Welcome enthusiast to issue #18 of Customs, Cruisers, and Classics! The last vehicle of the grueling Gunrunning DLC drip-feed has arrived and it is the Ocelot Ardent! No new additional features in this issue but the previous features are here to stay! We also have awesome photographer and community member, the_potato as our featured photographer!


Unfortunately, no one found my hidden Easter egg in the last issue (highlight the space between the models photos 2&3 in Issue #17) so none of you scallywags will be getting a slightly used 4GB Microsoft Zune! so I won't be hiding anymore Easter eggs in the future...
or will I.

Thank you very much for your continued support of CC&C, please Enjoy!

The Ocelot Ardent

As you probably already know by now, the Ocelot Ardent has been released and is the last vehicles to be released as part of the Gunrunning update. Did Rockstar save the best for last? Well, for starters it features a mid-engine rear wheel drive layout and is part of the Sports Classics class. One unusual feature that the Ardent possesses is its ability to also... fire bullets from its front bumper. The vehicle does not have bullet proof or bullet resistant windows and it takes a hit like any ordinary car, armor wise.
 
Many members had taken note of its front bumper guns before its initial release and speculated that the ardent was going to be a subversive vehicle, inspired after the most famous Lotus Espirits of all time from the James Bond classic, "The Spy That Loved me."

The Lotus Esprit S1 from The Spy Who Loved Me (1977)
 
Sadly, this was not the case as the Ardent's description on Warstock Cache & Carry even mentions it is not submersible and you will more than likely drown:
 

"It's a rare car that allows you to be perfectly composed, effortlessly suave and extraordinarily violent all at the same time - and yet, somehow, the Ardent does all that and more. Behind the wheel of this masterpiece there's nothing you can't do: lose your pursuers, pop the dual machine guns, gun down the survivors, drop a pithy remark, open the champagne, have a quickie, drive into the sea, realize you've made a terrible mistake, and swiftly drown."

So put away your tuxedo and save your money from those insurance bills.

The Ocelot Ardent mostly resembles a Lotus Espirit (1987-93).
 
There are many other concerns numerous buyers are having with the Ardent such as, not having the option to change the interior color, its pixelated and stretched out front license plate, non-working fog lights, its tendencies to not clear sidewalk curbs, and probably the most annoying of all -it can't be raced! That's right, despite its positives of being a great handling, zippy car, its not allowed in races due to it being a "weaponized" vehicle! We can only hope Rockstar allows this great looking car into the races someday to compete with the top contenders of its class such as the Turismo Classic, Cheetah Classic, and Sterling GT.
 
The Ardent has a price tag of $1,150,000 and can be purchased on the Warstock Cache & Carry website. So maybe the Ardent was not exactly the best vehicle in the bunch. Do you have a favorite? Do you even play GTA anymore? The Ardent discussion continues HERE.


 

A Wild "Hunter" Appears!

Photo by: @Yan2295 via Twitter


In aircraft vehicle news, respected and trustworthy GTAF newtwork partner Yan2295 has raised a few eyebrows recently when he changed the background image of his Twitter account to an AH-64D Apache helicopter mod, which is what the Hunter in the GTA universe is based off of. This of course ignited hype rumors in the DLC Speculation Thread of the possibility of the Hunter or even a Gunrunning Part II DLC coming in the future. No official statement from Rockstar of the possibility of the Hunter or a Gunrunning II has been released, so don't get excited just yet.


**UPDATE**

Rockstar announced today, August 24th 2017, the latest installment for GTA Online, Smuggler's Run will be coming out on Aug 29th among many other aircraft vehicles, the Hunter will be one of them!

Bunch of cool guys with their beloved vehicles cruising around the map and no crashing, no guns blazing and talking about all sorts of things.

No preference, I shoot all sorts.
 
You always have a great variety of snaps!
What is your favorite vehicle in the GTA series of all time?
I would say, the Windsor from GTA San Andreas.
 
Is there a vehicle from any GTA series that you would want to see return?
There are so many! But since the Windsor is my favorite, I would have to stick to the GTA SA Windsor.

91-850-02.jpg
 
As an enthusiast, what is your biggest automotive pet peeves seen within the car community? ie: I hate really cambered cars! People who call themselves car people but hate on other foreign brands! etc
I find coal rollers and donks extremely stupid. I also don't like too much camber and extremely stretched tires!

I really wish there was an Extended Video Export on console :(
Is there anything you would like to see be added in GTAF in the future?
I cant think of anything at the moment. GTAF seems to be good the way it is currently.

Can anyone recommend a good and reliable photo hosting site that can also resize photos upon uploading? I know imgur is good but they do not have resizing options. Since the thread is pic heavy I try to keep the filesize down to improve load times. I've been using Postimage but if a photo is originally a .jpg it destroys the quality. Thanks!

Hey, I recognise that Windsor in the CC&C graphic! Never liked the owner of it though, such a tryhard posh type.

 

As always, a fantastic sound and an even more fantastic showcase!

Great edition! Glad I discovered this thru GTAF Weekly (better late than sorry). Also, select the text under this comment.

#2B4255 is the HEX code for the background color, paste it on the 'More Colors...' box for extra-secret messages.

Great issue! Imgur does actually give you the ability to resize, but the feature itself is very wonky and unpredictable. In my experience, it's almost like a hit and miss, where sometimes it works the way you want it to and then sometimes it doesn't.. which is why I typically just do it manually in a program like PS.

 

You should be able to see the Edit Image option once you hover over the image and then over the little drop down button.

fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu- I swear on my f*cking account that I found the easter egg in the last issue. Just didn't mention it cause I thought someone else found it already. Goddamnit. Here I was hoping I'd win a Zune, whatever that is.

I've got a suggestion. I think it was Mach that mentioned this trick (I can't recall) but basically for taking "action" shots you put the drunk shake at about 6-7 in Director Mode and, if done nicely, can mimic (on a poor level) shutter speed. Now I know many of the pics here are on PC or/and touched up via Photoshop for shutter speed. I'm wondering if it would be possible for the issue to sometimes feature car photography tips? More precisely, shutter speed. It makes any rolling shot come alive and not some static car in the street.
by the way, THIS is an easter egg.
Awesome issue as always. The day I go blind is the day I stop reading these. Braille version when?

Also, hidden easter egg in this post.

I believe so! Carrythxd had law enforcement Coquette in their photo in issue #16 but felt the focus was more on Emperor.

Oh I didn't know that about imgur, thanks for the tip Android! Since it isn't reliable I may just have to manually resize them and save them as png's it might be the only way for now!

I know exactly what you are talking about in terms of the drunk shake to give the background a blurry, in-motion feel. As you mentioned, the sad part about that is, although the car is in motion, the wheels don't have that spinny blur also known as the "stroboscopic effect" I think. I get turned off by using it I ended up just doing all of my blur in PS to capture the motion, or "rolling" shots. I'm obviously a console peasant.

AFTER

(obviously not as clean and crisp as extended video export, but with what limited PS skills I have, I try!)

 

In each interview I do ask the photographer for any tips but sometimes maybe they don't want to give away their secrets!

 

Braille version coming in 2032, I also found your easter egg when I quoted you :D
