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.
