Welcome to the second week of a new forum game called the Weekly Vehicle Showdown. In this game, vehicles face off against each other in a forum poll. At the end of the week, the winner is crowned. The reign is short lived however, the following week, a random vehicle will be selected
to face off against the current champion. We will keep going until we cover every vehicle in GTA V and GTA Online, and have one overall champion. In the thread feel free to
discuss the positives and negatives of each vehicle, your opinions, facts, videos, pictures, whatever you like to strengthen your argument for why the vehicle you are voting
for deserves to win, and the other does not.


Rules:

If you post mulitiple photos or videos of any vehicle, use spoiler tags.
Do not go off topic. Discuss only the vehicles being voted on.
Be respectful of other peoples opinions.
Do not cheat; creating multiple accounts to vote, etc.

Have fun!

The first week vehicles were chosen in a completely random process.

Dundreary Regina


D2ALYwZ.jpg?1

Taking a road trip? Prefer old unreliable instead of that new car smell? Then the Regina is for you. Making a bold

statement with it's roof mounted luggage and quad headlamps, the Regina is perfect for the

young hipster looking to be hip.

VS

Imponte Dukes

The Reigning Champion

GPJtskIV5Ey-HEUQz94LNg_0_0.jpg

The Dukes, an American classic. 750 horsepower of raw muscle. This long standing favorite
of the Los Santos population has made it's presence known from coast to coast
as the the muscle car to beat. Can it come out on top this time?

May the best vehicle win.

I never had the opportunity to vote for week 1, but I'm glad that this has become a thing! If I voted at the previous poll it would be tougher since I love both cars, but the Dukes was something very special for me. Ever since GTA IV, my favorite GTA, I have very fond memories of the Dukes, and also how can I not love a big, burly, powerful American classic? The Charger, in particular the 69 R/T is one of my favorite American cars of all time, despite me being mostly a GM guy. Now let's talk the poll. The Regina is a great car, it's one of those easily memorable cars in the game. I love Wagons/Estates myself, but the very homey, and simplistic feel that other cars in the game don't have. It's underrated, but the Dukes is a classic, always will be, and it takes my vote for this weeks showdown.

I can't help but feel this isn't fair to the Regina, lol

Unfortunate result of random picking. To be fair the Dukes is a well liked car so it will take quite the vehicle to knock it down.

 

Maybe something like the Buzzard, or Turismo Classic will be the one to kick its ass.

Obviously Regina...

 

I kinda feel like there should be change of rules.

IMO it should be based on tournament tree...

We are doing every vehicle in the game. I'm not making a tree for all the vehicles lol. It isn't really a competition to see who is last standing. More like who can hold on to the winner spot for the longest. It's just supposed to be a fun weekly thing to get people conversating and thinking.

 

Edit: I voted Regina just because.

The Regina is dope, I just wish it was a bit faster. More classic wagons would be nice to see in the game.

Something about the dimensions of the Dukes has always bothered me. Wheel wells are funky and out of proportion with the rest of the car. The whole thing looks like a tube of toothpaste squashed at the center with a hard top added to it.

 

That said I still like it. It's a big muscle car and its fun to drive. Engine sounds good. If you could take that performance and the fun to drive factor and award that to the Regina though, I'd easily take the big wagon over the muscle car. Ultimately, I value the performance and fun to drive factor over looks. So I'm voting Dukes...

 

I'm kinda bitter about it though.

Tough one for me. The dukes has great performance, but odd proportions and I never liked how the GTA5 version is low and almost scraps the ground unlike real '69 Charger and how the front is lowered weirdly and not even with the back.

 

The Regina is opposite with performance and also has weird dimensions with thin roof line and the GTA5 face-lifted version looks boring unlike TLaD version. But it is a good cruising car though.

 

I'd tempted to say Regina, but then again:

Voting for the Regina. I have never really been satisfied by how the Duke handles. Maybe it's just me as a driver but I wind up fishtailing all over the place whenever I take a corner at moderate speed. I'm also rooting for the Regina because it reminds me of the car out of National Lampoon's Vacation. In addition to that, there's no such paint job that exists to make me feel like I'm commandeering General Lee unfortunately. There's a flag and horn, yeah, but I'd only roll onto the roof and scuff it.

As expected, the Dukes has already gained a significant lead. The Regina does have a surprising amount of votes however.

Voted Regina. I respect the Dukes, but have never really liked the handling and heavy turning.

 

The Regina is underrated, it's slow, yes. But I appreciate it's honesty.

Regina for me too. Seemed like an unfair poll at first glance, but the Regina sure has it's place in this game.

I honestly have driven Regina more than the Dukes now that I think about it.

 

It's slow, it's a pain at times, but it has its charm. It also saved me many times in a number of situations.

 

My Vote Goes To Dear Reggie. :sigh:

For those planning a long, exhaustive trip to Wally World or traveling across the map of Los Santos, then by all means pile into your Regina and make way for ducklings.

However, for me, I play GTA to as escape-tainment from the real world of long, exhaustive trips to Wally World, so please, give me the Dukes and let my inner Thelma & Louise out into the wild.

I vote Dukes. :)

- okay, we all love a family vacation, but good lawd! even wifey and the kids prefer to squeeze their butts into the back of the '69, bags on their laps and all, skip the stupid singing and enjoy getting goose bumps listening the roaring of the 440 and the tires' squealing when the road bends just as sharp as that old car can take. no real competition here. dukes for week three! =)

This is a hard one believe it or not. While I might not be the biggest fan of the Regina's looks, I feel it is the car that has more soul and character of the two.

The two cars are like fire and water to me. The Dukes is this supposedly raging american beast, while the Regina seems to be a more relaxed and down to earth person.

 

So I'm going to vote for the Regina, because the feeling you get when driving one. You're not thinking about being the fastest, you just want to relax and go on a long cruise with a beautiful scenery as background.

Now that was fun going through more than a thousand of old GTA V Online screenshots!

 

I used to drive this quite a lot in Online, other players would always be annoyed because I'd arrive 5 minutes later in missions and heists because of this slow turd.

 

As with most GTA cars, I have probably had about 20 different looks on these over the years. And mostly all of them looked good!

 

You win, Regina (Dukes, love you too).
