    Update, the texture broke, IDK what to do.. Screenshot793.png




    Have you ever seen the coolest most fantastic chick magnet car ever? The 1992 ford tempo? well here you go.


    I'm not sure when this car is going to be done, but it'll be worth the wait

    A while back I made some quick concepts for a radically customized ford tempo, although my designs were being layed onto the car slowly, my muscle car puritan brothers had other plans. So sadly, the car was sold, beat to heck, and scrapped.
    But the car's legacy lives on in my heart, and has inspired me to take the design into three dimensions digitally Screenshot (387).png picture was photoshopped as an alternate concept Screenshot (386).png IMG_1537.JPG Picture irl was my baby. The super bee is my brothers

    Finally, a true crappy car in BeamNG. (I'm talking about the car itself not your modding skills) :)

    My apologies, I wasn't trying to insult your car rather using a common term of endearment towards
    an era that generally had some fairly miserable looking vehicle design. It is directed at an era and not your
    car specifically. When I say 'please jbeam carefully' that just means the satisfaction of mangling the car will
    be that much more satisfying. It has nothing to do with your pride and joy personally.

    Well, I'd take a Tempo over this. :p

    This car could give me a headache.

    OT: I look forward to this one.

    Am I the only person who liked the boxier cars, such as the aztec?

    Its cool to see more crappy (not the mod itself but the car) cars in BeamNG.

    Is it based off of the 89' Pessima by any chance?

    ...I actually would kind of want a pre-smog pinto squire, I'd gladly take it over a tempo... especially a 1992 with the laws here :p ...in fact it's kind of depressing seeing so many people with semi-classic cars like yours that I'd never be able to have... but that said maintenance costs would probably be pretty high and little part availability so I guess its not that bad... forces me not to make as stupid of decisions at least... or possibly even more stupid ones if I decided to get an excursion with the 7 liter V10...

    I love it when people decide to make REGULAR cars. Not a super-car that almost NO ONE has, but a car that all of us who hit a hard time now and then - or had a child of driving age and went out and found the cheapest thing we could buy (because they will DESTROY it) - well all had one, in some way shape or form. It's more fun for myself to drive a regular car, because it's an accomplishment to get it to go pretty fast (e.g. hit 100mph)... and it's a challenge to handle (though not so much compared to a 200mph super-car on a keyboard - Bolide, I'm looking at you!).
    REGULAR cars are great for photo-shoots, traffic crashes, etc.
    The Ford Tempo was made from around 86 or so (could be off a year or two), to at-least 94~95 model years. It shared the platform with the Mercury Topaz. Only the trim levels (front bumper, grilled, head and tail lamps, dashboard) and standard equipment differed between the two models. To the best of my knowledge, no Lincoln shared this platform at any point. It was your standard runabout fare, fairly cheap to own, didn't use a lot of gas, though mileage wasn't stellar compared to imports. It was mainly driven by the over-40 crowd and as the car aged, frequently seen in school parking lots at your local high school as it depreciated quicker than other cars of it's class. What it came down to, was that many old(er) folks had them because, well you could buy a ship-shape Tempo/Topaz or a less-reliable in-need-of-work better-class of car... so they bought the former! It's no chick magnet by far, but if women are attracted to the car and not the person, I'd pass them up quicker than that car any day.
    So yes, not quite the size of the Taurus/Sable full-size sedan, but larger than the Escort/Tracer (which was derived from the Mazda 323 platform later shared with the Proteje).
    With the 6-cylinder or a manual they were actually peppy enough, but nothing to write home about. The ride was confident but not reassuringly so. Do you buy them - well yes maybe, for someone ELSE that needs a car :)
