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.

1939 Viking Convertible by Dr Pixel - updated Dec 6, 2008 to work with Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game add -on.

Polys = 5199 (Original Maxis Car = 6514)

This is another car that never existed - this one is my interpretation of a car from the 1930's/1940's

The basic body shell is modified from a mesh found at 3d Cafe http://www.3dcafe.com/

The seats, tires, and steering wheel came from Maxis cars.

The rest was created from scratch.

Meshwork was done using MilkShape and the UniMesh plugins, and also the .ms3dascii import/export built in to SimPE.

It is a drivable vehicle, it REQUIRES the NightLife expansion pack or Numenor's Drivable Cars without NightLife game add on.

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

There is a slight animation glitch - as the Sims get in/out of the car, their hand will go through the door for an instant.

This object may be recolored, and may be included in lot uploads

Recolors should link to this post so people can get the mesh

The mesh .zip has the mesh which is required for the other colors to work, plus the default Black body color and Classic Red interior color.

The Classic Colors .zip has 4 1930's style body color options, and two interior color options.

The Hot Rod .zip has 6 1950's style Hot Rod body colors, and 5 Hot Rod interior options.

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

Your car is so cool. I have difficult to choose which best color out of your car recolors.

Update: July 2009-I am back now to make invisible and tranparent recolors again in sims 2. You can pm me if you want your objects to be invisible and transparent from now.
