I liked reading your opinions on the new DLC cars, but you got me at that Javelin restomod being epic. Thing's an atrocity. They ruined a really nice period correct 70's street machine spec Javelin to make it. If it started out as a rusty hulk and they gradually made it into a restomod, I wouldn't have cared, alas, that wasn't the case.

I do like the real car quite a lot, I like it because it is something different than the usual Mustangs, Camaros, and Chevelles that you see resto modded. For that same reason though, an original Javelin is rare and I understand why you and many other classic car fans don't like that they took an un-common car and modified it.

 

That's why I said in my review, that I wish that Rockstar would've given us a stock Javelin and had the RB based version as an optional upgrade. I like the custom car, but I would prefer a stock un-modded Javelin myself.

Did you also notice that the Deathbike (a modified Gargoyle) is a somewhat accurate copy of Daryl Dixon's bike from seasons 7 and 8? I say somewhat because the actual Daryl Dixon bike is a modified 1992 Honda CB750 Nighthawk, which is an inline 4, while the Deathbike has a Vtwin.

I did see that there was a bike in the update. I thought it was supposed to be one of the bikes from The Road Warrior. But I haven't seen TWD since season 2 so I'll take your word for it. :)

@ThundersmackerI hate to agree with you that the Itali GTO design really leaves a lot of room for improvement, but it is the only modern Ferrari grand tourer made by R* to date (aside from Besita GTS) and I wish someone would bring it to Liberty City.

To be honest, the car isn't that bad. The only issue is the bug eye headlights and the shopping cart wheels. If those were fixed it would be a good car. I'll see how I feel about it after I get some other stuff done.

@ThundersmackerI don't think the rear window texture should look like this on the 190Z...

Um, yes it should. That's how the defroster looks on an original 240Z.

Oh, my bad. Never know they made it like that in real life?

You can always use that Openformats wheel swap trick to get the steel wheels from the civilian version.

can this be used alongside the patriot? or do we have to replace it in order for the lights to function?

You can replace another police vehicle besides the Patriot. As far as adding a new police car, I've never tried it.

Well it's a new year and that means another year of cool GTA mods. A good way to start that, is with a conversion of the badass Vapid Imperator.

As you can probably tell there are some changes I've made so far. I changed the generic blower you can put on the car and made a replica of the iconic Weiand supercharger. I also made the headlight covers more accurate to the real Pursuit Special. I may add the MFP logo on the side and add the roof spoiler that the GTA car is missing, but I'm still deciding on those. The wheels are temporary, as it'll have the wheels from the original GTA V model in the final release.

 

Before you ask, a stock version based on the Falcon XB is a possibility.

Some awesome mods from you and GCT, so of course my PC died. And not a gfx card this time. I think it's dead-dead this time.

That sucks big time, I know how you feel. I hope you can get it fixed or replaced.
