Yeah, that’s about it. I won’t bin anything for having slightly incorrect sizes, but round sealed beams are needed for the early-mid 70s look.

I’d say these should join the list of allowed headlights as part of the OP, as quick design guidelines for all participants. That way, current and future entries will not need to check Google Images for a mental image of what an American car should have, lights-wise…

As for this challenge… Fuel economy isn’t my game, nor is gambling my personal quality, but I still want to try. With what is the question; the Nash doesn’t exist until 1983, so that’s out of contention.

Then again, I don’t have to bring up the Nash namesake to use a wagon body… Hmm. :thinking:


#26

Wouldn’t necessarily advise going with a wagon style, my first attempt was with a wagon but it weighed too much to get the economy up beyond 20mpg US, and it also had a very high material cost and left no wiggle room when it came to the other requirements, your best bet is to go with a coupe or 3 door hatch.


#27

I can confirm. Big cars are a no-no. I managed to get my Foreia to like 21.5mpg and exactly 8000$ before giving up.

To be fair, I did manage 22mpg with a smaller wagon body. And it wasn’t too fancy materials-wise, either. For reference, the body in question is the one used by the Nash. I know for a fact anything larger will be a pain to use…

Of course, this doesn’t mean you are completely wrong; I made a quick switch to a 5-door hatchback body with small setup tweaks but still using the same engine. And that gained me one whole mpg.

So while I would love to field a wagon, my chances of moving past stage 1 seem better with a hatchback…


#30

If one were interested in entering, would there be a “sufficient” fuel economy target? I’m quite surprised with what I’ve just done to an old smoker I’ve got.


#31

When it comes to fuel economy, as its important yet no minimum is set, just assume that more = better

#33

Welp. Znopresk is here. time to pack it in. :stuck_out_tongue:


#34

That’s where you’re wrong buckko.

Did we all collectively forget that pop-up headlights are a thing?

#35

You’re right, Bogliq hasn’t even submitted a car yet. Then we can have our permission to die pack our stuff and go home… :stuck_out_tongue:

And yeah, I did forget about pop-ups. Then again, that tends to strike me more as a sports car choice than family man… Still, if the rules don’t say “no”, it opens a whole new set of choices!
