Are you planning to fit a troll in the trunk??

... because that is what's bigger in a sedan...

Somethink like Lada Niva or Suzuki Jimny makes more sense with the description.

Yeah, I know...  I guess I was going too far into the style than into how it was described.  The lack of art for it, yeah...

Well, go with whatever vision you want for the vehicle.  It's a four-seater with an overly loud, underpowered engine that was designed specifically to be as unsellable as possible.

And became a market hit.

I really need to re-read the Krime Katalog more slowly, to appreciate all of this sort of thing :D

So, um....My Naga shaman(mystic adept/face)  is in need of a ride after the bus driver for his route figured out he floats invisible on the ceiling  of his bus..... any suggestions from the krime Katalog?

I know it will rely on grid guide to start with... our rigger is not giving lessons till he owns his own vehicle.

For a Naga, I'd suggest a Krime Wageslave PMV.  He'll actually be able to reach the pedals at the very front of the vehicle, and will be able to get into the vehicle a lot more easily than a typical Troll (the open hatch on the top of the vehicle is actually the door to get in!).  I'd suggest some sandbags for ballast, as, if the operator isn't heavy enough, it's tippy as frag.  Also, it'd be good as a starter vehicle so that your Rigger will finally teach you to drive.  Just don't expect to be doing any 'runs in it, the performance isn't there, but it'll get you to meets even better than sneaking on the bus did!

If you want something beefier, the Krime Bazoo is a second choice, being a troll-sized subcompact, and at least having four wheels.  I'd suggest a Redline model for a Shadowrunner as it has better performance to start with before you start modding the vehicle.  (And, let's face it, it needs as much help as it can get!).

If you got a fat credstick, and your Rigger is also a Shadow Wrench (or you get a Shadow Wrench as a contact), go with the Krime SV-2 "Crashtest".  You won't need to modify it for protection, but you will need to do things to the engine to make it even more impressive.  Make it earn those boss exhausts!!!  Alternatively, a Krime DeTruck is cheaper, and lets you haul around more in it's 1/2-Ton Bed (I suggest getting a cover of some sort so that it isn't out and open, even a tarp and some bungie cords will suffice.).  It's an attraction machine, but that isn't always a bad thing, and, as always, is underpowered so get you some engine work.

What can I say, all the really good engine designs are owned by the major automotive corps that are AA+ Corporations.  Also, Krime didn't want these vehicles to sell.   ;D
