GTA TLaD Special Vehicle Guide

 
 
Special Vehicle Properties Legend:
 
EC (UC) = Exclusive Color or Unique Color - The Special Vehicle has a Color that can't be duplicated with Pay and Spray or found in Traffic.
 
Lustered = Lustered -  The Special Vehicle has another Color overlapping its Base Color and is only best seen in the Daylight with a lot of Sunshine and the term is only used on Special Vehicles which have randomly selected Lusters every time you start the Mission, not all Lusters are Special.
 
Unique = Unique - The Special Vehicle is Unique when it can only be obtained from a Story Mission or Side Mission, the vehicle itself is Special as it's not possible to find it Parked or in Traffic.


Parking Spots:

Every GTA TLaD Save can have 16 (or 14 on PC and early Xbox 360 Versions) Vehicles and the Vehicles can be saved in 8 (7) Parking Spots which all have a Maximum Capacity of 2. You can use IV's and (on some Versions) TBoGT's Parking Spaces. If you're playing on PC and on early Digital Xbox 360 Versions, Luis' Apartment won't be available for you to store Vehicles.

Posted 05 July 2016 - 01:06 PM Edited by SpriteFan274, 2 weeks ago.

1.0. EC Magenta Diabolus (1 of 2)
Mission: Clean and Serene (Fail)
How to Obtain: Welcome to Liberty City, again! Start the first Mission in the Game by making a New Game, ...Clean and Serene, and as soon as you take control of Johnny and are instructed to go back to the Lost MC Clubhouse with the rest of the Gang following behind, instead, lead the Lost Gang to one of the other seven Parking Spots in the Game where you can store Vehicles. When you arrive at one of the Parking Spots, get Jason to drive into the designated area where the Vehicles are saved and then shoot him dead off his EC Magenta Diabolus. The Mission will fail and restart. Before completing the Mission after killing Jason, go to the Parking Spot and confirm that the EC Magenta Diabolus is still in the Parking Spot. If it is, then continue on with the Mission as normal and pass it. If it's not there, make a New Game and try again. This is Jason's Bike in TLaD and it's has a Special Bright Magenta Body Color with a nice Red/Purple Luster on it.

1.1. EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus (1 of 5)
Mission: Clean and Serene (Pass)
How to Obtain: Start the Mission Clean and Serene by making a New Game and literally just pass the Mission like normal. Just pass it, and once the Mission is passed, you will see this EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus sitting in the Parking Spot at the Lost MC Clubhouse. However, Johnny's Hexer and Billy's Revenant will also be parked at the Parking Spot. You must remove these other Bikes before you save the Game or it's very possible that the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus will vanish after reloading the Game since only two Vehicles can be parking at each Parking Space in the Game. Three or more will make one or more of the Vehicles disappear when you reload the Game, so make absolutely sure that the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus is the only one left in the parking Spot before saving the Game. This EC Diabolus is Deep Crimson in Color and has some Yellow on the Frame, it's also Brian's Bike in TLaD. If you're doing a Starter Save, I suggest getting this one. If not, get the one from It's War or any other Chance where you can obtain this EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus.

1.2. EC Magenta Diabolus (2 of 2)
Mission: Angels in America (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is your second and last Chance to get a EC Magenta Diabolus in TLaD, both require a Mission Failure. I suggest getting this one from Angels in America. Start the Mission Angels in America and as soon as you take control of Johnny, use his Sawn Off Shotgun to shoot and kill Jason off his EC Magenta Diabolus. The Mission will fail since Jason was killed and the EC Magenta Diabolus will be left there on the Ground. Just take it to a Parking Spot and store it. This is obviously Jason's Bike in TLaD and has a Special Bright Magenta Body Color with a Red/Purple Luster on it.

1.3. EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus (2 of 5)
Mission: It's War (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is Brian's Diabolus and it's EC and has a Deep Crimson Color, with some Yellow on the Frame. There's five chances you can get it in TLaD, I suggest getting it from It's War or from Clean and Serene for a Starter Save. To get the EC Crimson Diabolus from It's War, start the Mission and follow the Crew to the two Angels of Death Hideouts/Locations and kill them as instructed. After killing all the Angels of Death, you'll get a Message saying to return to the Hexer. However, don't do that, instead run towards Brian's EC Crimson Diabolus and get onto it. Once Johnny is sitting on Brian's EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus, drive it next to where your Hexer is and a Cutscene will play and the Mission will be passed shortly after. Johnny will not be sitting on the EC Diabolus after the Cutscene, but the EC Crimson Diabolus will be left where you drove it next to the Hexer before the Cutscene. At this point, get onto the Diabolus and take it back to a Parking Spot and store it.

1.4. EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus (3 of 5)
Mission: Action/Reaction (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the third Chance in TLaD to get this EC Crimson Diabolus, it's Brian's Bike and has a Deep Crimson Body Color on it, along with some Yellow on the Frame, just like every other EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus. This one requires a Mission Failure, I suggest getting the other ones from It's War or Clean and Serene, as there you can get the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus with Pass to avoid an unnecessary Mission Failure. There are reports that the EC Diabolus from this Mission doesn't always work depending on which Platform or Version you are play on. Sometimes after the Mission is failed, you will be left where the Mission is failed, but other times, you are teleported back to the Lost MC Clubhouse thus making this EC Diabolus in this Mission unobtainable. But like already said, it's much better to get the one from either Clean and Serene or It's War. Your choice. To get this one however, start the Mission Action/Reaction and as soon as you take control of Johnny, just shoot and kill Brian off the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus and take it back to a Safehouse Parking Spot to store it. Still pretty easy to obtain.

