An old ad I did for the car
(Ancient version of the mod here! Not representative of the current mod status, look and features)
The mod doesn't replace any original files, so you can just put the .zip on your mods folder and start driving! (Select one of the two presets under the Hirochi Sunburst)
Special thanks to syntol and Günther for their help.
