    After having created my 10th mod, the Burnside Spelugues, I decided to leave the next one in the forum users' hands.

    So post lore-friendly realistic car suggestions.
    Anything counts, from loose ideas to detailed descriptions.
    When time comes, I'll take one of your suggestions (either the most appealing, most liked or most average) and make it a mod.
    It may end up with some changes if I see a need for them.

    Just for the clarification, it does not need to be from an established Beamverse brand, it just needs to suit the game's lore (e.g. my brands of Bolger, Lyons or Voyage).

    Maybe a Atom Hatch?

    As in your Mini Cooper-based vehicle idea from vehicle suggestions.

    I was thinking of making one, but it seems my idea of a retro AB car is what I'm more keen on doing.

    But maybe someday.

    Maybe the Bolger Lake/B2 then?

    Maybe, if I should try luxury subcompacts. But I'm not even sure if that size fits an US luxury brand.

    Well, Lincoln was gonna do one, but it never really picked up after they did the C concept.

    If not the Lake, then maybe a 80s model of the Burnside V8 or a older ETK I-Series?

    In the 80s,V8s were on the way out, and Burnside would likely switch to V6s, as Oldsmobile and Buick did.

    An older I-Series... that could work.

    It could possibly be similar to the W123 or the E23.

    And for other ideas, there could be a Bruckell/Gavril/Soliad MPV from the 90s or 2000s.

    Every rumored car that never came to fruition (yet?). IE: Civetta Fulmine, Bruckell Beaufort, Bruckell Albatross, etc.

    Maybe a Gilbern-based vehicle? (Brand name I came up with is Kyffin)

    I did come up with one model (Williwaw).

    Was thinking about a handbuilt track special, but an US one.

    So, it would basically be like a Ford GT.

    Also, maybe a Charmand (examples: CH5, Collier, etc.)?

    Could work.
    Not necessarily that, more of a small manufacture's one.

    00s CH5 already in the early stage.

    Where I find Automation really excels is in building cars from the mid-70's to the early 90's. It's also good at platform sharing - often, I'll make a basic platform then badge-engineer it to hell, changing only body styles, cosmetics, engines and handling for each variant. Maybe do some kind of 1st-gen Mopar K-car thing?

    Similar to the LeGran, and to a lesser degree an 80s Seville/Continental-style car I'm planning.

    Maybe a AMC Ambassador-based vehicle?
