Welcome enthusiast to another issue of Customs, Cruisers, and Classics! Last week the Custom Rides & Garages thread hit over 1,000 pages; then in just a few days, creeped pass 30,000 postings, hence the inspiration for today's featured showcase title! This week I interview talented photographer and community member, Maritza!

 

Bodywork Notes:
  • Added a new feature called "Let me play you the song of my people" or "Pure Sound" for short. Viewing great photos and reading interesting interviews of community members is great, but I wanted the readers to experience some excellent sounding machines to tickle those ear drums! 🔊
 

Thank you very much for the positive response on the previous issue, I hope I can continue to keep the quality of the issues up to par. Enjoy!

The arrival of the Nightshark by HVY is here! It has a price tag of $1,245,000 and is available for purchase at the Warstock Cache & Carry. Here are some worthy notes taken from the Nightshark:

 

-Can be modified at LSC or the MOC, but liveries must be added at MOC.
-No research projects needed
-Comes with machine guns operated by driver, but you can switch to personal weapons.
-It takes 5 sticky bombs to destroy at 100% armor, unoccupied. 9 sticky bombs while occupied/27 homing rockets. Just like the insurgent pickup.
-It's fast, currently getting around 107/108 consistently on the streets.
-Window armor plates do stop bullets at the front and rear, but not the sides (likely glitched). Glass is not bullet resistant.
-Window armor sacrifices ability to use personal weapons but not machine guns.
-Pretty good at ramming, roughly on par with kuruma.
-Insurance is about 15k
-Radar icon is like any other regular vehicle.
-Sell price with full modification is 872k
-It can tow the AA trailer
-It can be used in contact missions and heists
-Poor ground clearance, which hurts it for offroading. But it does grip well when climbing hills.
-Can not be used for races.
-Holds 4 people.
 

Many are speculating the Ocelot XA-21 is up next. We sha'll see!

Maritza is no stranger in the Custom Rides & Garages thread and being featured in these issues! Her shots always have a unique style to them and can be easily identified in the crowd. I interview Maritza to learn more about her taste in cars and try to uncover any secrets to her methods!
---
You recently changed your screen name, what name do the regulars in the Custom Rides thread know you best as?
 
What console do you primarily play on?
PS4, but I usually take photos on PC.
 
What got you interested in cars/bikes?
I've always had an interest in cars from looking at car features and builds, however I think GTA V and taking photos/editing really got me more into them.
 
How long have you been into the GTA series games?
I've been playing the GTA series since III.
 
Are you part of a GTA Online crew?
Goon Squad.
 
Hmm my invitation for Goon Squad probably got lost in the mail... Do you play with anyone from GTAF?
My bff Flaca! And ILL AUDIO.
 
Do you have a preference in what type of cars/bikes you shoot? (Japanese, American, Euro, etc)
Not particularly, I like all cars and bikes – whatever comes to mind at the time. If I had to choose, JDM or Euro.
 
Your photos are always so wonderful, I'm glad you shoot many types! What is your favorite vehicle in the GTA series of all time?
Declasse Tornado or any rusty car.
 
Is there a vehicle from any GTA series that you would want to see return?
Any of the rusty beaters from past games such as the Regina, Sabre and Vigero from IV, and the Clover from SA.
 
What is your favorite car or bike in real life?
Rover Coupe
 
Can you name your favorite car/racing game of all time?
Not strictly a car game, but definitely GTA V with the amount of options you have and for taking photos/editing.
 
Do you use any other type of photo editors or graphic mods (if PC user)?
I went through a lot of different graphic mods, but the vanilla game looks the best imo. I also use Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom to edit my photos.
 
Do you have any photography tips for the readers?
Take advantage of the Rockstar editor, use the manual focus and adjust for each photo you take; there's also the filters, use them with a lower opacity. Don't go overboard with editing, sometimes a subtle edit like a curve for contrast is all you need. You can also use car features for inspo or even photography ideas. Lastly, editing won't save a bad photo, always get a quality raw photo then edit it to enhance it even more.
 
Thank you for those tips! Is there anything you would like to see be added to GTAF in the future?
Yeah, can I get an award badge for loving Flaca's feet?
 
Speaking of feet... What's up with you and Flaca's feet?
We get up to a lot as seen from my posts, they're pretty hot – the ice cream melts as soon as I pour it on. You should see the amount of photos and backups I have...
 
Any other comments or shout outs?
Shoutout Flaca, Flaca's feet and ILL AUDIO. Also why no guy models for the spotlight? Thanks to V4S for the interview too.

Same here. The again, I made my first post in there in weeks, probably months, and I got in for the issue. Maybe I will just keep it exclusive and special to an irregular basis :p
