    The Voyager maybe (and still, it saw its market share shrink massively during the years, at the advantage of european vans), the Neon and the Stratus can't even remotely be considered sales successes in Europe...

    Every time... we haven't just derailed. We've jumped off the tracks, onto a highway, we've taken an exit, gone into a neighborhood, and the Bluebuck train is now on a narrow dirt pathway in someone's backyard, still going at full speed.

    We can save it by talking about a Euro spec Bluebuck. And as I mentioned a couple of days ago, some export Impala's got the steering wheel on the wrong side. So, we simply stick the BuBu's steering wheel on the wrong side and plaster billboards of it's sales sucess all over the European maps. Then this could be considered on topic.

    An EU-spec Bluebuck is likely entirely out of the question. Most American fullsizes never really had a market outside of America due to just how large and inefficient that they were. Though some old American cars did end up across the pond, they had little to no changes to fit the new market, and as a result, very few ever sold.

    Honestly, I question some of the Bluebuck's styling, at least as seen in the early development renders on the first page of this thread. On the other hand, judging from the video where we caught a brief glimpse of the Bluebuck in game, I do believe they may have fixed it - the front looked more rectangular, more like a proper 60's sedan. In full-screen mode on a high resolution display, you can sort of make out the styling lines - gone are the weird, curvy fender flares, replaced by a much more conservative single line across the length of the car, as one might expect on a 60's Chevy. It has likely changed drastically from the initial renders, as has the Wendover, now a coupe.

    New Zealand and Australia did get American cars back in the day. Most of them were replaced with Holden Statesman and Ford LTD's by the 70s.

    Look here's a RHD 1965 Impala.

    The full picture looks suspiciously like a burnside, did we get trolled?

    Or is it now the successor to the Burnside with similar styling cues but updated for the 60’s/70’s

    Not necessarily. But shapes of the '50s/'60s wouldn't be compatible with pedestrian safety regulations.

    First example of a drastic changes only to meet new pedestrian safety regulations that comes to mind: Fiat Punto (188)

    Nose went from this (1999):



    To this (2003):



    It was a matter of a few centimeters, but completely altered its proportions. And we're talking about a car of the late '90s....

    It "dates to 1928" in the same way a 2020 Suburban dates to 1936, and it was not that rusty. Certainly below average.
