We had a bit of a wander in Bay City since the Hot Bay City Nights event opened at midnight last Friday. There are some great exhibits of cars to be seen, including one or two surprises. All the models on display at the vintage automobile show are for sale, some with special pricing available only at the show.
Many of the creators started building their automobiles before sculpts came to SL, then gradually updated their vehicles. We saw a wide range of styles, quality, and land impact numbers. For example, take the two cars pictured below, made by the same creator. The one on the left has a land impact of 27; the one on the right, 197.
Many of the cars are constructed from sculpts and prims, others with mesh and sculpts, some fully sculpted. All were lovingly built with careful attention to detail.
The creativeness of the builders is apparent in each vehicle on display – one or two with a rather droll sense of humour, even a bit of nostalgia.
Visitors are enthusiastically welcomed by greeters and invited to dance, enjoy the music, mix and mingle. Most everyone is friendly. We noticed quite a few newcomers arriving during our visit; they appeared to enjoy the Bay City sims.
After a while, we went further afield and found interesting little places round the city, from the community centre to the pumping station, to the brewery, and others. Be sure to look at our Flickr set of our little tour of Bay City, and consider dropping in to see the show and just generally meet people and have fun. If you haven’t visited, even if you’re short on time, the vintage automobile show is mere steps from the landing point. If you’re a car lover, it’s definitely worth a visit.
