1975 - Still Sdyney - Deer And Hunt Australian division HQ
2 pm - Warehouse
The whole department is standing in the warehouse next to the main building. Normally its home of showcars, spare parts and the christmas party. But today it houses 6 cloth-covered vehicles.
Thompson take the word: “Thank you all that you could make it. Today we all will decide the future of Deer And Hunt in our great homeland. So please take a clipboard and vote for your favorite”
@kobacrashi “Reduit GSR21”
The cover gets dragged of the car and everybody eagerly awaits the car underneath.
“First we have a car from Reduit.”, Thompsons starts, “I guess they have seen this as a proposal for a collaboration between Deer And Hunt and Reduit. I think that would need to go to the US guys first, but we are only here to judge design today.” The group of people walk around the car, scribbling and writing to their clipboards.
A lot of people like the design. Its a nice compact look and the two tone does tribute the US Supercoupe.
A good benchmark to test the other cars against
The crowd moves to the next car and the next cover falls.
@MasterDoggo “Deer And Hunt Burner”
“Next we have an entry from a personal designer. Codename ‘Burner’. Please come closer and take in this”
Again everybody scribbles, erases and pretend to be art critics by scratching their chins and going “HHHHMMMMMM”
The people cant really decide if they like this or the GSR more.
Some think it looks a bit cheap, because of the lack of chrome trim on the side, others like that.
A worthy enemy against the GSR
Again the flock of people move to slighty larger tarped car.
@GetWrekt01 “Vector Contra Super LT8”
“Next we got another proposal from Vector. Quite diffrent but i would say thats a positve thing. Ladies and Gentlemen ready your pens”
Especially popular with the men of the group.
Many also like the detailing like the popups and asymmetrical logos
Some people do have concerns though if this would fit the lineup and if it isnt to close to the First SuperCoupe
“Okay everybody. We are halfway through these. I would suggest a quick coffee break to get some new power and clear your minds”
After an hour or so the big group meets up again in the warehouse, Eagerly awaiting the next reveal.
@mart1n2005 “Valiant Boxer 304”
“Coming from Valiant Boxer. I guess we already know one thing the US-branch will change”
People are not really convinced.
A lot of people criticize the glued on rivets on the rear quarterpanels. They also dont understand why they are only on the rear.
Many are also concerned that it would be hard to rebadge the car with the grill design and big decals on the side.
Some also think that the bumper design might not be legal and need a redesign
With people arguing the group slowly moves to the next car.
@machalel “AAAA - Knightsgrove 660S”
“And now for something completly diffrent from AAAA…A? Only 4 A’s sorry.”
Called ‘The Cheesewedge’, many people seem to like this.
They like the distinct form of the car itself and the front. And it is still able to show its US roots.
But many also dont really fancy the rear too much. They think its too small in the proportions
With great excitment the group moves to the last lot.
@BF94387 “Deer And Hunt Dingo”
“And now our last contender. Again from a private designer. Please give this one as much time as the others. When you are done please leave your clipboard at the door. We should have the results shortly after.”
Definitively a favorite of people
They like the two tone and the slotted headlights
Many also wrote that this is almost like the Boxer 304 but better.
After all the documents were collected and the winner is clear. The Dingo won the Australian hearths and will be send away as a proposal to the US-HQ. Well done @BF94387
Thanks everybody again for taking part.