1.5. EC Black Gang Burrito (1 of 2)
Mission: Action/Reaction (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is more of a Rare Vehicle than a Unique Vehicle, since the Gang Burrito, even with the same EC Black, can be found during Gang Wars. If you don't want to search it in Gang Wars, you can easily get it from this Mission. Start the Mission Action/Reaction and simply pass it just with some minor Rules, so follow Billy and race the Lost MC to the AoD Clubhouse, then shoot the Grenade Launcher on the Window as instructed. You will see three Unique/EC Gang Burritos in the Area which will all be Locked and Unjackable. In the Shootout Part a normal non-EC Gang Burrito will arrive, which won't be locked. Shoot the AoD Bikers and kill them all outside, when they're all dead, get in the normal Gang Burrito and drive it in front of the Unique/EC Black Gang Burrito right in front of the Angels of Death Clubhouse on the Road. After that, get in the Clubhouse with Billy and kill all the AoD's inside. After the Cutscene, get on your Hexer and drive away so the Mission gets passed, and then immediately go back to see the two Gang Burritos on the Road. Get in the normal Gang Burrito and use it to push the Unique/EC Black Gang Burrito to the nearest Safehouse Parking Spot, which will be Playboy X's Penthouse. Pushing it won't be hard and it's a short push anyways, so it won't be a huge problem. When it's pushed to the Safehouse Parking Spot and parked there, it'll be stored there.

1.6. Unique Yankee with Wooden Crate Back
Mission: Liberty City Choppers (Fail)
How to Obtain: This Yankee has a Unique Model to it and you won't find any other Yankee in TLaD which is like it. This Wooden Crate Back Model Yankee is a Unique Vehicle and a different Vehicle from the normal other Yankees, you can call it a different Unique Variation, which makes this Vehicle great for your Collection. It's actually called a Yankee2 in the Game Files. It's Black in Color and also has a Light Blue Stripe along the Side of the Cab, though the Colors are not EC for it. It also needs a Mission Failure to obtain it, though. To obtain this Unique Yankee with Wooden Crate Back, start the Mission Liberty City Choppers and drive your Hexer with Jim to the Location where you will find this Unique Yankee2. When you arrive, simple shoot and kill Jim to fail the Mission and then get into the Unique Yankee with Wooden Crate Back and drive it to a Parking Spot to store it.

1.7. Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims
Mission: Politics (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is the first out of two possible Lustered Black Schafters with EC Black Rims in TLaD, one is from Politics and the other can be found any time during Gang Wars. Special Lusters on this Lustered Black Schafter with EC Black Rims are Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red and Yellow (????). This Special Vehicle is randomly Lustered and the Luster will be randomized each time you start the Mission Politics. It's unknown to this date, but it's speculated that some Lusters from the Politics Schafter can't appear on the Gang Wars Schafter, thus making this Politics Lustered Schafter a truly Special Vehicle and not Rare, only if you choose a specific Luster. All Russian Schafters from Traffic have Black Poly Colored Rims and all Traffic Civilian Schafters have Very White Rims, but this one has Black Rims, which makes it Special, though the EC Black Rims can also be found in Gang Wars (? CONFIRMATION NEEDED). The Grills are not Special on it because it's a normal Schafter and the Grills are a Variation thing. To obtain it, start the Mission Politics and head to the Francis International Airport, when you arrive you will see three Lustered BlackSchafters with EC Black Rims parked with Agents inside of them to the left of the Maverick that is landing shortly on the Helipad. Simply shoot and kill the Target exiting the Maverick Helicopter and then jack one of the three Schafters after killing the Agents inside. Leave the Airport once you get into one of the Russian Schafters and lose your 4 Star Wanted Level to pass the Mission. After the Mission is passed, drive it back to a Parking Space and store it. This seems to be one of the few Special Vehicles in TLaD which have a Luster, which makes it rather nice to obtain for your Collection. ---- Needs rewriting

1.8. EC Sky Blue Rhapsody
Mission: Off Route (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 1.9. to know how to obtain the EC Sky Blue Rhapsody and the Unique Prison Bus while failing the Mission once. For this entry, this will be an explanation how to get the EC Sky Blue Rhapsody alone with passing the Mission. For serious Collectory this is a better idea since another Unique Prison Bus comes up in the final Mission at the end of the Game and can be obtained while passing the Mission. If you want your Mission Failed/Attempts Stats to a Minimum, this is the better option, however getting it in that Mission is much more time consuming. To get the EC Sky Blue Rhapsody with Pass, start the Mission Off Route and as soon as the Cutscene ends, across the Street you will find this EC Sky Blue Rhapsody just sitting there. Simply get in it and store it at a Parking Spot to store it, then continue on with the Mission like normal and pass it with taking the Prison Bus and driving it to the Location. Once the Mission is passed, go confirm that it's still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving.

1.9. Unique Prison Bus (1 of 2)
Mission: Off Route (Fail + Replay)
How to Obtain: This entry will be an explanation on how to get both the Unique Prison Bus and EC Sky Blue Rhapsody at the same time while failing the Mission only once. However, if you're a serious collector, you should wait to get the Unique Prison Bus in Get Lost together with the Unique/EC/Lustered Black Laundromat at the same time and pass the Mission. That way, you avoid having to fail Off Route to obtain this particular Unique Prison Bus and won't get an extra Mission Failure/Attempt in the Stats as well as a Replay Used in the Stats. If you want to get this one from this Mission, start the Mission Off Route. After the Cutscene you will notice the EC Sky Blue Rhapsody parked across the Street, go to it and take it back to any Parking Spot. Once you take the EC Rhapsody back to a Parking Spot, proceed to the Police Station where the Mission is instructing you to go. When you get there, do the usual and steal the Unique Prison Bus. Once you steal it, you will have a 3 Star Wanted Level, simple lose it. Once you've lost the Cops, the Game will instruct you to go drop off the Inmates to a Location in Actor Industrial Park, however, don't do this and drive the Prison Bus to a Parking Spot. Preferably one that doesn't already have a Vehicle parked there. Park the Unique Prison Bus in the Parking Spot and try and blow it up with an RPG but without it moving out of the Parking Spot. This can be rather luck based and may take a few tries, but just be patient. As soon as the Prison Bus explodes and you receive a Text Message on the Phone to retry the Mission, do so! This is crucial for this to work. The Text Message is the Mission Replay after you fail the Mission. If you don't retry the Mission immediately, then the Prison Bus will vanish every single time. Trying to obtain it without using a Replay of the Mission, but after about two or three seconds after the Mission has failed, it would disappear. Retrying the Mission immediately will teleport you away from the Parking Spot you blew the Unique Prison Bus up at, thus allowing it to be restored right away. At this point when you select to retry the Mission, you will be put directly in front of the Police Station and at the part again where you steal the Prison Bus. Go through the Mission like you normally would until you pass it and after passing the Mission, confirm both the EC Sky Blue Rhapsody is still in the Parking Spot where you parked it earlier. After that, confirm the Unique Prison Bus is restored and still at the Parking Spot you blew it up in. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving.

2.0. EC Black Diabolus
Mission: This Sh*t's Cursed (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is a rather weird Special Vehicle in TLaD. This is supposed to be Brian's Diabolus in Crimson Body Color and Yellow Frame, but in this first Part of the Mission, it has a unique Black Color. Start the Mission This Sh*t's Cursed and as soon as the Cutscene ends or is skipped and you take control of Johnny, simple shoot and kill Brian to fail the Mission. Take the EC Black Diabolus he was riding back to a Parking Spot and store it. Make note that after killing Brian, sometimes his EC Diabolus will land right next to the Yellow Marker to start the Mission again. Try not to start the Mission again before storing the EC Black Diabolus or it will vanish. Try to wait a bit and then kill Brian and not kill him right at the Lost MC Clubhouse at the Yellow Marker where the Mission would start again.

2.1. EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus (4 of 5)

Mission: This Sh*t's Cursed (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the fourth Chance in TLaD to get this EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus, it's Brian's Bike and has a Deep Crimson Body Color on it, along with some Yellow on the Frame, just like every other EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus. This one requires a Mission Failure, I suggest getting the other ones from It's War or Clean and Serene, as there you can get the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus with Pass to avoid an unnecessary Mission Failure. To get this one, start the Mission This Sh*t's Cursed and go through the Mission like normal by driving to Chinatown and killing all the Triads. Once all Triads are dead, you will be instructed to return to your Hexer, run to Brian's Location and simply shoot and kill him and the Mission will fail. At this time, get onto the EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus and drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it. Simple, but like already mentioned, it's better to get it from Missions where you don't need to fail the Mission to obtain it.

2.2. Unique Laundromat (1 of 2)
Mission: End of Chapter (Pass)
How to Obtain: This one is a bit of a useless Special Vehicle as you can get a Unique/Lustered Laundromat in the Final Mission with Pass, this one from End of Chapter is just Unique and is not Lustered. If you really want this Unique Laundromat, start the Mission End of Chapter and then drive to the Docks to meet Brian. After the Cutscene, a Shootout will take place and eventually Backup will arrive. The Vans that the Backup of the Brian's Biker Gang Members/Goons come in are the Unique Laundromats. Take out all the Goons assuring that you don't blow up all of the Laundromats in the process. After killing everyone, a Cutscene will take place while Brian and his Goons try and escape. If you didn't blow up all of the Laundromats, one or more will still be where you saw them before the Cutscene. Just get into the Laundromat and use it to drive where Brian and the Goons have gone and then kill all the Goons. Once you kill all the Biker Goons fleeing on Bikes, you will get the Message saying go to Jim. Instead of going back to Jim, however, drive the Unique Laundromat back to a Parking Spot to store it. After parking it, go back to Jim and another Cutscene will take place and the Mission will be passed and Johnny will be teleported back to the Clubhouse. Go confirm the Unique Laundromat is still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving. Make note that if you are driving a Laundromat yourself, or have recently driven one as your previously touched Vehicle, others may spawn on the Road despite this being a Unique Vehicle. It's still Unique as it's not possible to get it in any way possible after you beat the Game. Like already mentioned, I highly suggest getting the other second Laundromat from Get Lost with Pass instead of this one.

2.3. Diabolus with EC Light Brown Frame
Mission: Bad Standing (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Light Brown Body Colored Diabolus with a EC Light Brown Frame, the Body Color is not Special and can be found in Traffic, but the Light Brown Frame makes the Diabolus Special. The normal Traffic Light Brown Diabolus has a Dark Red Color on the Frame. To obtain this EC Diabolus, start the Mission Bad Standing and go to Brian's Safehouse as instructed. Get in his Safehouse and take out the Enemies protecting Brian. Once you get to Brian, execute or spare him to pass the Mission. I suggest sparing him so you can get an extra Random Encounter Side Mission from him later on, but it's your Choice. Once the Mission is passed, go outside at the back of the House and you'll see this Diabolus with EC Light Brown Frame there. Simply get on it and park it at a Parking Spot to store it.

2.4. Presidente with EC Black Rims
Mission: Heavy Toll (Fail)
How to Obtain: This Presidente with EC Black Rims is Black in Body Color, but the Body Color isn't Special. What makes it Special are the EC Black Rims, Traffic Presidentes have Black Poly/Dark Grey or Silver Rims, no Traffic Presidente has Black Rims like this one. It also has no Luster, meaning the Luster is Black. To obtain both it, start the Mission Heavy Toll at Elizabeta's and you'll be sitting in this EC Presidente, simple park it at Niko's South Bohan Parking Spot nearby and then kill Malc and his Biker Gang to fail the Mission. A Failure Cutscene will appear and after the Cutscene, simply walk back to the Parking Spot to confirm the Presidente with EC Black Rims is still there before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving.

