Since 2014 Cadillac Escalade Series IV [GMTK2XX]
carcrasher88 wrote Should be 2014 only, 2015+ (2016+ model year in the US) Escalades have the new Cadillac crest, and apparently the chrome around the lower intake was also slimmed down a bit. 2017 model year and newer models have an updated grille and headlights, while the center console was redesigned for the 2018 model year.

I'm aware of this change. However, it's a very minor facelift, which combined with a lack of good pictures of the post-facelift model doesn't really deserve a separate page.

1969-1970 Oldsmobile Vista Cruiser Series II [A-Body]
Interestingly enough, the Vista Cruiser until 1973 and the Buick Sport Wagon until 1970 had a much longer wheelbase than the sedans they were based on. They have three rows of seats and distinctive skylights in the raised roof.
The Sport Wagon from 1970 onwards returned to the shorter wheelbase and lost the skylights, as did the Vista Cruiser when the new generation of GM A-Body cars launched for 1973.

1982-1994 OTO Melara R 2.5 Gorgona
escortlover wrote Any idea on what this is. is it some sort of amphibious vehicle?

I believe so, the brand produces different military vehicles and weapons, so it was probably built as a rescue and heavy duty vehicle.

1992-1994 Autozam Clef
Mr. Avanzato wrote Built on Mazdas GE platform meaning it is related to the Cronos, MS-6 and Telstar

My bad, I had in my head that the Clef was a hardtop. I won't connect it to the MS-6, because that is a hatchback.

1992-1994 Autozam Clef
carcrasher88 wrote Anyone ever notice how similar the back end of the Clef is to a Pontiac Grand Am of the same time period? Not virtually identical, but there's some very clear similarities.

Yeah you're right. I think it's a coincidence though.

I think it looks cool in the rear, but I'm not a fan of the front.

Apparently it even has two different doors:

Rinspeed why did you discontinue it? It's still for sale on the French CitroŽn website. 2018-07-14 12:31
Holden So I did some maintenance on this page, as the line-up was completely outdated. Unfortunately, I can't add any new cars since the current Holden website doesn't list specifications for its cars (whatever happened to informing the consumer?)...

TLDR: The Holden page will be empty for the foreseeable future.

Since 2018 Ford Mustang Bullitt MkVI
Rinspeed wrote ?? it's a limited series, i don't think there is change about engine. Why a page for it?

It has 20 more hp than the normal Mustang, and the other Bullitts also have a separate page since they were created before the limited edition system existed, so I don't know if they should have pages or not.

When you have money for car, money for fuel isn't a problem...

It has superior torque to the petrol V8, so I guess it's better for towing horses? Or maybe it's for the rich people who prefer to pollute the environment even more.

It's a nice week for any Toyota fans, with the all-new Century releasing a few days ago, and today the all-new Crown and Corolla Sport being released.
Pictures are placeholders as they come from a news website that sometimes does and sometimes doesn't put watermarks on pictures.

Well the 91-93 model has red - top and orange - bottom, whereas the 89-91 model has orange - top and red - bottom. So looking at these pictures, I can tell Red, (probably) Brown and Blue are all wrong.

Except that if we erase some things like bonus points or carspotting, we need to replace them in menu at the top of te page

We could make a new list of makes? We can rename the existing one "A-Z makes" and have a new one with only big (American, European, Japanese, Korean) makes, for easier searching.

Webcarstory
Rinspeed wrote Problem with removing points is that allow or not to translate IGCD or WCS. What can we do with that?

I don't know, is there any way for you to see how many people use WCS/IGCD in another language? I think the great majority uses the English page, so maybe we could get rid of translations.
You could also leave the languages we have now, because I don't think any new ones have been added in a very long time.

No Car engine etc added successfully isn't a request.
Perhaps the points yes. I think also the note for intro in IGCD, the note for car in WCS (not used), the cars for the stars (i don't see them used)? Points for Carspotting? Tell me what you think and some things that we could erase without impact.

Sounds good to me, everything that isn't used or rarely used can go.

Rinspeed wrote
Example for IGCD:

Same things for WCS but with a lot more requests as there is a lot more differents sections

I see, well if there is a problem with too many requests from the database, it looks like a lot of requests go to updating points.
I personally don't really care about points (don't know about other members), and I think we don't really need them to judge whether a member can be an admin or not.
So if it would be better for the database, points can be deleted entirely in my opinion.

I also don't know if it helps at all, but the page you get saying "Car/engine/location/whatever added successfully." doesn't seem necessary for me. If you add an engine for example and then immediately return to the car page, that works fine. It would even save time I think. I don't know if that has any impact on database requests though.

Webcarstory
Rinspeed wrote Some news about the problems of IGCD and Webcarstory. This seems due to an overload on the site (a lot of visitors and a lot of request at the database). I had pay more to prevent that but they said that there is a lot of request in the database that could do problem also. So, just to see, is there fonctionnality that you see that there are useful in IGCD and WCS? I don't have the time now but i can do the list of the request to the database for the pages games/car in IGCD and make/car in WCS if you want to see them.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean with request at the database. What would you like to see from us?

Since 2018 Lexus ES
The Lexus ES, which has been mostly North America-exclusive since its start in 1989, is scheduled to be introduced to Japan.
It is the likely successor to the GS, which will be slowly phased out after the ES's introduction.

Seeing how the GS will not get a new generation, it will be interesting to see whether the ES will also come to Europe, or if there will be a gap between the IS and LS.

EDIT: I just checked the Dutch Lexus website, and while the GS is no longer listed, it does list the ES as an upcoming car. I guess this confirms that the ES is now becoming a global model.

Since 2018 Honda N-Van
carcrasher88 wrote Fifth member of Honda's H-Family of kei cars, I take it? Nice to see them continuing to be dedicated to expanding the lineup. Is it supposed to be a Vamos and/or Vamos Hobio replacement, or something to compliment the Acty lineup, similar to how the Daihatsu Hijet Caddie (commercial variant of the Wake) compliments the Hijet lineup?

It is in fact scheduled to be the successor to the Vamos and take the N-Series to the commercial market. It also doesn't have a B-pillar in order to make loading from the side easier.

The Honda N-Box (even before it entered the second generation) suddenly became extremely popular in Japan and dethroned the Daihatsu Move and Suzuki Wagon R, which have dominated sales in this specific class for over 20 years. Honda is hoping this success rubs off on the similar N-Van.

The cars were sold through Toyota's own dealer network.

You can't, because you're not an admin. I have changed them for you.
Right now, you are missing torque and rpm on the engine you added, and there is also an automatic version of the same engine.

If you prefer, you can also start over with a new page and we will delete the one you have already made.

2000-2003 Toyota RAV4 (RAV4 J, RAV4 L) Mk.II
Like a few other Toyotas, the RAV4 came in different versions for different dealership networks. The RAV4 J was for the Netz network, and the RAV4 L was for the Corolla network.

The only visual difference seems to be the grille, with a diagonal pattern for the J, and a horizontal pattern for the L. After the facelift in 2003, the two models this difference disappeared, and the models became identical.

This page is for the Japanese market Honda, so the European market one would need its own page in Honda (Europe).
