    The whole Imperial system is backwards and stupid but I do understand that it'd be quite costly for a whole country such as America to just instantly change to metric.

    lol what?

    The metric system makes so much more sense, everything is divisible by 10, water freezes at 0, boils at 100 etc.

    I wouldn't call it 'easier'.

    Likely in your case it's just easier to use because you have grown up with it.

    Anyway I'm getting off topic.

    OT: What on Earth happened to the small Island revamp which was teased like over a year ago

    12 inches to a foot, 3 feet to a yard, 2 yards to a fathom, 5.5 yards to a rod, 40 rods to a furlong, 8 furlongs to a mile, 3 miles to a league. What's so confusing about that you simpleton?

    My freshmen CS professor use to say that if Aliens landed in America and saw the imperial system they would look on another planet for intellegent life.

    OT:
    Concerning significant modifications, now that the ceiling for official content seems to have been raised in 0.18...
    The Miramar and GM could really use a stretch limo. Imagine the carnage a couple of those on the Hirochi figure 8 could cause.

    Maybe-
    Nah you still sound dumb. Metric makes infinitely more sense (And that's coming from a US resident) than our ludicrous Imperial system. Even the name of the damn thing sounds old c'mon.

    From now on I'm only measuring things in fathoms and furlongs.

    The imperial system sounds more gibberish imo. Yeah, I would like to see the wagon variant for the GM too.

    >5.5 yards to a rod
    Even the base measurements are garbage.

    Interesting note on Imperial units: the only country I know of that still uses Imperial units is the UK, and even there most things are measured in metric anyway. The USA uses US Customary Units, which have the same names for measurements but are slightly different in size. Either way, unit conversions make metric superior to Imperial/US Customary for measuring everything (except temperature, for people who have never touched a science textbook)

    Why the Miramar, may I ask? I am not familiar with the history of limousines.

    The Miramar could see a config inspired by the Nissan Prince Royal limo. Just stretch it, give it a big engine, and give it an interior worthy of an Emperor. Presidential limos are perfect for demo derbies ;)

    Yes, you recycled a comment even though I already explained why it's small... Here is the first time I posted that if you must see it. It doesn't add anything to the conversation though.

    The difficulty with switching from horsepower to KW is that KW is a significantly lower number. People like to talk about how their car has 130 HP instead of 95 KW. Bonus points for only being 2 digit instead of 3 in this case. This is one of the reasons why KW just struggles to be used even if it has been the official unit for a while now.

    Next one being simple that people historically understand HP values which makes comparsion between lets say 130 KW and 150 KW less enticing than 177 HP to 204 PS. And again...the human factor.... TWO HUNDRED and 4 HORSEPOWER sounds so much more powerful than ONE HUNDRED 77 HP.

    Man, that limo looks cool =D

    OT: I think a Miramar limo would look really weird. The Miramar is a very small car. I feel like a Bluebuck or a Burnside limo would make more sense for the game, but that's just my opinion though.

    The Miramar is noticably smaller than the normal contemporary Nissan Gloria's and Toyota Crown's (1050kg to 1300kg; not sure about the footprint), so it certainly isn't a perfect match for a luxury stretch limo, but I think it could pull it off.

    As for the Bluebuck limo; as far as I can tell it's in a similar situation as the Miramar. All the limo's I know of from the era were Lincoln's and Cadilacs, with a couple of Imperial's, all of which were larger than the Bluebuck.

    There is a notable exception though. I've seen maybe two '65 Ford Galaxie limo's floating around the web, which is very similar to the Bluebuck compared to the aforementioned luxury cars. So although atypical, it appears it wouldn't be completely unprecedented.

    As for a '53 Special limo, as far as I can tell this is a typical limo for the time.

    So, not out of the question either.