2.5. Unique Regina
Mission: Heavy Toll (Pass)
How to Obtain: The Unique Regina is an awesome Special Vehicle to have in the Collection, despite it being a Beater Kind of Vehicle, it's still Unique and One Time Only. To obtain it, start the Mission Heavy Toll and drive to the Charge Island Tool Booth ad wait for the Convoy to arrive. When the Convoy arrives, shoot and kill as many Enemies as possible inside all the Reginas and the Slamvan assuring not to cause too much Damage to the Slamvan or one of the Reginas. After taking everyone out, get into the Slamvan and use it to push one of the Reginas across the Bridge to Niko's South Bohan Parking Spot. On the way, make sure that all Dead Bodies in the Unique Regina are out of the Vehicle, since the Regina won't actually be saved in the Parking Spot if there are Corpses inside it, so get rid of them by ramming the Regina. Once that is done, secure the Unique Regina in the Parking Spot and then just drive the Slamvan to the Lockup to pass the Mission. Once the Mission is passed, go confirm that both the Unique Regina is still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving. Make note that if you are driving a Regina yourself, or have recently driven one as your previously touched Vehicle, others may spawn on the Road despite this being a Unique Vehicle. It's still Unique as it's not possible to get it in any way possible after you beat the Game.

2.6. Double T Custom with EC Dark Grey Fender (1 of 3)
Mission: Shifting Weight (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is your first Chance to get Malc's Double T Custom, it has a Dark Grey, or how the Color is called in the Game Files, a Black Poly Fender. The Orange Body Color can always be found during Traffic, but these Orange Double T Custom's have a Black Fender. You can't find an Orange Double T Custom with a Dark Grey Fender anywhere else in the Game, which makes this Double T Custom Special and EC. To obtain it, start Elizabeta's Mission Shifting Weight and then follow Malc and DeSean to the Meeting. Now, simply do the Drive-By Part like how you normally would until you pass the Mission. Once you pass the Mission, you will see Malc and DeSean drive off and you'll see a Normal Traffic Default Double T Custom nearby. Simply get on the nearby Bike and quickly drive where Malc has driven to and you will see his Double T Custom with EC Dark Grey Fender there, simply get on it and drive it to a Safehouse Parking Spot to store it there.

2.7. Unique Roman's Taxi
Mission: Roman's Holiday (Fail)
How to Obtain: This is the classic Roman's Taxi from IV, but in TLaD it's not EC, only Unique. It's basically just a renamed Esperanto, but still a very Unique Vehicle. To obtain it, start the Mission Roman's Holidays at Ashley's House and then go meet up with Malc as instructed. After the Cutscene, you will be inside a Presidente and will be insutruted to go to the Gambling Den in Schottler. At this time, get your Phone and call Roman's Cab Depot at 555-2222 to lure Roman to come pick up Johnny and Malc up. When he arrives in the Unique Roman's Taxi, walk up to it and a Cutscene will take place. After the Cutscene, immediately get out of Roman's Taxi and shoot and kill Malc to fail the Mission.  After the Mission fails, take the Unique Roman's Taxi back to a Parking Spot to store it. Make sure all Dead Bodies are out of the Vehicle before storing it, since the Vehicle will vanish if there are Dead Bodies still inside it, simply do E-Brakes to make them fall out of the Vehicle. Make note that you need to fail the Mission to obtain it, because when you use it to pass the Mission, it will speed off and disappear after the Mission is passed, thus you absolutely need to fail it. Also, calling Roman is a quicker way to pass the Mission than by going to the Gambling Den to kidnap Roman.

2.8. Double T Custom with EC Dark Grey Fender (2 of 3)
Mission: Roman's Holiday (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is your first Chance to get Malc's Double T Custom, it has a Dark Grey, or how the Color is called in the Game Files, a Black Poly Fender. The Orange Body Color can always be found during Traffic, but these Orange Double T Custom's have a Black Fender. You can't find an Orange Double T Custom with a Dark Grey Fender anywhere else in the Game, which makes this Double T Custom Special and EC. It's better to get the EC Double T Custom from Shifting Weight or from Malc's First Random Encounter as this one from Roman's Holiday is a bit more time consuming to obtain with passing the Mission. If you want to get it from this Mission, start Roman's Holiday and go meet up with Malc as instructed. After the Cutscene you will be sitting in Malc's Presidente, turn your Camera to the left and you'll see Malc's EC Double T Custom parked there. Now, either double drive the Presidente and Double T Custom or push the Bike with your Presidente to a Parking Spot. Double driving means to get out of the Presidente, run to the Double T Custom and drive it a bit up the Road, then get off from it and run towards the Car, then get in it and drive it a bit ahead the Bike, repeat the process until you're at a Parking Spot. When you're there, park the Double T Custom with EC Dark Grey Fender on the Parking Spot and then get back in the Presidente. Now, simply kidnap Roman to pass the Mission as usual. Once the Mission is passed, go confirm that it's still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving.

2.9. Zombie with EC Black Rims
Mission: Collector's Item (Fail)
How to Obtain: This Zombie is an ordinary Zombie with Special EC Black Rimmed Tires, all other Zombies have White Rims and the Lost Zombies have Red Rims, thus making this Zombie extra Special because of to the Black Rims. It also needs a Mission Failure. To obtain this EC Zombie, start the Mission Collector's Item with Ray's Phone Call and go through the Mission like normal until you reach the end where you are instructed to go to Jim and give him the Money after escaping the Museum and killing off Ray's Henchmen. The Zombie with EC Black Rims will be sitting there right next to Jim and a Lost MC Member, simply approach the Bikes without activating the Ending Cutscene and shoot at them to fail the Mission. Once the Mission is failed, just get onto the EC Zombie and store it back to a Parking Spot. Simple.

