Before Archive.Org screwed up and went BETA, You could get most anything, I was able to get files from Pursuit Inc. and a simular site known as NFS Virginia, If you had had the direct site of RK's way back then you could have downloaded the files using Archive.Org, Now though this site just plain sucks, It's only archiving articles and pics, None of the download links are archived no more since their stupid BETA took over the site. I think I downloaded most of RK's stuff using Archive.Org and had it stored on a external hard drive that crashed some time back, Once I get this fixed and the data off of it again I'll go though it and see what I got.

I see, thanks for going through the trouble. :)

In the meantime, AJ sent me the few cars he has, and there were some in his collection that weren't available anymore. I'll see if I can upload them.

Keep a eye on N.F.S. Police H.Q. as I will some day post my police conversion of the Datsun 240Z (I made it based off the Matchbox 280Z) I think 240 and 280 is the same car as I can't tell the diffrenece in the 2. AJ helped with this car.

  Suzuki Cappocino

  Nissan Fairlady Z Version R

  Subaru Impreza WRX Type-R STi Version VI

  Seat Leon Cupra R

  Toyota Vitz (Yaris) RS

Thanks a lot for taking the time to upload these, Zpectre. I hope you're okay with the fact that I didn't add them to the latest additions list on the frontpage - if possible, I like to keep that for newly made releases. That's why I linked them all here, so people can see them.

No problem, Remko! I didn't expect you guys to find out it was me, although I did announce my intentions here so it was obvious. :D

Those five are the cars AJ sent me. Other than those, I only have the cars you've posted earlier. The rest are all available at NFSCars and here. It maybe wouldn't hurt to upload all of them, though.

One thing is certain: none of the websites in the classic NFS resources thread has any content the more active places have.

Re-conversion of the Re-volt cars to HS is an alternative. The meshes are intact. The problem is that, when I import stuff into ZModeler, the normals of the tires seem to be screwed up. It MIGHT not be too difficult to solve, but it's still annoying. And then, because Re-volt uses bitmaps as textures, you have to redo the alpha channel from scratch, not to mention carefully detach the interior from the body.

Even then, the Re-volt pack only has 20 or so cars, we need many more to complete the collection. With many of the cars being unique and unlikely to ever be replicated in another racing game ever again, I think it's worth chasing after those lost cars.

Hey Andrew, thanks for coming here. I want, well... All of them. :D

If you don't want to/have the time to upload them here, I can do it myself. The few I've uploaded were pretty much intact and I didn't take any credit for it, as Remko is just adding them to the backlog instead of having them on the front page since they're not new releases. I kinda want to upload them to NFSAddons since download links become deprecated after a while.

Of course, there are plenty in your list that NFSAddons and NFSCars already have, but most of what you have is unique.

No problem! I am glad I can help and hope this closes the gap on missing cars or maybe even completing the lost cars.  I always liked his work since he made his cars look like they belonged in the game and those vid walls that matched perfectly.  I will zip the whole file and upload to one of those websites like zippyshare or what ever and PM it to you.

PS I did start uploading some of them to nfscars a long time ago like the Mercury Cougar has my name on it as uploader but I stopped because at the time I couldn't find out if I was duplicating cars or what was needed and couldn't get a list.  But either way glad I can help!

No problem! I believe you did that more than a decade ago, and at that time it was time consuming to do it because internet speeds were much lower and to my knowledge fiber wasn't well implemented yet. So it's understandable.

There were people there at NFSCars who claimed they had all of the cars but they left long ago.
