Hello all,

I'm new to the forums and joined to get some feedback on what to do and not do on my first mod. I've already been saved the trouble of doing a completely new model and have the one I would like to convert. I also have watched the tutorials and find it a good reference.

I'm converting a 1957 Plymouth Belvedere Sport Sedan. Got the model from
http://animium.com/2013/08/1957-plymouth-belvedere-3d-model/

Will keep everyone posted.

Hey, thank you for the replies.

Christine in the movie was a 1958 Plymouth Belvedere with a lot of options. Essentially the same sheetmetal when it comes down to it, minus trim, badges, color options, engines, etc.

Quick question, though.
Does it matter what 3DS Max I use? I just downloaded the 30 day trial from their site, but the one in the videos I see is Max 5. I have the latest trial version.

And thank you for the links, I would like to convert the Savoy 2dr if this goes as planned.

the thing is that the convert plugin only work on 3dmax 5/5.1,
you can do the car in what ever program but for car import to the game you will need 3dmax 5/5.1
Is abalible on gom

I just finished installing 3DS Max 5, but I don't know where to find a working plugin?
All the links on the site are dead and one in the description didn't work.

Christine was NOT a Belvedere. She was a 1957 Plymouth Fury 4 door in the book. However there was no 4 door Fury in '57 or '58, so for the movie they used 2 Belvederes and a Savoy and disguised them by using parts from a Fury. This was one of my most favorite movies of all time.

hsrzse;

Christine in the movie was a 1958 Plymouth Belevdere sport coupe in factory toreador red/iceberg white. She had a 350 cubic inch 2x4bbl V8, with the optional stone shields, custom interior, the sport tone inserts, radio, whitewalls, full wheel covers, etc..

In the book she was a 1958 Fury; the Fury was the flagship of Plymouth's line during the mid to late fifties, as was the 300 to Chrysler and the Adventurer to DeSoto. The Fury came only in Buckskin Beige in 1958 and the coupe body style. It tells that LeBay had her painted at the dealership, which some time later it also states the color was autumn red. This was a common occurrence at that time, especially since he couldn't have ordered a Fury in red. She had whitewalls, a radio, and it says LeBay was a pretty cheap man, which makes me doubt the fact he would have bothered to have the tan interior recovered.

No possible way she was a Fury in the movie, she bears none of the Fury specific options (That is, unless you're talking about the 150 M.P.H. speedo.) Yes, she was CALLED a Fury 4dr in the book, but the Fury was didn't come in that body until 1959, when Plymouth dropped the Plaza line and replaced the old Fury with the new Sport Fury. There are a lot of misconceptions about these cars, hope this helps!

I understand what you are saying, however in the DVD commentary they explicitly reveal that the 3 movie cars were indeed 2 belvederes and a savoy disguised as a fury by using body panels from a fury.
