Background to the Round

So, it’s the 2000s and you have the craving to go on a holiday but you’re sad and you think buying a caravan is a good idea. ‘It’s like a house!’ you say, but we all know that is not true. ‘We’ll use it all the time’, as even deep down you know you’ll use it once and never touch it again. So, to pull your terrible horrorwagon forward, you need a car that can haul a pretty big load but still be okay to use for your family on a day to day basis. You’re thinking of a wagon, maybe even an SUV if you’re feeling funky. Maybe find a way to have a car that is as adventurous and outdoorsy as your new caravanning lifestyle *vomits*.

Whenever I request General, it always fails to send the message.

With the current round being set in Hetvesia, I reckon 95 RON premium unleaded should be mandatory.

We don’t tend to limit fuel for these challenges. We allow you to use whatever fuel you like, however, make sure that your fuel choice is available in the country! If it’s not 100% available, you’ll get a worse market score

I made car with my skilled engineering but I not good at very 2009 modern style. Any tip?

Man, just look at pictures of vehicles from that era and go from there :sunglasses:
