    I agree, but should also replace the whole car with a '74 Dodge Monaco if we're going that route ;)

    Great mod. I love big american boats. Especially late 60s to 70s.

    Sure would, not to be off-topic, but I feel that a lot of these cars need their own j-beams that get added to the game. I have seen a lot of these mod cars that just don't bend like their real life counterparts!

    Am I the only one that thinks it catches on fire a little too easily? It seems that whenever the fuel tank ruptures it automatically catches on fire. Similar cars, the Moonhawk in particular, doesn't seem to catch on fire as easily as the LTD when the fuel tank is ruptured, other than that, I love the car, it is awesome to drive.

    THIS.

    The 75' LTD has unearthed the willingness to learn jbeam and start correcting things. No offense to Mr. Gabe but I have not been
    happy with the Moonhawk deformation since day one. Same goes for the Barstow and just about every non official land yacht mod
    ever presented. I'm not trashing anyone's hard work but I honestly think a special and slightly mad acuity will be needed to make
    large cars wreck properly. I'm willing to give it a shot if I can manage to learn jbeaming before 2040.

    We need a large car jbeam specialist and we need them NOW. Demo guys are the perfect consultants for this too.

    Well, I can help where I can, Since this is getting a little off topic from just the LTD's talking about, anyone is free to PM me, and I have a lot of referencing tools via other driver's knowlege, my dad's/family's and my own.

    I really like this mod, especially because you added police variants! However, the police variants use the light bar from the 90's Grand Marshall. Being that this car is from the 70's, I'd really like some 70's style light bars. like these:

    Nice job. I like the fact that it is compatible with the new license plates system. Also, it's nice to have a sedan from that era (I like american boats :rolleyes:).

    Thanks for this mod, it's a great improvement.

    One thing I noted, beside the fireball-happy tendencies ;) : the front end seems a bit low.
    Unless I'm mistaken, those cars, like a lot of 70s models, tended to have a slightly nose-up ride, especially if fitted with the small-blocks.
    As it is, the front bottoms out too easily (which makes for the always fun flying hubcaps. Speaking of which, the dog dish center caps should be a lot harder to unseat).

    Last but not least, the tires seem a bit to easy to explode when making even small jumps.

    Aside from those minor issues, it's definitely more fun now. :cool:
