Incorrect spelling/listing

My bad, the company name changed in 1991 only, but the logo and advertisements did indeed use La Poste from 1984 onwards (pdf, fr).
So, corrected version: the La Poste name shouldn't be used for pre-84 vehicles :wink:

In fact, and if I'm not mistaken, the Renault 4 Fourgonnette used by the PTT people was made for all French administration services (EDF/GDF, ONF, firemen...), and the main difference with the other vans was just a small additional window on the cargo box side (called "vitre administration" by this car spare part site). Should we then use "Administration" as complement, as was more or less suggested by sixcyl at least once and as is done for now for specific 4-window Renault R4 and some Citroën DS/ID??

For the other vehicles (Goélette, Galion, Estafette...), I'm not sure that the specs were different from factory models: this complement is most probably not relevant, in these cases.

Why not. That's probably more accurate than using "La Poste" as model/extra info :smile:

Just noticed this one in "Family Guy". Listed as a 1979 Ford LTD Country Squire, given that it's a parody of National Lampoon's Vacation, but the greenhouse is clearly that of a Ford Fairmont Squire.

Hello, is this where they put corrections on vehicles? If so, I'll just have something to correct:
1. This should be "L-300 FB"
https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_1378088-Mitsubishi-L-300.html
2. Should be a Lancer
https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_1309598-Mitsubishi-Mirage-C60-1987.html
3. Should be Tamaraw FX, not Kijang. Unless if we will stay true to the setting.
https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_1309593-Toyota-Kijang-KF40-1993.html
4. Pretty sure they were just sold here as Chrysler 300 Cs, regardless of trims, etc...
https://www.imcdb.org/vehicle_1309621-Chrysler-300-LX-2005.html
5. Quite sure that these Ford vans weren't sold as Econolines of this model years (excluding grey import campervans)
They were just E-150, E-250, E-350, etc... I could be wrong on this one, maybe you could just ignore this vehicle.

Literally my first comment here on this forum, hope to make friends and stuff. I might look somehow annoying on these request but just want to make the listings right. I do make mistakes when identifying cars on the "unindentified" section of the page, but as humans we all make mistakes. :smile: :alarmclock2:

Normally when you post something in comments, admins will try to check what is posted and apply changes.
Sometimes they wait for confirmation from other members when the info is coming from new members and they can't verify themselves.
Sometimes it is just missed, due to a high number of comments.
If after a few days the comment seems missed, that can be reported on the forum, but not here.
Here it is normally for discussing changes to apply to larger ranges of vehicles.
For such individual corrections it is rather there, in the "Non-Unidentified" thread in the General section:
https://imcdb.opencommunity.be/forum_topic-1987-76888-Non_Unidentified_Vehicles.html#p76888

I've applied the changes.
About the Chrysler 300 C, indeed, in Europe and some Asian countries the C was part of the name.

For the Ford, at some point they started to use E-Series instead of Econoline. It is not fully clear when they changed the name, depending on the sources it is 1992, 1998 or 2002 (or something like that), we used one of the two latter ones.
