    Powertrain-wise, I can't remember anything extraordinary except the SOHC Gavrils, >1L Piccolina engines and a Megathrust for the Burnside. Not that much considering there's 26 ingame vehicles.

    The devs 'care about realism' in the sense that they want the physics to be correct. I don't think they lose sleep over the fact that an engine is 2cc too big for a car from a specific era compared to real life. In essence, their vehicle line up isn't realistic to begin with, because it features non-existing brands.

    As for the #teasertuesdays, my guess is that it was a temporary thing for the summer holiday

    You do realize the cars are fictional? Just because the roamer looks like a ford explorer it doesn't mean the turn lights have to be arranged in the same way. Please don't continue with this.

    Well a fictional vehicle can be realistic by following contemporary styling trends and rules/regulations, having correct equipment for the market segments, etc...

    Just look at the Bluebuck, it fits perfectly into the contemporary market segment while not being a copy of any of her IRL peers either. IMO that's how all Beam vehicles should be: a fictional vehicle that wouldn't be out of place if it was real.

    As for the ram bus, I don't see how that's not realistic. Obviously there aren't any JATO killdozer busses driving around town, but it's not like it's physically impossible to bolt some JATO's and a steel plow to something.

    Except for the taillights, there too small, take a look at the fullsize cars Detroit was pumping out at the time, do you see any lights that small ?

    the impala's are about that size, (though they are a fancier design)

    and thats another thing, there are none of those small little details that became the norm in the early '60s, those really enhanced the car and gave an upmarket feel even though it was probably a basic car (chevrolet) on the Bluebuck. Its honestly the most barren thing i've laid eyes. Of course that can be forgiven to due to the time and difficulty of doing all those little things like roof liner and chrome bits. But those puny little things, and i mean no offence to the person who did them, are pathetic. The more i look at them the more i see the wasted potential, whoever did them just took the short, lazy way out. While the rest of the car looks like its come out the sixties, that sad, miserable rear end isn't anything, theres no detail in it. you only need to see any of the '60-64 Fords to see what a let down they are. Its too late now for any any major body changes by the devs, but im sure someone who knows a thing or two about early 60s car will do a mod to rectify it... One day

    the bluebuck's front and rear fascias single-handedly give me an urge to start modding

    The front highly reminds me of the late '60s Rambler Rebels, its ok and will do but not really keeping in tune detail-fest early '60s american cars, the taillights look like there from a '60 Cadillac, but poorly executed

    I actually find it pretty cool that the devs dont stick too close to IRL designs, as the beamng universe seems to have a completely different history than our world, (with different racing drivers, brands, and presumably car designers), it wouldn't make sense to have such a subjective thing as design not change slightly. IMHO the devs manage to ride the thin line between copy and fiction pretty well
    Gta V for example just copies real cars with only slight changes and they look pretty bad, is that what you want?

    I suppose there is some kind of uncanny valley but with video game cars. You don't want it to look very much like a real car, only a car that fits in a certain time-frame as a real car.

    I rather care about the styling, personality and memorability a car has than throwing a fit about the car being slightly outside the realism department.

    I'm not so much bothered by some cars being off, but by why they are off - and how those why's are broken so badly on other cars.

    The '85 D-Series fascia, for instance, was made the way it was because apparently, having interchangable valances is more important than having an '80s truck that looks like an '80s truck. But on the Roamer facelift, you have to change everything - fenders, hood, radiator support - to get the new fascia to fit.

    The Piccolina was made faster for "gameplay reasons", while the stock Wentwards, the stock Pigeons, and the Covet Skidplate - which are all slower than my Autobelli 70 - are perfectly fine.

    The Piccolina can't get a smaller engine because BeamNG "isn't meant to be an automobile history simulator", so why were the tire names for the bias-plies and older radials changed to simulate that aspect of automotive history? Isn't that making it harder for people to understand how big the older tires are? Doesn't that affect gameplay?

    At least have some established rules for what is and isn't "correct". If I'm getting a better experience of what a slow car would be like from Midnight Racing: Tokyo - a ROBLOX simcade game - than BeamNG.drive...well, that's a bit odd, to say the least.
