old need for speed cars

custom cars for nfs 3 & 4

Way back when I was a teenager, I discovered a 3d model editor that allowed me to make my own custom cars for the Need for Speed videogame series. My internet handle was Buck Murdoc back then.

Unfortunately over the years, I've had many hard drive crashes so I was only able to find a few of the NFS models I made (20 years ago).

The 1966 Batmobile. I actually sent pictures of this to George Barris and got a reply saying George got a kick out of seeing the pics.

FYI George Barris was THE custom car guy back in the day.

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit came out in 1998. It allowed the player to play as a police car for the first time. So I designated the Batmobile as a pursuit vehicle. The light would flash when in pursuit.

Here's my 1967 Cadillac DeVille. That's me driving with my Hawaiian shirt on. I was really into Hawaiian shirts back then.

I don't know what inspired me to make a Gremlin, but there's me driving again.
