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.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.

New: Thanks to Echo's tutorials, your Sims can now gain mechanical skill points by tinkering with the car. This isn't a "cheat" object, skill will be gained in the usual way.

Polys = 5199 (434 polys per tile)

This is not a drivable vehicle, no expansion pack(s) are required.

The car requires a flat 12 tile area for placement.

It will be in your catalog in the Electronics/Audio section.

The car has a working radio, with all the usual radio options including Work Out, so your Sims can also gain Body skill points - One or more Sims can Work Out or Dance to the radio at the same time another Sim is tinkering with the car.

I have disabled autonomous turn on/off, meaning that you can use this as a strictly decorative object if you prefer. Only your own controllable Sims will be able to turn the radio on and off, and only by your command.

Included in the download is the Mesh plus 6 exterior and 4 interior color options.

This object may be recolored, and may be included in lot uploads

Recolors should link to this post so people can get the mesh

The mesh file is NOT to be altered or used as a base for other meshes!

The basic body shell was modified from a free mesh found on 3d Cafe

A drivable version of this car is available here: 39 Viking Convertible

Also available is a separate auto engine with a mechanical skill option:
Skill Motor

You must have the expansion or stuff packs listed below installed to use this custom content. Please see the post text for any exceptions.
