Demo Derby

I have a Demo Derby release planned for R3 of JL2.0. I have a couple paint schemes I am tossing around but need to narrow the vehicle down. My first choice was the '73 Caprice wagon, which I have been dying to use again. However, the Olds Vista Cruiser casting has only been used twice. Another one in contention is the '65 Chevy Wagon. I used that casting last in Wicked Wagons R1. To be fair, I have to consider a Ford so I will throw the Country Squire wagon into the mix. Decisions...decisions. What do you guys think?

  1. The 1973 caprice wagon Should be the only choice.It is one of the most iconic demolition derby cars ever,They have been used since the late 70's and are still the most sought after car today.The only other car that would come close in demolition derby popularity is a 1964 -1966 Chrysler Imperial.If you plan on releasing any more derby cars here is a list of cars that would also be great and most of them could also be used as cop cars.
    1974-78 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door
    1974-76 Chevy Impala 4 door
    1964-66 Chrysler Imperial 4 door
    1979-91 Ford Crown Victoria 4 door
    1977-91 Chevy Impala Station wagon or 4 door

  2. pinto wagons.....hatchbacks...and trunk-style pinto's. amc pacer's....pacer wagon's....spirit?

  3. I personally would LOVE to see an entire collection of these demolition derby cars done. I just found out about them and was hoping there was an entire series of them, but to my disappointment, I only know of two. Let me know when you do a whole run of them and I'll buy them all.
