I would like to submit a few ideas for cars I would like to see added to this awesome game. First off, I would LOVE to see more traditional classic American Demo Derby cars. Especially more Mopars and FoMoCo. (Please note that none of the pix are mine, just hijacked from the Net.)

1. '64 - '66 "Box Car" Imperial. 1568349297060.png

2. '64 - '66 Ford Thunderbird. 1568349352355.png

3. '61 - '68 "Suicide Door" Continental. 1568349457755.png

4. '63 - '64 Mercury "Breezeway". 1568349521447.png

5. '61 - '64 Ford Country Squire Wagon. 1568349613987.png

6. '65 - '68 Chrysler Newport / New Yorker. 1568349830223.png

7. '71 - '76 Chevrolet Kingswood Estate. 1568349946828.png

8. '75 - '76 Chevrolet Impala / Caprice Coupe. 1568350015367.png

9. Any '69 - '73 "Fuselage" Body Mopar. 1568350219459.png

10. Any '74 - '78 "Shock Bumper" Mopar. 1568350411029.png

Next, I LOVE the '59 Cadillac and would love to see a '57 Ford and '57 Plymouth added along with the ability to limit races to '50's era cars so you could recreate '70's era Jalopy - Figure 8 races OR '50's era NASCAR style events.

I was going to add pix of a '57 Ford and '57 Plymouth but it looks like I am only allowed to post 10 pix per post so since it is getting late I will make a couple of additional posts with a few more ideas I had in the morning.

The Country Squire would be a nice addition, but most of those look a bit similar to cars that are already in the game. I'd rather have more diversity, and I think the devs agree.
Anyway, here are other cars:

Toyota Celica:


Remember the Slider from the first FlatOut? Japanese cars of the 70s look like miniature versions of muscle cars from the same era, but with a distinct look. The first generation Celica coupé would fit perfectly in Wreckfest, as there's only 4 Japanese cars and none that looks like it.

Plymouth Barracuda:


The first generation Barracuda is technically the first pony car, being released two weeks before the Mustang made its debut. While it was based on the Plymouth Valiant, the massive rear window was exclusive to the Barracuda. Its more boxy styling would differentiate it from the other pony cars in Wreckfest.

Mini:


The Mini is an iconic European supermini that would be right at home alongside some of the other cars in the game. It would also be the third FWD car, which makes it a nice addition.

Quote from forum member Speedevil: "The Country Squire would be a nice addition, but most of those look a bit similar to cars that are already in the game. I'd rather have more diversity, and I think the devs agree."

My reply: Each of the 10 cars I selected above is iconic to the North American Demolition (Destruction) Derby community and NO iconic Demo cars are currently in the game. The '81 LTD wagon and '80's Caprice / Impala sedan, while widely used in modern Demos, are down sized "Metric" cars and the '74 Monte Carlo and '57 Chevrolet are generally more related with Oval and Figure 8 racing than as Destruction Derby Finale cars. Full sized '60's and '70's American cars of the type most associated with North American Demo Derby are completely absent from the game. I LOVE the '59 Cadillac BUT such cars were rarely seen in Demos after the early '80's AND they are not generally viewed by the Demo community as "good" cars. (i.e. they are soft and require LOTS of work to make competitive) Also, none of the cars I posted above look ANYTHING like any of the cars already in the game.

As for variety, I am not done making suggestions. My above post focused on traditional American Demo cars absent from the game. I then began to comment about a desire for more '50's era cars but since I was limited to 10 pix per post, I ended my comment at that point. I have no objection to them adding the kind of cars that you suggest as well. I happen to like all 3 of your suggestions. (Though I would like to see an ability to limit events based upon car size, region or era in the Custom Events.)

For my next set of suggestions, I would like to suggest a few traditional European "Banger" type cars. (As with my last post, pix are not mine, just jacked from the Net.)

1. European Market Ford Granada Sedan (Saloon). 1568389807703.png

2. European Market Ford Granada Estate (Wagon). 1568389890213.png

3. '70's - '80's Volvo Sedan (Saloon). 1568390217812.png

4. '70's - '80's Jaguar Sedan (Saloon). 1568390238860.png

5. '70's - '80's Rolls Royce Sedan (Saloon). 1568390310005.png

6. A European style Hearse. 1568391184928.png

7. European Ford Granada Limo. 1568391591287.png

8. Anything I may have forgotten! ;)

My next set of suggestions is to add to the currently GM (General Motors) heavy list of traditional North American Oval and Figure 8 cars. I LOVE the '67 Chevelle, '74 Monte Carlo and the '70ish Skylark - Cutlass "hybrid" as well as the Mustang and Challenger but several iconic Circle Track cars are notably absent AND Mopar and FoMoCo are badly under represented.

