This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Updated December 2008 to be compatable with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game mod.

This car never existed - it is my impressionistic version of a car from

the 1950's - big fins, 4 headlights, lots of chrome and vivid color

combinations inside and out.

Doors and lights work correctly, but I had to disable the WooHoo "fog" effect.

Sims can still WooHoo and Makeout, but there will be no animation -

they will just fade out, make some noises, and fade back in.

The main .zip includes the Mesh and the red/white exterior and interior color options.

The colors .zip includes all the interior and exterior color options shown.

The model was modified from the Maxis sedan using the .Ms3dASCII export/import of SimPE.

Polys = 5475 (Original Maxis Car = 5589)

Thanks to Vampcat, Cevic, Numenor, Pinhead, and Willem for their advice and information about editing the car meshes.

Looks similar to the 1959 or so Chrysler Imperial. Excellent work.

Remember...traffic lights that are timed for 35 MPH are ALSO timed for 70 MPH....

I like it!What are the chances of you bringing your hardtop version of this car over here to MTS2?

Fantastic! I love the look. They just don't make cars with that kind of style and presence anymore. You captured the 'look' beautifully. Thank you so much.

Very nice, thank you!

This is probably something like what Maxis would have made for a 50's car, since they don't make real ones.

Well, it SHOULD have existed, because it's gorgeous. You're way better than Detroit. Could you go take over Ford Motors now? Thank you so much for sharing.

Sir, you are a God.

Thank you for bringing this treasure here. I saw your other 1950's car at TSR and simply marveled at it. Now I can have a couple of Simmies with a classic car like my real-life neighbors.

Wonderful work, sir! It's nice to see you moonlighting over here other than TSR and The Blarney Stone. Actually, there *was* a Viking division for General Motors that existed once, but it ended 27 Years earlier:
