    I don't know if a car like this would have it in that timeline and also I don't know if that's asked or not, are you thinking about a hardtop or something similar?

    This is an MG PA Airline Coupe. Not exactly an MG T-Series, but it would still have some historical roots to have a hardtop version.

    Added some stuff today:
    Apart from fixing some textures, I added:
    Hood latch handles:
    screenshot_00348.png
    Trim+rubber on various parts AND separated the front fender from the middle fender/sideskirt
    screenshot_00351.png
    And, last but not least, I added a frame with the Ute version, made by Moss.
    It will have 2 configs(before you inpatient people ask questions I already thought about), one with and one without the tailgate. Unlike the real one, both will have custom fenders, a closed(no visible wood) body, a supercharger and a 4.5 diff
    screenshot_00353.png
    Something broke the UV's of the engine today and it doesn't look like it wants to listen to me anymore(stays the same no matter what) so I might have to redo the carb+exhaust manifold before I start on the textures for that and a supercharger.

    I don't think there is any other vehicle, in any other game, that I have been so excited for. Hot damn. Can't wait, keep up the astounding work!

    I would just love a V16 Quad Turbo Bugatti engine with a Saturn V main launcher attached to the back.
    Jokes aside, it'd be nice to have more HP and a faster engine.

    I believe he said earlier that he would be looking into faster engines/engine parts. I believe it has a supercharger, tho idk for sure.

    Very true, however, in the '30s, there were races in which people would take their fastest cars from the '20s and pre-depression times and race. I'm talking about once rich men in Bugatti Type 13s doing 55 Mp/h around a dirt road. That evolved into something like Nascar. Here's a poster from those times:
    Car companies used to do "throwback" models to fit for these races. One popular one was the Ford Business coupe, from '41:
    Such the same from other companies. Like Rolls Royce and of course, Bentley. Here's a Duesenburg from '34 that made a nice racing model:
    So, it is kinda "old looking." But that's pretty much just the point.
    --- Post updated ---
    Thanks for the correction. But, there are V-piston variants. Specifically by Bugatti, from my knowledge. But, you'd need to make it look like a Silver Arrow, because of how long the hood would be to hold the components of a V16, so it's impractical. Overall, thanks for correcting me lol.

    Eh, I thought I said this already but:
    The Fintray has a 1.25L engine, with some tuning options, a supercharger is one of them.
    It will also have all of the Bolide-V8's and maybe an engine from the Hatch.
    It will also have 2 gearboxes (4 speed and 6-speed race gearbox) and some diffs like the original one, a 4.5 one, a LSD and a racing diff.

    On another note, I will present the mod in it's current state to the MG T-Type Owners Club tomorrow, or at least, some of them. Just to ask some questions and to see how they like it. in february, I will present the hopefully finished mod to the whole club again(if they don't kick me out tomorrow).

    I also had contact with Moss Motors and I will include a Moss livery for the pickup, which is fairly nice in my opinion :). So thank you people at Moss!

    I might have done other stuff since my last update but I forgot what, probably not much since I have been working ;)

    Actually, the parts aren't really V-parts unless you want to be picky. I believe that they're from the VR6 engines, which are extremely close to inline engines. They have such a narrow V-angle that it almost counts as two inline-3s side-by-side at a slight angle.
