What should the "Vintage" car manufacturer's name be?

Postby Chris_CE » Tue Oct 04, 2016 4:25 pm

I'll be making a poll with a bunch of choices once there's some more ideas posted in this thread by you guys (if there will be any)

Ideas for the poll so far are:

VinTek
VinTech
Retronica

+1 Since it's the Vintage branch of GRIP's cars, I vote VinTek. With a "k".

If "Vintek" will go through, eastern Europe region will always have a "chuckle" when seeing that name, guarantee.

I personally like Retronica :D Sounds like something people from future would come up when thinking of a brand name that makes retro like cars.

Is there any story as to why they're making vintage styled cars? Might help with the naming. Like the manufacturers name could be First Class (or whatever) that specializes in luxury cars with vintage designs and that series is called Retronica. Trying to cash in on the new major sport.

Seems kinda weird to have a manufacturer name itself after vintage cars specifically unless that's all they make. Maybe their main clients are the rich that live on Orbital Prime who want to show off.

Can't remember if we had a story for that. Joe just came out with cool concepts and everyone was on board.

I believe the 1st model was built with the idea of an old and rusty lady. Vintage, as in, from the early days of GRIP racing or something. But your backstory of collectible cars for rich Orbital Primers works too (the blue car needs more chrome anyway ^^)

Retronica makes me thing of like... vintage digital stuff. This is really analog vintage stuff, so my vote goes to VinTek. Retronica just doesn't sound right to me.

I asked somebody and she likes Vintek most and i tend more to Retronica.

But just "Vintage" sounds better to me than all three.


Some more ideas, just because but not necessarily good ones:

Classitron (classic)

Hotsy-tronics (= hotsy-totsy found it in the dictionary sounded cool)

Roartech

Roaring Glory

Silvertech

Goldworks

Stars Pride

Seems people like all different things.

I think we'll either go for simply "Vintage" or "Vintek"

Vintage is too obvious imo. Like yeah, we get it there`s some old technology innit. Vintek is a better choice imo

I like that vintage vehicles dont only look 'vintage' but also reminiscent of RC1 vehicles. It kind of connects the two franchises. Like GRIP exists in a distant future beyond the rollcage leagues.

I dont mind just going with vintage - its got a good feel
