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.