3.0. EC White Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill
Mission: Collector's Item (Pass)
How to Obtain: This will be an explanation on how to get both the EC White Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill and the Black Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill with passing the Mission at the same time. Make note that the White one is EC, while the Black one is not EC. Both of them have a Hybrid Grill which can't be found anywhere else, meaning it has both the Normal PMP 600 Grill and the Mafia PMP 600 Grill at the same time on the Vehicle. To get them, start the Mission Collector's Item and head to the Museum. When you arrive, you will see some of these Black  and EC White Mafia PMP 600s with a Hybrid Grill scattered around the Libertonian Museum. Before going into the Yellow Marker, simply jack a Black or EC White PMP 600 and drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it and then come back and jack a Black or EC White PMP 600 and drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it. Once both PMP 600s are in the Parking Spot, go back to the Museum and do the rest like normal until the Mission is passed. Once the Mission is passed after getting the Money back to Jim, go confirm that both of the PMP 600s are still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. If you store a Special Vehicle taken from a Mission while the Mission is still on and not passed or failed, the Game doesn't fully acknowledge the Special Vehicle is stored in the Parking Spot so if you would save the Game and then reload without checking on it, it would disappear. So be sure to confirm that it's still there before saving. Alternatively, you can park either the Black or EC White PMP 600 in a Parking Spot and then return to the Museum and do the Mission like normal by fighting your way out of the Museum. When you get out and are chasing more of Ray's Henchmen, simply take the Black or EC White PMP 600 that isn't stored at the Parking Spot yet and finish the Mission while driving it. Make note that sometimes Ray's Henchmen will be scripted to take a certain Black or EC White PMP 600 during the Chase at the end of the Mission. If this is the case with one or both PMP 600s you took back to a Parking Spot, they will disappear after the Mission is over. It may take some persistence to get both of these PMP 600s at the same time while passing the Mission.

3.1. Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill
Mission: Collector's Item (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 3.0. of the Guide to know how to get both the EC White Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill and Black Mafia PMP 600 with Hybrid Grill at the same time while passing the Mission. It's the same exact Method to get it. Make note that the White Mafia PMP 600 is truly EC, while this Black one is not EC. Both PMP 600s are Special because they have a Hybrid Grill, meaning they both have the Normal PMP 600 Grill and the Mafia PMP 600 Grill at the same time.

3.2. Unique/Lustered Black Laundromat (2 of 2)
Mission: Get Lost (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is an explanation on how to obtain both the Unique/Lustered Black Laundromat and the Unique Prison Bus at the same time while passing Get Lost. This task is one of the hardest and most time consuming task in all of TLaD. However, if you have patience, it shouldn't be that bad. Both Vehicles are Unique, but the Laundromat is Black in Body Color which isn't Special and has a random Luster on it every time you start the Mission. I suggest getting one of the Blue, Green, Orange, Purple, Red or Yellow Lusters which can be found on the Unique/Lustered Laundromat. To get the Luster you want, you will need to keep reloading the Game until the Luster you're looking for gets chosen to spawn on the Laundromat. Sometimes the Laundromat tends to not have a Luster at all, meaning the Luster is Black like the Body Color or the Luster is some kind of Grey which is very similar to Black, so if that is the case, you will also need to reload until it spawns with a Luster. If it has a Black Poly Luster, then it'll just be a Unique Laundromat, as the Black Body Color and Black Poly Luster is found in Traffic. For years, there was a much more luck based Method in order to obtain these two Special Vehicles from Get Lost, but there is a much better Method of which I will be explaining. Start the Final Mission of TLaD, Get Lost, and head to the Prison as instructed. When you enter the Prison by blowing up the Prison Doors, you will see both the Laundromat and Prison Bus sitting there, however, Guards will sometimes use them as cover and they can take a lot of gunfire and become weaker. Try to keep them in tact as best you can since you'll be pushing both the Laundromat and Prison Bus back to Brian's Safehouse Parking Spot later on. Make your way through the Prison until you confront Billy and kill him. On the way out, however, stop and park your Hexer inside the Prison in the lot where the Laundromat and Prison Bus are sitting in. At this time, go on foot to the southern end of Latchkey Ave and call 911 and request a Fire Truck. The Fire Truck should come and spawn at the northern end of the Road coming toward you. Jack the Fire Truck and use it to carefully push both the Unique/Lustered Laundromat and Unique Prison Bus out into the street. What you'll have to do from this point forward is have good Camera Control and keep the Camera on the Fire Truck, Laundromat, and Prison Bus at all times while double driving the Hexer along with the Fire Truck pushing both Special Vehicles all the way back to Brian's Safehouse Parking Spot. This will take you a long time, so be patient. Also, make sure you push with the back of the Fire Truck against the Laundromat and Prison Bus on the way back to Brian's Safehouse. You don't want to risk a Wanted Level which can be obtained by pushing both of these Vehicles violently and with the front of the Fire Truck. Also be careful of Terry and Clay. It's possible to fail the Mission due to Terry or Clay wrecking their Bike on the way back to Brian's Safehouse apparently because it's possible to run into them too hard or too many times. They like to get in the way of the Fire Truck when pushing the Vehicles back to Brian's Safehouse. If any of the Vehicles catch Fire on the way back, you can put the Fire out with the Fire Truck itself, but don't get any Cops see you do that, either, or you will get a Wanted Level. Double driving the Hexer along with the Fire Truck pushing both Special Vehicles means driving the Hexer up the Road a bit while keeping the Camera on the Fire Truck and both Special Vehicles, then park the Hexer and run on foot back to the Fire Truck and continue pushing the Special Vehicles up to where your Hexer was parked. Continue to do this task of double driving and Camera Control until you get back to Brian's Safehouse. When you arrive back to the Safehouse, push both the Unique/Lustered Black Laundromat into the Parking Spot as well as the Unique Prison Bus and ditch the Fire Truck. Brian's Safehouse Parking Spot will be just long enough to accommodate both Special Vehicles. The Prison Bus or Laundromat might slightly be on top of the Sidewalk, but that's fine and they will save without an issue. Then just drive the Hexer with the rest of the Gang back to the Clubhouse and pass the Mission like normal. Once the Mission is passed, go confirm that both the Laundromat and Prison Bus are still in the Parking Spot before moving on and saving the Game. You will be teleported to Brian's Safehouse anyways, so there's not a reason to actually confirm them. If you managed to pull this off, then congratulations! This is the hardest task you will face in TLaD. The Laundromat is one of the few Special Vehicles in TLaD that has a Random Luster, so it's a rather nice Special Vehicle for your Collection. Also make note that if you are driving a Laundromat yourself, or have recently driven one as your previously touched Vehicle, others may spawn on the Road despite this being a Unique Vehicle. It's still Unique as you can't get this Vehicle in Traffic in any way possible but to drive it yourself.
 

