The Showroom: Albany Manana

Recommended Posts

J-Real

Before I head to bed after a very long day of work and school, I figured I might as well leave off with a showroom topic. Let's take a look at the Albany Manana.

Background/Design

Ahhh the Albany Manana, classic looking car, perfect for cruising around the ghetto neighborhoods of Los Santos. The Manana has been around since GTA III and continues to visually get better as the times pass. The name comes from the spanish language meaning "morning" or "tomorrow"... which is perfect because it's so slow that you might get to your destination the next day.

 

The Manana's design really has changed since it's first appearance, it went from a small city car to a 70's style lowrider. The design was inspired by classic buick cars with a mix of old school Cadillacs. It's currently in the sports classic category and seats two people including the driver.

 

Let's take a look at how much it has changed throughout the years (GTA III, LCS, VCS, VC, SA & IV)

180px-Manana-GTA3-front.jpg180px-Manana-GTALCS-front.jpg180px-Manana-GTAVCS-front.jpg180px-Manana-GTAVC-front.jpg180px-Manana-GTASA-front.jpg180px-Manana-GTA4-front.jpg

 

Speed - 4.0

Yes it's a really slow car but that's not the point of having one, it's mainly used for cruising around or to show off at car meet ups with other lowriders or sports classic cars. If you're looking for a fast car, then you better just skip this one.

 

Handling - 5.0

It doesn't have the best handling, but who needs handling when you're too busy showing it off? Even if you do end up buying the turbo for it, the acceleration and braking doesn't really help when trying to make sure you don't get a scratch on this thing :p

 

Overall Rating - 6.5

I love all the cars, regardless if they're slow or ugly. As long as they get me from point A to point B that's enough to get them a decent score. let's just get this straight, it's NOT for racing, it's simply a car for the looks and the status... Rockstar should definitely bring back the hydraulics. :p

 

So what do you guys think about the Albany Manana?

And if you happen to own one, make sure to post pictures!

I can't speak for the new Manana, but the one from GTA III was slow as hell but had good steering. I think that was the car used for the Dead Skunk mission, or whatever it was called.

Is this The Guy?

I had a problem, well maybe not a problem rather an annoyance, with my convertible Manana, it's why I switched to the hard top. My windows were always rolled up lol. I would get in the car in the garage and my windows were up, when i take it to repair the windows would disappear but when I leave it in my garage the windows roll back up. Bugged the hell out of me lol

 

But heres my Manana. No body mods, just engine upgrades and a simple paint job :D

Well that is your opinion there isn't it mate. I've got more compliments than any other car so I will take yours with a grain of salt. Tried with spoke rims but the green didnt seem to allow any of the colors to blend with just silver rims. Since this "LA" game is seriously lacking lowriders this is the best I can do to salve my lust.

is this car hard to find? I was thinking of getting one to replace my Issi but I'm worried that if the LSPD goes after me, they're gonna pit maneuver me into a post or something lol.

It has a medium level of difficulty in locating one, I found mine near the eastern LCS location (the one under the bridge).

 

But yeah it's not a car to use when doing police chases... it's only good for cruising around and modding lol.
