The dark side of TopDrives

OzzmanOzzman Member Posts: 1,056 ✭✭✭✭✭

Nothing evil in here don't worry, the name of the thread refers to the dark side of the moon. We all know the moon has a side that can never be seen from Earth, and wonder what's on the other side. The cars in TopDrives are the same, because we only get one photo of each car. Some cars we can only see from the back, some from the front, we have to imagine, or look up the rest. This thread is supposed to do the latter. Here are three examples to get started, feel free to add the ones that surprise you the most.

We all love the Honda Beat, but have you ever wondered how it looks like 'not from the back'?

Another famous car is the 1970 Chevy El Camino SS 454. Before the American Dream update, where more El Caminos were added, the only thing suggesting that this car is in fact a pick-up truck was the body style shown on the back of the card (and the little car shown while racing it). So I was a bit surprised back then when I found this out.

Finally, the mighty Dodge Stealth, very recognizable back, but how does it's face look like? Well, a bit like an ant-eater. :)

    Actually, many cars in TD I dont like and have some inner feeling that its bad only because of photo. And only after checking other real photos of car I change my opinion that this car is awesome.

    In the Game the Audi RS7 looks very equal to the RS6. But you can‘t see this beautiful back. 😉

    I like the back and side of the multipla. Even if it's not your style it's a nicely executed design, with consistency in design across all elements.  Far better than many cars on sale today that are just a hodgepodge of random elements. It was only the top of the bonnet that let it down.

    Alfa Romeo Spyder's back. Pure Italian car pornography.

    the TVR Sagaris...

    Raddest exhaust of ALL TIME, same goes with that paint job (it was a stock colour!)

    More Italian stuff to get excited about! the 20v Turbo has one of the nicest engines ever, a 5-pot making a ridiculously excellent noise.


    Forgotten Japanese classic...


    Not hard to see why some argue that this is the most beautiful car of all time... the Lancia Montecarlo


    Front of the Rallying Datsun.

    Not the same spec, but interesting rear end indeed. the A310 V6 Turbo.


    the Alcyone SVX's rear looks dope:


    Not Subaru's best effort...

    The Chevrolet K5 Blazer 5.7L could use a new photo...

    Everytime I see one, it reminds me of this:

    I wouldn't go plumbing the depths of the top drive server unless topless midgets are your thing.

    @Pulsatingstar would like to show the dark side of his RX7 in this thread too...

    When you say beautiful you mean slopebacked and ugly right? The thing is not just ugly but lazy too.

    Say what you like about the multipla, at least it's interesting (or was before it's mid life bland-lift) and Innovative, unlike the bleedin' rs7.

    A XT ? Lol please dont tell me that's a LOW ground clearance XT
    Bear in mind wheels were a lot smaller back then, the XT came on 13", 14" or 15" wheels.

    What's that last blue one ?

    Lol you can see from even the TD picture that it's clearly not low. This wheels would have to be the size of go-kart wheels for it to be low. Same goes for a lot of TD cars... like just look at the picture when you make these cars, please Hutch.

    I get that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I've never been one for the SZ's styling.

    The mighty Mehari, look at it in action:

    Mercedes A180d, one of the best commons:

    Chrysler Prowler, not a particularly good car, just interesting:

    Lotus 340R:

    The RS200, one of the most useful cars:

    Paganis always have interesting backs, I like the exhaust, this is a Zonda F:

    And finally the Brera S, I saw one the other day, and this gave me the idea for this thread, as a bonus, this car is the same one that we have in TD, check the license plate:
