I am a gear head and a grease monkey and I get frustrated with a couple things I see happen on here. 

 

  1. The Vigero is a 1969 Chevy Camaro, not a 1969 Dodge Charger R/T. The Buccaneer would be a better option as the body lines are closer (~67 GTO) and they are both considered to be muscle cars while the Vigero/Camaro is considered a pony car.

  2. Now to the license plates. The game is based off of LA which is California. All the license plates in the came are California license plates. While there is some exceptions to the rule, this is a break down of the plates by years

    Black and yellow 1968 and older vehicles
    cal-rxw708.jpg
    Blue and yellow 1969-1981
    blue-and-yellow-plate-300x155.jpg
    White and Blue with yellow line 1982-1986 (the E on the plate is for Emergency vehicle)
    CHP85plate.jpg
    White and blue w/ print 1987-1993
    ca93.jpg
    White and Blue w/ cursive 1994-current
    3t-ca-6eve689.jpg
    White and Blue w/ "Exempt" Police, Emergency, and Government vehicles
    LP_USA_CalifExempt.jpg


    So please, no black and yellow plates on your POS adder.


     
  3. The Gauntlet is not a Camaro, it is a Dodge Challenger. While it does share some features of the new Camaro (tail lights, rear break vent peaked front), the fact that is own made by Bravado makes it a Dodge product and there for the Challenger.

If I find any other things that grind my gears (vehicle related) I'll post them here.

I appreciate the effort you put into this and I see how it could frustrate car enthusiasts, which you clearly are.

 

But this is a video game.  People are going to do and drive what they want.

Right. It reminds me more of an Lancer/Civic then it does a Impreza

I wasn't even aware of the license plate thing. Probably still not going to care though... maybe if it were a racing game where more people know about it then yeah, I might pay more attention.

Isnt the buccaneer then general lee? Thats what i used and it looks almost perfect exect graphics.

The vigero looks it would be a 69 camaro...

My garage consist of 9 movie cars and a modded lowrider bf dune buggy.
1. General lee
2. AE86 trueno-initial Ds car
3. The chevelle from faster
4. Christine
5. James bonds car
6. Eleanor (modern version)
7. Smokey and the bandit car
8. Nightrider
9 Charger from fast and the furious

If i could find a helmat to match i would make my character look like the Stig ;)

The Buccaneer is a mix up (like most of the cars) and looks to be a mix between a GTO and a Chevelle

 

And it is the Camaro, they just gave it dual rounds and fender mirrors to avoid copyright issues.

 

Out of curiosity, what are you using for Christine and for the Charger?

While the detail about plates is interesting, I think I'll keep using whatever I think suits my cars colour scheme best. Sorry about your gears getting ground. ;)

We don't care what people use, we just don't like misinformation being thrown around about vehicles.

That's just how us car guys feel.

Its just a pet peeve for a gearhead. One that gets me is when people put high end wheels on off road vehicles.

Added another example, the Bravado Gauntlet. This one actually disappointed me a bit when I seen the in-game commercial and it finally clicked what the car was.

It won't wind me up, I'll just laugh at you for 2 reasons, you were stupid enough to buy a Veyron and the plate thing.

Since it has the dual rounds, it would more closely resemble the 67 camaro, which had the dual rounds in the front (the ones on the inside being the marker lights)

I see now, thanks for the clarification and I will make changes to the original post.

I think the Voodoo is the closest thing, but that would be more of a 59-ish Impala

10/10 thread, CaliMeatWagon!  Well-thought-out, informative, pictures, and actually something NEW in the pile of "hackers gave me money and people crash into me in racing and I hate tanks!" this forum is lately.

Thanks especially for the bit on the plates--I didn't know that, or the years.  It explains why the Blue/yellow plate "feels right" on my Stinger GT and nothing else.   Granted, I'll still use it on other cars sometimes because at a glance it looks like the Michigan plates from 7 or 8 years ago.

Why thank you sir. I've also heard that the black and yellow plates also resemble New York plates. Haven't checked on that though.

Your right as to the Sabre as it is a mix of a Chevelle and a Skylark, but the Tornado is more a Belair then a Fury
