Oh, the Ghia! I had a friend who had one. It had no passenger side floor, but it was such fun.
I have an uncle who has an International Scout II. It’s older than I am but still runs well enough to be a snow plow. It is the Terminator of vehicles.
Someone should pick this beauty:
The Taylor Aerocar III:
Those four were all on my list. Very good choices, all of them. Also on my list:
1972 Chevy Nova SS
1969 Chevy C-10
And, just for kicks:
I know just the chap for the Aerocar:
How our friend the Major avoided driving up in the '57 Spohn, I’ll never know. Mustachioed and pompous, it’s precisely how I envision him.
International vehicles from that era will still be running when my great-grandchildren are on their deathbeds. I have some small-time farmers in my family, and they’re still running several International Harvester tractors from the 60s. Very dependable. For cars, the Scout is a winner, but I also like the Travelall:
jesus, any of the Icons make me drool
kinda cheating, though they do present a vision for how one might customize a vintage model.
I had the Africar on my list because of an article I’d read recently. Interesting idea…
Damn… I just found their price page. The FJ45 starts at a modest $105,000
You guys are making me want the world to end, just so I can drive one of these incredible cars (even if my arse is welded onto a Recaro racing-crapper for the rest of my short, grinning life to make it possible).
And here I’d thought the best research of today pointed to rides like this being the way to go after Gabriel’s horn blows and we’re all Left Behind to chew each other up and spit out the belt buckles:
Eh bloody thing’s got a hull like a paper napkin, goes like a drunk puppy with a zimzom stuck on its hindquarters!
Close on chose one of these:
1954 Ferrari 250 Europa Coupe, Body by Pinin Farina (that bit is rather important, y’know). Goes like a bloody rocket with a tornado up its rear!
Nigh on borrowed this from Asaf in Burbank:
But really, nothing could beat the old Pinkie!
Flies like a butterfly too!
Festooned with decorations just waiting for the party! Ha! Pack your spare pants!
Oh, so you were expecting this…?
All right, anyone posts another Antichrist picture again, I’m docking them five gallons of gas and whatever natural hair growth remains on their favorite head!
Is it just me, or does the player spreadsheet not list our cars?
True, it doesn’t, because I was trying to skim off as many columns as possible to ease the effort required to post screenshots on the BBS. I’ll see what I can come up with to get car choices view-able by you.
Not everybody that signed up took a mission option yet right?
I imagine you keep a list of who did? Could we (in later misions, for now it is probably too late) remind the forgetfull?
