    Hello! I really like how the 50s thunderbirds look, I think they're really pretty, and after extensive practice on vehicles, I decided to make one for Beam.ng! I have been working on this for a couple months, progress is slow due to school and mental health, but I will add progress updates when I can. The Thunderbird model is by me, but the frame, engine, suspension, and fuel tank are from the Burnside. Suggestions and feedback is appreciated!

    Thank you so much! Do you have any suggestions for parts or configs?
    It's also really cool that your grandpa owned one!

    as i was in Greek for Holiday, at the car rental there was a rusted 57 Thunderbird Convertible outside. I think it is still there and rusting. That red one as a beater config would be cool!

    This might be a bit complicated but i recomend a gasser config like in the pic pinned to this reply.
    I always wanted to own a gasser in real life cuz they are so cool

    That's a good idea! I'll add beater configs to the list!
    --- Post updated ---
    I really like the idea, but I'm not sure if I can do it because I dont want to be too ambitious or make false promises, so MAYBE after I finished all the other planned? I'm not sure, though I really appreciate the suggestion!

    You could do a little bit of badge ingeneering and make it a smith thunderbolt / moray from the Mafia series (look at these links for reference:https://mafiagame.fandom.com/wiki/Smith_Thunderbolt

    Thank you so much! Me too, I love 50s cars!
    As for the engine options, all the stock options, and superchargers
    --- Post updated ---
    It may take awhile to finish because of school and mental health issues, but I won't cancel.
    Kind of why I waited till now to make a forum!
    --- Post updated ---
    I want to say thank you to everyone for all the kind comments! It really makes me happy to see them!

    Might i ask which mafia 2 cars were you planning on making counterparts of? And do you think you could just add different badges that say " smith thunderbolt"