3.3. Unique Prison Bus (2 of 2)
Mission: Get Lost (Pass)
How to Obtain: Check out 3.2. to know how to obtain both the Unique/Lustered Black Laundromat and the Unique Prison Bus while passing the Mission Get Lost at the same time. It's the hardest task to do in TLaD, so good luck. It's best to get this Unique Prison Bus from Get Lost as you can get it and pass the Mission, unlike in Off Route where you need to fail the Mission and use a Replay just to obtain it. So if you want a Unique Prison Bus and if you care about Stats, get this one from Get Lost.

3.4. EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus (5 of 5)
Mission: Brian Jeremy Random Encounter
How to Obtain: This Random Encounter is only available if you spare Brian during the Mission Bad Standing. If you killed him during the Mission, then this EC Crimson and Yellow Diabolus won't be obtainable for the fifth time in the Game. His EC Diabolus has a Deep Crimson Body Color and has some Yellow on the Frame. Also, this Random Encounter is not required for 100% Completion. To get this one, locate Brian's Random Encounter but don't get close enough to trigger it. Aim a Gun in the direction of Brian and shoot which will cancel the Mission. Brian will run off leaving the EC Crimson Diabolus with Yellow Frame behind. Simple get onto it and drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD whether passed of failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats. 

3.5. Lustered Bright Red Turismo
Mission: Dave Grossman Random Encounter (Fail, doesn't effect Stats)
How to Obtain: Firstly and very, very importantly, this Turismo has a chance of not being Special at all, while at other times it is Special. It has a Random Luster on it, but the Body Color is not EC. There is a Bright Red Turismo with a Yellow Luster in Traffic. So, very, very importantly, obtain this Lustered Bright Red Turismo when it doesn't have a Yellow Luster. You will usually see either a White or Yellow Luster on it. The White Luster will make this Vehicle Special, while the Yellow Luster will make it useless. The White Luster is actually either a Red or a Gray Luster, but in Game you will see a White Luster. The Red Luster is actually called Cabernet Red Poly, while the Gray one is Powter Gray Poly. The non-Special Yellow Luster is Taxi Yellow, but like already said, do not obtain it with the Yellow Luster as it won't be Special if you do it. To obtain it, start the Random Encounter Mission for Dave Grossman and get in a Car. Now, drive to where the Lawyer is who will be driving this Lustered Bright Red Turismo and simply follow him back to his House in Alderney. When you get up to him, look at the Luster that this Turismo has, if it's Yellow, reload the Game, if it's not Yellow then you can obtain it as it's a Special Vehicle. Just simply tail him all the way back to his House in Alderney and eventually the Random Encounter will fail when the Lawyer pulls into his Driveway. After the Random Encounter fails, you will see his Lustered Bright Red Turismo still sitting in the Driveway. Jack a random Vehicle from traffic or call 911 and request a Fire Truck or Ambulance and use it to push the Lustered Turismo all the way back to Niko's Alderney Parking Spot. The Turismo is very light, so pushing it won't be an issue. Try not to push violently, though, or it may cause unwanted attention from the Police and may also damage the Turismo too much before getting it back to the Alderney Parking Spot. Once you manage to push it back to the Alderney Parking Spot, simply drive away around the block and when you return, the Turismo will be restored good as new and the Doors will now be unlocked. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

3.6. Double T Custom with EC Dark Grey Fender (2 of 2)
Mission: Malc First Random Encounter
How to Obtain: This is your last and best Chance to get Malc's Double T Custom, it has a Dark Grey, or how the Color is called in the Game Files, a Black Poly Fender. The Orange Body Color can always be found during Traffic, but these Orange Double T Custom's have a Black Fender. You can't find an Orange Double T Custom with a Dark Grey Fender anywhere else in the Game, which makes this Double T Custom Special and EC. To obtain it, locate Malc's First Random Encounter but don't trigger it by going to close. Simply shoot Malc before activating the Side Mission and he will run away. Now, simply get to the EC Double T Custom and park it at a Parking Spot. Simple to obtain. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD whether passed of failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

3.7. EC Green and Yellow Bati 800
Mission: Malc First Random Encounter (Pass)
How to Obtain: This is a Special EC Green and Yellow Bati 800, to obtain it, start Malc's First Random Encounter and you will be given this EC Bati 800 nearby. Simply get on it and follow Malc to DeSean, once you arrive by DeSean, follow him to some AoD Enemies and kill them. Once you've done it, the Random Encounter will be passed and you'll still be in possession of this EC Green and Yellow Bati 800. Just drive it back to a Parking Spot and store it. It looks pretty awesome in that Green and Yellow Body Color. At the end of the Side Mission, you will see Red Wolfsbanes and Blue Nightblades scattered around the Area, these Bikes are not Special and can always be found in Traffic around Northwood being driven by the Angels of Death. Previously they were thought to be EC, but they are not, eventhough their Color can't be found in Pay and Spray. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.
 
