    I like that idea but I think it would be better for an official LeGran coupe variant - the LeGran is already a K-car with a Ciera interior.

    Anyway, I have plans for the Bluebuck. I am going to make several trim levels. I will need to learn some basic skin making techniques in order to change some of the trim. Here is my idea:
    • Gavril 1000: The entry-level model with body-colored window trim and no tachometer available. Only black steel wheels with hubcaps are available, and no bucket seats. On the other hand, it can be had with any engine you want, but the three-on-the-tree manual or 2-speed auto are the only transmissions available.
    • Gavril Bluebuck: Available bucket seats and body colored wheels with hubcaps. Chrome window trim. All engines are available, and big-block V8's come with up to a floor-shifted 4-speed manual and are bundled with a tachometer.
    • Roadsport: Adds Alder Magnum wheels, more aggressive Plus-Trak diff, bucket seats, floor-mounted shifter, tachometer, 4-bbl carburetor and police suspension to any Gavril fullsize.
    • "Grand Marshal": Introduced in late 1964. Corinthian leather seats, buckets up front, extra chrome on the sides, tachometer, vinyl roof or two-tone paint job, 353 or 423 with either a 3-speed auto or four-on-the-floor.
    • "Bandit Package": Hardtop coupe only. Bucket seats, Alder Magnum wheels, any V8 you like with a 4-bbl carb and four-on-the-floor shifter, aggressive Plus-Trak diff, tachometer, police suspension, body-colored window trim and no extra chrome. Spun off into its own model in 1965, later renamed "Barstow" when a Gavril Bandit was involved in a high-profile bank robbery.

    I just hope that destructible fence is actually part of the map.

    Probably not. You can add it by just spawning the fence in the gap. As for the gate itself I wish the chain and lock were actually 3d models and not just a flat image since it’s really obvious at most angles. It would also be cool if it got actual jbeamed chains since it wouldn’t be that hard to make but it’s not a big issue.

    The Grand Marshal and Bandit wouldn't be a good idea - in 1963, the Impala was the top of the Chevy range, with nothing above, and so was the Galaxie 500 at Ford.

    However, there needs to be more than one lower-end model. For example, Chevy had the Biscayne and Bel Air, and Ford had the 300 and Galaxie.

    Impala Caprice? I know that was only in 1966, but the Bluebuck is its own car. The Bandit would not be "above" the Bluebuck, it would fill a separate niche entirely.

    The LTD, VIP and DPL also weren't available in 1963.

    You got me there. 1966 Bluebuck when?

    But, the LTD was introduced in late 1964, probably during what would have been this generation Bluebuck's production. So maybe the Grand Marshal was first produced in '64 or '65? It would have been a rather short production span of that particular generation, making it somewhat rare and valuable today, but not completely unrealistic.

    Nope, probably after it left.

    The first LTD was a 1965 model.

    So... this body style... only lasted 2 years??

    The 1961-1964 Bel Air lasted for four model years. Considering that our Bluebuck was introduced in 1963, it could have easily lasted until 1967 with some facelifts. All it would need is a more angular roofline and less curvy sheet metal in 1966 or so.

    Keep in mind that NONE OF THESE CARS ARE REAL, they are meant to be period correct original designs, not imitations of any real vehicle. Gavril is not Chevy, nor do they have to compete with Chevy. Who knows how or when they would be marketed in the real world?

    On the other hand, the Bluebuck is supposed to have lots of factory variants. Whatever the dev team came up with is almost certainly better/more realistic than my proposal...

    It wasn't introduced in 1963, it was produced in 1963 (or late 1962).

    It is based on the 1961-64 Chevrolet and Ford fullsizes.

    Not necessarily.

    'Not ready' can mean anything from a couple hours work to a couple weeks work.

    There is honestly no way to tell, we are not developers and therefore have no idea what is going on behind the scenes.

    Probably today or tomorrow. The trailers are already out. If past events are anything to go by (specifically the trailers leading up to 0.15), it is coming very soon.

    Yep, I'm hoping for a release tonight, although if it's not tonight I'm expecting it sometime next week (likely Tuesday to Thursday) as I can't imagine them releasing the update on a Friday, especially an update as large as this.
