Anyone else have a problem getting these to pop? I've won gold with the car on three different tracks and I can't get them awarded. They don't say anything about a specific track or mode. Any thoughts?

Everyone has trouble with it. You have to use a '73 Trans Am.

You have to win gold in a 1973 Trans Am. No idea why the discrepancy.

This problem raised it's head ages ago. Solve it by buying the 1973 Trans Am with In Game Credits and off to race and win and it pops. I had this problem and tried the 1977 version a few times until I found out on the old boards about the 'coding error'. The chaps who did the coding must have made an error.

I apologize if this questions been asked. I didn't see a way to search the forums. I've been trying unlock the "Win a Gold Medal in a 1977 Firebird Trans Am" badge and title. I've raced in Multiplayer and won gold (3rd place) twice. I've raced in Career and won gold (1st place) twice and the same in Free Play twice. I did unlocked the '63 Beetle in Free Play. Does anyone know if this is a glitch or is there a specfic race that needs to be won?

Search is the top right of the forums page - the magnifying glass.

Having said that - there is an issue with this one and from what others have found the 73 Firebird seems to trigger it. Someone made a mistake in the coding/info for the badge.

Ok, so I have been trying since about week 2 to get the achievement for winning a (A) gold metal in a 77 Trans-Am, so currently I have a dozen Gold Metals, yet the achievement still remains void??

I believe its a misprint, the '73 one will give the achievement, its an error on T10's part

the sd455 is a better car anyway

i do like the irony of the achievement being given to the wrong car

whats next? the famous 'Outatime' achievment being given to the Kubelwagen?
