car a spin even if it was the most beautiful car in the world, and it sure isn’t. It’s just a bit underwhelming.
Another loud car (34.5), however, it’s not all that slow. But it isn’t super fast either (7.1s 0-100). Also is missing some details such as keyholes and an extra antenna(s). Also styling in general is lacking, quite bland in general.
I guess that’s all from this sid……. Oh wait, didn’t notice this one. Not very eye catching, is it?
But, maybe that’s a good thing, for an undercover car, but you probably want it to be quiet then also, this sure isn’t. Jesus, she sure guzzles fuel (33.9l / 100km). Wait, where are the keyholes? What the hell Jones, where do you get these cars, the next ones hopefully are better.
