Hey,

I'm currently in Las Venturas, and I haven't really found a very suitable car.

I want a car that handles well, looks well, and is just fun to drive. Something I can use to just casually drive around.

of course I have all my speed demon cars already (Turismo and Infernus are my main ones), Lowriders (I have a Blade from Low lo co), etc.

But im not looking for a blazing fast car anymore. Just something to drive around. What's your picks/favorites?

Savana-Ghetto times...Load this car up with homies and just cruise.

Bullet-Drive around in style and show the city your the new playa in town.

Cheetah-A car that's been around since GTA3 and gives you a rich and classy kinda feel.

Remington-Hook it up and your the baddest looking soul in all of San Andreas.

Moonbeam-Grove that sh*t out and it's a cruising mobile.

PCJ600-For when you feel like gliding through traffic.

I like the Windsor. It's a nice looking convertable, but the handling on it is complete sh*t.

I also like to cruise around in bicycles. They can go fairly fast, they are indestructable, and if you tap enough you can climb just about any hill.

I like the bicycles, too; you can hop fences with them as well with a good bunny-hop skill level. The mountain bike is best though biggrin.gif

lol I was just driving the Windsor around. yeah the handling is crap, it swerves everywhere. Plus it looks a bit feminish tounge.gif

Bikes are pretty cool (the mountain bike), but my fingers get tired from tapping so much tounge.gif so not really a good crusing transportation.

Well I have that, and a sabre in my garage currently... I've got the bulletproof one you can get from robbing the gas station and killing Catalina and towing the car back to a garage. The van is slow... but I like it for cruisin around with no place to go... maybe you could put NOS in it? lol

I always found the Sentinel pretty damn good. Take it to Transfenders and get a spoiler, maybe even some off-road wheels, turn it all black. Looks cool, and has good speed and handling, IMO.
The Bullet is nice and responsive, and as the name implies, it's particularly speedy.
Motorbikes are my fave really, nothing beats zipping down a freeway on a bike, feeling the wind in your hair...
I don't really like the NRG-500, especially not after failing several times on that blasted 'Little Loop' race in LS. It's TOO powerful, I think. Good for cruising on freeways, not for little streets and sharp corners. And the front wheel keeps going up and sending me out of control dozingoff.gif
The FCR-900 or BF-400 are my favourite bikes.

I drive around on bikes most of the time. I love them all.

But if i do drive a car it's usually the bullet. I like it because it has got good acceleration, a awesome top speed and it handles pretty good too.

I'm fond of the Yosemite's handling + speed ratio, it's pretty easy to handle. But you can't mod the car, not even a little, which is a shame.

What's the "Tornado" ? I haven't seen this car yet, where can I find one? smile.gif

I like my 1970 Dodge Super Bee that I replaced the Clover with. My second favorite would be the Phoenix.

Every now and then you can find them in the parking lot at the stadium by the low rider shop.

The new MTA is supposed to support mods for San Andreas because of the platform it is being built on. Unless I misunderstood their web site.

I reckon the windsor's pretty cool. Black with Hydro's and "twist" wheels. Oversteers nicely and sounds alright.

As a nimble, quick car to negotiate streets in cities etc. can't go past the Sultan. Seating capacity for four people as well as awesome handling and good AWD grip. Copes well with handbrake turns too.

For a bit of cruisin I take my black with "Virtual" wheels Super GT and if I feel like a bit of sideways action I go get an Elegy.

I think it'd be cool if the next GTA had an Evo of some sort and if the Jester had a better sound and was RWD like the REAL Supra sad.gif

If you have the PC version, you can make the Jester be RWD by a simple one character change in the handling file.
