    Rules:
    • Only two cars per person until your car has been polled. Once the car is given a polling thread, then you are free to make another suggestion.
    • Do not nominate any of the exact same vehicles that have already been polled. I am not responsible for accidental re-polling of cars. It is the nominator's job to make sure that their car has not been polled yet.
    • Cars similar to ones already polled must have a significant difference that makes them a separate entity. If your nomination is questioned, I will tag you in a post asking you to defend your nomination, you will have 24 hours from that tag to provide a good enough defence, or you will be knocked from the queue.
    • Race cars are not allowed (see this post).
    • As of May 28th 2016, concept cars, prototypes and pre-production models will not be allowed regardless of functionality (post).
    • Modified production models from official performance divisions such as NISMO are allowed. Either as a standalone nomination or part of a nomination that covers the car on which it's based.
    • One-off modified/custom models are not allowed. If the car is questionable, I will ask for proof of production.
    • Coachbuilds are allowed. These are being defined as a car that uses the unmodified production underpinnings, but has a custom built body.
    • A nomination must have different specs, or be different enough visually from a previously polled/nominated car in order to be a valid nomination.
    • Only nominations made in this thread will be added to the list, please do not write on my GTP profile, PM me or e-mail suggestions. Doing so will earn you a 1 month ban from nominating cars for the cool wall.
    • Get your nomination right the first time.
    • If your nomination is correct, it will appear in the nomination cue below shortly after the nomination is made.
    • If your nomination is incorrect, I will list off what info you need to correct your post.
    • Posts that need fixing will lose their spot in the queue if another nomination is posted between the incorrect nomination and the final correction.
    • Cars will be selected in chronological order, so it's first come first served.
    • Nominations, rules suggestions, and other directly connected discussion only here. Save debates for the polls.
    • Please try and be original.
    • Fixed nominations go to the bottom of the queue.
    • Use the quotes provided below, replacing what I have put in for your own correct information.
    • The Cool Wall curator reserves the right to find a different image than the one the car was nominated with.
    • If your nomination is not in the queue, please tag me in a post and include a link to the post that contains your nomination.
    • You may change your nomination whenever you want. However, any changed nominations will be pushed to the bottom of the queue.
    The Official Cool Wall results thread

    How it Works:
    • You nominate a car and it goes into the queue, assuming you followed the rules.
    • One poll will be made every other day.
    • The poll will be left open for ten days allowing member to vote on the five levels of coolness.
    • Polled cars will be placed in one of seven sections.
    • Placement on the wall will be determined by a voting formula.
    • Italics means the car is a second nomination made during a special event.

    Just a heads up, the LFA thread will be started either tomorrow or Tuesday, after the third P.O. poll closes, so I know how to set the voting up.

    Also, I hadn't mentioned this, but with as little participation as I've seen (no offence folks, but 10-20 isn't an encouraging number, not when 70s and up were normal before dormancy), if the quere empties out I'll start thowing in whatever I can. I will not let this simply die.

    Update 5/21: Rules are now set. Don't like them, should have spoken up.

    Height: 50.3 inches
    Width: 70.2 inches
    Weight: 2,699 lbs
    Price: $3,992 (Retail 1976)
    Laguna Seca Lap Time: 1:39:31
    Skidpad: 1.2g
    60-0 Braking: 120ft


    What's so special about these rather crap figures when compared to the legends before it?

    ~ The car is cheap to purchase from just about any junkyard, and even on in perfect shape will run about $2,500.
    ~ The car is incredibly small, compact and light, more so in every dimension except width (only larger by 1 inch) than the famed Fox Body after it.
    ~ Managed 24-31mpg (standard and Stallion models), amazing by 1970s standards
    ~ Makes a cheap and powerful street machine, great for newcomers to the sport
    ~ Engine is extremely reliable, proven after 40 years of installation in production vehicles, many of which are still on the road with high miles
    ~ Engine can be woken up to be a real performer with the slightest of mods. Ex. Complete exhaust system, intake and carb will yield 80+ horsepower. More expensive mods such as heads and cam will guarantee 150+ horsepower increase while staying on pump gas
    ~ HEFTY availability of aftermarket powertrain parts
    ~ Turns heads more than most Mustangs because of the awkward styling and overall rareness/scarcity
    ~ Tall geared rear and with a good tire combination yields perfect acceleration and top speed without sacrificing either
    ~ Because of the lightness of the car it can become a really quick car
    ~ Car is one of the biggest selling Mustangs of all time, it came at a time very much needed.
    ~ Despite popular belief, the Mustang II only shares 10% of it's parts with the Ford Pinto.
    ~ IMSA recommends earplugs for anyone that gets within 10 feet of the car

    Does no-one want a piece in this? It's been a week without nominations. If I run out, I promise I will find some of the most vile possible suggestions.

    This isn't closing, and now that the Cool Wall has been reordered, I plan to go two polls per week, Sunday night and Wednesday night.

    Bring on the picks!

    I guess I was expecting lots of responses. Like seemingly everthing I do, not many get behind it until I hand it over to someone else, then everyone, their dog, and their dead grandparents get behind the motion. Probably frustration taking hold on my end.

    Under everyone else, the request had to be limited and cut-off. At this rate, we'll be done in two months.

    1990–1995 Mazda Eunos Cosmo, JC series
    [​IMG]

    Body Style: 2-door coupe, 2+2 seating

    Specifications:
    Engine: 1.3L 13B-REW OR 2.0L 20B-REW
    Transmission: 4-speed automatic
    Wheelbase: 2,750 mm (108 in)
    Length: 4,815 mm (190 in)
    Width: 1,795 mm (71 in)
    Curb weight: 1,490 kg (3,285 lb) OR 1,640 kg (3,616 lb)
    Top Speed:180 km/h (111.8 mph) OR 255 km/h (158.4 mph)
    0-60: Unavailable

    Why is this special and cool: A few different things. First would be the 20B-REW engine, a triple-rotor rotary engine. Largest displacement ever offered on a production rotary-engine car. Made over 300 horsepower and around 300 lb-ft of torque.

    Another cool point is that it got the dual sequential turbocharger setup in both engines offered before the FD RX-7 did. It also had many technological advancements as well, such as being the first production car in the world to get a GPS option.

    Cons: Not many in my eyes, but including;
    ~Heavy fuel consumption when being pushed;
    ~Price; [The JC Cosmo was expensive even by today's standards, as Mazda still has not matched the sales price of this car some 22 years later for anything else in its range.]

    Body Style(s): 2-door sedan, 2-door station wagon, & doorless jeep.

    Engine: 0.6 Liter, 2 cylinder 2-stroke
    Max Power: 27 HP @ 4200 RPM
    Max Torque: 38 lbs-ft @ 3000 RPM
    0-62 M/H (0-100 Km/h): 21 Seconds
    Top Speed: ~70 Mph (~112 km/h)
    Gearbox: 4-speed manual

    Weight: Somewhere between 1100-1300 lbs (5-600 KG)
    Length: 140 in. (3555 mm)
    Width: 59.3 in. (1505 mm)
    Height: 56.7 in (1440 mm)

    Fun fact: Top Gear's claim that the Trabant was made of cotton is partially true. The car used a steel monocoque and the hood, doors, fenders, bumpers roof & trunk lid were made from Duroplast, a plastic reinforced with recycled material, including wool and/or cotton waste. However, the body couldn't be properly disposed of, as it wasn't able to be recycled further & burning the body would create toxic fumes.

    Based on the Holden HSV Commodore, this Aussie bruiser is a gentle giant that can be as docile as a Ford Fiesta, before demolishing rivals in huge clouds of tyre smoke and supercharger noise. It's simple caveman-esque nature compared to an equivalent E60 M5 make it a barrel of laughs when driven hard.

    (Image is just taken from a google image search by the way. Feel free to find a better one, although preferably one with the above livery or the Gulf livery)



    Constructor: Porsche AG

    Head Designer(s): Ferdinand Piëch and Helmuth Bott



    Chassis: Spaceframe

    Suspension (front): unequal upper and lower arms, coil springs, Bilstein dampers

    Suspension (rear): unequal upper and lower arms, coil springs, Bilstein dampers

    Engine: Porsche 912.10, 4,907cc, 180º V12, Naturally Aspirated, mid-engine, longitudinally mounted

    Transmission: 5 speed Manual

    Fuel: Shell, Gulf

    Tyres: Dunlop



    Notable entrants: Gulf-Wyer, Martini Racing, Porsche Salzburg

    Notable drivers: Hans Herrman, Richard Attwood, Vic Elford, Gerard Larousse, Gijs van Lennep, Dr. Helmut Marko etc. etc. etc.

    Debut: 1969 1000km Spa

    Le Mans overall victories: 2 (1970, 1971)

    Final Le Mans: 1981 24 Heures du Mans

    Final Race: 1971 Brands Hatch 6 Hours



    Trivia: The Martini Racing #22 Porsche 917 of Gijs van Lennep and Dr. Helmut Marko broke the overall distance record for Les 24 Heures du Mans with their overall victory at the 1971 event. Travelling 5,335.313 km over 397 laps. This record, mainly due to modifications to the circuit, would not be broken until 2010 when the Joest Racing #9 Audi R15 TDI+ of Timo Bernhard, Romain Dumas and Mike Rockenfeller ran a distance of 5,410.7 km over the course of 397 laps.

    Also, in qualifying for the 1971 24 Heures du Mans, the Gulf-sponsored polesitting #18 car of J.W Automotive Engineering set what remains as the fastest lap of the Circuit de la Sarthe ever recorded, a 3:13.900! Admittedly the reason this lap time has not yet been broken is again, due to the modification and installation of chicanes at the circuit, primarily in 1972 and 1990, but the feat still remains impressive.

    Also. I have to say it. Steve McQueen.​

    Are you choosing cars to poll randomly off the list or in order?

    Chronological order. First come, first served.
