Thanks for the headsup Robert, a car I have personally been wanting for a long time, I wondered who would make it first, either Schurby or Nationale7!

Okay, this is truly a happy day for those of us who are fans of the 1959 Chevrolet Impala, Schurby has come through for all of us, and made one that is truly affordable, for those who primarily play in Poser, this car is perfect, however, for those of us who primarily play in DAZ Studio, the car loads perfectly, however, the texture files, or pose/mat files only work somewhat, so have a few sets of shaders would be a good bet, as is usual.

The car loads as a shell, you have to apply all the extra parts, the bumpers, the engine, firewall, radiator, all parts of the interior, including the floor and the dash, and of course, the detailed bottom of the car, there is also a light or lite version, and there are interior parts as well as undercarriage parts for that version as well, the car can be made into a convertable or a hardtop.

The hardtop isn’t perfect, what I mean is the top doesn’t have the perfect curve toward the rear of the car like the real thing does, however, its better than a lot of cars out there that cost a lot more, the car has Schurby’s usuall high quality, thank you Schurby for making this particular car, as I had been wanting a 59 Impala since I started doing 3d stuff.

Ouch, that does suck, are you simply unemployed? Or is there some other reason, other than this Obamanomics situation?

Due to several things I was a Master Auto tech until company politics (read that as they wanted me to lie to my customers) and a couple of injuries put me out of work add to that the loss of about a hundred thousand dollars worth of tools the injuries becoming worse I simply become unemployable Have to use a cane to get around now but can’t get disability and they moved the early retirement age from in my case 59 to 62 so no income

But I’ll get by always have always will

Hey Robert, sorry to hear that, but I believe in resiliance, we all have a certain amount of it, so your attitude that “You WILL get by”, is exactly the right attitude to have.

The 59 Impala is a super nice car. It was always one of my favs for chrome, along with a 61. This one looks real nice, but would look better if it had some treads on the tires, they are bald!


Speaking of Impalas….I got this freebie from sharecg, I think, or rendo, anyway, it is a 1967 and in Bryce format. So I opened it in Bryce and then resaved as an .obj file. Imported into DS3 and applied a few shaders. It looks mid poly, but loads really fast and looks pretty good. Nice MAT zones, No morphs though. Still ok for a freebie.

I have the 67 somewhere, its a decent mesh alright, I may have downloaded it several times, it started as a 3DS file, but I think I may have it in lwo as well, and of course, I converted it in Poseray to an obj.

Yes it is, and once I figured out how to apply the textures that won’t import into Studio, it makes all the difference!
