Wannabees collect supercars.

 

True car collectors collect vintage cars like this one. Ever seen Jay Leno's garage?

lets face it, you are not going to drive this in mission or race,

so car like this is usually use in freeroam, drive around with matching clothes, make poor guy jelly, get killed, blow up, u name it.

 

i brought mine last night, happen to parked next to my JB700 in my garage, and i am happy with it

Not true at all.  It's my go-to mission vehicle.  Heavy and quick enough, and very welcoming to other players.

 

You're talking like it's a cruising car.  It's far from.

Can someone let me know how does the Roosevelt perform in races ? In its category ?

Especially if you have tested in on a 1000m drag race that would help - or message me on PSN so we can have a race test.

I currently own the JB700 but I'm hesitant to switch to the Roosevelt. Tested it in SP, it's correct, but can't really tell against other cars.

It's one of the slowest cars in races. Stock or fully modded.

Slower than Stinger/GT, Monroe, Z-type, JB-700.

Gets a horrible laptime.

Not true, in fact last night I used it in a mission and with 2 man peoples and a woman person hanging off the outside.

So it can definitely support any combination, permutation, or arrangement thereof, of man peoples and woman persons.

Use it in missions.

People who drive 2-seaters in missions with more than 2 people are pricks.

Oh yeah, thanks a lot. I have to wait for my mechanic to magically spawn my car. Thanks a lot, prick. Oh no, don't wait. Go freaking ahead.

I'd say I'm more of a 4-seater guy than a sedan guy. I wouldn't bother with the Romero, meaning.

The old gangster look is pretty cool but I was tired of it right away. Like buying a car and keeping it stock they almost all look the same with minor variances. Not saying I am a pink car dollar sign guy but I think it makes a decent hot rod looking vehicle. I just hate that u have to leave those wire wheels on the side. Wish they would change or go away. Also,more mods would make it better Imo.

Oh yea. It is totally worth it.

I would say yes. It's not as good as the Z-Type, but it's a unique car that can be pretty fun to drive. Everyone seems to always paint it a drab brown or black color though.

 

Here is mine:

What do you mean by worth it? The Granger is free and can hold 8 people and is faster and does the exact same thing. Does that answer your question? Not to mention if you try to race it then the Z type and Monroe will destroy it. It's also easy to get shot out of due to its large windows and large appearance that can be spotted a mile away. I don't think I've ever been shot out of any other car in a single day than the Roosevelt. I should just move my garage to the impound since its pretty much there 90 percent of the time I'm online. Other than that it's pure nostalgic.

Starting March 1st, the Roosevelt may be considered a "rare" car since it will be off the market. I would think about it...

Go inside one of your character's garages and it'll prompt you to press either left or right on the d-pad... can't remember which one... to pick a special vehicle. Roosevelt will be on that list.

In my opinion it is. It can be fun to make them poor peasants jealous. It looks cool. It has a unique horn. It has style. Driving is okay.

But I wouldn't go to battle or hunt a bounty with it.

The Car can Carry 8 people 4 inside and 4 on the running boards ...

 

I use it in constantly in missions because it can carry everyone, the one thing i have noticed in chase missions and you are having to deal with all those drunk NPC drivers determined to hit you, they will bounce off the car like a ball hitting a wall, ...so far its the best car i have used when dealing with those drunk drivers

 

I also like the car for Gang attacks, its body style allows for better cover, so now i normally drive right into the center of the circle and use the car for cover

 

i have used it to collect a couple of bountys, if the person having the bounty is determined to run they might have an advantage because the top speed is slower on the Roosevelt

but if they want to play cat and mouse with ya and like driving at you at high speed, just steer into there lane and hit them head on.....if they are in a stole car the wreck will damn near destory them. giving you plenty of time of kill them..........if they love stickys and get you...well they just lost 9500 to the insurance

 

Can someone let me know how does the Roosevelt perform in races ? In its category ?

Especially if you have tested in on a 1000m drag race that would help - or message me on PSN so we can have a race test.

I currently own the JB700 but I'm hesitant to switch to the Roosevelt. Tested it in SP, it's correct, but can't really tell against other cars.

It is slower than Most of the Cars in its class, I think it is faster than the Tornado but that about the only one

 

Against the Z type on open road it will get eaten alive, ...I have both the Z-type and Roosevelt bot fully upgraded, and the Z-type is a lot faster, if Catch Up is turned off, if the host leaves Catch up on and you are a good driver you will stay close, use slip streaming with a friend and you can win.......with catch up turned off  winning is not gonna happen unless your in a race with retards

Surprisingly a lot of people... so many people favor the thought of a "gangsta" over a gangster or mobster.

 

I got invited to a gangster party once. It was awkward when I showed up dressed like a mobster while everyone else had flat billed hats and jeans hanging halfway off of their asses. I just concluded that I was the only cool person there.
