This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.

This custom content if it is not clothing, may require a seperate download to work properly. This is available at Colour Enable Package (CEP) by Numenor.

Hey all! I have been incognito for a while - life has kept me quite busy. But I certainly haven't forgotten you! Today, I bring you 11 cool car posters recolored from the H&M poster - Color Me Sold! Banner by Zecutine.

I made these specifically for Smithers Auto Lot in Orchard Grove. I am using them to decorate the inside walls. The entire time I was making the screenshots and posters I kept thinking how much it reminded me of the Disney movie "Cars". So when I was making my preview shots to upload I decided to add their logo.

2008 Toyota Prius Hybrid from Fresh-Prince Creations. He graciously provided me permission to use a screen shot of this car in the poster. This car can be found on MTS2 here.

Cars from the game include the Smoogo Minima, Smord P328, Landwhale by Heaveola, Yomoshoto Evasion, and the Hunka 711 by Hwang Motors.

Cars by MaxiodMonkey from the Sims2 Exchange include the Ford Fusion, Focus, Edge, Escape Hybrid, and Mustang GT.

I hope these come in handy when your building your own car lot. Enjoy!

The rar file includes 11 separate packages - download all and install only what you want.

Advertisement text used was gathered from car makers websites online or made up by me.

Yay! They're here!

These look really awesome! You did a great job on these, I really do love the posters! And I love the movie cars.

Anyway, keep up the great work! And thanks for these fantastic posters and for asking me for permission, even though it wasn't necessary. :D

d4nny - they do and I am sorry. I got a new wide screen monitor and fraps doesn't take the screen shots very well in wide screen mode. It took a bit before I figured out that using window mode works much better for screen shots with my wide screen monitor. Gotta love the wide screen tho!

I am sorry...I wasn't trying to mislead anyone. Its just that the shots really made me think of the movie.
