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.

This is a drivable vehicle - The Nightlife expansion pack or Numenor's Drivable Cars Without NightLife Mod is required!

The DPXL55Buick.zip file has the mesh, the red/white body color, and the red/white interior color included.

The DPXL55BuickColors.zip includes the six two/tone color options and the two solid colors as shown, plus matching interior color options.


The model was modified from the Maxis sportscar using the .Ms3dASCII export/import of SimPE.

=======================================================

NOTE! This section is just for credit, you do NOT need to download anything from this site to use the car in your game!

The basic body shell was modified from a free mesh found on ArchiDOM - http://www.archidom.net/

=======================================================

The main object was updated Dec 2008 to be compatable with Numenor's game mod. I also added the Buick portholes to the fenders and improved the look of the convertible top cover. If you have the older version, download the new mesh and over-write the old one. The color files are unchanged.
