As said before I don't expect anybody to complete that list (11 out of 15) until April or May - by saying you don't have any of those cars in Finland or elsewhere, do you mean they never ever were sold there or is it just chances of seeing any of them are near zero?

In case on of them isn't sold in your country you simply could delete it and adjust the target percentage to roughly 75% again.

And I think the Magna is the same as the Sigma - that should be an easy one for you then, andyhui :)

As mentioned before, the list is rather aimed at European participants, unfortunately I lack the knowledge of similar rare cars in America or Asia, so I'd be best if someone from there would make up a separate list!

(Can't be that difficult to sit down for ten minutes to think of suitable cars)

Well, along the same vain as mautzel's list, here's some rare, but affoardable cars, going around the US. Some are more prevolant than others, but these are cars that I myself have observed to be hardly noticed (or at least the frequency with which I see these cars has declined recently). Also, two new cars that I haven't quite seen on the road yet...

1) Ford Escort Wagon


2) Chevrolet Corsica


3) Suzuki Samuri


4) Nissan Sentra, b12
(note: this generation Sentra was available as a coupe, 3-door, sedan, and wagon. Any will do.)


5) Dodge Spirit


6) Geo Metro


7) Plymouth Neon -- Remember, that's the two door Neon


8) Volvo 240 sedan


9) Ford Aerostar minivan


10) Honda CRX


11) mid-90's Mitsubishi Diamante


12) Saab 900 Turbo (convertable or hard top, either works)


13) Audi A3
This is a new car, so pictures aren't nessicary!

14) Ford Fusion
Same here!

15) Volkswagen Fox

I think we'll stick with mautzel's 11 out of 15. Should be easy enough. Yeah, sure go ahead and add it in the other thread if you wish.

:shock: Good that I didn't set up the US list - I'd definitely have counted the Escort Wagon, the Corsica, the Spirit and the Aerostar as cars you see once a day. Now I'm really looking forward for an Asian list :)

Yeah, April seems to be one month ahead this year - with the exception that the snow doesn't mealt immediately. Luckily the sky is blue now, so I'll use the light and go running a bit :)

That's one of the problems with creating one of these lists, the person who makes them goes off of what's rare in their area. Honestly, the only cars that I can get access to are the Sentra (my brother has my old one) and possibly the escort wagon. I would've had access to the Saab 900 Turbo, but my friend doesn't go to school here at ERAU anymore...

Also, with the exotics list, I can get like 5 each of the Evo's and the WRX's just on campus...

Like my friend (former Panda owner) once said: there's only one Panda and it's not Spanish! (Sorry, but if I give you the Panda I'd have to give Overheat the saloon Rover 800 and somebody else something different and so on.

Don't worry, even if someone gets a couple of cars within a day it doesn't mean that he'll get all to fulfill the target that easily (though nine cars are quite a lot,I hardly doubt that anybody has more than three cars from my list, but then, they're really exotic everywhere in Europe nowadays. On the other hand, it'll motivate people to participate if they actually see that you can reach the target, mine really isn't a good example in that case :lol: )

EDIT: if they're really too simple, ask for rare colours of that model to make it a little bit more interesting (or should I say long-lasting :))

For heaven's sake, if you should find a Chinese Panda crossing the street somewhere in the Main-Taunus area right in front of you AND you accidentally have your camera with you I'll give it to you (Uh, oh, any Chinese members on the board recently) :mrgreen:
