    Thanks again for all the positive feedback. I hope those cars won't disappoint you when released :)
    I tried to put details to make forget a bit the base car is the Moonhawk and make the car credible as an Oldsmobile. Frame is the same with some added details, removed others, it's longer of course, and except for a few details and modified textures, the running gear is the same. The Moonhawk was obviously 70' GM inspired, so i didn't saw any reason to remodel those. And to be honest, i could have pleasure to do details on some custom version or race car running gear, but about those tractor looking ones, i have not a big passion.
    The purpose to create all of that was the car chases and stunts.

    For those who like details, and i think about Raticon particularly, i had fun making the Stanadyne DB2 injection pump on the Diesel engine and the crappy fish can original fuel filter.
    The 8 outputs of the pump and the injection lines going to injectors, are matching the real fuel intake order of those engines.
    I just see in those screenshots i made a mistake recently while updating the engines textures, because some fuel lines are now black .

    Also those engines were made more reliable by Goodwrench, so i'll have to remove this sticker if i want to do a weak original one.

    I'm guessing it would look like this.

    Good car for demo derby :D!
    Shouldn't be that hard to do, but still some work. Anyway the Station Wagon has yet something like 45 mn of work on it, so don't expect it so soon for the regular version at least.

    The best would be something with a extended wheelbase, would remind me of the DiRT Showdown hearse ;)

    Maybe a long wheelbase sedan variant in general? I am hazy about the line of cars and the versions of what Oldsmobile made, but I would like to see a long wheelbase version of the Regency? It could be, a very luxurious vehicle like a ZiL Limousine?

    A never produced Limo of it is already planned indeed, here are some tries i did a long time ago already.
    We all have the same ideas about those cars :D, and it's not hard to understand because this mod was born an adaptation of the Moonhawk Sedan mod, which contains a limo. It worked pretty well already.
    A limo is nice but a drag limo is even better :p
    For V2.0 i think.

    You would never see a Olds Limo, That would be Cadillac's domain.

    For those who are unfamiliar, or just weren't born yet, GM's hierarchy was as follows


    Cadillac-Top of the line for GM

    Buick-mid to high range
    Oldsmobile-mid to low range

    Chevrolet -Bottom, entry level

    Yep i agree, that's why i wrote never produced limo. Someone rich can order something like that today, and those cars are made also for tuning them.
    That's the fun part of modding cars.

    Hey Fido, any plans for a craptastic 307? It only seems right since that is what the overwhelming majority of them ended up with here.

    HA ! i need to update the message with engines ! Good you asked for that.
    I will add a 6 cylinder (need to model it) and why not this 307 indeed. TylerTJ sent me photos of his engine.
    I didn't looked closely, but if it looks like the 350 one, then it will be easy to add !
