Will there be a realism penalty for building a 4x4 crossover?
I mean, the AMC Eagle was after all available in 1982…
No, there were a good amount of 4x4 crossover types in the late 70s and early 80s from what I gather.
I updated the OP with a preliminary used car budget. I would like to hear everyone’s thoughts on it!
My main gripe with it is that there is no budget listed for a 1955-59 car.
I can’t believe that I missed that
The gap from 1982 to 1980 and to 1979 is super huge I don’t see a 1982 car being able to win with such a huge gap in price
Well, a car never loses so much value as it does the moment when you drive it out of the dealership, so I’d call it realistic…
Maybe new cars could have a reliability bonus, and older cars have more miles on them?
Out of curiosity is mpg going to be judged on at all?
For vehicles like sedan that have normally more than 2 seats should I send entry with only 2 entries simulating the other seats were taken out?
Fuel economy is marked as a 1 star priority. It’ll be judged, but it’s not super important.
Engineering wise, please send them with two seats. If you are making an interior, I don’t really care that much.
FS: 1978 IP Freeway Star 1500DX
Panel van, 67000 km, 1 owner, no rust, radio, roof rack, halogens, runs well. Price $5043.
well I found this… 1972 Tolban 2500 V6. the last owner was not very kind to it, but this car was good offroad with at least 100hp and less then 900 kg, was reliable but ran hot inside the cabin, something that this exemplar in particular dont suffer as much because of the Rusty holes it got from his drunk ex-owner… anyway the interior is not that bad and the engine is still strong. im sure some sucke… lad will buy it.
where I found it
and now in my garage
What is this?
The 300 is VAM’s entry-level rear-wheel-drive hatchback. This particular 300 is an ES: Economy Sporting. For the 300, sporting refers to rally driving, and the car comes equipped with sturdy steel rims, appropriately sized all-terrain tires, and a skidplate. An electronically controlled automatic transmission provides a balance of simplicity of operation and driving fun, though VAM only offered one with their 1.6 and 1.8 motors.
I ran out of time! Here’s my epic entry!
This brings to mind the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, itself also a RWD rally homologation special, but that one was a true hatchback, not a liftback.