3.8. EC Black Huntley Sport
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - First Impressions (Pass)
How to Obtain: This EC Black Huntley Sport has a normal Traffic Black Body Color, but it has no Luster, meaning the Luster is Black. Traffic Black Huntley Sports always come in a Luster, which makes this Huntley Sport EC. It's not called Lustered because the Luster is always set to be Black and the Luster is not Random. To obtain it, start the Side Mission First Impressions by calling Stubbs for a Job and make your way to the Cafe. When you arrive, you will see this EC Black Huntley Sport and a normal Black Oracle outside of the Cafe parked to the side of the Road. Just jack the EC Black Huntley Sport and eventually the enemies will leave the Cafe and start chasing you. Just kill the Enemies and the Mission will be passed. After the Mission Pass, you will be in possession of the EC Huntley Sport, now simply drive it back to a Parking Spot and store it. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

3.9. Unique/EC Orange and Black Infernus
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - Knowing Me, Knowing You (Fail, doesn't effect Stats)
How to Obtain: This is Bryce's Infernus that is given to Niko in IV with the same Orange Colors with a Black Stripe and also the only time you'll see an Infernus in TLaD. It can spawn with or without a Spoiler, so just reload the Game until you get the Variation that you prefer. To obtain it, start the Side Mission Knowing Me, Knowing You by calling Stubbs for a Job and head to the Location of where you are instructed to steal the Infernus. Simply get inside the Unique/EC Infernus and ignore what you are instructed to do. Just drive it back to any Parking Spot and store it. Once it's secured in the Parking Spot, get another random Vehicle and just wait until the Timer runs out and the Mission fails. Once the Mission has failed, drive around the Block away from the Parking Spot and when you return, the Unique/EC Orange and Orange Infernus will be sitting there and the Doors will be unlocked. Also make note that if you are driving an Infernus yourself, or have recently driven one as your previously touched Vehicle, others may spawn on the Road despite this being a Unique Vehicle. It's still a Unique Vehicle as it can't spawn in any other way in TLaD. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

4.0. EC Light Blue and Lustered Habanero
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - Phone Ho! (Pass, or Fail, doesn't effect Stats)
How to Obtain: This is a Light Blue Special Body Color Habanero with a random Luster on it, even though the Luster can't be seen very good on it during Gameplay, it's still Randomly Lustered. There are three Special Vehicles in Phone Ho!, so if you want all of them, I suggest getting the Habanero and Sentinel with Fail and the Cognoscenti with Pass. You can pass the Mission to get the Habanero, but it's not needed. It's also possible to get both the Habanero and Cognoscenti with Pass, but that's very time consuming and you need to fail the Mission for the Sentinel as you can't pass to get it anyways. Either way, failing a Side Mission doesn't effect your Stats. To get this EC/Lustered Habanero, start the Side Mission Phone Ho! by calling Stubbs for a Job and head to the Vantage Point on the Roof. Moments after, the EC Light Blue and Lustered Habanero will appear and pick up a Hooker. At this point, just jump off the Roof and run towards the EC/Lustered Habanero and jack it. Drive away to take it back to the Parking Spot to store it, while the Side Mission fails shortly after. When you've done it, you've obtained the EC Light Blue and Lustered Habanero. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

4.1. EC White and Black and Lustered Sentinel
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - Phone Ho! (Fail, doesn't effect Stats)
How to Obtain: This Sentinel has a Special White Body Color and Special Pitch Black Trims and also has a random Luster on it, even though the Luster can't be seen very good on it during Gameplay, it's still Randomly Lustered. You may see a very similar Sentinel in Traffic, but when you compare them side by side, you will see that the EC/Lustered Sentinel has a Whiter Body Color and that it has Darker Rims. Both Color Features on it are Special. To get this EC/Lustered Sentinel, start the Side Mission Phone Ho! by calling Stubbs for a Job and head to the Vantage Point on the Roof. Moments after, the Habanero will appear and pick up a Hooker, just wait until it drives away so that the EC/Lustered Sentinel comes around the corner. When it arrives, just jump off the Roof and run towards the EC/Lustered Sentinel and jack it. The Side Mission will immediately fail for spooking the Hookers. Now, drive away to take it back to the Parking Spot to store it. When you've done it, you've obtained the EC White and Black and Lustered Sentinel. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

4.2. EC Bright Red Cognoscenti
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - Phone Ho! (Pass, or Fail, doesn't effect Stats)
How to Obtain: This Cognoscenti has a Special Bright Red Color. To get this EC Cognoscenti, start the Side Mission Phone Ho! by calling Stubbs for a Job and head to the Vantage Point on the Roof. You will first see the Habanero and Sentinel, and shortly after the EC Bright Red Cognoscenti will come around bring driven by the Politician. When the Politician comes, take the Photo of him with your Phone and send it to Stubbs. As soon as the Photo is sent, the Mission will be passed and all you have to do is jump off the Roof and either kill the Politician and claim his EC Cognoscenti or try and block his path and just jack it from him. Once you're in possession of the EC Bright Red Cognoscenti, just drive it back to a parking space and store it. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.
 
4.3. Dukes with Missing Hood Scoop
Mission: Stubbs' Dirty Laundry - Communication Breakdown (Pass)
How to Obtain: You can also call this a NE Dukes (No Extra), which means it has something missing from the Vehicle which makes it Special. To obtain this Dukes with Missing Hood Scoop, start the Side Mission Communication Breakdown by calling Stubbs for a Job and go to meet the contact. When you arrive, a Cutscene will take place and after the Cutscene, you will be standing right next to the Dukes with Missing Hood Scoop while the Contact drives away in it. As quickly as you can, just pull out a Gun and shoot and kill the Contact driving away and then claim his NE Dukes after the Mission is passed. Just drive it back to a Parking Spot to store it. Make note that the Missing Hood Scoop doesn't always appear during the Mission. If that is the case, you must reload until it spawns without it. Make note that Side Missions in TLaD, whether passed or failed, do not get added to any Mission Stats in the Pause Menu. So failing a Side Mission to obtain a Special Vehicle won't be counted against you in the Stats.

