To be honest my pictures were the only reason I added both Cortina and R19, but I will change them in a sec.

2004 Robertone Chevrolet Impala Cabrio
It used a wreck of old Impala as a base for custom convertible used in the musical Hair. After a sucessful play the car was parked outside overnight, where some hooligans destroyed it completly and the car was sent to scrap.
I couldnt find any technical data so far, not sure if any dimensons are to be found to be honest.

Clio RS is fine, what makes the Civic Si situation even more ridiculous, seeing both of them are performance models.

How can you tell? Without the grill the only thing I was going off of was the lack of side mirrors, otherwise they all look the same to me

Suzuki (Europe)
sajmon14 wrote Well we should have some sort of "depends on setting rule". For example a Trabant 1.1 can be classified as "not enough interesting" for someone but for me or JFK such car would be really unique or rare etc. Dunno if the Trabant was good example but you should understand my point.

Suzuki (Europe) A convertible or cabriolet is an automobile body style that can convert between an open-air mode and an enclosed one, varying in degree and means by model.

Off-road: Another type of convertibles is the off-road vehicles with removable soft tops such as Jeep Wrangler, Suzuki Escudo, Suzuki Samurai, Ford Bronco, Land Rover Defender, Mercedes-Benz G-Class, early models of Toyota Land Cruiser, Land Rover Defender, etc. All these models are available with various types of soft tops that attach to the roll cage or to the installation points on the vehicle's body.

- Only the following vehicles will be accepted: Coupés, Convertibles, Sports Cars, Luxury Cars (> € 80,000), Race Car, Concept Car and Collection Cars (> 30 years).

I really think about quitting this "competition" altogether.

subliminalglory wrote Can anyone enlighten me as to why anyone would buy this car other than to show off how much money they have? MSRP is $755,000 and I know it isn't $600,000 better than a regular G63 AMG!

Maybe the owner doesnt like mainstream and he is willing to pay much more for uniquess, despite the car wont justify its pricetag :)

1977 Škoda 763
Rinspeed, I just want to clarify something if the year of engines and production dont match/confuse you. Only one car was produced with automatic gearbox, but after year of testing the gearbox wasnt very reliable, so Skoda switched it for the manual gearbox. 2017-04-18 19:52
1968-1969 Škoda 1000 MB
This doesnt look like 1969 model, but the indicators differ from the red car, I am doing research on what model this is.

EDIT: I didnt found any indicators that are looking like these do.

There isnt anything to be identified, you did a good job :P 2017-04-11 16:43
1976-1983 Škoda 105 L [Typ 742]
Personally I would go as accurate as it can get. Not in a way of - "I asked the owner and it is that and that year, so I am going to list it as this year only", because you could get multiple cars that are the same, but this way:
If car can be identified as a certain year because it is unique for the year, I would go for it. In case of some modifications or unaccurate result, information of the owner can be used to pinpoint the year of the car (accurate points for the car), but the car is listed as on normal WCS pages.

1976-1983 Škoda 105 L [Typ 742]
Desscythe17 wrote If you can pinpoint the year as 1981, you should place it as 1981 Skoda 105. I don't know if the changes are big enough to warrant seperate WCS pages?

1981-1983 would be possible to separate, but it wouldnt be really much accurate since lot of gradual changes were made in that period.

1976-1983 Škoda 105 L [Typ 742]
tbh this is probably 1981, because the rear end was done 1980-1981 and the front end 1981-1983

Price when new 12 263$, converted to 2017 dollars = 27 256$,
to euros it is 25 551€ ==> 2 points for price because 10 000€ is 1 point
30 years of age 3x multiplier

6 points, am I missing something?

speedfreak975 wrote
elaborate ?

Sports cars, convertibles, expensive cars over 80 000 euros, prototypes and cars over 30 years and that kind of stuff. I guess the car wasnt considered special enough. Prototypes have 100 points by default, race cars 10, regular street cars are rewarded by pricetag when new.. Multiplier is given when the car is older.

EDIT Also it might be cars that arent that old but they werent imported officially, like US and JDM stuff, but dont quote me on that.

Rinspeed wrote i think i had already see it near to my home in november. German manufacturers seems to do a lot of test near to my home in the Mont Ventoux (a mountain). I had see a lot of cars before release with little camouflage or heavy camouflage: BMW X6, 1 Cabriolet, 7, Mercedes S Klasse, the new Panamera (a convoy of 4 or 5) in june 2016 without camouflage...

I think they test on there fuel pump. I have a book about developement of Skoda Favorit and the main man who constructed it says there that lot of european brands test it there.
