Phantom It resembles a Peterbilt 359 EXHD.

The name is probably a reference to the story song about a big rig truck driv-
er--"Phantom 309" (Tommy Faile). A hitchhiker is given a ride by the truck
driver then learns at a diner the truck driver died earlier swerving to miss a
school bus. The song was covered by Red Sovine in 1967 and others including,
with altered lyrics, Tom Waits on the 1975 live album "Nighthawks at the Diner.".

Did you just Necro-resurrected this thread?


Well it's pinned so I don't see the issue.

About the post: did not know that. Thanks :)

I know this is probably gonna sound stupid, but could Gordon Sargeant's name be a reference to Gordon Ramsay and Mark Sargeant (the former sous chef and then head chef at one of Ramsay's restaurants in London)? I was just watching the documentary "Boiling Point" with both of them in it and they both worked together back then when the documentary was being made, and it sorta just clicked in my mind.

Don't know if DLC counts but I found 2 working test sites that you can visit in TBoGT. e1test.blogsnobs.org - it's a copy of the Big Dog blogsnobs page from IV and www.testsite.com, a black page.

Every longitudinal street in Algonquin named after an element, gem or mineral—starting from south to north—from Amethyst Street to Xenotime Street is in alphabetical order.


Lorimar is probably an alteration of the word larimar, which is a rare blue variety of the silicate mineral pectolite.

You can look at the map here.

I hope this can help. I think this is a clear connection between GTA CW and GT IV. On the Exotic Export Missions you have to go on one ocasion to Huang´s first safehouse. There, the guy that drives the car you have to steal is a Huang look-a-like. It can appear with different clothes, the car can also change. I made a video of it on November:

I think I found a new easter egg which doesn't seem to have been mentioned on the GTA Wikia or IMDB. Feel free to add it if you have an account there.


I think the mission Trespass could be a reference to the 1992 movie of the same name. They take place in an abandoned building although the story is different. See the trailer below.
