VPN's Garage was a large community of 3D modelers for The Sims 2, that offered unique vintage simlish cars, with simlish brands.
VPN's Garage was founded in the June 2009 by a 3D modeler named VPN. The main goal of the community was to create not cars with real life brands, but cars with simlish brands, such as Smoogo, Yomoshoto, Landwhale, and the other ones of the game.
The site offered free downloadable cars, only requiring that users register prior to downloading. The site offers other miscellaneous downloads other than cars, such as stories that are set in their fictional world, called "Alterra", lots, wallpapers, recolors and simlish electronic objects.
As of July 2015, The Garage and all its content had been deleted and its domain put on sale.
