Soliad Wendover

The Soliad Wendover will be an 80s American full-size sedan with a 150 hp V6 engine and front wheel drive.

There's something strangely alluring about horrible 80s American cars, especially the big boaty ones with sporting pretensions. The Soliad Wendover is exactly that - heavy, ugly, and shaped like a wedge. Its ancient cast-iron V6 is barely enough motivation even with a supercharger. This car wishes it was cooler than it actually is.

This car is not currently in-game; work will be started once the Gavril Bluebuck is in-game. It will be the last car added to the game from the original vehicle poll.

Sometime around April/May 2017, the development thread for the Wendover was deleted, although the deletion was probably related to a server bug around that time that scrambled the first few posts in older threads. It is assumed that development of the Wendover has not been cancelled, as Gabester has recently mentioned plans to release the Wendover, during which he also revealed that it will share the same V6 and optional supercharger as the Bruckell Legran:

Yes, [the engine pictured above is] a V6. There will be supercharger options (not pictured) for the V6. There will be an I4 engine as well. The other air cleaner pictured will be used on the lower end engines. The V6 (and optional supercharger) will be used in the Wendover too.

It is also worth noting that the Wendover is planned to be larger than the Legran, being full-sized instead of mid-sized.
