Thanks ongias! I just added 3 more cars. They are historically accurate, and you won't find them anywhere else. The next year, these guys were running completely different cars. Frank Warren was in a Roadrunner, Cecil Gordon was in the #24, and Sonny Hutchins was in a Mercury. I haven't seen anyone else paint a Ford Fairlane for GN69ST. I hope you like them. I have even cooler stuff coming.

Dave, keep in mind this is a 13 year old game, with a mod that was made many years after the game was no longer available. I'm surprised its lasted this long.

So I would personally feel proud if I had 21 downloads for 1 car in a weeks time. Especially for an older mod that probably doesn't get much use anymore. And 6 cars that weren't 'main stream' from the era.

You work looks great... Just remember there's only a hand full of us left that still mess with this sim.

Yeah, you're right about that Robert. It just threw me off when I saw that some of them had 80 views, but only 3-5 downloads. Thanks for the compliment!

I just posted 3 more cars. Two of Leeroy Yarborough's cars, a Mercury Cyclone, and a Torino Talladega. Also Don Tarr's Chevelle.

I feel like these cars I've been doing are a great add-on for people's 1969 carset. That's what I intended anyway. The 1970 carset got almost all of the attention. I want to give everyone some specifically 1969 cars, because many people don't know which cars belong in their set.

If any of you want me to do a certain 1969 car, then let me know.

Nice work again Dave!

As for the 80 views, you should also remember that includes page views of the home page that shows that image. The software used for downloads is actually a gallery add-on for the forum, so it counts how many times an image is shown. So in this case, the render of each of the last 4 cars are loaded every time someone visits the home page, which runs your view count up.

I can send you a complete 1969 carset right now. It wouldn't have many of the backrunners, one-off schemes, or cars still running from '67, or '68 though.

Just get the 1970 Pearson, Langley, Isaac, Jabe Thomas, Trivette, Arnold, Yarbrough, Yarborogh, Allison, Baker, Donnie Allison, and a few others, and you have a good start on a 1969 set.

I'll fill in some of the other cars. ;)
