I was thinking - since it's set in 1977 - that I would have a music station dedicated to classic rock (wouldn't be classic, then, of course), punk rock (since it started in 1975/6 and hit it's popularity in 77) and some other genres. If people would like to make any suggestions for songs/genres/stations then I'd be more then welcome to listen to them!

Sadly, there was no hip hop around that time so I can't put any music suggestions. But maybe some dub would be good.

Ofcourse you can, the 1970's had some of the best music. Early punk scene, various classic rock bands, soul, motown, glam rock.

For Rock, maybe these would be good,

KISS - God of Thunder
Van Halen - Ain't talking 'bout love
Montrose - Space Station #5
AC/DC - Dirty Deeds done dirt cheap
Nazareth - Beggars Day
Kansas - Carry on my wayward son
Boston - More than a feeling
Rainbow - Stargazer

That Kansas song always reminds me of South Park, haha. I might start work on the radio stations soon - the only thing I know about the 70s in terms of music, though, is punk and disco. tounge.gif

I've come up with a few ideas for vehicles:

For a long time, I thought Boston were the group behind Carry on my wayward son, but I later learned it was Kansas. Lesson learned, don't listen to torrent sites. Some of these might fit well on various stations,

10CC - Rubber Bullets
Stealers Wheel - Stuck in the middle (Reservoir Dogs reference maybe)
ELO - Turn to stone
Rush - Xanadu (it would have to be shortened though)
Pink Floyd - Money
Status Quo - Rockin' all over the world
Thin Lizzy - The boys are back in town
Bruce Springsteen - Born to run
Iggy Pop - Neighbourhood Threat
The Stooges - Search and Destroy

Thing is, I'm not interested or fan of any of these music and considering Jacky himself is a punk fan he should know a lot already about the genre.

I can't help but notice that whenever I change the little icon to the left of my original post - somebody else always changes it to the exact same one. whatsthat.gif

Ha Ha I always wanted a new shape Beetle in IV called "Bug".

Here are some car ideas:

Coquette: Corvette Stingray
-click-

Cheetah: Ferrari 308
-click-

Banshee: AC Cobra
-click-

Admiral: Mercedes SEL 6.9 (S Class in IV was called Schafter though)
-click-

Bullet: Ford GT40
-click-

Sentinel: BMW 745 (May be called Oracle as the 7 Series in IV was called, but Sentinel is more traditionally applied to the 7 in GTA)
-click-

Buffalo: Pontiac TransAm
-click-

Can you please stop posting pictures of cars? None of these existed in 1977 and as such will not be appearing in Grand Theft Auto Las Venturas. Also, please don't post massive, page-stretching picture, as it's irritating.

Not my fault you can't read. Now can you please edit your post with the huge picture because it's stretching the page?

For a later alternative to the Windsor, a Jaguar XJS? I've been in love with this car ever since I was young. They came about in 1975.

I know they say a picture paints a thousand words - well this one doesn't. I have no idea what make, model or even the general name of that car is there is no way I can include it. Please include a picture and name when suggesting cars - it makes my job so much easier.

@Tyla: Those are spot on. I'm going to start compiling a list of cars soon and getting them ready for the front page. I saw what a great job you did with the Liberty City '71 thread and I'd like it if you could offer similar sort of skill for Las Venturas.

I'd much prefer links - actually. Though a simple make and model along with in-game counterpart will do me just fine.

'74 Plymouth Road Runner(and Daisy Dukes arse) - A possible Jester or Tampa?

'77 Dodge Monaco - Could be a predeccesor of the Greenwood, it was also commonly used as a Taxi and Squad Car

'77 Chevrolet Impala - Would fit as a Merit maybe?

'76 Cadillac Seville - Possibly a Premier

'72 Chevrolet Monte Carlo - Spitting image of a Buccaneer

'74 Dodge B-200 Van - A Pony, or Rumpo?

'73 GMC Jimmy - A Rancher

'76 Ford Gran Torino Country Squire - A Perenail, or Regina?

'77 Oldsmobile Cutlass - Could be the downsized Sabre because of the fuel crisis, if the Sabre and Sabre Turbo are seperate?

'77 Ford Mustang II - Not really a full sized Mustang, more of a ladies version. Possibly a Uranus?

'58 Plymouth Belvedere - An Ocenic, or something similar. It's got that old school Vegas/Venturas look about it

'56 Cadillac Series 62 - Maybe a Tornado, or Hermes?

'73 Mercedes-Benz SL - Feltzer

'75 Volvo 244 - I think it would be suited as a Willard, perhaps

'77 Triumph TR7 - A sporty Convertable, maybe a Flash?

Those are perfect Tyla! I cannot thank you enough. Any vehicles you think need adding that do not currently have an equivalent in the GTA world (like my Goblin and Bug ideas)?

Maybe Johnny and his friends, or one of the other big mafia families could drive these?

It's big, it's ugly, it was desribed as a "luxury Aston Martin" and the most technically advanced luxury car in 1976. It's an Aston Martin Lagonda. It would suit the name of "Padrino", Italian for Godfather(I think). Or this Ferrari 400 GTS could take the Padrino name.
