1970 Plymouth Cuda

1970 Plymouth Cuda
Yet another conversion... I'll quote from "BigBen's School of Hard Knocks" a website where I get much of my MCO data for these conversions: "First off, the Cuda weighs in at 3500 pounds. This seems kind of heavy until you drive the car... the car is difficult to start turning, and once you do get it moving, it's difficult to get it to stop turning." I tried to represent that in the carp.txt, although it can only be represented so much because the physics of NFS4 are so poor. This is my best conversion thus far. It has Plymouth factory colors - and I've also included the names of the colors for reference. Enjoy!

nice, so far every conversion from MCO looks better on HS than it does on MCO, or maybe my vid card just sucks :P and lol, BigBen aint kidding, on MCO these things are a tree-magnet

This car was already uploaded earlier this week, but I couldn't add it to latest Additions until now. Sorry for the wait.

I like this AAR paintscheme and the original factory colours & names (you know, Vitamin C orange, Moulin Rouge, Plum Crazy, etc.)

AAR, did that mean American Auto Racing or something like that?

AAR was taken from Dan Gurney's All-American Racers, were he raced 'Cudas in he Sports Car Club of America Trans-Am racing series. But whereas Ford and Chevy built special models (Boss 302 and Z28) meant to mimic the race cars, Plymouth built a street rod. Along with the similar Challenger T/A, the AAR 'Cuda sported a unique 340 cid V8 with 3x2 carbs that was under-rated at 290 bhp.

The AAR 'Cuda also had special shocks and recambered rear springs which raised the rear end 1 3/4 inches over the regular 'Cuda which allowed clearance for exhaust pipes that exited in front of the rear wheelwell (after routing through the standard muffler beneath the trunk). It also permitted the use of larger tires in the rear, one of the first uses of wider rear tires on a production automobile.

Heh, that's a lot of info. :)
(I see now I was wrong on the Plum Crazy color, my mistake). And if you look closely, you can see the car does have the mentioned side exhaust...

MCO was going to have the challenger TA, but EA screwed it over before we had a chance to even see a screenshot of it, us MCO-ers were basicaly guinni(sp?)-pigs for NFSunderground. they took away from the more civil market and handed it to a few civil people and a herd of arrogant damn teenagers.... being 16 Im part of a dieing breed, a younger generation with better taste in cars :)
