    Right, but like I said, I think they confirmed the Roamer and H-Series remasters are coming very soon. I'm wondering what's going to come after.
    I agree the Pigeon needs an update, but the thing about it is that it seems less important than more "core" cars like the Grand Marshal, D-Series, and Covet. It's more of a novelty, and I for one rarely use it. I'm sure that just like everything, there's a group of people that worship the Pigeon, but I think it would make sense for a more important yet equally ignored car like the Covet or even the Burnside to get revamped first.

    The Bolide also got an extra racing skin (which I personally much prefer over the one used on the config), a police car, and unused rally suspension.

    All of that except for (as you mentioned) the reliant robin would fit well in the official game. The D-Series unibody-on-frame is the first passenger car body style with a different silhouette, so that is very promising for some more body styles of passenger cars (Bluebuck's body set has the same silhouette throughout, Autobello and '53 Burnside are just modifications to the main body, commercial vehicles don't count since they are just uplifts and extended versions).

    On the topic of D-Series revamp, I wonder if we will get a monster truck. We can get kinda I guess close with included parts already. Just close enough to tease that is...

    I very much doubt it. Monster trucks like the image you posted are purpose built, and use completely different frames, engines, running gear, etc. The only part currently on the D-Series a monster truck would use is the body. If a monster truck were added, it would be a completely new vehicle.

    Not the original ones like what I posted a pic of. The first Grave Digger was just a lifted '52 Ford with a chevy small block and tractor tires. Bob Chandler's original Bigfoot was a '74 F-250 with military truck axles, 48' tires, 4 wheel steer, and an upgraded 460ci. We can ditch the 4 wheel steer, which just leaves stuff that's easy to make. A 7.3L V8 is reasonable for the D-Series (Third and fourth gen C/K had a 7.4L). That just leaves the big tires and axles.

    My logic is that I can't think of any Japanese or Italian cars that can't be put under the aegis of the existing brands, or produced in another country. If I am mistaken, I apologize.

    Exactly, it's like trying to decipher a person's look based on an extremely zoomed in picture of their eyeball.

    A pickup with a bed cap is a lot different than an SUV.

    Also, why does everyone always refer to the Bronco/Blazer and not the Ramcharger?.. :(

    First of all, it's not from Mexico. Second, the Bronco and Blazer were much more popular than the Ramcharger, so of course more people remember them.

    Anyway, the D-Series resembles the late 80s-early 90s Ford and Chevy pickups more than than it does the Dodge ones.

    *cries in corner thinking how difficult it's actually proving to do new axles and steering for his mod*

    Not my fault modern specially built AWS tube frame trucks are complicated =P

    I can't imagine sticking another HD axle under the D-Series would be that much, it's already got a decent number of suspension types and something like the original big foot is just an old truck with the axle from a bigger old truck bolted under it.