Good stuff! :)  Keep 'em coming ;)  Like I told you in PM, I need all the help I can get with the Videos since there is dick on Youtube for the HD Era GTA's and Special Vehicles.  There is hundreds of Videos for the 3D Era GTA's, but now it's time to get the HD Era known.  This should help out a lot of people.  Will add it into the Guide now.  I added in the other Video you showed me in PM earlier.

 

@Bender., I recommend turning AUTOSAVE OFF

 

That truly can f*ck you over big time when it saves...After losing a Vehicle or f*cking something up...

Well, like I first said...Sometime in July.  Well...It's July.  After I finish this one, I will work on GTA IV and then TBoGT.  We'll see if I got any steam left for GTA V once I finish off the IV Trilogy GTA's...

 

Luckily Bender. is helping record all these Vehicles.  It's good to see Videos going along with walls of text for better understanding...

Awesome!  You plan on recording the missing Vehicles, though?  You're jumping around I noticed.  Like, you got the Videos for 1.2. and 1.3., but not 1.0. or 1.1.

 

It's no rush, but don't forget!  I'd imagine those in ...Clean and Serene are very easy to get...

Nice!  It's nothing to worry about.  Afterall, it's been years these HD Era GTA's have been out, but no Videos are out there for them, so it's good they are coming to light now.  Similar to jam8tone's Channel...He's the only one out there who has a FULL Guide for LCS/VCS...Nobody has extensive Videos for those games like he does.  So I reckon when all is said and done, your Channel will be the one to go to for the HD Era Videos :D :p

I'll add it in shortly.  I will watch it first and also add another entry or two into the Guide, too.

 

EDIT: Added into the Guide.  Btw, the only 2 Missions Failures I have in my TLaD Save is from Off Route and Roman's Holiday.  But the next Save will only have 1, from Roman's Holiday, and I will pass Get Lost while obtaining the Unique Prison Bus and the Unique/EC Black Laundromat.

Thanks, however, that Schafter is already in the Guide...

 

I also think the same exact Schafter can be obtained during a Gang War with the Russians.  They drive them and it looks like they have a Silver Grill, Black Rims, and all Black Primary Color, just like the ones in Politics...

Alright, the Guide is finished.  If anyone sees any errors or notices anything that isn't right, let me know and I will fix it.  As I said since before starting this Guide, I didn't have much to go off of since most information pertaining to TLaD Special Vehicles is outdated, some information even not correct.  Furthermore, I only ever obtained a handful of Special Vehicles in TLaD, thus not having the knowledge of the entire database from my own personal experience.  Whereas, I've obtained every Vehicle that practically exists in III, VC, SA, LCS, and VCS so writing those Guides were a lot easier since I was able to write from personal experience.

Actually, been waiting a while for this guide. Only thing is I still have LCS (almost done), VCS and IV to finish before I start on TLAD so this guide will be quite useful in the coming months. Good job finishing it.

Thanks, but it's reminding me a lot of CW Guide, which is another HD Era GTA and the Guide that not many people are looking into...These don't get any replies and people looking into anything in these Games.  There's gotta be a reason not many Videos are out there for such HD Era GTA Games.  Nobody seems to care for the HD Era and Special Vehicle Collecting.

 

I can see why that is, but I personally like writing up the Guides in general, since it refreshes my own knowledge about the Games.  Most Vehicles in the HD Era, I guess are boring and too easy to obtain.  Just like in this Guide, everything is a 1 or 2 star difficulty with the occasional 3 star....Then only 2 Vehicles which are a 5 star, found in the last Story Mission, Get Lost.  The only challenging task in the entire game is getting the Unique/EC Black Laundromat and Unique Prison Bus at the same time and passing the Mission.  Other than that, there isn't much else that is worthy of giving yourself a pat on the back for :D :p

I've been getting some of my Facts from HERE, however in this Guide, it makes no mention of that.  There is a Phantom driven by Russians, but it's said to be Black and not special.  You sure it's the Mafia and not Russians?  Each Gang has signature Vehicles, some special, some not during Gang Wars and I can't recall seeing any Phantoms driven by the Mafia, but the Russians.  Is the Green Luster special?  If you can confirm, I will add it into the Mafia Gang Vehicles Section...

 

Also, some of the things said in that Guide aren't accurate.  Like, a Double T Custom, Hakuchou Custom, Gang Burrito, Slamvan, etc aren't considered Unique Vehicles, but I don't see how they aren't Unique Vehicles...None spawn on the streets at all, and only can be found in Missions, Gang Wars, and Races...They do, however, spawn if you are driving them except for Gang Burritos and Slamvans, of course.

The Russians drive a black Stretch as a convoy target vehicle. The Mafia uses a Green Lustered Phantom.

It's during a Convoy Gang War with the Mafia?  Ok, I will put it into the Guide! :D :p

 

Thanks for contributing...

 

Btw, you should record all the HD Era Videos whenever you get your PC back up and working for recording, or whatever.  Your Channel can be like jam8tone's Channel is for LCS/VCS, but yours will be for the HD Era...It pisses me off how there is nothing out there at all for the HD Era besides a handful of Videos here and there but nothing extensive...

Yeah, when it comes to TLaD, I prefer the Unique Vehicles over everything else.  If there is room left, then I get some EC's :D :p  Since Vehicles aren't immune to anything in the HD Era except for IV and CW, I like the Unique Vehicles the most.

Btw, if you are interested in making Videos for the Guide, go for it.  I can add them in.  In the case of TLaD, since not many Videos are out there, I certainly will add in the Video.  Any Video is better than no Video at all.  When it came to my 3D Era GTA Guides, I put the best Videos in, despite Videos out there for the same exact Vehicle.  I picked the best.  But since TLaD has nothing, all Videos will be added....Whoever uploads them and posts them first, I will put them into the Guide...
