We're updating? What???
Yeah sure, why not? I noticed some new people recently so why not try to get this back on track?

Old-->Simply put, we'll be all about cars here. Since this is still new there won't be much first post content yet, but it's getting there!

In GTA IV the Stallion looks like the GTA SA sabre, confused me quite a long time when I was first playing the game.

But the Sabre has dual lights and looks way sportier. The Stallion has the trademark hood and rear lights.

The Sabre was my favorite car in Vice City. Back then it was the Sabre Turbo, and in San Andreas it became a civilian car and also the infamous green Sabre that was used in the drive by of Carl's mom.
I couldn't resist parking a nice red Sabre Turbo near my bohan safehouse. IMO the optional paintjob with a stripe isn't that great...

I don't think most people here have played GTA1, london or 2. But that probably isn't such a big deal because the cars looked so undetailed and odd, discussions about them mostly involve arguing WHAT the vehicle is actually supposed to look like if it was better detailed.

Also they switched some names around. In GTA3, the pony is a van with an extended roof and more modern front, and the rumpo is lower and looks like an older model. Then in vice city there were two almost identical vans but their names were switched around.

Also the perennial and manana, possibly the ugliest and least popular vehicles in the series. In GTA4 the perennial is a modern car and the manana looks like a pimp mobile (while the esperanto that was a pimpmobile before is now roman's crappy taxi).

I'm also surprised the Kuruma and Blista from GTA3 didn't come back in GTA4.
The kuruma was basically the only mundane sedan in GTA3. Though the minivan looks almost identical to the blista at least, again it's not a very inspired name.

Aw man I loved the Esperanto. One of my favorite cars in GTA III... Now it's so... Unimpressive. The Manana may look sort of nice but it's still slow and unimproved.
I do admit that the Perrenial is now drivable.

Another name change, the Romero in GTA2 was an average civillian car, then reappeared in VC as a hearse. It just remained a hearse after that.

I find it a real shame that there isn't a cheetah, mesa or a stinger in GTA IV. Those were three of my favorite cars in VC and SA.

Big dissapointment. But we'll be getting multiple DLCs so they might come back. What I really want is the Miara from GTA2. Modelled after a Lamborghini Muira.

The IV cars seem more obvious and enthusiastic to give away their inspiration...Past GTAs kept you guessing...Sometimes.

Finally, a topic about cars. icon14.gif I like the present IV's stallion. The high suspension is very fun to drive with. Also, the Sabre has always been a favorite. Keep on posting.

I loved the Sentinel from the previous GTA's alot, especially the XS from VC.....the new version is alright, but not the best.

I love the sentinel. Perfect average car (but sportier) for acting a little less crazy. I liked to take little cruises in these...
I love old classic cars, so the III sentinel was one of my favorites. It's an old BMW, the best kind...

The VC Sentinel was sportier and more badass.

The SA Sentinel lost som style, but was still a nice car to drive around.

The IV Sentinel is one of the cars I've saved. I even have two. A red XS with black rims, and a rare golden one.

I absolutely love the Caddilac like 4 door, which name I forgot. The one with V10 on the back. It just drives fantastic. I like the sultan RS for his sounds and his speed, but I think it's to fragile.

personaly im a tuner man, but no hard feeling toward the saber, its a great car, fast, durable and nice looks. But i would take the GT over it. but i would have to say that my fav. car is the sultan RS. Handles like a dream, very fast etc. But in SA I used the saber alot for offroad as well. but in 4 theres notin but suburbs so i just cruse around in a. And i miss the car mod. in SA aswell. cool.gif
