Hello,
I am a newbie to computer graphics and OpenGL.
I am currently working on a project that requires modeling a race car and race track. Nothing fancy.

I need to model the race car. I need vertex (x, y, z) coordinates of all the points that make the car. And after that I need to apply texture.

I was wondering if there is an easy to use application to design a car and then export the points? Or is there a website where I can get a car model?

Thank you,
Tom

There are lots of websites with models to download for a few bucks, but you will also find many free models. Just google for:
"3d models" free
You could start with:

Download the .3ds versions (not the .max) and use some library to load 3ds models, like this one:
