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 my first car!yay!lol. I want to thank VampCat and Jms for their help. Thanks you guys. This is a mercury Marquis. Everything works fine, all animations work and doors except there is no steering wheel. Sorry. Because of the mesh, it really only looks nicer in dark colors. Tell me what you think All comments welcome. My next car I will be uploading soon is a Jeep Cherokee. You may recolor just link to the mesh.
Car Type: Sedan Muscle Car
Car Era: 1970s

I had to post again, and thank you for the baby blue recolor! I was so surprised - you're a sweetheart! I couldn't resist featuring it in a little story (although you may want to skip down to the bottom, if you don't like vampires!).

~I no longer play Sims, so I'm not taking requests, sorry~

This is sweet, it reminds me of my first car, a 1978 Delta 88, yet another land-yacht of the era. Man I miss that car. It was a vague shade of brown/ beige, and cruised at 120mph like butter. Because ofthat car, I almost didn't graduate high school. lol Sorry! Balbbering and reminiscing. Very nice work.

Wow, that's great for a first!... My retired Sims will love the retro-styling, the fuel economy, the radio-cassette and phuh who needs a steering wheel anyway - one less thing to worry about < Dwnlds >

Thanks for sharing by the way...

To all, of the very talented MTS-2 creative types - my sincere thanks for taking the time to create/upload/share...

Fine job, mate! Good to see some classic Detroit iron for a change. Enough of the rice-burners.

Sweet. It reminds me of my '88 Crown Victoria. If you wouldn't mind, could you make one for me? It's like this one, only it was made by the founder of Mercury, Ford and it really isn't much differn't. If you don't know what they look like, you can google it. Mine was grey and probably the only one in the world without the vinyl hardtop and the little metal sripe just above the gas cap and starting the vinyl on the vinyl hardtop.

Look everyone. A signature. <3

Probably as close as I'll ever get to my happy little Buick, so I'll take it! Thank you so much! My sims don't want fancy cars... :P
