    Well...

    I did find this post where @gabester mentioned that he had "20 more car body shells to finish" when asked about the status of the '69 Moonhawk that also appeared on the concept list. Apparently the '69 Moonhawk was just a pencil sketch at the time of the question (and I firmly believed that it was permanently scrapped, given that the '73-'75 Moonhawk came along about a year later)

    Now, if we assume that all the cars not in-game as of 0.3.6.3 were originally modeled during that 20-car spree, that still leaves us with five vehicles that were modeled as body shells, but remain unrevealed.

    Then there's this bombshell.

    That list of sketches is not only the closest we've ever gotten to having a minivan confirmed to be in-development, but it also specifically mentions a large '70s personal luxury coupe ! And keep in mind that this was posted a good six or seven months before Gabester made mention that he had 20 body shells completed.

    That means there's a slight chance that the Albatross progressed beyond the sketch phase and currently exists as a hollow body shell waiting to be put in game, along with a large seventies police-type sedan, an early eighties station wagon, and an eighties minivan (the latter two most likely sharing a platform or at least components with the Legran).

    Of course, all of this confirms nothing other than the above five vehicles (including the Albatross and presumably cancelled '69 Moonhawk) were at least considered at one point. Until further notice, I'm going to treat them as being in the same kind of limbo as all the cars shown on the now infamous concept list - Proposed, but Never Promised.


    As for the Bacchus, I'm going to lay all my cards out on the table and reveal that I'm secretly hoping for two cars in that archetype - a seventies coupe with a continental trunk, and an early eighties sedan with a bustleback (and, if possible, a variable-displacement engine). One from a Bruckell subsidiary, and one from a Gavril subsidiary.




    The main reason I'm so eager to get two near-5000 pound machines into Beamng is the sheer spectacle of any demolition derby involving one. Since our official vehicle list is already kind of geared for demolition with what other players have dubbed the "sedanpocalypse", it might make a weird sort of sense to double down on the derby and use it as a sort of starting point for career mode - quick, easy-to-prepare-for motorsports that require minimal cash outlay. There would be no need for inexperienced players to be nervous about crashing as they're learning how the game handles - not when the object of the first events is to crash!

    Another muscle car??? BeamNG has already got one! And muscle cars in general are a bit undrivable. What about adding a Kei Car? Or even a MICROCAR??

    I have posted a Thread that suggests a MICROCAR!..

    When this was posted we only had the pre-facelift Moonhawk, which is more of a muscle boat. Even now I wouldn't say we have a large enough selection of muscle cars. Nothing mopar inspired and no Japanese muscle. Though I would love to see a kei van, I think what the car library needs now is some stuff that isn't from America/Japan/Germany.

    Yeah, I've really wanted to see a big, boaty amarican luxury gas guzzler in the game, but the closest thing we have is bruckell moonhawk. Bruckell makes luxury cars, so a land barge in game would be fitting, I'd also want something like under the Burnside subdiary, (like the bachhus), witch is sopposedly based on a lilcoln Continental mark IV, my dream car. unfortunately there isn't really a big car on the concept list by gabester , though I heard on the list, there are a few bruckells, witch could lead to something. I also heard about about a gavril rouquefort witch is sopposed to be a late 70 s crown Victoria , but like I said, Bruckell make luxury cars. I hoping for a massive tank like a caddy should be inplimented.

    DEAR GOD. What is so spectacular about muscle cars?? They. Are. Terrible! They don't even crash or look good! Even the Moonhawk isn't a good car!! Why not a modern or old passenger car, like a 1992, or 2015 Twingo, or a Trabant, or a SFM Smyk B30, or a 2005 Renault Scenic, or a Fiat coupe, or a BMW Isetta??



    Muscles are like supers in this game, they crash horrible

    Glad you asked!

    I've seen many many muscle car suggestions before and I always wondered, why do people love so much the muscles? Is it because they are (και καλά) sporty, or manly, or mean looking?

    In my opinion, muscle cars are awful in design, don't crash well in the game, they are boring, undrivable and are all the exact same thing!

    I'm not obliging people to like the same things that I like, but it just doesn't make sense to me how could any one like this type of cars..

    Furthermore, this game is in desperate need of one (if not all) of the cars that I mentioned earlier. Imagine the Trabant, or the Smyk, or the Twingo (and definitely the Isetta)!

    This game should start with one of each kind of car, and then move on to adding more of each category. Now, since it already has a van, a lory, a pick-up, a muscle, some city' s, a big rig, a three-wheeler, and a some sedans, I think that at least one more City car should/could be added in-game. We also haven't seen a Microcar yet! (that's the reason why I'm suggesting an Isetta or a Smyk!
    --- Post updated ---

    Ugly. UGLY??


    You're trying to tell me that the Twingo or the Coupe (one of the very few nice and trukty good Fiats) or one of the most classic cars, the Isetta, are ugly?



    Such a broad statement...

    Well those are mods. They will not necessarily crash as good as vanilla cars.

    Of course I'm calling that thing ugly!! It doesn't even have a facial expression, while the Twingo does!!?

    I've said it before this is each one's taste in cars, mine will bad to you, such as yours will seem bad to me, and the opposite!
