    That was very much on purpose. ;) Still, astonishing how much in that little clip could plausibly have related to current speculations - there's refueling, and a character that gets out of the car and walks somewhere, not to mention the whole '80s digidash aesthetic.

    I felt the need to leave a few breadcrumbs lying out to cover myself - just in case the trick backfired spectacularly on me and started trouble.

    I don't know if a Powerglow Wendover would necessarily need engine upgrades over the current setup of the Custom Legran. That thing is still surprisingly quick.

    What does make me wonder is the fact that last I checked, the '96 Pessima has had hillclimb parts for a long time now, yet nothing's been done on the performance end of things.

    True, but the other Powerglow cars are things like SBR4s, Bolides, and turbo 200BXes. The only thing that's even close to being as slow as the LeGran is the Moonhawk, which is likely there more to meet bird-on-the-hood quota than because it fits the setting. Also, the Soliad is likely going to be heavier than the LeGran while sharing the same engines with the same power.

    Alright gang lets split up when we look.

    On a note that I haven't seen anyone else touch upon, I'm curious to know what the badge for Soliad will look like. Looking at the one picture and one video doesn't give much about it other than the general shape of the outline appears to be a shield. Due to Soliad being owned by Buckell, and that the Wendover appears to be based off of Pontiac, it is my belief that the badge will carry some sort of resemblance to the Pontiac badge.

    I've been pondering that myself. Looking at the video of the rotating wireframe, I think I see that there's a bar across the top of the shield, and I think 'Soliad' will be spelled out in that area, leaving the rest of the badge for some sort of stylized decoration.

    I don't see the badge repeated on the rear, just what looks like a keyhole for a locking trunk, so I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that they're going to do one of the four things Buick did in the late eighties & early nineties:

    I mean, this thread was used for speculation and would be right now if this whole thing wasn't happening. Deleting the thread generally isn't a good idea, especially under these circumstances. Plus, even if you don't think it, there is more stuff to speculate, you just gotta look hard enough. :)

    Non functional center of the taillight? There are lights behind the Buick script on the back of Reattas.

    Amogus memes aside, here's what I predict the Soliad badge will be.

    Man, Among Us fell from grace more quickly than anything else, didn't it? Lasted just long enough to kill off Fall Guys and then the algorithm turned against it.
