    Are the wheels meant to look kinda tiny on it?

    no, I believe the car is disproportionately large compared to vanilla cars. the car needs to be scaled down a bit

    If I can, I will attempt to resize the car to remedy this issue in the next unofficial update.

    It's actually a bit more complex than just a size factor: the real car is about 2" longer and 1.5" wider than the previous gen.

    If we take Sgt Fido's mod as a reference, the newer Caprice is about 1ft longer but about the same width...

    I really like your edits so far, good luck with this!

    I was about to make the same comparison you've made. Also, thank you for the support. If you or anyone would like to help me edit this mod, that would be awesome. I have very little knowledge of modding BeamNG.drive and currently, I need help making whitewall tyres optional.

    The next unofficial update for the 1991 Caprice has been released!

    This update includes not one, not two, but THREE new additions!

    These additions are:
    Optional whitewall tyres on all wheels that come with this mod!

    Less confusing names for each wheel

    So it's actually too short rather than too big? Weird, I didn't know it was so huge irl

    No...it's the other way around: too long but the other dimensions are about right.

    The reason "The Whale" looks so much bigger than the previous generation is the "bubble" design, otherwise it's pretty much the same platform as before.

    I think the Caprice is bigger than the Ford Crown Victoria.

    The next unofficial update for the 1991 Caprice has been released!

    This update includes not one, not two, three, four, but FIVE new enhancements/tweaks/additions!

    Want thicker stripes on your whitewall tyres? Sure thing! Credit to Zepherius for editing the whitewall tyre textures.





    The default base model preset that comes with the mod now has the base hubcaps and badging that says Caprice instead of Caprice Classic. This new badging is also optional via the vehicle customisation menu.


    All-new built-in presets and updated thumbnails for pre-existing ones! Plus, detailed descriptions of them, too!

    The car no longer does a peel out that can very easily make you lose control when you accelerate from a complete stop at full throttle.

    New Engine: 5.0 Litre V8, which comes standard on the base model and the 9C6 Taxi.

    Make sure you perform a DEEP CACHE CLEANING when you update the mod! You may need to follow these steps in this post too: http://www.beamng.com/threads/1991-...-update-07-24-2021.57794/page-11#post-1353114

    Yeah, the mod has been dead for a LONG time.

    I have no plans on making a V6 for the car. Plus, it doesn't fit the "traditional" style of the Caprice in my eyes.

    If I find out a way to get the hydraulic functions from the Bluebuck, then yes. Until then, no.

    Maybe fix the suspension? the rear end seems a little lifted compares to the front end.

    Is this lowered enough?

    I'll release the new unofficial update in hopefully a few hours. I need to take a break from being online for the day.
