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.

Hi everyone.. This time I bring you one of the cars that I love so much

You know The Mystery Machine, there are many models that represent it and it's difficult to choose one
I chose the Volkswagen Bus to create The Mystery Machine for The Sims 3...

*UPDATE* [15/12/2011]
The new 1.29 patch puts the car accessories in the sim's inventory after driving
I've fixed the accessories, now all works fine
Please Redownload the new file and delete or overwrite the old one.
Sorry about that, this patches really make me crazy...

I have made 4 presets using the stencils.

Preset 1 - Mystery Machine in english
Preset 2 - Mystery Machine in Simlish Style
Preset 3 - Peace and Love 70's style
Preset 4 - Only with the VW logo to customize as you like

The accessories are :
- Decorative Tire
- Accessory for Roof whith 21 slots
