Has anyone seen a tampa

I'm 100% sure the car in the picture is not a Dukes. The Dukes' C-pillar doesn't meet the car's sides giving the car shoulders if you know what I mean. The car in the picture has C-pillars that go right out to the side.

The back does look like a Dukes; however after looking at the back window and noticing the carbon roof, it seems in fact it is not. The body does look like the Tampa; however the picture Indi posted, I recall it had a small vent on the bonnet, yet this one in the credits doesn't have one. The posture of the car also looks like a Dukes, but that maybe because it is on a slightly slanted hill.

We're talking about the photo captured from the intro here.

 

monocle.gif Look at the chrome stripe below the window of the car in the picture. Compare it to the chrome strip below the rear window of a Dukes. This comparison highlights the differences in the rear windows between the two cars. The car in the picture in question is definately not a Dukes.

This is what I'm talking about.

to me that one seems like a hybrid of a dukes (rear) sabre gt and an older style buffalo.

Back is similar but not the same. And the bonnet looks a little similar to the Brady Games screenshot of the Tampa.

 

The plot thickens.

I notice that the roof of the vehicle seems to be of the fabric sort.  I'm fairly certain that this isn't a vehicle I've already seen in the game.

 

The code responsible for the "Hot Coffee" mod was left on the Sand Andreas disc yet never made it into the final game.  This could perhaps be the case with the Tampa.  As somebody has already pointed out, the Brady game guide may not be correct due to R* having previously made changes to games, presumably after the guides have gone to press.

The dukes is about a foot or so longer than that car in the back end. Same with the front, too stubby.

Yes, we know; but we're talking about a car that we believe is the Tampa. After all that is the car we are trying to find, we don't care about no Dukes. tounge2.gif

Yeah. I just checked out a Sabre GT and it's not one of those either. I think we can say with a fair amount of confidence that the car in that picture is indeed the Tampa.

 

Now we can say that the code for the Tampa is in there and that at least there's a full model of the car. This means that the car is actually in the game and waiting to be found or it's waiting to be unlocked by a future download or something.

yer thats a tampa nice one guys the back looks a bit like a 1971 dodge challenger  biggrin.gif  more pieces to the puzzle =] !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If the back looks like a 1971 dodge challenger then it's probably the Dukes, not the Tampa.

the dukes is based on a charger not a challenger fool suicidal.gif

Well excuuuuuuuuuse me, not everyone knows cars so well...fool suicidal.gif

 

 

(although now i remember it's called charger, not challenger...got the names mixed up)

anyone knows if the newe cars in TLAD were in the standard GTAIV code as well? that could indeed mean that it's for a future DLC..

No. Way back in this topic somebody posted some code from the main game that didn't include the Tampa. It's only in the L&D code.

That def. is not a car that I have seen in the game yet. I am 99% sure it is a Tampa. It is not a Dukes because you can see the rear window is flush with the roofline. Plus the Dukes does not have a vinyl top that I have seen yet. The Stallion has a vinly top option but the trunk is too boxed off to be one. The closest thing I can think of is the Vigero because of the roofline but it is even a little different and the tailpan seems too slanted. From what I can tell, if that is indeed a Tampa, the car has a roofline of a '67-'68 Camaro (The Vigero has the roofline of a '69). The trunk and tailpan of a '60's notchback Mustang, the taillights are slightly visible. The front end is pulled from an early '70's Mustang, it is almost dead on. and the hood in the Brady Guide (which the overhead view of the car doesn't seem to have the same ram air style hood) screams Dodge Demon to me.

 

I am extremely psyched for this car and I believe I know the exact location of this recent shot. I think I already searched this area fairly well, but it can't hurt to look again. I hope this car is found soon! I have been craving a new muscle car in GTA: IV since I heard that DLC was announced!

 

-On a side note-

 

As aggravating as it has been, I have enjoyed this search so far because even though I have spent way too long just messing around with the city, there have been so many things I have found in this search that I never would have found without having a reason to search every nook and cranny of the city. This makes me think R* did this on purpose hence no one getting responses from emails. They like us making 17 page forums about hidden cars and spending hours each day searching the city with more relentlessness than we do when cleaning our own house (not that I would want to look in every nook and cranny of my apt.) All hail the kings of keeping the simple folk occupied away from that evil real world! I just hope that this car does actually exist in game like the Sultan RS and that I get to enjoy driving it soon!

Yeah it's searches like this that keep GTA games alive for so long. It's extra fun with GTA IV due to the insane depth and detail of the city.

Wow 17 pages already?

 

Anyway, why doesn't somebody got to that spot in the pic DURING the first mission. Since that is the intro cutscene then the car should be in that spot after you pick Billy up. So once you pick him up just go to where the car is in the cutscene.

 

And If you don't already know that location, it is the top Pay n Spray in Alderney.

Now with the TLAD codes, we can see that the Tampa has a very similar code to 2 mission specific vehicles. And someone had mentioned that the Tampa was missing code for one of the columns, but we can now see that all of the TLAD vehicles are missing that code, so this is not preventing the Tampa from spawning.

 

Now if the Tampa is mission specific and that is in fact the Tampa in the opening scene, the Tampa may only spawn for that opening cutscene. Therefore, it would be mission specific, or maybe cutscene specific. Who knows why Rockstar would model a whole new vehicle just so you can see it for a few seconds in a cutscene, but anything is possible...

I presume, as somebody posted earlier, that the minus sign at the end of the line must stop it spawning normally, as no other car in that file apart from those have the minus sign after it.
