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.
Boxy sporty goodness. Now THIS is a complete starter car if you ever need one.



So, if you hated that busted Sloppy Jalopy exhaust note, it's gone. And it fits 4 passengers!

Yes, another Base Game remesh. A sloppy jalopy retex with script borrowed from Wornado Triage. CAStable 3 channels. Same as the Sloppy Jalopy. Don't mind me. I love the base game cars. And i think overrealistic cars breaks the lore. I like my cars simlish.

It will give you a new car smell buff, lol. So, let's just pretend fuel leaks, burning rubber and smoky brake pads are your thing!

Not much else to add. Started as a sporty version of the Sloppy, ended up being a whole new car. The extended wheelbase was a pain to figure, but BloomBase's - TSRW - Vehicles, How? tutorial came to the rescue (https://modthesims.info/showthread.php?t=461919)

It's all there, you just need to read it and reread until it starts to make sense. Trial, error, success!

So, this is the last of my two really, really desired cars for the game ever since i first started playing it long ago. A third may be a 4 door sedan version of the Sloppy Jalopy. We'll see. If the creation bugs start iching again, i'll give it a shot. For now, enjoy!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

You could’ve told me Maxis patched this car in last night and I wouldn’t question it. This is really well done! I’m going to get a lot of mileage out of both of your cars [and yes, the pun is intended ;) ]

Another great car, thanks. Maybe for a third project, you can make a boxier version of the Yomoshoto Evasion and make it 4-door.
