This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
Ok, this is my first attempt to doing a recolor. Adding decals was the hard part. All decals are drawn by myself (My favorite is the smile)
I figured since "Lightning McQueen" was based on a Ford Mustang GT, that this would be the perfect recolor. The only problem was I couldn't add any numbers (Namely the "95" decal) so if anyone has any ideas please let me know.
Remember you will need to download the Mesh from Numenor for this to work properly.
If you have the original Maxis Mustang installed, it will end up being renamed to "Lightning McQueen". This may also change the name of other Mustang recolors, but I'm not sure.
I also changed the price to 19,995 to reflect a "Disney" object....expensive as usual......


I am currently working on Version 2 of this car. It has ALL decals (But no eyes, cause I can't figure out how to do them, even though they appear on the model, but not in Sims 2) and is done on the 2005 Mustang on it's own spot in the objects. It will not conflict anymore either. The only problem is, it stays silver in the view, but is red with decals in biggy I guess. So look for it!

This is good, but why is everyone so crazy about the Maxis one? Tre Zillah's is 10x better!
