This is a new mesh recolour, and means that you will need to download the particular mesh itself in order for this to show up in your game. See the Meshes Needed section or read the text for more information.
When I'm making a matching set for something, I like to match something in every category if possible. Cars are no exception. I wanted to use a Maxis one, but I didn't much want to use the ones actually in the basic catalogue, and I remembered Fresh Prince had made the sportscar that picks you up for carpooling as one you could buy. (As well as a couple of others, of course.) I picked the one called Sports Car Low (miscellaneous > vehicles > §5,000), because honestly, I think that one looks nicer than the higher class one, once it had the rust cleaned away.

I'd done a whole set of solids (no wiggly stripe) but when I got in the game, it needed MASSIVE cleaning up, so I decided to add the stripe for kicks, and it looks sportier that way, so it stays unless requested otherwise. It's a lot more subtle on Lemon and Cran-Raspberry than I wanted, but I'm following a pattern and I didn't want to mess with them.

You will need Fresh Prince's mesh for this, found where linked in the Meshes Needed tab most of the way (⁷/₈ or so) down the page. Unfortunately, there's no easy way to link it.

Thanks.

And for those searching on Fresh Prince's site the name of the car is 'Maxis Sports Car low' to make it easier to identify it. Mouse over the image and it gives the names of all the cars.

Thanks so much for the lovely recolors. I've had this car in my game for years, but never used it much because of the rusty Maxis paint job.
