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.
Here is it, finally. This model was NOT built by me, it was a free model from www.3dcafe.com, I just adapted it for the TS2 and added new wheels of my own creation. I wish I knew the name of the modeler so I could give credit where credit is due.
As I was working on this, the only color I wanted was basic black, but my wife (if you remember the pink SuperSportsCar) wanted a pearl chrome PINK. So I made both of those and then, since I am an air race fan, I decided to mimic on of my favorite planes. A highly modified P-51 Mustang called "Voodoo 3", (pictured below).
Both the "PINK" and the "VOODOO" recolor packages are included in the one zip file. This in NOT hacked in any way, purly decorative.

ATTENTION: To any one that has downloaded and used the 1974 Trans Am I posted:
1) I did not build that model either, it was another freebie, I think it was origanally built for NFS5, original builder unknown, sorry....

2) I just went back over that package and learned the the GUID is the same as the Venus Sculpture, so If you are using the car then the Venus Sculpture will be lost, I have already fixed the file, just haven't posted it. I recomend that you delete it, so your original MAXIS sculpture will return. I am sorry for my stupidity.

I hope I placed this in the correct area, if not would someone pls let me know. And as always, any and all comments are welcome.

thanks
AceHole

:wow: This really rocks. I have a question for you though. Could you possibly do a 1955 Chevy 2 Door Bel-Air Hardtop. It would mean so much to me. If not that's cool. I just thought I might ask. Either way this kicks major butt. thank you :cdance:

I will look for one , I am only an average model builder, there are much more talented peeps out there that share there work with others also. So If I can find a freely redistributable model of that car, I will adapt it to the game, and do more research so I can credit the builder. ...any color preference???

PS, thanks for the complement

Terrific!
Now all I need is a friend's Lincoln Mercury and I could have what we called his "Pink Linc with the crunch in the frunch" (cos it had a dent in the grill). It was about the same vintage, and he owned it in 1969.
Or I can pretend this is it. Though it wasn't a convertible.

Either shiny black or blue & silver. I think you are one of the more talented artists there is. Don't be so critical of your work. It seriously rocks. thank you again in advance. If it gets to time consuming or just plain out difficult and a big hassle, then please don't worry about it, but if you can do it that would be sooooo amazing.

Um don't know how to say this, but, the base package "IS", A VERY SHINY black. Any way I like the idea of a blue one!!! I will post the new recolor packages as soon as I am done thank you!

Default thank you
Thank you!!!!! What I meant by shiny black was black with a cherry metallic flake in it or something to that effect, but I wasn't wanting to be too picky. I meant xtra glossy, metallic shiny. if that makes any more sense. But nonetheless. you are awesome.
