The Vapid Stanier Appreciation Thread

My Stanier specifically isn't interesting looking enough to photograph.

 

NOTHING TO SEE HERE FELLAS

 

Aside from my (large collection of) Trucks this is probably my favorite 4 door I own

Unmarked Police Stanier - with Solid coloured Smoothies. IMO, they're better to use than the Classic Rods, as their chrome part is smaller, and matches more with the actual utility/industrial service wheels. LtnddMS.png

Wait, so did you have to do a glitch to get those wheels on there? Or are they available normally ?

Another car I've had since the ps3 days although several different colors before settling on white.

This one is the second one I kept. I had other second Staniers but they got sold as I ran out of garage space.

Wish it didn’t sound like a straight 6. The Washington’s exhaust note would’ve fit much better. Considering they’re the same car, after all

 

still want the 1998-2011 facelift one, with CVPI mods.

I went with the full government issue look. After seeing all the shiny paint jobs here, I'm thinking I might change it from matte to mettallic...

 

I've had this in my garage since day one, and apart from wishing it had a bit more oompf, I love it.

Few things will ever achieve the ubiquity of the Vapid Stanier. We've all been in the back of one—the only differentiating factor being whether or not our hands were cuffed. First offered as a package for Vapid's 1955 sedans, the Stanier met some success, but it would be nothing compared to the stardom it would experience almost four decades later.

 

A 1993 Stanier ad I managed to get my hands on after doing some digging on a few collector's sites

R2ksx3G.png

 

     The Stanier name would be resurrected in 1980 by a combination of cocaine and botox, and kept healthy through a strict jazzercise regiment. Land-yachts were in their twilight years; a result of increasing gas prices, and a sentiment that would be further cemented by yet another oil crash in the mid-1980's. But the Stanier hadn't matured yet. It wouldn't be until 1993 that it finally wiped its nose, bought a suit and got itself a job. Surprisingly, it was a hit. Featuring sleek and refined bodywork, a soft suspension and accommodating interior, Vapid achieved a balance between economy and luxury with their new flagship car. The Stanier was, in all ways, remarkably unremarkable. A perfect vehicle for middle-class Americans.

 

My 1993 Stanier LX

     The Stanier truly was the rising sun upon the car industry we know today. Vehicles haven't exactly been getting smaller these days, though luckily MPG numbers haven't either, and you can thank the Stanier for that. With its unnecessarily large size, inoffensive looks, its easy marketability and ability to be mass-produced, the only thing the Stanier was missing was a personality and better mileage. But then again, so were the boomers and lower-middle class Americans eating straight out of its hand. With that said, the Stanier wasn't a complete drag.

 

jEo0LST.png

 

     It was lean and athletic enough to warrant being purchased en masse for every police department in America, after all. Parts were cheap and easy to access, which allowed for it to be modified effortlessly as well. This is something I realized quickly, at the price of one too many traffic tickets. Moreover, the Stanier was cheap—perhaps embarrassingly so today. $10,000 will land you a mint condition, museum-grade example. 0-60 times were around eight seconds stock, and they were whatever the hell they needed to be for a police vehicle. The suspension was versatile enough to warrant some off road use when necessary, and handling was reliable, if not predictable.

     All in all, it may not be hip, it may not be cool, but I won't be letting go of the keys to my Stanier anytime soon. She's got more history in her engine bay alone than any of your fancy newfangled hypercars, and her smile is as charming as ever.

Decided last night that I wanted a fourth Crown Victoria lookalike. So I sold my Felon sedan and stole another one of these.

Went for more of a sporty look than my typical old folks car look.

Yeah okay, so the Stanier was marketed as a soft riding boat, most happy floating down the highway at 80 mph. 

YwhteedHoE2SGMo8z9phbA_0_0.jpg?downsize=

 

A car that will get you to your destination in cloud like comfort. 

3aY_sDOwaEe1-BDIhTnR1Q_0_0.jpg?downsize=

 

Certainly not for speeding through winding mountain roads...

J6_8JKT8f0Wf5dVNbOZ7aQ_0_0.jpg?downsize=

 

Or drifting down said winding mountain roads...

cHJOwUcdkkmrlC1Er9UD0Q_0_0.jpg?downsize=

 

But those are issues for the old man's Stanier.

The Stanier LX Sport will eat up miles of twisty roads with all the grace of a muscle car, and the elegance of a near luxury car.

To my surprise, my second character didn't have one of these. So I fixed that and stole three of them, but the third one is waiting for an easier merge glitch.

it's actually a shame, we can't have these in online to this date. 

 

Not only does it look good, it also has one of the best suspension animations in the game, if not the best.

I would definitely get one if the grill was chrome or aluminium painted.
