The vehicle people call a "Hummer" is actually called Saerimner and is a replica of the BAE Systems terrain transport vehicle which in Sweden is called "Galten". A Galt is a pig.

In Viking mythology the pig Särimner is eaten every night and then on the next day he stands in his box, prepared for slaughter and eating again.

IMO it's a bit lame to use this vehicle design. It was probably out of the box from CE2. The Valkyria car is much more futuristic and fits better in to our world. I think MA/FPC should announce a design competition for the next vehicles, letting the community design them so we don't have to see old relic cars in the Scifi world called Calypso.

Price coud be your own car and then they could start to drop a limited amount of the BP's for it.

I think we may see a stretched limo or two UL one day with a high TT (10k?)

A mix of futuristic and contemporary is fine by me. :)

Yeah, but that's about pronouncing. Here we talk about the lamenisnes of ucing a modell like the Galten terrain vehicle. No imagination.

Its a useful design. There are other cars that are fairly similar and there will also be in the future. Think about it, they could have used the Bv206 as the model :p
