Vapid Chino Appreciation Thread

Recommended Posts

livejoker

I love this car :) finally settled on a colour - I was gonna pimp it out but I went with an authentic 'sixties' style Chino in the end.

This one looks so good I just had to mimic its style! I was going for a lowrider look but it just doesn't go down low enough (and I don't want to shoot it up - looks bad for pictures if holes show up for others).

 

I try every update vehicle in SP and I thought the offroad car/truck hybrid would be the one I'd like the most but it was between this car and the Coquette-rear-stickered-on-this-Casco-front car (lazy design, if you ask me) because it sounded so badass with the backfire. The Chino has a bit of backfire but it's the idling V8-rumble sound that I love the most. It's also great offroad if you don't lower it. The suspension has some travel distance and it keeps going straight despite hitting bumps. It's great!

 

I'm not quite sure if the color I picked will stick (classic - Cabernet Red for anyone interested - black wheels with the hub design) but I like the overall style. It reminds me of a 60's/70's car that a prison warden would drive...so I took it to the prison (I also realized that the best update vehicles are ones that fit in Sandy Shores/Grapeseed/Paleto Bay where it looks great beside a seedy hotel or a trailer home):

Thanks Coleco for the great design idea. :)

The guy somewhere above me inspired me with his color on his Chino, so I had to replicate it.. Nontheless I took some pictures with a few buddy's of mine.

Like the Virgo before it the chino works quite well at being a donk. I mean it's stock rims are pretty much the same size as the SUV rims. Although I think like the Virgo it's meant to be a restomod. Oh well went for a donk look anyway but kept the black paint.

Quick question for the guys in the know - should a late '60s car have blue plates, or black plates? :)

What colour is that?

Spot on! :D Nautical Blue metallic with Ice White Pearl.

 

Wow, so much love for my humble Chino... i'm bemused and flattered! I need to change those anachronistic plates though... will probably return with some more pics too.

 

Lots of really nice looking Chinos in the thread, guys - definitely my favourite car in the update!

Lmao. Difference is I used some sort of Blue pearl, and the rims offcourse.

 

Also, a late 60's car can either have a Black or Blue plate, whatever you like.

I love the Chino so much, I broke my "I won't own the same car on both characters" rule and ended up getting one for both of my characters. This is honestly my favorite Vapid in the game now. Holy hell it looks so frickin' good. Anyway, here are both of my Chinos.

 

Zach's Chino.

Hector's Chino. Black classic rods look so damn good on it.

All roleplaying has ended. You win! Well done on the lisence plate.

 

 

 

Thx. I was gonna put something like GRSYKNLL but i didn't know if anyone would get the reference. that sniper pic was kind of a bitch to take, lol. i had to quickly double tap the xbox one button and then hit Y for the screenshot before the game jumped me out of the sniper view (which it does as soon as you minimize the game to get the screenshot). I got lucky and got it to take it.

The brake pads stick through most of the custom wheels. The Dune Loader has it too.

Who is GiantsGiants? People keep comparing that guy to me, but I only joined yesterday. I don't know the users too well.

 

Also, the warrener was dew yellow, not lime green.

Your taste in car colors. GG loves making cars in GTA V in the wackiest (and often ugliest) color combos.

The pre-release shot had me worried, but it's a cool car.

Played up the circa '63 Continental look for mine.

Only things about it that bother me is that the grill covering the headlights isn't optional.. and the fact that the front wheels actually stick out of the fenders, which is retarded. Oh well.

Testing this out in SP last night, so the color wasn't what I wanted, but very nice cruising car.

Was heading to Grove to get some proper shots, but this turned out pretty good. Minus the car coming into frame right.

The standard rims are some dull paint color which looks really bad with all the chrome around it.
