I was wondering, is there any site that shows comparison shots between Vice City and what Miami looked like in the 80s?

There are no sites that shows comparison shots, but this is close to it:

Downtown Miami in March, 1986 (Pic from michaelprophet.com):

That's strange. The pic showed when I first posted it.

Edit: I've just posted a different pic of Downtown Miami from 1986 so you guys can see it.

The whole VC looks close to Miami but the downtown don't look much like it, but the beach area, little havana and starfish/star island give that Miami feeling.
In real life the docks should be higher on an island and downtown bellow the docks but hey it's VC not Miami.
And the pic of Miami that TheKimberBenton posted looks the same as in DRIV3R.

Airport

Put a map of Miami Beach next to part of the map where the Golf course is and you should see it easily sigh.gif
