    The Bluebuck is, short of Forza games with the Thunderbolt, the closest I can get to the '63 Fairlane we used to own.

    I just noticed some things in need of correction!
    1) Of all BeamNG cars having a footbrake for parking (Bluebuck, Grand Marshal, LeGran, Moonhawk, Wendover, D-Series, H-Series, Roamer), only the Bluebuck has the wrong sound for it. In the other cars, when depressing the (dis)engagement pedal, the footbrake has a squeaky sound to it while in the Bluebuck it sounds like it's clicking, as if it were a T-Handle parking brake (like the one featured in the Barstow, the Miramar and the Burnside Special).
    2) The Bluebuck Drag's interior, compared to those of the other BeamNG drag cars, is fully dressed up while it should be fully stripped of any unnecessary weight like passenger seats and door cards!

    Also, on a different note, I'd love the Shale Green colour to be included in the palette of the Bluebuck (and that of the Special). It's a deep green metallic colour available for the Barstow and the Moonhawk and it makes these cars look really good, so I think it would also be good for the Bluebuck, the Special and the more modern Gavrils as well!

    I used to drive a 1961 Buick with a step on parking brake. It very much had the same clicking/ratching sound as the T-handle brake.

    I agree on the color, though!

    Hmmm... Your personal experience is real after all (so there's no point in me trying to prove you wrong when you clearly know better :)) but, to my mind, it would seem as the logical thing for the Bluebuck to have the squeaky sound because, apart from all the other footbrake-equipped BeamNG cars having this sound, there's also the linkage of the footbrake itself making this sound. Dunno. :confused:

    Well to add to the table my '76 Holden has a foot operated parking brake and it is very much of the "click, click, click" type much akin to more modern hand operated parking brakes. It just depends on the car I suppose
