Back in the fifties...
When gorgeous land yachts with glamorous fins and chrome roamed the streets...
One particular car was a show-stopper. An eye-turner. An absolute beauty.
The Gavril Bluebuck.
The "1957" bodytypes have the exaggerated, flashy fins that were the craze from around 1957 to 1959.
Top trim models featuring the 423CUI have a bumper mounted spare tyre which - in my opinion - is very period-correct and beautiful.
The front end is the same throughout 1957~1961, with an aggressive fascia and hood. Chrome strips on the hood are available.
In 1960, Gavril gave it a minor facelift - most prominently around the fins, which are much more sleek and refined. Taillamps are no longer on the tips of the fins, and it is overall closer to the 1962 model.
Apart from body changes, this mod also adds:
-Cushy seats on which you can put items
-Two engines, the 265 CUI "Templeton" and 500CUI "Dunhill".
The former is very mileage-friendly and quiet; the latter is a flame-throwing 370HP block of muscle.
-Some custom configurations. Let me present to you :
The 500 "Sadie" Limited Edition
The 4600HP drag car
The WideFap show car
Due to a multitude of reasons, this config currently does not work unless you already had the WF mod. Feel free to remove springs for a similar experience.
Also, to fully enjoy this mod, download the addon pack here which cannot be on the repo for various reasons.
Note that this car is VERY EARLY WIP. It works, it breaks, but not anywhere near completion. Even as I am writing this, a geometry + configuration update is in development.
Problems that I am aware of :
- Taillights can be rather spiky in rear-end collisions. This will be improved.
- The drag configuration's engine heat behaves weirdly. This is due to the OP radiator. Don't worry.
- Taillights do not look realistic - this is my fault, will be fixed ASAP.
- Body panels clip in places. This is undergoing development.
- "Will you make a Series 62 next"
- "Will you make a Lan Evo next"
-"Are you gonna make me a Chevelle then
- "What are you going to make then?"
