But unfortunately unable to continue the topic due to gaming complications.
On with the topic!
Vehicles will be in alphabetical order (with pictures in progress) & information on where it spawns in traffic, in missions and parked and the rarity value that goes with it;
--- 'In traffic' means if NPC's can be found driving it in normal traffic. This includes vehicles summoned by the player (ambulances, firetrucks, police, army)
--- Parked means that no one is driving it when found
--- Set/fixed parking means that only this vehicle will be able to spawn at this parking (for example the greenwood in front of Sweet's house is a set parking)
--- A mission includes all actions that are required to achieve 100% completion (import/export included) and girlfriends
Common: Vehicle spawns anywhere both in traffic and parked and is driven by almost all types of population
Fairly common: Vehicle spawns in fewer areas and is not often found parked
Uncommon: Vehicle spawns in only a few select areas and a few parkings
Rare: Vehicle rarely or never spawns in traffic and can only be gotten consistently trough a mission and/or a (few) set parking spot(s)
Very rare: Vehicle can only be gotten trough a mission OR in ONE set parking spot (if both, then it will be rare)
Nonexistent: Vehicle can only be spawned by a cheat device/software
I hope to also add which vehicles can help in spawning other specific vehicles and try to explain generally the spawn system used in San Andreas
I'll edit as I go, feel free to add your own info, you'll get credited for it and marked this color underneath. Or even parking points! You will be noted for your info & help.
NOTE: I've only done the ones noted "Courtesy by Benjimino234" All of the white ones were fro the original topic by WAR potatoes
No data means that I'm don't know whether it appears or not because I haven't checked.

The closest the rating is to 1, the easier it is to obtain this vehicle.
Nonexistent vehicle: Automatically 0 rating
All other vehicles: Minimum rating of 1
There can be multiple ratings, in which case the lowest one will be used.
Must start a mission in the LS segment: +0.5
Must complete a mission in the LS segment: +1 (Do not add the 0.5 of the previous point, same goes for the other ones)
Must unlock San Fierro: +2
Must start a mission in the SF segment: +0.5
Must complete a mission in the San Fierro segment: +1
Must unlock Las Venturas: +2 (Add the +2 from unlocking SF)
Must start a mission in the LV segment: +0.5
Must complete a mission in the LV segment: +1
Must start a mission in the Return to LS segment: +1
Must complete a mission in the Return to LS segment: +1.5
The LS, SF, LV and Return to LS segments are calculated from the moment you have this mission open to you. So for example to get the Dune, the rating would be 6 (minimum of 1 + unlock SF + unlock LV + complete LV mission) because you get access to the stadium once LV is unlocked (yes I'm aware you can complete it when it's still locked off, but I don't take that into account here)
Player must summon it: +2
Has a set parking (in a mission or not): -1 (only if rating >= 2, otherwise no change)
Has an irregular parking (in a mission or not): +1
Is in a locked area (Naval Base, Area 69) OR player must summon with wanted level: +3
Very rare: x2

All 'Difficulty to Obtain' ratings are done by me, unless marked in blue with a name notification.