1. '68 - '72 Chevrolet Nova. 1568392237084.png

2. '67 - '76 Dodge Dart / Plymouth Valiant. 1568392368116.png

3. '69 - '76 Plymouth Duster / Dodge Demon. 1568392480551.png

4. '71 - '74 AMC Javelin. 1568392790099.png

5. '67 - '70 Camaro - Firebird. 1568392850746.png

6. '64 - '65 Chevelle (or Skylark - Tempest - Cutlass, etc.). 1568392993094.png

7. '72 - '76 Ford Torino. 1568393205220.png

8. '71 - '74 Dodge Charger. 1568393300316.png

9. '69 - '70 Mustang. 1568393495227.png

10. '67 - '70 Mercury Cougar. 1568393637436.png

I am sure I forgot a couple of important cars but since I am limited to 10 pix per post I will end this part here.

My next set of suggestions is to add some classic NASCAR / Stock Car style cars. These will be in three groups. First, circa 1969 and second, circa 1980s. The third group, while not used in NASCARs top series were still popular in lower divisions as well as 2 being used for IROC races.

1. '69 - '70 Dodge Charger Daytona / Plymouth Superbird. 1568394665303.png

2. '69 Ford Torino Talledega / Mercury Cyclone. 1568394871016.png

3. '83 - '86 Ford Thunderbird. 1568395128599.png

4. '83 - '89 Chevrolet Monte Carlo. 1568395382472.png

5. '80 - '83 Dodge Mirada. 1568395675354.png

6. '82 - '92 Chevrolet Camaro / Pontiac Firebird. 1568396425170.png
7. '84 - '93 Dodge Daytona / Chrysler Laser. 1568396577487.png

8. '79 - '93 Ford Mustang. 1568396798265.png

I still have a few more suggestions but this is all I am going to post for today. As with my above posts, pix are NOT mine, just swiped off the Interweb.

I agree that all the cars you posted would be nice, but I was saying that based on the size of the car list, which isn't massive. But I understand that you wanted to be comprehensive.

There you go, a Nova. Would love to see my 1973 silver hatchback SS Nova in Wreckfest. My first car I bought when I was 19 with my hop harvest money. :)

For my next set of suggestions, I would like to see some awesome Russian and Australian cars added. (As per usual, not my pix, ripped from the Web.)

Getting back to an idea I originally alluded to in my first post, I would LOVE to see a few more '50's era cars added to the game AND the ability to limit races in Custom Events to specific car sizes, regions or eras. With '50's cars you could recreate either '50's era NASCAR style races OR '70's era Jalopy and Figure 8 style races such as this classic. Link:
The last 2 cars are technically from the early '60's but I think they fit right in with the '50's era vibe of the others AND they are both personal favorites.

Cars I would specifically like to see added from this era include the following:

1. '57 Ford (or a '55 or a '59 but a '57 would best compliment the '57 Chev. 1568482945266.png

2. '57 - '58 Plymouth (yes, THAT car!) AND it would go well with the '57 Ford and '57 Chevy. 1568483090403.png

3. My personal favorite '50's car, the '59 Buick. 1568483221979.png

4. '49 - '52 Buick. 1568483332708.png

5. '53 - '54 Ford. 1568483395668.png

6. '50's era Kaiser Manhattan. 1568483526240.png

7. '50's ear Hudson Hornet (Which was simply fabulous!). 1568483660837.png

8. Any mid '50's Packard. 1568483761615.png

9. '61 Chrysler Newport Sedan (Saloon). 1568484174956.png

10. '61 Dodge Dart Phoenix. 1568484244674.png

I would also like to see at least one of those awesome Mopar Hardtop wagons from the late '50's - early '60's but I have reached the limit on pix for this post so you will just have to go look those up yourself to enjoy their incredible awesomeness!

These or even the next generation of Nova, Ventura, etc. would make an awesome addition to the game. With the next gen. you could recreate some of the old NASCAR Late Model Sportsman races that eventually became the Busch Series.

Règle n ° 1 - aucun véhicule de triche comme Canyon. Tout doit être équilibré en solo / multijoueur.
Règle n ° 2 - vous pouvez choisir les classes (exemple: Derby + Street, Street + Course, véhicules hors bonus)
